CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that gently reduces fat in problem areas of the body. What makes CoolSculpting different than other fat reduction procedures is its unique cooling technology that targets and crystallizes fat cells
Cryolipolysis – the scientific term behind the procedure – is the non-invasive method of the cooling of fat cells to break them down without damaging surrounding tissue. Cryolipolysis is based on the principle that fat cells are more vulnerable to cooling than surrounding tissue cells. An applicator is attached to the targeted area and the fat cells are cooled while the surrounding skin, nerves, muscles and other tissues are protected. This cooling causes the fat cells to die and break down, and are flushed out of your body by your liver. As the fat cells slowly exit the body, the thickness of the targeted fat layer becomes smaller.

About The Procedure
During a complimentary consultation, an evaluation of your candidacy for CoolSculpting and specific body areas is completed by our certified CoolSculpting Specialist. Your body composition, treatment area, type and amount of excess fat, expectations, and desired outcomes are assessed to determine if you are a candidate for this treatment. An individualized treatment plan will then be developed specifically for you.
To initiate the treatment, we will position the CoolSculpting applicator on your body. This device will then draw in the bulge between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. The procedure takes about one hour per treatment area.
Typically, patients are comfortable enough to read, work on their laptop computers, listen to music, or just relax during the procedure.
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so you can usually return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, tingling, bruising, or numbness in the treated areas, but these are temporary and not experienced by all patients.
For most patients, full results will appear after two to three months, but some patients may start to see results as early as 2-3 weeks. Your body will continue to flush fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment, although individual results may vary slightly.
