If you've been dealing with unwanted pockets of fat for a while, scheduling your first Coolsculpting appointment is sure to be exciting. You can't wait to get in there and finally do something to improve your appearance! Still, you're bound to have a few questions as your appointment approaches. Hopefully, you'll discover the answers in this article.
How is the Coolsculpting treatment delivered?
The process is really simple from the perspective of the patient. Your doctor will hold an applicator tool against the part of your body to be treated. This tool looks a bit like an upside-down cup. It will attach to your skin via suction. There are sensors within the cup device to monitor the temperature of your skin. When your doctor turns the device on, it will deliver coolness to the treatment area, guided by the feedback from the sensors.
How long will the treatment take?
This depends on what body part you are having treated. For example, it will take a lot longer to treat your thighs than your chin. That being said, most treatments take less than an hour. Your first visit may take a little longer since your doctor will probably take their time explaining the process, answering your questions, and having you sign waivers.
Will you have any pain after Coolsculpting?
Directly after the treatment, the area that was treated will feel very cold and a bit stiff. However, your doctor will massage the area, which will alleviate this sensation. That night, you might feel a little soreness and cramping in this area, but this should not be severe enough to interfere with your lifestyle in any way. You can go right back to work — even minutes after Coolsculpting.
How profound are the results?
You won't notice results right after the procedure. However, you should not take this to mean that you will not get results! In the days after Coolsculpting, your body will start ejecting the fat. It may take as many as 6 months to experience the full extent of your results. Many patients do need two or three treatments in order to get their desired results. These appointments will be spaced a few months apart.
You should now have a better understanding of Coolsculpting, its nuances, and what you can expect. If you have any lingering concerns, talk to your doctor. If you give them a call prior to your appointment, they can chat with you and make sure you're comfortable before it's time to have this procedure performed.
Flawless skin takes a lot of concentrated effort. You cannot simply wash your face and expect it to look like perfect peach-colored porcelain. If you invest the right amount of time and money into your skin, it will reward you for your efforts. In the meantime, you should seek out professional skincare support at spas and salons. Here, they have mud masks and other products that can draw out impurities and put a fresh balance into your skin. Routine treatments for your specific skin type sets up your expectations for what it takes to give you flawless skin. Following this routine religiously will help produce the results you are looking for.
