Dr. Jacono and J Spa are excited to offer CoolSculpting from Zeltiq. CoolSculpting is an innovative technology that was developed to help reduce stubborn areas of fat from your body. This non-surgical form of fat reduction uses a cooling technique to “freeze the fat” on trouble areas of the body that are resistant to regular diet and exercise. What makes this so revolutionary is that the fat can safely and permanently reduce fat without and needles, liposuction, surgery, or downtime.
Though CoolSculpting® can produce body sculpting results that are in some ways similar to liposuction surgery, CoolSculpting® treatment takes only an hour per treatment area, with virtually no downtime and no need for any anesthesia. Patients begin to see optimal results 2 to 3 months after treatment. Even though liposuction is typically used to make more specific changes in body contour, it is an invasive procedure with a moderate recovery period. Dr. Jacono can help patients identify which treatment is best suited for their aesthetic goals.
How Does CoolSculpting Work
The CoolSculpting Procedure is based on the proven science of Cryolipolysis, which means that fat cells can be destroyed with a controlled cold temperature without damaging the surrounding tissue. This technology is the result of an innovative discovery by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston which is affiliated with the Harvard Medical School.
What they discovered was that the fat cells directly under the skin were naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold temperatures but did not have any effect on the surrounding tissues. It was confirmed through these Harvard studies that you could effectively freeze fat away without damaging any other tissue. The study also found that once the fat cells were exposed to controlled levels of cooling, those fat cells died and did not come back.
It is the only FDA cleared non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses cooling and freezing of the fat cells in order to eliminate stubborn fat that is difficult to remove through regular exercise and diet.
CoolSculpting results are noticeable and proven and long-lasting. With no downtime, patients can return back to normal daily activities as well. This procedure has even been coined as “The Best Fat-Reducing Treatment” by New Beauty.
Areas of the body that CoolSculpting can reduce fat from include:
- Love Handles
- Inner Thighs
- Outer Thighs
- Back Rolls
Am I a Good CoolSculpting Candidate?
Depending upon the amount of fat reduction you are looking for and the amount of excess fat you are starting with, this procedure can be repeated more in order to reach your body sculpting goals.
The best candidates are healthy individuals within a good weight range, preferably within 30 pounds of their ideal weight.
The procedure is appropriate for both men and women.
Please keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not intended for weight loss. Obese individuals or persons needing to lose a considerable amount of weight are not advised to have the treatment done. The procedure works best to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat on the body that are resistant to typical diet and exercise efforts, such as saddlebags or love handles.

What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical form of fat reduction designed to safely and permanently reduce the amount of fat in certain areas of your body. Its technical name is Cryolipolysis which is also known as fat freezing. Designed to target stubborn areas of fat with little to no downtime.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting uses controlled cold temperatures to isolate and freeze fat cells to destroy them without damaging the surrounding tissue. The cold temperature only damages and breaks up the fat cells and so there is no damage to any other type of cell.
How long do CoolSculpting sessions take?
A CoolSculpting session is usually around 2 hours long but can take up to 4 hours for larger treatment areas. During these sessions, the patient can check emails, read a book or just relax.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
Pain tolerance is unique from person to person. However, some patients have experienced some slight discomfort during the first 5 minutes. When the cold takes over there is a temporary feeling of numbness.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is FDA cleared and safe for most healthy adults. There are very few cases that have experienced side effects from CoolSculpting. However, a review of your medical history should be done to ensure this procedure is safe for you.
How long does it take to recover?
There is very little to no recovery time for CoolSculpting. You can experience some tenderness and a little soreness following your treatment, but you should be able to resume all normal daily activities.
Is CoolSculpting right for me?
To find out if CoolSculpting is right for you, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Jacono to see if you are a good candidate.
How soon will I see results?
You can begin to see some slight results in about 4 hours. However, continuous and gradual changes and results will be happening daily. This is due to the fact that the fat will be slowly leaving your body culminating to your final results which may take 3-4 months.
How long do the effects of CoolSculpting last?
The amazing thing about Coolsculpting is that it is non-invasive and the results are permanent. When the fat cells are destroyed, they do not come back. However, your lifestyle and exercise routine can help improve the results achieved.
Can I undergo more than one CoolSculpting treatment?
CoolSculpting can be repeated to gain additional benefits to your treatment areas. During your consultation, you and your provider will go over your goals for the treatment and decide what regime you would most benefit from.
What happens to the skin after CoolSculpting?
Your skin and body should look and feel slimmer in the treated areas. The skin remains the same as only the underlying fat cells are affected. If you are concerned about loose or sagging skin your provider can help with many tips before and after the procedure.
Can you have CoolSculpting following surgical procedures like liposuction or a tummy tuck?
It is generally advised to wait some weeks after liposuction or tummy tuck before beginning with CoolSculpting. It should be safe to start your treatment after that and should always consult with your provider for permission.
Where does the fat go?
The fat is slowly reabsorbed back into the body and then excreted. These fat cells are not regenerated, they are eliminated by the body in a very gradual and safe manner in the course of several weeks.
How much weight will I lose after CoolSculpting?
You will not lose weight from CoolSculpting, but you will see a change in your shape and should notice that your clothes fit looser in your treatment area. The purpose of the treatment is fat reduction which is different from weight loss since the fat cells do not return.
