Say goodbye to stubborn areas of fat with this painless non-surgical procedure.
 
Are you finding that despite eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly that it’s still not enough to tame those love handles or to achieve that perfectly flat stomach? There are countless men and women that still have trouble with those pesky pockets of fat regardless of how healthy their lifestyle may be. If this sounds like you, our South Barrington and Willowbrook, IL, dermatologists Dr. Jeffrey Berti and Dr. Toula Berti are here to tell you how they could freeze away the fat and improve your figure.

What is CoolSculpting?
This non-invasive FDA approved cosmetic system uses a gentle and safe cooling system that is directed over the treatment area through the skin to target, freeze and safely destroy the fat cells. This procedure is able to reduce fat cells by about 20 to 25 percent per treatment area.

What happens during the CoolSculpting process?
The first step is to come in for a consultation so that our skin doctors can sit down with you and determine your treatment goals. This procedure can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Once we have created the proper treatment plan we will also determine if you require more than one CoolSculpting session in order to achieve the optimal results. Depending on your specific needs, we may be able to treat more than one area at a time.

During the actual treatment, a special pad will be placed over the area and the handheld CoolSculpting device will transmit the proper amount of cooling to the area to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells. In most cases, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment, as CoolSculpting boasts little to no downtime.

When will I notice results?
Many patients report seeing results around three weeks after their treatment; however, you won’t see significant changes until about 2 months. Even then, your body will still be removing those unwanted fat cells for up to 6 months after your cooling procedure.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
It’s important to note that this treatment isn’t right for everyone. An ideal candidate will be someone who already has maintained a healthy diet and regular exercise and despite that continues to have problem pockets of unwanted fat. CoolSculpting should not be considered a weight loss treatment; however, some patients who are motivated to becoming more fit, will utilize the extra fat loss as a boost to keeping their commitment to a healthier lifestyle. CoolSculpting treatments will help to get you one step closer to the more ideal shape and form you want.
