CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no plastic surgery. And most importantly, no downtime.
With six locations throughout the Philadelphia area, Bucks County, Chester Springs, Camp Hill and Lancaster Bella Medspa has become a leading provider for Coolsculpting in South Eastern PA.
CoolSculpting can be used on any area where a patient wants to lose weight as long as there is enough fat in the area for the applicator to adhere to. The following are the most common areas patients choose:
CoolSculpting is most commonly used to reduce abdominal fat, also known as belly fat. Even patients who exercise on a regular basis can have trouble losing belly fat. But if diet and exercise fail to produce your desired results, our treatments can provide that midsection fat reduction you're looking for. Treatments for the abdomen can be done in one application or across up to three. During your consultation, we will be able to advise you on how many applications you should receive.
Even if they are not overweight, many people can develop a double chin due to heredity. Just like with abdominal fat treatments, treatment cycles for the chin can span one to three treatment sessions. It typically takes about 35 minutes to complete a single application.
The fat bulges in the hip, thigh, and buttocks are known as saddlebags. Some patients are predisposed to fat accumulation in these areas and may find it difficult to eliminate it through exercise alone. With as few as two treatment sessions, CoolSculpting can effectively reduce fat that causes saddlebags with significant results.
Many factors can lead to love handles, which are fat pockets on the sides of the abdomen above the hips. Love handles can develop even with a relatively healthy diet and regular exercise due to stress-induced cortisol increases, metabolism slowing due to age, sleep deprivation, and a variety of other causes. With just a few sessions, CoolSculpting can dramatically reduce or even eliminate the appearance of your love handles.
For women, back fat can also be referred to as "bra fat." Back fat can also hide muscle tone that men have worked so hard to achieve. But muscle gain does not always imply fat loss or visible definition. CoolSculpting can help you get a more defined back while also reducing or eliminating back rolls.
Gynecomastia, also known as "man boobs," is more than just a condition caused by excess fat. Hormone imbalances, anti-androgen medications, some antidepressants and anxiety medications, antibiotics, steroid use, heart medications, and even alcohol can all contribute to gynecomastia complications. Gynecomastia can also be caused by liver and kidney problems stemming from hormonal changes. To avoid noticeable breast development, some men must keep their body fat percentages well below average. By significantly reducing fat deposits in the chest, CoolSculpting is extremely effective at reducing the appearance of gynecomastia.
Even if other areas of the body like the belly appear to be slim, some patients have unwanted fat in their thighs. Thigh fat can be very uncomfortable for some people because it rubs against their inner thighs when they walk. This may make it difficult for some people to live a more active lifestyle. To prevent inner thigh rubbing, CoolSculpting can help create a "thigh gap."
CoolScupting uses extreme cold to break down and kill fat cells. The applicator device is specially designed to only affect the targeted fat cells. Doctors use the cryolipolysis instrument on your skin without any of the cutting or subcutaneous suction involved in traditional liposuction.
The cold only harms fat cells, leaving your skin and other tissue unaffected. As the fat cells die over time, they are absorbed and filtered out by your immune system.
CoolSculpting is administered in a single session to the targeted area. Its effects materialize immediately as cells start dying, but they aren't visibly apparent for about a week. As time passes and more fat cells are disposed of, your shape will continue to improve for several months.
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® effectively target fat cells underneath the skin without damage to the skin or surrounding tissues. Treated fat cells are frozen and then die.
In the weeks that follow, the body naturally processes and eliminates these dead fat cells. Treated fat cells are gone for good!*
CoolSculpting uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis to freeze and reduce the appearance of stubborn fat cells. According to a study by clinicians at the NYU School of Medicine, cryolipolysis reduced unwanted cells in the patients' treatment areas by as much as 25%—and the results were still present 6 months after treatment!
Crylipolysis can destroy fat cells in the body by using controlled cooling technology to reduce body temperature in the center of the treatment area to about 39 degrees Fahrenheit. At this stage, the cells die permanently without damage to the surrounding tissue. The liver excretes the dead fat cells out of the body within a few weeks after the initial treatment, and you can reap the full benefits of this fat reduction treatment within just a few months.
CoolSculpting procedures can produce different results for different people.
CoolSculpting procedures can effectively and safely reduce the appearance of body fat in many people. The ideal candidate is close to their ideal weight, healthy, fit, and looking for a way to remove stubborn fat bulges that do not disappear with diet and exercise alone.
However, this procedure is not right for everyone in PA. Since CoolSculpting involves very cold temperatures, you should avoid this treatment if you have are very sensitive to cold. Additionally, if you have any of the following conditions, you should not receive CoolSculpting.
Remember, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution. It is only designed to eliminate small amounts of excess fat, and you will not see a reduction in your weight after the treatment. But combined with a healthy lifestyle, you can see an improvement in your appearance due to the fat-freezing benefits of this revolutionary procedure. After CoolSculpting, continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly to maintain your results. Learn More
Since CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive procedure, recovery time is minimal. You should be able to return to your normal activities almost immediately after your appointment.
However, like all cosmetic procedures, some side effects may occur. Tingling, cramping, and sensations of intense cold are common during treatment.
Additional side effects include:
If you experience intense CoolSculpting side effects or symptoms that last longer than a few weeks, speak to a doctor as soon as possible.
