CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, nonsurgical fat reduction technique. This fat-freezing technology has been proven to reduce pockets of fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, flanks, and under the chin. CoolSculpting can produce a 20–25% reduction in thickness of the fat layer from a single session.



CoolSculpting (technical name: cryolipolysis) has the ability to freeze fat cells without affecting the surrounding skin or tissue, and also destroys the ability to store fat in the treated area. The damaged fat cells are then eliminated from your body within 1-3 months, resulting in 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area. The bottom line: CoolSculpting freezes and kills fat cells, giving you a much slimmer shape.
