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.

Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery is proud to provide both South Barrington and Willowbrook, IL, with comprehensive skin care to patients of all ages. If you want to learn more about CoolSculpting and whether it’s right for you, call (630) 321-0303 for Willowbrook and (847) 304-0303 for South Barrington today to schedule your consultation.

What you need to know about CoolSculpting from your Willowbrook and South Barrington dermatologists.

Do you see celebrities like the Kardashians and wonder how they always manage to look great? Now, thanks to a revolutionary new technology called CoolSculpting, you can have the body you want too! Drs. Jeffrey and Toula Romas Berti of Dermatology & TrusculptDermatologic Surgery in Willowbrook want to help you discover how to get your best body with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, FDA-approved cosmetic fat reduction procedure developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, an affiliate of the Harvard Medical School.
The procedure uses cold energy, in a process called cryolipolysis, to target and freeze the fat cells, while leaving your skin undamaged. The frozen fat cells die, and over time your body naturally eliminates them.  When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. With CoolSculpting, the number of fat cells actually reduces. When these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. 

Your doctors at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery want you to know the many advantages of CoolSculpting. You should choose CoolSculpting because:

  • It will remove stubborn fat deposits, resistant to diet and exercise.
  • There are no incisions or sutures involved.
  • There is no downtime, and you can quickly return to your daily activities.
  • It is a convenient, outpatient procedure.
  • Results are permanent if you maintain a healthy lifestyle following the procedure. 
  • The procedure is non-invasive and comfortable.

CoolSculpting can help you lose up to 25 percent of fat in treated areas after only one visit. Each visit will help you eliminate even more fat deposits. Your doctors at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery want you to know CoolSculpting has a success rate of nearly 95 percent, and the results have been studied in over 4,000 patients. Over two million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed around the world.

CoolSculpting isn’t just for Hollywood celebrities like the Kardashians. You can enjoy the benefits too and get the body you want. All you have to do is make a phone call to your doctors at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery with offices in South Barrington and Willowbrook, IL. Call (630)321-0303 for Willowbrook and (847) 304-0303 for South Barrington today. Get started on a new you!

What is Coolsculpting?
This is the only non-surgical, FDA-approved cosmetic fat reduction procedure which allows patients to lose weight without an invasive procedure. CoolSculpting was developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, an affiliate of the Harvard Medical School. The procedure uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. 

How does Coolsculpting reduce fat?
During your procedure, your doctor in Willowbrook, IL will attach the tissue-cooling applicator to the area you want to treat to start cooling the fat tissue. This vacuum-like applicator will gently pull tissue and hold it between two cooling layers. The system has a precise monitoring system to ensure that the cooling is properly and evenly distributed throughout the targeted region. When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. With CoolSculpting, the number of fat cells actually reduces. When these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.

What should I expect from my results?
You may start to notice some changes to your body in as soon as three weeks after your treatment. Research has found that there is the most noticeable reduction in fat about two to four months after getting Coolsculpting.

How long will my results last?
One of the benefits of Coolsculpting is that results are permanent if you maintain a healthy life style following the procedure. Weight gain can occur if you lead a sedentary lifestyle combined with overeating after receiving Coolsculting. The fat cells left behind following the Coolscultping procedure can become larger if this is the case. 

Is there a recovery period?
Since this procedure is completely non-invasive you will be able to return to your daily activities right after. You may notice some redness in the treated area, but this is usually minimal and should not last more than a few hours. You may also notice some swelling or bruising, which will go away in a couple weeks.

Who is a good candidate for Coolsculpting?
You should be healthy and relatively fit, but looking to reduce certain pockets of fat that are difficult to reduce through diet and exercise. However, this is not a procedure for those who are obese.
