CoolSculpting is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared treatment that can rid up to 25% of targeted body fat – all without incisions, sutures, or the risk for serious complications. Better yet, with little to no downtime, CoolSculpting is truly a noninvasive procedure that can be fit into even the busiest person’s schedule. Although CoolSculpting can be right for almost everyone, a respected provider will need to determine if it is the perfect technique for your needs.
Keep in mind, all CoolSculpting providers are not the same. Not only do you need to find out if CoolSculpting is right for you, before moving forward, you also have to make sure you have chosen the best provider for the job. To get the conversation started, Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique has answered the five ‘must ask’ questions that should be reviewed during an initial CoolSculpting consultation.
1. Will I make a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a wonderfully versatile technique, offering a multitude of unique applicators that can treat fatty tissue on different areas of the body. The procedure can be successful for men and women of all skin types and ethnicities. It is not the right choice for those patients looking for a weight loss tool; a good candidate will be at their desired weight, struggling with isolated fat deposits. Additionally, prospective patients should have good skin elasticity, that can ‘snap back’ once the underlying fat is gone. If stretched, lax skin is present, a surgical lift may be recommended to excise the excess tissue.
2. What can I expect during my CoolSculpting treatment?
Each CoolSculpting treatment is performed in a private, comfortable Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique office. The practitioner will first position the applicator on the predetermined area. The innovative applicators then softly suction in the fatty tissue, then quickly bring the area down to a freezing temperature. There is no pain, as the area is numbed by the cold temperature. During your CoolSculpting session, you will be comfortable enough to talk on your phone, watch Netflix, or take a catnap. Treatments with CoolSculpting’s CoolAdvantage applicator take only 35 minutes. Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique also offers the perk of Dual Sculpting, or two CoolSculpting machines that can treat two areas during a single session.
3. Will there be any downtime after my CoolSculpting procedure?
CoolSculpting involves little to no downtime, meaning you can go right back to your normal day after a treatment session. While the treated area may be slightly swollen and red, it will not be uncomfortable. Temporary itching and numbness are also normal, but these are short-lived. As no anesthesia is used, there is no limitation on your post-treatment activities.
4. What are your qualifications as a CoolSculpting provider?
This is one of the most important questions you can ask during a consultation appointment. All of Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique’s providers have graduated from the CoolSculpting University in California. Here they received specialized training on all of the unique applicators, treatment areas, and body types. Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique has completed more than a thousand successful treatments, earning a place in the coveted, CoolSculpting Club 1000.
5. How much will my CoolSculpting treatment cost?
The cost of your individual procedure will vary according to the treatment area, and if you choose to bundle in any additional treatments. On average, CoolSculpting can range from $2,000 to $4,000. However, be wary of anyone who will quote you a price without an in-person evaluation; only during a one-on-one consultation can the exact cost of CoolSculpting be determined.
