What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-elimination treatment to help men and women achieve their aesthetic goals. It employs cryolipolysis, a process that uses cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells permanently. CoolSculpting is cleared to eliminate stubborn fat in many areas of the body, including under the jawline and chin, the flanks, thighs, underarms, back fat, flanks, banana rolls, and the inner thighs.

Who is a Candidate?

Candidates for CoolSculpting are overall healthy and are near or at their optimal weight. This is because CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and those who are overweight or obese may be asked to lose weight before receiving this treatment. Individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo this treatment. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation to learn if this treatment is right for you.

The CoolSculpting Treatment

To begin treatment, the area to be targeted will be outlined, and a gel pad will be applied to create a barrier between the applicator and your skin. The CoolSculpting applicator will then be set into place. AS treatment begins, you will feel a slight vacuum pressure and an intense cold feeling. After about 10 minutes or so, the treatment area will become temporarily numb. When each treatment ends, the applicators and gel pads are removed, and the treatment area is massaged for two minutes to break up fat cells.

The CoolSculpting treatment typically takes 35-75 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Most people will require two or more treatment sessions, depending on their body contouring goals.

CoolSculpting Results

There is little to no downtime needed following CoolSculpting, so you can feel free to return back to your everyday activities. Fat cells will naturally be eliminated over 1-3 months after treatment, with most people seeing final results after six months.
