What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive laser therapy that reduces fat without the need for surgery or downtime. Designed to minimize stubborn fat, it’s especially helpful for areas such as your midsection that remain despite diet and exercise changes.

Am I a good candidate?

If you have stubborn fat in specific areas you wish to minimize, you may be a great candidate for CoolSculpting. It’s not intended for obese individuals but for people who actively work to stay healthy and fit yet struggle with lingering “trouble spots.” Many patients choose the treatment as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction.

Does it work?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment of its kind. Its safety and effectiveness have been proved with over 4 million treatments conducted around the world.

Are there any side effects?

During your CoolSculpting treatment, you may notice some cold, tingling, tugging, pulling, and mild pinching sensations, which many people tolerate well. Gradually, as the area becomes numb, you no longer feel these effects. Severe side effects are rare, but you could experience some amount of swelling, tenderness, tingling, aching, or itching after your treatment. These symptoms typically diminish on their own within days or weeks.

When can I see results?

Results of CoolSculpting gradually appear soon after treatment. You may begin seeing improvements in as little as three weeks, and the most dramatic results may appear after about two months. Your body continues to reduce fat cells for up to six months post-treatment.

Are the results permanent?

Once CoolSculpting treats fat cells, they are frozen and then die. Your body then naturally processes and reduces them so they’re gone for good. While it’s still possible to gain weight, especially if you stop exercising or eating well, the fat cell reduction is permanent. You can expect up to 25% removal of fat in targeted areas. To get the most out of your treatment, continue your healthy lifestyle habits.

Can I get back to my usual activities after treatment?

Yes. Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, most people can resume typical daily activities immediately after the treatment. You can even get treated over your lunch hour and then go straight back to work.
