The CoolSculpting procedure uses innovative technology to freeze fat in trouble spots. Research has revealed fat cells freeze at a specific temperature.

CoolSculpting uses the exact temperature that safely freezes fat cells which allows your body to naturally eliminate the dead cells.

The elimination process happens between one to three months and produces results of 20% to 25% fat reduction in the location where treatment is received. 

Where can CoolSculpting be used on the body? 

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared treatment that is approved to be used in areas of the body such as under the chin, jawline, flank, abdomen, thighs, upper arm, back and buttocks.
