With the variety of applicators available today, CoolSculpting can be used to reduce pockets of fat on most areas of the body, including:
Many patients are satisfied after a single CoolSculpting treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific needs. For more significant fat reduction, you may want to consider liposuction with our Albany plastic surgeons.
To initiate the treatment, we will position the CoolSculpting applicatore on the targeted area of fat. The device will then draw the bulge up between 2 cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you're done.
CoolSculpting is completely nonsurgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness, or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often, patients return to work as soon as the session is over.
You may start to see changes from CoolSculpting as soon as 3 weeks after your treatment, while outcomes vary between individuals. Results appear gradually as the body flushes away treated fat cells and take approximately 3 months to completely attain.
