What To Expect From CoolSculpting
During your first visit, you’ll meet with one of Prescription Skin Cares CoolSculpture clinicians. This face-to-face consultation with one of our specialists is essential. This way we can take a good look at the areas you’d like to reduce the fat and discuss the treatment practice directly with you.
It also lets us develop a treatment plan for your specific needs. We consider every patient as an individual and therefore create a specific treatment plan that accounts for your wants and needs. We will also provide our opinions and recommendations based on our initial examination of your body. We take into account all factors. Because of course, everybody is different, and every type of body is different.
When the treatment does begin our specialist will see to it that you’re as comfortable as possible. Applying the gel pads to the pre-discussed treatment areas, each treatment session will last around 1 hour depending on how many areas are being treated.
Once your treatment is done, you can go straight back to your normal routine. The treatment is painless and will leave you feeling perfectly fine. As it’s non-surgical and non-invasive, CoolSculpting is a safe method for fat removal.

Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss
Some people have it in their heads that losing weight means you’ve lost fat. When in fact, the two can be completely different. The difference is an important distinction for anyone to make when looking to reduce the amount of fat in their body.
People generally want most of their weight loss to come from fat. Individuals who are focussed on the amount of weight may end up losing more muscle than fat if they’re not careful with their approach.
Losing Fat, Not Muscle
Losing weight doesn’t always mean a healthier you. You may just end up looking like a smaller version of your previous self, not a more toned version which is what most people look for when losing weight. Maintaining or building muscle during any weight loss method is crucial. An individual that accounts for both fat loss and muscle amount is likely to have a healthier physique.
CoolSculpting technology focuses only on the fat. Fat is receptive to the cold, while muscles and surrounding nerves have a stronger tolerance. CoolSculpting only freezes the fat, leaving muscle untouched. This procedure results in fat reduction and is a healthier form of weight loss than alternatives. So patients will normally see the results in their waistline and not on the scales.
Measuring Body Fat and Weight Loss
For anybody looking to measure the success of fat reduction methods such as CoolSculpting, they need to focus on the body fat percentage. Measuring your body fat percentage will not only give you a good indicator of the amount of fat you’ve lost or gained, but it will also provide clarity about the amount of muscle you’ve gained, which is just as important.
Some people may notice that their fat amount hasn’t changed, but they weigh more. This is a signal of muscle gain, which is what you want during any fat reduction process as muscle is used to replace fat.
Always keep in mind that the scales shouldn’t be the primary indicator for the amount of lost fat in your body.
