Am I A Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

Your provider will review your desired outcome and medical history to determine whether you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting. They will then examine you to evaluate areas of your body containing stubborn fat pockets. 

Before the procedure, you should be within 15-20 pounds of your ideal weight to ensure optimal, long-lasting results. CoolSculpting can reduce stubborn fat in men and women in the following areas:

  • Love handles
  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Hips
  • Back 
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Under the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Under the chin
  • Jawline

Sanctuary Cosmetic Center also offers Kybella, an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that reduces fat underneath your chin without surgery or downtime. Your provider might recommend Kybella in conjunction with CoolSculpting.

We use the latest fat-reducing technology, including PrecisionTx™, Profound, and Dual Sculpt, to enhance skin tightening and fat loss. Sanctuary Cosmetic Center’s board-certified surgeons, trained at CoolSculpting University, continue to refresh their skills and training regularly.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

There are many benefits to CoolSculpting over traditional body sculpting surgery or diet and exercise. Some of the most notable include:

  • No downtime
  • Customizability
  • Pain-free treatment
  • Long-lasting results

The CoolSculpting Procedure

Before your CoolSculping treatment at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center, your provider will take photographs and measurements. The CoolSculpting room contains large screens with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video and a comfortable, convenient space. 

Your provider will apply a CoolSculpting applicator to targeted areas of your body while you relax in a standing, seated, or reclined position. The applicator delivers cooling effects but isn’t painful. Most CoolSculpting treatments take about 35 minutes, but sessions can last up to 60 minutes, depending on the areas treated.

If your treatment lasts longer because as you treat multiple body parts, Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers refreshments and lunch from nearby high-end restaurants.

CoolSculpting Results

After CoolSculpting, your provider will remove the applicator and manually massage the treatment area for several minutes to break down crystallized fat cells beneath the skin. There’s no downtime after CoolSculpting, so you can resume normal everyday activities.

Over the next few weeks, your body will clear destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system. You can experience visible slimming in as few as 4-6 weeks. Your provider might recommend multiple treatment sessions or more than one cosmetic procedure to optimize your results.
