Did you miss our Father’s Day Facebook Live with Dr. Joel Schlessinger? Watch out ladies, men are getting CoolSculpting® too! We were lucky enough to see two COOL dudes fight stubborn fat this Father’s Day with the nonsurgical, fat reduction treatment CoolSculpting®. Noah and Flip spent their June afternoon freezing away stubborn fat on 2 of our 9 FDA-cleared treatment areas—the abdomen and the submental area.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his team at Lovely Skin show us the ins and outs of the treatment, while answering some of your most frequently asked questions! With over 7 million treatments worldwide, take a closer look at the fat-reduction treatment people have been talking about.
Where Can the CoolSculpting® Treatment Reduce Fat On My Body?
CoolSculpting® is cleared to treat 9 different areas: the abdomen, flanks, banana roll, thighs, bra fat, upper arms, back, the submental (under the chin) and the submandibular areas (below the jawline). Dr. Joel Schlessinger says that often times his patients are so happy with their results in one area, they come back for more. Now that’s COOL!
“People come back for more treatments because they had such a great experience.”

I Don't Like My Double Chin. Can The CoolSculpting® Treatment Help Me Lose It?
We’ve got some COOL news! There are now even more benefits to treating your double chin with CoolSculpting®. Not only can you reduce fat beneath the chin, but you can also improve the appearance of lax tissue in the treated submental area. With a CoolSculpting® treatment, you can lose up to 20%-25% of the fat in the treated area.
What Happens to the Skin, Nerves, and Muscles Near the Treated Area?
CoolSculpting® uses a unique technology called cryolipolysis. This technology enables precise cooling and provides safety by only affecting fat cells while sparing skin, nerves, and muscle. Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains that the fat cells in our body freeze at a warmer temperature than the rest of our body. This allows for targeted freezing of the fat cells and optimal results.
“[CoolSculpting] is something that people are excited to have done…”
- Dr. Joel Schlessinger
Is The Treated Fat Gone For Good?
The CoolSculpting® technology is really something amazing in that once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good. Keep in mind, however, CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment; it is a fat reduction treatment. The CoolSculpting® procedure reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area, and your remaining fat cells can still function as normal, being subject to getting bigger or smaller depending on weight gain or loss.
