Body Sculpting Chicago: Cool Sculpting

Cool Sculpting in Chicago Explained:

Cool Sculpting is the latest and hottest procedure in our Chicagoland facilities located in Chicago’s Gold Coast, Oakbrook, Naperville and Arlington Heights. When it comes to small areas of stubborn fat, Cool Sculpting is the most innovative, non-surgical and natural way to quickly lose those annoying bumps and bulges.

Cool Sculpting is a precise, non-surgical, fat eliminating treatment (approved by the FDA) that simply targets, cools and destroys fat cells, all without damaging the skin. After completion of the treatment, your body breaks down the crystallized fat cells and naturally flushes them out of the body.

Cool Sculpting fat eliminating facts:

  • Cool Sculpting from Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute is an FDA-approved non-surgical fat reduction system that uses precisely controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells, a process referred to as Cryolipolysis or Cool Sculpting.
  • Clinical studies of conducted by an independent research firm found Cool Sculpting patients reported an average of 20 to 30-percent fat loss per treated area. It does not work on obesity; it is designed for spot treatment of areas such as love handles, back fat, bra rolls, and stomach rolls etc.
  • A typical Cool Sculpting session lasts 60 minutes and is extremely affordable (financing is available) Results are seen almost immediately, but you will continue to see improvements over 3 months.
  • During the procedure the doctor gently pinches the fatty area between the CoolSculpting applicator arms. This applicator is the delivery system that cools the fat in the designated area.

Some questions people have asked about Cool Sculpting include:

Q: Will I have smooth skin after Cool Sculpting?

Our center was one of the ten initial study sites for the device. The overwhelming majority of our patients have been happy with one treatment. There is approximately 20-25% reduction in thickness of the fat layer that is treated. Patients with larger amounts of fat may need more treatments, depending on their goals. We have had no complications with this treatment and there is no downtime!

Q: Does Cool Sculpting affect my blood cholesterol or triglycerides levels?

Studies in this area done by Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian, M.D. at the Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute indicate that although there is a slight increase of blood lipids, this increase is temporary. In matter of few days the levels drop below the pre-treatment levels.

Q: Can you have Cool Sculpting done more than once?

Typically you will respond on average with a 20% to 25% reduction in your fat layer in the treated area with one treatment. Subsequent treatments to the same area may result in further reduction in the fat bulge but are not necessary if 20 to 25% reduction is your goal.

Q: Do women or men over 65 benefit from Cool Sculpting?

The short answer is yes, of course. Fat is fat no matter how old you are, just understand that a 65 year old does not have the skin or the connective tissues of a 25-year-old, which is the difference. Younger patients have the advantage of skin retraction, while older skin retracts but at a slower rate.

Q: What will the results be after a Cool Sculpting fat freeze treatment?

Cool Sculpting patients can expect a 20 percent reduction in the fat layer, based on intense scientific testing. In some cases, the treatment plan may call for additional treatments, which are typically done two to four months following initial treatment. At this time, the patient can expect another 20 percent reduction in fat, totaling 40 percent reduction. Of course, final results differ from patient to patient.

Q: What happens during the Cool Sculpting procedure?

The patient will present the areas he/she wants to address, and the doctor will determine if Cool Sculpting is a good indication for the areas requested by the patient. The Cool Sculpting treatment device is then placed on the treatment area. Once engaged, the skin and fat layer is sucked into the treatment device and the cooling energy is delivered to the fat layer, without damaging the skin. The patient will experience a firm tug on the skin layer for the duration of the treatment (about one hour per application).

Q: What does it feel like to have fat get cold from Cool Sculpting?

When the treatment device is first attached, the patient will feel an intense cold sensation as the device begins to deliver the cooling energy. As the treatment progresses the sensation gets weaker and more comfortable for the patient. Most patients pass the time reading a book, browsing an iPad or even taking a nap.

Q: Can the patient return to normal activities after the procedure?

Absolutely, because Cool Sculpting is non-invasive, the patient can return to everyday life immediately after leaving the treatment center. The patient may experience slight redness, bruising, numbness and/or tingling, but these are all temporary, minor side effects.

Q: When will the patient see results?

Patients should expect full results about two months following treatment, but many patients begin to see some results two-to-three weeks following treatment. The patients’ bodies will continue to naturally flush the treated fat cells up to four months following treatment.

Q: Are the results permanent for weight loss?

Cool Sculpting will eliminate the treated fat cells permanently, so as long as the patient maintains his/her weight and stays on an exercise program, the Cool Sculpting results will be permanent.

Q: Is Cool Sculpting Right for Me?

  1. Are you within 10 to 15 pounds of your ideal body weight?
  2. Do you have noticeable bulges or bumps that you would like reduced?
  3. Do you want subtle, natural-looking results?
  4. Do you want a procedure with little to no pain or discomfort?
  5. Do you need a procedure with no downtime?
  6. Do you prefer a natural process over drugs, chemicals, or surgery?
