What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical answer to stubborn fat. It uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells.

Is CoolSculpting a fat removal surgery?

No, there is no surgery with CoolSculpting. The treatment is done at our facility and takes as little as 35 minutes!

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is the technology behind CoolSculpting. The technology was discovered after Harvard scientists found that children who ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks– the popsicles were freezing, therefore killing, small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold can target fat cells — without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues — was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.

Does CoolSculpting work?

Yes! We have treated over 1,000 patients with CoolSculpting, and most of our patients have come back to CoolSculpt other areas of their bodies after seeing positive results. The majority of our staff members have also been treated, so we are happy to discuss our experience and results with any interested patients.

Yes! The most common treatment area is the abdomen and flanks, or “love handles.” However, it’s important to understand that there are 2 types of body fat: visceral and subcutaneous.
