What to expect
The first step is to call us and schedule a free consultation with one of our trained professionals. At that appointment you can tell us the area/areas that bother you. We will assess you to make sure you are a good candidate and recommend which applicators we should use and how many areas need to be addressed.
Who is a good candidate
The best candidates are within 50 pounds of their ideal weight, have a specific fat bulge or bulges that bother them and are healthy. Some people might eliminate the entire fat bulge in one treatment, while other people might need to do a second round of Cool Sculpting to achieve their goals. If you have more than 50 pounds to lose, our doctors at The Natural Path To Healing can help you lose initial weight, then we can come in and sculpt your body, helping you with those stubborn areas that you can't get rid of.
Cool Sculpting is incredibly safe. There have been millions of Cool Sculpting treatments done since it's inception. It has a very high satisfaction rate but it is still a medical procedure, although it doesn't involve any needles, no anesthesia, no down time. We want to make sure you are a healthy candidate so one of our Naturopathic Doctors will do an exam on you to make sure there are no medical issues. This exam could be done at your consultation or later.
Once we have determined how we can help you, and you have been cleared by our doctors, we can begin the treatment! Depending on you and how certain you are when you come to the consult, this can happen on the same day, or you can think about it and schedule the treatment at a later date. Once you are ready, we will begin the actual treatment by marking the area we will work on, apply a gel barrier to protect the skin, then apply the applicator. The applicator creates a suction, drawing the fat into it, then slowly cools it over the next hour. Your doctor/tech will have a pager, you will have wifi, snacks, water, and we make sure you are comfortable the whole time. After the hour is up, the area will be massaged, killing more fat cells and that's it! Your body will do the rest. Over the next 6-12 weeks, the dead fat cells will be processed through your body and expelled.
How much does a treatment cost?
That depends on what you want to accomplish! The prices range from $750 on up. Discounts are given if multiple areas are treated. Some people just need a single applicator, some need several to accomplish their goals. The best option is to schedule a free consult and discuss what your desired outcome is and we can go from there. There are many sizes of applicators, and many shapes. The large applicator can be used for a large fat bulge, such as the lower abdomen, or upper abdomen. The smaller applicators can be used to finely sculpt areas of the abdomen, flanks, bra strap fat etc. You pay per applicator, with discounts given for multiple applicators. Below is an example of a woman who purchased two small "cool curve" applicators. The price for this treatment would be $1,200. The list price per small applicator is $750, but when two are purchased the price drops to $600 per applicator. This is an example only, all people come in different shapes and need a tailored approach.
What areas can be treated?
Cool Sculpting can treat any area of the body that fat can be drawn into an applicator. The most common areas are the front of the abdomen, "muffin top" or flanks, bra strap fat, outer thigh, double chin and below the buttocks (top of thigh).
How many times do I have to do it?
Well, that depends on how much fat you want to lose! Every time we do a treatment we are killing approximately 25% of the fat that we can fit into the applicator. Some people don't have that much fat, and one treatment can produce dramatic results. Other people need one treatment to "debulk" the area, and come in again to finely sculpt the area. Since every body is different, the best idea is to come in and schedule a free consult with one of our certified techs.
Does the fat come back?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What can I expect from the procedure?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you may typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
When will I notice the results?
After your treatment, your body will begin to eliminate your dead fat cells safely and slowly through your lymphatic system. Some people start noticing a positive change after approximately a month, with results increasing over the next two months. The average time it takes to achieve the desired results is 6-12 weeks.
