About the Procedure

CoolSculpting is a unique body contouring procedure that utilizes patented Cryolipolysis™ to freeze and destroy fat cells in designated areas of the body, specifically the abdomen, back, waist and flanks. Since fat freezes at a higher temperature than surrounding tissues, no surrounding tissue or skin is damaged during the procedure, so you can return immediately to your daily activities.

CoolSculpting requires no downtime, and people often check their email or talk on the phone during treatment

To begin with, the area to be treated is covered with a gel pad for comfort. The hand-held CoolSculpting handpiece gently draws the skin and underlying fat between the two cooling panels. You will feel a pulling sensation and the area will become cold, as if you were applying an ice pack. These feelings will dissipate as the area becomes numb.

CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight loss method, but as a means of reducing small areas of fat in the midsection. It is an excellent choice for people for whom liposuction is not feasible or desirable. This procedure may also be combined with other body enhancing procedures, such as breast enlargement.

Recovery After CoolSculpting

Two questions many people ask when considering any cosmetic procedure are “When can I get back to work?” and “Does the procedure hurt?” Luckily, CoolSculpting is a comfortable and quick treatment, and people can return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. In contrast to plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction, no downtime is required after treatment.

Some people will experience redness, tingling, or mild bruising following the procedure. These side effects are typically very short lived. The body will naturally process the fat cells targeted during the procedure, and you will begin to notice a more contoured body over the weeks that follow treatment. Most people see improvement within 2 to 4 months following treatment, although results vary between patients.
