Are you struggling with stubborn fat that resists your diet and exercise efforts? CoolSculpting® effectively reduces fatty deposits and results in a smoother silhouette after one office visit. 

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, cosmetic procedure performed by a plastic surgeon that involves freezing away fat cells. CoolSculpting® derives its name from the following factors:

  • The process involves treating fat cells with cold temperatures
  • The procedure produces a more sculpted and toned silhouette

CoolSculpting® has become wildly popular because it is a safe, non-invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia. It can be performed safely and quickly in a doctor’s office, and performs long-lasting results.

Eight Different areas can be treated!

Within the U.S., the CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in a variety of areas. This procedure can be applied to the submental (chin), thigh, abdomen and flank, bra and back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms.

What are the Benefits of the CoolSculpting® Procedure?

CoolSculpting® can reduce inches in certain areas of the body. These areas can include the arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs. It can also produce a firmer appearance and increased muscle definition. Results may vary among patients depending upon the area being treated, the number of CoolSculpting® treatments performed, and the patient’s overall health and lifestyle habits. However, all patients are guaranteed to see results.
CoolSculpting® is one of the most subtle and least invasive body contouring procedures available today. The procedure leaves no scarring and requires no recovery period while producing natural, gradual results. CoolSculpting® results are designed to mimic natural weight loss since the fat cells continue to disappear gradually over time.

CoolSculpting® is considered one of the most effective, and safe, body contouring procedures on the market.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® is based on the knowledge that cold can affect fat cells. The procedure uses a device that gently freezes fat cells, and causes them to disappear from the desired areas.  The freezing process kills the fat cells and, over time, the cells are naturally eliminated from the body.  CoolSculpting® continues to provide an increasingly sculpted and toned body for up to months following the procedure.

Who is a Strong Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Typically,  CoolSculpting® is recommended for men and women who are already within 30 pounds of their ideal weight but have stubborn fatty deposits. These stubborn deposits usually occur within the thighs and/or abdomen.  Since CoolSculpting® requires no surgery, anesthesia, or downtime; anyone with no prior history of any cosmetic procedure may be a strong candidate.
