Coolsculpting

What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared alternative to surgical liposuction that uses Cryolipolysis™ fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively kill unwanted fat cells. No anesthetic is needed, and no incisions need to be made. You can return to your regular routine right after being treated. With targeted cooling, your fat is safely chilled to damage the fat cells without harming any of your surrounding skin or tissue. During the weeks that follow the treatment, your body will naturally eliminate the damaged fat cells, leaving you looking slimmer.

Seat back and relax while we remove your stubborn fat

What happens during your treatment?
CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical procedure. When you come in for your procedure our CoolSculpting staff will place a protective gel pad over the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, the CoolSculpting device will use a combination of gentle vacuum pressure and cooling to treat the fat below the skin and freeze and kill the unwanted fat cells. The most common areas we treat are the waist, thighs, “saddlebags”, abdomen, “love handles” and “muffin tops”.

The treatment time takes about an hour, in which most of our patients relax comfortably in our customized CoolSculpting relaxation rooms. Read a book, surf the Internet or even watch a movie on one of our private wide screen televisions. Our goal is to make your treatment time as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
Yes, right away. Since CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Most times patients return to work after the session is over.

When will I see results?
You may start to see changes in the treated areas as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Your CoolRenewal Spa treatment consultant will work with you to verify and document your results. Nothing says “WOW” more than your personal “Before and After” photos.

Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. Once eradicated, they will not reappear if healthy exercise and lifestyle are maintained.
