Freezing away fat cells
with CoolSculpting®

Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that permanently removes extra fat cells from underneath your skin without the need for surgery. It is intended to reshape the contours of the body. During a CoolSculpting session, fatty tissue is cooled below body temperature, but above freezing. The fatty tissue undergoes localized cell death, thereafter the fat deposits are, over the course of several months, naturally processed and eliminated from the body.

Coolsculpting®is designed to freeze and kill fat cells only in specific areas of your body. The results are long-term and there is no downtime after your procedure. Considered the number one non-invasive fat-reduction procedure in the world, doctors have performed from than five million Coolsculpting®procedures. It should be noted that while Coolsculpting®permanently removes small amounts of fat cells from specific, highly targeted areas, it cannot help you lose weight, and it is not an alternative to diet, exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices.

What Is CoolSculpting?


CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-freezing treatment. It’s a completely non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise. This means no incisions, no scars, and no downtime!

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The way CoolSculpting works is by targeting certain areas of the body and exposing them to very cold temperatures. The cooling process used in CoolSculpting causes the fat cells to crystalize and gradually die off. The dead fat cells are then naturally processed by the body and excreted over a period of six to 12 weeks, leading to a trimmer figure.

Where Do Fat Cells Go After the
CoolSculpting Procedure?

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%. These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.

What Are Benefits Of CoolSculpting?

  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • No downtime
  • Very safe procedure
  • Kills fat cells only
