Pure Luxe was the first to offer CoolSculpting in the Knoxville, TN area, and we're here to answer some questions you may have about the procedure!
What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen) and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. CoolSculpting results are long term because your body can not reproduce fat cells and treated fat cells are eliminated permanently.
What is the difference in fat reduction and weight loss?
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells increase in size. The CoolSculpting procedure reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
What can I expect?
Your first step is scheduling a complimentary consultation to see if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting. During your one-on-one consultation, you will receive a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
On your treatment day, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator will deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat. As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. During your procedure, you are free to read, check email, or even take a nap. After the CoolSculpting treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your CoolSculpting treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
