CoolSculpting® Removes Fat without Surgery

The midsection of a woman wearing underwearAre you seeking a gentle and effective way to enhance your figure and achieve aesthetic balance with no downtime, no activity restrictions and no surgical garments? If so, CoolSculpting® at our Chelmsford, MA, location could be the solution you have been seeking. CoolSculpting® is a groundbreaking clinically proven non-surgical treatment used to remove stubborn pockets of fat from the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and more in a safe, non-invasive manner. Dr. Dina Eliopoulos uses this advanced FDA Approved technology to freeze and eliminate fat cells to help patients shed unwanted bulk that can still remain after regular diet and exercise.

Innovative Technology

CoolSculpting® has helped over a million patients achieve amazing results without surgery through the power of Cryolipolysis®. This technique delivers cold temperatures above the skin to reach fatty tissues beneath. Fat cells crystallize at a slightly warmer temperature than skin, nerves, or muscle. With CoolSculpting®, the temperature is regulated and precisely maintained at a level that only freezes fat cells, while other tissues remain undisturbed. Once frozen, the fat cells gradually break down and naturally become expelled from the body over time, resulting in gradual fat layer reduction.

Determining Your Candidacy

CoolSculpting® is ideal for both men and women. However, patients should understand that CoolSculpting® is not designed to achieve significant weight loss or eliminate excessive amounts of fatty tissue. Rather, CoolSculpting® candidates are typically those who lead healthy, active lifestyles. Even with proper diet and regular exercise, our bodies can retain fat in certain areas. CoolSculpting® helps these candidates by reducing stubborn fat deposits and enhancing their figures.

Every patient is unique, which is why we recommend a comprehensive and customized procedure plan as part of your initial consultation. During your consultation, we will review the CoolSculpting® process in detail, identify areas that can be potentially improved, and explain the results you can expect.

The CoolSculpting® Procedure and Results

During CoolSculpting® treatment, a non-invasive cooling applicator is applied to an area of pinchable fat. Patients are seated comfortably, so they can read, watch movies, or even sleep during the procedure. A single applicator of CoolSculpting® typically takes about one hour.

The applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target fat while leaving surface skin and other surrounding tissue unaffected. Once frozen, your fat cells will experience apoptosis, a natural process of cell death. After these dead fat cells are transferred to the lymphatic system, they will eventually be expelled from the body. Using the body's natural elimination process, CoolSculpting® helps patients contour their bodies without the use of a scalpel or liposuction.

Once your CoolSculpting® procedure is complete, you can resume regular activity, including work and exercise without any stitches or scarring. There is a very minimal risk due to the non-invasive nature of CoolSculpting®. In the weeks following treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, or slight bruising around the treatment areas. You will begin to notice the slimming effects of CoolSculpting® within three to eight weeks. Your final results will usually become fully apparent within four to five months of treatment. Patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction in the treated area, an average of 20-23%. Additional treatment in the same or multiple areas may help enhance the desired aesthetic effect. The results of the procedure are long lasting and durable if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper diet and exercise.
