Cosmetic - Contouring


The non-surgical and natural way to eliminate stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment for men and women that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no surgery. And most importantly, no downtime.

Say goodbye to muffin tops, love handles, double chin and outer thigh fat.

CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.

Its unique, conformable design allows the applicator to fit your individual shape.

Did you know that 7.2 million people are 
very bothered by their “double chin”? Now there is a simple and non-invasive solution 
for the treatment of the submental area! CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ® Introduces the CoolMini Applicator; 
designed to treat small fat bulges, such as in the submental or double chin area. No needles. No surgery. No downtime.

In a recent CoolMini applicator clinical study where patients received submental treatments:

  • 83% of patients were satisfied with their results
  • 7 out of 10 patients found the procedure comfortable
  • 8 out of 10 patients would recommend the procedure

The CoolAdvantage applicator delivers CoolSculpting® cooling technology at a lower temperature, reducing treatment time nearly in half, and features an adaptable 3-in-1 configuration and enhanced cup design.

By changing the shape of the applicator cup to increase direct tissue contact and lowering the temperature, the CoolAdvantage applicator delivers safe and efficacious results in just 35 minutes, shortening CoolSculpting treatment time by nearly 50 percent.  In a clinical study, the new applicator cup shape led to a 45 percent increase in comfort during the treatment — already considered very tolerable by most patients. Eighty-five percent of the study subjects preferred the CoolAdvantage treatment due to its decreased treatment time and increased comfort.

How Coolsculpting Works:


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. 

Post-procedure, you can expect your body to begin naturally eliminating the fat cells that were frozen during the treatment.  You should not experience any pain or discomfort, and within three months you’ll see a visible reduction in fat volume – revealing a smooth and contoured appearance.

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.
