CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure designed to gently and effectively reduce stubborn fat in targeted areas of the body. Coolsculpting is offered in our Bergen County NJ practice.
There are no needles, no surgical incisions, no anesthesia, no pain medications, and no recovery time after a CoolSculpting procedure.
CoolSculpting uses a precisely controlled cooling technology to target, cool and eliminate fat cells through a gradual and natural process without causing damage to the surrounding tissue and skin.
COOLSCULPTING IN DEPTH
by Bruce Freund, D.D.S.
CoolSculpting results are noticeable and natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas. There are no needles, no surgical incisions, no anesthesia, no pain medications, and no recovery time. During the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the surface of the skin to deliver precisely controlled cooling, which targets and eliminates fat cells in specific areas of the body. CoolSculpting has FDA clearance for the non-surgical reduction of fat in the abdomen (belly fat) area, flank (love handle) area, and outer thigh.
CoolSculpting uses an innovative process to freeze fat cells at a low temperature without injuring nearby tissues. This process, known as cryolipolysis™, destroys the unwanted fat cells. Targeted fat is then metabolized and eliminated as part of the body’s normal processes. Studies show that most people can reduce fat by 20 to 25% after just one CoolSculpting session. As the fat cells are exposed to cooling, a process of natural cell removal occurs. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is eliminated. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients in about two to four months.
CoolSculpting is a simple office procedure that normally takes about 1 hour per treatment area and requires no anesthesia. For the first 10 minutes of treatment, you may feel a strong feeling of coldness as cryolipolysis takes place. Most people are unaffected by this and become used to the sensation as the procedure progresses. Some people read, watch television, or simply relax during CoolSculpting. To initiate the CoolSculpting 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 after CoolSculpting, depending on your needs, you’re done.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. After your CoolSculpting procedure, you may notice some numbness, soreness, or tingling around the treatment area, which may last for a few weeks. Light swelling, bruising, or redness can also occur after CoolSculpting and should subside within a couple of days. Most of our CoolSculpting patients return to work and normal activities immediately. Results appear gradually over the course of several months as your body eliminates the treated fat cells. Most people begin to notice that their clothes are fitting more loosely around month 2, and the changes continue to develop for another month or so.
WHAT RESULTS CAN BE EXPECTED?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs. 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. During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable. CoolSculpting has been clinically shown to reduce fat in the treated area. On average, the CoolSculpting procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20% with a single treatment. After the initial treatment is complete, further reductions can be obtained with additional treatment if desired. Individual reductions may be more or less, depending on the case.
WHEN CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES?
Since CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, CoolSculpting patients can resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens, immediately. Some CoolSculpting patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
WHEN WILL I SEE COOLSCULPTING RESULTS?
CoolSculpting patients typically start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and experience the most dramatic results after two months. The body continues to flush fat cells for up to four months after the treatment. During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the CoolSculpting patient maintains his or her weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is ideal for men or women who are within 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal body weight and have a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is ideal for those people who have a noticeable bulge or bump that has not responded to healthy diet and exercise, but do not need or want to undergo liposuction surgery.
