The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat.
The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting. You can reduce fat on multiple areas of your body with the CoolSculpting procedure, and additional sessions may further enhance your results.

Although men and women tend to show fat in different areas, the CoolSculpting procedure works for both. CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging, and mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat so you may feel intense cold but this sensation typically subsides within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many people read, check email or even take a nap during their sessions. Afterwards, patients are usually able to return to normal activities.
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas. The CoolSculpting procedure has a 95% patient satisfaction rate. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their session, most dramatic results are usually seen 1-3 months after treatment.
Results and patient experience may vary.
