CoolSculpting is the ideal non-invasive fat reduction and body sculpting procedure for individuals who have trouble getting rid of the pockets of stubborn fat on their bodies. CoolSculpting is a patented, non-surgical fat reduction technology that freezes and eliminates the unwanted pockets of fat to contour your body. The procedure doesn’t involve stitches, incisions, surgeries, injections, or downtime.

The promise of natural results without surgeries or injections has made CoolSculpting in Yakima one of the most popular body contouring treatments. If you’re considering your fat reduction options, please schedule a consultation with the exceptional providers at Synergy MedAesthetics, Yakima, to learn more about CoolSculpting.

What are the most popular targeted areas for CoolSculpting?

  • Submental fat, i.e., double chin
  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Flanks or love handles
  • Upper arms
  • Bra and back fat
  • Lower back fat
  • Banana rolls below the buttocks
  • Inner thighs

Who are the ideal candidates for CoolSculpting?

  • Patients with specific pockets of stubborn fat.
  • Patients with a normal BMI of less than 25.
  • Patients who have been unable to remove stubborn fat pockets through traditional weight loss methods, like exercise and diets.
  • Patients committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.
  • Patients who don’t expect sudden weight changes in the near future.
  • Patients without a history of medical conditions that preclude them from the procedure (to be determined by the provider).

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is based on the science of cryolipolysis, i.e., the breakdown of your fat cells using cold temperatures. The CoolSculpting technology essentially freezes and kills the unwanted fat cells in targeted regions of your body, such as the abdomen, thighs, etc. In the weeks and months after the treatment, your body metabolizes the fat cells, expelling them from your body, making you look slimmer and more contoured.

Can CoolSculpting be used for weight loss?

CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure — not a weight loss procedure. The treatment is meant for patients with a normal BMI, i.e., less than 25. Patients who are overweight or obese might not be suitable candidates for CoolSculpting in Yakima. Patients with a higher BMI should pursue traditional means of weight loss, such as dieting or regular exercise, or bariatric surgery, before considering CoolSculpting.

There’s a big difference between fat reduction through CoolSculpting and weight loss. However, to grasp that difference, you must understand the relationship between fat cells and weight changes in your body.

Everyone has a specific number of fat cells in their bodies — this number usually remains constant throughout your adult life. When you lose or gain weight, your body doesn’t lose or gain new fat cells — instead, the existing fat cells contract or expand. Body contouring methods can only remove a limited number of fat cells from targeted regions to achieve a more proportional distribution of fat cells.

How can I prepare for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting doesn’t involve much preparation. However, as mentioned earlier, you should lead a healthy lifestyle and be close to your ideal body weight because this isn’t a weight loss procedure. You should also avoid anti-inflammatories, like aspirin and other blood-thinning medications, because they increase the risk of bruising.

What happens during the CoolSculpting procedure?

Your procedure for CoolSculpting in Yakima will start with a general consultation wherein the provider will review your medical history, discuss your goals, and examine the target areas. The CoolSculpting device has applicators with vacuum-like nozzles. The provider will place the applicators over the target areas to deliver controlled cooling. The applicator will be glided over the treatment areas — you might experience a pulling and pinching sensation when this happens.

After the treatment, the provider will gently massage the treatment areas to break down the frozen tissues. The massage might cause a little discomfort, but it won’t be painful. Most patients say the treatment feels funny and strange, but none complain about pain. The entire procedure takes 1 to 3 hours — you can spend that time reading a book, taking a nap, watching TV, or listening to music. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

When will I see the results?

CoolSculpting results appear gradually as your body absorbs and eliminates the fat cells. You might start seeing the results in two to three months, with continued improvements for up to six months. You might even need additional sessions to optimize the results. Your provider will let you know when and if you need additional CoolSculpting treatments.
