Understanding CoolSculpting with Alyson at Goshorn Aesthetics
Are you struggling to get rid of stubborn fat in certain areas of your body? Have you tried diet and exercise but still can't seem to achieve your desired body shape?
If so, you may be interested in learning more about CoolSculpting, a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that has been FDA approved.
My name is Alyson and I specialize in CoolSculpting at Goshorn Aesthetics, working alongside Dr. Goshorn. CoolSculpting works by freezing stubborn subcutaneous fat, which is the fat that we can pinch on our bodies. Unfortunately, we cannot treat visceral fat, which is the fat that surrounds our organs.
"CoolSculpting works by freezing stubborn subcutaneous fat."
Each CoolSculpting treatment can remove about 20-25% of the fat in an area, which is roughly equivalent to the size of one finger. The treatment itself takes anywhere from 35 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes, depending on the area being treated. While some common side effects of the treatment include coldness, numbness, pressure or pain, bruising, swelling, and numbness that usually lasts about 7-10 days, less common side effects include prolonged nerve pain and paradoxical hyperplasia, where the fat actually grows in the area instead of shrinking or dying.
We can treat any area of the body that has a pinchable bulge, including chins, bellies, flanks, bra fat, arms, thighs, and outer thighs above the knee.
During a consultation, we go over the patient's goals and determine the best approach to achieve them.
In some cases, we can treat the area on the same day, but most of the time, we schedule a separate treatment day.
We discuss what to expect during the recovery period, when to see the results (which usually occur 4-6 weeks after the first treatment), and when to schedule the second treatment (usually about four weeks after the first one).
Our team at Goshorn Aesthetics is committed to providing safe and effective CoolSculpting treatments to help our patients achieve their desired body shape.
