My name is Kevin Adams and I’m here to introduce to you the revolutionary Coolsculpting procedure. I’m a Coolsculpting technician working in Atlanta and I will be answering the most commonly asked questions regarding the procedure. So here we go.
Am I a good candidate for Coolsculpting?
You know you’re a good candidate for Coolsculpting for several different reasons. First, I think everyone has stubborn fat that just won’t go away, whether it’s through diet or exercise. And if you have stubborn areas isolated throughout your body, whether it’s on your thighs, abdomen, flanks, back or even your arms, usually make you a good candidate. What probably doesn’t make you a good candidate is if you have a lot of redundant skin that you achieved after a lot of weight loss because that skin isn’t going to go away with Coolsculpting. But really, if you have the localized fat throughout your body, I think you’re a good candidate.
How much does Coolsculpting cost?
The cost of Coolsculpting Atlanta depends on how many areas are treated. To treat an abdomen for instance, could be around 4 different areas. Now it’s priced per area, but no one really gets that but it’s roughly $750. Treating multiple areas will lead to greater discounts. The more areas you buy, you get a significant discount and you can use those to treat other areas such as your thighs or your back, or even your arms.
What does the procedure feel like?
Zeltiq’s Coolsculpting can really be broken down into two types of feelings: the treatment feeling and the recovery (afterwards) feeling. At the initial treatment, you’ll feel a suction as the applicator is applied, similar to if you had a vacuum applied to your skin. And then as the cooling element starts, it really starts to get rid of any discomfort from that. Afterwards, as you go through recovery, in the initial few days, you might feel a little numb. As you progress through the recovery period, it gets a little crampy but it usually goes away after 7-10 days.
Where does my fat go?
A lot of my patients will ask where the fat goes after Coolsculpting. The fat cells are actually permanently removed during the freezing process. What happens is, they’re triggered into going through a programmed cell death. As they’re shriveling up, your body breaks them down and excretes them in a normal pattern similar to removing any other toxins or dead cells from the body.
Is Coolsculpting safe?
Aside from being very effective, Coolsculpting is very safe. The researchers behind the technology spent years studying the efficacy and safety factor involved. It’s also FDA cleared and having had over 1 million people treated, there is a very high safety profile to this technology.
