What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is an innovative noninvasive treatment for fat cells that won’t go away without some form of intervention. 

Despite running, dieting, fasting, and any other weight-loss efforts, you might still have a double chin or a bit of extra cushioning around your hips. CoolSculpting works against the fat in these areas and makes it easy for your body to flush it out.

Specifically, CoolSculpting works by freezing your fat cells into a crystallized state. The device delivers a cooling effect deep beneath your skin during an hour-long appointment. Following the treatment, your fat cells die off. 

Over time, your body has no choice but to metabolize them. With this process, you’ll see about a 20-25% reduction in the size of your treated area. 

What areas can I reduce with CoolSculpting?

Jonith Breadon, MD, and the team can treat any area of fat on your body that you can pinch with CoolSculpting. This means that any area that accumulates fat in the first place is fair game. 

Patients frequently use CoolSculpting to target and reshape their:

  • Chin and neck
  • Upper arms
  • Breasts
  • Abdomen
  • Hips and love handles
  • Inner and outer thighs

If you get CoolSculpting, keep in mind that the treatment doesn’t help you lose a substantial amount of weight. Instead, it’s better to approach the treatment with the goal of reshaping these areas instead of making them a lot smaller.

What are the benefits of choosing CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is preferential over other treatments with similar results, like liposuction, because it's noninvasive. The advantages of CoolSculpting treatments are:

  • Painlessness
  • No anesthesia
  • No downtime for rest and recovery
  • Natural-looking results
  • Predictable results
  • Permanent results

The results of CoolSculpting are permanent as long as you don’t gain a lot of weight in the future. Thanks to these benefits, CoolSculpting maintains a 90% patient satisfaction rate.

When can I see the results of my CoolSculpting treatment?

Patients’ bodies react to CoolSculpting differently. While many people see results in as few as three weeks, others don’t see much of a difference until about three months later. Jonith Breadon, MD, and the team at Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery may recommend multiple sessions to reach your desired outcome. 

If you’re close to your ideal weight and need an extra push to lose the last bits of fat, call Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery or book a consultation online for CoolSculpting fat reduction today.
