We are happy to offer Coolsculpting®, a breakthrough in the science of fat reduction. It reduces stubborn fat bulges that are not easily reduced through diet and exercise. It’s a non-invasive procedure that is gentle and effective.
“I am happy with the result and I’m coming back for more. (I had) no pain during the one-hour sculpting. (It was) little tender for a couple of days.. after a week, no more discomfort. I do recommend it. It’s the best (way) to start."-Sonia Heilman, CoolSculpting Patient
During the procedure, an applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the target, thereby eliminating fat cells in specific areas of your body without harming the surrounding tissue. Fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body, similar to how fat from food is eliminated. The result is a natural looking fat reduction that is visible in most patients in two to four months. The ideal candidate for this procedure is relatively fit, but has some modest-size fat bulges. Procedure results are noticeable without the need for needles, incisions, anesthesia, or pain medication and there is no recovery time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate for the Coolsculpting procedure?
Coolsculpting is not for weight loss. The ideal candidate is relatively fit and is within 20 to 25lbs of their ideal weight. They are seeking spot reduction in specific areas that diet and exercise won't address.
How long does the procedure take?
Procedure time can be two hours or more depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Does the Coolsculpting procedure hurt?
The Coosculpting procedure is comfortable for most patients. No anesthesia is needed. Most patients are comfortable enough to read or work on their laptop computers.
What should I expect after treatment?
Coolsculpting is a completely non-invasive treatment, which allows you to return to your normal activities on the same day as the treatment. There may be tenderness, minor bruising, and numbness to the area in the days and weeks following treatment, which resolves over time.
How is the Coolsculpting procedure different from other procedures?
The controlled cooling of the coolsculpting procedure targets and eliminates only fat cells without harming the skin, or disrupting other cells. Over 2-4 months, there is a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer by 20-25%. Coolsculpting is completely non-invasive with no downtime.
