CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option to reduce the appearance of targeted areas of fat that are unresponsive to traditional diet and exercise. Explore the possibilities and benefits of this treatment option during a consultation with our team at Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks, CA!
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive body contouring treatment. This unique FDA-approved treatment utilizes cool temperatures to directly target and destroy fat cells.
Common treatment areas for CoolSculpting include:
- Back fat
- Banana roll
- Bra fat
- Love handles
Once the fat cells in these targeted areas are destroyed, they are naturally processed and removed by your body. This body contouring treatment is not intended to be a weight loss treatment, but it can be effective in toning and slimming targeted areas of stubborn fat. Learn more if it is right for you during a consultation with our team in Thousand Oaks!
What Could I Expect from a Treatment Session?
CoolSculpting is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our California office. During this non-surgical procedure, you can relax as a member of our team directly applies cool temperatures to your specific treatment area.
While you may experience a mild cool sensation and some pressure, treatment sessions are often short. There is no set downtime associated with this minimally invasive procedure. To achieve and maintain the best results, a series of treatments may be required.
Shortly after treatment, you should begin to gradually see your results. While they will vary for each person and treatment area, they should be long-lasting and natural-looking. Continuing to lead a healthy lifestyle is essential for maintaining your results.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment designed to benefit most people. It is commonly recommended to people who are close to their ideal body as it is intended as a toning procedure. A consultation with our team in Thousand Oaks can help determine if this non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option is the best choice for you and your goals.
It is critical to understand that CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight loss procedure. While this treatment is effective for reducing the appearance of specific frustrating areas of fat, it is not intended for major fat reduction. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for this procedure.
