Continue reading as we answer these questions and share everything you need to know about CoolSculpting in McLean, Virginia.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the No. 1 non-invasive body contouring treatment in Tysons VA.

CoolSculpting applies a patented cooling technology to stubborn fat bulges in order to freeze and destroy fat cells.

What Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Involve?

A typical CoolSculpting treatment begins with photographs and measurements.

Then, a CoolSculpting applicator is selected based on the size, shape, and pinchability of the targeted area.

With the patient standing, seated, or reclined, the applicator is applied and begins delivering cooling effects. Most treatments can be completed in 35 minutes.

Once the treatment cycle is over, the applicator is removed, and the area is manually massaged for several minutes. This helps breakdown crystallized fat cells beneath the skin.

How Quickly Can Patients See Results?

CoolSculpting McLean

CoolSculpting results usually become noticeable in four-to-six weeks. However, it can take up to three months for patients to achieve final slimming and sculpting.

How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

As long as patients maintain a relatively stable weight, CoolSculpting results are permanent.

That’s because the treatment destroys and eliminates unwanted fat cells, instead of simply shrinking them.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate?

The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is within 15-20 pounds of their ideal weight and struggles with pinchable areas of diet and exercise resistant fat.

What Are the Risks?

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and has been evaluated in over 75 published papers, with over 5000 study patients.

While the procedure is extremely safe, there are some possible risks that patients should consider.

These include:

  • Plugging or tugging sensation during application
  • Burning or stinging
  • Redness, swelling, bruising, and numbness. These issues typically resolve on their own in several days to weeks.
  • Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. A very rare side effect in which the treatment area becomes enlarged. PAH occurs in less than .05 percent of patients.
