Results You Can Actually See
CoolSculpting® works quickly to eliminate fat cells in the area treated – and once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. But if you don’t maintain your healthy diet and lifestyle, other fat cells in the area can expand and the results you achieved from your Coolsculpting® treatment will disappear.
Some patients start noticing results within 3-4 weeks after their first treatment. Maximum results typically appear within 6 months.

How CoolSculpting® Works
Freeze-Away Unwanted Fat!
You’re eating properly, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep. You’re fit, strong, and overall, a healthy person, but there’s just one problem: You can’t seem to lose the excess fat in some areas.
CoolSculpting® effectively kills stubborn fat cells by freezing them while leaving the surrounding cells untouched. And both men and women are equally responsive to the CoolSculpting® technology!
Heads Up Men – This Treatment is Also for You!
Men aren’t exempt from stubborn fat since not all fat cells respond to proper diet and exercise. In fact, as male bodies often have denser, more concentrated fat, invasive treatments like liposuction aren’t always effective.
But CoolSculpting® is a unique body contouring treatment that works more effectively to get you the results you’re looking for. So you can say goodbye to those stubborn bulges of fat you’ve been working so hard to get rid of.
After just one treatment, you’ll see just how effective this fat-freezing technology works to reduce the pockets of fat throughout your trouble areas.
Even though the results speak for themselves, sometimes it’s nice to hear about the treatment process from someone who’s been through it. Here is Jennifer’s story.
The CoolSculpting® applicator will be positioned on the treatment area. As the applicator draws in the area to be treated, you may feel a slight sucking sensation.
Once the cooling starts, the area will start to feel cold, then very cold, then it might feel hot, and then – nothing! You can sit back and relax as the machine does its magic. Some people report feeling tugging, tingling, mild pinching, stinging and aching around the treatment site, which subsides once the area becomes numb.
Once your session is complete, the applicator is removed, and your certified medical aesthetician will lightly massage the treatment area in order to allow the fat cells to break apart. The massage is essential to enhance the fat reduction process.
