What to Expect

CoolSculpting Raleigh

It’s always concerning when you go in for a medical procedure, no matter how simple it may be. It is natural to be afraid of something going wrong even if your doctor has a wonderful track record of doing the exact same thing to thousands of people before you. This is why here at CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, we want to do everything possible to help put your mind at ease when it comes to what your session will entail. While taking you through a step by step process would take a bit too long in writing, we can give you a brief overview of what you should expect when you come in to have some fat frozen off.
Having a CoolSculpting procedure done is certainly nothing to be concerned about. It is a non-invasive and virtually pain free process that will leave you looking and feeling great in no time! When you arrive for your session, you have some options of what you want to do while you’re sitting there. Some people bring a book to read, some bring earphones to listen to music, others bring extra work from the office, or even a pillow so they can take a nap. You may find yourself a little chilly while having your fat frozen, but even that is often barely noteworthy. As long as you are still while our staff work our magic, you should be okay to do almost anything!
After the procedure is over, you can expect to notice your problem areas shrinking over the next few weeks. Although CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, many of our clients do lose some weight due to the shrinking of fat cells along with any changes they make in their lives. It really can be night and day between what you see before and after a session here at ThinSculpting.
If you want to feel great about how you look, call 800-8THIN-YOU today to schedule an appointment with one of our certified CoolSculpting specialists in either our Wake Forest or Cary locations. You can also use our online scheduling tool if you would prefer or if it is after hours. We have the only diamond rated facility in the Triangle Region, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands when you walk through our doors. We know that you will be satisfied with the thin that is in you!

Pregnancy and ThinSculpting

CoolSculpting Raleigh

One of the most incredible things that a person can do is have a child. It is truly a miracle that happens in someone’s body, even if it doesn’t always feel like it. One of the parts of pregnancy that we don’t often talk about is how the body changes and remains changed even after birth. Not only is there a great deal of pressure on women to “bounce back” after they have a child from the media and even friends and family, but it often causes a dysmorphia for the woman herself, especially if she has always been petite. With the changes in hormones that occur during pregnancy and early motherhood, certain things may hit harder and this definitely includes comments or perceived comments about weight.
While those of us here at ThinSculpting believe that weight is not the most important thing right after you have grown a tiny human inside of you, we also understand that self-care for new mothers is. For some, this means getting to have a nap for a few hours or a night where you eat a bunch of ice cream and watch every guilty pleasure movie that you can find. For others, however, it may mean doing something that will help you feel better about your body after all of the changes that it just went through.
CoolSculpting is a unique method of shedding some of that extra stubborn pregnancy weight because it does not use surgery or any type of medication. This means that there is minimal downtime which is naturally important for a new parent! Another wonderful factor to consider when debating having a CoolSculpting session done here at ThinSculpting is the fact that many people use it as a time to relax and even catch a little shut-eye. The procedure is so comfortable and pain free that you might be able to follow suit and make up for some of those late night feedings in regards to your beauty sleep!
With offices located in Cary and Raleigh, we are dedicated to making your life more convenient. If you have a young child, you likely won’t be able to travel far for a treatment and now you don’t have to! Give us a call today at 800-8THIN-YOU or use our online tool to schedule an appointment. You’ll thank yourself for doing something that benefits you!

Problem Areas

CoolSculpting Raleigh

All of us have parts of our bodies that we simply don't like. Some of them can't be helped, like a birthmark or a large and obvious scar. Others, however, can be helped or minimized. For many of us, these are part of what we call our “problem areas”. Problem areas are usually used to describe any of the spots on a body that many people struggle with. This means thighs, stomach, buttocks, underarms, and even the neck can be considered problem areas. We all have them, so let's start a candid conversation about those spots in particular.
I'm fairly certain that all of us have at least one part of our bodies that we would change if we could. For most people, this would mean slimming down an area that makes you self-conscious. The problem is that this is much easier said than done. If you've ever tried to stick to a diet or exercise plan, you probably know how tough it can be when there are so many other things that you need to worry about in your daily life. Family, work, friends, and even hobbies can really drain the majority of your time until you don't have much left for yourself. That's why ThinSculpting exists.
Here at ThinSculpting, we know how frustrating it can be to want to look one way while not knowing how to achieve that. Things like stomach reductions, arm reductions, hip reductions, and even chin reductions don't happen at the snap of a finger. While we haven't gotten to the point where our work is instantaneous, we do have a wonderful system that lets you see results with only about an hour of procedure time. The best part is that the process is so simple, you can even nap through it if you want!
Since we have the area's only CoolSculpting boutique, we want to make sure that everyone in the Triangle Region has the opportunity to experience the incredible work that ThinSculpting can provide. That's why we have locations in Cary and Raleigh. We also offer evening and Saturday appointments to help accommodate different work and life schedules. Feeling great about your body shouldn't be abnormal, so we can help you get rid of those problem areas with minimal effort by using an FDA-Cleared procedure. Give us a call and see how much of a difference we can make!

Looking and Feeling Great

CoolSculpting Raleigh

One of the biggest things that you can do for yourself is feel good about how you look. If only it were that easy, right? You wake up one day and think, “Wow, I'm going to love myself today” and everything is great. Unfortunately, this is rarely how it works. Loving yourself and your body is a difficult thing to do. It takes a long time, often multiple years, to get to a point where you can accept your body. It does tend to be more difficult when you have gone through drastic changes in your shape and weight. We know and understand, and want to do everything we can to help you.
A lot of times, how you feel about yourself is tied directly to how you look. If you think you look great, your mood will reflect that. If you've ever gotten dressed up and gone out, you'll probably know what I mean. It doesn't have to take a lot to be happy with how you look, but we are often most critical of ourselves. This means that we will think we look bad even if everyone else thinks we look wonderful. It's far too easy to find your own imperfections than it is to let them go and be happy with our appearance.
A good amount of our impression of how we look is based upon our weight. It is only natural that in today's society, we find a large amount of our satisfaction in the number we see on a scale. We know that it can be difficult to find something to be happy about in regards to our own bodies, but it doesn't have to be just about your size. Our goal has always been to make people feel better by liking how they look. It's not easy, but we want to do everything we can to make sure you're happy with what you see in the mirror.
If you want to look and feel great, give us a call at 800-8THIN-YOU today. We know how tough it can be to accept how you look, but we think you're gorgeous. It's not easy, but being happy with how you look can open a world that you never even knew existed. With locations in both Cary and Raleigh, we can help you no matter where in the Triangle Region you are. Let us help you find the thin that is in you!

Am I Eligible?

CoolSculpting Raleigh

There are a lot of things that can sound confusing about CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, and one of the biggest issues we find involves whether or not people know if they can have this procedure done. We want to clear up as much of that confusion as we can, so today I want to help you figure out if you are a candidate for this incredible treatment. We do want to stress, however, that you should always talk to your doctor before having something like this done. It is important that your doctor knows what you are doing with your body, regardless of whether or not it is invasive.
For the most part, almost everyone is able to undergo CoolSculpting, so it is easier for us to explain what conditions may prevent someone from having a safe session. One of the biggest reasons to hold off on CoolSculpting is if you are pregnant or have very recently given birth. Although there is a lot of pressure for people to “bounce back” quickly after having a child, it is important to remember that pregnancy is a lot for the body to handle. Not only have you be constantly changing size for the past approximately 40 weeks, but your hormones are extremely haphazard for quite a while as well. This is especially true if you are breastfeeding. Give yourself time to recover from the delivery and to spend with your little one before coming in and asking us about a CoolSculpting session.
Another limitation regards those who have certain cold-related diseases, such as Raynaud’s. As you may expect, CoolSculpting uses cold technology to “freeze” fat cells, so those who may have an adverse reaction to cold should not go through this treatment. Another group of people who should be cautious are those with certain nerve disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis or Fibromyalgia. Definitely speak to your doctor first and see if CoolSculpting is a good idea for you.
Here at the Triangle Region’s only diamond rated CoolSculpting facility, we want to help as many people as possible. We do, ultimately, have your best health in mind. This means that we will, unfortunately, sometimes have to turn people away from treatment. If you are unsure about your candidacy, call us at 800-8-THIN-YOU or come into either our Cary or Raleigh locations. Our Certified CoolSculpting Specialists can answer any questions you may still have and help you find the thin that is in you!
