CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ is a non-invasive technology that freezes stubborn fat. CoolSculpting gently targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend the one to two hours of procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
Results can be seen in as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the best results occurring over the next two to four months however individual responses may vary.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is best for those who are 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal weight who have fat bulges that are resistant to reduction through diet and exercise.
What will the results be?
Individual results vary however the average fat reduction of the treated area is 20%. Often a patient’s treatment plan calls for a second procedure depending upon the patients personal goals and situation. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the individual patient’s situation.
What happens during the procedure?
The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. For instance, if the patient’s goal is to reduce their love handles, the doctor will position the system on the patient’s 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 selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently.
What does it 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 two hour procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or simply relaxing.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
Yes. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
When will I 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 however all patients are different and individual results may vary from these norms. The body will continue flushing fat cells for up to four months.
Are the results permanent?
During the CoolSculpting procedure, the affected fat cells are damaged and will be excreted from the body in the normal healing process. That being said new fat growth is always a concern and is typically a result of poor diet and exercise. That’s why in all our CoolSculpting treatment plans we encourage patients to follow a healthy lifestyle with a combination of good diet and exercise. Results are stable and long term when you follow a good diet and exercise regimen.
