Are you frustrated by stubborn pockets of fat that have been around for as long as you can remember? Have you tried to scale back your diet and ramp up your exercise without successfully sculpting your dream body? If so, CoolSculpting at Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, TN may be appropriate for you. Today, we’re taking a closer look at this non-invasive treatment, including how often you can be treated and how long the results last.
How Often Can You Get CoolSculpting?
If treating the same area more than once, it is highly advisable to wait two months between CoolSculpting sessions. Generally, it takes between six and eight weeks for the final results of a treatment session to become apparent. Therefore, if you wait two months between treating the same area, you can tell whether a follow-up appointment is necessary. However, you can get one fat removal treatment per week if you are targeting different areas.
How Long Will the Results of My Treatment Last?
The results of this treatment may last a lifetime. This is because the cryolipolysis device freezes a lot of the fat cells in the treatment area, causing them to die. Once they die, they are flushed out by the body, and the body can’t grow any new fat cells to replace them.
Therefore, you can feel completely confident that the fat removal results of the treatment are permanent. However, your contours may change after your treatment if you eat and drink too much. For the best chance to enjoy lifelong results, you should make a concerted effort to keep your weight fairly consistent. You may notice changes in your contours if you gain or lose more than 10 pounds of fat.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
The only way to know for sure whether you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting is to come in for an initial consultation. To qualify for this fat removal treatment, there can’t be too much fat in the areas of concern, and there has to be enough fat for the device to be effective. Therefore, we need to identify your pain points and evaluate them.
To be considered an ideal candidate for this treatment, your BMI should fall within the range of 18.5 to 24.9. In other words, you should be at a healthy weight for your height to be considered ideal for this treatment. However, it is possible to qualify for this treatment if your BMI falls within the range of 25 to 29.9. If your BMI is over 29.9, you are obese and will have too much excess fat for this treatment to be effective.
What Else Will Happen During My Initial Consultation?
If we determine that this treatment is appropriate for you, we will schedule your first appointment and give you a better idea of what to expect during the treatment process. We will also advise you on how to prepare for your treatment and how to take care of yourself once your treatment is complete. Also, we will determine how many areas of concern we are treating per session. Then, we’ll let you know how many sessions you may need.
What Other Treatments Can Help Me Improve My Self-Confidence?
During your initial consultation, we strongly recommend that you advise us on all the aesthetic concerns you have. Sometimes, people seek this treatment because they want to look younger. Often, removing excess fat from the abdomen, upper arms, and neck can help people look more youthful. If you have other aging concerns besides stubborn fat, let us know. You may benefit from Botox, an injectable muscle relaxant that has been used safely for decades.
Botox is a special type of anti-aging treatment because it can address signs of aging that can’t be addressed with dermal fillers. Specifically, it can be used to erase dynamic lines, folds, and wrinkles. This is in stark contrast to dermal fillers which can only be used to add volume to injection sites. Botox injections only take a few minutes to administer, and you can start to see your wrinkles disappearing in just two to four days. Then, the final results show in a week.
How Long Do the Results of Botox Last?
The results of Botox can last anywhere from two to six months typically. However, most of the time, the results of this treatment last between a dozen and 16 weeks. The better you take care of your skin after your treatment, the longer you can expect your ideal results to last. There is also a better chance that your results will last longer if you receive a larger dose of medication during your treatment or if your cosmetic concerns are mild or moderate in nature.
