If you struggle with pockets of unwanted fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting. These non-invasive treatments, offered by Perfect Skin Center in Scottsdale, AZ, can easily whip problem areas into shape without the need for downtime. Could this revolutionary body contouring treatment be the right option for you?
Who Can Benefit From CoolSculpting?
You’re Struggling With Stubborn Problem Spots
Even the healthiest patients sometimes struggle with pockets of fat that won’t go away, no matter how rigorously they exercise and how carefully they eat. If you have small areas of fat that seem lodged in place, regardless of your lifestyle, CoolSculpting can help you get rid of them.
You’re Not Far Over Your Goal Weight
The patients who get the best results with this treatment system are already in fairly good shape and are no more than 20 pounds over their goal weight. These are patients who are already committed to getting in shape and staying in shape, but who need a little help with the final leg of that journey.
You’ve Got Enough Fat
Even though the best patients are already fairly close to their ideal weight, they do need to have enough fat for this treatment to work. If you’re able to pinch an inch of fat in the area you want to be treated, you probably have enough fat for this system to work.
Although the non-invasive nature of this treatment system makes it suitable for most adults, it still helps if you’re healthy. Be sure to let us know about any chronic underlying medical conditions you’re coping with.
You’re Not Pregnant
This treatment is not generally recommended for patients who are currently pregnant. And if you’re thinking about becoming pregnant in the future, it might be a good idea to postpone treatment until after you are done having children, because pregnancy can change your body.
You’re Not Interested in Invasive Treatments
There are more invasive ways of eradicating unwanted fat. Liposuction is one of them. But not every individual can commit to an involved treatment like liposuction, which involves anesthesia and a recovery period. And some patients aren’t candidates for liposuction.
You’re Not Looking To Lose Weight
While this treatment system gets rid of unwanted fat, it doesn’t necessarily result in weight loss that’s more than a few pounds. If your primary goal is to lose weight, you might be better served by a traditional weight loss plan.
You Understand the Treatment
The best patients understand how this treatment system works and are realistic about what it can accomplish. We can answer any questions you may have about this treatment, and the degree of improvement it offers, during your initial consultation.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
This amazing treatment uses an external applicator to freeze fat cells, permanently destroying them without damaging surrounding skin or tissue. After your treatment, your body will naturally dispose of the destroyed fat cells and the shape of your body will gradually improve over the next eight to 12 weeks. This treatment can reduce the amount of unwanted fat by up to 25 percent.
As the applicator moves over your problem area, you might experience a gentle tugging sensation and cool temperature, but you’ll feel no pain. Our practice uses the latest CoolAdvantage applicator, which speeds treatment times and is even more comfortable for patients. Once we’ve finished, we’ll use a Zimmer Z Wave device, which uses sound waves to break down any fat left behind, to enhance your results.
Will One Treatment Be Enough?
It depends on the area you’re having treated and how much of an improvement you’re hoping to achieve. For some patients, one treatment is enough, but you’ll have the option of scheduling another treatment two months later if you’re looking for more improvement.
Does This Treatment Offer Permanent Results?
Yes. Once you’ve completed the recommended number of treatments, the targeted fat will be gone once and for all. But this treatment won’t prevent you from gaining weight elsewhere on the body in the future, so you’ll need to stick to a healthy lifestyle going forward.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?
This treatment can be successfully performed on the hips, thighs, abdomen, upper arms, buttocks, and just about anywhere else on the body. It can even be used in small, tightly contoured areas of the body, such as beneath the chin. This treatment can also be used to treat multiple areas, depending on the patient’s goals.
Will This Treatment Leave Any Scars?
No. This treatment won’t involve any incisions in the body. It also won’t involve needles or lasers. This means you won’t have any risk of scarring.
What Benefits Does This Treatment Offer?
If Offers Consistent, Natural Results
Patients who undergo this treatment see their results develop naturally over time, as the body gradually disposes of those destroyed fat cells. Compared with liposuction, which can leave the targeted area lumpy in appearance, CoolSuclpting results are consistent. The area that has been treated will be smooth, sculpted, and even, and it won’t look any different from the rest of your body.
This treatment makes it easy to finally get the figure you’ve been working so hard for. These treatments are short enough to be worked into your lunch hour, and you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule afterward. If you’re looking for a no-hassle, time-efficient treatment, CoolSculpting is for you.
It Can Be Customized
No two CoolSculpting patients are alike. Some are eager to slim down the inner or outer thighs. Others simply want a modest tightening in the abdominal region. Whatever your concern is, we can design a treatment plan just for you.
It Can Noticeably Improve Your Figure
By toning down small areas of unwanted fat, CoolSculpting can noticeably improve your overall silhouette. And that’s not all. This treatment gives patients more control over their silhouette than a traditional weight loss plan will. CoolSculpting can help you tame your problem spots while keeping the curves you like. Once you’ve had this treatment, you’ll feel great about the way your body looks.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Type of Fat Does This Treatment Work On?
This treatment attacks adipose fat cells, which enlarge and shrink over time based on your diet and exercise habits and the amount of fat being stored in your body. Each of us is born with a set number of adipose fat cells, and this treatment permanently removes some of those cells.
Does This Work for Both Men and Women?
Male and female patients tend to carry fat in different parts of the body. Because this treatment works all over the body, it offers great results to patients of both genders.
Is This a Safe Treatment?
This treatment system is a safe option that can be performed without damaging the skin. This technology won FDA approval in 2010.
Does Health Insurance Cover This Treatment?
Health insurance plans don’t usually cover this treatment because of its cosmetic nature. Our practice offers financing through Healthcare Finance Direct.
Should I Do Anything Special To Prepare for Treatment?
There’s not much you need to do to prepare for these treatments. Because the treatment device will be placed directly against your skin, you might want to take extra care of your skin in the weeks leading up to your appointment, avoiding excessive sun exposure or anything else that might irritate it. We can also make a recommendation about any alterations in the medications and supplements you regularly take.
On the day of your treatment, be sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Are You Sure This Is a Comfortable Treatment?
These treatments are comfortable and are nothing to worry about. Many patients read, work, or nap as this treatment system is working.
How Much Fat Does This Treatment Remove?
This treatment doesn’t remove any fat from the body. Instead, it destroys fat cells, which the body then naturally disposes of. That process slims down fat deposits and can reduce fat in the treatment area by up to 25 percent.
