Coolsculpting specialist in Albuquerque, NM, answers common questions about the treatment.

A slim, toned body is a sign of health and fitness in any season, but small pockets of stubborn fat can keep people feeling like they need to cover up throughout the year. With summer quickly approaching, more patients are asking how CoolSculpting at our Albuquerque medical spa can help them look and feel their best this swimsuit season.

New technology provides an opportunity for experienced doctors to educate and connect with patients, and there are often some important details that all patients should know. Here are my answers to 4 of the most commonly asked CoolSculpting questions:

Who is a candidate?

CoolSculpting is an ideal solution for women and men who want to reduce fat in targeted areas of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. This popular liposuction alternative can also be used on smaller areas of the body, such as the double chin.

Although CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool, it is a great solution for people who can’t get the results they desire through only diet and exercise. An in-person consultation with a qualified provider is the best way to determine whether or not a particular patient is a candidate.

What happens to fat cells?

Created by ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc., CoolSculpting targets and freezes fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue. Following the quick treatment, the body processes and eliminates only the targeted fat cells. Patients will gradually see a more toned appearance on the areas treated.

Why should a person choose CoolSculpting over alternatives?

A simple reason why people choose CoolSculpting over certain alternatives is that it works really well for qualified candidates. Unwanted fat can be extremely frustrating for people who want to feel confident in their bodies, and CoolSculpting is an easy solution that is effective and within reach.

Another noteworthy reason for choosing CoolSculpting is that it is non-surgical. Without the need for needles, incisions, or anesthesia, patients can get back to their daily activities immediately following the treatment session.

Where is the best place to undergo CoolSculpting?

One of the most important steps to any safe and successful cosmetic treatment is choosing a qualified provider who has a knowledgeable and ethical staff. I strongly recommend seeking out a medical spa that is overseen by an experienced doctor who is board-certified in aesthetic medicine to ensure you receive the best care.

Patients often choose our medical spa in Albuquerque because of this heightened level of service and trust, but we also see people who want to take advantage of the complementary treatments we offer and time-saving solutions such as DualSculpting™. The perfect answer for patients with limited time, DualSculpting uses 2 CoolSculpting machines to treat 2 areas of the body at once.
