Patients in Chicago, IL ask, “Does a CoolSculpting treatment work?”

The unwanted pouch or love handles may still be present. In Chicago, IL, Dr. Jonith Breadon of Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery offers CoolSculpting treatment to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat. Our team offers advanced medical and cosmetic procedures to keep your skin, face, and body healthy and beautiful.
Weight loss or fat reduction
Weight loss does not equal fat reduction. Many people assume losing weight and inches mean the fat has disappeared a well. Diet and exercise plans are often started with the goal of losing pounds, getting into shape, and living a healthier lifestyle. While following a healthy routine is a great plan, the fat does not disappear.
Fat cells are stored throughout the body. With weight gain, fat cell expand. With weight loss, the same cells shrink or drain but they do not disappear. The deflated cells remain stored in the body, lurking just beneath the skin. If the individual gain weight again, the cells expand once more.
Patients who have achieved their goal weight still have fat cells present in their bodies. Even being at your ideal weight, you may not have your ideal body shape. The not-so-cute love handles, muffin top, or banana roll may linger. Fat reduction procedures such as CoolSculpting treatments are necessary to permanently eliminate unwanted fat cells.

CoolSculpting treatments for targeted fat reduction
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. It is a precise system that targets and destroys unwanted fat. The gel pad and applicator are placed on the target area to freeze fat cells. Once the cells are frozen, the body goes through changes and eliminate the cells over a period of a few months. During this period, the frozen fat cells die off and are eliminated by the body. The destroyed fat cells are gone forever. Fat cells will not regrow in that same area. With CoolSculpting, the fat cells are physically removed from the body never to return. The surrounding tissues remain intact and unharmed.
Fat reduction treatments are customized for each patient’s needs. The applicator used and the number of treatments needed may vary depending on the patient, the area of the body being treated, and the desired result. CoolSculpting treatments are non-invasive and are performed in the office. No anesthesia is needed. There is no scarring or a lengthy recovery period. Patients can resume their normal activities following the treatment. Mild temporary side effects may include swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness. The discomfort should subside within a day or two of the procedure.
Does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting and other fat reduction procedures are not designed to replace a healthy lifestyle. However, CoolSculpting is one of the top non-surgical treatments because it works. The treatment removes targeted areas of stubborn fat. With over 5 million procedures performed worldwide, patients achieve noticeable, lasting results. Fat cells in the treated areas are reduced by 20-25%.
CoolSculpting procedures are not limited to a single area of the body. With different treatment applicators available, targeted areas may include:
- Under the chin
- Upper arms
- Bra or back fat
- Under the buttocks

The procedure is effective in giving patients the desired body shape, helping clothes fit better, and boosting self-esteem.
