You have many tools available in your quest to reduce fat. For stubborn areas, you may want to choose a more targeted approach to eliminating unwanted pockets of fat cells. CoolSculpting Elite is a powerful option available to you at The Skin Clinic in Scottsdale.

CoolSculpting is a unique, FDA-cleared treatment that helps sculpt your body without invasive surgery. Achieve your personal appearance goals in the convenient comfort of your favorite medspa! We’re excited to share more information about this amazing technology and how it can benefit you.

What is CoolSculpting?

This process utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells. It literally freezes fat away over time, killing up to 20-25% of treated fat cells for good. Because this is a non-surgical process, you will experience little to no downtime.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Our CoolSculpting expert uses a specialized C-shaped cup applicator to target stubborn fat pockets. This applicator freezes the fat cells so your body can eliminate them naturally. The targeted areas will show some results immediately, and full results may take between three and six weeks to manifest.

Where Can I Have CoolSculpting Treatments?

This treatment is appropriate for many areas of your body. While many patients choose to utilize the process on their bellies, you can also select other areas, including:

  • Thighs and flanks (love handles)
  • Beneath the chin
  • Back
  • “Bra fat” areas
  • Beneath the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Under the jawline area

Is This Treatment Painful? What About Side Effects?

For most patients, the process brings minimal discomfort. You might experience a cold feeling, or a slight sensation of tugging. These ease away as the area numbs.

Side effects are generally mild. There might be a temporary swelling, redness, or numbness in the area. Your medspa technician can advise you on the best way to treat these few side effects.

How Long Do CoolSculpting Sessions Take?

Most sessions last between 35 minutes to an hour. Having more than one area treated? You can schedule multiple sessions in a single visit to treat different areas!
