Today on the blog we’re talking about RESULTS. Not everyone sees the same CoolSculpting results, and not everyone has the right kind of fat to be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. You’ve probably noticed the *results and experiences vary* disclaimer on every CoolSculpting website you’ve ever come across, so we’re talking about it. Let’s dive in…
What results should you expect from CoolSculpting?
Everyone is different when it comes to what to expect from the CoolSculpting experience. There are so many factors contributing to this question. Our best advice is to come in for a free consultation with Dr. Phillip Dauwe, our medical director, so we can get specific about your anatomy, your medical history and what’s the best option for you. When it comes to body contouring, you’ll want some expert advice, including that of a physician. The consultation is focused on the following things: 1) We make sure you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting; 2) We ensure you have the right treatment plan to meet your expectations; 3) We make sure it’s the safest treatment for you; and 4) We make sure you understand what to expect as far as results, risks and side effects.
Speaking generally… CoolSculpting results vary – but you should expect about 20-25% reduction of the fat in the treated area. The results seen from the research behind CoolSculpting were on animal studies, and they stand the test of time. They’re true within our practice, and they’re backed up by over 100 peer reviewed research papers. The results in the research show an average reduction of “20-25% on a bell-curve” which means that some people respond a little less, some respond a little more, but most fall within that range. We believe in the CoolSculpting technology & we believe in our highly trained CoolSculpting dedicated providers.
Non-responders do exist, but it’s rare. More often, there’s a lack of education on how to appropriate place the CoolSculpting handpieces to ensure maximum contact with the cooling panel. The CoolSculpting machine is just a tool – and it’s used by a provider who needs skill to deliver on their promises.
Why do results and experiences vary so much?
We believe that results and experiences vary so dramatically from CoolSculpting depending on the provider you choose. We know the technology works because CoolSculpting has been around for a while – and people wouldn’t continue to purchase something that didn’t work. There’s been over 8-million treatments performed worldwide – that’s a lot of endorsement in a technology. But expectations are everything – and you need to understand that your unique anatomy (and your medical history) will make a big difference in the treatment recommendation you’ll receive.
If you’re active and healthy, sweating often and eating right – you’re likely to have better CoolSculpting results. That’s because the technology relies on your lymphatic system to flush out the treated fat (the fat comes out through urine, sweat, & bowel movements). If you’re inactive and looking for weight loss, CoolSculpting probably isn’t the right solution, but it depends on your goals. If you’re starting a diet and exercise program and wanting to freeze your chin fat to push you in the right direction, go for it.
Results from CoolSculpting have to do with so many factors, and we can’t stress the importance of a consultation enough. That’s why we offer free initial consultations with Dallas clients, to ensure you get the advice you need from the experts, and you have the best experience possible. No matter where you go, we want to help. Obviously, we want your business, but more importantly we want you to love CoolSculpting.
What happens if I don’t see any results?
This is a question you should always ask in a consultation for CoolSculpting. (You should also read as many reviews as you can – because CoolSculpting reviews mean something!) Nothing in life is guaranteed, and this treatment isn’t guaranteed to work. We mentioned the bell-curve results and don’t shy away from the fact that no 1 product can be a magic solution for everything. That in mind, your investment in CoolSculpting should be protected – you’re paying for results, and you should get them.
If you’re not seeing results from CoolSculpting, the first question is: did you take before & after photos? It’s hard to see the subtle changes when you look at your body every day. This is the oldest trick in the book when we hear “I don’t know if CoolSculpting worked.” Often, people suffer from what we like to call “aesthetic amnesia”. You know, where you forget what you looked like 3 months ago.
If you haven’t taken before and after photos, that’s where to start. Hopefully that will solve the mystery of where your results are. If you have taken photos and you still don’t see a difference – then talk to your provider. It’s an open conversation and you’re in it together. Our philosophy is we aren’t happy if you aren’t happy because your results are our reputation.
Your Results = Our Reputation
