Despite proper dieting and consistent exercise, millions of people across the country share the universal frustration of certain areas of their body holding onto stubborn fat. Many body contouring treatments out there require invasive measures such as surgery. ChicMed understands that most people look for a resolution with minimal downtime and discomfort, which is why we now offer CoolSculpting as a nonsurgical, non-invasive body contouring solution at our Waltham, MA med spa.

CoolSculpting At-a-Glance

  • Clinically proven permanent fat loss approved by FDA
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Noticeable results within 8 to 12 weeks
  • Ability to treat multiple areas, including stomach, thighs, flanks, upper arms, and chin

Sculpted by Science

CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA for nonsurgical permanent fat reduction in several areas of the body using cryolipolysis. Applicators customized to fit specific areas deliver controlled cooling to target, freeze, and kill fat cells beneath the skin. Because the temperature needed to destroy fat cells isn’t cool enough to damage healthy skin cells or other tissue, the treatment is completely safe. Fat cells gradually die, and then your body naturally eliminates them during the following months. Results are significant and noticeable.

Two major types of fat accumulate in your body:

  • Visceral (fat that forms around the organs)
  • Subcutaneous (fat that forms just below the skin’s surface)

Even though eating right and working out helps reduce visceral fat, it can be difficult to get rid of subcutaneous fat. That’s the fat targeted by CoolSculpting—fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. The treatment is comfortable, and no post-treatment instructions are needed following a CoolSculpting procedure.

What You Can Expect

A CoolSculpting treatment involves attaching an applicator to the targeted area. When treating areas where there is pinchable fat, applicators use suction to draw up the skin between a pair of cooling panels. For treatment areas without pinchable fat—such as the outer thighs—applicators are strapped to the body. Once in place, we start the computer-controlled cooling process. During the initial 5 minutes or so as the area gets cold, you may experience some tingling until it becomes numb.

Most patients feel completely relaxed during the procedure. You can use your phone to browse online, read a book, stream your favorite show, or even take a nap! Treatment times vary depending on the area or areas targeted.

Fat cells destroyed by CoolSculpting treatments are gradually removed from the body. Those cells are gone for good. Some patients need more than one treatment session to meet their goals. We provide a full assessment of the area and discuss specific treatment plans with patients during their complimentary consultations.
