CoolSculpting® is the most recognized and successful non-invasive technique for permanent fat removal. We can sculpt your body, even stubborn areas, without surgery or downtime. Cryolipolysis is the destruction of fat cells using carefully applied cold technology to permanently remove fat cells. The effect of cold on fat cells was developed after 2 Harvard MD’s noticed that children that sucked on popsicles permanently loss the fat cells in their cheeks. No other tissue was affected by the cold. Coolsculpting® also only removes fat cells leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. Once the fat is destroyed it is absorbed by the body.
Located in North Central Phoenix, Arizona, krch Aesthetic Medicine under the direction of Dr. Ryan Krch, provides body sculpting by Coolsculpt®. Dr. Krch started with body sculpting over 15 years ago using mesotherapy. CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and can be used in large areas like inner and outer thighs, abdomens, and flanks. Coolsculpt® works for smaller areas too like under chins, arms, bra fat, and banana rolls. Krch Aesthetic Medicine has the latest Coolsculpt® device which provides shorter procedure times and more effective results. Coolsculpting® is FDA cleared for fat removal in the areas noted and for skin tightening and permanent fat removal under the chin. We can sculpt your chin and create a stunning new neckline.

BODY SCULPTING SYNERGISM: FIRE AND ICE
Dr. Ryan is always looking for synergism. He combines treatments to get the best effect with the latest aesthetic technologies. Radio frequency (RF) body sculpting reduces fat cell size and is amazing at tightening skin. RF body sculpting is a warm technology and feels like a warm stone massage. Whenever volume is decreased, like in cryolipolysis, the overlying skin can become loose. This is an aesthetic concern for older individuals or individuals that have lost skin structure. RF body sculpting combined with Coolsculpting® provides the fastest results and the best skin-tightening so as you shrink your skin tightens up. These combined synergistic procedures are Fire and Ice Body Sculpting. krch Aesthetic Medicine provides both at a cost that most clinics and med spas charge for just Coolsculpting®. We like to create value for our patients. Schedule a consultation to learn more about Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting®, RF Body Sculpting, and the ultimate combination of these, Fire and Ice Body Sculpting.
While this noninvasive technique has proven successful for individuals of all ages, weights, and shapes, those candidates likely to get the most benefit from CoolSculpting® are:
Not significantly overweight
Have stubborn areas of loose fat that do not respond to diet and exercise
Intimidated by or are not ideal candidates for surgery
Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment
Want zero downtime and amazing results
After your consultation with Dr. Ryan to design your unique treatment plan, your procedure will be scheduled. At your appointment, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting® handpiece will be applied to the predetermined area, and controlled cooling will be initiated. The cooling, delivered through the handpiece, will target and freeze the fat cells. It is not uncommon to feel coolness while initially receiving treatment. The cold sensation quickly fades as the area becomes numb. The handpiece uses mild suction to pull the targeted fat cells in so you should feel minor tugging or pinching. These are normal sensations and fade quickly.
What to Expect
As CoolSculpting® is noninvasive, you can return to standard activities after treatment. Most often, you can return to work or school immediately following your procedure. Side effects of the procedure usually include bruising, swelling, stinging, redness, numbness and soreness in the treatment area which can last several weeks. These side effects are temporary and typically subside in the hours following your procedure. You should expect to enjoy results in as little as three weeks, with the most impressive results appearing about 3 months after your CoolSculpting® treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting® depends on the number of treatments and areas needed to meet your body sculpting expectations. During your consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals to choose the best treatment plan for you.
How does CoolSculpting® work?
CoolSculpting® works through the controlled application of cold temperature to permanently remove targeted fat cells. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. The cells are broken down by the body and disposed of through natural functions.
Is CoolSculpting® safe?
CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical, external treatment in which the device is simply applied to the skin’s surface. All procedures involve some risks and we discuss these with you during your consult. With this procedure, there's no need for a recovery period. You may experience some slight swelling, bruising, numbness, and redness immediately after treatment, but this generally only last 1-3 weeks.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatments needed to reach your desired results will be decided during your initial consultation and follow ups. For some patients, only one treatment is enough, but other patients may need more sessions depending on the volume of the area treated.
Do the fat cells grow back?
Each of us is genetically programmed to have a set number of fat cells and this does not change once we are adults. The Coolsculpt® destroyed fat cells are gone forever! Some fat cells are left behind. These remaining fat cells can grow if you gain weight. The more rounds of Coolsculpting® you have the less remaining cells there are that could increase in size with weight gain. If you maintain your weight within 5-10 pounds of your weight at the time of your procedure, you can retain the slimming effect of the procedure. You can also have additional rounds of Coolsculpting® to remove the amount of remaining fat cells. To maintain optimal results, it is recommended that you adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine.
