A More Natural Solution: CoolSculpting®

Cryolipolysis® popularly known as Coolsculpting is the non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells – to reduce body fat.

Developed by Harvard scientists, the FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them  and requiring no knives, suction hoses, needles, or scars. Because only fat cells are frozen, your healthy skin cells also remain healthy. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally removed from your body.

A Minimal Downtime Procedure

Unlike many other procedures, the CoolSculpting procedure takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After yourCoolSculpting treatment, you can typically get right back to your day. Each treatment lasts one hour – the same time you might spend at the gym. You can easily fit your appointment into a lunch break.

After one visit, you’ll typically see a 20% improvement and reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments.

The best results are noticed after 3 few months when your clothes will fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting  is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. We can determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.

What happens during the treatment?

You and your clinician first select the area(s) to be treated. Your clinician 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. Each treatment will provide 20% improvement – you can opt for more treatments to notice more results. You will need to wait 6-8 week between treatments.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
