CoolSculpting in Chicago, IL
What is CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting (Cryolipolysis) is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes fat-freezing technology to freeze fat cells. After the CoolSculpt freezes your fat cells, your body naturally eliminates the cell resulting in a reduction of fat in the treated area. CoolSculpting requires little downtime, it’s a nice treatment for your lunch break!

What is CoolSculpting Elite
Introducing CoolSculpting Elite, now available in our office. CoolSculpting Elite is the latest FDA-Cleared non-invasive fat reduction treatment through cryolipolysis (fat freezing). Like CoolSculpting, CoolSculpting Elite targets unwanted fat and freezes it, killing off the fat cells. The treated cells are then naturally absorbed over the next few weeks by the body and disposed of.

How does Dr. Shah and Dr. Chughtai differ in their CoolSculpting practice?
Dr. Shah and Dr. Chughtai utilize a combination of a Radio Frequency based system (BodyFX) with electroporation prior to use of CoolSculpting, following it with a thermally controlled Radio Frequency applicator. With use of this combination we have found greater results due to the underlying science.
See how to get the most out of your CoolSculpting treatment with a process we call “Coolsculpting” below!
We call this protocol Coolsculpting.
Dr. Shah and Dr. Chughtai are the developers of CoolSculpting. They are the only office to date that uses this protocol. The CoolSculpting protocol is a combination of two leading therapy treatments.
Step 1: BodyFX
Fat is heated to 42 degrees centigrade. The use of electroporation allows for rupture of the adipocytes and at a depth of 2mm fat is heated and remodeled.
Step 2: CoolSculpting
Then freezes the tissues to -7 degrees Centigrade using the newest advantage applicators and protocol. Fat that lies deeper than the Radio Frequency is targeted allowing for two levels of fat reduction.
Step 3: Forma
Radio Frequency massage is used at 38 degrees centigrade to promote greater absorption of the fat cells. Forma has created more profound results in patients seeking to get rid of stubborn fat.

A recent study demonstrated a conformable suction which can treat non-pinchable fat of the abdomen area. In this study call participants need 2 treatments but all were satisfied with outcomes.
Different clinical tissues respond to cold. Fat cells are susceptible to cooling compared to other cells and can result in loss of fat. the cooling triggers apoptosis of the adipocytes and this causes an inflammatory response and promotes slow eating by the macrophages.
After an intervention the apoptosis of the fat cells causes collagen to increase and thickening of the fibrous septa resulting in fat layer reduction.
Typically it takes about 4 months where patients can see about 20-26% reduction in the treated area.
CoolSculpting is thought to be more effective than these modalities in head to head studies.
A study found in reduction of fat in adolescents consistent wand satisfactory results.
A common question we get asked a lot is: Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting? Below is a list of who is an ideal candidate and who is not for CoolSculpting.
Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting
-Odeal for discrete fat
-Does not treat obesity
-Less effective in patients with more fat due to temperature not reaching peak temps
-Age is not a factor
-Skin laxity is not an issue- thought to cause skin tightness by stimulating collagen and improves skin flaccidity
Not an Ideal candidate for CoolSculpting
-Poor renal function
-Varicose vein dermatitis
-Positive rheumatoid factor (hepatitis , sjorgens, lupus)
-Increased liver enzymes
-Excessive visceral fat
-Peripheral circulation issue
-Open or infected wounds
It is thought to tighten the skin by production of collagen. Ultrasound imaging by Drs. Bloom and bernstein demonstrated thickening of the dermis
A study by Meyer, et al demonstrated destruction of fat in a patient who had previously undergone CoolSculpting when the fat from a tummy tuck was examined. Fibrosis or thickening of the skin was observed.
Patient with localized adiposity who seeks treatment. This protocol consists of identification, anamnesis, physical examination, measurements, and tests. Ideally, an evaluation should be performed before treatment, with follow-up with reassessments in the middle and at the end of treatment. Basic anamnesis information should be collected, such as main complaint, situational background, eating and social habits (smoking and alcoholism), use of medication, sleep quality, and physical exercise.
During the physical examination, the following things are observed: body shape and presence of associated aesthetic dysfunctions (stretch marks, cellulite, tissue flaccidity, skin trophism, muscular strength, and painful sensitivity). In addition, body measurements are also carried out with the use of an adipometer, a dermographic pencil, and tape measure
Contrast cryolipolysis is the use of combination of radiofrequency and cryolipolysis in a specific pattern. Contrast cryolipolysis theoretically promotes blood reperfusion. Contrast reperfusion promotes an immediate effect that accelerates the inflammatory response. Limited studies have taken place on contrast cryolipolysis and most have included the use of a polarys heating device similar to a topically placed rf probe.
A recent protocol was discovered when Neil Saddick of NY and authors studied cryolipolysis and a form of injection lipolysis (similar to kybella). They found a dramatic reduction in fat without side effects. Based on this study and our protocols, combination of kybella and CoolSculpting can be performed at the same visit.
Zimmer lipo is a competitor to CoolSculpting released in non-US markets. Z wave lipo typically takes 60-90 minutes per cycle while CoolSculpting advantage takes around 35 minutes per cycle
Z wave pro use shock waves to help break up the fat after using CoolSculpting. It is incorporated.
CoolSculpting has built in safety mechanisms which cause it to shut off making it the safes device.
