Freezing Your Fat – Body Slimming with CoolSculpting
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a popular body slimming, non-surgical treatment that freezes fat cells to improve areas of concerns of unwanted, stubborn fat that isn’t resolved by diet and exercise. This non-invasive treatment targets and cools the layer of fat under the skin, without discomfort or harmful side effects with the help of CoolSculpting’s controlled medical device. Patient safety is our number one priority, so we chose the one system that automatically shuts down if the built-in sensors detect the skin getting too cold. In addition, at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, our Bellevue CoolSculpting specialists are expertly trained to provide a successful and comfortable procedure for each patient.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting utilizes state-of-the-art technology, scientifically proven Cryolipolysis. This cooling technique targets fat cells with low temperatures, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue, while killing off specific unwanted fat cells. Once the fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated by the body. Once these fat cells are eliminated, fat cells do not return, potentially providing long-lasting results. Generally, patients see results as early as three weeks after their treatment, but the final results should be seen up to three to four months after treatment, giving time for the body to naturally process the dead fat cells.
What is the CoolSculpting treatment like?
During your CoolSculpting consultation, one of our Bellevue CoolSculpting Specialists will discuss a treatment plan based on your personal aesthetic goals. We will help you determine treatment areas, the number of treatments necessary to achieve your goals, and the type of CoolSculpting applicator needed. To begin the treatment, gel or a gel pad will be applied with the applicator to the area of unwanted fat. Some treatments may require a vacuum, which will draw your skin’s tissue up into an applicator cup. This may feel like someone is tugging or pulling on your skin, but it is generally tolerable.
Cooling then will start soon after, which may feel intense, but will subside within 10 minutes once the treatment area is numb. Depending on your treatment area(s), a typically treatment may last 30 to 60 minutes. At our medispa in Bellevue, we want to ensure you’re comfortable as possible during your procedure, so feel free to enjoy a nap, read a book, or relax during your treatment. Once the procedure is complete, the applicator is removed. For some patients, they notice a frozen bulge. Our Bellevue CoolSculpting Specialist may warm the area by manually massaging and smoothing it out. CoolSculpting does not require downtime and many patients return to work after their treatment. Soon, you’ll experience a reduction in the treatment of a visible bulge!
What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

Unfortunately, this treatment is not for everyone. CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity. It is also not suited for those with a medical history that indicates the body cannot handle cold temperatures. Some of these conditions, disorders, and diseases include cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, and cold agglutinin disease.
How Much Will It Cost to Achieve My Desired Look?
At your consultation, you and your Bellevue CoolSculpting Specialist will determine the specifics of your treatment, including the number of treatments that will be needed and pricing.
