Do you want to slim your silhouette without invasive surgery? CoolSculpting has emerged as one of the best modern technologies to remove fat from parts of the body such as the inner and outer thighs, abdomen, and flanks. Under the direction of Dr. Ryan Krch N.M.D., Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE offers this effective treatment for patients in Phoenix, AZ.
We understand that persistent pockets of fat can be frustrating, especially if they don’t respond to traditional diet and exercise. One of the best ways for patients to eliminate unwanted fat is with CoolSculpting. We invite you to reach out to our med spa to schedule a CoolSculpting consultation and learn more about our life-changing procedures.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting does not follow conventional methods of fat removal. Unlike liposuction, where recovery takes several weeks or months, CoolSculpting is noninvasive and does not require any downtime. So how does CoolSculpting work? This treatment uses the process of cryolipolysis, or the permanent destruction of fat cells using cold temperatures. The CoolSculpting fat-freezing technology delivers controlled cooling to target fat beneath the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue completely unharmed. The affected cells are then easily eliminated by the body.
When you arrive for your consultation at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE, Dr. Krch will listen to your concerns and conduct an assessment to see if you are a candidate for treatment. Dr. Krch will also give you realistic expectations about the process and your potential CoolSculpting results. While CoolSculpting can be used on larger areas of the body such as the abdomen and flanks, it also works well on smaller areas like the arms or chin. For your convenience, we can typically start the treatment immediately after the consultation.
What about the side effects?
To begin eliminating fat cells, the CoolSculpting handpiece is applied to the selected area while controlled cooling targets and freezes fat cells. Like with most cosmetic procedures, patients can expect some minor side effects from CoolSculpting. Individuals often feel a cooling sensation that usually fades as the area becomes numb. The handpiece also uses suction to pull the fat cells for a more effective procedure, which means patients may feel mild tugging and pinching. Following the CoolSculpting treatment, there may be temporary redness, mild achiness or minor swelling that will resolve within a few weeks. Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, patients can return to their activities as normal after their session.
Are CoolSculpting results worth it?
The great news is that once the fat cells leave, they’re gone for good. CoolSculpting results can be seen in as little as 2 – 3 weeks, with the most optimal results showing about 90 days after the initial treatment. At your consultation, Dr. Krch will determine how many treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results. Some patients only require one session, while others need additional treatments based on the volume of the area being targeted.
Patients should know that while CoolSculpting results are permanent, the remaining fat cells may still grow if there is significant gain weight in the future. Patients who are within 5 – 10 pounds of their ideal weight at the time of their treatment are usually successful in keeping the weight off. Many individuals report that their outstanding results motivate them to follow a proper diet and exercise regimen to maintain their slimmer appearance.
How much is CoolSculpting?
Since there is no surgery involved with CoolSculpting, patients do not need to pay for anesthesia or other common hospital fees. This makes CoolSculpting a more affordable option when compared to surgical methods of fat removal. So how much is CoolSculpting? The total cost is generally based on the area being treated and how many sessions are required. The smaller the areas, the lower the cost. Since aesthetic treatments are not normally covered by insurance, you can ask a friendly member of our team about convenient payment plans and financing options in Phoenix, AZ. The staff at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE can also discuss your cosmetic goals and choose the best treatment plan for your budget.
