What is CoolSculpting®?


Say goodbye to muffin tops and love handles with CoolSculpting®, the most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat. It literally freezes the fat away!


Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients that visit our Clarkston MI office often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.


CoolSculpting is safe, FDA-cleared, and remarkably effective. Results look completely natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.


What areas of the body can you treat with CoolSculpting?


CoolSculpting is most popularly used to treat the abdomen/stomach area, and love handles, or flanks. It is also an effective fat reduction treatment for thighs, backs (the bra band area is common for women), male breasts (Pseudogynecomastia), and more recently, chins. We use a smaller, specially-designed applicator called a CoolMini to administer CoolSculpting for double chins. Whereas the only way to get rid of a double chin in the past was through invasive surgery, the CoolMini applicator allows us to get the same remarkable results CoolSculpting offers for larger areas of the body on a much smaller area.


What are typical CoolSculpting results?


Many patients who think this all simply sounds too good to be true ask us, “Does CoolSculpting work?” In a word – yes! Not only does CoolSculpting work, but most patients are satisfied with their results after just one treatment. However, during your consultation, we will discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs and desired outcome.

What happens during CoolSculpting treatment?


To initiate the treatment we will perfectly position the CoolSculpting device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge of excess fat between two cooling panels. The sensation you’ll feel is a firm pull with some pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently, but not so much that you’ll be more than slightly uncomfortable at first. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done!


With the fat cooling treatment complete, your body will begin processing and eliminating the destroyed fat cells over the following weeks and months, revealing your new shape. If you want to keep your decision private, you don’t have to tell anyone you’ve had a procedure. Those who see you regularly will simply think you’ve been spending some extra time at the gym as the results are seen gradually over a several-month period. This gradual process is what so many of our patients love most about CoolSculpting!


Is CoolSculpting safe?


CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Oftentimes, patients return to work after the session is over.


How long does it take to see CoolSculpting results?


Many people start to see CoolSculpting results as quickly as three weeks after treatment, and will experience the most dramatic changes after one to three months. During this time your body is flushing the destroyed fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.


How long does CoolSculpting last? Are the results permanent?


During treatment, the treated frozen fat cells are eliminated. Once destroyed, those cells aren’t coming back. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle following treatment, long-term results should remain stable.


How much does CoolSculpting cost?


The cost varies from patient to patient depending on how many treatments are needed to achieve the desired effect. Give us a call to set up a free consultation to find out how much your CoolSculpting treatment will cost!
