We get this question ALL. THE. TIME.
The easy answer:
But there’s actually more that patients should know.
Here is our unbiased opinion of CoolSculpting (that’s what you get here in the Beauty Room). We’re putting aside the fact that we’ve treated thousands of patients and have created amazing transformations (we’ll get to that later).
“Freezing fat away though…seriously? It can’t actually work.”
People are often skeptical, but they’re also curious. Curiosity is good.
First, know this…we’re a practice that performs tried and true treatments. This standard has only strengthened our well-known reputation in results driven aesthetics for the last 28 years. We don’t treat our patients like guinea pigs. We only offer treatments that work, and that we know will yield results. So, did CoolSculpting get put through ALL the tests before we brought it on at Facial Aesthetics in Denver and Greenwood Village years ago? You better believe it.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that can contour the body without the need for anesthesia, incisions, or stitches. CoolSculpting uses an effective technology, called Cryolipolysis, to freeze and destroy fat cells. When the CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the treatment area, it subjects the fat cells to temperatures too cold for them to withstand. This kills the fat cells. Then, your body processes them and expels them using your body’s natural excretion process (through the liver). Cryolipolysis does not damage your skin or affect the surrounding, untargeted fat cells. It only targets stubborn fat deposits, which are usually resistant to diet and exercise no matter how hard you try.
Being an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is very important to the success of the treatment.
At Facial Aesthetics, we always make sure we’re treating the right patients to yield the BEST results. This body contouring procedure works best when patients are within 10-20 pounds of their goal weight. When a patient has more than 20-25 pounds to lose, we recommend other options to kickstart their weight loss journey, so they can come back to us when they’ll have the most success with this treatment, and really focus on slimming down those stubborn areas. Our honesty and excellent standard of care have saved many patients time and money. Often times we’ll see that patient back in our treatment rooms, and we’re so proud to be part of their journey.
CoolSculpting helps you lose the stubborn fat pockets in these targeted FDA cleared areas:
CoolSculpting is a fast, efficient treatment that can reduce your fat in one quick session. At Facial Aesthetics, treatments average about 35 minutes per area. This means that CoolSculpting is the ideal fat-removal treatment for busy people who can’t spare a lot of time out of their day.
Busy professional or stay-at-home-parent without lots of free time on your hands? There’s no reason your body goals have to slip in priority. Because CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive, you can resume your routine immediately following treatment. There are no restrictions on your ability to drive or exercise. In fact, the procedure is so quick and painless that many of our patients read a book, work on their laptop, watch their favorite show, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting sessions.
When CoolSculpting freezes and destroys your fat cells, they’re gone forever. CoolSculpting can permanently eradicate 20-25 percent of the fat cells in the treated area after one single treatment. And, when treated twice in the same area, you can eliminate up to 45% of the fat cells in that treated area. That is a significant amount of permanent fat reduction.
But, let’s be really honest about one thing… if you want your results to last a lifetime, you have to maintain them through a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise. CoolSculpting isn’t a ticket to eat whatever you want and become inactive – that is not good for anyone’s health. Even though the fat cells removed from your treatment area will never come back, you do have fat cells in other areas of the body that can expand if you gain weight post treatment – this is true for ANY body contouring procedure, including liposuction. It’s another reason why being close to your goal weight is so important. We want to ensure great success post-treatment through maintenance.
So, that short, immediate answer given above is coming back now:
