What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary noninvasive body shaping tool that uses fat-freezing technology to destroy unwanted fat cells and improve your figure. The experts at Orange Coast OBGYN use CoolSculpting on a number of body parts, including:
- Abdomen and flank
- Bra and back fat
The innovative technology is also safe enough to destroy the fat under your chin, known as submental fat.
Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Your specialist at Orange Coast OBGYN determines if you’re a good candidate for the procedure after a physical examination, review of your medical history, and discussion of your aesthetic goals. CoolSculpting can help you lose unwanted fat, but it’s not a weight loss tool like weight-loss surgery.
You are considered a good candidate if you’re looking for a nonsurgical body shaping alternative to liposuction and you have noticeable pockets of fat on various parts of your body.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
CoolSculpting at Orange Coast OBGYN is a relaxing experience. You may feel an intense cold sensation at the start of your treatment, but this sensation goes away within 10 minutes as the area numbs. Depending on the type of applicator used, you may also feel a pulling sensation during the suction portion of the procedure.
Once your session is done, your specialist massages the treatment area to help restore circulation. There’s no downtime following CoolSculpting, so you can go back to work or even the gym.
When will I see results from CoolSculpting?
You may start to see an improvement in your shape within three weeks after treatment, with continued improvement over the next two months as your body processes and removes the destroyed fat cells. With Coolsculpting, your results are long term because once the fat cells are gone, they don’t return.
Do I need to take supplements after CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting isn’t a diet or exercise program, so there’s no need to take any special supplements following your treatment. However, your newly shaped body may give you the motivation you need to take better care of yourself and push you to make better food choices and make exercise a part of your regular routine.
