What can CoolSculpting do for you?
Fat cells can be permanently destroyed by cold temperatures. It’s a scientific fact.
The technology behind CoolSculpting was developed by medical scientists at Harvard University and the world-renowned Massachusetts General Hospital. CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared, noninvasive procedure which uses extreme cold to permanently destroy fat cells almost anywhere in the body. It’s not surgery, and there’s no downtime. When used properly and on the right candidates, CoolSculpting can provide long-lasting body contour improvements. It’s an excellent option for patients who want to achieve a slimming effect without invasive liposuction. And the Coolsculpting cost is less than the cost of Liposuction
Much like liposuction, CoolSculpting is best used on diet and exercise resistant pockets of fat. Areas where, despite our best efforts, fat seems to accumulate almost effortlessly. Are you generally fit, have reached a stable bodyweight, yet still have “problem” areas you’d like to get rid of? If you’ve reached a fat loss plateau, there’s a good chance CoolSculpting can help.
CoolSculpting is designed specifically to treat traditional problem areas. These include:
- The abdomen (stomach area)
- Love handles (flanks)
- Beneath the neck (neck folds, double chin)
- Bra area (upper torso fat deposits)
- Thighs and legs
- Male breasts (gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia)
- Upper arms
- “Banana roll” deposits (beneath the buttocks)
- Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
- Can permanently destroy fat cells
- Results look and feel natural—because they are
During each session, some of the fat cells in the area are damaged beyond repair. In the following months, these frozen cells are absorbed back into the body, never to return. This results in a gradual slimming, toning effect that isn’t achievable with any other competing treatment. Most patients see the bulk of their results during the first eight weeks, yet results can continue to develop for up to six months.
CLEARED BY THE US-FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
Developed by the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Wellman Center for Photomedicine, CoolSculpting is the only cold-based therapy for fat reduction cleared by the FDA. The treatment uses controlled bursts of extreme cold to terminate subcutaneous (beneath the skin) fat deposits. This fat-freezing technology is safe, comfortable, and effective on nearly any area of the body. It’s tough on stubborn fat, yet surprisingly easy on the body.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
Each treatment takes about 1 hour. Patients typically report a sudden burst of cold, followed by a sensation of pressure. The treatment itself isn’t uncomfortable, with many patients even falling asleep! Most use the time to get some reading or a quick bit of work done.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA cleared, cold-based fat reduction system available today. Much like liposuction, it’s highly invasive counterpart, CoolSculpting is specifically designed to target stubborn pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat. Reasons to choose CoolSculpting include:
- It’s not a surgery
- It’s completely non-invasive
- There’s no anesthesia necessary
- There’s very little downtime (or none at all)
The CoolSculpting system delivers precisely targeted cold therapy to safely target unwanted fat deposits beneath the skin. By design and through several safety features, the skin itself remains unaffected.
Before using the CoolSculpting system, practitioners must undergo a closely monitored training and certification process. These treatments are only performed in medical offices under the express supervision of a medical doctor.
The CoolSculpting device itself is equipped with both active and passive safety measures. If sensors detect that the treatment temperature is too cold, or if too much time has elapsed, the machine immediately powers off.

How fat cells are frozen away
- Due largely to genetics and hormonal balance, some people tend to develop fat in traditional “problem areas.” These include the stomach (abdomen), flanks (love handles), thighs, and buttocks to name a few.
- The body is “programmed” to store fat in these areas. This makes the resulting fat deposits are very resistant to exercise and a reduced calorie diet.
- CoolSculpting takes advantage of the fact that fat cells can be destroyed by exposure to cold. This process is known as cryolipolysis. Since other types of cells are more cold-resistant, CoolSculpting either damages surrounding cells very minimally or not at all.
- In the following months these fat cells are re-absorbed and metabolized by the body. This is a natural process.
- CoolSculpting delivers long-term results. Once a fat cell is destroyed it can’t come back.
Taking the first step: schedule a one-on-one consultation
While CoolSculpting is a safe and effective option for most people it isn’t for everyone. Not everyone is a good candidate for CoolSculpting, so scheduling an initial consultation is a must. It’s the start of a journey to a leaner, more toned, more confident you.
Your initial visit
You’ll sit down with a CoolSculpting provider, who is usually a medical doctor, physician’s assistant, or a registered nurse. They’ll tell you about the process and answer any questions you might have. A focused medical history is then taken to find out if CoolSculpting is likely to be a safe, effective option for you.
At this point you’ll discuss your problem areas and exactly what you’d like to accomplish. You and your provider will view your body from various angles and develop a treatment plan. During the following visit’s you’ll receive treatment. It’s really that easy.
Everyone’s body is slightly different—your treatments will be tailored specifically to yours.
No two patients are exactly the same. This means that there’s no single “cookie cutter” treatment plan. Everyone has different problem areas, goals, and fat deposits can vary greatly in size. The CoolSculpting system has different settings and treatment attachments so plans are very customizable. Based on your provider’s expertise you’ll develop one which addresses your precise needs and is perfect for you!
Get rid of unwanted fat in your “problem areas” with CoolSculpting technology
Many patients find that several CoolSculpting treatments get rid of stubborn fat they’ve been bothered by for years. While you’ll certainly see results with a single treatment, you’ll most likely need two to three per area to achieve optimal, permanent results. Oftentimes patients have multiple areas treated. Depending on your facility’s CoolSculpting equipment it’s often possible to target several areas in a single session. When compared with the expense and downtime of traditional liposuction CoolSculpting is the obvious choice for many.
What does a CoolSculpting treatment feel like? Is it painful?
“Does it hurt?” is one of the most commonly asked questions about CoolSculpting. The short answer is no. It’s no exaggeration that some patients are able to fall asleep during treatment.
Not surprisingly, you’ll feel an intense cold at first. This is targeted at your deeper tissues, which aren’t nearly as sensitive as your skin. Once the area begins to get numb most patients feel little to no cold-related discomfort. This usually takes five or so minutes.
The CoolSculpting treatment attachment uses a vacuum to pull fatty deposits away from the body. This brings as much fatty tissue as possible into the treatment chamber and is a key component of CoolSculpting. Because of this it’s normal to feel a pulling, tugging sensation throughout the treatment.
What can I do during my treatment?
Anything you want, so long as you’re relatively still. Most patients do some reading, check their email, or catch up on social media. Others take a quick nap. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be getting rid of stubborn fat deposits while you’re doing it!
How about recovery time?
CoolSculpting isn’t surgery, and downtime is minimal or non-existent. You’ll be able to resume your routine almost immediately. You can go to work, school, exercise, or anything else you’d normally do, with no restrictions.
Does CoolSculpting have any side effects?
Before the treatment area becomes numb you’ll feel a short period of intense cold. The CoolSculpting device uses a vacuum to draw as much tissue as possible into the treatment cup. You’ll feel a gentle tugging sensation and some pinching which will soon subside as numbness sets in.
After treatment, you’re likely to experience mild swelling and redness over the treated area. If you bruise easily it’s likely you’ll have some minor bruising. Other less common post-treatment sensations include stinging, tenderness, cramping, itching, and a sense firmness. Some patients experience a harmless sense of fullness in the back of the throat.
All of these effects are minor and temporary, and usually disappear within 7 to 14 days. In extremely rare cases other side effects have occurred, including mild cold injuries. There are no recorded cases where this resulted in lasting damage.
FAT FREEZING DURING THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only these fat cells.
