What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a body contouring treatment that uses controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting® treats fat cells without harming the surrounding skin or tissue.

CoolSculpting® Treatment Areas

CoolSculpting® is safe for use on most areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, submental fat below the chin, and back.

How Long Does CoolSculpting® Last?

The results of CoolSculpting® are long-lasting because the fat cells removed from the body after treatment are gone for good. However, this does not mean that the remaining fat cells won’t grow if you gain weight. Therefore, it’s essential to maintain a healthy diet and get regular exercise after treatment.

If you didn’t exercise much before, CoolSculpting® can be the motivation you need to kickstart a regular exercise regimen that will help preserve the results of the procedure.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

The CoolSculpting® applicator emits cold temperature that selectively targets and breaks down the fat cells causing them to crystallize and die. The body processes and removes the fat cells in the weeks following your procedure.  

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that requires no anesthesia or incisions, so there is no downtime.

Depending on the size of the target area, a single CoolSculpting® treatment takes 30-45 minutes.

What Results Can I Expect?

CoolSculpting® reduces fat cells in the targeted area by up to 24%. If you want to reduce the area further, you can schedule a second CoolSculpting® session after two months. The results of CoolSculpting® are not immediate as the body takes time to eliminate the fat cells damaged during treatment.

You should see a visible reduction of fat in the treated area about 1-3 months after treatment, but final results can take up to 6 months. 

Are you a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

If you are between 15-20 pounds of your ideal weight but have one or two problem areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting® may be a good option for you. Once the problem areas are gone, you should find that your clothes fit more comfortably. 

Candidates for CoolSculpting® should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. CoolSculpting® is designed to target localized areas of stubborn fat and achieves the best results when combined with a healthy lifestyle. However, CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss solution and should not be considered a replacement for diet and exercise. 

If you are ready to explore the fat-reducing benefits of CoolSculpting®, you can enjoy the results for a long time if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.  

WOW! I went into my appointment with a negitive attitude. I have all of my cosmetic procedures done in Europe and have very high standards. Even though I came across skeptical, I was treated with patience and respect. I had PRP and Botox and am so impressed with the quality and results. It is so nice to have a doctor that knows what he’s doing!

Thank you!!!!!

DD, Happy Patient
