CoolSculpting is an innovative FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that uses cooling technology to target and destroy fat cells. When the fat cells are destroyed, the body eliminates them through its natural cleansing channels. Dr. Ronald Russo is pleased to offer CoolSculpting at Rejuvenis Beauty in Champaign, Illinois.
Originally developed as a body contouring treatment, CoolScuplting can deliver impressive results in the the hips, thighs, and abdomen area. Now, with the introduction of the specially designed CoolMini applicator, it is possible to reduce a double chin and contour the neck.
During a CoolScupting treatment, a gel sheet is placed on the treatment area to protect the skin. The applicator is applied and the pocket of fat beneath the chin is drawn away from your neck and towards the applicator via a vacuum function. The cooling mechanism is then activated and the fat cells are progressively frozen. No anesthesia is needed and most patients can simply relax during the treatment.
Because CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment, there is no recovery period involved. After your appointment, you can resume your normal day-to-day activities–no downtime necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does CoolSculpting hurt?
At the beginning of your treatment, you will feel a cold sensation and some pressure. As the treatment proceeds, the sensation will become less intense. You may experience a mild tugging feeling and numbness, but most patients report do not report serious discomfort.
How long does the treatment take? An average treatment takes about an hour. To address a double chin, one to two treatments are typically necessary.
