Freezing fat away sounds too good to be true, 5 ways to know if CoolSculpting is right for you!

Over the years, CoolSculpting has quickly risen to the top of the list of most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments – and it’s easy to see why. Beyond its short treatment and recovery time, Coolsculpting has been proven time and again to freeze away unwanted fat cells. But is this a sign that this body sculpting option is too good to be true? Nope. Thousands of patients are excited by its transformative effects on their problem areas. Consider these signs that determine whether you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting.

You Have Healthy Habits and Are Close to Your Goal Weight

First and foremost, CoolSculpting is a fat blasting treatment, not a weight loss alternative. Although you may lose a few pounds as a result of extensive body sculpting, comprehensive weight loss is best achieved with other treatments. For the best results, we recommend CoolSculpting for patients who are already close to their goal weight and who already have a healthy diet and exercise routines.

You’re Not Pregnant or Thinking About Becoming Pregnant

One of the benefits of fat removal is that once cells have been eliminated, they’re gone for good, barring significant weight gain. While it can be tempting to have CoolSculpting done between children, we recommend waiting until you are no longer considering future pregnancies and are done with that chapter of your life. As pregnancy can create new fat deposits around the body, it can undo your treatment results or create new areas that need to be targeted.

You’re Not Interested in Liposuction or Surgery

Liposuction and abdominoplasty are great options for removing excess fat cells and tightening skin. For others, the nature of procedure and recovery times are less appealing. Though it is considered a minimally-invasive surgery, it does require small incisions. For others, liposuction would be overkill for how little fat is present. CoolSculpting offers a non-surgical yet highly effective alternative. As the treatment is conducted without any incisions, recovery is virtually non-existent. Patients experience some bruising that typically dissipates on its own within a few days, but they are able to return to work immediately following their treatments.

You Have Stubborn Fat

Fat loss doesn’t always occur evenly across the body. Stubborn fat pockets can persist despite a consistent workout schedule, leaving men and women struggling to target these unwanted lumps and bulges. In these instances CoolSculpting is an excellent option, as it allows patients to freeze away fat cells and tone these hard-to-reach areas without turning to surgery. Best of all, the different applicator types make it easy to reach almost any part of the body with ease.

You Have Realistic Expectations

While CoolSculpting can certainly give you life-changing results, it’s important to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for patients. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat loss solution and should not be used for weight loss. As the procedure is non-invasive, it can take several sessions in order to freeze all the unwanted fat cells, which your body must then metabolize out. As a result, it can take anywhere from several weeks to several months to see your final results.
