How It Works

CoolSculpting treatments work because of the exclusive cryolipolysis technology. The device's low temperatures damage fat cells but don't harm surrounding tissues, which can stand up to deeper cold. The fat cells die and are gradually flushed away by the body's natural processes.

Your Body, Renewed

There are certain areas of our bodies that naturally tend to hold onto stubborn fat deposits. No matter how carefully we eat or how many crunches we do, sometimes we just can't seem to shed excess fat from these areas. Fortunately, FDA-cleared CoolSculpting can help. The treatments can be effective in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Lower back and "bra strap bulge" area
  • Hips
  • Thighs

For individuals who are not interested in liposuction, CoolSculpting offers the following benefits:

  • Slimmer body contours
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No anesthesia needed
  • No surgery or scars
  • No downtime

The best candidates for CoolSculpting are patients with excess body fat, particularly on the abdomen and flanks, who are not significantly obese. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting only treats unwanted fat, not cellulite. To reduce cellulite without surgery, we recommend Cellfina®.

What to Expect

CoolSculpting is a well-tolerated outpatient procedure. Many patients even refer to it as a "lunchtime" treatment because it can take as little as an hour and people typically return to work or their daily activities immediately afterward. Some patients may wish to spend longer to treat multiple areas during one treatment session.

During treatment, the CoolSculpting device is pressed against your skin, and it pulls areas of bulging fat between 2 cooling plates. As the area is cooled, most patients experience little discomfort, often likening the sensation to using an ice pack. The cold sensation is intense at first, but the area quickly turns numb.

Your Recovery

Patients typically have little to no bruising from the treatment. No downtime is needed, so you can return to your normal daily activities right away.

Your Results

Results won't be immediately visible; rather, treated areas slowly slim down over the course of a few months. Patients may choose to undergo additional treatments for even greater results.
