This week our new medical spa, MadEmel Medical Aesthetics, is answering questions about CoolSculpting® Non-Surgical Fat Reduction. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to help remove stubborn, excess fat from areas all over the body including the submental (double chin), thighs, abdomen, back, upper arms, and more. It is one of the most tried and true non-surgical fat reduction treatments available. To help further explain why CoolSculpting® is so in-demand, we have answered a few commonly asked questions about the treatment that we have received.
Question #1: What happens to fat cells after a CoolSculpting® treatment?
During treatment, CoolSculpting® uses a process known as cryolipolysis to safely freeze fat cells beneath the surface of the skin. Once the controlled cooling is applied, the damaged fat cells are naturally expelled from the body and will not return.
Question #2: Can CoolSculpting® be used to lose a large amount of weight?
CoolSculpting® is intended to help treat small pockets of fat from specific areas on the body. It is not a weight loss treatment and patients should not expect this kind of result. Instead of thinking of CoolSculpting® as a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise, think of it as a complement to your healthy lifestyle choices.
Question #3: How many CoolSculpting® treatments will I need?
This depends on a number of factors, including what area (or areas) you want to have treated and how much fat is in these specific areas. Each CoolSculpting® treatment can reduce the fat in a treated area by 20% – 25%. Many patients require a series of multiple treatments to achieve their desired aesthetic goal, but this can vary from person to person.
Question #4: Is CoolSculpting® safe?
CoolSculpting® is very safe. The treatment has been cleared by the FDA to effectively treat nine different areas of the body. We will confirm during your pre-treatment consultation that you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting® before any treatment is performed.
CoolSculpting® is a safe, effective, and exciting cosmetic treatment that can be very beneficial to people of all ages.
