Most people have problem areas with stubborn fat that won’t respond to their diet or fitness routine. Even the fittest individuals struggle with pockets of stubborn fat that keep them from looking and feeling their best. If you can relate, we can help. At our Rejuvenate Med Spa locations in Woodridge and Oak Brook, IL, we offer an effective, non-surgical body contouring treatment called Coolsculpting that can help you take your body to the next level.
How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Should You Get?
Patients who choose Coolsculpting to address their problem areas will require a unique treatment plan based on their needs and ultimate goals. It’s unlikely that two patients will require the same number of treatments to achieve their results because different patients have different needs and goals. Your treatment plan will be completely personalized to your unique needs and may include one or several sessions.
Treatment Plans Based on Your Goals
Since different patients choose to target different areas of their bodies, each treatment plan will be tailored to that patient’s needs. The best way to determine how many Coolsculpting sessions you should get is by scheduling a consultation with one of our experts. During this consultation, our technician will evaluate your problem areas, learn more about your medical history, and then determine if this treatment is right for you.
Once we confirm that you are a good candidate, we can schedule your treatment and provide you with a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve the best results possible.
Customizing Your Treatment
Depending on your specific problem area, you may need one or more sessions to adequately eliminate your desired amount of stubborn fat. However, some patients scheduled multiple sessions to address multiple areas of their bodies. If you want to treat one or more areas with stubborn fat, be sure to mention each area during your consultation so that one of our experts can evaluate your planned treatment areas and confirm that we can help you reach your body goals.
What Is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment. It’s completely non-invasive that uses very cold temperatures to freeze stubborn fat cells. Fat cells cannot withstand freezing temperatures, and this treatment takes advantage of that fact by blasting your unwanted fat cells with cold temperatures to freeze and ultimately destroy them.
The result is a tighter and more contoured-looking body, and you’ll finally be free of those fat cells that have been keeping you from looking and feeling the best.
What Areas Can It Improve?
Patients love this body contouring treatment so much because it is extremely versatile. It can improve many different areas of the body, so whether you’re looking to target one specific area or you want to improve multiple areas, we can design the right treatment plan that helps you accomplish and exceed your body goals. This treatment can improve some of the following areas with stubborn fat:
- Submental fullness below the chin
- The upper and lower midsectionFlanks
- Love handles, also known as flanks
- Bra Fat
- Inner and outer thighs
- Buttock fat, also known as the banana roll
How Does It Actually Work?
If you’re wondering how this body contouring device can actually eliminate those stubborn fat cells that you’ve been trying to get rid of unsuccessfully with a healthy diet and workout routine, we want to explain the process. Though it may seem too good to be true, this treatment is so effective because it operates according to a scientific process.
A Scientific Process
Harvard-based scientists discovered that when fat cells are frozen, they experience cell death, and in this particular instance, the process is called cryopolysis. Fat cells don’t like cold temperatures, and when they are frozen, they crystallize and are destroyed. They can no longer store fat, and once they break down as a result of those cold temperatures, the body will then view them as waste.
The body will use the lymphatic system to gradually eliminate those fat cells. You will see a slow and steady improvement in your problem area as it does. You’ll notice a significantly decreased total fat volume, and those problem areas will continue to improve over time. This treatment has been proven to be an effective way to finally eliminate those exercise and diet-resistant fat cells.
What Kind of Treatment Process Can I Expect?
Once you attend your initial consultation and are cleared to begin a treatment plan with Coolsculpting, we will schedule your treatments. When you arrive, you’ll be situated in a treatment room, and we will place the device applicator on your chosen treatment area.
Once your technician initiates the treatment, you’ll feel an intense cooling sensation that will subside within a few minutes. The cold temperatures will make the treatment area go numb, and you’ll be able to lay back and relax as the device freezes away your stubborn fat.
When Will I See Results?
Because this treatment is a non-surgical alternative to surgical fat removal procedures like liposuction, you won’t see immediate results after initial treatment, but you will see results. Most patients begin to see improvements in their problem areas within three weeks of their initial treatment.
Depending on your treatment plan, you may need one or more sessions to achieve your desired results. An expert technician will develop the right treatment plan for you and provide you with detailed information about when you will see results after your treatment.
Are the Results Permanent?
Coolsculpting delivers some incredible results, and those results can be permanent, as long as you’re committed to maintaining them. While this treatment will eliminate stubborn fat cells from the body, it’s important that you avoid weight gain post-treatment so that you can maintain your results long-term. Coolsculpting treatments will significantly reduce the fat volume in your problem areas by up to 30%.
However, it won’t remove every fat cell, so if you do gain weight, any remaining fat cells may expand, which will negatively impact the appearance of that treatment area. All you have to do to maintain long-term results is to commit to living a healthy lifestyle, eating a healthy diet, and exercising consistently.
Maintaining Your Results
Most patients who seek treatment already understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle, have a consistent workout routine, and eat a healthy diet.
Some patients find that undergoing this treatment helps reignite their motivation to live a healthier lifestyle, eat a healthier diet, and exercise more consistently.
Whether you want to take your body to the next level or improve your problem areas to get some new motivation to reach new goals, this treatment is the perfect way to improve your physical appearance and increase your confidence.
Is It Safe?
Not only is this treatment effective, but it’s completely safe. You can rest assured that when you choose Coolsculpting to target those unwanted fat cells, you’re choosing a treatment that’s been studied and FDA-approved to improve different areas of the body.
It doesn’t require any anesthesia, incisions, or needles. It’s completely non-invasive and won’t even require any downtime. It’s safe, proven, and will finally help you reach your body goals in a way that your lifestyle cannot.
Am I a Candidate?
The best candidates for this body contouring treatment are healthy patients who want to eliminate stubborn fat but can’t do it on their own. It’s important to note that this treatment is not a weight-loss treatment. Instead, it’s a way to target and destroy those pockets of excess fat that keep you from seeing muscle definition and prevent your clothes from fitting how they should.
The best candidates are healthy men and women who understand the treatment process, what it can do, and what it cannot. There are some patients who will not qualify for treatment due to safety precautions. Such patients include pregnant or nursing women, patients who are extremely sensitive to cold temperatures, and patients who qualify as obese. An initial consultation is necessary to determine whether this body contouring treatment is the right choice for you.
