CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared procedure that uses controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. It can help you get rid of your stubborn pockets of fat without surgery or downtime.

CoolSculpting is approved to treat fat found on your:

  • Belly
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Chin

The cooling energy CoolSculpting delivers has the ability to target the fat cells under your skin and freeze them without affecting any other cells or tissue. The freezing process destroys the integrity of the fat cell, essentially killing the cell, and your body eliminates it from the area through normal body processing.  

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting specialist at the office of Dr. Carolyn Kochert determines if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting when you come in for your consultation. It’s not meant to serve as a weight-loss tool like other procedures, but to help shape your body to get rid of the fat that doesn’t budge with diet and exercise.

To be considered a good candidate for CoolSculpting, you should be close to your ideal body weight and following a healthy diet and exercise program. If you’re struggling with your weight, the team offers a physician-supervised weight-loss program customized to meet your very specific health needs and weight loss goals.

What does CoolSculpting feel like?

Initially, during treatment, you may feel a sudden cooling sensation deep in your skin as the energy targets your fat cells. But the sensation disappears within five to 10 minutes as the area numbs.

Treatment takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas you’re having worked on. There’s no downtime following your CoolSculpting session, so you can go right back to your usual activities when you’re done.

How long does it take to see results?

The results from CoolSculpting aren’t instantaneous, but you may start to notice an improvement in your shape within three weeks of treatment. Your body continues to process the fat, and you should enjoy the final results within three months or so.

Dr. Kochert and her team recommend you continue to follow your healthy diet and exercise program after your CoolSculpting treatments to help you maintain your trim figure.
