What is CoolSculpting®?

Want to eliminate targeted areas of fat without surgery? Nicole Altamirano, our Coolsculpting Specialist, helps patients reduce stubborn, diet and exercise-resistant fat with revolutionary CoolSculpting® treatments. CoolSculpting® treatments require no surgery and no downtime, delivering long-lasting fat reduction results.

FDA-cleared CoolSculpting® works through a process known as cryolipolysis, which freezes fat cells without damaging any surrounding skin or muscle tissue. As the fat cells in problem areas freeze and solidify, the body’s lymphatic system naturally begins to process this fat out of the body. Although some fat cells are removed from the body, not all fat cells are removed, therefore a strong diet and exercise regimen is key to maintaining results.
