What is CoolSculpt? Can you tell me more about it?
CoolSculpt is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. Dr. Elliott and his technicians will determine if you are a good candidate and work with you to determine the best treatment plan during a one-on-one consultation.
What happens during the procedure?
Using a technology developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpt targets and freezes fat cells causing their natural death in the treatment area. It’s completely non-invasive so there is no cutting, no needles and no anesthesia. Patients typically read, work on their laptops, listen to music or relax during the procedure.
Is CoolSculpt safe? Painful? Are there side effects?
CoolSculpt is FDA-cleared for the flanks and proven safe. Some patients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. Dr. Elliott and his technicians can talk to you more about what to expect during and after treatment when you meet for your consultation.
How long is each treatment?
During your consultation, Dr. Elliott will discuss how much time should be allotted based on your individual treatment plan. A typical treatment can last between one and three hours.
How much does CoolSculpt cost? How many treatments will I need?
The price for CoolSculpt varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Dr. Elliott and his technicians would need to assess you in person to help estimate the cost. Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but you may appreciate even more fat reduction with additional treatments.
Are CoolSculpt results permanent? How long do results last?
CoolSculpt results are lasting, as long as you maintain your healthy lifestyle. The fat cells that are eliminated from CoolSculpt do not return.
Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpt?
CoolSculpt is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Dr. Elliott and his technicians will determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.
What are the specific areas of the body that are being treated with CoolSculpt?
CoolSculpt is FDA-cleared for love handles. During your consultation, Dr. Elliott and his technicians will be able to determine your treatment plan based on your assessment.
