CoolSculpting® is the safe, effective and non-invasive way to reduce fat in common trouble areas that tend to be diet- and exercise-resistant. With CoolSculpting® you can eliminate stubborn fat without surgery or downtime and feel great from every angle. Researchers at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, developed the patented technology behind CoolSculpting that cools fat and destroys it, resulting in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated areas.
It is a medical fact that fat is uniquely susceptible to extreme cold. CoolSculpting turns the tables on fat by harnessing the power of cold to naturally trigger fat reduction. Targeted fat cells crystallize, break down and then are eliminated through the body’s natural processes.
CoolSculpting takes about one hour per treated area and most patients are able to rest, check email or read while undergoing treatment. There is minimal discomfort with the treatment, no downtime and most patients can resume regular activity immediately after treatment.
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after two months.
CoolSculpting is a proprietary, patented technology and is the only method of non-invasive fat reduction that uses a cooling method backed by Harvard research and clinically proven to be effective. CoolSculpting is not a laser-assisted or ultrasound fat reduction technology.
CoolSculpting eliminates fat in target areas without special diet supplements or exercise programs, and results are long lasting and sustainable with a healthy lifestyle.
CoolSculpting is a premium procedure, only offered through top doctors across the country. Go to CoolSculpting.com to locate a treatment center and join the conversation on Facebook with patients and others considering treatment.
What is CoolAdvantage?
CoolAdvantage is the newest CoolSculpting applicator. It delivers CoolSculpting’s cooling technology at a lower temperature, reducing treatment time to 35 minutes, instead of the standard 60 minutes with CoolSculpting’s other applicators.
Is CoolAdvantage as effective if the treatment time is shorter?
Dr. Kilmer performed the clinical study that compared the CoolAdvantage enhancements to the commercially available CoolCore™ applicator. CoolAdvantage demonstrated equivalent fat layer reduction measured by ultrasound and blinded photographic review. The new applicator cup shape led to a 45 percent increase in comfort during the treatment. Eighty-five percent of the study subjects preferred the CoolAdvantage treatment due to its decreased treatment time and increased comfort.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that gently and effectively reduces fat in targeted areas of your body, resulting in natural-looking fat reduction. CoolSculpting utilizes advanced cooling technology that targets and eliminates fat cells. Unlike traditional invasive surgical procedures, CoolSculpting uses no needles or incisions. There is no need for anesthesia or pain medications and there is little-to-no downtime; most patients are able to return to their normal activities the same day.
CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis technology, has shown remarkable efficacy in early research and clinical trials and has been used in clinical practice with great success.
During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of your body. When fat cells are exposed to cooling during the CoolSculpting procedure, it triggers a process of natural removal, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
When will I start seeing results?
Patients may see results as early as 3 weeks, with the most dramatic results generally observed 1-3 months following treatment.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to reclaim your figure by reducing fat in common trouble spots like the love handles (“muffin top”) that seem impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise alone.
Through its patented cooling technology developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, the non-invasive CoolSculpting Procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated areas. This means that your jeans fit better. Your favorite dress flatters your figure the way it used to. And you might just have the confidence to revisit the skinny section of your closet.
Unlike surgery and other non-invasive methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting is the only procedure that uses cooling technology – not laser-assisted or ultrasound methods. It can be done in a couple of hours, you can return to normal activity immediately afterwards and it does not require any special diet or exercise programs.
