Recovery from non-invasive CoolSculpting® is fast. You can go about your normal activities right away. You can expect slight tingling, stinging, crampiness, or itching in the treatment area that are sometimes reported on treatment day. Some swelling or bruising is possible as well, and depends greatly on the treatment area.
CoolSculpting® is a patented, FDA approved cooling technology that can eliminate fat cells permanently. Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical body contouring procedure, there is little to no downtime after treatment. Developed by distinguished scientists at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, CoolSculpting® is ideal for targeted areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise, like love handles—providing noticeable and lasting results.

Areas Treated with CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is ideal for areas on the body where deposits of fat can be pinched with the fingers because the CoolSculpting® tool clasps the area before freezing the fat cells under the skin. Areas that are great for CoolSculpting® include:
- Love Handles
- Inner Thigh
- Turkey Neck/Double Chin
- Back/Bra Area
- Upper Arms
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® uses a process called Cryolipolysis®, to target fat cells based on their natural physical properties. Fat cells are cooled to temperatures that trigger their natural death. Your body then performs its own natural processes of metabolism to carry away the dead cells and the fat they contain over a period of about three weeks. Because Cryolipolysis® targets the fat cells only, the surrounding cells and other tissues, skin and nerves are not affected.
