During the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat, leaving surface skin tissue unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a visible reduction in fat bulges.

Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing. Procedures last about one to two hours, so treatment can easily be performed during a lunch hour or without major disruption to the day.

Precise cooling targets fat cells

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas using a patented cooling technology called Cryolipolysis. The delivery of precise cooling affects only targeted fat cells, leaving adjacent tissue unharmed and intact.

CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often, patients return to work after the session is over.

Results look natural and can be seen as early as 3 weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after 1 to 3 months. Many patients are satisfied after one treatment, which results in an average fat reduction of 20% in the treated area. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.

During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.

What patients are saying about CoolSculpting

“I feel confident in a two-piece bathing suit. I haven’t had a two-piece on in years and I can walk around with it on. I have a form fitting dress on and when I walk down the street I feel confident. CoolSculpting is probably one of the best things I’ve ever done.” – Paige

“I definitely did not want or need surgery. That’s why I decided on CoolSculpting.” – Karen

“It’s not just that other people noticed the results – as in individual, it inspired me.” – Jeani
