When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still getting rid of the fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Are the results permanent?

During Coolsculpting®, the treated fat cells are permanently eliminated from the body. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.

What happens during this treatment?

During your consultation, we will determine if Coolsculpting® is appropriate for you. We will then start the treatment by choosing the most suitable fat freezing device and placing it on the area of your body which will result in the most fat loss. Once activated, it will draw the excess fat up into its cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to make sure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. Then, you just sit back and relax as we freeze the fat away. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.

Can I return to normal activities after this treatment?

Coolsculpting® is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some people may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. In fact, many of our clients return to work after their treatment session is over.

Is Coolsculpting® safe?

Coolsculpting® is safe, effective and FDA-cleared. Most importantly, it works. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months. Most people only need one treatment session to get back into those skinny jeans. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

How Coolsculpting® Works?

Created by Harvard Scientists, this unique technology called cryolipolysis freezes fat cells in the targeted area. This freezing effectively destroys the fat cells readying them to be flushed out of the body. During the process of the fat cells being expelled from the body, you will see a gradual reduction in the treated areas. People who have seen the best results are those who help stimulate their body to push out the fat cells through hydration and sweating.
