Coolsculpting is a revolutionary non surgical liposuction, developed by Harvard scientists, that freezes fat cells while leaving the overlying skin undamaged. The procedure is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to reduce fat in the treated area up to 20% in just one visit.

If you have stubborn, exercise resistant fat deposits and have been looking for a surgery free solution with no downtime this may be the perfect procedure for you. Coolsculpting utilizes cold temperatures to target and damage fat cells in the treatment area. These damaged cells are then naturally disposed of by the body, leaving a more contoured, sexier look.
What to Expect with This Revolutionary Procedure?
Because the procedure is non-invasive and targets only unwanted fat cells, there is no recovery time after the procedure. The affected fat cells are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, like fat from food. The result is a gradual reduction and smoothing of fat bulges that is apparent in most patients in two to four months. This method is completely non-invasive, which allows you return to normal activities on the same day after the procedure, such as work or exercise. Redness may appear in the treated area, which may last from a few minutes to a few hours. Some localized bruising may occur, which clears within a few weeks. Some may experience a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area lasting one to eight weeks.
Who Are The Candidates For This Procedure?
The ideal candidate are people seeking to decrease specific areas of fat, such as abdominal fat, love handles and back fat. Patients who are generally interested in a non-invasive therapy or non surgical way of removing unwanted fat that offers noticeable and fast results. This is not intended for weigh loss or obesity; nor is it a substitute for liposuction procedures that remove a large volume of fat. A good candidate should be relatively fit and have modest-size fat bulges in areas that are not easily reduced through diet or exercise.
