What Does CoolSculpting® Feel Like?

When looking for needle-free treatments to reduce stubborn body fats, you may have stumbled upon CoolSculpting®. To determine if this fat-freezing treatment is right for you, Laser Clinics Australia shares important details and what to expect in this procedure.

What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive fat-freezing and body contouring procedure that uses patented cooling technology to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells. With minimal downtime and no surgery required, it's a safe and effective way for those looking to improve their body contours without requiring invasive procedures.

What To Expect:

  • Before the procedure

A consultation with a CoolSculpting® provider is recommended to determine if the treatment is for you. At Laser Clinics, our trusted team of Therapists will tailor a treatment plan for you to discuss your goals and expectations. It's essential to disclose any medical conditions or medications you are taking and any previous surgeries or procedures.

  • During the procedure

A gel pad and applicator will be placed in the treatment areas, including the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, flanks, chin, arms, or bra fat. With built-in safety measures, the applicator delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells, freezing and eliminating them.

You may typically feel intense cold in the first few minutes as the treatment begins. However, it disappears as the treated areas become numb. Depending on the size and number of areas being treated, a CoolSculpting® treatment can take around 45 minutes, a perfect lunchbreak treatment on busy days.

  • After the procedure:

Patients may experience some temporary redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treatment area, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days. Numbness can persist for up to several weeks. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Over the next few weeks and months, the body will naturally eliminate the frozen fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in the treatment area. Results can vary, but most patients see up to a 27% reduction in multiple treatment areas within 2 to 4 months after the procedure.

Overall, CoolSculpting® is effective in eliminating stubborn bulges and unwanted fats. It helps you achieve a more sculpted and toned body. However, it’s important to remember that proper diet and exercise are essential for your overall health and wellness.
