CoolSculpting® is a great treatment for patients who want to reduce fat from hard-to-lose areas. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, nonsurgical treatment that freezes fat cells through the skin. At Mesna Plastic Surgery, we recommend patients undergo two to three treatments of an hour each on targeted areas for slim, smooth results.
A good candidate for CoolSculpting is somebody that has pinchable fat. They do proper diet and exercise, but they still have those little bulges of fat. They would be a good candidate for Cool Sculpting. It’s anywhere from 2 to 3 treatments in the same area, about 4 weeks apart.
CoolSculpting takes 60 minutes per area, and your second treatment would be 4 weeks later. It’ll always be 60 minutes in the same area. The advantage of Cool Sculpting over liposuction is that there is no anesthesia involved and no downtime. A patient will start seeing results between 6 weeks and 4 months, and they will notice that the bulges have decreased significantly. They can lose up to 20 percent of fat per area after each treatment.
