An overview of CoolSculpting
Everyone knows that a proper diet and exercise are the keys to losing weight. Still, what about those resistant areas where small, stubborn pockets of fat just never seem to go away? Enter: CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting picks up where nutrition and physical activity leave off. The FDA-approved procedure was developed by Zeltiq Aesthetics as a non-invasive alternative to surgical body reshaping procedures such as liposuction. CoolSculpting can re-contour the body and eliminate small areas of fat with less trauma, less downtime, and fewer risks than liposuction.
CoolSculpting is based on the concept that fat cells respond differently to extreme cold temperatures than other types of cells. During the research phase, it was discovered that fat cells were reduced when they were exposed to controlled, targeted freezing, while healthy tissue nearby remained untouched. The technical term for this scientific principle is called cryolipolysis, but at Khrom Dermatology, we refer to it as non-invasive body reshaping at it’s finest.

Patients at Khrom Dermatology in Brooklyn, NY love CoolSculpting because it doesn’t require anesthesia, incisions, sutures, or long recovery periods. Instead, patients can catch up on emails, watch a movie, or even sleep while the CoolSculpting machine works its magic – freezing stubborn fat away.

The CoolSculpting Procedure
When patients come to our office for CoolSculpting, we begin by marking the area that is to be treated and placing a protecting gel pad on the surface of the skin. The CoolSculpting applicator then gently sucks in the excess fat in this area and begins the cooling process. During treatment, it’s normal to experience pressure and some slight pain and numbness caused by the freezing applicator. Other common side effects could be swelling, redness, bruising, aching, itching, and skin sensitivity. These are temporary and will improve within a few days.
A single CoolSculpting treatment is usually completed in less than an hour, depending on the area treated.
Results from CoolSculpting
Following CoolSculpting treatment, the fat cells that were frozen will die and eliminated naturally from the body. As this happens, the area treated will begin to look slimmer. Most patients will start to see results in as few as 2-3 weeks following treatment. As the body continues to eliminate the fat cells, results will continually improve.
The total number of CoolSculpting sessions needed depends on the individual and the area treated. Some patients are happy with results after just a single session, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired outcome.
Once fat cells are eliminated in the treated area, they are gone for good. Still, patients should note that the results will only remain with proper weight control. If an individual gains weight, those fat cells will end up somewhere.
It’s also important to note that CoolSculpting is not designed as a weight loss method, but rather a way to reshape the body. Individuals should be close to their ideal weight before choosing CoolSculpting. After the recommended number of sessions, patients can expect to see improved proportions.
