Most people considering CoolSculpting have seen impressive before and after photos, read countless positive reviews, and heard from celebrities that love the fat-freezing procedure.
However, many patients routinely ask: What does CoolSculpting feel like?
If you are considering non-surgical fat removal with CoolSculpting, continue reading as we describe the procedure and what you can expect from treatment.
Who’s a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment designed to freeze and destroy pinchable fat under the skin. Accordingly, the ideal candidate for this procedure is a healthy adult that is at or near their ideal weight, but struggles with diet and exercise resistant bulges.
While CoolSculpting can noticeably slim and contour the treated area, it is not a weight loss treatment. Nor is it recommended for individuals that have significant skin laxity or visceral fat.
What Does CoolSculpting Feel Like?
When patients hear that CoolSculpting kills unwanted fat with a patented cooling technology, they understandably want to know: What does CoolSculpting feel like? The answer is quite straightforward.
At the beginning of the process, patients may note slight tugging as fatty tissue is vaccumed into the applicator.
When the two panels, within the handpiece, apply freezing temperatures (as low as four degrees Celsius), it’s normal to experience a cooling effect and some tingling.
However, this sensation only lasts several minutes. For the remainder of the procedure, patients are able to relax, take a nap, watch TV, or work on a laptop.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that has undergone rigorous testing to demonstrate its safety and efficacy. In fact, it has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, exhibiting its level of trust within the medical and scientific communities.
Additionally, since being introduced in 2010, over six million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed worldwide.
Best of all, CoolSculpting can safely and non-surgically achieve up to a 25 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat. And there’s absolutely zero downtime!
