CoolScupting is mostly aimed at stubborn fat, however you do not need to be at your ideal body weight before having this treatment performed. CoolSculpting works all body types, from the rather thin to the very heavy. We frequently treat people who are in relatively good shape but have stubborn fat they can’t get rid of. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss substitute, but with proper diet and exercise can help guide your body to focus on eliminating fat more in the treated areas.

Coolsculpting clients frequently have the most ideal treatment outcomes with several treatments. When you come in for a CoolSculpting consult, we will evaluate your individual body type and texture and recommend a treatment guideline that will yield your most ideal results. Many times this involves a combination of treatments, using a variety of sizes of our treatments heads for best results.

Before your first CoolSculpting treatment, we will do a free no-obligation consultation and provide our recommendations for you to achieve your most ideal body contouring. Just prior to the treatment, you may want to take over-the-counter pain medication to better tolerate discomfort related to the procedure.

During treatment of large and small areas the cool sculpt device is attached with a suction mechanism for 30-60 minutes. We have the CoolMini device that specializes in reducing the fat that is located under the face in the chin area and help to dramatically decrease the appearance of the “double chin.” People have been extremely satisfied with these treatments but many do require two treatments for full results. This head can also be used to treat other parts of the body that have small areas of fat that are too small for the usual handpieces that we have. Treatment with the CoolMini lasts for only 45 minutes. During treatment with the cool smooth head there is no suction/vacuum mechanism, but rather the device is applied to the skin and held in place using material straps for 120 minutes. All of these treatment methods cause fat cell death through freezing. These cells are later metabolized by your liver and excreted in your stool. After treatment, we will remove the device and massage your treated area aggressively for one to two minutes. The initial pull with the suction and the post-treatment massage processes are the most uncomfortable parts for most people. Treatment is then complete and you are on your way.

You will likely experience bruising, from mild to significant, but it will all resolve as your body heals. You will also likely note a numbing or even stinging sensation to treated area as some of the nerve endings are traumatized. All of those untoward sensory changes will resolve with time but sometimes takes months for complete resolution. In addition, the area may be tender for up to two weeks.

Before your first CoolSculpting treatment, we will do a free no-obligation consultation and provide our recommendations for you to achieve your most ideal body contouring. Just prior to the treatment, you may want to take over-the-counter pain medication to better tolerate discomfort related to the procedure.

You are also welcome to take Tylenol or Ibuprofen to assist with post-procedure pain. If you find the tenderness to be unbearable, text or mail Dr. Cellucci and she will consider calling in some medication (Neurontin or Gabapentin) to assist with what is titled “reperfusion pain.”

We welcome you to check around and our guess is that our prices will be difficult to beat. We are happy to do a consult for this treatment if you come to Jeuvani for other products or treatments and are just curious if you would be a good candidate for CoolSculpting.

We are fortunate to have two certified CoolSculpt experts who underwent specialty training at CoolSculpt University who are highly trained and experienced with these procedures.  Their names are Jenn Geeting and Theresa Palos and they are both excited to work with you to help you achieve your body contouring goals.

"Freezing Fat Cells: Coolsculpting Claims To Remove Fat Without Surgery"

Is CoolSculpting Better Than Liposuction?

New clients walk into our office every day with one question: Is CoolSculpting better than liposuction? Fundamentally, this is the wrong question to ask. The better inquiry is which treatments are you a better candidate and achieves your goal. While both will permanently remove fat cells from the body, the similarities end there.

All things considered, your needs and goals will dictate which body sculpting procedure is right for you. You should beware those selling one-size-fits-all solutions. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Here is a general list.

  1. Procedure Type – Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, while CoolSculpting is noninvasive.
  2. Best for Treating – CoolSculpting works best for small to moderate trouble spots. On the other hand, liposuction works well on larger deposits and fine-tuning surgical results.
  3. Target Areas – Liposuction works great for the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs and most areas. CoolSculpting works well for the upper and lower abdomen, back, and inner thighs.
  4. Results – A single CoolSculpting treatment can reduce the size of a bulge, while liposuction will produce more dramatic and immediate results.
  5. Downtime – Many times, with liposuction, it will take a week before you can return to regular active and another 6 weeks for vigorous exercise. CoolSculpting has no downtime at all.
  6. Repeated Treatments – In most instances, CoolSculpting achieves the best results with 3 sessions. However, generally speaking, liposuction does not require additional treatment.

Ultimately, CoolSculpting is the better option for those wanting to avoid the higher cost, risk, pain, and recovery time associated with liposuction. In fact, many clients are relaxed and comfortable enough, during the procedure, to listen to music or read a book. Regardless, the best treatment is based on your own personal needs.
