CoolSculpting Northern Virginia
If you are looking for a nonsurgical alternative to eliminate stubborn fat bulges and achieve your body goals, CoolSculpting Reston may offer an ideal solution. However, before undergoing this safe and effective body contouring treatment, you likely have a number of questions: Does CoolSculpting work? Is it safe? What does CoolSculpting feel like? How quickly can I see results from fat freezing?
For the answer to these questions, and everything you need to know about CoolSculpting Reston, read on.
Why is CoolSculpting the Safest and Most Effective Body Contouring Treatment?
CoolSculpting was invented by two Harvard scientists who discovered the ideal temperature (11 degrees Celsius) for fat cell destruction. They also observed that controlled cooling could selectively target and freeze fat without adversely affecting surrounding tissues and structures.
For these reasons, treatment is both extremely safe and effective. In fact, the FDA-approved treatment is considered the #1 noninvasive body contouring procedure and can eliminate up to 24% of subcutaneous fat cells.
How Does CoolSculpting Work
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?
CoolSculpting Northern Virginia can be used to slim and shape almost any part of the body including the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, hips, banana roll, back, upper arms, submental (double chin), and submandibular (jawline).
Who is An Ideal CoolSculpting Candidate?
Most healthy women and men make good candidates. These individuals typically lead an active lifestyle and are within 20-30 pounds of their target weight. However, despite their best efforts, they often struggle with diet and exercise resistant fat bulges.
CoolSculpting Northern Virginia is also an excellent option for patients who are unwilling or unable to undergo a surgical procedure, like liposuction, that involves unnecessary risk and recovery.
What Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Feel Like?
CoolSculpting Reston is an extremely comfortable treatment that doesn’t require any anesthesia.
During the procedure, a selected applicator suctions fatty tissue between two cooling panels. Patients may note a slight pulling or tugging sensation and feel the device’s controlled cooling for the first 5-7 minutes.
After this time, the treatment area becomes numb, and individuals shouldn’t feel much of anything for the rest of the procedure. In fact, a majority of patients bring a laptop to do work, watch TV, or relax for the duration of the treatment process.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Take?
Depending on the size and location being treated, a cycle can take 35-45 minutes. If multiple areas are being targeted during one appointment, two devices may be used simultaneously to cut treatment time in half. This approach is known as DualSculpting.
Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?
In the hands of a skilled and experienced provider, CoolSculpting Northern Virginia is an extremely safe procedure. However, there are some mild and temporary side effects that patients should be aware of. These include short term redness, swelling and/or numbness in the area treated, particularly when larger areas are treated. Bruising is also a possibility.
In most cases, side effects resolve on their own in a matter of days to a couple of weeks, without interfering with daily activities or routine.
Can Patients Workout After CoolSculpting?
One of the key benefits is that it is a zero-downtime procedure. Accordingly, women and men are free to go about their day as they normally would post-treatment, including engaging in regular exercise later that evening.
How Long Does It Take to See CoolSculpting Results?
Patients can begin to see visible fat reduction within 4-6 weeks. Over the next 8-12 weeks, effects become more apparent and will continue to improve for up to 4-6 months.
At this time, women and men will be pleased to note decreased waist circumference, a looser fit to their clothing, and a trimmer and more sculpted physique.
Are the Results Permanent?
Yes! the cryolipolysis process permanently destroys targeted fat cells, which are then eliminated from the body via natural detoxification channels. So, fat cells are gone for good.
As long as patients maintain a relatively stable weight and healthy lifestyle, they can enjoy their results indefinitely.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost can vary from patient to patient and is often determined by location and size of treatment area, individual goals, number of treatments needed, and provider expertise.
At your initial consultation with Dr. Rostami or Dr. Naz, they will carefully assess your concerns and develop a customized treatment plan, with estimated cost.
