The ugly truth is, we all have stubborn fat. And as we age, gravity and genetics only make things worse. Proper diet and exercise are not enough to keep these unwanted bulges at bay. CoolSculpting is the solution for getting back the body you want, without surgery or downtime.
How CoolSculpting Works
The treatment delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells beneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Eliminates up to 20-25% of treated fat cells for good
Targets 9 different areas of the body
Proven, noticeable, and long-lasting results
The suction pressure of a vacuum applicator may cause sensations of gentle pulling and sensations of pressure. You may experience intense cold, stinging, tingling, aching, or cramping as the treatment begins. These sensations generally subside during treatment as the area becomes numb. The treated area may look or feel stiff after the procedure and transient blanching (temporary whitening of the skin) may occur.
Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting have some modest-size fat bulges that are not easily reduced through diet and exercise, such as double chins, abdominal fat, love handles, back fat and fat bulges from menopause. We recommend a CoolSculpting consultation with one of our CoolSculpting specialists to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure and to review the procedure with you.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed and your ultimate goals. A customized treatment plan will be created with our CoolSculpting Specialist that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Is there pain during or after the procedure? Are there side effects or downtime?
CoolSculpting has no downtime! It is safe and completely non-invasive which allows immediate return to work, exercise, and other normal activities. Although there may be some minor discomfort during the first 10 minutes as the fat is drawn into the applicator and cooled, no pain medication or anesthetic is needed. The procedure is comfortable enough to read, work on a laptop, listen to music with headphones or take a nap during the procedure. Afterward, patients experience redness which usually lasts minutes to hours. Some patients may experience bruising, tenderness, and itching for 1 to 2 weeks and a temporary dulling of sensation for 1 or more weeks.
Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for non-surgical fat reduction on the flank (love handles), abdomen, bra line, inner thigh, outer thigh, and now the double chin. With over one million CoolSculpting procedures performed, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as four weeks after your first CoolSculpting treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Your body will flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Individual results may vary.
What happens If I gain weight in the future?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it more evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
