CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved treatment using controlled cooling to target areas prone to excess fat. The treatment uses a completely safe technology to target fat cells while causing zero damage to surrounding tissue. It uses a handheld device that delivers intensely cold temperatures to cause the death of fat cells beneath the skin. The technology was born from a study that proved children who sucked on popsicles lost fat cells inside their cheek. After years of research and development the treatment was awarded its FDA approval for this non-invasive method of removing fat cells. Guests struggling to lose fat around the chin, love handles, torso, or thighs are encouraged to talk to their healthcare specialist about this treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is a Cool Sculpting right for me?
CoolSculpting is right for guests that can’t seem to rid themselves of unwanted fat no matter how strict their diet or fitness regime. Guests that want a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for these symptoms can receive the treatment with little to no downtime. This being said, CoolSculpting is mainly designed for body contouring, and not major weight loss. It is perfect for patients within twenty pounds of their desired weight.
What is the procedure like?
After a thorough consultation with your healthcare professional, designated treatment areas will be marked on the guests. A gel pad will be placed on the skin to protect it during treatment. Excess fat will be pushed into the handheld device. The treatment takes about one hour, and during that time it is up our guests’ discretion in terms of how they use their time. Many guests read, watch a movie, or take a nap as the applicator works. Guests should not experience pain during this treatment. After the treatment guests may return to their daily life as there is no downtime required for this treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Guests can expect to lose between twenty to thirty percent of the fat in their treated area after their first session. It is up to the guest and his or her medical professional to decide what is best moving forward. Numbers of treatments are often limited due to the effectiveness of this treatment.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
Guests can enjoy the non-invasive, non-surgical option to body contouring that allows for no downtime and minimal discomfort. It is great for patients needing a minor reduction in fat or for those who do not desire an invasive procedure for fat loss. The procedure effectively kills fat cells making it easier for guests to reach their aesthetic goals.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, guests can expect for the treated area to be red and some slight skin misconfiguration.

Guests can expect to return to their daily life as there is no downtime to this procedure.
