BEST HEALTH MAGAZINE EDITOR, Beth Thompson reviews CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting?

“Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.

The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.”

The CoolSculpting procedure delivers controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells then shrink, crystalize (freeze), then die. Your body will naturally process the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

Benefits of CoolSculpting:

The fat is gone for good! Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.

  • NO SURGERY
  • NO ANESTHESIA
  • NO NEEDLES
  • NON-INVASIVE TECHNIQUE
  • NO DOWNTIME
  • NO DAMAGE TO NERVES OR OTHER TISSUE

CoolSculpting systems have built-in safety measures. Sensors detect if the skin is getting too cold and the system will shut down automatically.

Am I a good candidate?

An assessment is necessary for every client seeking fat reduction with CoolSculpting. You should be generally within 30 lbs. or 13.6 kg. of your ideal weight but have areas of excess fat.  Soft, squishy fat is the best. Conditions that may inhibit you from having the treatment are:

Will I lose weight?

You may or may not but weight loss is not the goal, fat loss is. Visceral fat, the stiffer belly fat that is easier to lose with diet and exercise, is heavier than the softer subcutaneous fat that the CoolSculpt is targeting. It is possible to see a significant loss of fat without having the numbers on the scale hardly change at all.

Before the treatment

You will be asked to stand for before photos in a private room with disposable undergarments. These photos are for your records only. Your technician will then measure and mark the treatment areas. It is important to eat a meal and use the bathroom before your treatment as once the cycle has been started you need to stay still for it’s duration.

What happens during the treatment?

You will be seated comfortably on a  treatment bed in a position that will allow for the placement of the hand-piece. A cold, gel-covered towel is placed on the treatment area and the hand-piece with powerful suction will be placed in the marked area. You will immediately feel a  strong pinching as the fat becomes pulled into the hand-piece with the suction.

The cooling is then activated and the area becomes very cold and within about 10 minutes, very numb.

You may also experience tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping until the area becomes numb.

Some people feel some discomfort before the numbing takes effect so please feel free to express your comfort level to your technician. If adjustments need to be made they can be done in the first 10 minutes without interrupting the full cycle of the treatment.

Your treatment will take between 35 minutes and one hour for each area. During this time you will be on your own in your room with a call button. You may watch TV, read and relax. Once the area is numb, your treatment becomes very comfortable. At Anti-Aging, we offer the advantage of 2 machines which enables areas such as abdomen and one flank or thigh to be treated at the same time.

After the treatment:

Once the hand-piece is removed, your treatment area will retain that shape for a few minutes. It can be quite alarming when you first see it. There is no reason for concern, your technician will vigorously massage it down for 2 minutes. This massage can be quite uncomfortable but is necessary and will yield you 60% better results.

You may also see redness and firmness; transient blanching and/or mild bruising around the edges of the treatment area; tingling and stinging. Typically, these side effects are temporary and resolve completely. Many patients do experience redness in the treated areas for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed. In rare cases, this redness may persist up to 2 weeks, but it will completely resolve itself.

Post treatment instructions:

Wait 2 days before returning to the gym but most activities can be resumed the day after treatment. You will know what you feel comfortable doing.

At 1 to 2 weeks after treatment, there may be redness, bruising, and swelling; tenderness, cramping, and aching; itching, skin sensitivity, tingling, and numbness. In some cases, numbness may persist for several weeks after a treatment. Call our clinic if these side effects persist past 2 weeks or worsen over time.

How many treatments will I need?

Some patients are happy with their results after one treatment but most opt for a second one, 2 or more months after the first.

What areas can I treat with CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared to target stubborn fat bulges in specific areas: abdomen, flank/side (“muffin top” or “love handle”), inner thigh, outer thigh and double chin.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and you will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

Will my skin be looser after the procedure?

Although some people do experience some skin tightening after their full results are seen, CoolSculpting is not a skin tightening device. You can expect that once the fat is removed that it is possible your skin will appear more lax than before. Other treatments such as Thermage can help with tightening that skin.
