What is CoolSculpting?

Do you have a muffin top that you can’t seem to shake?  If you’ve been searching for a non-surgical solution, CoolSculpting may be the answer for you.      CoolSculpting is one of the most popular body contouring treatments on the market, because it’s safe, effective and delivers impressive results.  But what exactly is CoolSculpting.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses proven science known as cryolipolysis, to reduce isolated pockets of stubborn fat.  Cryolipolysis is a method of controlled cooling that selectively freezes and kills fat cells.   

How does CoolSculpting work

The external cooling applicator is placed on the treatment area and the cold temperature causes the fat cells to crystallize and die.  The dead fat cells are broken down and flushed from the body in the weeks following treatment.  

CoolSculpting does not harm surrounding skin and tissue, because the fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperature than other skin cells.

Patients typically see 20%-25% reduction in fat in the treated area after a single CoolSculpting treatment.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat

CoolSculpting is designed to treat visible fat bulges that don’t respond to diet and exercise.   It is FDA approved for treating the abdomen, thighs, flanks, bra fat, back fat, upper arms, beneath the buttocks (banana roll), and submental area (double chin).

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you are at or near your ideal weight, but have a few areas of stubborn fat that you haven’t been able to reduce with diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting.
