One of the most popular and innovative ways to get rid of stubborn fat is with CoolSculpting. Unlike liposuction which is a surgical procedure, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to target your fat cells and freeze them. Once the fat cells are frozen, they will slough off and your body will excrete them in your urine. As one of the most popular procedures that Dr. York Yates offers, you may be wondering whether or not CoolSculpting is right for you. One of the best ways (other than with a consultation) to determine if CoolSculpting is good for you is to know a little bit more about the procedure itself. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from your CoolSculpting session.
What Does it Feel Like?
Just like with any new procedure, our patients want to know what CoolSculpting actually feels like. Remember that the goal of CoolSculpting is to freeze your fat so that it falls off so you can expect it to feel a little bit cold. During about the first 6-8 minutes of CoolSculpting is when most of our patients experience some discomfort and irritation but for the rest of the session (which is about 25-30 minutes longer) you shouldn’t feel uncomfortable.
It’s Pretty Relaxing
After those first 6-8 minutes have warm off, you shouldn’t really notice any sort of discomfort for the remainder of your session which will give you plenty of time to sit back and relax. If you have work to do on your tablet or if you just want to catch up on social media, then feel free to lay back and enjoy yourself throughout the remainder of your treatment.
One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting is that it’s non-invasive which means that each session is fairly fast and easy. If you want to learn more about CoolSculpting, makes sure to schedule a consultation at our Layton office today and call us at 801.525.8741.
