What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting treatment is non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat from those stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, pregnancy pouches, love handles, muffin tops and back fat. CoolSculpting is FDA approved to reduce fat by up to 20% to 40% in these stubborn areas with NO surgery and NO downtime.
How It Works
During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the skin surface to deliver precisely controlled cooling method called ‘Cryolipolysis’ to target, cool and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body.
As they are exposed to cooling, the fat cells begin a process of natural fat cell removal. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body's normal metabolic processes.
