Getting rid of resilient pockets of fat can be difficult, even with the most diligent exercise regimens and diets. However, CoolSculpting has proven its efficacy when it comes to eliminating difficult pockets of fat, allowing for clothes to fit better and to make exercise regimens more effective. CoolSculpting is great for removing the excess fat that might spill over when buttoning pants or fastening a bra, but it’s important to note that CoolSculpting only works when applied correctly.

CoolSculpting’s Effectiveness

While CoolSculpting is an effective method to reduce fat, it’s not meant to be a weight loss solution. CoolSculpting is designed to make only minor improvements. Clients are assessed for their age, skin quality and how thick their skin is to determine if they’re qualified for the procedure and whether they will see positive results.1

CoolSculpting works best on fatty areas of the body; areas of the body with little or thin layers of fat shouldn’t receive CoolSculpting as it will have little effect on those areas, even after several rounds of the procedure. Skin that is too thick can prevent CoolSculpting paddles from accessing the layers of fat underneath, nullifying beneficial effects.

It often takes several rounds of CoolSculpting to achieve visible results, but experts state patients will experience up to a 25% reduction of fat in a treatment area. It’s important to note that the procedure is not designed to shed pounds. Even eliminating a significant number of fat cells adds up to very little when you step on the scale.

The results can be long-lasting but only if patients continue to take steps to control their weight going forward, such as controlling nutrition and maintaining a steady workout regimen. Results generally become visible after four weeks, and skin begins to shrink and smooth in the treated area approximately 12 weeks post-procedure. The procedure is non-invasive and safe but complications can occur such as numbed sensations.

Receiving guaranteed results depends on which medical professional you choose to perform your CoolSculpting treatment. Dr. Michael Workman, M.D. can provide you with the results you want with the care and attention to detail required in CoolSculpting treatments.

Dr. Workman will apply a controlled cooling wand to the area of fat you want to treat. Fat cells beneath the skin are essentially frozen to death without any harm to the surrounding skin, tissue or muscles.
