Is CoolSculpting safe and effective?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, non-surgical, no needles and totally non-invasive. There is little to no downtime and you can get back to daily activities right away. As of 2019, the procedure has been done more than 8 million times and continues to gain momentum as it is safe, effective and allows individuals to contour, shape and sculpt their body in ways that diet and exercise have failed to do.

How painful is CoolSculpting?

For the vast majority of people CoolSculpting is not painful or uncomfortable. However, there is a small subset of the population that do find discomfort both during the initial part of the treatment as the tissue cools, when we take the applicator off and do a 2 minute massage, and after the treatment is completed. For most it is nothing more than temporary stinging, tingling, cramping, and the short-lived sensation of pin pricks.

How many times do I have to do CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is effective each time you have a treatment. Depending on body shape, size, which area(s) you are treating, and what final results you want, we can determine how many times you will need to do CoolSculpting to reach your desired results.

How do I know if CoolSculpting is right for me?

CoolSculpting is the perfect non-invasive fat-reduction solution for those who are struggling with diet and exercise resistant fat. Perhaps you are doing everything right in terms of exercise and nutrition but because of aging, genetics, or a whole slew of other factors, you just aren’t able to achieve the body changes you want. Or perhaps over the last several years or decades you feel you haven’t done your best and have packed on some additional weight and you’re hopeful to get back on the bandwagon and regain your confidence and body shape. If you are 5-25 pounds from a healthy weight and you are looking to sculpt, contour, reshape, resize, or debulk one or more areas of your body, CoolSculpting could be the perfect solution!

Does CoolSculpting work on men and women?

Absolutely! Fat cells do not discriminate. Whether you are male or female, if you struggle with pockets of fat on your body that seem to be exercise and diet resistant, or you are looking to jump start your new health, fitness, or nutrition routine, CoolSculpting can help you get there. CoolSculpting is equally as effective on males and females.

Will I lose weight with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Fat cells certainly take up a lot of space and have a lot of volume, but they don’t weigh very much. The opposite is true of muscle. Lean muscle weighs more than fat but doesn’t take up a ton of space. So although you won’t see the scale change if you do CoolSculpting in isolation, you will see undeniable results. CoolSculpting can sculpt, contour, reshape, resize, and debulk parts of your body that don’t care how many hours you put in at the gym or how well you eat. And if you are just starting a weight loss journey, CoolSculpting can help you achieve your goals faster, stay on track and see changes that you can achieve with diet and exercise alone.

Before & After

Will CoolSculpting help after pregnancy?

So many of our clients are moms. They love their children and have poured their hearts and souls into them. But what they are less than thrilled with is the impact the kids have had on their body, confidence and self-perception. Often mothers have a tough time regaining their pre-baby body no matter how hard they workout or how well they eat. Rather than continually beating themselves up, they look to CoolSculpting to reshape, contour, sculpt and resize the area(s) of their bodies that changed during and after pregnancy. Fortunately CoolSculpting works beautifully on fat regardless of if you are male, female, younger, older, mom or no mom. It will freeze away that stubborn fat and leave you with undeniable results you are thrilled with.

Are CoolSculpting results permanent?

A little known fact: by the time you are 9-13 years old the number of fat cells you have is set. That’s right, you have the same number of fat cells you did decades ago. Well, then why do you now have fat when then you didn’t? The fat cells expanded. When we gain weight our fat cells expand; we don’t make new ones. And when we lose weight our fat cells shrink; we don’t get rid of them. So when we use CoolSculpting to freeze fat cells, they die and then over 2-4 months flush out of the body. We actually got rid of FAT CELLS and once that happens you will not remake them! However, you must do your part. You still have fat cells that can expand and give you the illusion that you “un did” your CoolSculpting results. This is why it is important to continue with whatever you are doing (or if you are just starting to eat healthy and exercise, continue ramping that up) so you can appreciate the results for a lifetime.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

CoolSculpting cost will boil down to 3 main factors. What area needs treating? How large is that area? How much fat needs to be reduced? Bodies are unique and not one size fits all, therefore your CoolSculpting treatment plan will be unique to you. We understand that you may want to know a range so you don’t waste your time. We’ve treated people for $600 and others for $15,000, a huge range, we know! One thing we can tell you, regardless of the cost of your treatment, we guarantee your results. Our consultations are always no-obligation. They are just an opportunity to map out your custom treatment plan, show you before and after photos and discover if CoolSculpting is a good choice for you!

How does CoolSculpting work?

How does CoolSculpting get rid of fat cells? With cold of course! The CoolSculpting machine will chill your fat cells to a certain temperature for a specific amount of time and your body will tell that fat cell to die. Luckily a fat cell is much more intolerant to cold than other cells in your body. No other cells, such as nerve, skin or muscle cells are damaged. After the treatment a 2 minute massage will damage the crystallized fat cells so the body can’t repair them. The dead fat cells will take 2-4 months to flush out of your body – about a french fry of fat a day flushes out! The skin is not negatively compromised and results are beautiful and lasting. Once the fat cell is gone it is gone for good and will not come back!
