Since CoolSculpting treatments are great for non invasive fat removal, lots of patients are curious about how it works. The Touch team loves patient education and thought we would take this opportunity to answer some common CoolSculpting Questions.
First thing first: here’s how CoolSculpting works in North Myrtle Beach
How CoolSculpting Works
Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight. CoolSculpting targets these cells through a safe fat-freezing process called “cryolipolysis.” What does that mean?
By applying a controlled temperature, we can target and destroy fat cells in selected places on your body. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. For months following your procedure, other cells consume these dead fat cells and then naturally expel them from your body through normal biological functions. Poof. Gone. Almost like magic 😉
The best part? Your body has a set number of fat cells, it will NOT create new fat cells to replace the dead ones. You heard us right. No new fat cells for you!
HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean the remaining fat cells can’t get larger if you gain weight. So the treatment can’t stop you from gaining weight. That would be actual magic.
How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need?
We will discuss the number of treatments during your consultation. For most patients, a few treatment sessions are all they need. For other patients, more sessions may be necessary. It all depends on the amount of fat they want addressed.
It will depend on your aesthetic goals and if there are thicker layers of fat in target sections. Generally, you can expect between 4-6 treatments to receive ideal results.
Are there side effects from CoolSculpting?
Side effects of CoolSculpting usually include bruising, swelling, stinging, redness, and discomfort of the treated site. These side effects are temporary and should subside in the days following your procedure.
Does CoolSculpting work on belly fat?
Absolutely! In fact, belly fat is one of the single most requested treatment sites among Touch patients. Since traditional dieting and exercise don’t reeeally allow you to target specific areas for targeted fat loss, an often stubborn area like the abdomen is a fantastic spot to receive CoolSculpting.
Other great treatment areas:
- Under the jawline
- Under the chin
- Upper arms
- Love handles
