For years, CoolSculpting has been a buzz word in the body contouring and plastic surgery world for both men and women. Maybe you’ve seen the fat freezing procedure being performed on daytime talk shows or even your local news? Maybe you’ve read on social media or in popular magazines where celebrities and athletes are endorsing their personal experience with CoolSculpting? When this new fat-freezing machine came out, Dr. Schantz did his due diligence in vetting the technology to make sure it lived up to his high standards of effectiveness.
While it is true that fads come and go, the CoolSculpting procedure has only grown in popularity, due to the increasingly positive results and a very high patient satisfaction rating. CoolSculpting has been performed over 6 million times and the technology has continued to evolve to meet our standards of excellence, proving to be more than a fad. Here’s why we decided to offer CoolSculpting to our patients:
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals. The cost typically ranges between $2,000-$4,000 for their personalized treatment plan, depending on the number of areas treated.
Create a customized treatment plan, in person, with your CoolBluLex representative, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. CoolBluLex is pleased to provide the option of flexible financing for patients through CareCredit and Green Sky Financial. Call the offices of CoolBluLex today for more information about available financing methods.
The staff at CoolBluLex will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during the visit. The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. CoolBluLex is pleased to offer DualSculpting, allowing two areas to be treated at once, saving you even more time!
In the United States, the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (banana roll), and upper arm. Please contact CoolBluLex to discuss any other problem areas not mentioned.
Absolutely! At CoolBluLex, we regularly treat visible fat bulges under the chin and contour of the neck. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as easy and tolerable as using the CoolSculpting procedure in other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With CoolSculpting treatment for a double chin, patients see results after just 1 to 2 visits. And with no surgery and little to no downtime.
Once we complete the procedure and the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body permanently.
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some slight pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many of our patients at CoolBluLex enjoy reading, watching videos, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment. After the treatment, you may feel some slight tingling as the area is massaged for 2 to 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointments.
The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. Give us a call at CoolBluLex today, to find out if you’re a good candidate!
During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment (double chin area). These effects are temporary and generally resolve within just days. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. Contact CoolBluLex to find out if CoolSculpting is right for you.
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your initial treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. See our CoolBluLex before & after photos for reference.
No supplements are required after your CoolSculpting treatment at CoolBluLex. It’s not a diet and exercise program, so you won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits in order for the procedure to produce results. However, at CoolBluLex, we have noticed that many of our patients feel significantly more motivated to take care of themselves following CoolSculpting treatment. Getting a second lease on your body has proven time and time again to be an excellent motivator for people to want to invoke positive lifestyle changes.
As mentioned previously, here at CoolBluLex, we’ve noticed that our patients have a very high proclivity to want to invoke positive changes in their lifestyle, following the post-procedure motivation that they get from CoolSculpting. *However, if you do gain weight, the weight gain will be much more evenly distributed in your body, as opposed to just coming back into the treated areas.
