Coolsculpting is an excellent choice to enhance your overall appearance without going under the needle. This non-invasive procedure has benefited many people over the years and now is one of the most recommended methods in the world of cosmetic surgery.

If a Coolsculpting procedure is on your mind,  it is vital to understand what you should be doing and what you need to avoid, as it helps you maximize your results and enjoy the overall experience.

Let’s look at a few important things to keep in mind and take into consideration before you make up your mind about going for a Coolsculpting procedure –

  1. Make Sure You Are Eligible for The Procedure

Coolsculpting is not an alternative to losing weight. If you have an extreme amount of fat and think that this procedure will help you be slimmer, it is not for you. 

On the other hand, if you have considerable weight and fat areas that don’t respond to diet or exercise, Coolsculpting can help you eliminate these stubborn fatty tissues. 

Your doctor will examine you to measure the fat pockets and make sure you are a fitting candidate on your visit to the clinic.

If you have medical conditions like cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, you are not suitable for a CoolSculpting procedure.

  1. Have Realistic Expectations

When you first visit your doctor, do not hesitate to ask questions and be open about your expectation with this procedure. Explain to your doctor what you are trying to achieve here; this will help your doctor prepare accordingly, like the number of treatments required to achieve your desired goals.

Don’t think of it as a quick method to lose weight. Every treatment is expected to reduce 20-25 % fat of the operated area. If you are not happy with that, you can repeat the process every two months or more as the final results take up to 90 days to be prominently visible.

  1. Look for the Right Physician For You

Even though Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure, you must look for a board-certified doctor’s clinic or board-certified plastic surgeon trained and experienced. Pacifica Center For Plastic Surgery in Camarillo, CA, is a renowned and reliable place if you are looking for a Coolsculpting expert.

  1. It is a Painless Procedure So Don’t Worry About It

As said earlier, it is a non-invasive procedure, so there are next to no chances of pain during the entire treatment. During the beginning of the process, you may feel sensations like cold or tingling, but it will slowly go away as the area becomes numb. There will no need for anesthesia during the process as numbing is included in the treatment itself. 

  1. Be Patient With The Results

You may get impatient to see the results, and it is understandable, but you will hardly see any immediate effect. Instead, you may notice some swelling in the treated area. 

Coolsculpting is a good test of patience as it uses cryolipolysis to ze your fat cells, due to which they die and excrete by the body’s lymphatic system. The whole process requires a lot of time, but it is effective and safe more than other invasive procedures. You will be able to see the results in 2 to 3 months from the treatment.
