CoolSculpting®: Freeze the Fat Away
Freeze away fat? It comes down to a science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and then they die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpting you!
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 with a vacuum-like suction and controlled-cooling applicator is applied. This treatment can take 35 to 65 minutes per applicator. During the 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 CoolSculpting® procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Results will appear as inches lost from the treated area over the course of the next few weeks while the body metabolizes the dead fat cells. This natural process continues for about four to six months. Each CoolSculpting® treatment plan is customized to your body transformation and 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.

What Do You Desire?
The most commonly treated area with CoolSculpting® is the lower abdomen. Women especially enjoy inches lost from their stubborn “lower pooch” that may have developed from pregnancy, weight gain, or aging. Men also choose this area for reduced abdominal fat and a firmer contour.
CoolSculpting® can treat the inner or outer thighs so that patients can look great in jeans, tighter pants, leggings, skirts, and swimwear. Sculpting this area can also eliminate chafing or discomfort caused by excess fat in the thighs.
NO “DOUBLE CHIN”
Whether your “double chin” is genetic or the result of excess weight, removing fat from the neck and beneath the chin with CoolSculpting® can have a tremendous effect on your appearance. With the jawline defined, patients can look up to five years younger and several pounds lighter.
Many patients complain of “bra fat” or bulges of fat on the back that seem impossible to remove with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® will smooth the area to create more aesthetically pleasing posterior contours.
REDUCED “LOVE HANDLES”
The flanks, also known as “love handles,” are a common problem area, especially for men. Even a minimal amount of reduced inches in this area can provide a satisfying result in both appearance and comfort.
The effectiveness of CoolSculpting® varies from patient to patient. Many patients see up to half an inch of reduction in the treated area right after the treatment, while others do not see noticeable results for several weeks. Most patients can lose up to three inches in the treated area.
The cost of CoolSculpting® will depend on several factors, including the areas treated, the number of treatment sessions needed, and the patient’s individual goals. We will provide the customized treatment plan that fits your unique goals, anatomy, and budget.
Temporary side effects may include numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain at the treatment site. More serious side effects are rare.
Patients will feel pressure and intense cold toward the beginning of the treatment. Deep pulling, tugging, pinching, or numbness may also occur, which is normal and temporary.
