What is CoolSculpting? 

Coolsculpting is also considered a “fat freezing” treatment. This body sculpting treatment was FDA approved in 2010. Scientists studied what happens to fat during frostbite. What they found was that when the fat is exposed to freezing temperatures it destroys it while the skin and tissues remain unharmed. This treatment is painless and involves zero needles. The way that it works is one of our providers at Images Med Spa will apply paddles to the area anytime between 30-60mins. During the treatment, the paddles will become very cold and this is when the fat cells start getting destroyed. 

 

Does CoolSculpting Hurt?

Coolsculpting can be uncomfortable but it doesn’t hurt. Some patients might be recommended to do a few sessions; it all depends on the area that you want to be treated. Most patients say the first few minutes are not pleasant until your body adjusts and becomes numb from the freezing. The massaging part of the treatment will make the area feel sore but besides that, it is all a breeze. Compared to a surgical treatment there is no anesthesia involved and no required recovery time which is a huge factor for those who don’t want to go through an invasive surgery for stubborn fat removal. We all live busy lives and it can be easy to push your own goals to the side with other responsibilities. But your goals should always be a priority and at Images Med Spa we want to help you reach them.

Treatment Day! 

First we will want to make sure you’ve received a consultation and feel comfortable and ready for your treatment. The day of receiving coolsculpting one of our specialist at Images Med Spa in Mokena will mark and measure the area that is being treated. A gel sheet is then placed on the skin to the protect the skin from the cooling technology. Now that the area is prepped and ready we will get to suctioning. The coolsculpting applicator acts as a suction cup this essentially draws the undesired fat cells away from your body through cooling panels. 

 

Post Treatment

For everyone the symptoms vary post treatment it all depends on the patient and their recommended treatment plan to reach the best results. Immediately after your treatment the skin will feel cold and firm. Redness, swelling, tenderness and even bruising is a possibility post treatment but this is all temporary. Results for this treatment are no immediate and might not start showing up till 3 weeks after receiving your treatment. But the most dramatic results will show up between 2 or 3 months. Within these months the body is processing the injured fat cells and working toward reducing them. The fat layer that once took place in the area you got treatment will begin to appear tighter and smaller. 

 

Who Can Get Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting might sound like the most ideal weight loss plan. The problem is that coolsculpting is not the best option if you overall trying lose weight. Coolsculpting we often describe as a spot reducing treatment because it only treat certain stubborn fat areas. This treatment is for the individual who is at a healthy weight and not significantly overweight. Most clients that are looking to treat just a few problem areas are always pleased with the end result. 

If you’re looking to contour your body with coolsculpting and take it to the next level while still staying on top of a balanced diet and workout regimen then book your consultation today 708.435.2266❤.

 If looking good makes you feel good then look good ladies!
