What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a state-of-the-art cosmetic treatment that is designed to destroy stubborn fat with controlled cooling technology. This allows it to treat specific treatment areas without affecting the surrounding tissue. The treatment is incredibly precise and is capable of targeting many areas of the body, including the arms, neck, inner and outer thighs, shoulders, and abdomen.

The treatment can be customized to fit the needs of each individual and produces excellent results without the need for invasive plastic surgery.

How Coolsculpting Works

The number of fat cells varies from person to person, but it doesn’t change much once you’re an adult. You have a certain number of fat cells, and they expand or shrink according to your diet and exercise routine. Some people may have stubborn pockets of fat that are more difficult to reduce despite diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting® literally freezes and kills fat cells. Our experts spent years developing and refining the process.  It targets, freezes, and eliminates treated fat cells in 9 different areas using a fat-freezing technology known as cryolipolysis. This non-invasive process naturally eliminates up to 20-25% of treated fat cells over a 1-3 month period.

CoolSculpting® applies targeted cooling to trouble spots to freeze and eliminate fat cells. It can reduce stubborn fat by up to 20-25% in the treatment areas, all with little to no downtime and no surgery.

CoolSculpting Benefits

CoolSculpting has become an incredibly popular treatment due to its ability to produce stunning results without the hassle of a long period of downtime commonly associated with other body contouring procedures. It can help give you a slimmer, sculpted body without incisions or a long period of recovery. Patients can easily return to their normal daily lives immediately after the procedure.

Ideal Candidates For CoolSculpting

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are those who want to redefine their bodily contours but have no interest in undergoing invasive surgery. It’s an excellent treatment option for those who are within their ideal weight range but are still plagued by areas of stubborn fat that won’t go away. During a consultation, our CoolSculpting experts will perform an assessment of your body and ask you about your medical history to determine if you would make a good fit for the procedure.

Your CoolSculpting Procedure

Your CoolSculpting journey begins with a consultation with one of our CoolSculpting experts. The procedure begins with the application of a cooling applicator to specific areas of the body. The controlled cooling technology will freeze the stubborn fat in the area until they crystalize. Over the course of time, the fat will reduce in size and be naturally eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system.


The cost of a CoolSculpting treatment varies depending on the areas being treated and the number of sessions required to achieve the ideal results. Our CoolSculpting experts will develop your personalized treatment plan and discuss the associated costs during your consultation. We also have affordable financing options available to help assist with payments.
