CoolSculpting, offered in Baltimore at Belcara Health, is a safe, FDA-cleared, and clinically proven technology that allows you to achieve in 1 hour what years of diet and exercise could not. Love handles, muffin tops, belly pouches–all those areas of unwanted, stubborn fat can now be addressed without surgery, needles, or downtime.

CoolSculpting works by freezing targeted fat cells, which are then naturally flushed out of your body. This groundbreaking technology only targets fat cells, so your skin, muscle, and other tissues remain unaffected and healthy. There are no incisions and no downtime. Results look completely natural and can be noticeable in as early as 3 weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after 1 to 3 months.

What are the benefits of fat reduction with CoolSculpting?

  • No needles, incisions, scalpels, or scars
  • FDA cleared and proven to be safe and effective
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No downtime
  • Predictable results

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting technology involves a process called cryolipolysis, which freezes fat cells (cryo) to the point where the fat cells break down (lipolysis) without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue or skin. Cryolipolysis is one of the most studied nonsurgical techniques used for body contouring and has proven to be very effective at destroying fat cells.

Which areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?

At Belcara Health, we offer a wide variety of sizes and styles of CoolSculpting applicators, which allows us to target more areas of your body, address your concerns more effectively and provide you with better results.

  • Applicator paddles: For “pinchable” fat, we use a vacuum suction type of applicators with 2 connected paddles available in small and large sizes. This type of applicator works well for the upper and lower abdomen, bra-rolls, hips, and flanks.
  • Applicator pads: For “non-pinchable” fat, we use a flat applicator. This works well for the outer and inner thighs, upper and lower abdomen, hips and upper back.

Your medical aesthetician will recommend the applicator size and type that will be most effective for your body and contouring goals.

How is the CoolSculping procedure performed?

CoolSculpting treatments are completed in about 1 hour. During your procedure, the appropriate applicator(s) will be applied to your area(s) of concern. During the first 5 to 10 minutes, you may feel some pressure and intense cold. For the remainder of the time, you should feel only slight pressure and can enjoy a movie on one of our iPads, read a book, or simply relax. Your treatment ends with a gentle massage of the targeted area so that the frozen fat cell crystals can be broken up for faster processing by your body’s cleansing processes. You can return to your regular routine immediately.

What results can I expect with CoolSculpting?

Each treatment removes an average of 25% of excess fat in the treated area, although experiences vary. Most patients require a package of treatments to achieve their desired results. We will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. You should begin to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment and will continue to experience the most dramatic results after 3 months. But your body will still be flushing away treated fat cells for up to 6 months after treatment.

Common Questions About CoolSculpting

What is DualSculpting?

DualSculpting is CoolSculpting times 2! Got only one love handle to lose? We didn’t think so. With 2 CoolSculpting machines, we can treat 2 separate areas at once, in a speedy treatment session we call DualSculpting. This lets you target stubborn fat on both sides of your body during a single appointment, saving valuable time and money.

What is CoolMini?

CoolMini refers to applicators that are specially designed to remove unwanted fat from smaller areas, such as your knees, chin, neck, and jawline. The shape, size, and curvature of the CoolMini applicator allow us to target these smaller areas to create a smoother, trimmer, more contoured appearance.

The size, shape, and curve of the CoolMini make it highly effective for treating the fat under the chin (submental) that causes the dreaded “double-chin.” Just like CoolSculpting, the CoolMini freezes away fat for a more youthful, contoured jawline.

Is there anything CoolSculpting can’t do?

As fantastic as this procedure is, it’s not the solution for every patient or goal. It won’t help you lose a lot of weight. Instead, CoolSculpting targets specific areas of fat and is an excellent tool for putting the finishing touches on your body once you’ve achieved a healthy weight. It’s also not a great option for treating cellulite. While CoolSculpting exclusively targets fat cells, it doesn’t dismantle the connective tissue that causes cellulite.

Is CoolSculpting better than liposuction?

CoolSculpting and liposuction both have the same goal of targeted fat reduction and both provide incredible results. However, they each have their advantages and achieve results in very different ways as outlined in the illustration.
