CoolSculpting®

Now offering a non-surgical and natural way to eliminate stubborn fat!

CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary, non-surgical, contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no surgery. And most importantly, no downtime! Patients often spend procedure time reading, watching TV, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.

It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective.­­ Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.


 

CoolSculpting® Treatment

Prior to treatment, you and your doctor will discuss your goals and determine the precise areas on which to work. When treatment begins, your doctor will position the CoolSculpting device on the area and it will draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure-enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled efficiently. Depending on the extent of your procedure, the treatment is usually complete in about one hour.

Benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  • It involves no needles, surgery or downtime. Since the CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive, patients can resume daily activities including work and exercise immediately following treatment.
  • It's comfortable. CoolSculpting patients can sit or lie down and relax during the procedure. The procedure is performed in a medical office, under the supervision of a physician specializing in cosmetic procedures.
  • It's convenient. Procedures typically last for about one hour, so treatment can easily be performed at lunchtime or during an opportune time of day.
  • The results are dramatic. Patients can expect an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas in as little as three weeks after their procedure.

CoolSculpting® Frequently Asked Questions

What does it feel like?

During the first few minutes of the cooling, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates and patients experience no pain. Many people read, work on a laptop or take a nap during their treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight-reduction program for obese individuals. The best candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly yet have pockets of fat that are unresponsive. It is appropriate for those who are seeking spot reduction for specific areas of fat but are not interested in a surgical procedure.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

The procedure is completely non-surgical, so most people can resume their regular activities immediately. Patients frequently return to work after the session is finished.

Is CoolSculpting® safe?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the love handles and proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Typically, there is minimal to no downtime after the procedure though some patients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling and numbness. Numbness can persist for several weeks after a procedure. Your doctor can discuss more about what to expect during and after treatment at your consultation.

How much does CoolSculpting® cost?

The price for CoolSculpting varies, depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals. An estimate of the cost cannot be determined until your doctor evaluates you in person. Typically, you'll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but additional treatments may provide you with even more fat reduction.


A few months after your CoolSculpting treatment, you will look great and your clothes will fit better. As long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise routine, these results should remain steady for the long-term.
