How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes advanced technology to quickly and painlessly freeze and destroy fat cells that ultimately help you lose inches and refine your body shape. CoolSculpting is sometimes referred to as a liposuction alternative because it can reduce fat without surgery. CoolSculpting utilizes an exclusive technology called Cryolipolysis to target fat cells. This revolutionary procedure freezes and destroys fat cells in the targeted area without damaging surrounding tissue.1

Preparing For CoolSculpting

Arrive for your CoolSculpting session in comfortable soft clothes. You’ll be provided with disposable garments to wear during your treatment as fabrics exposed to the gel we use to protect the skin may stain. Eat a salt-free non-processed snack or light meal before you arrive and limit caffeine and water intake immediately before your appointment.

CoolSculpting Recovery

CoolSculpting recovery is minimal – you can return to your normal daily activities or work immediately following your treatment. Side effects such as swelling or redness on and around the treatment site are normal and typically subside gradually over several days.

CoolSculpting’s Proven Results

Your results will appear gradually as your body metabolizes the dead fat cells. Patients are often thrilled with their individual results, which depending on the treatment area can include a flatter tummy, smoother thighs, or a more defined jaw. Fat cells will not return, and you will enjoy long-term results as long as you maintain a stable weight.
