What is CoolSculpting™?

CoolSculpting™ is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that is an excellent alternative to surgical liposuction. It uses the science of Cryolipolysis™ which selectively targets, freezes and kills fat cells as a way to significantly reduce them*. There is no damage to surrounding tissue such as skin, muscles or blood vessels making CoolSculpting™ a completely safe procedure for decreasing fatty deposits. There are no incisions or anesthesia needed so you can return to your normal activities right after the procedure is completed.

During the weeks following your procedure, your body naturally and safely disposes of the damaged fat cells reducing the treated area by up to 25%.

Call Seattle Aesthetics today to find out if CoolSculpting™ is right for you. We are located at the northern end of Belltown on the corner of Western Ave. and Denny.

Relax and Enjoy Some Downtime During Your Treatment!

What happens during my CoolSculpting™ treatment?

After assessing and marking the area to be treated, your personal CoolSculpting™ specialist will place a cool gel pad over the area to be treated. The CoolSculpting™ applicator will draw the fatty tissue into the applicator using gentle vacuum pressure. Once the treatment begins, you will feel a sense of cooling for the first five minutes as the fat cells are specifically targeted and cooled. For the remainder of the treatment, while the fat cells are being targeted and cooled, you will not feel much of anything other than a sense of gentle tugging of the fatty tissue in the applicator. The most common areas we treat are love handles, abdominal fat, inner thighs and “saddlebags”. Other areas can be addressed on an individual basis if needed.

The treatment time takes about an hour, during which you will be free to read, check your email, surf the net, or catch up on your favorite TV episodes. Some patients are so relaxed in our private rooms that they may even take a nap. Our goal is to make your CoolSculpting™ experience relaxing and enjoyable every time you visit Seattle Aesthetics.

How will I know if I’m a candidate for CoolSculpting™?

CoolSculpting™ is not right for everyone. At Seattle Aesthetics, we carefully screen and assess every patient to make sure that your unique tissue type will respond to the CoolSculpting™ procedure. Many other aesthetic clinics will “up-sell” you for more treatments than you actually need regardless of whether or not you are a good candidate. At Seattle Aesthetics, we are committed to providing every patient with an honest assessment. If your excess tissue will not benefit from a CoolSculpting™ procedure, we promise to tell you.

As a general guideline, you should be within about 30 pounds of your ideal body weight, and the bothersome area should be easy to “pinch and pull” away from the body. It should form (roughly) into the shape of a cube of butter when you compress it. If you are unsure, call our office or complete our Request a Consultation form to schedule your complimentary assessment.

What can I expect after my CoolSculpting™ procedure is finished?

Once the CoolSculpting™ applicator has been removed, you may feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation as the tissue returns to normal temperature. Some patients will experience redness, minor bruising, or numbing in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Because CoolSculpting™ is a completely non-invasive procedure, most patients resume their normal activities without needing even a Tylenol. All of our staff have had multiple CoolSculpting™ procedures done and can tell you more about their own personal experiences at the time of your appointment.

What happens to the fat cells?

Once the fat cells have been frozen during your CoolSculpting™ treatment, the body naturally and easily removes them. Your remaining fat cells however, can either increase in size (as seen with weight gain) or decrease in size (as seen with weight loss) depending on your diet and lifestyle choices but the cells that have been frozen, damaged and removed are gone. So, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and an optimal weight for your body type, long-term results should remain stable.

How much does the CoolSculpting™ procedure cost?

This is one of our most commonly asked questions. The CoolSculpting™ procedure is quite affordable when compared to other more invasive procedures such as surgical liposuction. The price will depend on the number of areas we treat. It can range from treating just 2 areas (love handles) to treating 10 or more areas. And this is entirely up to you and what your desired outcome is. We don’t quote prices online as we need to see you in person and do a full body assessment to give you specific pricing. It really does vary patient to patient. Our prices are competitive in the area and well worth the investment to give you the body you have always wanted!
