Dr. Leyda Bowes and her team at Bowes Dermatology, helped both Annette, a typically healthy woman, and Luis, a previous CoolSculpting® patient, fight stubborn fat in the COOLest way!
From the initial assessment to a real LIVE CoolSculpting® treatment, Dr. Leyda Bowes and her team at Bowes Dermatology gave us the inside scoop on what an actual CoolSculpting® treatment feels like, as well as answering some of your most frequently asked questions!
Who Is The Perfect CoolSculpting® Candidate?
Ah, the question EVERYONE is asking! It is important to remember that CoolSculpting® isn’t for everyone. CoolSculpting® is designed to treat pinch-able subcutaneous fat – fat that is just underneath the skin. According to Dr. Leyda Bowes, ideal candidates are “close to their ideal body image.” Although CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment, it does not aid in weight loss. Eating healthy and exercising is an important aspect of the treatment. Dr. Leyda Bowes noted that Annette was a good candidate for the treatment because she exercised regularly but still had some stubborn areas of concern.
“We would never do a procedure that we don’t believe in, on patients”
-Dr. Leyda Bowes
What Does A CoolSculpting® Treatment Feel Like?
Unlike many fat reduction treatments, CoolSculpting® is nonsurgical. Treatments are quick and easy! Depending on the customized treatment plan, patients can be in and out in as little as 35 minutes. Luis found his CoolSculpting® treatment to be “very comfortable.” Typically, patients can expect to feel a slight “cool” sensation but this feeling usually dissipates shortly after the CoolSculpting® treatment has begun. It’s not uncommon for patients to work on their laptop or even take a nap during their treatment!
Is CoolSculpting® Safe?
“Tried and trusted” is an understatement when it comes to CoolSculpting®. With more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, doctors everywhere stand behind CoolSculpting® as a safe and effective fat reduction treatment! CoolSculpting® works by safely delivering precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin and can reduce the fat in treated areas by up to 20 – 25%.
“The machine will stop if it ever senses that the conditions are not ideal for safe cooling. This prevents freezing of the skin, frostbite, and burns”
