Freeze Away Fat

Spending hours at the gym or logging mile after mile can keep you healthy and in good shape. Still, certain bulges never seem to disappear. CoolSculpting targets fat cells with controlled cooling that won’t damage the skin or surrounding tissue. Once the process kills the fat cells, the body naturally removes them, so they’re gone for good.

CoolSculpting quickly became one of my favorite treatments after I saw what it could do for not only my insecurities, but for our patients. There is nothing better than restoring someone’s confidence and seeing them walk out of our office with their head held high. Thanks to CoolSculpting, our patients can see quick results with no downtime. — Andrea

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

Various factors influence the price of CoolSculpting procedures. The cost depends on the treatment areas, the number of treatment sessions needed, and a patient’s ultimate cosmetic goals. We create customized treatment plans that are tailored not only to your body and goals, but also your budget.

Treatment Areas

Thanks to the development of multiple treatment applicators, CoolSculpting can be used to reduce fat on just about any area of the body. The largest applicator, called CoolMax, is used for “de-bulking” areas such as the abdomen. Different treatment areas include:

stomach, upper abdomen, and love handles
inner and outer thighs
double chin area

You can combine different applicators to treat multiple areas. Other applicators include:

  • CoolMini™: Reduce the appearance of a double chin with CoolSculpting. The applicator fits snugly under the chin and can create a slimmer neck and more well-defined jawline.
  • CoolCore: A slightly curved applicator that is often used to reduce stubborn belly fat.
  • CoolCurve+: Contoured to fit the flanks (or “love handles”) with better suction. Patients often need 2 applicators per side to produce the desired results.
  • CoolFit: A straight applicator used for inner thighs, the back of the arms, and less frequently on the abdomen.
  • CoolSmooth: This applicator is for non-pinchable areas of stubborn fat that is most commonly used for the outer thighs.

The CoolSculpting treatment is actually rather comfortable. Some patients experience a tingling sensation during the initial few minutes of the procedure as the applicator begins cooling the treatment area, but patients often read or scroll through their smartphones during the procedure.

Common Questions

Is CoolSculpting permanent?

Fat cells destroyed during the CoolSculpting process are removed from the body through the natural elimination process. This removal is permanent and means there are fewer cells available to accumulate fat in the treatment area. However, the fat cells that remain can increase in size if you don’t exercise and eat a healthy diet.

Is there any downtime with CoolSculpting?

Unlike a lot of other procedures, CoolSculpting takes relatively little time and is quite simple to fit into your daily life. After your CoolSculpting treatment, you can typically get right back to work or other regular activities. Each treatment lasts about an hour—about the same amount of time you might spend at the gym. Many men and women actually schedule their appointments during a lunch break.

When will I see CoolSculpting results?

Your body gradually rids itself of fat cells destroyed during the CoolSculpting treatment. The sooner that happens, the sooner you’ll begin seeing results. In most cases, patients begin noticing changes as early as 2 weeks after the procedure. You likely will continue seeing results for up to 3 months after the treatment.
