What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting is a completely noninvasive body-contouring treatment to help you lose unwanted fat. CoolSculpting uses a unique fat-freezing technology to eliminate areas of fat in common trouble spots like your stomach, love handles, and even below the chin. 

CoolSculpting is FDA cleared to treat fat bulges that are common in the:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flank (love handles)
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arm
  • Submental area (under the chin)

In just one session, it’s possible to achieve real, noticeable results. Patients can see up to 25% reduction in fat layer thickness, with optimal results appearing 2-6 months after treatment.  

How does CoolSculpting work?

Fat cells in certain areas of the body are hard to lose, even with a healthy diet and exercise. CoolSculpting uses a technology called cryolipolysis to destroy stubborn fat cells. Cryolipolysis essentially freezes fat in the treatment area, eliminating it over time.

CoolSculpting treatment involves cooling panels that chill the fatty layer below the surface of your skin. Fat cells don’t respond well to cold temperatures, freezing and dying during treatment. Your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system. The result is fat reduction.

What can I expect with CoolSculpting treatment?

Your CoolSculpting treatment is customized at Skin Deep MD*. Because everyone carries fat differently, treatment plans and results vary. Many patients achieve desirable results in just one session, and Dr. Denham and her team work with you to determine how many sessions will help you reach your goal look.

At Skin Deep MD, you have the option for dual sculpting to achieve bigger results in less time. The clinic has two CoolSculpting systems, so it’s possible to receive treatment in two areas, such as the abdomen and the flanks, in the time it normally takes to have only one treatment.

When you come in for treatment, your aesthetician prepares the treatment area and applies a gel pad to protect your skin. As the cooling applicator is placed on your skin, you may feel a sucking sensation. 

As your skin cools, the treatment area becomes numb. You may experience pulling, tingling, or pinching sensations, but these are generally well-tolerated. Many patients read or nap during treatment. 

With CoolSculpting, you’ll experience little to no downtime. As your body works to naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells, your results begin appearing. Most patients experience optimal results after two to six months.

You don’t have to settle for a body that makes you unhappy. For many patients, CoolSculpting helps shed stubborn, unwanted fat. Let the team at Skin Deep MD help you decide if CoolSculpting is a good option for you. Call the office or make an appointment online today.
