How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is especially helpful for patients who have had some success losing some weight with diet and exercise, but who have specific areas of stubborn fat that are difficult to reduce even with healthy lifestyle changes. CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, cools fat cells in your desired treatment area to a temperature where they can no longer function properly. This destroys the fat cells and allows your body to eliminate them naturally over a period of 2-6 months following your treatment session. Patients can expect to lose 20-50% of the fat in their chosen treatment area by the end of their body’s elimination period.
What areas of my body can CoolSculpting be used on?
CoolSculpting has been cleared by the FDA for fat reduction treatments on some of the most common areas of concern for men and women seeking to reduce their overall body fat. CoolSculpting can be used to address bra fat, back fat, fat under the chin or jaw, fat on the thighs, abdomen, sides, and upper arm, as well as fat under the buttocks. This makes CoolSculpting a great option for patients seeking to slim down in some of the most important areas of the body in order to achieve an overall slimmer and firmer appearance. If you are interested in addressing multiple areas, your treatment plan will be designed to minimize the time you spend in our office while delivering maximum results.
How long will my CoolSculpting treatment take?
At Southwest Michigan Dermatology, we understand that every person’s body is as unique as their personality. When you trust us to provide you with CoolSculpting treatments, we will take the time necessary to understand your concerns and develop a treatment plan that will be as effective and beneficial as possible. The total number of treatments you will require to achieve optimal results will depend on your unique body composition, the size and number of areas being treated, and how much fat you want to lose. On average, a CoolSculpting session will take anywhere from 35-60 minutes to complete, and you will be able to return to most of your normal activities immediately after, making it a simple and convenient treatment option for even the busiest professionals.
How long until I see my CoolSculpting results?
Many patients report a positive change in their appearance in as little as 3 weeks. However, most patients notice the greatest change around 2 months after their treatment sessions are complete, and your body will continue to eliminate damaged fat cells for anywhere from 4-6 months after your treatment. Your total fat reduction will depend on your natural body composition and the number of treatments performed. On average, patients can expect to lose at least 20% and as much as 50% of the fat in targeted treatment areas.

CoolSculpting in Kalamazoo:
CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing procedure that is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment that uses targeted cooling to reduce the number of fat cells – fat cells that are resistant to exercise and diet. Exercise and diet can reduce the size of fat cells, but it cannot eliminate them. In this post, we will explain how CoolSculpting works and what to expect if you decide you would like to schedule CoolSculpting in Kalamazoo with Southwest Michigan Dermatology’s Laser & Skin Care Center.
First, you will meet with a licensed aesthetician for a free one-on-one consultation. Your consultation will begin with an analysis of your body. This includes taking measurement and pictures and looking at the areas of your body you wish to treat with CoolSculpting. The aesthetician will determine if you’re a candidate for these treatment areas. You will be provided with a proposal that shows what areas can be treated and what results can be expected. We will then discuss your budget and goals of treatment and come up with a plan. CoolSculpting is not one size fits all, so it’s important to customize your treatment for your body type, wants, and needs.
While CoolSculpting is typically effective with only one treatment, sometimes a patient may require an additional treatment. CoolSculpting treatment’s side effects are minimal and there is no downtime. In the future, if a CoolSculpting patient gains weight, they will have a distribution of weight that is even with the treated sites appearing smaller. On average, a patient can expect to spend just over $2000 for treatment of multiple areas of the body. We will determine the exact cost at your initial consultation.
Last week, Dr. Jessica E. Liggett appeared on The Lori Moore Show to talk about CoolSculpting – a fat-freezing procedure offered at Southwest Michigan Dermatology’s Laser & Skin Care Center in Kalamazoo. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat cell reduction treatment that uses targeted cooling to eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
The CoolSculpting treatment begins with a free one-on-one consultation with a licensed aesthetician. It starts with a body analysis – measuring, taking pictures, and looking at all areas of the body where the CoolSculpting machine could be used and determines if you’re a candidate for the areas you wish to treat. A proposal that outlines what areas can and cannot be treated and what types of results you can expect to see in individual areas is put together. The aesthetician will present the proposal and discuss with you your budget along with your goals of treatment to come up with a plan. CoolSculpting is not one size fits all, so it’s important to customize your treatment for your body type, wants, and needs.
CoolSculpting is usually effective with just one treatment, however, for some patients, two treatments may be necessary. Side effects are extremely minimal and there is no downtime. If a patient experiences weight gain in the future, they can expect even distribution of the weight; however the treated sites will still appear smaller. Once fat cells are formed, your body can only reduce their size, not eliminate them – that’s where CoolSculpting comes in. The average patient can expect to spend only about $2200 for multiple areas of the body. In order to determine the exact cost for your treatment, you should schedule an appointment for your free consultation.
