What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction (“liposuction”) procedure which utilizes Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is an FDA-cleared method of using controlled cooling temperatures to target unwanted fat cells and permanently eliminate them from the body. Once frozen, the fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body over 3 months.
Your Wellness Center is able to provide the ultimate experience and comfort for patients when it comes to CoolSculpting. Clients enjoy a state-of-the-art room where they can work on their laptop/iPad, watch their favorite movies or TV shows, or listen to their favorite music while they rest their eyes. We also provide complimentary refreshments and snacks.
There are 4 steps to the treatment:
- Initial Consultation – Our certified CoolSculpting medical provider will go over desired areas of treatment, the number of treatments that might be required to reach the desired contour, and the cost associated with the overall treatment plan. Once the treatment plan has been established during the consultation, a treatment day is scheduled and a down payment is taken.
- Pre-Treatment Setup – Prior to the procedure, the treatment area is marked and covered with a skin-protecting gel pad. The unwanted excess skin and fat are then drawn into a hand-held vacuum applicator lined with cooling panels. The cooling panels reach a controlled temperature of -10 degrees Celsius.
- Treatment – During the treatment, individuals may read, watch TV, work on their laptop, eat, or even nap!
- Post-Treatment Massage – Upon completion of the treatment, the applicator is gently removed and the underlying tissue is massaged for 2 minutes.

What are the Treatment Areas?
CoolSculpting’s safe and effective FDA-cleared treatment can be performed on the upper and lower abdomen, bra line, flanks (love handles), inner and outer thigh, and the submental (double chin) areas.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
During the beginning of the procedure, typical sensations include tugging, pulling, and chilliness in the treatment area. These sensations usually disappear 5-10 minutes after the start of the treatment.
How Long Does One Treatment Take?
The length of the CoolSculpting procedure depends upon the number of areas needing treatment and the number of treatments necessary in that single area. A single treatment on one area takes exactly one hour.
How Many Treatments are Recommended?
Coolsculpting reduces fat cells in the targeted area by 20-25%. Additional CoolSculpting treatments can be performed in the same targeted area 1 month following the initial treatment, resulting in an additional fat reduction.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment? How Long Will it Take to Recover?
CoolSculpting requires no downtown, and individuals may even work out following their treatment. There may be minimal bruising, redness, and temporary numbness following the treatment, but these will resolve within one week. Results are noticeable one month after the procedure, but fat cells are continually eliminated from the body up to 3 months following the treatment!
Am I a Candidate?
CoolSculpting is not an ideal treatment for massive weight loss, but for stubborn areas of fat. If you are planning on losing a significant amount of weight, it is recommended to hold off on this procedure until you are 15-40 pounds within your ideal body weight.
