How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to reduce fat deposits. This non-surgical body contouring procedure is FDA cleared for non-invasive fat layer reduction of the central abdomen, flanks and love handles. It requires no incisions, anesthesia, pain medication, or downtime.

Your body's natural cleansing processes remove the damaged fat cells, resulting in safe, gradual fat reduction. You will enjoy the toned, slimmer results within 3 weeks following your treatment, achieving the contoured body you wanted within 2 months.

CoolSculpting Process

Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?

Because CoolSculpting treatments are completely non-invasive, they are suitable for a wide variety of people. In general, people who are eligible for CoolSculpting are healthy adults who are bothered by localized areas of unwanted fat, especially on their abdomens, flanks, and thighs. People who wish to reduce a double chin can do so thanks to the device's special CoolMini™ applicator. CoolMini is shaped to match the contour of the area beneath the chin for precise treatment of this common trouble spot.

Although it does reduce the amount of fat cells, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. It's most appropriate for people who are near their ideal weight but have stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is safe for both men and women, as well as people of all ethnic backgrounds.

What can I expect during the CoolSculpting treatment?

During the CoolSculpting procedure, a process called cryolipolysis gently and effectively reduces fat cells. The cooling device will be pressed against the treatment area, targeting the fat cells that you want to dissolve without damaging any of the surrounding skin. After the tissue has been precisely cooled for a carefully calculated period of time, the targeted fat cells begin to break down.

The amount of time needed for your procedure will depend on the areas that you want to target. Currently each treatment is 2 hour. For example, for upper and lower abdomen treatments, a 2-hour session may be appropriate. Love handles would also require 2 treatments, 1 hour each. That period of time focuses the cooling process on the predominant fat deposits. Most patients experience no discomfort, and even read a book or relax and listen to music during the procedure.

DualSculpting®: Double the Treatment, Half the Time

Body by Skin Spectrum offers the convenience of DualSculpting, which gets the same excellent results in half the time. We offer this unique double treatment to accommodate busy schedules and patients who are undergoing Treatment to Transformation who will undergo overlapping areas to maximize results in an efficient time period. DualSculpting uses 2 CoolSculpting devices to treat 2 separate areas at once, reducing the time you spend in our body center significantly. If you're looking slim down your hips, thighs, or flanks, for example, we can treat both sides simultaneously. We make it extra relaxing by offering Netflix while you melt the fat away!

What can I expect after a CoolSculpting treatment?

Because this treatment does not involve anesthesia or incisions, there is no required recovery period. In 3 days, as your fat cells begin to respond, some patients experience mild soreness or a numbing sensation. However, you can return to and enjoy your regular routine soon after the procedure, even if that means engaging in strenuous exercise. Any mild redness or minimal bruising should be gone within a few days.

Is CoolSculpting a safe procedure?

The CoolSculpting procedure has an excellent safety record. The most frequently reported side effects are minor soreness, with mild redness or bruising, which should be gone within a few days. For those who are already fit and at or near their target body weight, CoolSculpting provides a non-invasive way to trim your bulges without surgery, incisions, or downtime from work, family, and fitness.

This non-invasive treatment option results in a more toned body, as your body's natural cleansing process removes the damaged fat cells from your body, safely and effectively. It is one of the few techniques that causes the actual loss of fat cells.

Does CoolSculpting really work?

CoolSculpting provides a safe way to reduce fat deposits on targeted areas of the body. Men and women who choose this method of body contouring have noted that their clothes fit more smoothly and they look more toned, although experiences vary. At Skin Spectrum, the patient satisfaction has been outstanding. In fact, our patient request and satisfaction have been so overwhelming we purchased a second device within 6 months of our first device.
