Am I a Candidate For CoolSculpting?

For patients in San Mateo, Palo Alto and Burlingame, CoolSculpting has been shown to dramatically reduce stubborn fat without going under the knife and with no downtime. However, you can determine if you’re a candidate for the procedure by asking these questions.

1. How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Unlike many cosmetic procedures, CoolSculpting at LuminaSkin in San Mateo is completely non-invasive. This eliminates the risk of infection and helps your body lose fat in stubborn areas of the body. It involves the freezing of fat cells, which causes the death of these fat cells. As a result, the waste products are broken down and eliminated from the body through the natural processes of excretion and urination.

2. What Areas of My Body Need to Be Reshaped?

CoolSculpting is designed for application to areas of the body that tend to be the most stubborn when trying to lose weight. This includes the inner and outer thighs, the chin, the abdomen and the flank (“muffin top” or “love handles”).

3. What Is Your Goal Weight and Size?

CoolSculpting does not eliminate all fat regardless of amount. As a result, you should be within 30 pounds of your goal weight. This maximizes the efficiency of the CoolSculpting procedure by giving the penetrating wavelengths of the laser an optimum depth to reach fat cells that have not gone away with exercise and a healthy diet?

4. Do You Want a Non-Invasive Solution to Stubborn Fat?

You have the right to lose weight without painful cosmetic procedures and extensive recovery lengths. If you have been looking for a proven solution to lose stubborn fat that is non-invasive and non-surgical, then CoolSculpting may be a good choice for you.

5. Have You Had Previous Cosmetic Procedure to Lose Weight?

Previous cosmetic procedures do not threaten the safety or effectiveness of the CoolSculpting procedure. Furthermore, some cosmetic procedures may not have helped to completely reshape these stubborn areas. Therefore, CoolSculpting can be a final step in helping to reshape areas of the body after recovery from virtually any procedure.

6. How Much Time Do You Have for the CoolSculpting Procedure?

Each CoolSculpting application requires one hour of your time, but subsequent sessions may be needed to help you achieve final results.

7. How Quickly Do You Need to See Results?

With diet and exercise, it can feel like you have to wait months to see results. Yet, many CoolSculpting patients in San Mateo notice changes in as little as three weeks (but up to 6 months), making this procedure an excellent choice when you want to slim down for your own personal goals or a special event. Moreover, three weeks may be much shorter than the time required to schedule, undergo and recover from an invasive, surgical procedure.
