CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is a cosmetic treatment to remove areas of body fat. It works by freezing the fat cells from specific parts of the body. Similarly to liposuction, our technicians use CoolSculpting to target areas of the body where it is more difficult to remove fat by diet and exercise.
We invite you to schedule a Free consultation with one of our experts in CoolSculpting to determine to determine your unique cost to transformation. For any CoolSculpting you may book, we do ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time to fill out paperwork, and change into a spa robe for your services.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long are the treatments? And how many treatments will I need?
Your CoolSculpting specialist will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated and the volume of fat. The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat a patient in as little as 45-minutes.
Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
In the US, the CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site during the procedure. 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. A 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.
What areas can CoolSculpting treat?
We can treat just about anywhere on the body that has stubborn fat. Typical areas include the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, submental/double chin, and more.
What's the Difference Between CoolSculpting & Liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure. You are often put under anesthesia and have several wounds from when they inserted the metal device. You will experience downtime post-treatment.
With CoolSculpting, it's an entirely non-invasive procedure, with no downtime, no needles, and no anesthesia so that you can get back to your life that same day!
Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure?
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.
What do I Need to know BEFORE My CoolSculpting treatment?
Since we use a gel for the applicators, sometimes it can get a little messy. We will have you change into a Spa robe and robe so you don't product on your clothes. You also want to come to your appointment well-hydrated! Drink plenty of water. This will help your body eliminate the damaged fat cells through your lymphatic system much quicker.
What happens AFTER a CoolSculpting treatment?
Once your CoolSculpting treatment has been complete, we do a vigorous massage for about three minutes to the just treated area. This helps breaks up those frozen, crystallized fat cells so your body can excrete them through the lymphatic system naturally and safely. Again, continuing to stay hydrated and some compression can assist in the fat cell excretion.
