What Is CoolSculpting®

  • CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved non-surgical device that can help you target stubborn fat in the thighs, abdomen and love handles.
  • It uses controlled cooling to safely target fat cells underneath the skin in the areas that won’t seem to go away, no matter how much you exercise and diet. Individual results may vary from person to person.
  • Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
