CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting

Your Premier CoolSculpting experts in Chicago.

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you'll look and feel great from every angle.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.

You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.

Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you'll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.

Results and patient experience may vary.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side effects?
During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.¹

Botox® & Fillers

Botox® & Fillers

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. Results may vary but the effects can last up to 4 months.

XEOMIN® is a alternative treatment to Botox, that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Let our medical professional decide which would be best to fit your needs.

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.

Dermal fillers can be used to:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars

We carry a variety of Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm,Radiesse, Belotero and others, all with various uses. Let our medical professionals decide which one would FILL your needs.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Let our Medical Professionals evaluate how PrP could benefit you.

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a therapy technique that has been used in Sports Medicine for years by the likes of Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, and Kobe Bryant - just to name a few. The principle behind the procedure is that the platelets in your blood not only help in clotting but also hold the key to growth and rejuvenation in our bodies.

The procedure is simple. Your medical professional will start by removing a syringe of blood from you. Then utilizing a state of the art Centrifuge, the blood is spun twice at high speeds, which separates the components of the blood. By carefully extracting the concentrated platelets from the vial, your medical professional is able to reinject them into your body. Depending on the procedure, individuals have seen accelerated regrowth and healing in an injury. In the case of cosmetic surgery, this procedure convinces your body to heal the treated area, by producing a higher amount of collagen and fatty like cells. The end result is a fuller, more sculpted face. To help increase efficiency, Your Medicos S.C. Doctors follow the procedure with a Micro Needling treatment which also aids in collagen and healing to add a complete volume building matrix.

Liposuction

Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure that slims and reshapes your body by removing unwanted fat beneath the skin. Your Medicos, S.C. can transfer removed fat into other areas of the body, such as face, buttocks, hands or breast.

All liposuction at Your Medicos, S.C. is performed using local anesthetic, which is safer than general anesthesia and reduces recovery time.
Your Medicos, S.C. offers different approaches to liposuction depending on your desired result and body type.

  • Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL): Consists of using a liposuction cannula (thin, hollow tube) that oscillates or vibrates to help break up fatty tissue as it is being removed from the body. It allows for a slightly more gentle technique than traditional liposuction and is especially helpful in areas of dense adipose tissue.
  • Laser Lipo: This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula. This technique makes the fat easier to remove, resulting in a less aggressive procedure, which may lead to faster recovery times. In areas with thin layers of fat, like the face and the neck, the cannula might not be used at all.

Both types of liposuction at Your Medicos work on the same principle of fat removal by suction. First, a solution of “tumescent” (a combination of normal saline, epinephrine to minimize blood loss, and lidocaine to numb the area) is pumped into the area. The fat is then removed by high-powered suction. After the removal of fat cells, you will wear compression garments to maximize the retraction of the skin around the newly contoured area.
