Many people try for years to eliminate body fat through a strict diet and rigorous exercise, yet they still find it impossible to achieve the results they seek. However, thanks to a new technique known as CoolSculpting®, this persistent body fat can be remedied quickly and effectively. The technique is non-surgical and non-invasive, reducing body fat below the skin through a method called cryolipolysis, in which body fat is targeted and reduced through exposure to cold temperatures.
The FDA-approved technique surrounds problem areas of fat with metal plates and then cools the metal with an electronic wand to just above freezing. The technology only affects fat cells, leaving skin cells unharmed while the dead fat cells are dissolved and consumed naturally by the body’s immune system.
Each treatment lasts about one hour, targeting a particular area of the body. The number of treatments that each client will require varies depending on the unique composition of fat in each individual’s body, as well as the number of areas that the patient would like to address. Though the treatment is safe for skin cells, there may be slight bruising on the skin around the targeted area following the treatment. This bruising is only temporary, and it should subside fairly quickly, usually within 24 hours. Clients who undergo this procedure generally see a noticeable difference within eight to 12 weeks. Imaging studies have suggested that subcutaneous fat layers undergo a reduction of close to 25% following this non-invasive treatment, a change that can be permanent if clients maintain a lifestyle of healthy dieting and exercise after the treatment is completed.

Though CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and does not require surgery, not everyone is a candidate for this procedure. The technique is not meant to be a remedy for obesity. The procedure targets areas that are not affected by diet and exercise and is designed for spot treatment only. The areas that can be targeted by this procedure are those that can be easily pinched between fingers, such as the love handles on the sides of the abdominal region, folds around the bra line, and bulges around the hips and inner/outer thighs. The procedure is not suitable for full-body fat reduction and thus is not a viable treatment for overall obesity.
Each potential client will undergo a consultation and overall physical assessment in order to determine whether CoolSculpting® is an appropriate solution to their unique issue. Treatment plans will vary depending on the total number of treatments needed, as well as the client’s financial situation, personal goals, and schedule. Because the total number of treatments needed varies depending on the client’s needs, someone within roughly 10 pounds of their target body weight with a generally toned physique may only need a few treatments. CoolSculpting® is especially effective for targeting problem areas around the abdomen and waist. Those who have a greater body mass and more body fat may require more treatments to target the various problem areas. However, the treatments are not meant for large deposits of fat or excess or sagging skin problems commonly found in clients who are severely overweight or obese.

CoolSculpting® treatments do not require anesthesia.
More than one treatment is typically needed in order to maximize results, but many clients see results after only one treatment. Because the procedure relies on the body’s immune system to naturally consume and clear away the targeted fat cells, the process is gradual and takes time to fully complete.
The effects that most clients experience right after a procedure typically do not interfere with normal activity. There are no physical limitations after the procedure, which makes this technique ideal for clients with busy schedules who need to return to their daily activities following the procedure. Many clients even opt to undergo the procedure during their lunch break, returning afterward with no impediment to their ability to work.
The speed of results depends on the size of the treated area, but some clients may see results within three weeks following the treatment. Changes continue to develop gradually over the following months, typically peaking around the sixth month.
The cost of your CoolSculpting® treatment is based on the number of sessions that you need to achieve the desired reduction in fat. After the consultation with Dr. Koger, we discuss cost and financing options.
