Home » CoolSculpting® & Fat Reduction » What Is CoolSculpting?

Stubborn fat is stressful. It sends you down all kinds of roads from calorie counting and fad diets to gym memberships and home exercise routines. If you’ve tried every diet known to mankind, amped up the workouts, and found yourself more stressed than when you started, there is a non-surgical fat reduction solution. It’s called CoolSculpting, and it’s one of our body sculpting specialties.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared fat-freezing procedure that targets and eliminates diet — and exercise — resistant fat. The best part is it’s a non-surgical fat reduction treatment, which means there’s no surgery or downtime.

What is CoolSculpting good for? It can shape seven of the hardest areas to shed unwanted fat from:

  1. Abdomen
  2. Arms
  3. Back
  4. Love handles
  5. Bra fat
  6. Double chin
  7. Inner and outer thighs

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting safely and precisely freezes stubborn fat so your body can naturally eliminate it.  The process starts by placing a CoolSculpting applicator on the pocket of unwanted fat.  Then, the area is cooled in a controlled way that doesn’t damage the skin but does freeze the fat cells.  These fat cells eventually die and are then naturally eliminated from the body over the next 12 weeks or so.  CoolSculpting produces extraordinary results, taking the stress out of toning away stubborn fat.

The Benefits of CoolSculpting

As experts in CoolSculpting, our clinicians have seen the benefits of this dual non-surgical fat reduction technique first hand. You can expect:

  • A Non-Invasive and Convenient Approach: Imagine losing fat while reading, answering emails, catching up on your favorite TV show, or snagging some Zs. It’s not too good to be true! CoolSculpting is so non-invasive and convenient that you can spend the treatment time relaxing or remaining productive.
  • Safe, Speedy, and Effective Results: CoolSculpting works by targeted and controlled cooling of the fat cells in troublesome areas. Then, the body’s normal metabolic process takes over to devour those cells for good. It’s the safest and most effective fat loss procedure available. No nasty needles. No scary surgeries. No waiting months to see results – most patients start to see changes in as few as THREE WEEKS!
  • Minimal Side Effects: Some patients experience mild sensations during treatment including pulling, tugging, cramping, and tingling. Post treatment side effects can include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, numbness and tenderness that last a few days or weeks. You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.


Every member of our team – including our front desk staff – is highly trained. We all have the education of a master esthetician or higher, so you can rest assured you’re in great hands.  Read more about how much coolsculpting costs here.
