1. Is CoolSculpting permanent?

Yes. Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. At Sona MedSpa we are committed to ensuring our clients achieve their desired results and that is why we offer The Sona Promise for CoolSculpting.

 

2. What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you may typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.

After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities immediately following their appointment. 

 

3. Why does it take so long to see results?

Once the the fat cells treated die, your body will process those dead cells naturally. You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. Check out Hannah's CoolSculpting Transformation!

 

4. Will CoolSculpting help me lose weight?

No. The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells.

5. I hear you treat the banana area - What exactly is that?

The banana roll is a pocket of fat underneath the butt that is in the shape of a banana. Some people say it makes them look like they have a double butt. Check out the two new areas we can treat with CoolSculpting!

5 Things You Wanted to Know About Laser Hair Removal - But Never Asked

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Oct 12, 2016 2:48:27 PM

5 Things Bbout Laser Hair Removal.jpg 

1. DO I HAVE TO LET MY HAIR GROW OUT BEFORE TREATMENT?

No. Unlike waxing, you do not need to grow out your unwanted hair. Shaving is required before your laser hair removal treatment. However, do not wax before any laser hair removal treatment. The objective is for the laser energy to go directly to the root of the hair and shaving allows the laser to locate the pigment of the hair follicle, with the follicle still in place.

 

2. WHAT IF I FEEL MODEST ABOUT THE AREAS I'M TREATING?

Our medically trained staff are very sensitive to your privacy. A private changing room is in each of our treatment rooms and for your privacy, we provide a robe to wear during treatment. Only the area being treated is exposed. Keep in mind, your laser hair removal is only between you and your provider. 

 

3. WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE BIKINI AREA?

You can have as much area or as little as you want treated. Only your provider will know your preference. 

 

4. WILL ANYONE NOTICE THAT I GOT LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

No. But if you have sensitive skin, you may experience some flushing of the skin due to the heat from the laser. If you experience any bumps or flushing of the skin immediately after treatment, our providers will provide cream to calm the irritation. 

 

5. WHY ISN'T THE GEL APPLIED DURING THE TREATMENT HEATED?

The purpose of the gel used during each laser hair removal treatment is to cool and protect your skin. The gel must be cold to protect your skin from the heat of the laser. Our providers will generously apply the gel throughout your treatment to ensure a safe and effective treatment.
