What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat-freezing technology, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble trouble spots such as the abdomen, flanks or under the chin.
How does it work? At a certain temperature, fat cells will freeze. Your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells.
CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment. It’s for patients at or near their ideal body weight who want to reduce fat in one or more areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate?
The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
How long is each treatment?
We will create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment varies from 35 to 60 minutes.
What areas of the body can be treated?
CoolSculpting® 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.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells in the treated area. This causes the cells to die, after which your body’s natural processes will eliminate them from the body.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
Are there any side effects?
During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
