Fat Reduction Q & A

Poway Women’s Care

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting technology uses a precisely controlled cooling system that targets fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. The targeted cells freeze and die off without harming surrounding tissue.

Your body then eliminates the dead cells naturally as a waste product, leaving you a dramatic reduction in unwanted fat and noticeably slimmer contours.

Why should I consider CoolSculpting?

If you’re interested in eliminating excess fat but don’t want to risk surgery, CoolSculpting may be the ideal treatment solution.

You can eliminate stubborn fat in different areas of your body that you can lose through a proper diet and regular exercise. The staff at Poway Women’s Care can use CoolSculpting technology on areas like your:

  • Back
  • Belly
  • Buttocks
  • Chin
  • Hips
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms

To be considered for treatment, you should be in good overall health, within a few pounds of a healthy weight, and have reasonable expectations for procedure results.

What can I expect during CoolSculpting treatments?

During the procedure, you may experience periods of extreme cold when the system cycles on. You may also feel some pulling and pinching during treatment, which is normal and generally tolerable.

Gradually, your skin becomes numb from the cold and you can sit back and relax until the treatment is over. Many treatments can be completed in less than an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does CoolSculpting require any downtime?

One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting treatments is the fact you can return to your usual activities immediately after treatment, without limitations.

You may have some redness in the treatment area that resolves on its own without additional treatment.

How long does it take to see results from CoolSculpting?

It takes time for your body to process the dead cells and you can expect to start seeing changes to your body contours within three weeks of treatment. Over several weeks, your body continues to dispose of fat cells and you should see optimum results of treatment with eight weeks.

As long as you continue to eat a healthy diet and stay active, you can expect the results of CoolSculpting to last for the long-term. Once destroyed, fat cells can grow back and you can maintain your result with healthy lifestyle choices.
