“CoolSculpting is the #1 non-surgical fat-reducing procedure in the world. Over 2 million are performed worldwide.”
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment for fat reduction. This FDA approved treatment uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists efforts through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting uses a scientific patented process known as Cryolipolysis®, where fat cells are targeted and frozen to temperatures that result in the natural death of the cell. This process will result in no damage to the skin, surrounding cells or nerves. In the time following your CoolSculpting treatment your body will naturally process the dead fat cells and eliminate them from the body. CoolSculpting is effective, long lasting and can give you noticeable and natural looking results.

What’s the difference between fat reduction through CoolSculpting and standard weight loss techniques?
After exercise and dieting to achieve weight loss the fat cells in the body get smaller but the number of cells stays the same. If weight is gained those fat cells grow larger.
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction method that uses fat-freezing technology to reduce the number of fat cells in a treatment area by approximately 20-25%. Those fat cells are naturally eliminated out of the body in the next 3-4 months. CoolSculpting shouldn’t substitute diet and exercise, but instead is used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program to achieve the appearance desired. With proper diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can give you long lasting results.
Where can CoolSculpting be used on the body?
CoolSculpting treatments are FDA-cleared to target stubborn fat in specific areas:
- Lower and upper abdomen
- Flank/side or “muffin top” or “love handle”
- Back/Bra Area
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Submental area or “double chin”
- Distal thigh (“the fat pad above the knee”)
What to expect?
Our CoolSculpting specialists underwent detailed training and certification to ensure the best result for every patient and the upmost safety. Our office guarantees the highest standard of care and we stand by our outcomes.
During your CoolSculpting consultation each patient will receive a customized treatment plan specific to their unique body.
Depending on each patient’s customized plans some treatments can be performed in as little as 35 minutes for some areas.
How does it feel?
CoolSculpting can be a little “chilly” at the most. The “controlled cooling” is applied via a specialized applicator to freeze the fat targeted in a specific area. Initially patients may experience a strong cold feeling, but this usually subsides within the first 5-10 minutes while the area numbs. You may also experience tugging or pulling because some applicators use a vacuum like device to draw fatty tissue into the applicator.
During your treatment with us you will be able to sit back and relax. You can enjoy our private and quiet treatment room with Wi-Fi access, watch TV, read, work, or even take a nap.
CoolSculpting patients experience little to no downtime and return back to normal activities afterwards with ease. Often patients return back to work once their treatment finishes that day.
Are there side effects?
During the treatment procedure itself patients may feel some tugging, deep pulling, pinching, numbness or mild discomfort. After the treatment, common side effects include temporary numbness, redness, bruising, swelling, firmness, tingling and mild pain. Many patients do see some redness in the treated area of the body for up to a few hours post treatment.
When will results been seen?
After a CoolSculpting treatment the treatment area will gradually improve into a more toned and smoothed look. The most dramatic results can be seen in approximately 3-4 months after treatment but results can be seen as early as 4 weeks.
What happens if I gain weight post treatment?
CoolSculpting for many patients can jump start a healthier lifestyle. However, if you were to gain weight after having a treatment your results may not be a visually apparent compared to if you maintained your pre-CoolSculpting weight. After CoolSculpting, you will have fewer fat cells in areas treated and may still see increased tone and definition in those areas or you may simply gain the weight evenly throughout your body.
Am I a good candidate for treatment?
A CoolSculpting candidate is a patient who has visible bulges of fat that are resistant to exercise and a healthy diet. It is a great non-surgical option for patients who would like an alternative to liposuction for those stubborn areas of fat.
