CoolSculpting® in Chicago Explained

CoolSculpting® 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, CoolSculpting® is the most innovative, non-surgical and natural way to quickly lose those annoying bumps and bulges.

CoolSculpting® is a precise, non-surgical, fat eliminating treatment (FDA-cleared) 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.

CoolSculpting® fat eliminating facts:

  • CoolSculpting® from Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute is an FDA-cleared non-surgical fat reduction system that uses precisely controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells, a process referred to as Cryolipolysis or CoolSculpting®.
  • Clinical studies conducted by an independent research firm found CoolSculpting® 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 CoolSculpting® session lasts 60 minutes and is extremely affordable (financing is available).
  • 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. A gel pad is also used during the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

WILL I HAVE SMOOTH SKIN AFTER CoolSculpting®?

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!

DOES CoolSculpting® 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.

CAN YOU HAVE CoolSculpting® 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.

DO WOMEN OR MEN OVER 65 BENEFIT FROM CoolSculpting®?

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.

WHAT WILL THE RESULTS BE AFTER A CoolSculpting® FAT FREEZE TREATMENT?

CoolSculpting® 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.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE CoolSculpting® PROCEDURE?

The patient will present the areas he/she wants to address, and the doctor will determine if CoolSculpting® is a good indication for the areas requested by the patient. The CoolSculpting® 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).

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO HAVE FAT GET COLD FROM CoolSculpting®?

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.

CAN THE PATIENT RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

Absolutely, because CoolSculpting® 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.

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.

ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT FOR WEIGHT LOSS?

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