About half of the adults across the country are actively trying to lose weight. It’s a common goal because weight loss can lead you to more confidence and a healthy life!
Sometimes, those who are trying to reach these goals need a little bit of help with the last steps of the transformation. And that’s where procedures like CoolSculpting come in to get you to the final results you’re looking for and melt away the excess fat your body is holding onto!
But before you begin any procedure, it’s important to ask your doctor all the questions about CoolSculpting so you know what you’re getting into. Here are the top seven things you should check on!
1. Are You Trained and Certified?
While CoolSculpting is a relatively easy procedure with minimal potential for danger, it’s still a medical procedure and those always come with some risks. This is why it’s so important to only get CoolSculpting done by someone who has the proper training and certifications.
This is the best way to ensure you get the results you want and none of the potential negative side effects.
Before booking your appointments, make sure to ask when and where the provider received their education in CoolSculpting. It’s also helpful to know if they’ve done any continuing educational programs. Experience plays a big role in a provider’s ability to perform properly, so that’s great information to have as well.
2. How Does CoolSculpting Work?
There are always new techniques and procedures becoming available to the public, it can be really hard to keep up and understand what’s going to happen. Luckily, it’s your provider’s job to keep all of those details straight for you.
Before agreeing to a procedure, make sure to get a thorough explanation of the whole CoolSculpting procedure.
As you are given the explanation it’s a good idea to ask every question you think of, even if you think it might be silly. The more you know and understand, the better the whole process will go. After your consultation, there should only be confidence that this is the right choice for your body!
3. What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
During this consultation, your provider should go over a list of all the benefits you’ll experience from CoolSculpting. This will help you decide if the procedure will actually address the specific issues you’re experiencing or not.
While your provider can’t give you exacts of what you’ll experience after CoolSculpting, they’ll be able to give you a general idea of what their patients have gone through. This procedure is highly successful with very few potential side effects, so they’ll likely have a lot of good examples.
There are more benefits than just a slimming effect and those should be taken into account in any decision making.
4. Am I a Good Candidate?
The whole CoolSculpting process works great for those patients who fit the right demographic but not everyone will be that right fit. It’s important to make sure you’re a good candidate for the awesome results this procedure can bring before beginning.
CoolSculpting is designed to eliminate excess fat in patients, especially in the inner thighs, arms, and stomach. But it won’t work to remove high amounts of fat. This procedure is designed to help those who have already worked to lose a large amount get to their ideal weight, mainly focused on the last few pounds.
Your provider will be able to assess your overall health to see if the procedure will work for you or not before beginning.
5. How Long Does CoolSculpting Take?
No one has unlimited time to spend at appointments, no matter how amazing the results are going to be. It’s a good idea to have a clear picture of what the time requirement will be before beginning, as the whole process only works if you complete the full treatment.
In many cases, one thirty to sixty-minute appointment will be enough to get you the results you’re looking for. But it completely depends on the area and how much fat there is. Your provider should be able to give you an accurate estimate of the number and length of treatment sessions.
6. What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Even though results can’t be completely guaranteed, any experienced provider will be able to assess your current situation and tell you what you can expect after treatment.
The best way to see if the possible results are what you’re looking for is to look at before and after photos from actual clients of your provider. These will help you envision what your body can look like and how much fat can actually be removed through this process.
7. How Do I Prepare for CoolSculpting?
Once you’ve committed to getting CoolSculpting done, you want to do everything you can to get the best results possible. The best way to do that is to prepare yourself and your body for the procedure.
Before your first appointment, check with your provider to see what their pre-procedure protocol is.
It’s also a good idea to ask about recovery times and what you can do to ensure the best recovery. No one wants to see their results fade away and the fat comes back, so preventative measures should be taken to avoid that if at all possible. There’s a lot you can do to continue on your health journey and your provider will be able to give you the best advice for that as well.
