At Coastal Dermatology and Medspa, our priority is to deliver quality dermatology care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.
Some of us guys do a lot to stay in shape…eat right, workout…but certain areas stay fat. For many of us, genetics were not kind, or we just do not have what it takes to stay in shape. If you’re bothered by those inches that you can’t seem to shake or would just like to change your shape without a lot of effort, CoolSculpting at Krch Aesthetic Medicine is the solution you need. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that eliminates unwanted fat and helps you sculpt the leaner figure you’ve wanted to achieve. Genetics and life circumstances have determined much of our physical shape but CoolSculpting is an exciting way to look better and finally beat what life has forced on us…permanently!
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an advanced body contouring treatment that freezes away unwanted fat in common problem areas. CoolSculpting® can be used to treat areas notoriously hard to target with diet and exercise including:
- Upper and lower back
- Sides and flanks
It is an effective, noninvasive, technologically advanced, and permanent approach for eliminating fat. CoolSculpting has become the leading alternative to liposuction and other non-surgical fat reduction procedures, giving patients the results, they want without downtime or post-surgical pain.
How does CoolSculpting® work?
CoolSculpting uses precise cold temperatures to freeze unwanted fat cells in a process known as cryolipolysis. Compared to other tissues, fat cells are more susceptible to cold, allowing safe elimination of stubborn fat without harming the surrounding non-fat tissues. As the treated fat cells succumb to the process, they are naturally absorbed and eliminated, leaving tighter skin, lean lines, and revealing underlying muscle.
Is CoolSculpting® right for me?
CoolSculpting is an effective fat-reduction treatment. It sculpts the body through permanent fat elimination. It is not a weight-loss solution and cannot replace diet or exercise for weight loss of deeper fat layers that liposuction or CoolSculpting can’t get. Good candidates have stubborn pockets of fat that can be pinched. If you struggle with unwanted fat and want to reshape your body, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you:
- Want a leaner body
- Want to improve skin tone and tightness to the leaner area
- Want to avoid invasive surgery
The experts at Krch Aesthetic Medicine can help determine if CoolSculpting is right for you during an in-person or virtual consultation. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations, as well as ask any questions. This will allow us to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your body.

Your CoolSculpting® at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE
CoolSculpting is a comfortable, noninvasive treatment that uses precision cold technology to target unwanted fat without the need anesthesia and without causing scarring and pain that can result from liposuction.
During your procedure, you’ll sit back and relax as the device is applied to your body, utilizing gentle suction to accurately direct cold temperatures to treatment areas. You may feel some tugging or pulling as the device creates a gentle vacuum, but as the treatment progresses, targeted areas become numb and alleviate any discomfort. Some areas may be more sensitive to the cooling sensation, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated with most patients comparing it to the application of an ice pack.
Depending on your goals and the areas being treated, you can expect your CoolSculpting session to take only about 45 minutes to complete. Larger treatment areas may take longer, while smaller areas like the chin are relatively quick. Although you may feel slightly sore after your treatment, there is no downtime or recovery needed with CoolSculpting. Afterward, you’ll be free to return home and resume all normal activities with minimal disruption to your daily routine. Typically, physically active people see results much faster sometimes in as little as 2 weeks compared to the typical 8-12 weeks most people see results! After CoolSculpting is a great time to boost your physical activity but you don’t have to! Maintain your weight and the results will come.
What kind of results can I expect from CoolSculpting®?
In the weeks following your CoolSculpting treatment, you will notice the improvement to your body as treated fat cells are naturally eliminated. For the next 12 weeks, results will continue to develop, with most patients reporting a dramatic improvement after eight weeks. Although this process can take some time, your results will be permanent since fat cells can’t regrow once they’re removed.
Each treatment will reduce about 20-25% of fat in the treated area. Remaining fat cells in the area can grow if you gain weight offsetting what has been coolsculpted. To ensure an optimal outcome and maintain a lean shape, it’s still important to eat healthily, get regular exercise, or at least maintain your weight.
There are some important things to understand about fat cells with any procedure you are considering. Most laser or heat technologies for fat reduction will not remove fat cells but will only decrease fat cell size temporarily. You will need multiple regular treatments frequently to maintain results with these laser or hot technologies. Only CoolSculpting and liposuction permanently reduce the number of fat cells.
Both procedures will leave fat cells in the area. Remaining fat cells will expand with significant weight gain offsetting your initial results. A weight gain of 10-15 pounds will offset the results of all body sculpting procedures, even liposuction. Liposuction results are immediate but with significant pain and 2 weeks of downtime and wearing uncomfortable compression garments or bandages. Coolsculpting results occur quickly in just 2-8 weeks with little discomfort and no downtime.
If you have multiple problem areas or want to enhance your previous results, additional sessions are recommended. Most patients receive two to four CoolSculpting treatments to achieve their ideal body. You tell us what you want to achieve and we will tell you how many sessions you need.
Remember each time an area is treated we are reducing 20-25% more of the fat cells in the area so each treatment reduces the ability of the remaining fat cells to enlarge from any future weight gain. More treatments not only provide more leanness, but it also increases your chance of maintaining those lines if you were to gain weight. Any remaining fat cells can expand with weight gain offsetting your results regardless of what procedure you chose to slim your contours.
Since every patient is unique, Dr. Krch and his team will develop a personalized treatment plan just for you and recommend the number of treatments that will produce an optimal outcome.
