Is that pesky double chin or those pervasive love handles bringing you down? Does it feel like you’re pushing yourself to the max by doing crazy workouts but still not seeing the specific results you’re looking for? If you’re on the verge of giving up your dream body, hold on just a little bit more because CoolSculpting may be the answer to your dilemma!

CoolSculpting is a fantastic method for getting rid of fat cells that don’t go away no matter what you’re trying to do. So, if you’re thinking of getting CoolSculpting treatments, it would be beneficial for you to read on as we highlight five things to know before you book a session!

CoolSculpting Is Non-Invasive And Non-Problematic

In a nutshell, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical method of removing treated fat cells from the body. A non-invasive treatment is significantly safer than other methods that might require surgery of any form. Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, it reduces post-treatment recovery time, lessens complications, and makes it more accessible for everyone.

This bit alone also makes it more viable for the majority than another popular fat reduction method in liposuction. Compared to liposuction, CoolSculpting can hit smaller and specific areas on the body, such as the neck, chin, and inner thighs, without going under the knife. These props make CoolSculpting safer and quicker while achieving similar results.

CoolSculpting Is Not a Weight-Loss Method

Fat-loss isn’t necessarily the same as weight loss. First, you must understand that CoolSculpting is a method of reducing fat around specific areas. Losing fat cells is definitely not the same as losing weight. While there may be some weight that is lost in the process, it is not a substitute for any weight maintenance or loss methods you’re already undergoing. 

Undergoing CoolSculpting to lose weight is not the weight-loss answer you’re looking for. However, it is an exceedingly helpful tool that aids your weight-loss journey.

CoolSculpting works best for people within approximately 20 pounds of their ideal BMI. CoolSculpting also works remarkably well for individuals seeking to rid themselves of stubborn fat cells. Suppose you’re looking into this fat-loss method to free yourself from visible fat bulges that just refuse to go away. In that case, we have an article you can check out on specific areas of your body (spoiler alert: it works exceedingly well on your neck, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, and love handles) that CoolSculpting can work its magic on.

CoolSculpting Is Fast-Acting and Effective against Stubborn Fat Tissue

If you’re wondering or worrying about the results of CoolSculpting, don’t fret. We are happy to let you know that more than 80% of people who undergo CoolSculpting report high satisfaction with how quickly and effectively the procedure works. 

CoolSculpting essentially freezes the fat cells in the targeted areas of the body, and the body naturally removes dead fat cells. Because the fat is frozen and melted away, it does not return – providing a more effective solution to fixing up problem areas. This quick method also corresponds to a relatively quick recovery time. People undergoing CoolSculpting are not required to schedule any recovery time after sessions and can simply go about their lives like normal.

CoolSculpting Is Cold

Traditionally, CoolSculpting is called cryolipolysis. As its name suggests, the method uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells. Therefore, people sensitive to cold temperatures or with nerve problems (as freezing temperatures can tend to numb nerves) near target sites may want to consider other fat reduction options.

Due to exposure to freezing temperatures, it’s normal to feel side effects like localized pain, swelling, redness, bruising, and increased sensitivity. Before going through this type of procedure, be sure that you are comfortable with the above-mentioned side effects, although we can assure you that they do not last long, so it should not be too much of an issue

The CoolSculpting Treatment Prices Vary

Beauty has its price – and speaking of prices, the truth is that CoolSculpting treatment prices can vary greatly. On average, the average cost for CoolSculpting is $1,437. However, the price can change depending on the size of the area and the specific area itself. 

Generally, the cost of the procedure depends on the area size, desired results, and location of the targeted area. Smaller areas of the body such as the neck and chin can set you back as low as $250 to $500, while bigger areas such as the lower abdomen can cost upwards of $1500. So, while it is not necessarily costly, expenses can still pile up depending on the area and the number of areas you want to be done.

So there you have it, a few things to take note of when considering CoolSculpting as your method of choice when it comes to removing stubborn fat cells! If you’re interested in knowing more, we can redirect you to our CoolSculpting page, where you can sign up for a consultation form!
