HB: What is Coolsculpting?

CoolSculpting® fat-freezing technology is a nonsurgical, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots such as the abdomen, flanks, or under the chin in as little as one session. People can get up to a 20-25% reduction in fat layer thickness after a single session with results may be seen as early as 1 to 3 months after treatment.

HB: How does cool sculpting work?

Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature, they will freeze and die. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1-3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area.

HB: Who is the best candidate for this procedure?

For individuals with healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to reduce excess fat. CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss treatment. It is FDA-cleared to treat 9 different areas of the body: visible bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms.
