CoolSculpting in Portland, OR
Good Candidates for CoolSculpting
You are a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you are not obese, but have unwanted fat that doesn’t go away despite good diet and exercise habits. This fat may include noticeable bulges of fat on certain parts of the body that you wish to eliminate.
The Price of CoolSculpting
The cost of CoolSculpting procedures varies based on the number of areas you wish to treat and the number of sessions required in order to accomplish the desired effect. To create a customized plan for your individual body-sculpting goals, contact Dr. Bohley at (503) 897-8999 for a one-on-one consultation.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
The CoolSculpting procedure is accomplished in a series of sessions, the length and number of which is decided based on the number of areas being treated and a person’s specific goals.
During a CoolSculpting session, an applicator using a gentle, vacuum-like applicator is applied to the surface of the skin at the desired area, drawing the skin between two cooling panels in order to crystallize, or freeze, the fat cells in that area. The patient may feel a brief period of tugging or pinching as well as intense cold as this occurs. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they die and are eliminated by the body naturally.
A CoolSculpting session involves no discomfort, allowing the person to perform everyday tasks like reading or checking email during the session. The results of a CoolSculpting treatment can be seen as quickly as three weeks after the treatment, though the full effect of the procedure will be seen after two months.
Recovery After CoolSculpting
Because the CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive and painless, there is no downtime afterwards. Some people may experience temporary numbness, redness, minor bruising or mild pain after a CoolSculpting session, though most people typically return to normal activities immediately.
After having the CoolSculpting procedure, you are not required to follow any specific diet or exercise plan, however many people are naturally motivated to adopt healthier eating and exercise habits once they’ve seen their spectacular new body shape. If you do gain weight after having the CoolSculpting procedure, the weight will be distributed throughout your body, and not just in the areas treated by the procedure.
