Give Stubborn Fat the Cold Shoulder
You do everything you’re supposed to do: You eat right, you work out, you avoid saturated fats and processed foods and you drink 8 glasses of water a day. But, if you’re like many of us, you still struggle with bumps, bulges and rolls that just won’t budge. Nothing you do—no amount of diet or exercise—seems to have any effect.
Finally, there’s an answer: the only FDA-approved, non-surgical, patented procedure that literally freezes away excess fat cells and helps you get rid of them forever. It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not: It’s CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
Technically speaking, it’s cryolipolysis: the process of using cold to destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting is how we use cryolipolysis to remove stubborn fat from areas that are generally resistant to diet and exercise—and change the shape of our bodies.
Everyone is born with a set number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as they gain or lose weight. CoolSculpting technology applies a temperature cold enough to freeze out fat cells, but not so cold that it damages the surrounding tissue. The frozen cells die off, and the body then uses its own natural processes to flush them out…permanently.
I could feel my clothes starting to fit differently about 1 month after treatment but I couldn't have dreamed that the results would be this good at 3 months—I’ve lost 11" so far! - Heather Delaney Reese, "It’s a Lovely Life" Blogger
CoolSculpting Fast Facts
- The #1 non-surgical body treatment in the world
- Proven safe & effective through clinical trials involving more than 5,000 patients
- Used in more than 70 countries
- 5,000,000+ procedures performed to date
- 95% of patients would recommend the treatment
How It Works
It’s all based in science: Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. So, the CoolSculpting applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the target areas, freezing the fat without damaging the skin above it.
Many people see results after just one CoolSculpting treatment! Additional sessions further enhance those results, since each treatment can reduce the number of fats cells in a given area by about 20%. The frozen fat cells die and are then eliminated. You’re left with a more toned and sculpted shape.
CoolSculpting is only offered in medical offices under the supervision of trained and licensed professionals. The device includes automated built-in safety features to ensure patient safety; if it senses the skin getting too cold it immediately shuts off.

Am I a CoolSculpting Candidate?
CoolSculpting can help women and men get rid of stubborn bumps and bulges once and for all. The non-invasive treatment is designed specifically for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. It’s not a weight-loss solution, nor is it intended to treat obesity. However, if you’re generally healthy and within 30 pounds of your ideal weight, but struggling with certain areas of excess fat, it may be right for you.
If you have stubborn fat in one of these areas and you agree with four or more of the statements below, you’re likely a good candidate for CoolSculpting:
- I exercise & watch what I eat.
- I want treatment that’s non-surgical.
- I’m scared of needles.
- I don’t want any downtime.
- I want my clothes to fit better.
- I want to look better in a swimsuit.
- I want lasting, permanent results.
- I want my body back.
CoolSculpting fat-freezing technology is approved to treat multiple problem areas, including the neck, arms, stomach, back and legs.

What to Expect
Consultation & Treatment Plan
The first step of the journey to a slimmer you is a consultation with our licensed CoolSculpting technician. You’ll discuss your lifestyle, the areas of fat you want to eliminate, and your overall goals. We’ll explain the treatment and ensure you’re a good candidate for it. And together we’ll create your treatment plan, tailored just for you and designed to give you the results you’re looking for.
An average session typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. During your treatment, we position the gel pad and CoolSculpting applicator to the targeted area. The applicator draws in the tissue via suction and delivers the controlled cooling. You’ll feel a cool or cold sensation for about 5 or 10 minutes, until the skin numbs.
Patients generally report that CoolSculpting is not difficult. Most multitask during the appointment—reading, checking email, even taking a nap. And since it is nonsurgical and requires no downtime, many return to work as soon as the session is over!
There are no official aftercare instructions for CoolSculpting. The fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities immediately. Some patients benefit from keeping a compression on the target area immediately following treatment. We generally recommend that you stay hydrated and maintain a healthy level of activity.
While you may begin to see results within a few weeks of your first treatment, the most dramatic results usually happen within 2 – 3 months, and your body can continue to flush out the dead fat cells for up to 6 months. You will not weigh less following CoolSclupting, but you’ll look like you did. Your body will appear thinner and more sculpted, your clothes will fit better, and you’ll love what you see in the mirror.
