Despite a good diet and regular exercise, many of us have stubborn areas of fat deposits that seem consistently resistant to diet and exercise. These stubborn bulges or fat deposits may be treatable with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is FDA cleared to treat specific areas of the body and you could be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if your areas of concern are any of the approved areas for treatment.

Coolscuplting is Ideal For…

Abdomen & Flanks

  • Abdomen – The abdomen is the most sought-after treatment area of CoolSculpting.  This is an area that fat tends to collect on all of us, and CoolSculpting can help decrease the fat layer of the abdomen. We segment the abdomen into two areas:  the lower and the upper abdomen.  We can CoolSculpt the lower abdomen only, the upper abdomen only, or both. During your assessment at Slim Studio, the best treatment plan will be created for your individual concerns.
  • Flanks – The area of the mid-section, commonly referred to as “love handles” on men or “muffin tops” on women is called the flanks. Some individuals fat deposit is primarily in the back above the hips; this area  is referred to as the “posterior flanks.” The area that is on the front and/or side of the mid-section is referred to as the “anterior flanks.” We can treat anterior flanks or posterior flanks or both. At Slim Studio Atlanta, the best treatment for this area of the body will be determined during your consultation and assessment.

Inner & Outer Thighs

  • Inner Thighs- A very common treatment area for women are the upper inner thighs.  Even slight bulges between the legs can be of concern for many women.  CoolSculpting can be very effective in reducing the fat layer of the upper leg, improving the overall appearance of your legs.
  • Outer Thighs- Stubborn fat deposits on the outer thighs are extremely difficult to reduce with diet and exercise.  The outer thighs are FDA cleared for Coolsculpting treatment.  If both outer and inner thighs are a concern for you, treating both areas can circumferentially reduce the thighs.  Inner and outer thighs can be treated simultaneously at Slim Studio by using DualSculpting, which will reduce your treatment time in half.

Arms & Bra Line

  • Chin- If excess fat under your chin is a concern, this area may be reduced with Coolsculpting’s fat-freezing technology.  The new Cool Mini Coolsculpting applicator’s size and shape is specifically designed to fit underneath the chin.  Although designed for the chin, the Cool Mini is also perfect for targeting smaller areas such as  the knees and the axillary pillows also known as  “Cami-fat.”
  • Knee- Fat deposits around the knee area are extremely difficult to reduce with diet and exercise.  Luckily, the FDA has also recently cleared this area for Coolsculpting treatment.

At Slim Studio, we have found that our patients have a number of questions regarding Coolsculpting treatments. Any kind of life-changing treatment, such as Coolsculpting, should be carefully considered. Therefore, it is completely understandable that one would want to obtain as much information as possible before undergoing any procedure.

Below, we have provided you with a few frequently asked questions and their corresponding answers to help you feel more acquainted with the procedure, from the different areas we treat to whether or not you’d be a good candidate, to recovery time. If you find that you still have a few more questions, you are more than welcome to contact our office to set up a complimentary consultation.

Generally, a good candidate is someone who has noticeable bulges in certain areas. We suggest that you set up a consultation so that you can discuss exactly which areas you’re looking to address with Coolsculpting so that one of our practitioners can aptly determine what will best serve you.

It varies. It all depends on how many areas you’d like to focus treatment on, and the number of sessions needed. A treatment plan can be created for you during your complimentary consultation.

Once the fat cells have been frozen, they shall naturally die off, and the body will then dispose of them. The treated fat cells will be permanently removed from your body through natural physical processes.

You will experience some slight pressure and a cold sensation in the targeted areas. As your body acclimates to the temperature, this sensation will diminish. Most patients are able to sit back and relax, read, watch TV, work on their laptop, or even catch a nap.

Over one million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed successfully and safely, worldwide. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared.

Typical side effects include a feeling of temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and slight pain in the targeted areas. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. We encourage you to set up a consultation with one of our practitioners, to discuss if the CoolSculpting treatment is right for you.

As CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment, you can feel free to return to your normal activities immediately following your procedure, if you wish.

Some patients begin to see results as quickly as three weeks after their initial treatment. You will continue to see changes in your body for approximately six months, as your body will continue to flush out the crystallized fat cells.

No, it is not necessary to see results. However, many patients feel a renewed sense of motivation after their body contouring procedure and want to maintain their new figure by taking better care of themselves.

Many patients wind up taking even better care of their bodies after enjoying the results from their CoolSculpting procedure. However, if you find that you do gain weight, you will likely put on weight evenly, not just in the treated areas.
