Read on to learn the answers to five FAQs about CoolSculpting in Charlotte:

  1. How Long Will It Take to See the Results?

CoolSculpting reviews show that patients report a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fat between two and four months after their first treatment. After you see the initial results, your body will continue expelling fat cells for several weeks.

  1. Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?

CoolSculpting is best for healthy people who want to remove small pockets of fat that seem immune to diet and exercise. It is particularly effective for targeting fat on the abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs or under the chin.

  1. What Happens during the Procedure?

Your CoolSculpting therapist will attach an applicator to the target area. The applicator will reduce the temperature of the fatty tissue, which causes the fat cells to die in a process called “apoptosis.” This does not affect skin or muscle tissue.

  1. How Much Will It Cost?

There are several factors that will affect the cost of your CoolSculpting treatment – namely, the size of the area you want to treat, the number of areas, and the amount of fat you want to remove. Some patients need multiple CoolSculpting sessions to achieve their desired results.

  1. Is CoolSculpting Safe?

A recent study in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine examined data from years of CoolSculpting sessions and found no significant adverse side effects. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved CoolSculpting for its safety and effectiveness.

Unlike traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting does not require incisions, which means there is little to no risk of infection. Also, patients do not have to worry about an unsightly suture scar. The most common side effects are temporary redness and swelling in the treatment area, which should dissipate within a few hours after the treatment.
