CoolSculpting Freezes & Eliminates Stubborn Fat

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

Proceedure Safety

CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected.

Clinician Safety

Our staff have undergone in-depth training and certification to ensure your safety. CoolSculpting treatments are performed only in a medical office under the supervision of a licensed professional to guarantee the highest standards of care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.  Give us a call at Wellness on Third to schedule an appointment and see if CoolSculpting is a good option for you.
Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
In the US, the CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.
When will I see the results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals. Wellness on Third will create a customized treatment plan, in person that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
How long is each treatment? How many treatments will i need?
Dr. Ken will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit and the applicators utilized. The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat an area being treated in as short at 35 minutes per cycle.  Some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. Wellness on Third has duel sculpting – two systems which allows our patients to treat multiple areas in one visit.  Some practices even have multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators, so it’s possible for a patient to have multiple areas treated at once.
Can the CoolSculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere in my body?
In the U.S., the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the chin area, inner an outer thighs, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, the region under the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm.
I don't like my double chin. Can the CoolSculpting procedure help reduce it?
Yes! The CoolSculpting procedure can treat visible fat bulges under the chin and contour the neck. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as easy and tolerable as using the CoolSculpting procedure in other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With CoolSculpting treatment for a double chin, patients see results after just 1 to 2 visits. And with no surgery, no needles, and with little to no downtime.

Patient Information – What to Expect

What to expect during CoolSculpting:

  • CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that may take one to several hours depending upon your treatment plan.
  • No general/topical anesthesia or pain medication is required.
  • As the procedure is initiated, vacuum pressure draws tissue into an applicator cup between cooling panels. The vacuum pressure may cause sensations of deep pulling, tugging and/or pinching in the area being treated.
  • You may also experience stinging, tingling, aching or cramping. These sensations generally subside as the area becomes numb.  During the procedure, expect to feel minimal sensation after the first three to four minutes.

What to expect immediately after CoolSculpting:

  • Immediately after the procedure, your treated area may look or feel stiff and transient blanching (temporary whitening of the skin) may occur.
  • Your body naturally warms and sensation returns to the treatment area. Rarely, you may experience a sense of nausea or dizziness.  These are all normal potential reactions that typically resolve within minutes.
  • The treated area may be red for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed. This is an expected but temporary effect after coolsculpting.
  • Bruising, swelling and tenderness can occur in the treated area. This typically resolves within a week or two.
  • Nausea and tingling, stinging and cramping in the treatment area have been described on treatment day.
  • You may feel a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area. This is normal and typically resolves within a few hours but may last for several weeks after your procedure.
  • There typically is minimal recovery time after coolsculpting. Most patients return to their daily routine immediately after the procedure.

What to expect the first few days and weeks after CoolSculpting:

  • It is common for the treated area to feel bloated and look swollen in the first few days and weeks after coolsculpting as the body’s healing response is initiated. This is a natural response and decreases as the disrupted fat cells are destroyed and eliminated.
  • You may experience a temporary dulling of sensation in the area that can last for several weeks.
  • Should any described sensation last beyond three weeks, please contact the office for further assessment and instruction. In addition to the dulling of sensation described you might experience itching, tingling, tenderness to touch and pain in the treated area.  Muscle spasms and cramping have also been described.
  • Following the procedure, a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer will take place. You may start to see changes as early as three weeks after coolsculpting and you will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months.  Your body will continue to naturally process the injured fat cells from your body for approximately four months after your procedure.

Next steps:

  • Weight gain will prevent you from appreciating your full results. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine after your procedure can help prevent this.
  • CoolSculpting helps sculpt and improve body contours. Continued loss of visceral fat will enhance the CoolScuplting effect.
  • Remember – coolsculpting is not a weight loss intervention and decrease in weight as a direct result of the procedure is limited.
  • Schedule a follow-up medical assessment in six weeks to review your clinical results and discuss the option of additional treatments to achieve desired fat reduction.

Please call us at 270.564.0067 if your symptoms appear to worsen or last longer than two weeks. 

Please remember to wear the same black undergarments you wore during the initial photographic session to maximize visual monitoring of the coolsculpting effect and allow pre and post treatment comparison.
