Who is the right candidate for CoolSculpting?
The best candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure is somebody who has stubborn bulges in different areas which cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise. You must keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not meant for the obese or overweight as a weight loss solution. However, it is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. You must undergo a consultation to check if you are the right candidate for the procedure. You are not suitable for CoolSculpting if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
How much does it cost?
The amount you pay for your CoolSculpting procedure depends on the body area which is to be treated and the number of treatment sessions you will require. Your doctor, like Dr. Basile, will develop a customized plan which can be tailored to suit your goals, body, and budget.
How long will each session take?
Depending on your individual needs, the doctor will decide how long each session takes. The time required for each session depends on the number of areas to be treated during the session.
How does the procedure work?
When a body area is treated, the fat cells will be frozen which will be processed by your body and eliminated naturally. The appeal of the procedure is that these dead cells are completely eliminated.
How does getting CoolSculpting feel?
When the procedure starts, most patients report a feeling of pressure and extreme cold. This feeling soon dissipates and you can rest or read or even work on your laptop during the procedure. You could even catch a snooze while your CoolSculpting treatment goes on.
Is the procedure safe?
FDA has approved CoolSculpting for your abdomen, thighs and love handles. About one million patients have been treated across the globe and it has proven to be not only effective but safe too.
What are the side effects of CoolSculpting?
During the procedure, you may feel numbness, discomfort, tugging, pinching and a deep pulling sensation. Once the procedure is over, there are some common symptoms that you may suffer from like stinging, pain, tingling, bruising, firmness, swelling, redness or temporary numbness. However, these are just temporary side effects of the CoolSculpting treatment and will resolve on their own.
