CoolSculpting® and Dual-Sculpting

Zeltiq Certification Seal-blueEating nutritious food, exercising regularly, and maintaining a healthy body weight are important for a balanced and active lifestyle. However, many individuals who are at or close to their ideal weight discover that even with adherence to a strict diet and exercise routine, stubborn pockets of fat remain. Often located on the hips, thighs, and/or stomach, these fatty deposits may even be the result of genetic predisposition rather than excess consumption or inactivity. To assist our patients in treating these areas of concern, Lifestyle Solutions MedSpa offers FDA-approved, non-surgical CoolSculpting® treatments that can help to re-contour the body and reduce excess fat.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® uses an innovative technique called Cryolipolysis™, which destroys targeted fat cells by freezing them. The body’s natural metabolic process then gradually removes the broken down cells, typically over the course of two to four months. This non-invasive approach uses no needles, incisions, or other invasive measures, and the procedure generally requires little to no downtime. Furthermore, CoolSculpting® is designed to focus energy deep within the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. In most cases, a single CoolSculpting® treatment can provide effective results, although individual experience may vary.

Your time is important to us, and If you’re considering treating more than one area, for instance, both flanks, thighs, or arms, we also offer Dual-Sculpting. A second CoolSculpting® machine allows us to address multiple areas of concern in half the time, helping to increase efficiency and improve your overall experience. Our skilled aesthetics team and weight loss doctor will be happy to develop a customized treatment plan using one or two CoolSculpting® devices to best address your individual concerns and cosmetic goals.

CoolMini™ for Double Chin Treatment

Until recently, CoolSculpting® was only effective on areas of the body. Now, it’s possible to reduce excess fatty tissue from your chin as well. Submental fullness, commonly known as a “double chin,” can be minimized using the specialized CoolMini™ device. This hand-held attachment uses the same advanced technology as CoolSculpting® but is made to fit comfortably under the chin for targeted treatment.

Excess fat under the chin is a common concern that can affect men and women of all fitness levels and maturities. In the past, surgical procedures were the go-to option to address this frustrating issue. If you’ve tried diet and exercise and found little or no improvement in your facial contour, CoolMini™ may be able to help you enhance definition along your jawline, chin, and neck without the need for surgery, needles, or stitches.

How much does CoolSculpting® Cost?

One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting® is the procedure often costs less than liposuction. Furthermore, less downtime and recovery is associated with this non-surgical treatment, so you may also see savings with regard to taking time off from work or your regular schedule. According to the manufacturer, the national average price of CoolSculpting® per treatment is between $2,000 and $4,000. This number does not necessarily reflect the cost at Lifestyle Solutions, and we can review the expected cost with you during your initial consultation. It is our practice to customize every program to best suit the needs and goals of the individual. We also work with reputable medical financing agencies, in the event a payment plan would better fit your budget and lifestyle. Feel free to talk to us about your interests and voice any questions. We’re here to help.

Learn More About CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is an exciting fat reduction option for patients who prefer a non-surgical approach to body contouring. To help you become well-informed about what this procedure can do, we have answered some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about CoolSculpting®. To learn more, or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office.

What does the procedure feel like?

CoolSculpting® uses suction to deliver targeted cold energy treatment to the desired area. You will feel some slight pressure as the procedure begins, as well as a strong sensation of cold for a short period, followed by numbness. Some patients report tingling in the affected area as well. Once the session has ended, we will massage the area, which may be a little sore or uncomfortable as the skin warms to the touch. We make every effort to enhance your experience at every stage. Some mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort is to be expected, and these effects should fade within a few days, often less. Most patients can return to their normal daily schedules immediately following treatment.

Does CoolSculpting® Work?

For some patients, CoolSculpting® sounds too good to be true. But this method can help reduce stubborn fatty tissue from targeted areas. It is not intended to be a weight loss product, but it can be used to assist you in your weight loss and cosmetic goals. CoolSculpting® is a gradual process and takes a small amount of patience to see the results. Used in combination with a healthy diet and smart fitness regimen, this technique can be effective in contouring “trouble spots” that so many people struggle with.

Can CoolSculpting® completely eliminate the need for liposuction?

In clinical studies*, CoolSculpting® was able to reduce the excess fat in the treated area by up to 20-25%. With multiple treatments, more fat can be addressed. Your needs and goals are unique, and CoolSculpting® may be able to help you achieve your desired outcome without the need for surgery. However, there are some limitations to this approach, as is the case with any body contouring technique. We will discuss what is possible during your initial consultation.

How long until I notice a result?

We recommend maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle to make the most of your CoolSculpting® treatment, and you should be able to see optimal results after two to four months. You may be able to notice changes as early as four to six weeks, and the benefits should continue to improve for several months. You may need more than one CoolSculpting® treatment to obtain the outcome you desire, and our skilled medical team will help you determine how many sessions will be needed based on your anatomic characteristics, expressed goals, and other factors.

What other fat reduction methods are available?

At Lifestyle Solutions, we offer a range of state-of-the-art weight loss and fat reduction methods to best suit you. In addition to CoolSculpting®, we have physician supervised weight loss plans, fat burning injections, and prescription medication.
