Find Out If You're a Candidate!

The very first step is to call us to arrange a consultation. After an exam with one of our experienced, caring team members, we can determine if CoolSculpting is capable of achieving your goals. This technology makes it possible to slim down those areas of stubborn fat. It's not a weight loss method, but a highly effective way to sculpt and define your body.

Questions to Ask at Your Consultation

We encourage you to bring us any and all questions on your mind. We want you to be informed when you decide whether CoolSculpting is right for you. Spend some time writing down questions you have for us, such as:

  • Why am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
  • Will the device work on the specific area of my body that I want to slim down?
  • What should I wear to the appointment?
  • How long should I plan to be at your practice?
  • Can I go back to my job right away?
  • What's the best way to preserve the results I get?

CoolSculpting works by the power of freezing temperature, which destroys fat cells without affecting surrounding tissues or your skin.

Your CoolSculpting Treatment Session

We ensure each of our patients is comfortable and relaxed for the duration of the session. At first, you'll feel coolness across the surface of your skin. You may even feel some light tingling from the cold. After a little while, the skin numbs because of the temperature. You may feel the sensation of gentle tugging as the treatment area is drawn into the cooling applicator.

During all of this, you can sit back and relax. Read a book. Check your social profiles! Catch up on news. Whatever you feel like.

After CoolSculpting

Once the treatment is complete, you can get back to any activities you had planned, including work, exercise, seeing friends, chores around the house, etc. You won't see an immediate difference because CoolSculpting needs time to work. Your results will look their best after three to four months, once your body has eliminated the destroyed fat cells. Some people see a difference as soon as a few weeks after their session. Additionally, the fat cells that were destroyed are gone for good, so you can maintain your new body shape with a healthy, active lifestyle to prevent new fat cell accumulation.
