What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is the number one non-surgical fat reduction treatment that contours your body safely and effectively, all with little or no downtime. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen, and flank. It can also treat bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, upper arm, and lax tissues in the submental area. Clinical trials have demonstrated CoolSculpting® in Lackawanna County to be safe and effective in reducing fat in all of these areas.

The number of treatments you need depends on the areas you want to be treated and the desired results you want to achieve. Many patients choose to do CoolSculpting® on multiple areas of the body to reach their ideal outcome.

You will meet board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Bruno II, for your consult. He will determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting® and will work with you to find a personalized treatment that fits your body.

How Do CoolSculpting® Treatments in NEPA Work?

Each CoolSculpting® treatment is different, so your treatment will vary based on the areas of the body you want to be treated, and how many you plan on doing. Depending on the location, the procedure can be done in as little as 35 minutes. If you plan on multiple treatments in one session, expect to spend more time in the office.

During your CoolSculpting® treatment, the applicator will be placed on the treatment area, and you will experience a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body. The signature cooling effect will follow this sensation. While undergoing CoolSculpting® treatment near Scranton, PA, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, or cramping at the treatment site. These sensations will subside in 5-10 minutes after the area becomes numb.

Following the procedure, you may experience the following temporary side effects:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blanching
  • Bruising
  • Firmness
  • Tingling
  • Stinging
  • Tenderness
  • Cramping
  • Aching
  • Itching
  • Skin Sensitivity
  • Throat Fullness

After the applicator is detached, Dr. Bruno will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction process. Then, you will be free to go!

CoolSculpting® Results in Lackawanna County

While you will see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area after a single session, your actual results may vary based on your body and the area being treated. Dr. Bruno will work with you to determine if additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal. You’ll start to see changes as soon as 1-3 months post-treatment. Final results may take 6 months or more.

CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis, which is the technical way to say “fat-freezing.” When fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated from your body. This process happens gradually, and you should not notice a difference in your day-to-day life.
