Project Description



for CoolSculpting treatments.

The CoolSculpting® procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate dietand exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting® results are noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.*

Freeze away fat? It comes down to a science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting® treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, watch a movie, check email, or even take a nap. CoolSculpting uses cutting-edge technology to freeze away fat in common problem areas. Developed by the global medical device company Zeltiq, CoolSculpting is the first and only non- invasive fat reduction procedure worldwide that causes fat cells to die using a patented cooling mechanism.

The science behind CoolSculpting is a process called cryolipolysis. Scientists affiliated with Harvard University developed cryolipolysis after observing that some children lost fat in their cheeks after eating popsicles. This discovery led to the idea that cold can selectively affect fat cells, triggering lipolysis — the breaking down of fat cells — without harming the surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting is built on this principle. During a CoolSculpting session, the device targets and cools fat cells to a temperature that activates fat cell death. The fat cells die in the weeks after the session and are gradually removed by the body’s immune system. This is vastly different from other noninvasive or minimally-invasive fat reduction methods, which primarily damage fat cells using heat or high-intensity focused ultrasound.

Though they may sound similar, weight loss and fat reduction are two different things. Losing weight and seeing a smaller number on the scale don’t always mean seeing a more sculpted figure in the mirror. Weight loss refers to the shrinking of fat cells, while fat reduction is the process of removing fat cells. Fat reduction visibly changes the shape and contours of your body. CoolSculpting is not intended for weight loss and is not a substitute for diet and exercise if you are trying to lose a significant amount of weight. Think of CoolSculpting, or any other body contouring procedure, as “fine tuning” or the final step in a longer weight loss journey — it is meant to complement a healthy lifestyle and address localized areas of fat that resist traditional weight loss methods.

Clinical studies show CoolSculpting can reduce as much as 20% percent of fat cells in the treated area with each treatment. You may begin to see improvements as quickly as three weeks after your treatment. The most dramatic results develop one to three months after the procedure, when your body has had more time to flush out treated fat cells. This process can continue for up to four to six months as your smoother and more toned figure emerges.

Fat cells that are eliminated with CoolSculpting will never regenerate. They are permanently gone from your body. It’s important to remember, however, that CoolSculpting does not remove every fat cell in the treated area. The cells that remain can grow if you gain weight in the future, so it’s wise to continue a well-balanced diet and regular exercise schedule. If you do gain weight, you will still have fewer fat cells where CoolSculpting has taken place, so you may continue to see improved tone in those areas.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

CoolSculpting has helped millions of women and men shed stubborn fat safely. Studies confirming the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting have been published in more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, including
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatologic Surgery. CoolSculpting has been FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in nine areas since September 2010. It is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

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.

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.
*Disclaimer: results and patient experience may from person to person. No procedure is exactly alike.

The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical so most patients can return to work, errands, exercise and other activities right away. You may experience redness or blanching, minor bruising or swelling,
tingling, numbness, tenderness or skin sensitivity in the treated area. Some of these effects last just a few minutes or hours, while others require a few weeks to resolve. Each of these effects are temporary and will subside. Often times, patients return to work after their Coolsculpting session is over.
