Learn how Coolsculpting works from professional in Youngstown for body contouring
At our practice, we believe in providing our patients with the solutions they need for looking and feeling their best. Patients in the areas of Youngstown, Akron, and Chagrin Falls, Ohio can enjoy non-invasive solutions for contouring the body including Coolsculpting.
How Coolsculpting works
Our patients are interested in using Coolsculpting to target areas of the body that are problematic for them. This includes:
- Abdominal area
- Upper arms
- Love handles
With Coolsculpting, a special device achieves cryolipolysis. This is like liposuction, but with a device that freezes the fat away instead. Cryolipolysis is safe, effective, and does not require surgical intervention. This makes it the perfect non-invasive solution for patients who are worried about scarring, but want to enjoy improved body contours with the treatment of unwanted fat on specific areas. Treatments are done right in our office and can be repeated for optimum results.
How many Coolsculpting treatments are needed?
Many patients will see results with just one treatment. Most patients will see approximately 20% fat reduction with a single appointment. However, for optimum improvements, it is important for patients to consider scheduling several sessions weeks apart. This ensures dramatic enhancements that can only be achieved otherwise with surgical treatments. The benefit of this treatment is the ability to get results without surgery. During an initial consultation appointment with our team, patients can ask about the number of treatments they would need to see the changes they desire.
Are results immediate?
No. Because of the way Coolsculpting works, results are seen over the course of time. This is because the device freezes the fat cells, which are then slowly flushed out of the body in a gradual manner. When combined with appropriate diet and exercise, patients will see even more changes in their appearance. This is extremely beneficial for those who do not want to appear as though they have had “work done” and are seeking natural changes. We encourage patients to view our before and after pictures available in our practice to see how many lives we have changed for our patients.
Is Coolsculpting safe?
Yes, of course! At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine, our professionals ensure that everything provided in our practice is safe and effective for our patients. The Coolsculpting device is approved by the FDA and is a great option for patients who want to avoid surgical techniques such as liposuction. It eliminates the need for incisions in the skin. It is also performed without anesthetics and patients can rest and read a magazine or play on their phone while they allow treatment to work.
What are the side effects of Coolsculpting?
As with any procedure, there may be after-effects. With Coolsculpting, this often includes redness, discomfort, and bruising in the treatment area. This is short term and will go away on its own. Patients will start to see changes in the treatment area within a few weeks, with continued improvement over the course of six months. The more often patients have appointments for Coolsculpting services, the faster they will see changes. There are no long-term side effects to Coolsculpting, making it a wonderful option for our patients to consider when they want something that is safe, effective, and free from concerns.
