My name is Brittany Moyski and I am your CoolSculpting Specialist! To those of you that don’t know me, I’m an esthetician that has been working at REJUV AVE. for over 3 years. I personally love the beauty industry and the skincare treatments I provide to my clients. Self-care is the best care.
In the spring of 2019, REJUV AVE. decided to onboard CoolSculpting. I was thrilled not only to add this service to our practice but that I would become REJUV AVE.’s specialist in providing this service.
When I first heard of non-invasive fat freezing, I was instantly intrigued. I personally have always struggled with problem areas on my body. I eat a relatively healthy diet and exercise at least 3 days a week, but sometimes you are just left with those stubborn areas that dieting and exercise cannot help.
In working at REJUV AVE., I am afforded the opportunity to receive the services we offer to our clients. I was both blessed and thankful that I could receive CoolSculpting treatments and in return, I am able to share my journey with you.
So what exactly is CoolSculpting? CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure for the reduction of visible fat bulges. The indicated areas include:
- Submental and submandibular (chin & jawline)
- Thighs (inner & outer)
- Flank (muffin top)
- Along with bra fat, back fat, banana roll (under the buttock), and upper arms
It helps eliminate stubborn body fat by using controlled freezing to kill fat cells, then your body excretes the fat cells naturally through your lymphatic and endocrine system. The best part is that it is permanent!
I’m sure you have questions! Let me answer them!
How do you know if you’re a good candidate for this treatment?
The first step, schedule a consultation with a CoolSculpting Specialist. Generally, people who are within 20-30 pounds of their ideal body weight with pockets of “pinchable tissue” or problem areas.
How long does this treatment take?
It depends on how many areas of the body you want to treat. Generally, 2-3 hours per area of the body. We are one of the only practices in the area that offers “Dualsculpting” (2 CoolSculpting machines), which means we can cut down on time by treating 2 areas at a time.
Does it hurt?
It feels like an intense cold suction cup on the skin. Most patients experience numbness during the first 5-7 minutes of treatment. It is normal to feel numbness, tingling, aching, and burning throughout and after the treatment. It does feel achy, numb and sore for about 7-10 days after treatment. This treatment didn’t prevent me from doing anything I would normally do. I felt red and jiggly immediately following the treatment and also bloated for about a week from my abdomen treatment. So far, I have treated my abdomen (twice), & bra fat and flanks (once). I will say the bra fat was definitely the most sore and painful area out of the three areas I’ve treated however, it still didn’t interfere or prevent me from normal activity.
How long until you see results?
It takes 2-5 months to see your full results. Most areas need 1-3 treatments and you can retreat the area as soon as 30 days after initial treatment. The waiting game is by far the worst part of the process. Just remember to be patient, give it time and you will see results.
So far, I’m super pleased with my results on my abdomen from my first treatment. I cannot wait to see the results from my flanks and bra fat once more time continues to pass by. Stay tuned for updates on my continued progress throughout my CoolSculpting journey.
