Are you looking to refresh your appearance in the new year? While you might have made a New Year’s resolution to work hard in the gym, or other resolutions that promote you looking and feeling your best, there are ways to help you achieve your goals to their maximum potential. Aesthetic enhancements for concerns such as targeted fat loss, spider veins, hair removal and more can help enhance both your appearance and your confidence within.
When it comes to fat loss, it can be frustrating to have stubborn fat in specific areas of the body. This is why in addition to CoolTone, ClearV, and ForeverBare, Vively Body Science is proud to offer a revolutionary, non-surgical fat reduction procedure called CoolSculpting.
Vively Body Science is a premier medical spa in Minnesota owned and operated by two physicians who have more than forty years of combined clinical medical experience. We pride ourselves in investing not only in the aesthetics of our patients but also each patient’s personal wellbeing.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses technology to freeze away unwanted fat (adipose) cells. CoolSculpting creates a sculpted look in targeted areas of the body using safe and comfortable applicators. Patients can see a 20 to 25% fat reduction in the treatment area after the procedure.
CoolSculpting reduces adipose tissue, which is the type of tissue that stores energy in the form of fat. When there is an excess of this tissue, it can be a cause for concern over your health and wellbeing.
The Benefits of Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
Authentic, long-lasting results
You can maintain CoolSculpting results with a healthy and active lifestyle. This isn’t a treatment that requires being done over and over again in the same area. With commitment, you can maintain your newly slimmed body areas!
Specific, targeted fat loss
We know exercise can result in fat loss, but for most of us, this means losing fat from the entire body a little at a time. Instead, you have the power to choose specific areas for fat reduction using CoolSculpting. Fat in certain areas may stick around no matter how much we try to reduce it. With CoolSculpting, you decide which specific areas you want to treat.
Increased confidence and wellbeing
We all have certain things about ourselves that we dwell on, and for many people it is stubborn, unwanted fat. There is no shame in wanting to feel good about yourself. When you feel good on the outside, it can make you feel good on the inside too. You deserve to feel good in your body, and CoolSculpting can help.
The Process of Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
Consultation and treatment planning
One of our team of specialists will meet with you individually to discuss your unique goals and examine the treatment areas of your body. Based on this exam, your medical history, and other contributing factors, your specialist will determine if CoolSculpting is the best fat reduction treatment for you. If so, we will create a personalized treatment plan with you that reflects your goals.
CoolSculpting non-surgical treatment steps
At the start of your treatment, one of our physicians or our CoolSculpting master will mark the targeted treatment areas. This allows for precise placement of the specialized applicators. Your skin will be treated with a protective wipe and then a gel pad is applied. The applicator is then applied to the targeted area and a vacuum suction will draw in the skin and adipose tissue. At this point the technician will apply controlled cooling to the treatment area.
During this time you may feel sensations of pulling, intense cold, mild pinching, tingling, stinging, or cramping. These sensations are normal and typically alleviate after 10 minutes, at which point the treatment area becomes numb.
Throughout the session you can pass the time by reading, using a phone or tablet, or resting, and afterward you can return to your daily routine. Some people may want to shower afterward, but most get back to their normal activities immediately.
After-treatment care and recovery
After your treatment, the targeted areas may be tender, but there are no specific restrictions to follow. The CoolSculpting results will not be immediate; they take 3 to 4 months to become fully visible. You can contact Vively for follow up to monitor progress or to ask any questions. To make sure that your results are long lasting, we can consult with you to discuss diet and lifestyle habits to ensure you are happy with your results for the long term.
Dual CoolSculpting / DualSculpting
If applicator positioning allows, we can utilize two CoolSculpting machines at the same time for an even quicker treatment. If you are working on areas that come in two, such as the back of both thighs or both flanks, DualSculpting is a great way to maximize your treatment time.
CoolTone as a paired treatment with CoolSculpting
CoolTone is an excellent treatment to pair with CoolSculpting. While individual needs may vary, patients wanting to look both slimmer and more toned or stronger are great candidates to get both treatments. Oftentimes a treatment plan includes CoolSculpting first, then CoolTone to strengthen and shape muscle areas beneath.
Individuals looking for strengthened muscles alone and no fat reduction are best suited for the CoolTone treatment by itself. Schedule a consultation to see if you’re a good candidate for either of these treatments.
Do you want to combine treatments? Great! We will create a treatment-to-transformation package just for you, and the best part is that you can work through your package at your own pace.
Non-surgical fat reduction cost
Cost is heavily dependent on each person and their individual goals. Specifically, CoolSculpting treatment cost is dependent on the size of the treatment area, as well as the amount of fat the patient is looking to reduce. Our specialists will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. We can discuss and keep cost in mind while we create your treatment plan.
Some may require two applicators for a single treatment area, whereas others may require eight or ten. Alternatively, one individual may only have a single treatment area, where another may want three or four areas addressed. For more information on CoolSculpting treatment cost, feel free to schedule a consultation with our expert staff.
How to Find the Best CoolSculpting Provider
When it comes to your body, you want to see someone who is highly qualified to perform CoolSculpting; it is both a science and an art. There are a few ways you can ensure your provider is top notch.
Beware of steep discounts and deals
We all love a good bargain, but when the bargain is for something that could affect your body, it’s important to research it with a critical lens. While average or higher prices for a service do not always indicate a superior quality of the service, a shockingly low price can certainly be a red flag and warrant consideration as to why the price is so low.
We’re not saying that deals are something to be avoided, but if you find a CoolSculpting cost that seems too good to be true, it just might be. It would be helpful to look further into the reputation and reviews of a practice that is offering these steep discounts before deciding to receive treatment from them.
Find out the experience level of your provider
If information on your provider’s experience level isn’t readily available on their website, be sure to call and ask. Some other questions to consider might be:
- Are they newly trained?
- How many patients have they performed CoolSculpting on?
- How long have they been performing CoolSculpting?
- Have they received CoolSculpting themselves?
Schedule a consultation and meet with the provider
One of the best ways to decide if your CoolSculpting provider is well qualified is to meet with them in person and see the facility for yourself. Prepare any questions you have before your appointment.
At your consultation for fat reduction with CoolSculpting, be sure to ask the provider your questions and discuss any concerns you have. Is your provider able to answer and provide helpful information for your concerns? Is the practice a safe, clean environment? A good practice will be forthcoming with this information and take the time to discuss these topics with you before you book a treatment.
