What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment that sculpts and tightens the body by freezing unwanted fat cells. The procedure uses monitored cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze and eliminate fat cells, which can help tone and contour the body. At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, our skilled team uses advanced CoolSculpting to help you attain your cosmetic and health goals. Please schedule an appointment and learn more about CoolSculpting. We are dedicated to helping you enhance your natural beauty.

Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?
Even though this innovative technique is safe and effective for most women and men of all age groups, those likely to benefit from CoolSculpting include:
- Patients at or near their ideal weight
- Patients who have stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to natural weight loss efforts
- Patients who are not ideal candidates for more invasive procedures
- Patients who have realistic expectations for the results of their treatment
CoolSculpting candidates should not have chronic pain conditions or lymphatic issues.
How does CoolSculpting work?
During your consultation with one of our skilled team members, we will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. Once we have completed your consultation, we will take you back to one of our spacious treatment rooms and ask you to relax on a comfortable chair. Next, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece is placed on the treatment area. The specialized handpiece will emit cryolipolysis or cooling technology to target and freeze the fat. You will likely feel a cooling sensation, but typically, this does not cause any pain. Because the applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat cells toward the treatment area, you will feel a slight pulling or stinging, but these are completely normal feelings.
What can I Expect after coolsculpting?
Since the CoolSculpting is nonsurgical, you can return to daily activities following your treatment. Side effects of the procedure usually include stinging, redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness near the treatment site. In the next couple of days, these symptoms should subside on their own. Generally, patients will notice results after three weeks. You should experience optimal results within 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment. To achieve your desired results, we will help you determine how many follow-up treatments you may need.
What results should I expect with CoolSculpting?
Following your treatment plan, you should notice a tighter body. It generally takes a 2 – 4 month period to see your optimal results. Also, you may need more than one procedure to get the results you desire.
Can I get rid of a double chin with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, innovative treatment that can reduce fat cells underneath the chin. If you have this cosmetic concern, please let us know during your consultation, so we can build it into your treatment plan.
How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?
Based on the location of the unwanted fat and the size of your treatment area, you may require three sessions. However, we can determine the best amount after reviewing your concerns.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is completely safe when it is done by a qualified healthcare provider. The technology works naturally with your body to remove fat cells, and there are no incisions or needles involved. Our team at JEM Medspa has extensive training and experience with CoolSculpting, so you can feel confident in our care.
How can I reduce my chances of side effects?
It is important to follow all aftercare instructions as provided by our team in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL.
