Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

If you are looking for a non-surgical procedure to reduce fat, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is not, however, to be used for weight loss methods.

Patients can opt for treatment as a means to slim and contour stubborn areas of fat on various body regions, such as their abdomen, arms, and thighs. Men and women in Arlington Heights and Chicago, who have not seen results with dieting and exercising, may want to consider CoolSculpting® for their body image desires.

What Should I Expect After my CoolSculpting® Procedure?

After a CoolSculpting® appointment patients can leave the office. During the next few weeks, patients’ fat cells will flush out of the body. Patients typically notice slimmer areas three weeks after their appointment and full results at three months following treatment. Maintaining these results depends on each individual, their fat cell gain, fat cell loss and other lifestyle factors.
