CoolSculpting® offers a non-surgical alternative to liposuction fat removal. Many people often carry pockets of fat in the abdomen, hips, flanks, thighs, arms, and chin, even if they are otherwise healthy and at their ideal weight. The Center for Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine’s professional and experienced dermatologists can help you determine your unique treatment plan with CoolSculpting® during your complimentary consultation.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an innovative, new technique that uses cryolipolysis. This means that it kills fat cells by freezing them with a safe and effective handpiece that is applied to the area of concern. Once the fat cells are frozen and killed, the body safely excretes them as waste and they can no longer be stored or expand with weight gain, meaning the results are long-lasting.
What Can I Expect With CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a low pain, safe, and easy procedure. Once your treatment plan has been determined during your consultation, the fat-freezing applicator is applied to the problem areas. CoolSculpting® is safe and precise, leaving the skin unaffected— in fact, the CoolSculpting® system contains sensors that detect whether the skin becomes too cold during the treatment and immediately halts the freezing. CoolSculpting® is only performed by our specially-trained professionals that have undergone extensive CoolSculpting® training.
Since CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, there’s no downtime required, and you can even get right back to your normal activities. There may be some redness, irritation, or numbness in the treatment area, but it usually resolves quickly. The best results from your CoolSculpting® treatment plan will begin to be visible within two to four months, and are best paired with a healthy, active lifestyle to ensure you get the best out of your CoolSculpting® treatment.

Is CoolSculpting better than liposuction?
Liposuction and CoolSculpting are two very different treatments that target stubborn fat. The treatment option that’s right for you will depend on a number of factors including your concerns, their severity, and whether you are ready for surgery or not.
How much fat can CoolSculpting remove?
The amount of stubborn fat that is destroyed during CoolSculpting will depend on the treatment location and the number of treatment sessions you have. Most patients see noticeable improvements to their contour after optimal treatment sessions.
Can CoolSculpting help me lose weight?
CoolSculpting can improve your contour by removing fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, however, it is not an alternative to weight loss. You should be within your ideal weight range prior to receiving CoolSculpting.
