You’ve taken the first step towards freezing away that stubborn fat that likes to linger no matter what you do. But with your consultation appointment approaching, you’re probably wondering what to expect and if all consultation appointments are the same when it comes to CoolSculpting treatments.
Here is a step by step breakdown for anxious would-be CoolSculpting patients. Our new consult video will also help you know what your consultation appointment will be like and what should be included in your consultation with a CoolSculpting expert.
Meeting With A CoolSculpting Professional
Your CoolSculpting consultation is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about the treatment process, and get answers to your specific questions that are all tailored to your body. Treatment plans all vary depending on the patient and their specific expectations of how they want their body to look and feel following CoolSculpting.
This consultation appointment is complimentary, allowing you to gain a great deal of insight without having to make a commitment.
CoolSculpting Consultation Steps at Laser Aesthetic Center
At your consultation, we will sit with you to better understand your specific goals and together we will create a treatment plan to help you towards achieving those goals. We will discuss exactly how many cycles we think you will need and how long it will take for you to reach that wow factor you’re after.
You will receive a thorough explanation of how CoolSculpting works, including how the treatment is administered, the common and rare side effects and the sort of results you can expect from the outlined treatment plan. All of your questions will be answered during your free consultation, so feel free to bring a list of questions to ask with you to your consultation appointment.
The area that you want to be treated will be properly assessed during your consultation, including manually feeling the thickness of the fat. The CoolSculpting templates are applied to the area to plan the treatment, including making marks on the skin with a washable marker to show where the templates would go.
Discussing Your Fat Reduction Goals
Because of the way fat freezing works, you will need to possess certain characteristics in order to be a good candidate for CoolSculpting including:
- Being within 30 pounds of your target weight. CoolSculpting isn’t designed to help you lose weight, only fat. You will need to be close to a healthy weight in order to see optimal results.
- Eating healthy and exercising regularly. It’s important that you are on an exercise regimen so that the frozen fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body, rather than lingering.
- Have noticeable bulges of fatty tissue. We need to be able to pull the fat away from the body slightly to cool the area for the CoolSculpting handpiece to be able to clamp tissue.
- Looking for a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. CoolSculpting offers more gentle, but comparable results to patients with problem fat, without the significant downtime.
Combining Treatment Options For Optimal Results
At Laser Aesthetic Center, we believe that not every patient fits into a single category. Every body type is different, and we believe that taking the unique approach of mixing treatments and designing a custom treatment plan gives our patients the best transformational results without having to make compromises.
It is not uncommon for patients interested in CoolSculpting to be guided toward another treatment option that is better suited for the problem they are trying to address or to have a combination of treatments recommended.
