If you’re trying to lose those last few pounds of stubborn fat that will not respond to diet or exercise, CoolSculpting® is perfect for you. This treatment is a scientifically proven way to eliminate unwanted fat without surgery or the extensive downtime involved in other body sculpting procedures.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® uses a procedure called cryolipolysis, or freezing of fat. Fat cells are very sensitive to cold temperatures and by targeting unwanted fat cells and freezing them, we enable your body to safely and easily remove unwanted fat without surgery, cutting, needles, anesthesia or extensive downtime. In addition, because CoolSculpting® eliminates the fat cells along with the fat results can be permanent.
What Areas Does it Treat?
We can perform CoolSculpting® to effectively remove fat from all your trouble areas, including stomach, muffin top, love handles, back, arms, legs, and even stubborn submental fat underneath the chin.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
Our expert practitioners simply apply the CoolSculpting® applicator to the area where you wish to reduce stubborn fat. The applicator will then pull the stubborn bulge inside exposing it to the cooling panels. Because fat freezes at higher temperatures than other bodily tissues we can safely freeze the fat without affecting other areas. Once the fat is frozen it causes the fat cells to undergo a normal bodily process called apoptosis. As a result, the fat and fat cells will be removed from the body in the same fashion that dietary fat is eliminated. The process of fat removal is so well-tolerated that it will not even be noticed by the patient. At the end of the treatment, a member of Dr. Brezel’s staff will massage the area to encourage the body to break down the crystalized fat cells and to rewarm the area.
What Are the Advantages of the CoolSculpting® Procedure for Fat Removal?
This treatment is the only non-surgical, FDA-cleared way to reduce fat using patented cold technology. It is a safe way to selectively target fat for optimal body sculpting without surgery, needles, downtime or anesthesia. Since there is no downtime, you can resume normal activities almost immediately after your treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate?
This treatment is not for people wishing to lose large amounts of weight. The best candidates are those looking to get rid of the stubborn areas that are not responding to diet and exercise.
Does It Hurt? What Is the Recovery Time?
During the procedure, you may experience a mild pulling or tugging as the fat is pulled inside the applicator. Once this has been accomplished and the cooling has begun this sensation subsides as the cooling numbs the areas. Following the procedure, patients will notice some temporary redness and swelling in the treated area which subsides in 5-10 minutes. Starting 2-3 days after the treatment patients may experience some numbness in the treated area which is likened to what happens when one crosses their feet for too long. This “pins and needles” is temporary and usually resolves in 7-10 days and will not prevent you from going about your normal routine.
CoolSculpting®: Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to treat visible fat bulges in nine areas of the body. It has been found to reduce 20-25% of fat cells in the target area. Some patients see results as early as 3 weeks after treatment as the fat is flushed from your system, with full results usually apparent in 2-3 months.
