CoolSculpting at our Atlanta med spa is one of our most popular procedures for many reasons. First, it works when performed on the right patients. Second, there’s no downtime following the procedure. To get the most out of this groundbreaking, nonsurgical fat reduction treatment, however, we recommend you do 3 things before scheduling your first CoolSculpting appointment.
Here they are:
1. Lose weight if you’re 10 pounds or more above your ideal weight.
Some patients believe CoolSculpting is a weight-loss procedure. That’s not true. It’s a targeted fat reduction treatment for removing stubborn fat bulges that remain even for people who exercise and eat a healthy diet. It can tone the flanks or a small stomach pooch, but CoolSculpting won’t take 10 pounds off of your abdomen.
2. Expect to have multiple treatments.
CoolSculpting results after a single treatment vary from patient to patient. Even though most patients see some differences after the initial procedure, other patients may need 2 or 3 treatments to get the desired results. Part of your preparation should be to save enough money to pay for multiple treatments. We also offer financing through CareCredit®, a company that specializes in setting up payment programs for elective health care services.
3. Prepare a post-treatment plan.
CoolSculpting treatments often motivate patients to remain active and to continue living a healthy lifestyle. Creating an exercise and diet plan — if you don’t already have one — is the best way to maintain your CoolSculpting results.
