Cool expertise

CoolSculpting is the perfect procedure for someone who wants to “spot reduce” fat but simply doesn’t have the time to be out of work for even a day. Developed by Harvard scientists, Coolsculpting uses a targeted cooling process that kills fat cells beneath the skin in specific areas of the body, without damaging other tissue. It only takes an hour per area and there’s NO recovery time at all. This means you can literally be back at your desk a couple hours after you arrive at our facility.


During the treatment, an applicator is applied to the skin surface to deliver precisely controlled cooling to a target area. The temperature used only allows fat cells to be fronzen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. Once crystalized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. On average the treated area shrinks by about 15-20% and with repeat treatments, the bulge will shrink even more. Results are often visible in 2-3 weeks and continue to improve for 3 months. CoolSculpting is most effective on the abdomen and love handles, but can be used in other areas as well.



  • Does CoolSculpting hurt?

    Generally, there is a suctioning sensation and there may be tingling during or after the procedure. Most of our patients have felt nothing. All have gone back to work the same day of the procedure and none of them have needed any anesthetic or medications before or after the procedure, but we do offer these if needed or requested.
  • When can I see the results?

    Most of our patients start seeing results in 2-3 weeks and the results will be seen over about four months. The areas treated will gradually decrease in size to your eventual shape. If another treatment is desired, that is done at about four months after the initial treatment. Package rates are applied if you desire to have more than one treatment or if multiple areas are treated on the same day.
  • What are the best areas to treat?

    Generally, the abdomen and flanks are the best areas to treat, but other areas such as the arms, inner thighs and outer thighs can also be treated in many people. In most people, the areas go back with minimal or no laxity of the skin, but if you have loose skin to begin with, there will likely be loose skin after the procedure. Cellulite may also be more obvious after the procedure if you have it initially.
  • Can Coolsculpting work in-place of diet and exercise?

    We look for motivated individuals who are within 10 to 15 pounds of goal weight. This is NOT a solution to avoid diet and exercise and will not result in much improvement if you don’t work hard after the procedure to diet and exercise. By the same token, if you are too thin, it won’t have much of an effect and can be more painful than if you have enough fat to ‘pinch an inch’. Our expert providers will determine if you are a good candidate at the time of your free consultation.
