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. 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.
How does the CoolSculpting treatment work?
CoolSculpting starts with an initial consultation with a certified CoolSculpting medical provider. During the consultation, the provider will go over desired areas of treatment, the number of treatments that might be required to reach the desired contour as well as the cost associated with the overall treatment plan. The length of the CoolSculpting procedure depends upon the number of areas of the body which need treatment and the number of treatments necessary in that single area. A single treatment on one area takes exactly 1 hour. Once the treatment plan has been established during the consultation, a treatment day is scheduled and a down payment is taken.
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. During the beginning of the procedure, typical sensations include tugging, pulling, and chilliness in the treatment area. However, these sensations usually disappear after 5-10 minutes from the start of the treatment. During the treatment, individuals may read, watch TV, work on their laptop, eat, or even nap! Upon completion of the treatment, the applicator is gently removed and the underlying tissue is massaged for 2 minutes. Minimal bruising, redness, and temporary numbness may occur following the treatment but resolve within one week. CoolSculpting requires no downtown and individuals may even work out following their treatment!

What results can I expect?
The Coolsculpting applicator reduces fat cells in the targeted area by 20-25%. Results from the procedure are noticeable one month after the procedure, but fat cells are continually eliminated from the body up to 3 months following the procedure! Additional CoolSculpting treatments can be performed in the same targeted area 1 month following the initial treatment, resulting in an additional fat reduction. CoolSculpting is not an ideal treatment for massive weight loss, but for stubborn areas of fat. In addition, 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.

What Our Clients Are Saying
I grew up being an athlete and have tried to maintain the athlete mentality when it comes to exercise and fueling my body. However, I have always been self-conscious about my midsection that seems to never decrease in size no matter how much I workout or decrease calories. After meeting with Kaitlyn, the Nurse Practitioner at Your Wellness Center for a consultation, she concluded that I would be a good candidate for Cool Sculpting. It sounded like a great choice given that going under the knife was not a viable option for me yet. After some research, I decided to go for it and had my whole abdominal section and love handles done. I was able to get work done and even watch my favorite Netflix show, Scandal, while the procedure was being done in a very comfortable environment. Kaitlyn is very knowledgeable and the whole staff at Your Wellness Center made me feel comfortable and in good hands. I was able to go about my day normally with minimal discomfort. In about a month, I was already able to see changes. It was so exciting! The thought of not having to be self-conscious about that area was amazing. I am so thankful to Kaitlyn and Your Wellness Center for creating such a special environment that made me feel comfortable enough to get the Cool Sculpting done. I can’t thank them enough!
I’ve always been committed to diet and exercise, but have never been able to get rid of my stubborn, dreaded “muffin top!” I’ve never been one to attempt gimmicky procedures or diet fads to help alleviate that pesky bulge. I also was not comfortable with an invasive procedure such as liposuction, so I thought my bulge was here to stay until I started researching CoolSculpting. At my consultation with Kaitlyn, the Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, we determined I was a good candidate to have my abdomen and love handles done. There is no downtime after the procedure and in 5 short weeks, I saw the results. For the first time in years, I was able to wear a fitted shirt that was actually tucked into my pants!!!!
I cannot say enough about the staff at Your Wellness Center. Kaitlyn was fantastic and the procedure is performed in a “homey” environment. I feel like a new person and cannot wait to continue “tucking in” my shirts!!!! Thanks again!!!
Since the birth of my first child ten years ago, I have been stuck in a size 12. CoolSculpting has completely restored my confidence that I use to have in my body. The procedure was so quick and painless, it almost seemed too good to be true. Now when I get dressed in the morning I feel more assertive pulling on my size 8 pants!
