First, we need to establish the incredibly important fact that CoolSculpting® WORKS! This FDA-cleared treatment is clinically proven to help reduce targeted fat and keep it off. However, we are writing a blog about when CoolSculpting doesn’t work because we’ve seen patients who have had negative experiences with other CoolSculpting providers, and we want to help you get the best results you can!
If you’ve had a negative CoolSculpting experience, here are a few factors that may be at play:
The number of treatments
Did you undergo only one CoolSculpting treatment? While some people achieve their goals after one treatment, CoolSculpting is designed to work best as a series, revealing gradual benefits in the months following your treatments. Most of our patients here at Skin Care Institute see their best results after two treatments. During your personal consultation, we will help you determine the ideal regimen to meet your goals.
The experience of your provider
Not all CoolSculpting treatments are created equal. It takes advanced training and experience to administer the most effective CoolSculpting treatments. If you didn’t see any improvement, it’s possible that your provider failed to administer the appropriate treatment for your unique needs. For example, perhaps you had only one applicator when you needed two. This is a common mistake that inexperienced providers can make. Here at Skin Care Institute, our CoolSculpting-certified experts have undergone advanced training and treated over 1,000 clients, so we know exactly how to get you the results you deserve.
Were you hoping to lose a significant amount of weight or reduce your overall size? CoolSculpting works to reduce pinchable pockets of fat in targeted areas. If you have pinch-an-inch fat like a muffin top or double chin, CoolSculpting can help you reduce that fat. However, if you’re hoping to lose weight and look smaller overall, you are better off first losing weight before undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment. Here at Skin Care Institute, we can help you determine if CoolSculpting is right for you during your personal consultation. We want you to be successful and get the most from your hard-earned money, so we will work hard to help you every step of the way!
