A recent Inside Edition segment features Mama June, of Honey Boo Boo reality TV fame and how CoolSculpting helped her eliminate fat after dramatic weight loss.
After a significant 150 pound weight loss, Mama June still had one issue that wouldn’t go away: a double chin that jiggles. So she sought out the help of Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Sheila Nazarian for a non-surgical procedure called “CoolSculpting,” which kills fat by freezing it.
“It’s going to get a little cold, “said the doctor. “She explained further that fat freezes at a higher temperature than the skin or blood vessels or nerves, so that this technology will get the temperature just far [enough], so that the fat dies and no side effects.”
It will take Mama June about eight weeks to see the results, according to Dr. Nazarian.

What is CoolSculpting?
In simple terms, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that freezes fat cells, causing them to die, and gradually be eliminated by the body.
How CoolSculpting Works
The CoolSculpting treatment involves a paddle-shaped applicator attached to a hose that supplies the cold. This treatment device has two panels with 3,000 sensors per side. To help protect the skin, gel is placed over the treated area, then the CoolSculpting device is applied and treatment begins. Patients may experience an initial feeling of intense cold accompanied by stinging, tingling, pain or cramping sensation. This is normal and is reduced, or goes away, as the area becomes numb.
When the treatment time is over, the device is removed, and the practitioner massages the treated area to restore normal flow of blood. The treated area may be sensitive and a slight stinging or cramping may be experienced. A temporary whitening or redness of the treated area, or even perhaps stiffness, is not unusual. However, normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting provides a non-surgical alternative to the removal of excess subdermal fat. The extreme cold and body’s own metabolism are used to flush out the frozen fat cells which leads to visible smoothing. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. And no downtime, which means a faster return to the normal activities of your daily life. No need to miss out on the fun or work!
Changes can be seen within a few weeks after treatment, and after 1-3 months you will see the most dramatic results!
