What Is The CoolSculpting® Procedure?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look great from every angle.
What Does It Do?
CoolSculpting® helps transform your body by removing fat cells from targeted areas without surgery.
How Does It Work?
During the CoolSculpting® procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat, leaving surface skin and other surrounding tissue unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated area. Every patient is unique, which is why a recommended customized treatment plan is included as part of your initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas achieve even greater fat reduction.
What Areas Of The Body Can We Treat?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for weight loss.
Is There Any Downtime After The Procedure?
The fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities immediately.
When Will I See Results?
In the weeks and months to follow, your body naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
