CoolSculpting Tips: Before You Receive the Treatment

CoolSculpting is an incredible treatment. It’s not only a way to reduce unwanted areas of fat on your body, but it also does it without making you undergo invasive surgery. For these very reasons, this treatment is quickly growing as one of the most popular non-invasive fat removal procedures in not only the United States but also the rest of the world.

If you’re interested in CoolSculpting, and you live in Philadelphia, PA, or any of the surrounding areas, please continue reading. In this blog, we’ve outlined a few tips that you should follow before you receive the treatment. Here they are:

  • Find out if you would be a good candidate – Although it’s used to reduce and remove unwanted fat, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. The best candidates for this treatment are the ones who are already close to their ideal weight. Contact us for a free consultation if you’re not sure whether you would be a good candidate or not.
  • Determine how many treatments you’ll need – Different people need a different number of procedures when it comes to CoolSculpting. While some may only need one treatment because they’re happy with a lower percent of fat reduction, others might need three or more treatments. Tell your provider your expectations to determine how many procedures you’ll need.
  • Prepare for some discomfort – Although this procedure is non-invasive, you’ll still need to prepare for some discomfort, just in case. You might feel fine during the procedure, but some patients do experience minor swelling, tenderness, numbness, redness, or bruising for the next few days or weeks. It’s a good idea to prepare in case you’re one of the ones who feels side effects.
  • Bring something that will keep you busy – The treatment can last up to one-two hours, which will seem like a long time since you’re just sitting or lying there. Our advice is to bring something like a book, magazine, or tablet computer to keep yourself entertained.
