Coolscuplting Treatment Areas

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

  • Bra Line- If bulges around the bra line are troubling you, you may be able to have this area addressed with Coolsculpting as the FDA has recently cleared this area for treatment.

Chin & Knees

  • 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.

CoolSculpting is a treatment that can reduce fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is the world’s first and only fat reduction procedure that employs cold to eliminate unwanted fat cells, resulting in the reduction of the fat layer. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment with minimal side effects and no downtime.

Fat cells don’t like the cold!  The temperature of the Coolsculpting applicators.  At  -11 degrees Celsius, fat cells become injured, then freeze and die.  The treated fat cells will be eliminated through your body’s natural physical processes in the days and weeks that follow your treatment.  20%-25% of the fat layer can be reduced with Coolsculpting.

We like to say “if you can squeeze it, we can freeze it!”. CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the abdomen, flanks, inner & outer thighs, banana roll, arms, bra line, back, cami fat, chin and knees. Read more about each treatment area here.

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 all depends on the area you are treating. Thankfully, we have perform  DualSculpting, which allows us to cut treatment time in half by using two machines simultaneously.  Based on the treatment area and applicator used, treatments are either 35 minutes (for abdomen, flanks, arms, bra line/back, flanks, inner thighs, banana rolls), 45 minutes (for chins, knees, cami fat) or 1 hour and 15 minutes (for outer thighs).

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.

CoolSculpting has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective procedure for non- invasive fat reduction.  Common side effects include a feeling of temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and slight pain in the treated areas. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or have a hernia in the area of treatment.  We encourage you to set up a consultation with one of our expert technicians to determine if the CoolSculpting treatment is right for you.

CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive and there is no downtime or recovery. You can expect to be tender and sore after a treatment, but most patients can return to their normal activities including work and working out immediately. It’s a great lunch break procedure!

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

CoolSculpting has changed the game in body contouring and plastic surgery, making non-invasive and non-surgical treatments the way to go. We wouldn’t be one of the highest volume CoolSculpting providers in the state of Georgia if the treatment didn’t work! Statistically, one treatment results in 20-25% of fat reduction in the treated area. Our highly trained staff will advise you on how many treatments you may need to reach your desired goal.

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.

We will let you be the judge of that! See our before & after gallery here. CoolSculpting has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of any cosmetic procedure. Patients have reported a 96% satisfaction rate after completing 6 cycles or more and 8 out of 10 patients would recommend the treatment.

Following the Coolsculpting treatment, if your weight is maintained with a good diet and exercise, the results from a CoolSculpting treatment should be lasting.

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.

We recommend that you engage in healthy eating habits and exercise on a regular basis following a Coolsculpting treatment to avoid gaining weight. However, if you do gain weight, size change will occur naturally and not just in the treated areas.

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.
