Coolsculpting® in Boston
How does Coolsculpting® Work?
Coolsculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, Coolsculpting® involves no needless surgery or downtime. Patients often read, work on their laptops or simply relax during their procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate?
Coolsculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have a mild or moderate amount of extra fat in targeted areas. Unlike invasive weight-loss surgical methods, it is not a solution for people who are obese. A good candidate for Coolsculpting® is someone within 30 pounds of their ideal weight who has noticeable bulges in some body areas, such as abdomen, flanks or inner thighs.
What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, each body type is different and the results highly depend on the density of unwanted fat. During your complimentary consultation our provider will discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment, we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two 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.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, 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. Oftentimes, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.*
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.*
*Individual results may vary
