With CoolSculpting® by Allergan, patients can eliminate stubborn body fat to enhance the contours of the body and achieve their cosmetic goals. Shapeology offers CoolSculpting® to men and women living in Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas of Arizona.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
The CoolSculpting® treatment by Allergan uses cooling energy to target fat cells from the skin’s surface. The CoolSculpting® applicator is placed onto the body where fat reduction is desired, and then emits cooling energy to the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting® freezes and destroys fat cells during this process. During the weeks following treatment, the body will eliminate the destroyed fat cells, enhancing the contours of the body as fat in the treated areas is reduced.
What is the CoolSculpting® Treatment Like?
The CoolSculpting® treatment by Allergan is a comfortable procedure that can last between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on the treatment area and the patient’s treatment goals. Once the CoolSculpting® applicator is placed on the body, you can expect an initial cooling or pinching sensation. However, the treatment area typically goes numb within a few minutes, and you are able to relax for the duration of your treatment. Most patients are able to read, use their phones, or even take a nap during the treatment.
Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting®?
After the CoolSculpting® treatment, you may notice tingling, redness, or sensitivity in the treatment area. These effects are often minor and typically fade within a day or two. Despite these effects, patients are able to resume all normal activities immediately following their CoolSculpting® treatment. You will be able to return to work, exercise, and all other activities without a problem.
When Will I Notice Results from CoolSculpting®?
The results from CoolSculpting® develop gradually as the body eliminates destroyed fat cells from the system. You may begin to notice results as early as three weeks after your treatment. However, most patients notice more significant results between one and three months after their CoolSculpting® treatment. In fact, your results may continue to improve for as long as six months after treatment. Depending on your treatment goals, we may recommend a series of CoolSculpting® treatments for optimal results.
Are the Results from CoolSculpting® Permanent?
The CoolSculpting® treatment by Allergan permanently destroys and eliminates the treated fat cells. This means that the results from CoolSculpting® can be incredibly long-lasting, and even permanent. However, future weight gain can affect the results of your CoolSculpting® treatment. We work closely with patients to help them develop a healthy diet and exercise habits so that they are able to maintain the results from their CoolSculpting® treatment for as long as possible.
How Much Does the CoolSculpting® Procedure Cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
