What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that freezes and removes unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting® is performed typically on love handles and the outer thighs, however, the treatment is expanding to other areas of the body as well. The process is FDA-cleared and patients can melt away stubborn fat without needles, surgery or even downtime.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting relies on a process called Cryolipolysis that targets a desired area, freezing fat and removing fat cells without damage to structures in the surrounding area. A mild vacuum pressure instrument is applied to a specific area and exposes the cells to temperatures which effectively freeze them. Clients experience little to no discomfort and a single treatment takes approximately 1 to 2 hours. Immediately after treatments, clients can return back to their daily activities.

The effect in the body will begin after several days after a CoolSculpting treatment. The targeted fat cells shrink, are digested and eliminated from the body within a few months. A slimmer and more contoured shape will begin to be revealed. Noticeable results may begin in only three weeks and will continue over the course of the following two to four months. 1 or more treatments may be necessary. However, clients can lose a 20-25% decrease of fat in the area treated with CoolSculpting after a single visit.*

Are there CoolSculpting Side Effects?

Some client may experience side effects from the procedure. Common CoolSculpting risks include:

  • Swelling, redness or bruising of the treated area; and/or
  • Decreased sensation in the targeted area.

These CoolSculpting side effects are temporary and will be resolved in one to two weeks. The treatment is ideal for patients that are 10 to 20 pounds away from their desired weight.

What are the Advantages of CoolSculpting?

With CoolSculpting® clients can see results in a few weeks’ time, experience little discomfort and no downtime. This non-surgical treatment has received FDA-clearance and relies on the body’s own natural elimination processes to remove stubborn fat cells from target areas. Get the slim look you desire without surgery or needles.
