CoolSculpting & Body Contouring Q & A

What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure to reduce fat in certain targeted areas.

It aims to reshape body contours and provide the localized reduction of fat deposits in just one to three hours.

Coolsculpting works best on areas of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The recovery time is minimal, and you can typically return to your daily activities shortly after.

Coolsculpting works in areas such as the:

  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Chin area
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper and lower abdomen

How does Coolsculpting work?

The Coolsculpting procedure uses the science of cryolipolysis — controlled cooling that targets and kills cells of subcutaneous fat tissue without damaging your overlying skin.

Dr. Chin uses a handheld device with applicators resembling the nozzles of a vacuum cleaner to perform the procedure.

Dr. Chin applies a gel pad and an applicator to your target area and the applicator delivers the controlled cooling. Dr. Chin administers the suction and cooling technology and gently moves the device over your skin.

Dr. Chin typically leaves the device on your skin for about an hour before removing the applicators and massaging the area to break up the deep tissue and help your body start to absorb the destroyed fat cells.

What is PHYSIQ?

PHYSIQ body contouring targets tissues and muscle with its unique STEP technology. STEP programs are customized sequences of timed phases of deep heat and muscle stimulation.  The deep heat phase utilizes super luminescent diode matrix (SDM) which targets tissue while electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) creates muscle contractions to re-educate the muscle in the targeted area.  There is no downtime with PHYSIQ and the recommendation is 5 sessions with each session spaced two weeks apart.
