CoolSculpting Candidate

Our seasoned team of certified CoolSculpting specialists has the qualifications, experience, and expertise to tailor treatment to your unique needs and goals.

And while CoolSculpting is a safe, effective, and non-surgical fat removal option for a wide-range of people, not everyone is an ideal CoolSculpting candidate in Northern Virginia.

If you’re considering fat freezing and wondering, “Am I a good CoolSculpting candidate?” read on to learn more.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that delivers a patented cooling technology to target and destroy fat pockets beneath the skin.

During the treatment, controlled cooling selectively freezes fat cells and causes them to undergo apoptosis (cell death).

The destroyed fat cell remnants are gradually cleared from the body through a natural detoxification process.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

Women and men who are interested in slimming their midsection, eliminating a double chin, or toning their thighs often debate the benefits of CoolSculpting vs. liposuction.

In order to determine which of these treatments is right for you, it’s important to understand the key differences between them.

Here’s how they compare:

Indications

CoolSculpting is ideal for pinchable areas of fat on the abdomen, flanks, thigh, hips, banana roll, back, upper arms, chin, and jawline. It works especially well for stubborn bulges that persist despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.

If you are looking to eliminate large volumes of thick fat, then liposuction may offer a better alternative.

How Quickly You’ll See Results

CoolSculpting typically produces visible slimming in 4-6 weeks, with final results evident by 8-12 weeks. You can undergo a second treatment within 6 weeks of the first.

While liposuction usually requires only one treatment, it can take up to 6 months for swelling to resolve and reveal final results.

Expectations

If you are hoping to ditch excess fat and improve your body contours in 1 or 2 problem spots, you’re likely a good candidate for CoolSculpting.

However, if you are seeking dramatic fat reduction in a number of areas, you may want to consider a surgical procedure like liposuction.

Downtime

CoolSculpting is a zero-downtime procedure and allows patients to resume all normal activities, without pain or any limitations.

On the other hand, liposuction typically involves bruising, swelling, and pain and requires time away from work and exercise to recover.
