While the result of any cosmetic corrective procedure is ultimately what attracts us, the cost of the procedure is typically the first question we think of even if it isn’t the first question we ask. Similar to other procedures such as Botox, peels, and dermal fillers, CoolSculpting is not cheap but because of the results possible with this procedure, you may consider Coolsculpting. Less involved and less expensive than liposuction, Coolsculpting may be the perfect option for you.
Keep in mind, cost may vary with your geographic location and the medical practice providing this procedure. The treatments and the costs listed below are typical, which will give you an idea of what to expect. These prices are per treatment. Be aware, you may need two treatments to achieve the desired result.
Health insurance plans do not cover CoolSculpting, which is unfortunate. Still, if you’ve been struggling to lose stubborn fat deposits and have exhausted every other avenue, you may want to work it in to your budget. The potential result of Coolsculpting may be well worth it.
What is Coosculpting?
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive, nonsurgical, FDA-cleared procedure that can help you lose stubborn areas of fat such as muffin top or a double chin even after weight loss. Developed at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Coolsculpting is based on the idea that cold can selectively affect fat. The scientist of the Wellman Center developed this innovative cooling process that safely and effectively targets fat cells beneath the skin with minimal discomfort. Once treated, the fat cells crystallize and then die. With time, your body will process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. Coolsculpting does not damage the skin or surrounding tissue. The result will be a more sculpted you.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAT REDUCTION AND WEIGHT LOSS
Weight loss and fat reduction are often thought to be the same thing, but they really aren’t. With weight loss, fat cells get smaller but there are just as many of them. If you gain weight, fat cells get larger. The CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas.
Fat cells that no longer exist can’t get bigger and treated fat cells are gone for good. With or without weight loss, you’ll be slimmer, more sculpted and you will feel and look better.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
Even though fat distribution is different in men and women, Coolsculpting is effective on both. It is intended for people who are close to their goal weight and can “pinch just an inch or two”. You should not expect instant results.
It typically takes 8 -12 weeks for full results and can sometimes take two treatments.
Make sure the medical professional developing your treatment plan is aware of any and all health issues. Some health issues eliminate you as a candidate, such as Raynaud’s Syndrome, which is a circulatory disorder. You should also follow a healthy diet and exercise plan to maintain your goal weight.
