What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, fat freezing procedure. It is the only FDA approved non-surgical way to remove stubborn, unwanted fat using a patented cooling technology. Our patients love this treatment because it’s quick enough to be done during a lunch break and there’s no downtime!
How does it work?
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the rest of your body. Using controlled cooling, CoolSculpting target and kills stubborn fat cells. Once the fat cells die, your body eliminates them through its natural elimination process (yes, you pee them out)! Each time you CoolSculpt an area, you eliminate 20-25% of the fat cells in that targeted area. Once those fat cells are eliminated, they are gone forever and will not return as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise. This process is not immediate and takes about 90 days to see results.
Am I a Candidate?
CoolSculpting can be done on any area of the body that has excess subcutaneous fat (the squishy, pinchable type of fat.) CoolSculpting is a great treatment for individuals that are near their ideal body weight but have stubborn areas of fat.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, we recommend consulting with our CoolSculpting expert, Melissa Pfaff. During a free consultation, you’ll discuss the area(s) that bother you, and Melissa will determine if you are a candidate and explain the treatment. She’ll also discuss pricing and give you an idea of the results you can expect.
When is the best time to get CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is performed all year round, however in order to see results by summer, we recommend CoolSculpting in early spring. Keep in mind that results are seen about 90 days after the CoolSculpting treatment.
