What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting targets stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not a weight-loss treatment but rather a way to contour and reshape certain areas of the body. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and upper arms. You can also use CoolSculpting for your chin. Although most patients use CoolSculpting for their bellies.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a process that freezes fat cells. The process is based on the idea that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than other types of cells in the body. By exposing the fat cells to controlled cooling, the treatment will selectively freeze and destroy the fat cells, leaving other tissues unharmed.

During the treatment, a special applicator is placed on the skin in the targeted area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells, which causes them to undergo apoptosis or cell death. Over time, the body eliminates the dead fat cells, resulting in a reduction of fat in the treated area.

What to Expect During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

Before the treatment, we will assess your health and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. We will also discuss your goals and expectations for the treatment.

During the treatment, we will place the applicator on the area being treated. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells. You may feel a cold sensation or some pressure during the treatment, but most people find it comfortable.

What Are the Results of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a gradual process, and it may take several weeks or months to see the full results. Most people begin to see a reduction in fat in the treated area within a few weeks after the treatment. Your body continues to process and eliminate the dead fat cells over the following weeks and months.

The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting, but it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss substitute, and it does not replace a healthy lifestyle, but it can contour and reshape specific areas of your body.

The Benefits of CoolSculpting 

With so many treatment options on the market, you may wonder why CoolSculpting is different. Here are just a few reasons to schedule your CoolSculpting treatment today: 


CoolSculpting is a low-risk treatment that does not cause any damage to the surrounding tissues. This is because fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells. CoolSculpting can destroy fat cells without harming the neighboring cells. This means you can achieve your desired results without worrying about any adverse side effects.


CoolSculpting is more affordable than other body contouring treatments. You can control the cost of your treatments, so you won’t have any unexpected expenses after your session. This makes it easier for you to budget for your treatments and achieve your body goals without breaking the bank.

Non-Surgical and Non-Invasive 

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that does not require any downtime. You won’t need to take time off work or put your life on hold to undergo treatment. Unlike surgery, there are no wounds that need time to heal, and you won’t experience any pain or discomfort after your session.


CoolSculpting provides permanent results. Once your fat cells are destroyed, they won’t regenerate, ensuring you can enjoy your newly toned and trimmed figure for years to come. This also makes it easier for you to maintain your new body shape with a healthy lifestyle.

Quick and Easy 

CoolSculpting treatments are quick and easy. You can even schedule your treatment during your lunch break, making it convenient for people with busy schedules. There is no downtime, so you can return to your daily activities immediately after your session.

Who Can Benefit From CoolSculpting?

The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone who is already at or near their ideal weight but has stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Candidates should also have healthy skin and not be pregnant or breastfeeding. It’s important to schedule a consultation with us to determine if the treatment is suitable for you. We will also discuss your goals and expectations.
