With the end of 2019 right around the corner, many people are thinking about their new year’s resolutions. If your goal for 2020 is to tone up your body, consider taking advantage of CoolSculpting at my Guilford practice near New Haven, CT. This treatment can help you break through fitness plateaus, finally conquer stubborn fat deposits, and see the shape you’ve been working toward in the mirror. Think of it as your secret weapon for jump-starting your fitness resolution.
Not sure what to expect for your first treatment? There’s good news: CoolSculpting is nonsurgical and doesn’t require any anesthesia, needles, or recovery time. It only takes about an hour per session to freeze away your unwanted fat so you can start your year on the right foot.
Here’s a closer look at what you’ll experience during your first appointment.
The process begins with a private consultation with your provider. During this consultation, you’ll have a one-on-one conversation to help identify your goals, desired results, and lingering questions. Feel free to ask anything you are curious or uncertain about.
As a result of this conversation, your provider might recommend other treatments that could pair well with your CoolSculpting session or that may be more effective for your body sculpting goals.
To start your treatment, your provider will place the device’s applicator onto your targeted area. The device will then suction the area up into the applicator and deliver powerful controlled cooling. While you may feel a strong cold sensation at first, the area will eventually go numb, and you’ll be able to relax comfortably .
As your targeted area cools down, the fat cells will freeze and die in a process called cryolipolysis. Over the next couple of months, your body will naturally eliminate these destroyed cells, leaving behind a slimmer and more sculpted silhouette.
At my practice, we offer a full menu of specialized applicators designed to treat certain areas, including the midsection, thighs, flanks, and neck (double chin). (Learn more about popular treatment areas in our previous blog post.)
As the treatment stops and your targeted area starts to warm back up, you may experience mild redness and a tingling or “thawing” feeling, though this should subside within the next couple of days. There is no downtime required, so you’ll be free to return to work or other daily activities immediately after your appointment.
Your results will gradually develop over the next couple of months. You may start to see a difference after 4 weeks, though it can take up to 4 months for full results to take shape. As you start to work toward your New Year’s resolution, these gradual results may accelerate your fitness goals and boost your motivation when you see your progress in the mirror.
