What Is CoolSculpting?

Coolsculpting by Zeltiq works by freezing fat cells; a process scientifically called Cryolipolysis®*. This sounds impossible we know. Patients have reported losing up to 2 inches in a single treatment*

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. They discovered that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more susceptible to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue*. These Harvard studies confirmed that you can freeze fat away*. When exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, fat cells die and the amount of fat you have is reduced permanently*. Once these fat cells die, they cannot come back*. This is why CoolSculpting is like a non-surgical lipo (liposuction)*.

Depending upon the amount of fat reduction you desire, and amount of fat excess you are starting with, the treatment may be repeated more than one time to reach your CoolSculpting results goal*. After you freeze the fat, it takes a few months for the full result to become apparent*.

How fat cells work.

The number of fat cells is set during childhood and adolescence. That number varies little in adulthood. The number of fat cells is specific to you and varies from person to person

So what happens when your weight fluctuates?

When you start to gain weight, those fat cells expand, which in turn causes your waistline (and hips, and double chin, and thighs) to expand. When you eat healthy and exercise regularly, those fat cells shrink to give a slimmer and trimmer shape. If you stop those healthy habits, they will expand again, adding unwanted bulges.

Dr. Mark Blake describes the evolution of CoolSculpting at the Illume Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa.

Reduce Fat with CoolSculpting Technology

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling, freezing fat cells, which reduces stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise*.

The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look good from every angle. CoolSculpting can reduce fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, chin and inner and outer thighs.

Reduce the bulge.

CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to treat 9 different areas of the body: visible bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms.

Every CoolSculpting® session is different—it all depends on your natural body shape and the specific areas of fat you are targeting.

Your treatment is completely customized and our staff will work with you to create a plan that’s quite literally made for you.

What Areas Can Be treated with CoolSculpting?

The most common CoolSculpting treatment areas include:

  • Upper or lower abdomen
  • Anterior or posterior flanks
  • Bra back (back fat)
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Inner or outer thighs
  • Chin
  • Hips
  • Banana fold (below bottom)


Although men and women tend to show fat in different areas, the CoolSculpting procedure works for both men and women.

The CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas.

Unlike surgical procedures, the CoolSculpting procedure has little to no downtime.

The CoolSculpting procedure was recently awarded “The Best Fat-Reducing Treatment” by NewBeauty!
