Due to the effects of aging and genetics, some people have to deal with stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to go away despite diet and exercise. While these stubborn pockets of fat are nearly impossible to eliminate, surgical treatment might seem too drastic of a solution.
For those seeking a nonsurgical treatment, CoolSculpting® has arrived as the latest, state-of-the-art fat reduction method. Without a single incision, CoolSculpting® can permanently eliminate these problem areas during a few short, relaxing treatments. Gradually, your body will transform into a sleeker, more svelte figure.
Chicago CoolSculpting® Technology
CoolSculpting® works through a fat freezing mechanism. It employs temperatures cold enough to freeze fat but not surrounding tissues. Fat freezing can specifically target these fat cells – crystallizing and killing them, then naturally flushing them from the body. These fat cells cannot return or continue to accumulate, so the results are permanent.
Because of its unique mechanism, CoolSculpting® only targets the necessary tissue, resulting in a comfortable treatment that requires no downtime or recovery.
CoolSculpting® is versatile enough to reduce fat in a wide variety of areas: the double chin, abdomen, bra fat, back fat, beneath the buttocks, and thighs. While excellent results will appear as soon as three weeks after only one treatment, you might need more sessions to get the perfect figure you desire*. The most remarkable CoolSculpting® results often appear two months after treatment.*
Chicago CoolSculpting® Elite
CoolSculpting® Elite is a variation of CoolSculpting® technology that permanently eliminates up to 25% of unwanted fat cells. In addition, it is the only FDA-cleared treatment to eliminate stubborn fat in nine different areas. These include the thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, under the buttocks, the upper arm, jawline, and under the chin.
The CoolSculpting® Elite applicators employ several engineering improvements, like the new C-shaped design. This redesign conforms to your body’s natural curves, offering a more natural fit.
Larger Cooling Panels
The new applicators have 18% larger cooling panels. Additionally, these new panels eliminate more fat cells than previous applicators for a more successful treatment.
The most significant distinction between these two fat-freezing mechanisms is CoolSculpting Elite’s dual applicators. The original technology used a single applicator per treatment. CoolSculpting Elite can employ two applicators, allowing patients to target two areas during a single treatment session. Dual applicators also increase the fat reduction in less time.
The CoolSculpting® Treatment
Your CoolSculpting® treatment will be a relaxing, comfortable experience. You’ll get to spend your treatment in a reclining position. At the same time, your provider will apply a gel pad and a CoolSculpting® applicator. You will then feel a soothing, cooling sensation and gentle tugging as the applicators get to work. During your treatment, you can relax and fill your time by reading, listening to music, or even napping during the short procedure.
Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® delivers excellent results, but it is essential to emphasize that it is not a weight-loss procedure. CoolSculpting® is for patients who are relatively close to their ideal weight, yet who still struggle to remove stubborn pockets of fat. The ideal candidate should also have excellent skin elasticity to bounce back quickly after fat reduction. If you happen to have too much excess skin or fatty tissue, surgery might be necessary.
CoolSculpting® is an incredibly safe and comfortable procedure, requiring no downtime or recovery after the treatments. Some patients report swelling, bruising, or redness, but this is temporary and should disappear in a few days.
