CoolSculpting Explained

Who knew that popsicles could lead to a medical discovery? But that’s exactly what happened when Harvard scientists Dieter Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD, observed that children who consumed a lot of the frozen treat developed dimples. The duo found this peculiar and eventually uncovered the process of cryolipolysis—the natural reaction of fat cells to a cold stimulus.

Cryolipolysis is the scientific process behind the CoolSculpting treatment, a non-invasive medical procedure that initiates the breakdown of unwanted fat cells. The procedure can help you target areas of your body that exercise and dieting have not been able to impact.

At Sona, our Greensboro CoolSculpting treatment involves the application of a cooling device on hard-to-lose fat deposits. During the procedure, the targeted cells are crystallized (frozen), setting off the process by which the cells break apart and are removed from the body.

CoolSculpting is not a replacement for an exercise regimen, and it is not intended to help you with weight loss. But, it will help you maximize the cosmetic effects of your workouts. The results stand up to the test of time.

CoolSculpting: Safe and FDA-Approved

CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA as a safe, non-invasive, fat-reduction treatment. The designation was earned after more than 5,000 participants completed CoolSculpting clinical trials. The procedure has proven to be a legitimate alternative to liposuction, offering patients a non-surgical option that does not require any significant recovery time.

After six million worldwide applications, CoolSculpting treatment has earned the status of a household name and the popularity continues to grow. A report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that fat-reduction treatments like CoolSculpting increased by 7% from 2016 to 2017.

The Myths of CoolSculpting

For any popular cosmetic treatment, there are always a few misconceptions and half-truths floating around. Our Greensboro CoolSculpting is no different.

Below are a few of the myths we’ve seen repeated:

  • Substitute for weight loss—CoolSculpting is not a weight loss program, or a substitute for one.
  • Only for women—Women do appreciate the procedure for the cosmetic effects it can achieve, but there’s nothing about the treatment that’s specifically designed for women. Men can just as easily take advantage of the benefits CoolSculpting offers.
  • Permanent results—With good care, continued exercise, and healthy eating, your results can certainly last a long time. However, nothing’s guaranteed to last forever, including your CoolSculpting results, as remaining fat cells can get larger if you don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Immediate results—While the procedure itself is quick and easy, you won’t be seeing results as soon as you step out of the treatment room. Results generally take weeks, months, or additional procedures for the full benefits of CoolSculpting to show.

Who Can Benefit from CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting treatment is geared toward hard-to-lose deposits of fat—the areas that resist your heartened efforts at physical fitness and healthy eating. The ideal candidates for the procedure are people who are close to their target weight, enjoy good general health, and have fat deposits that measure at least an inch thick when pinched.

If you’re not sure that you fit the criteria, or consider yourself a few pounds short of the “close to target weight” status, talk to your doctor or medical professionals at Sona during your Greensboro CoolSculpting consultation.

People with certain conditions should avoid CoolSculpting. This includes individuals with a known history of skin or temperature sensitivities, pregnant women, and patients with the following conditions:

  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Cold agglutinin disease
  • Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria
  • Raynaud’s disease

Why CoolSculpting?

Comfort during treatment

Patients are able to enjoy a book, watch videos on their mobile devices, or even take a nap.

No hospital, no incision, no surgery

The non-invasive treatment is applied by Sona’s licensed health professionals in spa-like facilities.

No downtime

You can go right back to your office or resume your normal activities.

Natural body processes

CoolSculpting takes advantage of the body’s normal, naturally-occurring responses.

What Does the CoolSculpting Procedure Feel Like?

At first, CoolSculpting may at first experience intense cold, slight stinging, tingling, or minor aching as the cold applicator is applied. After five to 10 minutes, the sensation diminishes as your body becomes accustomed to the temperature and a numbing effect takes hold.

The treatment can last up to an hour per target area. Following the procedure, you may observe some firmness, bruising, temporary redness, swelling, tingling, or tenderness. Other side effects from treatment include itching, sensitivity, aching, and cramping.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

At Sona in Greensboro, CoolSculpting is used to whittle away unwanted fat deposits from many areas of the body.

Target These Areas with CoolSculpting:

  • Stomach
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Upper back
  • Lower buttocks (banana roll)
  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Chin
  • Inner and outer thighs

What to Expect from Your Sona Experience

When you come to Sona, you can look forward to expert care, provided by highly trained, medically licensed cosmetic professionals. We’re recognized as a top five CoolSculpting provider nationally and make sure that the care you receive is up to the highest standards. This is reflected in the fact that every Sona location is a CoolSculpting Certified Practice.

During your free CoolSculpting consultation, a trained provider will discuss your goals and recommend a treatment plan for optimal results. Before you even book your appointment, our knowledgeable and courteous staff will make sure that you are aware of the benefits CoolSculpting provides. During this personal assessment, you’ll go through all of the required steps of the treatment process.

When you arrive at Sona for your CoolSculpting appointment, a member of our staff will greet you and escort you to the treatment area. The treatment will begin with the application of the cooling mechanism on your skin. You should expect to feel an intense cold sensation at first. The feeling will begin to dissipate as your body adjusts to the temperature level. After five to 10 minutes, the cold numbing effect will take effect, further reducing any initial discomfort.

At this point, you should feel comfortable enough to enjoy a book, browse on your mobile device, or even take a refreshing nap. At the end of the session, a Sona nurse will massage the treated area, providing a little bit of warmth and encouraging blood flow. You may experience a slight tingling sensation from the massage.

Your CoolSculpting session can last between 45 and 60 minutes per treatment area, depending on the size of the area. For most patients, it takes two rounds of treatments to see your desired results. If you want several areas to be treated, multiple appointments may be necessary.

Be sure to discuss all of your treatment goals during your Greensboro CoolSculpting consultation. Also, don’t forget to return to Sona for a follow-up assessment, if you would like to further enhance your results.

CoolSculpting Recovery

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure. Unlike with liposuction, there are no surgical incisions of any kind. At the end of your treatment, you can resume your normal schedule. You are free to go back to your office or run errands.

You should not push it, of course. Don’t ignore any potential discomfort. If you feel a bit stiff, tender, or bruised, you may pass on the gym, or focus your workout on areas that did not receive treatment.

While CoolSculpting is not a surgical procedure, it can help you achieve your fat-reduction goals as well, or better, than liposuction surgery. You’ll also handle the after-treatment period better, because you won’t need to recover from incisions.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

Your CoolSculpting session in Greensboro can result in as much as 20%–25% reduction of unwanted fat in the targeted area of treatment. However, you won’t be seeing a dramatic difference immediately. You may be tempted to schedule another session a couple of weeks after your initial treatment. Reign in that impulse.

The full impact of a CoolSculpting procedure takes a little while to come through. You may begin seeing initial results after a few weeks. More likely, your full results won’t become evident for two, three, or even four months.

This is due to the process fat cells go through before they’re expelled from your body. The cells don’t die immediately. They first crystalize (freeze) and begin to break down. This causes the release of fat, which is then used by your body for energy. Cell remains eventually make their way to the liver and leave your body through natural processes.

Every person’s body handles the procedure differently. The speed with which crystallized fat cells break down varies from person to person.
