CoolSculpting® - No Surgery, No Downtime
Most of us seem to have spots of exercise- and diet-resistant fat cells that just won’t go away. CoolSculpting® is the permanent, non-invasive fat loss solution that we offer at Constantine Cosmetic Surgery in our beautiful and private CoolSuite™.
Our treatment plans utilize Dual CoolSculpting, which means we can freeze twice the fat in half the time. We have the newest CoolSculpting hand-pieces which treat patients faster, more comfortable, and better. Our CoolSuite is centered around patient comfort complete with a big screen TV, and a private bathroom. We are a full body contouring center, if CoolSculpting isn’t right for you, we have several other options to offer.
Our patients love getting treated in our newly remodeled, state of the art facility.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting technology has been around and studied for over 20 years. It destroys stubborn fat cells safely and effectively while leaving healthy tissue intact, all without surgery, needles or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use clinically controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate resistant fat cells. Results are proven, noticeable, and lasting because once those fat cells are destroyed they are gone for good.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The CoolSculpting safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to -11˚ which effectively targets the fat cells that lie underneath the skin and above the muscle. The targeted fat cells are crystallized (frozen) while skin and muscle tissue remains healthy. Over time, the crystallized fat cells die and your body naturally processes and eliminates those cells.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Once the treated fat cells are gone, they will be gone for good. Our bodies don’t reproduce fat cells like we do skin cells. Those we have just get larger or smaller. This is why CoolSculpting spot treatments are the only way to get rid of stubborn diet- and exercise-resistant areas in the body for good.
Why Do I Need A Consultation?
CoolSculpting is a highly customized treatment which is dependent on your goals and your body composition. The first and most critical step, is to get your consultation by our CoolSculpting specialist, Carol Glines. During your consultation your problem areas and goals will be assessed, from there your personalized treatment plan will be created. From your consultation you will have a timeline for your cycles, expected costs and all appointments for your Dual Sculpting set up. Call us at 801-261-3637 to book yours today!!
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments will be determined by our CoolSculpting specialist based on your desired outcome. We generally recommend a series of two sessions per area for best outcomes, however, some people may reach their desired goal after just one session.
How Long Does It Take?
A CoolSculpting session - 1 cycle - generally takes from 25-45 minutes depending on the body area and hand-piece used. However, since we offer Dual Sculpting, we can do two cycles at once to maximize your time.
What Does It Feel Like?
Once the hand-piece is placed, the vacuum is activated which pulls your skin and the fat underneath into the comfort cup. You may feel a bubbling effect as it seals. Second, the cooling is turned on. This will feel very cold or sometimes even hot as your body adjusts. Within a few minutes, these sensations soon dissipate. Most people read, watch television, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatments!
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Yes! CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and with over one million treatments performed worldwide, it has proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction. Read more about the most recent FDA Approval for CoolSculpting which approves it for double chin (submental) reduction.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any treatment or procedure there are some potential side effects. However, these side effects are minimal enough for you to go back to your normal activities soon after treatment. Following the procedure, you may experience some discomfort with associated redness, swelling, bruising and numbness in the regions treated. These are common which are all normal side effects. Some of our patients prefer wearing compression clothing in the days following the treatment and use ibuprofen to ease swelling and pain.
When Can I See Results?
Changes can occur as early as three weeks after your treatment and continue up to two months. Three days following the treatment the fat cells will no longer be functioning, but they will still maintain their volume. Within three weeks your body’s own cells, called macrophages, will begin to eliminate those fat cells and remove them permanently. You will see up to a 25% fat reduction after the first treatment. The most dramatic results will be seen after two cycles per area. Your CoolSculpting specialist will assist you in determining if a second treatment is required to get the body you desire!
