Frequently Asked Questions
+ How Cool is the CoolSulpting procedure? does it hurt?
As the name suggests, the CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly. Controlled cooling is delivered via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat. Though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching.
After you and Dr. Prokupek select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Vacuum applicators draw the tissue into the applicator cup. Applicators are secured to the treatment area. All applicators deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat.
+ Can I multitask during my treatment?
Absolutely! Many people read, check email, or even take a nap during their treatments. You are encouraged to do whatever feels most comfortable for you. So sit back, relax, and say goodbye to stubborn fat!
+ IS THERE DOWNTIME?
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process. Often times, patients even return to work after their CoolSculpting treatment is over.
+ How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?
Dr. Prokupek will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. While each CoolSculpting treatment generally lasts about 1 hour, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. Some practices even have multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators, so it’s possible for a patient to have multiple areas treated at once. You and Dr. Prokupek may also schedule additional treatments or office visits in order to meet your goals.
+ Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Check out the How It Works of the CoolSculpting procedure to learn more.
+ WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment
