Having stubborn unwanted fat is something that most of us have. And although diet and exercise are both extremely helpful at helping patients get rid of this excess fat, sometimes that won’t even do the trick. If you are having a hard time contouring your body a little more, but you don’t want to undergo surgery, then you may want to consider a non-invasive treatment like CoolSculpting. To help you understand CoolSculpting and whether or not it’s right for you, this article will answer some frequently asked questions about this procedure.
FAQ: What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a unique, non-invasive procedure that works by freezing the targeted fat cells and destroying them. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body naturally excretes them through your urine.
FAQ: Is CoolSculpting Permanent?
Yes. The great thing about CoolSculpting is that since the fat cells are actually destroyed, the results are permanent. Typically, one session of CoolSculpting will remove about one-quarter of the fat in areas that don’t respond well to exercise or diet changes.
FAQ: Is Massage After CoolSculpting Important?
Massaging the areas that were targeted during CoolSculpting is extremely important. Dr. Ward at Form Medical Spa will walk you through how to massage your body and how much pressure you should apply.
FAQ: Is It Painful?
On average, patients don’t experience any pain during their CoolSculpting treatment but feel a little bit of discomfort as the skin and fat are being pulled and tugged on. In rare instances, some patients do however experience a slight bit of pain during the actual procedure itself. If you start to experience any pain during your CoolSculpting procedure, let Dr. Ward know right away.
