A Revolution in
The non-invasive CoolSculpting® technology uses a patented cooling process called cryolipolysis to target and eliminate fat cells, without surgery and little to no downtime. This non-surgical procedure is highly effective in targeting fat cells without damage to other cells and tissue.
The CoolSculpting procedure is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure.*
It’s an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away with no surgery and little to no downtime. With more than 6 millionCoolSculpting treatments worldwide, people everywhere are getting a better view of themselves, thanks to the one-of-a-kind CoolSculpting procedure.
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.
The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
During Your First Visit
You’ll meet with a CoolSculpting clinician during a one-on-one consultation. This person could be a doctor or another medical professional who has specialized training in the CoolSculpting procedure.
Your CoolSculpting clinician will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body. Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles—and then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat.
Your Treatment Day:
Little to No Downtime.
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap.

Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the CoolSculpting procedure.
While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their first treatment, the most dramatic results are usually seen between 1 and 3 months following treatment.
