CoolSculpting

coolsculpting-logo

The CoolSculpting® procedure works by delivering controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

To take your first step, consultations can be held at either of our locations. CoolSculpting procedures are held at our River Forest location.

Call one of our locations
to schedule your consultation.

  • EVERYONE’S BODY IS DIFFERENT
    Your CoolSculpting clinician will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, your clinician can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results.

6

  • OUR PRACTICE HAS MULTIPLE COOLSCULPTING SYSTEMS
    For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want to freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs and also get rid of that muffin top. Some practices have multiple CoolSculpting systems and can treat different body areas at the same time.

4

  • IT IS A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO YOUR BODY-SCULPTING TRANSFORMATION
    Your physician will provide a clinical recommendation of which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need. The result? The sculpted shape you want.
