Since its FDA approval in 2010, CoolSculpting® has been used as a non-surgical fat-reducing solution for unresponsive areas of fat. After a few sessions and months, you should see more defined muscles and thinner legs, abdomen, flanks, or thighs. 

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

At Harvard University, scientists noticed children developed dimples after eating a popsicle. After further research, they discovered that the popsicles were actually freezing away pockets of fat cells, leading to the appearance of dimples. This scientific phenomenon is called cryolypolisis. CoolSculpting® is a technology that was formed as a result of this research.


Using cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells, reducing fat in the treatment area up to 25%. Fat cells are more susceptible to the cold, meaning surrounding cells, nerves, and tissue remain undamaged while the fat cells are freezed away. 

One of our skilled experts will apply a gel and an applicator to the treatment area. The fat cells crystallize and denature. Over the course of several weeks, your lymphatic system will filter out the deactivated fat cells to improve body contours. 

What Results Can I Expect with CoolSculpting®?

Results vary depending on your body’s response to CoolSculpting®. Despite slightly varying results, reviews on RealSelf have an 80% rating of patients saying CoolSculpting® is worth it

While it may reduce the appearance of fat in stubborn areas, CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution but targets areas of fat that do not respond to dieting and exercising. A healthy lifestyle is needed for ideal results. 

CoolSculpting® is also known to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the legs, buttocks, and arms.

How Long Until I See Results With CoolSculpting®?

You may see results as early as three weeks after your first treatment. Since CoolSculpting® uses your body’s natural systems to expel the fat, it takes time to see results. Final results may take up to 3 months after your last treatment to be visible. 

How Long Do CoolSculpting® Results Last?

We are born with a limited number of fat cells. As we gain weight, the fat cells expand, which causes the bulging we often associate with stubborn fat. Since CoolSculpting® destroys and removes problematic fat cells, you should see permanent results

Despite permanently removing fat cells, diet and regular exercise maintain your ideal figure. If you significantly increase in weight, you may reduce the effects of your CoolSculpting® treatment.
