Can help eliminate fat
CoolSculpting® can provide noticeable results.
How it works
The Coolsculpting® procedure uses targeted cryolipolysis, or “fat freezing,” to break down fat cells while minimizing damage to the skin or surrounding tissues.
CoolSculpting® treatments target visible fat bulges all over the body, specifically:
Under the chin (submental area)
Along the jawline
Abdomen and flank
Underneath the buttocks
Your treatment – what to expect
Treatment time varies based on the area of the body being treated.
A gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to a specific area. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching.
As the name suggests, CoolSculpting® can be a little chilly, but the feeling usually subsides within 5–10 minutes as the area numbs.
During your procedure, feel free to read, browse social media, or take a nap!
The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, which typically makes returning to normal activities an easy process. Some patients return to work immediately after their CoolSculpting® treatment.
In the following weeks, your body naturally processes and eliminates dead cells. CoolSculpting® results are typically long lasting.
Most patients see results in 90-days. Your body will still be flushing fat cells for up to 6 months after treatment.
After treatment, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent fat cells from reappearing.

*The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for weight loss.
Important Safety Information
The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
Tell your doctor if you have any medical conditions including recent surgery, pre-existing hernia, and any known sensitivities or allergies.
During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.
Rare side effects may also occur. CoolSculpting® may cause a visible enlargement in the treated area which may develop two to five months after treatment and requires surgical intervention for correction.
