So, what’s the REAL skinny on CoolSculpting?

Belly pooch, muffin top, food baby, roll, love handles, saddle bags . . . the world has a lot of cutesy and derogatory ways to describe body fat. And despite eating healthy, exercising regularly, and general healthy living we all have so-called “trouble areas” on our bodies. In fact, some people are just genetically predisposed to carrying and storing pockets of fat in different areas, and those people are often as healthy (or sometimes healthier) than their thinner counterparts. But how do you reduce these “trouble areas” permanently and what exactly is CoolSculpting?

Some CoolSculpting history: CoolSculpting was developed by two Harvard dermatologists and has quickly jumped to the top industry standard for body contouring. Why the excitement over CoolSculpting? CoolSculpting offers a 20% reduction in fat in the treatment area after a one-hour treatment and it’s completely non-invasive. There is no anesthesia, no incision, and no downtime, and you can even stagger your appointments to meet your budget. We consider CoolSculpting to be the first truly effective, non-invasive fat reduction technology.


CoolSculpting is extremely popular with our patients. Patients like the ability to schedule their treatments without worrying about long recovery or downtime and not having to undergo surgery. They like being able to schedule treatments that fit into their lifestyle instead of putting their lifestyle on hold to have surgery . . . and they LOVE the results! It sounds like we just stumbled onto the fountain of skinny, but CoolSculpting patients need realistic expectations about the results and costs required to get those results


It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise—or a treatment for obesity. Results can only be maintained with proper attention to diet and exercise.
