How CoolSculpting® Works

The CoolSculpting Procedure

Do you have areas of fat on your body that diet and exercise plans cannot seem to get rid of? CoolSculpting® is an easy, safe, and effective way to literally freeze fat in those stubborn areas of your body that you’ve been having a hard time targeting.

The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical. It does not burn the skin, shatter or extract cells. CoolSculpting does not use any needles or suction hoses and you will not have any scars after the procedure. There isn’t any downtime required, and it can easily be scheduled into your day. A CoolSculpting session can take anywhere between an half hour and an hour.

We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results, but clients can see results after as little as one treatment. Your individualized plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. Each body is different and we make sure you are going to see the results you want in as little time as possible.

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat with CoolSculpting. 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, check email, or even take a nap. It’s that easy!

Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror. Start to see long-term results in the areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting Procedure is right for you. The consultation is 100% free.

*Please note every patient’s experience is different and results may vary. At your complimentary consultation your CoolSculpting team will determine your treatment plan and help determine your goals and expectations.

The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

When will I see results?


You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?


No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?


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.1
