CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat-freezing procedure that uses controlled cooling which eliminates stubborn fat that doesn’t seem to want to go away with diet and exercise. The results are proven time and time again and are long lasting.
How is CoolSculpting performed?
Did you know that fat cells are more susceptible to cold than skin, nerve or muscle tissues?
Over 40 years ago, scientists noticed that young children who repeatedly ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. It was discovered that the cold temperature in the popsicles caused the fat pockets in their cheeks to disappear. It took over 40 years to harness this knowledge into a safe and effective procedure. Now, CoolSculpting is gaining popularity across North America.
CoolScuplting involves cooling the skin to an extremely cold temperature in certain areas of your body. The cold causes fat cells to die, and then the natural processes in your body take over and removes the fat.

Many patients do experience redness in the treated areas for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed.
