The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all traditional efforts like diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting – so you'll look great from every angle. In our Collegeville and Villanova offices, Bryn Mawr Dermatology provides this effective and popular fat-freezing technology to help patients achieve their body contouring goals.

Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?
This non-invasive procedure can provide excellent results for many patients, especially those who want to treat specific problem areas of the body, without disrupting their schedule to accommodate recovery for a surgical procedure, such as liposuction. As CoolSculpting was not designed as a weight loss mechanism, ideal patients should be close to their ideal weight, lead a healthy lifestyle, and not be in the process of losing or gaining weight. Each treatment eliminates about 25% of fat in the targeted area, which is perfect for getting rid of pesky, exercise-resistant fat. Whether its belly fat, saddle bags, love handles or arm flab that makes getting into a swimsuit barely bearable, there is a personalized CoolSculpting treatment for you.
If you have a healthy exercise routine but are having a hard time sculpting your body in certain areas, or if you’ve always had trouble with stubborn fat, CoolSculpting can be the ideal way to achieve slimmer body contours. Treatment is perfect for:
- Double chin
- Arm flab
- Armpit pooch
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Love handles or flanks
- Saddle bags
- Banana roll
- Inner thigh
- Knee chub
Personalized Consultations for Body Contouring
Your treatment plan begins with a personalized, one-on-one consultation with our highly trained and friendly professionals. We carefully review your medical history, current body contouring efforts, and certain areas of the body that are causing the most concern. To determine the best treatment with CoolSculpting, our team identifies the extent of fat to be minimized from the selected areas and how many sessions are required to create the desired body contours.
As CoolSculpting’s fees are based on the number of paddles (applicators) needed, we can determine the cost of your body contouring treatment plan and design care based on what works best for your budget and aesthetic goals. Patients leave their consultations at our offices knowing exactly what to expect and feeling confident in their treatments.
Your CoolSculpting Procedure at Bryn Mawr Dermatology
Fat freezing with CoolSculpting technology is quick and convenient. You can relax comfortably while the applicators are placed and go to work. You will feel a cooling sensation at the treatment site, which eventually creates a mild feeling of numbness. A gentle vacuum effect is created to bring the soft tissue as close as possible to the cooling created by the applicator.
The temperature levels are precisely controlled by the CoolSculpting equipment, which is why this treatment is effective and simply applying cold packs to the skin at home does not create fat loss. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin, muscle and nerve tissue, and CoolSculpting is calibrated to affect fat cells only. After the applicators are removed, post-treatment massage is provided as an important part of the process. This may feel slightly uncomfortable but is generally well-tolerated.
What to Expect from your Fat Freezing Results
You can return home and to your normal routine immediately after your procedure. Some numbness and tingling may linger, but these symptoms are temporary and resolve with time. Fat cells affected by the freezing process are naturally eliminated by the body through the lymphatic system. This creates gradual results that mature over the weeks following your procedure. Patients will see final results from their CoolSculpting treatment 3 months after their treatment(s). While this seems like a long time to wait, our patients report that they love watching their results develop with time.
Coolsculpting produces smooth results and does not create lumpy or uneven skin texture, which some patients are fearful of when approaching fat removal treatment.
