CoolSculpting: Your Questions Answered

Why CoolSculpting Kicks Other Fat Loss Treatments to the Curb

There are plenty of sketchy ‘fat loss’ products and treatments on the market that don’t deliver on their promises. From teas that are claimed to deliver fast, miracle results, to restrictive diet plans that inspire feelings of blame and shame – it’s clear that the perfect solution is hard to find.

On top of that, it’s hard to target particular areas of your body through most traditional weight loss methods. You might want to target something specifically – say, your arms, or your cheeks, or anything!

What if there was a fat loss treatment that left you with no scars, no uneven results, and no drama?

Behold: CoolSculpting®. This treatment freezes away fat cells in particular areas of your body using a specific method that delivers strong results. CoolSculpting® has become increasingly popular since its launch – in fact, even Sarah Michelle Gellar is a fan of the treatment!

What makes CoolSculpting® different – and how could you benefit from it? Read below to find out!

What is CoolSculpting® and How Does It Work?

CoolSculpting® removes fat cells without leaving surgery scars – instead, it uses careful freezing techniques. Here’s how it works.

The process uses a vacuum-like suction device to stick to the desired target area – then it freezes fat cells. The process of freezing fat cells is called Cryolipolysis – this is what is performed during a CoolSculpting® treatment.

Normally, fat cells increase size during a weight gain, and shrink during most weight loss methods. Instead of shrinking fat cells, CoolSculpting® simply eliminates them, leading to desired results.

The nature of this treatment allows you to target specific areas – the applicator can be placed on your chin, for example – and it won’t affect the rest of your body.

What Can I Treat with CoolSculpting®?

Let’s say you want to target fat cells in a particular part of your body – this is what CoolSculpting® is great for!

These are the parts of your body that CoolSculpting® is most often used to eliminate fat in:

  • Abdomen
  • Thigh
  • Bra fat
  • Double chin
  • Flanks/sides
  • Upper arms
  • And more!

Is CoolSculpting The Same as Liposuction?

Nope! Many weight loss treatments are often assumed to exist under the liposuction umbrella, but CoolSculpting® is completely different.

Liposuction is a procedure that also uses suction tools to remove fat from certain areas. However, liposuction pulls fat cells out of the body rather than freezing them. Ultimately, CoolSculpting® is far less uncomfortable and less invasive as well.

Types of Body Contouring Services We Offer

At Chrysalis Skin Clinic, we offer two services that help eliminate fat cells: Belkyra and CoolMini.


This option uses deoxycholic acid, which is a synthetic material similar to stomach bile. Specifically, it is injected, and breaks down fat cells, causing them to be removed. Then, the cell membranes are flushed away.

This treatment is recommended for patients with mild to moderate fat deposits under the chin. Most patients would require two treatments.

While this is an effective treatment, it only targets fat cells under the chin, and cannot be used on other parts of the body, unlike CoolSculpting®.


This option uses cryolipolysis, the freezing technique associated with CoolSculpting®, to cool and eliminate fat cells. This option is used to treat a wider variety of body parts than Belkyra can. Most patients require one or two treatments.

What You Can Expect From Your Appointment

First, you’ll require a consultation to ensure that you are viable candidate. You will be asked to share your medical history and answer lifestyle-related questions. These are not meant to be invasive – instead, these questions can help make your treatment successful. After all, CoolSculpting® is a customized treatment! Plus, you will be able to ask questions yourself.

During application, you won’t have to worry about feeling any pain. CoolSculpting® isn’t like other treatment: no surgery, no scars! At most, you may feel some pinching or tingling, and you will feel slightly cold, as the procedure involves freezing.


Ultimately, CoolSculpting is a great way to target and eliminate fat. No more eyebrow-raising shakes, no more invasive surgeries, and no more frustrations – this procedure really could be the answer you’ve been waiting for.
