CoolSculpting®

Dr. Renee Burke’s state-of-the-art Barrington aesthetic center specializes in Chicago’s popular CoolSculpting treatments. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure reduces 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 destroy diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are noticeable and lasting, to help you look and feel great from every angle.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

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, the body naturally processes the fat and flushes away these dead cells, for a more sculpted you.

Chicago residents can now 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 let us address your stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the CoolSculpting 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.

Barrington and Chicago residents love what they see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the dead fat cells, gradually slimming treated areas.

Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you could 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.


Keep in mind each patient is unique and your results may vary.

QUESTION: How much does CoolSculpting cost in Chicago?
ANSWER: 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.

QUESTION: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
ANSWER: 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.

QUESTION: Where does the fat go?
ANSWER: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and flushes away these dead cells.

QUESTION: What does it feel like?
ANSWER: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, patients typically 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.

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

QUESTION: Are there any side effects?
ANSWER: 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.

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

QUESTION: When will I see results?
ANSWER: Results develop slowly as the body disposes of treated fat cells. While experiences vary, patients may notice gradual slimming for approximately four to six months after treatment.

QUESTION: Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
ANSWER: 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 by taking even better care of themselves.

QUESTION: What happens if I gain weight down the road?
ANSWER: Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, it may be distributed more evenly over your body, instead of returning just to the treated areas.
