Do you have stubborn fat that you can’t seem to get rid of regardless of your diet and exercise routine? Have you been considering a procedure like liposuction or Zerona? If so you deserve to try CoolSculpting.  CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat reduction device that uses controlled temperature to eliminate fat cells.


The procedure takes only about 60 minutes and can be done right in our spa.  Once you and the physician determine your target areas, the CoolSculpting device is applied.  Once the procedure starts you are free to rest, work on your laptop or even read a book. The science behind the procedure SIMPLY stated is this: The fat cells are frozen with the CoolScultping device (surrounding tissues are safe), the treated fat cells crystalize (from the freezing process) and then die. Over a period of time (weeks) your body will naturally eliminate these dead cells, leaving you with a more sculpted physique.


With the CoolSculpting procedure, a specially designed cooling applicator is applied to the desired area of fat reduction to extract energy (cooling) from the underlying fat tissue without damage to other tissues. The applicator cup uses vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels. During the procedure, the applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling conditions that have been proven to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they trigger a process of natural removal that gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer.

Renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, discovered this concept while observing some children that got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.

The CoolSculpting procedure is:

  • FDA-cleared
  • Non-surgical
  • Safe and effective








Q: How many sessions will I need and how much does it cost?

A: This really depends on how many areas need to be treated, your budget and the customized plan that we create for you. Consultations are always free to determine your individual needs.

Q: What is the difference between fat reduction vs. weight loss?

A: When you lose weight, you never lose your fat cells. The fat cells do get smaller but they are still there and if you gain weight, those same cells plump right up and become larger again.  However, when you have a procedure like CoolSculpting done, we are actually reducing the number of fat cells in your body. Once the fat cells are frozen and die, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates it.

Q: Who is this procedure best suited for?

A: The ideal candidate is someone that has done the hard work of losing the weight but can’t seem to get rid of those bulging problem areas, such as the back, the bra area and stomach.   CoolSculpting is not meant to be a treatment for obesity, however it provides amazing results for those previously obese because of the large number of fat cells that body is holding on to.

b4ANDaFTER_11Q: How long will it last?

A: Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone forever. So the results are permanent as long as you do not gain more weight.  Typically, after this procedure, our clients are very conscientious of how they are taking care of themselves physically and are able to maintain their results.

Q: What can I expect after my session?

A: Because this procedure is NON-SURGICAL and requires no anesthesia, our clients typically return to their work and other normal activities immediately.  Changes are usually seen as early as three weeks after the treatment with the most dramatic results being seen between one and three months.  As time passes, you may not see a change in your weight, but as your body eliminates the cell waste you will look more toned and contoured. At your appointment, your physician will schedule a follow up visit with you so you can both evaluate your results, take pictures and discuss whether you need an additional session or not.

Q: What are the side effects?b4ANDaFTER_22

A: This is a great questions! During the procedure you may have sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, tingling, stinging or possible cramping.  However, after the area becomes numb there is little discomfort. Many of our clients find that they can nap during the procedure.  After the procedure, there may be some lingering numbing, redness, firmness, mild bruising, tingling and stinging. There are certain individuals that should not have this procedure done and include those that suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or if they are pregnant or nursing.

We love seeing the dramatic results with our clients! But more importantly, we love that this procedure eliminates the fat cells permanently! They are literally gone FOREVER.
