Everything You Need to Know About CoolSculpting

Dr. Lee Colony  In: CoolSculpting


Regular exercise and healthy eating are important parts of a healthy lifestyle. However, not everyone may be able to obtain the results they desire. Stubborn areas of fat in the abdomen, sides, thighs, and even chin are often tricky areas that cause unhappiness in patients. If you are looking for a way to say goodbye to those trouble areas without surgery or downtime, read on to learn about CoolSculpting.


CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that harnesses Cryolipolysis® technology to eliminate fat cells. The idea for this treatment came years ago, when scientists at Harvard noticed that some children who regularly ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. These scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD, realized that the popsicles were actually freezing away small amounts of fat cells. Cryoliplysis®, or the idea that cold can damage fat cells without harming surrounding tissue, was born.

How it Works

CoolSculpting uses special applicators which direct cooling technology to the treatment areas. This technology targets unwanted fat cells, freezing and killing them. Over time, your body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells. When these cells are killed, they cannot regenerate, meaning results are long-lasting.


Many patients choose CoolSculpting treatments because they are quick and easy. There is no surgery, anesthesia, or needles involved. There is also no downtime needed, so patients can return to their everyday routine after their treatment.
