What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® freezes away stubborn, unwanted fat from the body. The cold temperatures freeze the fat cells without harming the skin or tissues around the treatment area. Specialized applicators for the CoolSculpting® machine conform to different parts of the body to offer real, localized results. Once the cells are frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated from the body over time. This elimination of fat cells results in a slimmer body contour.

What Areas Does CoolSculpting® Treat?

It is important to understand that CoolSculpting® is a fat-reduction treatment and not a weight-loss solution. During your scheduled consultation at Park Avenue Medical Spa, Dr. Tchelebi will help you decide if a CoolSculpting® treatment is right for you and what areas of the body will benefit from this treatment. CoolSculpting® can treat nine different areas of the body, which include:

  • Under the chin
  • Under the jawline
  • Thigh
  • Abdomen
  • Flank
  • Bra fat
  • Back fat
  • Under the buttocks (banana roll)
  • Upper Arm

How Does CoolSculpting® Differ From Liposuction?

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical procedure designed to eliminate fat cells in hard-to-reach areas of the body. This treatment is FDA approved, safe, effective, and can be performed with little-to-no downtime. CoolSculpting® is a great option if you are not looking to undergo any type of surgery.

Liposuction, on the other hand, is a surgical procedure that reduces fat by suctioning it out with the use of a cannula. Patients are put under general anesthesia for this procedure, and they are also required to have a few days of downtime to recover from the surgery. One thing to keep in mind is that liposuction can remove more fat in a single session than CoolSculpting® can.
