How much does CoolSculpting cost?
During your in-office consultation and exam, we will determine how best to treat you and therefore your cost. A single treatment starts at $700; the average patient spends $700 – $2500 depending on the amount of areas they would like treated. We offer tiered savings for those wishing to CoolSculpt multiple areas.
How do I know if CoolSculpting is right for me?
The easy way to tell if you’re a candidate is to pinch the area that bothers you. If you can squeeze it, we can freeze it! Though many areas are treatable, hardened areas like the beloved “beer gut” are usually not appropriate for CoolSculpting. To know for sure, schedule a complimentary CoolSculpting evaluation with our expert staff. Even if you’re not a candidate for CoolSculpting, there may be other options for you either with Dr. Mark or The Spa MD.
Does it hurt?
Most patients find CoolSculpting to be rather mundane and even take a nap during their treatment. Our latest CoolAdvantage family of applicators deliver much more comfort than the original Legacy applicators. During the first few minutes of the treatment, you will feel a gentle suction and cooling in the treatment area, simply limited to the extent that you know the machine is working. Once the treatment has finished and the applicator is removed, the area is briefly massaged to further your results. During the massage patients find that they are ticklish, temporarily numb from the cold, or that the area feels similar to running cold hands under a warm faucet. This sensation is brief and is typically the extent of any discomfort. As with any treatment at The Spa MD, your comfort and well-being is our top priority.
When will I see my results?
Your CoolSculpting results are within 1-3 months following your final treatment. Most patients do best with two sets of treatments, but you do not have to wait three months in between treatments. At your consultation the timeline of your treatment will be outlined. If you have an important event upcoming, or a dress fitting, please tell us so we may do our best to accommodate you.
So you’re saying I can’t have this the day before my wedding?
You can, but you won’t see results tomorrow.
Do I have any restrictions following my CoolSculpting?
Not at all. Go to the gym, run errands, take the kids to soccer practice!
Do I have to drink extra water following my CoolSculpting?
No. Your body’s natural processes will eliminate the treated fat cells without you having to help.
When can I start?
We offer same-day consultations. Based on your consultation, we will know how much time to set aside for your CoolSculpting appointment and accommodate you as quickly as possible. Typically we can schedule your treatment within a week. Evening appointments are available as well. For your complimentary consultation, call 248-606-0000 or email [email protected]
What’s the difference between a Plastic Surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon?
A Plastic Surgeon is not only certified in cosmetic surgery, but also in reconstructive surgery, head and neck surgery and hand surgery.
Do you have to be Board Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgeons® to practice plastic surgery in Michigan?
No, if you are licensed to practice medicine in Michigan, you can practice any type of medicine including plastic surgery.
Does that mean my ophthalmologist can do a tummy tuck?
What are good ways to find a plastic surgeon?
Contact The American Society of Plastic Surgeons® at 1-888-475-2784 or go to PlasticSurgery.org for a complete listing. Find out the name of the Board that certified a given physician.
Is it important that my plastic surgeon have hospital access?
Yes, you need to make sure your plastic surgeon is affiliated with a hospital. Joseph E. Mark, MD is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, on staff at Crittenton Hospital & DMC. It’s good to know that you have a choice of where you want your procedure done. If hospital services are necessary, you don’t need to receive your care from someone you’ve never met.
