After seeing advertisements for CoolSculpting, you may have wondered if it can help you. You may have some belly fat or love handles that seem to stick around no matter how low the needle on this scale gets or no matter how much exercise you do. This is something that causes frustration for a lot of people. But, thanks to CoolSculpting, you can say goodbye to your love handles and belly fat. If you live in the Sacramento area, we would be happy to schedule a consultation for you.
Before you schedule a consultation, you may be interested in having some of your basic questions about CoolSculpting answered. One of the first things that we hear our clients ask that is if there are risks that are associated with using this treatment. While they would love to get rid of unwanted fat, they do not want to put themselves in harm’s way. You do not have to be worried about your safety when using CoolSculpting. This treatment has been cleared by the FDA to be used to get rid of your love handles and belly fat. Additionally, you do not have to worry about feeling uncomfortable during the treatment. Since cold is used to get rid of fat, you will feel a numbing sensation.
Something else that people wonder about is if they have to do anything to prepare or if they need any follow-up care after CoolSculpting. This is a completely non-invasive treatment, meaning you do not need to go through the normal preparations you would need when undergoing a medical procedure. And since no incisions are made and no medications are used, you do not have to worry about follow-up care. You can just get back to your job or family responsibilities right away.
Individuals who have realistic expectations are the best candidates for CoolSculpting. You need to truly understand what it does and how it works in order to feel satisfied with your CoolSculpting treatment. Take some time to look at before and after photographs of individuals who have used the treatment. You will notice that most people lose about 20 percent or so of the fat that is in the area where the applicator is applied. Something else that you will learn about CoolSculpting is that only specific areas can be treated. So one applicator will need to be applied on your left side and then another will be applied on your right in order for you to say goodbye to your love handles. If you just have a small amount of fat in the lower belly area, you may need the applicator to be applied once.
In the weeks that follow your CoolSculpting appointment, you will slowly start to see the treated area reduce in size. Since this is not a weight loss treatment, you are not likely to lose a clothing size. However, you will notice that your clothes may fit better than they used to.
