WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment proven to effectively eliminate fat cells in various areas of the body. Through its fat-freezing technology, CoolSculpting is able to reduce fat cells in areas that diet and exercise alone sometimes cannot address. Unlike lasers and other devices that use heat to shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting targets cells with cryolipolysis freezing technology that induces apoptosis, or natural cell death. This prevents fat cells from growing back over time and thus removes fat from the body. This procedure has transformed the lives of thousands of patients, and is the best fat-eliminating technologies on the market.
WHAT DOES COOLSCULPTING TREAT?
CoolSculpting addresses fat on multiple areas of the body, including:
- Upper and lower abdomen (belly)
- Hips and flanks (love handles)
- Chin and neck (double chin)
- Upper and lower back
- Inner thighs
- Bra fat
THE SEILER SKIN DIFFERENCE
The success of CoolSculpting depends on two things — the quality of the device used and the experience of the practitioner. We carry the most advanced devices on the market when it comes to CoolSculpting and are always staying up to date on new developments. The different applicators we have allow us to effectively target different areas of the body and create a treatment plan specific to each patient’s needs. Additionally, the devices we have allow us to address multiple areas of the body at once, both reducing total treatment time.
To benefit fully from CoolSculpting, you need a trusted provider who understands both the science behind the treatment and its application. Dr. Seiler and our highly trained team conduct a thorough consultation with each patient to determine if CoolSculpting is the right solution for their concerns. From there, we develop a treatment plan accounting for the areas you want to target as well as how many treatment cycles may be needed to see optimal results. Our goal is to set realistic expectations for each patient to ensure they are happy with the final result every single time.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is intended to treat areas of the body where diet and exercise alone sometimes cannot eliminate fat, and should not be seen as a “weight loss solution.” Patients who are within 10 to 20 pounds of their goal weight are ideal candidates for treatment. CoolSculpting can also help optimize the results of surgical fat-reduction procedures, such as liposuction, and ensure a more even fat removal in areas of concern. We conduct an in-depth consultation with each patient to determine if they are an ideal candidate prior to creating a treatment plan.
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT LIKE?
CoolSculpting is a safe treatment with very minimal discomfort. After applying the applicators to the target areas, our team activates the device and induces the fat-freezing technology. Depending on the number of areas being treated, CoolSculpting can take several hours for complete treatment.
Unlike surgical options for eliminating fat, CoolSculpting has little to no downtime, and patients typically return to their normal schedules after treatment. You may experience slight discomfort or a tingling sensation in the treated areas, as well as redness in the skin, but this passes typically in the weeks after treatment.
Patients can expect to start seeing results as early as four to eight weeks after treatment, with optimal results happening around three to six months following treatment. Depending on the areas of the body being treated as well as the amount of fat, results may vary from one patient to another. Patients also sometimes experience noticeable skin tightening in the treated areas.
HOW MUCH DOES COOLSCULPTING COST?
The price for CoolSculpting is truly specific to each patient depending on the areas being treated and the number of cycles necessary to deliver the best results. Through our extensive, free CoolSculpting consultation process, we are able to determine what is needed to give you the look you want and develop the appropriate treatment plan.
