There is no preparation needed for the CoolSculpting treatment.
No, anesthesia will not be administered during the CoolScuplting procedure, nor does a patient require pain medications or relaxants.
CoolSculpting is not painful. CoolSculpting can be a bit uncomfortable for the first couple of minutes until the skin is numbed (similar to icing an area of the body).
Results can be seen in as little as 1 month to 3 months after treatment. Depending on the amount of fat desired to be eliminated, some patients may need multiple treatments to the same area. This will be discussed during your consultation.
No; there is no scarring because there are no incisions made in the skin.
No medication is necessary after CoolSculpting.
The price varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Call our friendly staff to set up a consultation.
The patient has multiple financing options. For example, the patient can pay for the surgery on credit card, and make monthly payments back to their credit card. Additionally, CareCredit is a financing company specific for cosmetic surgery; patients can apply for CareCredit, and there are multiple options for CareCredit. Sometimes, patients opt to make payments directly to the office. This is a prepayment plan where a patient would pay until he or she pays the entire balance for the surgery; then, they would have their surgery.
There is no downtime with the CoolSculpting treatment! You may immediately resume all normal activities. You may experience minor bruising, swelling, and numbness to the treatment area following the procedure which typically resolve within a week or two.
We do have a post operative recovery facility that we refer our patients to in Orange County, CA and Los Angeles, CA. In these situations, they will be picked up by the post operative care facility from our recovery room and brought to the recovery center where they are recovered overnight, and then brought back the next day for their follow up appointment.
