CoolSculpting is one of the most exciting treatment options for men and women who are close to their goal weight, but still have stubborn fat deposits that won’t go away no matter how hard they diet or exercise. A non-invasive, outpatient procedure that requires no anesthesia, no knives and no downtime, this new technology is becoming a favorite amongst Bay Area men and women who want to look and feel their best.
If you have extra fatty deposits in your abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, chin or upper arms, CoolSculpting just may be the solution that gives you the body you desire. Working by freezing and killing your fat cells – which are then permanently eliminated through your body’s natural elimination process – CoolSculpting helps patients get the bodies they’ve always wanted – all without ever entering an operating room.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
If CoolSculpting doesn’t include any knives or needles, how exactly does it work? Well, Dr. Sani of Health and Beauty Physicians starts by applying a gel pad, then the CoolSculpting applicator, which delivers controlled cooling to your treatment area. The session takes about an hour. Most patients say they have a little bit of discomfort for the first few seconds as they feel the coolness of the applicator, but as the cool sensation numbs the treatment area, they report that the entire hour-long process is painless. In fact, many of Dr. Sani’s patients read a book, surf the Internet on their phone or even take a nap during their treatment.
How Long Does it Take to See the Benefits of Cool Sculpting?
One of the most frequently asked questions that Dr. Sani receives about CoolSculpting is how long it will take for patients to the see the benefits of the procedure. Typically, you’ll see your final results as soon as 3 weeks or up to 3 months, after your body has eliminated the killed fat cells. For some patients, multiple treatments of CoolSculpting may be necessary to receive optimal results. If you choose to have the procedure at Health and Beauty Physicians, Dr. Sani will create a personalized treatment plan for you, and review the recommended number of treatment times with you before you commit to anything.
We know – the prospect of losing those stubborn areas of fat without a cosmetic procedure that doesn’t include going under the knife seems too good to be true. But it is true, and there are several additional benefits of the procedure. The first is safety. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure, offered only by a select number of advanced cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Sani.
Second, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment. Because it doesn’t require surgery, there is no downtime from the procedure! You can come in for your treatment on your lunch break, and return to work that afternoon. You can even hit the gym the same day of your CoolSculpting procedure.
Third, it’s a very effective procedure that kills fat cells for good. When considering CoolSculpting, though, it’s important for patients to keep in mind that they should be at a stable weight that is close to their ideal weight. This is because while CoolSculpting permanently kills fat the targeted cells, your remaining fat cells may always change shape and size. So if you undergo a CoolSculpting procedure, but then gain a significant amount of weight, you could regain those fatty deposits, too.
Finally, one of the biggest benefits that patients report about CoolSculpting is that there are no scars. Because you won’t be undergoing surgery, you’ll have no incisions at all. This means that no one will know you’ve had work done, and you won’t have an embarrassing scar to try to hide.
