If diets and exercise programs work to temporarily reduce your unwanted fat, but your fat returns again and again, you may want to consider CoolSculpting. At Doctor’s Approach in Okemos, Michigan, we are proud to offer CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ. This breakthrough, non-invasive technology freezes away stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is designed to target and cool unwanted fat cells in areas you want to improve. Results are effective and natural-looking. Each CoolSculpting procedure results in an average 20 percent reduction of fat in the treated area.
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 an applicator device that connects to a hose. Cold air travels through the hose and enters the applicator, which can then freeze 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 Doctor’s Approach, we work to ensure patients are comfortable. Most tell us CoolSculpting is not painful.

CoolSculpting’s benefits include:
- No need for surgery.
- No use of needles.
- No recovery time.
Results are often noticeable just three weeks following treatment. And most people see results continue to improve in the months that follow.

CoolMini™ for Chin Fat
At Doctor’s Approach, we also use the CoolMini™ applicator with our CoolSculpting® system for fat reduction underneath the chin. Also known as submental fat, this area of the lower face is difficult to target with diet and exercise and has traditionally required surgical procedures to correct. With CoolMini™, fat cells can now be frozen in the same way as a regular CoolSculpting® session. With visible results in as little as one or two sessions and a general patient satisfaction rate of over 80 percent, submental fat reduction with the CoolMini™ is now the number one non-invasive fat reduction treatment for this cosmetic concern.
Fat cells freeze and crystalize. After approximately two months, these cells should die off. After these fat cells are dead, your immune system uses enzymes to remove them.
If you do put on weight after CoolSculpting treatment, the new fat cells will emerge in areas of your body that were not treated.
If you want to lose unattractive fat and have tried exercise regimens and diet, only to fail, CoolSculpting can help you finally win the battle. To learn the benefits of CoolSculpting and to schedule your initial appointment, contact Doctor’s Approach today.
Constant exercise and dieting that don’t produce desired results can lead to frustration and emotional pain. Our professional and friendly team at Doctor’s Approach is ready to help you begin your journey to a better-looking and healthier you.
