You’ve been working on losing weight—and we congratulate you on your discipline, your effort, and your willingness to work toward your goals!

CoolSculpting provides a proven way to greatly reduce or completely eliminate a muffin top, bra puff, and even that extra chin—because less of you is more like you!

Enjoy our blog on how your dream-fulfilling team of providers at Aesthetics 360° can help you give stubborn fat the cold shoulder, helping you become more like the you you’ve always wanted to be.

Why isn’t that fat cooperating?

A healthy diet and exercise can keep you feeling better and looking great. Problems arise, though, when certain fat deposits either won’t decrease at all or aren’t going away fast enough for your goals. There are a number of common reasons that fat hangs on, even though you’re doing your best to get rid of it.


Sometimes that muffin top at the waistline of your jeans is a product of your genes. You may have a body that is predisposed to store fat in specific areas. You probably see those same deposits in your parents or other close family members. That’s a sign genetics are limiting your efforts.


The natural aging process slows down our metabolism, making it harder to lose weight. Your body just doesn’t burn those calories like it used to. 


You may workout to keep physically fit… but do you sneak in food that negates your effort? Or maybe your hobbies have changed, and you find yourself more apt to spend the evening binging a new series instead of biking a new trail. A sedentary lifestyle, poor dietary habits, lack of sleep, and even high stress levels all contribute to your body clinging to that fat.

Literally Stubborn Fat

You may be suffering from fat cells that are quite literally hard to burn. Some fat cells have a higher density of Alpha-2 receptors. These cellular mechanisms tell those cells to store fat for later use. If you have a deposit of fat cells that have higher rates of Alpha-2 receptors, that deposit will resist reduction.

Hormonal Imbalance

Whether caused by aging, illness, pregnancy, or prescriptions, hormonal imbalance can cause your body’s system to not function properly. In this case, your fat reduction efforts may be foiled by your own body ignoring the efforts, or reversing the results. Hormone replacement therapy can help get that balance back on track, but you may still need help getting rid of that extra adipose tissue.

CoolSculpting at A360 can reduce stubborn fat permanently.

CoolSculpting is a body sculpting/body contouring technique that uses cryolipolysis—the freezing of fat cells—to reduce fatty deposits. 

The CoolSculpting Process

CoolSculpting is easy, comfortable, and causes zero to minimal discomfort. You’ll need no anesthesia, there are no incisions made, and you won’t incur any downtime.

First, your treatment area is clearly marked by your highly trained A360 provider. Next, a gel pad and vacuum applicator are positioned, which pulls the fat up into the cooling device.

Once all is ready, controlled cooling begins on the targeted fat, safely freezing and killing the fat cells without harming surrounding tissues. 

At first, you may feel some intense cold, but that sensation usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the treatment area starts to feel numb. A built-in safety feature shuts down the device if the skin gets too cold, helping to keep your skin safe throughout the treatment. During the final stages of the process, you may feel some pulling, tugging, or mild tingling sensations.

When the treatment is finished, you can return to your regular daily activities. Depending on the size and number of treatment areas for your session, your CoolSculpting appointment will take anywhere from 60 to 120+ minutes. Bring a book, scroll through social media, listen to music and chill (so to speak)—go ahead and enjoy this “me time” that’s also “goal time.”

CoolSculpting Results

You may experience temporary numbness, mild redness, and/or slight swelling in the treated areas. Those side effects will gradually dissipate in the next few days or weeks.

In the meantime, your body will naturally flush away the destroyed fat cells, reducing the unwanted fat in the treatment area by up to 20 to 25%. Most patients start to see results begin in 30 days, with peak results showing approximately 120 to 150 days after treatment. Additional CoolSculping sessions can be scheduled to further enhance results. Because each patient is unique, individual results may vary.

Where on my body can I have CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to reduce fat in treatment areas that can include:

  • Chin
  • Upper arms
  • Bra “puff” (underarms)
  • Bra back fat
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks/”love handles”
  • Muffin top
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Fat above the knee
  • Banana roll (area under buttock)


As you can see, by using different size applicators for different locations, your A360 provider can help you fight—and win—the battle of the bulge!

What CoolSculpting Isn’t

Though this amazing treatment can be used in conjunction with weight loss efforts, it’s not in and of itself a weight loss approach. Here’s why.

CoolSculpting can kill targeted fat cells, which your body then naturally flushes. This enhances the contours in that treatment area. But even with up to 20 to 25% of those fat cells gone, you can still gain weight. This might not seem fair, but it’s biology.

This is because the fat cells that survive can grow larger. For example, you may not be aware that sometime during your teen years, the number of fat cells in your body became fixed. That means that whenever you lose or gain weight, it’s not changing the number of fat cells you have, but rather their size. 

When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger. Though CoolSculpting at Aesthetics 360° reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area, which leaves you with fewer cells to store fat, you can still gain weight. CoolSculpting is not weight loss—it’s fat loss.

Your healthy diet and exercise will keep those remaining fat cells from growing, so the improved contours that CoolSculpting delivered will continue to look great.

A backup plan for taking it on the chin.

CoolSculpting has a specialized applicator just for the submental (under the chin) region. This helps to reduce or eliminate the appearance of a double chin.

If you’re not keen on having CoolSculpting done there, you can try Kybella. This treatment injects deoxycholic acid—a natural compound found in your body that dissolves fat—directly into your double-chin. Kybella injections destroy the extra fat, and—the same way as with CoolSculpting—your body naturally flushes away these dead cells. 

Both treatments are non-surgical. However, there are some differences to be considered. 

Differences Between CoolSculpting and Kybella

  1. Kybella is a series of injections you receive specifically to address a double chin. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is a machine with attachments that are placed on the target area, such as the chin, love handles, thighs, and beyond.
  2. CoolSculpting for submental fat reduction usually only requires 1 treatment session to achieve your results. On average, Kybella injections require 2 to 4 treatment sessions for optimal effect.
  3. Full results of CoolSculpting may take 1 to 4 months to show, whereas the results of Kybella can be noticeable 4 to 8 weeks after your final injection.
