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 more intense cold. The fat cells die and are gradually flushed away by the body’s natural processes.

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:
Lower back and “bra strap bulge” area

CoolSculpting is a great way to reduce isolated areas of fat; however, it’s important to understand its limitations. Here are some of the pros and cons:
For individuals who are not interested in liposuction, CoolSculpting offers the following benefits:
Slimmer body contours
No anesthesia needed
No surgery or scars
Some of the limitations of CoolSculpting include:
Less precise than liposuction
More subtle results than with liposuction
Candidates for CoolSculpting
The best candidates for CoolSculpting are men and women 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 the skin and uses suction to draw 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.
What Is CoolSculpting Recovery Like?
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.
How Long After CoolSculpting Will I See Results?
Results won’t be immediately visible; rather, treated areas slowly slim down over the following 2 to 3 months as dead fat cells are gradually flushed away. Patients may choose to undergo additional treatments for even greater results.
