Am I Candidate For Coolsculpting?

Have you heard about CoolSculpting, the non-surgical fat reduction procedure that freezes away unwanted fat? Although CoolSculpting is an excellent body contouring treatment, it’s not the right option for everyone. So if you’re interested in the procedure you may be wondering – Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting.

How CoolSculpting works

The CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the targeted areas and slowly cools the fat cells until they crystallize and die. The cells are then naturally expelled by the body. CoolSculpting can be used to reduce excess fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, and submental area (below the chin).

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is designed to target isolated pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. So if you are at or near your ideal weight, but have a few stubborn areas of fat, you are probably a good candidate for CoolSculpting. However, there are some other variables to consider.

Candidates for CoolSculpting should be in good health. Although CoolSculpting does not involve surgery, it is a significant treatment. Therefore, individuals considering the procedure should be in good health so that side-effects are minimized.

CoolSculpting is ideal for men and women that are not contemplating surgery, and are therefore not looking for drastic body changes.

Some results may be seen within 3 weeks of treatment but optimal results can take 2-3 months. After CoolSculpting, patients should commit to a lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise, in order to maintain results.

CoolSculpting is a very effective treatment for the right candidate with appropriate expectations.
