Are you a good candidate?

The CoolSculpting® treatment can be applied to effectively reduce the amount of stubborn fat in hard-to-lose areas such as under your chin, belly, flanks, inner and outer thighs.

This procedure is intended for both men and women who already live active and healthy lifestyles, but still see problem areas on their bodies with “stubborn fat,” i.e. areas where the fat does not respond to diet and exercise. Good candidates for the treatment have noticeable bulges in certain areas of their body, but are within 30 lbs. of the ideal weight for their height.

Before and After the CoolSculpting® treatment

Before and After the CoolSculpting® treatment

People should choose CoolSculpting® if they are looking for a fast, non-surgical way to eliminate small amounts of stubborn fat with no downtime or recovery period. This treatment is not recommended as a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. These patients should seek out other options for reducing body fat before pursuing a CoolSculpting® procedure.

The procedure only takes a short time in the office. After a one-on-one consultation with the clinician, the treatment generally takes only about an hour depending on the number of areas being treated. You will then begin to see changes as early as three weeks after the treatment, with most patients seeing dramatic results after about two months. The body will continue to eliminate treated cells for 4 to 6 months.

How does it Work?

Because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the tissue surrounding it, CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. The crystallized (frozen) fat cells die, and over time your body naturally processes the fat, eliminating the dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

It is important to note that the CoolSculpting® procedure is a fat-reduction treatment, rather than a weight-loss solution – the number of fat cells (adipose tissue) in the body stabilizes in young adulthood, and the cells expand and contract as weight is gained or lost. Rather than reducing the size of these adipose cells, the CoolSculpting® procedure aims to reduce the number of fat cells that exist in the target locations by 20 to 25 percent.

+ Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate? Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost? The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need? We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent? Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

What does it feel like? As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe? The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side effects? During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment? Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

When will I see results? You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program? No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road? 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 evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.*
