This year has served up many surprises. At this point, it’s safe to say that we’re starting to realize things will not go back to normal anytime soon, if ever. One of the major changes that have occurred thanks to the arrival of the novel coronavirus is that many people are working from home. Even essential workers who continue to go to work are limited in their activities outside of the office. This marked dip in the level of activity we can engage in outside of the home has led many people to notice a little extra padding on their bodies. This is not something we have to accept.
The extra weight that many people have put on during this time of social distancing and relative quarantine at home can be managed. Yes, diet is paramount to weight loss and management. Exercise also remains important even though we may not be able to go to the gym or yoga studio. As you find ways to bring your workout home, you can also turn to CoolSculpting for a little help. CoolSculpting has been around for many years and is popular because it is non-invasive and does not require any downtime whatsoever. Here, we answer a few of the most common questions people have about this treatment.
Must I lose weight before CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment but it is a fat-reduction procedure. This may not make sense immediately. It’s easy to assume that removing fat would decrease weight. It doesn’t. Even liposuction doesn’t cause a significant change on the scale. The purpose of CoolSculpting is to contour the body by freezing fat cells. If you’re at a weight you can be satisfied with, then there is no need to lose weight before CoolSculpting. If you’d like to be 15 or more pounds lighter than you are, it may be advantageous to reach that goal and then get CoolSculpting to refine problem areas. This does not apply to submental fullness. Often, the fat that accumulates beneath the chin lingers even with weight loss. If you’ve got a double chin that needs to go, contact us for CoolSculpting now.
Does CoolSculpting really work?
CoolSculpting works. This technique had to work for the device to gain FDA-clearance all those years ago. Since that time, improvements have been made, resulting in an overall better experience. In addition to FDA-clearance, we can see the validity of CoolSculpting’s effectiveness in reviews. According to RealSelf, 83% of patients are very satisfied with the changes they achieved with CoolSculpting.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
One of the benefits of CoolSculpting is that it works with the body’s natural processes. Another is that it is a customizable treatment plan. Generally, 3 to 5 sessions get great results. However, some patients need more and some need less. The cost of CoolSculpting is something we determine after a thorough consultation and assessment of the problem area.
