The Personal Enhancement Center offers natural body fat reduction through the use of non-invasive and non-surgical CoolSculpting® treatments at our state-of-the-art med spa, Bella Derma. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Christopher P. Godek, MD, our skin care specialists are seasoned CoolSculpting® providers who can help you achieve an improved physique with natural-looking results.
What Is CoolSculpting® and How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary alternative to liposuction that is scientifically proven to reduce stubborn areas of localized fat in various regions of the body through a unique process known as Cryolipolysis™. The scientists and doctors who developed CoolSculpting® discovered that controlled cooling triggers a process of safe, natural fat cell removal in the patient’s treated areas. Once targeted fat tissue is frozen, the body breaks down the cells and expels them via natural metabolic processes. This reduction in the thickness of diet- and exercise-resistant fat layers results in a slimmer, more toned appearance for the treatment area(s).
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with CoolSculpting®?
Due to the number of special applicators now available—such as the CoolMini™ applicator for double chin reduction—CoolSculpting® can be used to diminish fat and improve the contour of numerous regions of the body, including:
- Neck and under-chin
- Upper back
- Love handles
- Muffin tops
- Inner and outer thighs
Best of the best! Dr. Godek is excellent and so is his staff, beautiful results!
What Is the CoolSculpting® Treatment Like?
CoolSculpting® treatments at Bella Derma are performed by our highly experienced skin care professionals, all of whom have received comprehensive training in this non-surgical fat reduction technique. During the procedure, the appropriate CoolSculpting® applicator will be utilized to send precisely controlled cooling energy into targeted accumulations of stubborn fat. As cooling begins, patients can usually expect to feel a tingling and/or cold sensation in the area, but these effects should gradually fade as the region slowly becomes numb.
The CoolSculpting® treatment typically takes about one hour per targeted region to complete. Unlike some practices, our medi spa has two CoolSculpting® machines, enabling us to treat multiple regions at the same time for individuals who have more than one area of concern—a process known as “DualSculpting.”
Due to its non-invasive nature, patients are able to remain alert throughout the entirety of their CoolSculpting procedure, often enjoying the opportunity to read a book/magazine or watch television. Once they leave our office, the majority of individuals can resume normal daily activities with little to no downtime.
How Soon Are CoolSculpting® Results Noticeable?
Within two to four months after treatment, CoolSculpting® patients should notice improved contours and enhanced curves as the body removes excess fat cells. In some instances, the slimming effects can continue to be observed for at least six months. Each CoolSculpting® session can reduce fat by approximately 20–25 percent, so most patients are able to achieve an ideal outcome after a single procedure. If additional fat reduction is needed or desired, however, supplemental treatments can be scheduled after about three to four months to provide enough time for the body to fully break down and eliminate fat in the area(s) targeted during the initial procedure. In order to maintain optimal results, our team recommends consuming a well-rounded diet and exercising on a consistent basis to help keep the body lean and toned.
Does CoolSculpting® Have Any Risks or Side Effects?
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting® is considered a very safe fat reduction procedure. The most common side effects experienced by patients include redness, tingling, bruising, and/or itching in the targeted area(s), though these symptoms are temporary and should lessen over the course of a few days until fully resolved.
What Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
CoolSculpting® prices are influenced by several different components, such as the quantity of areas being targeted, the skill and experience of the provider, where the practice is geographically located, and more. At Bella Derma, the cost of CoolSculpting® packages begins at $750 per treatment region. Since the procedure is not covered by insurance, our medi spa offers PatientFi for patients who wish to pay for treatment with financial assistance. This respected healthcare lender has a number of monthly payment plans to choose from, helping to make CoolSculpting® affordable for virtually any budget.
