CoolSculpting is a truly unique, noninvasive treatment that eliminates undesirable fat from localized areas that have never responded to diet and exercise. This innovative procedure uses a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis to target, freeze, and permanently eliminate fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. Patients obtain a noticeable and natural looking decrease of fat in treated areas, creating a smoother body contour. The most noticeable effects are seen in the abdomen, love handles, and back. The average CoolSculpting procedure takes 1-2 hours, and results in a 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated areas. These results are noticed within 2-4 months following the treatment. Because CoolSculpting is entirely noninvasive, there is no need for anesthesia, injections, or incisions. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime, which means you can return to your normal activities right away.
