Is there any downtime?
After the procedure, patients go on with their normal daily routine without any limitations. Within minutes of the fat cells thawing out, their damaged membranes start to leak into the spaces between the cells. About three days after the procedure, this leakage causes white blood cells to arrive at the treatment site and start the slow process of removing those damaged fat cells. Over the next 90-120 days, the immune system will remove a total of approximately 25% of the fat layer. This process is completely natural and does not result in any fibrosis or scarring. The fat layer looks identical to what it did before the procedure, except it is about 25% thinner. There are no needles and no cutting involved. Our office has received the Certified Center Award from the manufacturer of CoolSculpting. Typically, two treatments are recommended for optimal results.
