CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction technique that offers a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It’s a clinically-proven modality that effectively reduces the number of fat cells in excess bulges and areas of fat. It can treat the tummy, love handles, hips, waist, legs, back, lower and upper arms, muffin top, banana roll and even the double chin.
Patients usually notice some improvement in the treated area after one treatment. For optimum results, however, 2-3 treatments are recommended. Some fat reduction can be seen after three weeks and the final results can be expected 3-4 months post treatment.
During your consultation with our medical professionals, your problem areas will be assessed and a treatment plan will be outlined. On the day of your procedure, an applicator will be placed on the treatment area using a light suction while controlled cooling is applied to the surface of the skin. At this time the patient will experience an intense cold sensation that normally dissipates within a few minutes.
The applicator will remain attached for approximately an hour. During the procedure patients may read, listen to music, work on their laptop or even take a nap.
Harvard University researchers discovered CoolSculpting technology over a decade ago by. The breakthrough “fat freezing” treatment involves exposing fat cells to very low temperatures, a process called cryolipolysis. It was discovered that once stubborn fat cells become frozen they die and are naturally removed by your body’s lymphatic system.
CoolSculpting can be used for trimming inches off your waist, tummy, inner thighs, outer thighs, love handles (muffin top), back, lower and upper arms, chin/neck , knees, ankles and bra fat. In fact, most areas with stubborn, unwanted fat cells that don’t respond to diet and exercise can be effectively targeted with CoolSculpting.

Downtime is very minimal with CoolSculpting. Patients can resume their normal activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure. Some people may experience temporary side-effects such as redness or numbness, as well as minor swelling and bruising in the treated area.
CoolSculpting is a minimally-invasive fat reduction treatment that permanently eliminates fat cells. As long as patients maintain a healthy weight with diet and exercise, long-term results are possible. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool but rather a body sculpting treatment.
Most patients can notice results as early as three weeks after their CoolSculpting procedure. Maximum fat reduction, however, can be observed after 12-16 weeks. Additionally, the body will continue to remove injured fat cells for approximately four months after treatment. Typically, the procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20-40%.

It’s possible to experience some minor discomfort during and after treatment. Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting doesn’t involve any needles or surgery. You will be made very comfortable by laying down or reclining during the procedure. As CoolSculpting begins, you will feel a mild suction and cooling sensation that only lasts several minutes.
If you have unwanted fat cells then CoolSculpting is a great alternative to surgical fat reduction. It’s a minimally-invasive way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that persist even with a healthy diet or exercise. Keep in min that CoolSculpting is not an effective treatment for cellulite.
Most patients achieve excellent results with one session; however, multiple treatments in the same area may be required for optimum fat loss. If you choose to have any additional sessions, they can be performed one week after your initial CoolSculpting procedure. Multiple areas can be treated on the same day.
CoolSculpting is a very safe and effective procedure. It’s normal to experience some temporary side-effects such as redness, numbness or tingling in the treated area. Some minor swelling and bruising post-treatment can also occur.
Fat freezing can remove fat from many areas of the body. This includes the abdomen (tummy), back, arms, waist, knees, love handles, chin (submental area) and neck, as well as the inner and outer thighs.
