You may be researching whether or not CoolSculpting® is the right procedure to achieve your goals. We’re here to guide you every step of the way, especially if you live in or near Dallas (or are willing to make a trip to DFW for your treatment).
Does CoolSculpting® work on the Arms?
CoolSculpting® is ideal for treating the unique contour of the upper arms. It works by delivering suction and precise cooling to the area with customized applicators (also called handpieces). CoolSculpting® plans are customized based on your unique anatomy and you can learn more about CoolSculpting® for arms in this in-depth guide, including what to expect, how many treatments are needed and why CoolSculpting® is the preferred way to reduce fat easily and safely… or by scheduling a [free] virtual consultation with our team of CoolSculpting® specialists!
CoolSculpting® works by administering controlled cooling – and since plans are customized, it’s can be the perfect way to address unwanted fat in the arm and armpit areas.
What to expect during CoolSculpting® Upper Arm Treatment…
The first step in a CoolSculpting® journey is to attend a free virtual consultation with a dedicated CoolSculpting® specialist to discuss applicator sizes and handpieces, expectations and results.
CoolSculpting® treatments are customized based on your unique anatomy and each client’s arms [and goals] are different. The average length of an upper arm ranges from 4.5″ to 9″, depending on anatomical build and height. Depending on the length of the arm, the equipment used during treatment will vary!
Why does this matter? Why does the length of the arm come into play with a CoolSculpting® treatment?
Because in order to achieve a natural looking result with CoolSculpting® on Arms, you’ll need to ensure full coverage of the fat-pad. We have multiple sizes of handpieces and we may need 1 handpiece or 3 handpieces to achieve the coverage you’re looking for on each arm.
With each handpiece that’s applied, there’s a cost associated. The industry term for “handpiece being applied” is called cycle – and you buy and pay for CoolSculpting® by the cycle. You can learn more about the cost of CoolSculpting® Dallas here.
On treatment day… you’ll arrive & have your before photos taken. Then, the treatment markings will be mapped on using precise measurements and a unique technique, which our CoolSculpting® dedicated providers have mastered.
Then, a protective gelpad will be place on the skin, the suction applicator placed, and controlled cooling will be administered while you sit back and relax for a 35-minute “cycle”. If multiple cycles are needed, the same process will be repeated. You can check out what happens during a CoolSculpting® upper arm treatment [and see one happen live] right here.
How many treatments are needed for CoolSculpting® Arms?
No matter the size of the handpiece used, or the number of handpieces used during your treatment day – you should expect a 20-25% reduction [on average] in the fat layer treated with each round of treatment. If you’re looking for a subtle difference, you may only need 1 session. Most clients have 2 to 3 rounds of treatment prior to achieving their long-term goals with CoolSculpting®.
Part of the journey with your CoolSculpting® consultation is to visualize the outcomes from a CoolSculpting® Upper Arm treatment…
… That means looking at before and after photos of other clients with a similar anatomy, similar demographics, and similar results to what you’re looking for. At your free virtual consultation, we’ll pull before and after photos of other clients we personally have treated here at Element Body Lab, so you’re not only confident that CoolSculpting® works on upper arms, but also that we’re the best providers to fulfill your CoolSculpting® treatment.
You’ll notice a difference with each and every session. Many clients purchase just one round of treatment at a time (between 2-6 cycles to achieve full coverage of both arms) to space out their full treatment costs, and to take the CoolSculpting® journey a little slower. We’re a no-pressure business and will give you ALL of the information you need to make the most educated decision around moving forward with CoolSculpting® Upper Arms.
Why is CoolSculpting® the preferred treatment for reducing fat in the arms?
CoolSculpting® received an FDA clearance in 2018 for the upper arm and since, has become the safest and best way to treat unwanted fat in the upper arm and armpit fat areas. We prefer CoolSculpting® treatment for reducing fat in the upper arms because of the superior results you see, the lack of scars [when comparing to a surgical procedure], and the safety aspects behind CoolSculpting®.
When we talk about “superior results” we mean natural looking, even results. Unlike other procedures, which can leave you lumpy and uneven, CoolSculpting® administers controlled cooling and with the right provider, can provide AMAZING results that are long-lasting, and look incredibly natural… all without having to go under the knife or live with scars.
CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared, safe, and proven technology to address unwanted subcutaneous fat in many areas of the body, but our personal favorite place to treat… upper arms, love handles, and CHINS.
