Stubborn fat around the midsection, thighs, or backside is an aesthetic concern for many people. While targeted workouts can help you tone these areas, you may still struggle with excess unwanted fat. This is where CoolSculpting treatment can help.
CoolSculpting uses deep cooling energy to permanently remove your body’s fat cells and enhance your figure. The Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center team offers CoolSculpting Elite in Oklahoma City, OK. Learn more about the CoolSculpting procedure and how it can help you achieve your aesthetic goals below.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses intense cooling energy to freeze fat cells.
The technology behind CoolSculpting directly targets the fat cells in your problem areas and lowers them to a temperature at which they cannot survive. This effectively destroys them before they are flushed from the body through the lymphatic drainage system.
We can apply CoolSculpting technology to almost anywhere on the body, but the most popular spots are the following:
- Upper arms
- Under the chin
CoolSculpting treatment is completely non-invasive and requires no anesthesia, incisions, or needles. Once your treatment is complete, you’re free to return to your normal activities, with no recovery process or downtime necessary.
CoolSculpting Elite is an updated version of the original CoolSculpting treatment. It provides even more extensive results than traditional CoolSculpting, helping patients achieve more fat loss at a faster rate.
These are just a few of the great features of CoolSculpting Elite:
- Faster, more extensive results
- Dual applicators to freeze more fat at one time
- Better grip and fit along the body
- Removable applicator heads
- Quieter machine for a more relaxing procedure
Our patients can receive either traditional CoolSculpting or CoolSculpting Elite, depending on their unique needs. CoolSculpting Elite can help patients who have more pronounced excess fat around the body.
Candidates for CoolSculpting Treatment
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment; instead, it is a fat reduction treatment.
If you have a significant amount of weight to lose, CoolSculpting treatment may not be the right procedure for you. CoolSculpting is intended for clients who are already within range of their ideal body weight but struggling with unwanted fat in certain problem areas.
The only way to find out whether CoolSculpting is right for you is by having a consultation with a cosmetic medicine provider. We will evaluate your current body fat and discuss the goal you’re trying to achieve. This will help determine whether CoolSculpting is an appropriate treatment.
The Complete CoolSculpting Procedure
CoolSculpting is a simple and effective procedure that many patients enjoy receiving. Learn more about the CoolSculpting process from start to finish below.
Before Your Session
Before your first CoolSculpting Elite session, you’ll attend a consultation appointment to evaluate your needs. We will examine your current figure and discuss your desired outcome to confirm that CoolSculpting is the best course of treatment. Once we confirm this, you will be able to have your first CoolSculpting session.
One of the best things about CoolSculpting is that there is no preparation required. All you need to do is show up for your appointment about 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled time, and we’ll take the rest from there.
During the CoolSculpting Procedure
During your CoolSculpting Elite session, you’ll be able to sit or lie back comfortably while we administer treatment. A device will be attached to your treatment areas, one region at a time. For most patients, this includes some combination of the stomach, back, buttocks, or thighs.
The CoolSculpting device will then emit intense cooling energy deep into the tissues of your skin. This brings the fat cells in that area down to a precise temperature to freeze them. Once the fat cells are frozen, they are permanently destroyed. These destroyed cells will later be removed from the body through your lymphatic drainage system.
The duration of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the areas being treated. For most patients, a session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Once complete, you will be able to return home and resume normal activities.
After your CoolSculpting Elite session, it will take several weeks to start seeing results. The earliest results can appear in as little as two to three weeks after treatment. You may notice a decrease in fat around certain problem areas around this time.
For most patients, it takes around three to four months to see the final results. This allows enough time for your body to remove all of the destroyed fat cells as waste.
Many patients wonder whether their CoolSculpting results will be permanent. This will depend on various factors. CoolSculpting will permanently remove existing fat cells, but it is always possible to form new ones.
It is essential that patients follow a healthy diet and get regular exercise in order to maintain their outcomes. Things like medication use and underlying medical conditions that lead to weight gain can also alter the results of your CoolSculpting treatment.
