Can you explain the CoolSculpting Procedure?
CoolSculpting uses a revolutionary controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis, that targets and cools your fat cells, eliminating them without damaging other tissue. Before the actual procedure begins, Dr. Snyder and his medical assistant will re-evaluate your specific areas of concern and he will mark the areas to be treated . Initially, you will experience a firm tugging sensation which lasts only a few minutes as the special vacuum applicator draws the tissue between two cooling plates where it will cool targeted fat cells for about an hour per treatment site. That’s all there is to it! Then, just sit back and relax throughout your treatment. Watch NetFlix movies, Broadway Shows, or your favorite television program on our 60″ Big Screen TV, surf the web, catch up on reading , or even take a nap if you like.
Does the procedure hurt?
No, it does not. When the applicator is applied and the cooling begins, you will experience an immediate sensation of intense cold, but this goes away within just a few minutes and throughout the remainder of each one hour treatment the area will feel numb and so comfortable that many patients choose to sleep throughout their treatment. After the procedure, there may be temporary numbness, tingling, or soreness in the treated areas that can last up to a few weeks.
When can I expect to see results?
Many patients are excited to see noticeable fat reduction starting as early as three weeks after treatment, but you should expect that your most dramatic results will occur two to four months after your CoolSculpting procedure.
Can areas be treated more than once?
Yes. Many patients are interested in what we call “Treating to Transformation” for even more impressive results. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Snyder will glady evaluate your areas of specific concern and design a treatment program with you to achieve your optimal results.
How long will my results last?
The results from CoolSculpting are permanent. The treated fat cells are destroyed and eliminated from your body and will never come back. The adult body will not produce new fat cells. Only the remaining fat cells can expand if you were to gain weight.
Can CoolSculpting be combined with other treatments?
Absolutely! Many patients not only have stubborn fat they will like removed with CoolSculpting, but also have areas of loose, sagging skin, which can be significantly tightened with theReaction™ Refit Procedure. Combining these procedures can produce very dramatic results.
