At Pinnacle Dermatology we are proud to offer CoolSculpting. This breakthrough, non-invasive technology freezes away stubborn fat to improve your appearance with results that are effective and natural-looking.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting earned its name because it takes on troublesome fatty areas by freezing them. This cool technique kills off fat cells that cause unattractive and unwanted deposits. As time passes, your body will gradually remove these cells on its own.
Research indicates that extreme cold can promote improved and more attractive body contours. This process is known in the medical field as cryolipolysis.
Another benefit of CoolSculpting is that it's versatile and can address excess fat on just about every part of your body.
How CoolSculpting Works?
CoolSculpting uses a vacuum applicator that is placed over the targeted treatment area. The applicator is cooled to specific temperature that freezes and eliminates the unwanted fat cells.
Most patients should feel the cold start to work after a few minutes. For some people, this can lead to cramping, aching, or a tingling feeling. These reactions are normal and disappear when the treated area becomes numb. At Pinnacle Dermatology, we work to ensure patients are comfortable. Most tell us CoolSculpting is not painful.

Fat cells freeze and crystalize. After approximately two to three days, these fat cells die. After these fat cells are dead, your immune system uses enzymes to remove them. If you do gain weight after CoolSculpting, the remaining fat cells in your body will expand evenly. Patients who maintain their existing weight after CoolSculpting see long-lasting results from the procedure. If you want to reduce pockets of unattractive fat and have tried exercise regimens and diet, only to fail, CoolSculpting can help you finally win the battle. We offer CoolSculpting at our Orland Park, IL and Okemos, MI locations. To learn about the benefits of CoolSculpting and to schedule your initial appointment, contact Pinnacle Dermatology today.
