CoolSculpting® Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an advanced noninvasive treatment for eliminating fat cells from targeted areas on the body, which can be difficult to target and lose even after you develop a healthy diet and lifestyle. Certain pockets of fat can persist beyond all your independent fat loss attempts, but CoolSculpting Elite at Afzal Clinics can reduce these areas.

During a CoolSculpting treatment, the device’s applicators sit against your skin, delivering cold temperatures to the fat cells in deeper layers. This freezes the fat cells, which damages them beyond repair. Over the course of one to three months after each CoolSculpting session, your lymphatic system naturally removes those cells as waste.

Each patient is different, and the number of treatments you need with CoolSculpting varies based on a number of factors. The team at Afzal Clinics determines the approximate number of sessions you can expect to have.

What are the results of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting Elite has two handpieces, so it can treat more than one area of fat at once. These treatments eliminate between 20-25% of your body fat for good, and you can customize the procedure to target your areas of choice. 

You may choose to treat body fat on your:

  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Bra area

You may not have believed nonsurgical fat removal was possible, but CoolSculpting makes it so. However, it’s important to note that the treatment won’t lead to any significant weight loss. 

Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting may offer an impressive set of abilities and stunningly natural results, but it isn’t the best option for everyone looking to reduce body fat. Afzal Clinics offers liposuction as an alternative treatment that has a longer recovery but does not take as long to produce a reduction in fat cells.

Neither liposuction nor CoolSculpting is an option for individuals experiencing weight challenges who have not yet approached their goal weights through a healthy diet and exercise. 

You must also be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after treatment to be able to maintain the results of liposuction and CoolSculpting. Both treatments offer permanent results as long as you can maintain your body weight.
