What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared procedure for freezing away stubborn fat using a non-surgical approach. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you'll look great from every angle!

With CoolSculpting, men and women can eliminate fat from your abdomen, flanks or sides "love handles/muffin tops," back, bra area, underneath the buttocks “banana roll,” double chin, inner thighs, outer thighs, and upper arms. CoolSculpting will literally reshape your body.

CoolSculpting visibly reduces fat layer thickness after a single treatment, and it has long-lasting results—up to nine years post-treatment.

We will customize a treatment plan for you based on your goals and problem areas. You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment. Additional sessions may further enhance your results.

Why Choose CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. If you live a healthy lifestyle, but still have noticeable bulges in certain areas you’d like to get rid of, you would probably benefit from a consultation. 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.

Many patients choose CoolSculpting because they either do not want to undergo surgical fat reduction or are not good candidates for surgical procedures. Plus, because there is no downtime, CoolSculpting is a great option for those with busy or active lifestyles.

Your CoolSculpting Procedure

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. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

During treatment, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates, as the treatment area will numb. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes per treatment session. However, most individuals choose to treat multiple areas of the body.

How Can I Maintain My Results?

Following your CoolSculpting treatment, you may begin to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will see more dramatic results after two months. Your body will continue to flush our fat cells for 4-6 months after treatment.

The best way to maintain your CoolSculpting results is to follow a healthy lifestyle including healthy food and exercise. Once patients begin to see their CoolSculpting results, many are even more motivated to stay at their ideal weight. However, if you do gain some weight, you are more likely to gain it evenly all over your body and not just in the treated areas.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?

Overall, the price of your CoolSculpting treatment will depend on the treatment area, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate cosmetic goals. Most patients undergo treatments in multiple areas of the body to achieve their goals. Pricing can be discussed during your consultation appointment.

Where does the fat go after it is frozen?

Once the targeted fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated from the body. Once these fat cells are removed from the body, they cannot return.

What is cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is the technology that CoolSculpting is based on. It is the non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue to induce the breakdown of fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues.

Do I need to prepare for my CoolSculpting treatment?

CoolSculpting is noninvasive and nonsurgical, so there are no extensive preparations or restrictions on diet or medications beforehand. It is advised that you have a light snack before treatment and have at least two hours open for the procedure.

Are there any side-effects after the treatment?

After the CoolSculpting treatment, patients may feel sensations of tingling, pulling, tugging, mild pinching, stinging, cramping, sensitivity, or intense cold in the treatment area. These side-effects are temporary and usually resolve within days or weeks. Patients are able to return to normal activities right away, as there is no downtime required.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia. It uses tubes to suction out fat from targeted areas, leaving individuals with immediate results. However, it is an invasive procedure that requires downtime to recover. CoolSculpting is nonsurgical and noninvasive and requires no downtime.

Is CoolSculpting safe?

Yes, Coolsculpting is FDA-approved and is a very safe way to eliminate fat from the thighs, abdomen, flanks, back, arms, and chin.

Who shouldn’t undergo CoolSculpting?

While CoolSculpting is usually a good option for most people, individuals with cold agglutinin disease, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cryoglobulinemia should not undergo this treatment, as complications may occur.

How long do CoolSculpting results last?

The majority of CoolSculpting patients show persistent results at least six months after their treatment. However, as long as you maintain your weight, results are expected to last about as long as results from liposuction.
