Body contouring treatments have grown in popularity for one reason: they work. At Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas in San Antonio, TX, we are proud to offer our patients an effective and results-driven treatment called Coolsculpting, one of the original body contouring treatments that effectively freezes and destroys fat cells so they’re gone for good. It sounds great, the results are undeniable, but you may be worried about the Coolsculpting cost.
We know that your time and your money are valuable, which is why you probably need to consider the Coolsculpting cost. When you choose this treatment, you’ll not only be investing in yourself but the future version of yourself. As long as you maintain your results, this treatment delivers permanent results. The Coolsculpting cost is worth every last penny because you’ll reap the kind of results that can last you a lifetime.
How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost?
Our Coolsculpting cost varies based on how many areas patients choose to have treated. During your initial consultation with one of our experienced team members, we’ll confirm your candidacy for Coolsculpting and then develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
We will provide you with all of the information you need to know and what to expect regarding your treatment including the total cost. Then, you will be able to plan ahead and you won’t have to worry about being blindsided once your appointment is over.
We understand that there are patients from all walks of life who are united by one thing: they want to experience Coolsculpting. For some, the cost isn’t even a factor but for others, they need to arrange their budget and plan accordingly so that they can schedule and pay for this treatment.
No matter where you land, we want to respect your needs when it comes to planning ahead, which is why we will provide you with all of the information you need before your appointment. We want to assure you that whether you can easily afford to treat multiple areas of your body, or you’ve been saving to do one specific problem area, your results will be worth it. You will see a difference in your appearance, you will get results, and you’ll love how those results make you look and feel.
If you really want to schedule this treatment, but the cost is a factor, we understand. We know that for some people, your budget is your budget and there’s only so much money that comes in and out each month. That doesn’t necessarily exclude you from this treatment. We will work with you and can help provide you with everything you need to plan your payments accordingly.
Investing In Yourself: Creative Ways To Save
There are some creative ways that you can save for your treatment that will help you reach your goal faster than you may have ever imagined. When you walk forward with the mindset that this treatment isn’t just a treatment based on vanity for vanity’s sake but instead is an investment in your confidence and your appearance, you’ll view it differently. You’ll be surprised at how much extra money you can find, even with a tight budget.
Consider Your Eating Out Budget
Sometimes, the money that we spend on meals at restaurants and even at Starbucks each week is far more than we think. If you’re looking for ways to save for your treatment and don’t think you have the money, consider those trivial areas that you may not even think about. Buying coffee every day or at least a few times a week adds up significantly. To save some extra money for your treatment, consider giving up your daily Starbucks beverage.
Cook at Home
Buy yourself a high-quality coffee and prepare your to-go coffee drinks at home in reusable travel mugs. Within a month’s time, you can save hundreds of dollars. In the same way, consider how many times a month you eat at a restaurant or order takeout. If you focus on buying fresh foods from the grocery store and eating most if not all of your meals at home, you’ll save more money than you think. And as a bonus, your body will thank you.
Fast food and restaurant food, even if it’s healthy can contain a lot of sugar and sodium. After a few weeks, you may notice the advantage of eating at home: weight loss. Losing a few pounds without even trying before your treatment can help your final results look that much better.
Watch Your Miscellaneous Spending
Trips to Target or other big box stores can often lead to miscellaneous spending. You may walk in for paper towels but end up leaving with a cart full of home decor items or things you may not need but also think you can’t live without. To save money for your treatment, discipline yourself to only buy the items on your list. If that’s too hard, order your necessities online so that you’re not tempted to splurge and waste money on things you may not actually need.
Consider Your End Goal
When you want something, chances are, you’ll do everything in your power to get it. If you want to experience all of the results that Coolsculpting has to offer, you will be motivated to do everything that it takes to put together the money you need to pay for your treatment. When you make focus on your Coolsculpting appointment as the end goal, you’ll be surprised at how much extra money you’ll find simply because you’re motivated.
All About Coolsculpting
What Is It?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment that freezes away fat. At first, it does sound too good to be true but it is a treatment that won’t disappoint you. You will get results, you will lose fat, and once you do, that fat will be gone for good.
How Does It Work?
You know you want this treatment, and even more so, you want the results. But, you may be wondering, how does it actually work? This treatment was designed by Harvard-based scientists who developed a process called cryolypolosis. Cryopolosis uses extremely cold temperatures to literally freeze fat cells and destroy them. Once destroyed, these fat cells die.
Then, over the course of several weeks, the body eliminates them through the lymphatic system. Once this elimination process takes place, you will begin to notice visible results. You’ll look and feel slimmer, and those stubborn pockets of fat that have stood between you and all of your body goals for so many years will finally be gone.
What Areas Does It Treat?
Coolsculpting can treat areas of stubborn fat that appear virtually anywhere on the body. Stubborn fat typically shows up in a few common areas of the body, and as a result, the most common areas of treatment include:
- The abdomen
- The inner and outer thighs
- The upper arms
- The back
- The flanks
What Happens During the Treatment?
During a typical treatment session, we will place the cooling gel pad on your treatment area. Then, the device will be activated and you will feel an intense cooling sensation. The skin in the area will slowly become numb, and all you have to do is lie back and relax as the fat-blasting process begins.
Most patients use the time during their treatment to relax, read a book, look through magazines, watch TV, work on their phones or laptops, or even sleep. The process is completely painless. All you have to do is show up for your appointment and we will take care of the rest.
How Many Treatments Will I Need To See Results?
The total number of treatments needed to see the best results varies from patient to patient. Some patients are happy with their results after one treatment. Others undergo a few sessions to achieve their desired results. Some patients love their results so much that they come back and have multiple areas of the body treated. During your initial consultation, you can tell us about your problem areas and we can develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
When Will I See Results?
You will notice your results within a few months of your initial treatment. Once the fat is frozen, your fat cells will die and it’s up to your body to take care of the rest. The body is efficient and knows exactly what to do with dead fat cells. It will flush the cells from your system, but it is a gradual process that takes place over time.
The benefit of this gradual process is that not only are your results natural, they’ll show up naturally. You won’t look like you went and got something done, but you will look as though you are steadily losing inches.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The results from this treatment are permanent. Coolsculpting destroys and kills the fat cells that exist in your treatment area at the time of treatment. However, it doesn’t prevent the formation of new ones. If you gain weight after your initial treatment, new fat cells will form and there’s no guarantee that they won’t land in your newly contoured treatment area, essentially destroying your results.
The best way to maintain your permanent results is to continue to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Maintaining a healthy weight, staying active, and keeping your body hydrated are essential to maintaining your results so that you can enjoy them forever.
Is It Safe?
Coolsculpting has been tested, studied, and proven to be an effective way to get rid of stubborn fat. Millions of people have chosen this treatment to help them finally reach the body goals that they may have thought were impossible. When it comes to stubborn fat, diet and fitness can fail you, but this treatment won’t.
Am I a Candidate?
If you have stubborn pockets of fat that have kept you from reaching your body goals, you are most likely a candidate who will qualify for this treatment. Coolsculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It is not designed to help you lose excess amounts of body fat, but it will help you lose inches. It is designed to target, treat, and destroy stubborn fat cells that like to form in the most common areas of the body. You are a candidate for this treatment if you:
- Have pockets of stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and fitness efforts
- Are in good physical health and are at a healthy weight
During an initial consultation, we’ll review your health history, discuss your goals, and help develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
