What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that eliminates unwanted areas of fat. It doesn’t require needles, incisions, or anesthesia and provides permanent results.

CoolSculpting can help you look your best and fit into your favorite outfits.

What areas of the body can CoolSculpting treat?

At Ross Dermatology, the team uses CoolSculpting to treat fat on various parts of the body, including:

  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Arms
  • Chin (double chin)
  • Bra area

How does CoolSculpting work?

Coolsculpting is a type of cryolipolysis, a cosmetic treatment that freezes and destroys fat cells. 

During CoolSculpting treatment, your Ross Dermatology specialist applies a gel pad and a handheld applicator to the targeted area. The applicator emits cooling energy, freezing your fat cells and causing them to die.

Your specialist repeats these same steps several times on various parts of your body. In fact, they can treat multiple pockets of fat during a single visit. After treatment, fat cells process out of your body with other waste.

Is CoolSculpting safe?

CoolSculpting is safe and typically well-tolerated, but like any cosmetic procedure, there are risks. Common side effects of CoolSculpting include:

  • Sensations of intense cold
  • Tingling
  • Stinging
  • Pulling
  • Aching
  • Cramping

If you experience any discomfort during the procedure, let your Ross Dermatology specialist know. They can adjust the settings as necessary.

What is recovery like after CoolSculpting?

After CoolSculpting, it’s normal to experience mild swelling, soreness, and bruising. Even so, you can return to work and other activities right away. Any discomfort should subside within a week. If your symptoms persist or worsen, contact Ross Dermatology immediately.

When will I experience results from CoolSculpting?

It usually takes several weeks to experience the results of CoolSculpting. That’s because it takes a while for your body to process and flush away the fat with other waste. To maintain your results, the team at Ross Dermatology recommends eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly.
