What Is Coolsculpting

It's a common complaint: People who are physically fit and at a stable weight still have bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat they can't get rid of no matter how much they exercise or diet. Spot reducing fat through diet and exercise is practically impossible for many of us.

Men and women alike face the frustrating truth every day: A muffin top. Love handles. Back fat—not much, but just enough to show through a snug-fitting t-shirt or blouse. These small areas of fat don't seem to warrant a surgical procedure. But they're tempted. What else can they do? CoolSculpting™: The Cool Solution.

Targeting Fat Lose Areas

Now you can attack these problem areas with the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. A team of scientists and physicians developed the CoolSculpting procedure to address these problems. CoolSculpting utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target, cool, and eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue.

Treatments That Are Quick With Great Results

After a one- to three-hour CoolSculpting procedure, the patient's body goes to work. Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from the body.

What Will The Results Be After Coolsculpting

The CoolSculpting by Zeltiq procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20 to 40%. Scientific testing has found an average reduction of 20%. If the patient's treatment plan calls for an additional procedure to get rid of love handles or back fat, this will be done after two to four months, depending on the doctor's advice. An additional 20% reduction can be experienced, resulting in a total fat loss of 40%. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the case.

What Happens During Coolsculpting

The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. For instance, if your goal is to reduce your love handles, the doctor will position the system on your side. The device then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the tissue will be cooled most efficiently.

What Does Coolsculpting Feel Like

As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. The patient is seated comfortably or lying down during the one- to three-hour procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap.

Is There Recovery Down Time?

Nope. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.

When Will I Be Able To See Results

Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But the body is still flushing fat cells, and will continue doing so for up to four months.

Are Results Permanent?

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.

Is CoolSculpting by Zeltiq Right for Me?

  • Do you have noticeable bulges or bumps that you would like reduced?
  • Do you want subtle, natural-looking results?
  • Do you want a procedure with little to no pain or discomfort?
  • Do you need a procedure with no downtime?
  • Do you prefer a natural process over drugs, chemicals, or surgery?

I received very good and excellent treatment. I feel great! Thank you!

Maria C.


I wanted to thank you and your clinic for the service and care that you provided me. My decision to see a dermatologost was mainly career driven. I saw it as an investment to feel more confident in meetings and interviews. Well, it seems the treatment plan including the Aramis Laser may have paid off. My skin feels and looks better than I can remember in a long time. Due in no small part to your efforts.

I wanted you to know that you should be proud of the work you do and that you make a difference in people's lives.
