Coolsculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat that despite even our best efforts, don’t respond to even the most stringent weight loss program. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, Coolsculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.
In order to get started, simply schedule a complimentary consultation in our office. Once we determine that you are a candidate for CoolSculpting, we will schedule your treatment. During the treatment, you simply relax and let the machine do the work. Each treatment area takes about an hour…so we recommend that you bring a good book or your iPad for entertainment (or you can take a well-deserved nap!).
After one visit, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes a few months to see optimal results as your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells over time. So within 2-3 months, you will feel better and look better. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your results will be long-lasting. How cool is that?
Am I a Candidate?
The CoolSculpting procedure is designed for people who want to eliminate fat bulges in specific areas. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass). People who choose CoolSculpting often want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas.
Where Does the Fat Go?
The frozen fat cells become crystallized, then die. The dead fat cells then are naturally processed and eliminated by your body. Some patients wonder if the results are permanent. CoolSculpting results are long term because those fat cells, and that fat bulge, are gone for good.
When Will I See Results?

Will I Need Supplements?
After your CoolSculpting treatment, no special supplements are required. You won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits because it’s not a diet and exercise program. Many people do feel more motivated to take good care of themselves after a CoolSculpting treatment. They look better, they feel better, and they want to keep their reshaped body healthy.
How Cold Does It Get? Will It Hurt?
As you may expect, the CoolSculpting procedure will feel a little chilly. For the first 5 to 10 minutes, you may feel intense cold as the treated area becomes numb. Since most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue in, you may also feel some tugging, pulling, and/or mild pinching.
Can I Multitask During My Treatment?
Yes, you can absolutely multitask during your CoolSculpting treatment. You are encouraged to read, check your emails, take a nap, or whatever feels comfortable for you. You can relax while you say goodbye to stubborn fat.
Is There Any Downtime?
Because the CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, it’s typically very easy to return to your normal activities after the treatment. Often, patients go back to work on the same day. When you have a CoolSculpting treatment, there are no needles, no surgery, and no downtime.
Are There Side Effects?
Typical side effects after the procedure include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain. For a few hours after the applicator is removed, many patients do experience redness in the treated area. In rare cases, this redness may persist for a few days, up to 2 weeks, but it will completely resolve itself.
