CoolSculpting Ft. Myers
Developed by a Harvard scientist, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, effective and does exactly what it’s supposed to do… help get rid of unwanted fat.
CoolSculpting is more than a ray of hope – it’s a loophole in the laws of gravity. This revolutionary new technology targets and crystallizes stubborn fat cells. The crystallized fat cells gradually die off, then naturally eliminated from the body. In the weeks and months following treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer.
No needles, no special diet, no supplements, no surgery. And most importantly, no downtime. Most people see an undeniable reduction of fat after a few CoolSculpting treatments. In as little as an hour, this contouring treatment can get you back the body you deserve. Starting today, reclaim the real you with CoolSculpting.
Muffin tops. Love handles. Spare tires. These lumps and bumps cause your belt to slide in the wrong direction and your little black dress to be too little. You skip dessert. You hit the gym. No matter how hard you work at losing them, they’re immune to diet and exercise. Something other than your belt has got to give. You don’t feel as confident in your own skin as you should. Or could.
What you need to know about CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting was developed by ZELTIQ to offer an alternative to surgical liposuction. Like traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells in your body, as opposed to weight loss, which just shrinks them. According to experts, eliminating fat cells provides better long-term results than weight loss alone.
CoolSculpting kills fat cells by exposing them to cold temperatures. Researchers have found that fat is more susceptible to cold than other cells in your body. The CoolSculpting machine lowers to a temperature of about 23 degrees fahrenheit, freezing fat cells but leaving the surrounding tissue safe.
During a CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure, a gel pad and special vacuum applicator are attached to the area you’re having treated. The machine precisely cools the area for 35-60 minutes.
As a result, fat cells under the skin are frozen and die. Over the next several weeks, the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, and the treated area becomes slimmer.
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is patented and FDA-approved. The science behind it has been the subject of extensive clinical research to validate the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting.
Common questions about CoolSculpting
What does it cost?
CoolSculpting fat-freezing typically costs between $2,000–$4,000.
Prices will vary based on your desired treatment areas and goals for fat reduction. Given the individualized nature of the procedure, CoolSculpting providers will work with you to develop a treatment plan to suit your goals and budget. Most providers offer flexible payment plans or financing through a healthcare lender.
What happens to frozen fat cells? Can they come back?
No, CoolSculpting permanently eliminates fat cells.
CoolSculpting fat-freezing instigates a form of cell death called apoptosis, which naturally occurs in the body as cells age and die. Once the immune system recognizes frozen fat cells are dead, a cleanup process is triggered in which special white blood cells called macrophages break down and consume the dead cells. The dead fat cell material is digested and recycled as fuel for macrophages to continue cleanup elsewhere in the body.
What if I gain weight after my CoolSculpting procedure?
Weight gain causes the fixed number of fat cells in the body to expand. If you gain weight after the procedure, your remaining fat cells will expand. Those who do gain weight after CoolSculpting gain it evenly all over their body, not just in the treated area.
Who can have CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting fat-freezing is equally effective for adult men and women. It’s best for people who are at or near their ideal body weight, because it treats specific areas where excess fat causes unwanted bulges despite diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
This procedure is not a weight loss solution for people wishing to treat obesity or lose a significant amount of fat. Additionally, certain autoimmune and blood diseases such as cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria may make CoolSculpting too dangerous for some people.
What parts of my body can I treat with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting fat-freezing can treat thighs, abdomen, flank (sides/hips), upper arms, areas of the back and the submental area (double chin).
What does the procedure feel like?
CoolSculpting applicators use gentle suction to attach to treatment areas, so there will be a tugging sensation. As the name suggests, the first few minutes will feel very cold on the targeted area, but your skin will become numb within the first 10 minutes of the treatment. Most people are relaxed enough to read or watch TV during their procedure.
What is the aftermath and recovery like?
Immediately after the procedure, expect the treated areas to bruise and swell as a reaction to the applicator’s suction. It is normal for swelling to make treated areas appear “worse” than before. These areas will steadily shrink as swelling decreases and dead fat cells are processed and eliminated.
Minor soreness or discomfort is common, but should be manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers. Most people return to normal activities immediately after their procedure.
When will I notice the full results?
Most patients start to notice results about three weeks after their procedure. Results should be fully visible about two months after a procedure, but the body can continue flushing dead fat cells as long as six months later.
Most clinics schedule follow-up appointments in which patients may discuss their results and schedule another CoolSculpting fat-freezing session if necessary. CoolSculpting typically freezes about 25 percent of the fat cells in a treated area, so your provider may recommend multiple sessions.
Who provides CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is only available through medical practices certified by ZELTIQ, the company that developed and patented CoolSculpting fat-freezing technology, devices and procedures. Every procedure is administered by a trained healthcare professional and supervised by medical doctors. This means that you should get similar results regardless of which provider you choose. Once you’ve determined whether CoolSculpting is right for you, think about these services when picking a provider.
You may need to have more than one CoolSculpting session. Choose a location that’s close to your home or near hotel accommodations.
CoolSculpting is a medical procedure. It might be performed in a doctor’s office or a med-spa. Think about which atmosphere you’re more comfortable in.
Because CoolSculpting fat-freezing costs a few thousand dollars, you may want to finance the procedure. Ask the provider you’re considering whether they offer financing or accept financing from healthcare lenders.
To save money, ask about special promotions for CoolSculpting. Many providers have seasonal discounts and specials.
If you’re interested in other cosmetic procedures, look for an office with those services. Having a single provider can make life more convenient. If you’re not sure if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, look for an office that offers multiple treatments for fat reduction; they can help you pick the right procedure.
