While searching for CoolSculpting near me, you may begin to ponder which things to ask at your initial consultation. We can help you get the most out of your initial appointment, by answering some of the most commonly asked questions we have at these consultations.
How does CoolSculpting near me work?
The idea behind this technique involves freezing fat cells under the skin. Being exposed to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, this process kills the fat cells, allowing your body to dispose of them naturally,
In total, this process can take up to 3 months to be completed, depending on your metabolism and general health, leaving you with a more sculpted physique. As it employs your body’s own systems to complete the treatment, you should have no stretch marks or sagging skin.
Are there any side-effects?
When you have completed the sculpting, the treatment area may appear red, slightly swollen and may feel tender to touch.
Over the next few days, minor bruising may occur, along with a tingling sensation, soreness, and even numbness. To alleviate these symptoms, apply a cold compress over the treatment area and, if deemed acceptable by a medical practitioner, apply a compression bandage to reduce the swelling.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on how many fat cells require freezing, you may need more than one session.
Don’t worry; this procedure usually only takes 35 minutes from start to finish, so you can schedule it around your busy routine, without requiring days off from work or cancelling plans with your family.
Is the machine used certified?
The machine that we use at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic for this technique is certified and produced by a company called Zetiq.
This machine passed FDA regulations in 2010, so this machine is safe, effective and has passed through many regulations and certifications.
What can I expect after the procedure is complete?
Once you have completed the sculpting process, the treated area may feel bruised, appear swollen and will probably feel very delicate to the touch; this is all to be expected and should resolve in a few days.
If you are concerned about the level of discomfort you are experiencing, seek medical assistance immediately.
