CoolSculpting is quickly becoming the “Botox” of fat reduction. Chances are, you’ve seen promotions for it all around Indy — at laser hair removal and massage spots all over the city. And perhaps you’ve even secretly considered trying it yourself. It’s not a one-and-done miracle for trimming down. But for those uncomfortable in their own skin with diet- and exercise-resistant fat, it’s a plausible option. If you are considering CoolSculpting in Indy, there are some things to consider, including whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure, and why it pays to choose a highly experienced medical professional.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting is a procedure that freezes and permanently removes stubborn fat. Called the liposuction alternative by celebrities, CoolSculpting is safe, non-surgical and FDA-cleared. CoolSculpting selectively freezes fat cells in targeted areas of the body. Frozen fat cells die and are gradually eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. The result is a steady reduction in the thickness of the body’s fat layer. Each cycle permanently removes 20 to 25 percent of the fat layer. This leaves patients looking slimmer and more toned.
The Ideal Candidate
CoolSculpting removes fat that is non-responsive to diet and exercise. Popular areas include the tummy, thighs and hips. Potential patients first need to understand that the procedure does not result in weight loss. Instead, it freezes the treated fat cells and then eliminates them from your body. After your procedure, it’s always a good idea to continue to eat right and exercise to stay at a healthy weight.
The Cost of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a fraction of the cost of alternative procedures, including liposuction. The average cost of liposuction is around $8,000, whereas CoolSculpting is typically half that price. Another consideration is ClarityMD offers Care Credit, which is financing with very low percentage — and sometimes 0% for a certain number of months.
Choosing a Professional
Patients are more likely to get an honest, accurate recommendation when visiting a physician-guided facility. Physicians and their medical staff work day-in and day-out with patients with different needs. The ClarityMD staff has the expertise to identify how well CoolSculpting might work for each person. In some cases, CoolSculpting may not be the best option. For instance, if you have significant skin sagging or if you want to reduce a larger amount of fat than is unrealistic, ClarityMD might suggest a different path. A reputable physician will only recommend a procedure that is likely to work well for you, as they have the proper training and experience without the false hope.
ClarityMD also invests in sending their staff to “CoolSculpting University,” a comprehensive three-day, one-of-a-kind training program.
One of the major reasons to get your service at a highly reputable facility is because CoolSculpting works when it’s done right. This means if it’s not done well, a patient can get peaks and valleys in areas if the fat isn’t reduced uniformly. As an example, if the applicators aren’t placed correctly — or they use too few cycles in an area that needs more — the patient might see ineffective results. CoolSculpting is priced per cycle, so an untrained person might be talked into selling fewer cycles to get the sale. The ClarityMD staff is trained to give an honest, fair quote of what it will take to get the results the patients are looking for… even if they lose the sale.
