CoolSculpting® is the leading non-invasive procedure for contouring the body and eliminating stubborn fat. Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD offers this advanced treatment to help patients achieve noticeable, long-lasting results. We welcome patients from Maryville, Powell, Knoxville, TN, and surrounding areas.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the only body contouring procedure that uses the power of controlled freezing energy to visibly reduce stubborn fat cells. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved, non-invasive, and completely safe. The CoolSculpting® device uses controlled bursts of freezing energy to directly target fat cells beneath the deepest skin layers. This freezes and destroys the targeted fat cells, allowing natural processes to eliminate them from the body. The CoolSculpting® process is incredibly precise, treating unwanted fat without harming the surrounding tissue. It can be used for fat in many areas of the body, including the abdomen, legs, back, and arms. CoolSculpting® can even be used for chin contouring to eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every CoolSculpting® procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables like your unique cosmetic goals and the number of treatment sessions required. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit us in-office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer financing to help make our treatments more affordable.
What is CoolSculpting® Treatment Like?
Your CoolSculpting® treatment will depend on your specific treatment needs, which will determine the length of your treatment and the location of the CoolSculpting® applicators. Before the treatment, a cooling gel will be applied to the treatment area. Then, the CoolSculpting® device will be placed on the gel and will begin to emit cooling energy. This may cause an initial cold or pinching sensation, but the treatment area quickly becomes numb and you can relax for the duration of the treatment. During your CoolSculpting® treatment, you can read a book, use your phone, or even take a nap!
Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting®?
There’s no downtime associated with the CoolSculpting® treatment. You will be able to return to work and all other normal activities—including exercise—immediately after your treatment. Side effects may include slight bruising, swelling, sensitivity, and redness. These effects are minimal, and typically fade within a day or two.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® treatment permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area. As a result, patients can enjoy long-lasting and even permanent results from treatment. However, it can take several weeks for the full results of treatment to become visible. Most patients notice results within one month, with more noticeable results becoming visible over the following months as additional treatments are received. It is important to note that patients must maintain healthy diet and exercise habits following their treatment in order to maintain their results.
