CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting is the non-invasive freezing of fat cells using a suction applicator to induce lipolysis (fat cell death) without damage to other tissues or structures.  The fat freezing technique has been FDA approved for fat reduction since September 2010 and provides a means of fat reduction without surgery, with little to no discomfort, and with no downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis principles were discovered by renowned dermatologists Dieter Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD, of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.  Cryolipolysis is a biologically selective mechanism as fat cells are hypersensitive to cold.  Cooling thereby triggers natural fat cell death via apoptosis.

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq

There are many imitators of cryolipolysis but Zeltiq is the ONLY company worldwide that holds the exclusive patent and commercial licensing rights for cryolipolysis technology.  The CoolSculpting procedure was developed by ZELTIQ, a global medical device company in Pleasanton, California established in 2005.  The CoolSculpting procedure by ZELTIQ is THE first and only non-invasive fat reduction procedure worldwide based on Cryolipolysis technology.  The CoolSculpting procedure is cleared in the United States, Canada, the European Union, and other international markets for non-invasive fat layer reduction.

What will the results be?

Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.

What happens during the treatment?

To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.

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 flushing 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 eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

CoolSculpting is now becoming one of the most popular treatments for reducing love handles, saddlebags and abdominal bulges without surgery and without downtime. CoolSculpting prices are typically more affordable than more invasive procedures such as liposuction.

Many of our patients want to know the cost of CoolSculpting and we understand this; however, it’s always best to meet with the Doctors first to see if you are a candidate. They will sit down and discuss your options after an examination and what your overall weight loss expectations are and develop a weight loss program that can range from simple weight loss to surgical options to help you sculpt your body.The following CoolSculpting price estimations are averages only and will give you a gauge as to some of the initial costs.

Most Doctors practices have a similar pricing guideline as set by Zeltiq, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting. The cost depends on the applicator used and how many treatments are needed.  The smaller applicator is $600 per area and the larger (Coolmax or Cool Advantage Plus) (typically used on the abdomen) is $1200. Many Doctors will give discounts if a patient gets multiple areas treated.

Most treatments can result is a 20-25% reduction of fat in that specific area.  Some patients are happy after one treatment, others return for evaluation and pursue another treatment eight to twelve weeks later for more areas.  It only takes one hour per session, typically, and there is no downtime.
