The benefits of gently freezing fat with CoolSculpting®

You’re active. You eat nutritious foods. But you still have areas of stubborn fat you wish would go away.

Sound familiar?

It may be time to ease your frustration—and get real results—with CoolSculpting®. This safe, non-surgical fat-freezing treatment gently contours areas like the stomach, back, thighs, upper arms, chin, and more.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® uses advanced technology to freeze targeted areas of fat cells. Once treated, your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells over time to reveal a more svelte silhouette.

Is CoolSculpting® safe?

CoolSculpting has been FDA cleared since 2010 and doesn’t require any downtime or anesthesia.

How long does it take to see real results from CoolSculpting®?

Many people notice their body slimming in as little as three weeks, with the most dramatic changes appearing around two months after treatment. How long it takes to see real results depends on the number of treatments you need and how quickly your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells. Most people benefit from two or more CoolSculpting® sessions.

Does CoolSculpting® hurt?

CoolSculpting® is minimally invasive, but that doesn’t mean it’s entirely pain-free. Some people describe feeling uncomfortable during treatments because of tugging, pulling and freezing sensations. Side effects afterward are usually mild.

Is CoolSculpting right for me?

While CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution for obesity, it can be a great way to finally achieve fat-reduction results that you’ve been working tirelessly toward—and stop wondering why you’re not making more progress. (Spoiler alert: Sometimes genetics and other health factors can make it impossible to get rid of excess fat through diet and exercise alone.)
