CoolSculpting: Start Treatment Now and Have the Body You've Always Wanted by Summer

Sure, it might still feel like winter here in the greater Philly region, but before you know it, summer will be here — and with it, plenty of weekend trips to the Jersey Shore. But if the thought of wearing a bathing suit puts a damper on your fun in the sun plans, consider CoolSculpting. Start these non-invasive treatments now and have the ideal beach body by June.

What’s CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a body sculpting treatment that eliminates fat cells by freezing them, a technique called cryolipolysis (destroying fat by freezing). The CoolSculpting system delivers freezing energy to target areas in your belly, back, flank, arms, or even under your chin, freezing fat cells so they become brittle and break apart. The precise targeting of the CoolSculpting system means only the fat is affected while surrounding tissues are unharmed. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body carries off the fatty debris over the next several weeks, metabolizing and eliminating it so you’re left with a sleeker profile.

CoolSculpting doesn’t use surgery, incisions, or injections, and it also doesn’t rely on the high heat used by “fat-melting” body sculpting treatments. As a result, you won’t have any downtime after your treatment, so it’s easy to fit CoolSculpting into your schedule. Because CoolSculpting relies on your body’s waste system to eliminate stubborn fat, it takes several weeks for the final results to become visible. And that’s why it’s important to schedule your treatment now so you’ll be all ready for summer fun.

Your CoolSculpting treatment: Here’s what to expect

CoolSculpting is performed in our office, with most treatments taking about an hour or less, depending on the area that’s being treated. For your treatment, you’ll recline comfortably while the CoolSculpting device does all the work. Dr. Zweiback uses different applicators for different treatment sites so you can get the best possible results. The special delivery system gently suctions your skin to enable the cooling energy to penetrate more deeply for more consistent results.

As the freezing energy targets your fat cells, you’ll first feel cold sensations deep into your skin, but as your body adjusts, these sensations will no longer be noticeable. After your treatment, you’ll be able to resume your regular activities. Your skin will be temporarily pinkish, but the effect won’t last long.

It takes a few weeks to see the initial results of your treatment, and your final results will be visible somewhere between two and three months after your body carries off the fatty debris. Depending on the results you’re looking for, additional sessions may be recommended.

When it comes to getting rid of stubborn, isolated pockets of fat, CoolSculpting can be a great option for both women and men, getting rid of fatty deposits to reveal slimmer contours. It’s important to remember, though, that CoolSculpting is not intended for major weight loss or to remove large amounts of fat. It’s an especially good choice for people who are at or near their ideal body weight and want to improve their overall curves and contours.
