Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Did you know that the size of our fat cells may fluctuate but the number of fat cells in our body stops increasing in numbers in adolescence? CoolSculpting® reduces the number of cells in the areas treated and this number reduction is permanent. Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.
Does the CoolSculpting® system have safety features?
As a leading non-invasive fat-reduction treatment worldwide, CoolSculpting® is FDA approved and has a well-established safety and efficacy profile. CoolSculpting® systems are controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically.
Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting® procedure?
The CoolSculpting® fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g. gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® cryo procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

Can the CoolSculpting® procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?
CoolSculpting® can treat visible fat bulges in the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen, and flank (love handle), along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm.
Create a customised treatment plan that's tailored to your body and your individual goals during your complimentary consultation.
I don’t like my double chin. Can the CoolSculpting® procedure help me lose it?
Yes, CoolSculpting® can treat visible fat bulges under the chin. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as effective as using the CoolSculpting® procedure on other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With CoolSculpting® fat freezing treatment for a double chin, patients may see results after just 2 visits.
