What is a CoolSculpting treatment?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that targets the stubborn areas of fat that have frustratingly resisted all diet and exercise efforts.
Since cooling is a superb way to produce skin numbness, CoolSculpting provides its own anesthetic by numbing the skin as it cools. The CoolSculpting device utilizes a suction cup that uses a constant vacuum to isolate a fold of fat. Each fold of fat is cooled for 35-45 minute cycle. During the treatment, you can relax, read, use a computer, or watch a movie while the CoolSculpting device gently cools your treatment area.
The CoolSculpting procedure works by isolating a roll of unwanted fat and cooling that specific area to low enough temperatures which cause the fat cells beneath the skin in the treatment area to die. The result is a visible reduction of the fat layer in the treated area, which is typically seen within a couple of months. Fat tissue is more sensitive to cold than other tissues. Exposing fat cells to extreme cold for a certain time period can kill fat cells, thus reducing the thickness of fat under the skin. The fat cells that are destroyed by
CoolSculpting are not replaced with new fat cells, so the results of CoolSculpting are just as long-lasting as the results of liposuction.
Typical side effects include temporary numbness, discomfort, and swelling and bruise. Rare side effects may also occur. This treatment is for women and men.

What to expect from a CoolSculpting treatment?
Results are not immediately visible, as your body takes some weeks to process the dead fat away. You will notice a gradual reduction as soon as four weeks after your treatment. Results are typically fully visible 90 days after the procedure. To show your progress and transformation, your specialist will take pictures both before your procedure and again at 90 days.
Are CoolSculpting treatments safe?
CoolSculpting is safe because the treated region is carefully monitored for precise temperature. Extensive testing has shown that cooling only damages fat cells, and other tissues at the treatment site are not affected. The dead fat cells are swept away and discarded by the body’s normal metabolic processes.
I have loose abdominal skin, am I still a CoolSculpting candidate?
CoolSculpting will not tighten loose folds of skin. Regions of excess skin along the abdomen and flanks are best treated with some non-surgical and surgical treatments.
What is the Cost of CoolSculpting?
The cost of CoolSculpting ranges from $500 to $750
