Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think surgery. Neither is cool by us. That’s exactly why we developed CoolSculpting. Only CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.
The Cool Solution is the More Natural
Procedures that use laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Totally uncool. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months, boom: say hello to a new you.

Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: Am I a good
ANSWER: Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
QUESTION: How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
ANSWER: The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
QUESTION: What happens
during the treatment?
ANSWER: To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
QUESTION: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
ANSWER: We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
QUESTION: Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
ANSWER: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
QUESTION: What does it
ANSWER: As the cooling
begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold.
This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or
even take a nap during their treatment.
QUESTION: Is the
CoolSculpting procedure safe?
ANSWER: The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
QUESTION: Are there any
ANSWER: During the
procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or
discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary
numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain.
Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for
everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from
cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure
is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the
CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
QUESTION: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
ANSWER: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
QUESTION: When will I
ANSWER: You may start to
see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience
the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out
fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
QUESTION: Are the
CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a
healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
QUESTION: Do I need to
take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
ANSWER: No supplements
or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise
habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after
their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their
body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
QUESTION: What happens if I gain weight down the road?
ANSWER: Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
