There are various non-invasive fat reduction treatments now available, but CoolSculpting is one of the most popular. It is designed to get rid of isolated pockets of fat on the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is an attractive alternative to surgery, because it requires no downtime. But how exactly is the procedure done, and is CoolSculpting really worth the cost?
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that uses controlled cooling to melt away areas of stubborn fat. It is most often used on the arms, abdomen, thighs, and under the chin.
How does it work?
The CoolSculpting applicator is applied to the target area, and the suction pull the excess skin into the device. Patients will feel some pressure on the skin in the first few minutes of the procedure, but the area will eventually become numb as a result of the cold.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting varies depending on the number of areas being treated, and the circumferential reduction desired. The average cost for treating multiple areas is $2,000.
Is CoolSculpting worth the cost?
Most patients experience 20-30% fat loss in a single CoolSculpting session, and there will be continued improvements in the months that follow. CoolSculpting eliminates fat in the places that cannot be targeted by exercise. Hence many people who have undergone the procedure believe that the results are well worth the cost.
Do you have a little ‘pooch’ around your midsection that you would like to lose, or upper arm fat that needs to go? CoolSculpting may just be the right procedure for you.
