What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat removal treatment that uses controlled cooling to selectively target and destroy stubborn bulges. It’s an excellent nonsurgical alternative for localized fat pockets that have been resistant to diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting is the first and only non-surgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles and back fat. Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on cryolipolysis (cryo = cold, lipo = fat, lysis = breakdown, disintegrate) the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat.

Cryplipolysis promotes fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis (death of cells that occurs as part of a normal lifecycle), without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves or surrounding tissues.
