Are you ready to see a slimmer, more sculpted figure? You can achieve it without surgery or invasive procedures with Coolsculpting®. This proven method of fat removal shapes even your most challenging areas for powerful body contouring results. 

What is Coolsculpting®?

Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that cools fat cells to break them apart. As the body removes these fat cells, you will see the treated areas become slimmer and more contoured. The popularity of Coolsculpting® comes from its ability to target fat that no amount of effort has been able to budge.

How Does Coolsculpting® Work?

Coolsculpting® works because fat freezes before other tissues, so a temperature low enough to freeze fat will leave the area around it unharmed. Breaking up fat cells by freezing is called cryolipolysis. The body’s metabolism will naturally remove these damaged cells. The cold comes from applicators placed on your skin, and treatment requires no incisions, injections, or other invasive methods. 

How Long Does it Take to See Results from Coolsculpting®?

The body takes time to filter away all the damaged fat cells from the treatment area. It may take up to three months to notice results. Some people can see their desired results within two sessions, but you may need as many as six. 

In the end, you can see a 20-25% fat reduction. This translates to visible slimming and sculpting,  as well as lost inches. You can expect these results to last as long as you maintain your healthy lifestyle. Fat cells do not grow back, but the remaining cells can enlarge with weight gain. 

Where Can I Have Coolsculpting®?

Coolsculpting® works on stubborn fat almost anywhere you have it. Because Coolsculpting® technology only targets fat cells, you can have this treatment on many parts of your body, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Bra fat
  • Back fat
  • Under the buttocks
  • Submental (under the chin)
  • Submandibular (under the jaw)

Am I a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting®?

Almost anyone makes a good candidate for Coolsculpting®. Ideal candidates are close to their target body weight but need a boost to get rid of difficult fat. You may need to postpone treatment if you have an infection or skin condition in the target area. People with certain medical conditions may not make good candidates. 

Is There Any Downtime With Coolsculpting®?

Immediately after treatment, you may notice some redness or swelling. This is usually very mild and fades within a few days. You can resume your daily activities immediately after your session.
