You’re in generally good shape, but there’s a roll around the middle that seems determined to stay. Rather than learning how to live with the roll, it’s worth looking into cosmetic procedures that would help you remove it. CoolSculpting® could be the answer. By arranging a consultation with us, you can find out if this is the right choice for you.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is known as fat freezing or cryolipolysis. It’s the targeted application of cold as a means to freeze fat cells. Those frozen cells die and are gradually eliminated through the body’s natural processes. As they are eliminated, you begin to notice the affected area is leaner and you achieve a more toned look.
Who is a Candidate for This Procedure?
The ideal candidate for this treatment in Louisville is at or near their desired body weight. The patient will also harbor realistic expectations about this procedure and what it can accomplish.
How Long Does a Session Last?
The typical session will last for less than an hour. During that time, you will be in a relaxed position. Many patients find that the time passes quickly and that the session itself is somewhat relaxing. Other than experiencing the sensation of cold in the targeted areas, you will feel perfectly comfortable.
Is This a Way to Lose Weight?
There is a myth that undergoing CoolSculpting® in Louisville is a way to lose weight. That’s not true. The process works by freezing fat cells that then die and are eliminated as part of the body’s waste. What does happen is that fat under the skin is eliminated and the bulge around your midriff or any other area targeted shrinks as those cells disappear. If you want to lose more weight, it’s back to maintaining a reasonable exercise regimen coupled with diet, or undergoing some procedure designed to surgically remove excess weight.
How Will I Feel After CoolSculpting®?
Many patients notice a numb sensation in the area targeted by the CoolSculpting®. The sensation usually begins the day of your first session and continues for a few days afterwards. Most patients report that the numbness does not interfere with going about their daily routines. Patients who choose to undergo CoolSculpting® under the care of our professional team in Louisville generally begin to see results in a matter of weeks. You’ll see the full benefit within months.
Will I Need More Than One Session?
Many people find that one session of CoolSculpting® is enough. Others may choose to have up to multiple sessions over a period of several months. Our team will monitor your condition and help you decide if an additional session is needed and when you can safely have that second session.
