CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment. The procedure can be performed on any area of the body where fat bulges are present. The treatment is done by freezing the fat cells in the area and over time, they are naturally eliminated from your body.
The procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, meaning there are no incisions or cuts. It’s also not as time consuming as other methods of fat reduction, like liposuction or surgery.
CoolSculpting can help with weight loss, back fat, love handles, and stomach fat, as well as other areas of the body that are affected by stubborn fat deposits.

Create a Personalized Treatment Plan

The process of creating a personalized treatment plan with your plastic surgeon for CoolSculpting is not difficult. It is important to discuss your goals and expectations with the doctor before you make any decisions about the procedure.
The treatment is performed by a qualified professional, who will apply a cooling device to the targeted area for up to 2 hours. The patient should then be able to resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
You should also be aware that there is a chance that you’ll need to wear a compression garment or binder, which will help reduce swelling and give your skin some support.
The procedure is quick and relatively painless with only some mild discomfort and an occasional tingling sensation experienced during the treatment.
This process provides visible results within weeks of treatment and can be repeated at intervals of 4-6 months for optimal results if desired.
You should be able to start to see positive results in as little as two weeks. For most patients, noticeable results can be seen after just one month.
After your treatment, it is important to take the time to care for your skin after a CoolSculpting procedure. Your skin will be sensitive, so it is important to keep it moisturized and hydrated.
After a CoolSculpting procedure, you should also avoid sun exposure and any kind of treatment that could irritate your skin such as waxing or chemical peels.
