What Can I Expect During My First Visit?
During your first JIVA visit, you will discuss your specific goals with your clinician to determine the best customized plan and holistic treatment approach.
What Is Treatment Like?
During your treatment, a gel pad with a vacuum applicator will be positioned on the target area. The vacuum applicator cup will then draw in the target tissue, delivering controlled cooling to the treatment area.
Does It Hurt? How Cold Does It Get?
CoolSculpting may feel intensely cold, but this sensation usually subsides within a few minutes as the treatment area numbs.
What Side Effects May Occur?
You may experience temporary symptoms as the numbness wears off, including redness or blanching, tingling, itching, stinging, tenderness, or aching. You might also have some firmness, swelling, or skin sensitivity.
Is There Any Recovery Downtime?
Many people go back to work or continue planned activities after a treatment. Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, most people are able to cope with any side effects as the numbed skin returns to normal.
How Long Until I See Results?
CoolSculpting works by literally freezing fat cells. When fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated through the body’s metabolism process.
