As the number #1 CoolSculpting® provider in Oklahoma and Arkansas, we’ve successfully administered thousands of CoolSculpting treatments and fielded every question imaginable about this popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment. Here’s a look at the top questions we’ve heard, along with our expert answers.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
Some patients feel discomfort during treatment, especially in the beginning of the cooling cycle as skin is cooling down. This discomfort typically subsides as your skin becomes numb. In rare instances, patients may experience pain after treatment. We will be with you every step of the way to ensure your comfort before, during, and after treatment, including follow-up visits and care recommendations for any side effects.
They say there’s little to no downtime, but what about the side effects?
It’s true! There’s little to no downtime, but CoolSculpting can temporarily cause your skin to turn red at the treatment sites. This redness is normal and will gradually fade in the hours and days after your treatment. Some patients may also experience swelling, which will resolve on its own. You will be able to go about your daily activities immediately following treatment.
I had one treatment and don’t see any results! What went wrong?
Having realistic expectations is the key to successful CoolSculpting treatments. While many patients do see results after receiving only one treatment, every patient responds differently, and some people need more treatments before they will notice benefits. Keep in mind that it can take multiple treatments over a period of months to obtain your optimal results. We will work with you to devise the ideal treatment plan for your needs.
How do I know if CoolSculpting will work for me?
Your first step is clearly identifying your goals. If you are dreaming of losing weight and reducing your overall size, CoolSculpting may not be the ideal choice for you. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool or a magic fix for an unhealthy lifestyle. This non-invasive fat reduction treatment is specifically designed to reduce pinchable pockets of fat on specific areas of your body, such as love handles, muffin tops, saddle bags or a double chin. We can help you determine if CoolSculpting is a good fit for you during your personal consultation.
