Hundreds of thousands of people undergo liposuction each year, but this relatively new treatment claims to slim you down half an inch after an hour of treatment. Vinita Nair reports on how effectively this procedure works.
We are very excited to announce the CoolSculpting has received expanded clearance for the treatment of the submental area, more commonly referred to as the double chin, which paves the way for the launch of its new CoolMini™ applicator.
The new CoolMini applicator is uniquely designed for small areas of fat, including the submental area. Over 500 CoolMini treatments have been performed to date as a result of pilot clinical work, clinical trials and our controlled European launch that commenced in June. The results, achieved in as little as 1-2 office visits, have been very encouraging with very high patient satisfaction and the same level of efficacy achieved with other CoolSculpting applicators.
A 2014 study conducted by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) showed that approximately 67% of people were concerned with chin and neck fat, consistent with the previous year. Additionally, a recent study conducted in the United States revealed that 22.4 million people are interested in seeking non-invasive fat reduction solutions.
“Many of my patients are frustrated with the fat they develop in the chin area because it is often hard to eliminate based on lifestyle changes alone, and the only available options to treat this area have been very invasive,” said Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. “My practice has used the CoolSculpting procedure for many years to successfully eliminate unwanted fat, and we are glad that we can now leverage this same technology to comfortably and non-surgically treat the double chin.”
Find your Jawline Again at Waco Body Sculpt, coming mid-November, 2015
WACO (January 23, 2014) A local business is using an FDA approved procedure to target stubborn fat. Waco Body Sculpt is the only business in the Central Texas area to offer coolsculpting.
The process involves a vacuum that holds tissue in place and then begins freezing the fatty tissues underneath the skin.
The cold temperatures then kill the fat cells over a three month period. The cells are removed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
Coolsculpting is being labeled as the noninvasive and more affordable alternative to liposuction.
Treatments start at $750.
The Food and Drug Administration approved the procedure in 2009.
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, saddle bags and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think surgery. Neither is cool by us. That’s exactly why we developed the CoolSculpting procedure. Only CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.
CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.

What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
