If you’re in search of effective ways of fat reduction and want to opt in for the number one body sculpting technology available, CoolSculpting Elite, you may be curious about how long it takes to recover from a CoolSculpting treatment, and that’s understandable! We all have busy lives, and can’t afford to be down and out while recovering, and that’s one of the countless reasons CoolSculpting Elite at Sculptology is amazing – there’s actually little to no downtime! You can likely get back to normal routine the same day as your treatment while your body works its magic and gets rid of those fat cells!
What is CoolSculpting Elite?
First things first – what is CoolSculpting Elite? CoolSculpting Elite is a body contouring technology developed by a team of doctors and scientists over a decade ago that harnesses the science of fat-freezing, or cryolipolysis. Previously, it was well known that kids who ate popsicles frequently often got dimples in their cheeks, a phenomenon known as “popsicle panniculitis.” So in their research, they actually found that freezing temperatures actually kill fat cells, leaving other body tissue such as nerve, skin, and muscle cells unharmed. The team targeted the flank (those “love handles”) in successful clinical studies, and earned CoolSculpting’s first FDA-clearance in 2010. Now, CoolSculpting Elite has a total of nine clearances from the FDA, which means nearly any part of the body can be frozen!
With controlled application of CoolSculpting Elite equipment by Sculptology’s expertly trained professionals, the fat cells in your areas of frustration are targeted, causing those unwanted cells to freeze and crystallize, which your body will then naturally eliminate in as little as 4 weeks, causing about a 20% fat reduction! We like to think of it as *magic* but we know it’s actually based on science!
Recovery Time After CoolSculpting Elite
So, you know how it works and how well it works, but what about recovery time following a fat-freezing session? Fair question! Most of our clients are active, healthy men and women, and it’s understandable that no one wants a long recovery time when there is life to be enjoyed! One of the best things about CoolSculpting Elite is that there’s actually little to no downtime! Since it’s non-invasive and non-surgical, there’s no need for anesthesia, no cutting into the skin, no needles, etc.
Here’s what you can expect when you come into Sculptology to target your stubborn areas of fat with CoolSculpting Elite. For most men and women, a CoolSculpting Elite session is like coming in for a day of pampering at the spa and we do our best to make our two beautiful locations as inviting and relaxing as possible. A session can be completed in as few as 35 minutes (that’s a lunch break!), and every client experiences different sensations. A controlled applicator will be placed on the area you want to target, and as the applicator adheres to the body, there is slight sucking sensation, followed by the signature cooling effect. You may experience brief sensations of tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling or cramping; however, these sensations subside quickly as the area becomes numb. If you are treating more than one area, it will obviously take longer, but we also have multiple applicators that can work on multiple areas of the body at the same time. Then, your Sculptology technician will massage the treated area following the procedure to reduce any side effects and increase the fat freezing process.
Following your session, you may have mild pain or discomfort, but there’s no real downtime. Some people report itching and swelling, but that can depend on what area of the body was treated; the most vulnerable area typically being the abdomen. In fact, many actually benefit from immediate light exercise following treatment! How COOL is that!?
