Pre Treatment Guide For Coolsculpting®

What Is Coolsculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is the most popular non-invasive, body-sculpting procedure available on the market today. The treatment uses fat-freezing technology to permanently destroy fat cells that congregate in particularly stubborn areas and help shape the body. CoolSculpting® may be used on the abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, under the chin and above the knees.

This FDA approved process is viewed as relatively painless with only minimal discomfort felt when the technician first places the applicator on the treated area. The procedure is specifically designed to sculpt your body without surgery and generate fast, visible results. If you are considering CoolSculpting®, the best way to get started and find out more is to schedule a CoolSculpting® consultation, assess whether you are a candidate for the procedure and receive a customized treatment plan for your needs.

How To Prepare for Coolsculpting® Treatment

  • Wear comfortable clothing that easily allows access to target areas
  • Up to 5 days before treatment avoid supplements or medication that thins your blood (for example, aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E) to reduce the chance of bruising

What To Expect During Your Coolsculpting Treatment

Typically, CoolSculpting® takes 35-75 minutes per treatment area. Procedure times vary depending on the parts of the body you are treating, and the number of areas included in the treatment. When the applicator is first applied, you may experience tugging, pinching, tingling, stinging and intense cold sensations until your target area becomes numb. Once the area is sufficiently numbed and the treatment cycle is complete, your technician will massage the area to break up congealed fat so that the body may better absorb and eliminate fat cells. While there may be some bruising in the treated area, patients typically experience little-to-no down time and generally return to work (or play) immediately following their appointment.

I had the Signature Facial and the Dermaplaning Treatment at Elan. This was by far the best facial that I have ever had! It was so relaxing and my skin was absolutely radiant after my treatment.

I also had dermaplaning which I had never done before. I have sensitive skin so I was a little nervous at first, but the esthetician calmed my nerves and the results were magical!

Anna Dickerson

I had a fantastic experience at Elan. I got (my first) microdermabrasion facial & was super impressed by the communicative approach, aftercare advice, &, most importantly, results.

You can tell how much care & attention is put towards the client’s experience which is refreshing.
