After Two Full Rounds

CoolSculpting's ability to freeze fat, also known as cryolipolysis, features a one-of-a-kind technology that kills fat cells. The CoolSculpting treatment gives long-term results, slaying the stubborn fat in areas that bother you the most. Fat cells hate the cold, once they reach a certain temperature, they will die. Your body will then naturally eliminate them in 1-3 months or more, resulting in a 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated area.


CoolSculpting is FDA approved for the following treatment areas:

  • Abdomen

  • Bra Fat

  • Back Fat

  • Under Jawline

  • Under the Chin

  • Upper Arms

  • Inner/Outer Thigh

  • Banana Roll (Under buttocks)

  • Flanks (Sides)


For individuals with healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, cryolipolysis is safe and effective in reducing excess fat. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment and works best if you are within 20 pounds of your ideal weight. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or people with poor circulation, neuropathy, a pacemaker, or defibrillator should avoid CoolSculpting.


After Two Full Rounds






Yes, It Does! Studies show that CoolSculpting is an effective treatment for reducing fat. An independent study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2015 indicates that CoolSculpting reduces fat cell volume in the treated area by 14.7-28.5%. Clinical trials funded by Allergan (the manufacturer of CoolSculpting) showed similar results with a 20-25% reduction in fat-layer thickness after a single treatment.

After One Full Round






You will feel a few minutes of intense cold and pressure before the treated area goes numb, but most patients don't find CoolSculpting to be painful. Most patients feel comfortable enough to read, watch tv, and even nap during their treatment.


Allergan says that patients may experience "sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, aching, and cramping in the treatment site." These sensations subside as the treatment area becomes numb.

After Full One Round

As technology has been updated in recent years, it has made CoolSculpting much more comfortable and effective. The original applicators required significant suction to get each bulge of fat positioned between two cold panels. In our practice, we use the most up to date applicators and technology. We are known as a Complete CoolSculpting practice, as we have all the latest handpieces to treat every area, resulting in a custom treatment according to your body type.



The FDA has approved CoolSculpting as a safe medical treatment, proved the patient meets the criteria for a good candidate. We are a certified CoolSculpting practice trained on how to provide you with the best and safest treatment.


It is important to note that knockoff machines are being sold worldwide, and sometimes find their way into stateside spas and medical practices, ensure you're getting the real thing. Complications can arise from getting treated with a knockoff machine, such as getting burned and having irregularities with treatment, so beware.



You will start to see results within a month of your first treatment, with the peak of your results being visible within three months. 


Unlike liposuction, where the fat is removed, CoolSculpting releases the fat to be metabolized and eliminated by your body. The actual rate at which this happens depends on your biology. Results are cumulative -- allowing us to sculpt over time. With each subsequent treatment, you get a further reduction of the residual fat. We have a range of applicator sizes, so an area that required a larger applicator to start may be further reduced and contoured with a smaller applicator in later appointments.



CoolSculpting permanently kills 20% of fat cells in the area treated - as long as you don't gain significant weight. A healthy diet and regular exercise will help you maintain your investment. If you gain weight, fat cells that remain in the treated areas will expand.


CoolSculpting is the world's #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment, and over 1 million treatments have been performed worldwide. With CoolSculpting, you can eliminate stubborn fat cells permanently by safely and effectively freezing it away!
