The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.
Results and patient experience may vary.
How Does It Work?
The concept behind CoolSculpting was discovered by accident. Two Harvard scientists were researching kids eating popsicles and the formation of dimples in their cheeks. They found that the cold from the popsicles was freezing the fat. The result was the formation of dimples, which only occur in the absence of fat. They researched further and found that fat cells freeze and die at a higher temperature than other tissue cells. The result was CoolSculpting.
In a CoolSculpting session, the patient sits in our angled treatment chair and the CoolSculpting panels are positioned over the treatment area. The panels apply light suction that draws the skin, underlying tissue, and fat up between the two cooling panels. The temperature is set to the freezing point of the fat cells, and the CoolSculpting panels deliver the cooling down into the skin and tissue. The fat cells freeze and the body begins the process of eliminating them. As the session progresses, we repeat this process several times across the treatment area. A total session takes from one to three hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. CoolSculpting crystallizes and kills from 20 to 25 percent of the fat cells in the treated area.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
The cost of your CoolSculpting session is variable depending on the area you’re having treated. Larger areas require various applications of the CoolSculpting panels and cooling. Smaller areas may be able to be completed in a single positioning. You can call our offices and give us more information about the areas you’re thinking of having treated and we can give you a good idea of the cost.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
The FDA has cleared CoolSculpting for the treatment of visible fat bulges under the chin, the thighs, abdomen and flanks, along the bra line, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and the upper arms. CoolSculpting was approved first for the flanks in 2010. As time has gone by, the FDA has approved subsequent areas, adding back fat, bra line fat, and fat underneath the buttocks in 2016. To date, over 6 million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed worldwide, with studies on safety described in over 100 clinical publications.
This procedure is completely non-invasive and safe. You can return to normal activities immediately following your procedure. There is no recovery or downtime.
Are My Results Permanent?
Once the fat cells in the treatment area are frozen, they die and are then naturally eliminated from the body. These fat cells are gone for good. CoolSculpting is not weight loss; it is fat loss. This procedure removes about one quarter of the fat in areas that don’t respond well to diet changes or exercise, such as the abdomen.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Be Used On?
CoolSculpting is meant for people who are at or very near their ideal weight, but have some isolated pockets of fat that don’t respond to dietary changes or exercise.
These are the body areas the FDA has approved for treatment with CoolSculpting:
- Back fat
- Bra line fat
- Underneath the buttocks
- Double chin
- Upper arms
Do I need to do anything to prepare for my CoolSculpting session?
No, there is no preparation necessary. It’s important to remember that this is not a weight loss procedure, so it’s best to get as close to your ideal weight as possible prior to having CoolSculpting.
