CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, no downtime treatment for effectively reducing fat bulges in targeted areas of the body, such as under your chin (submental), back fat, stomach, love handles, and inner and outer thighs.
CoolSculpting produces noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction without needles, incisions or recovery time. After the treatment patients may immediately return to their normal activities including work and exercise. Our CoolAdvantage Applicator takes just 35 minutes. Plus, we now offer two machines to cut treatment times in half!
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
CoolSculpting utilizes an advanced cooling technology known as Cryolipolysis to target and cool fat cells. CoolSculpting works by placing a specially designed applicator cup up against the targeted area. The CoolSculpting device uses a gentle vacuum pressure to draw tissue between cooling panels. The cold permanently damages the unwanted fat cells. Within days after the CoolSculpting fat removal procedure, targeted fat cells begin the process starting to shrink. The body absorbs these damaged fat cells over the next couple months and eliminates them naturally through the liver.

Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss
Did you know that the number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years? Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells.
CoolSculpting works because fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting process gradually leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. With weight loss, the size of fat cells simply change. With CoolSculpting, 20%-25% of treated fat cells die off and are eliminated.
After many years of research, you can feel confident that the CoolSculpting treatment is safe and based on sound science. Leading researchers and doctors have published more than 70 scientific and clinical journal papers, medical meeting posters, and technical reports on the FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment.
Over a period or 2 to 3 months, 25 to 30% of the fat in the treated area is gone. Further treatments eliminate increasing amounts of fat until you feel fully satisfied with your results, giving you liposuction-like results without the surgery and at a lower price point.
