A new and innovative way to contour the body, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, fat-freezing procedure performed more than two million times around the world. Cleared by the FDA, it is specifically designed to freeze away and remove fat from the body.
CoolSculpting technology targets fat cells underneath the skin, cooling them gently and carefully to freeze and kill those cells. Over time, the body eliminates these cells, leaving behind a leaner, more sculpted appearance.
Men and women who have unwanted fat around their midsections, outer thighs, on their chins or elsewhere, may benefit from the CoolSculpting procedure.
Results appear in the weeks and months to follow, as the body processes out the treated fat cells. Because CoolSculpting is noninvasive and non-surgical, it has no downtime, and patients may return to normal activities right away.
Once the frozen fat cells are gone, they are gone permanently. For best results, multiple sessions may be required.
