The unique CoolSculpting® fat-freezing technology is a nonsurgical, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots such as the abdomen, flanks, or under the chin in as little as one session.
Two Harvard scientists, Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein discovered that fat cells were more sensitive to cold than other body tissue. They were able to pinpoint a specific temperature in which fat cells begin to die, but the other healthy surrounding cells were left untouched. The medical concept they created is known as “cryolipolysis”. Additionally, they discovered that as the fat cells die, they are slowly released through the body’s own natural waste systems. The treated area begins to shrink as the fat dissipates. This is the secret behind how CoolSculpting® works.
CoolSculpting® was cleared by the FDA in 2010, and since then, over 8 million treatments have been performed in over 80 countries around the world. The results have been amazing, and they’ve discovered that by using certain applicators to freeze areas of the body, you can actually sculpt a new look. In addition, the fat cells that gradually die do not return, thus giving the treated patient the opportunity to finally reduce stubborn fat. Our staff has been trained at CoolSculpting® University in Pleasanton, CA, and we understand how CoolSculpting® works, how to perform the treatment, and its effects better than most because it’s all we do. We are also one of the few centers in the area to have multiple CoolSculpting® devices, which allows us to treat two areas at the same time, cutting your treatment time in half.

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.
It’s not weight loss. It’s fat loss.
CoolSculpting® helps sculpt your body in certain areas. You’ll find your clothes fit better, look better, and feel better on you.
So what happens when your weight fluctuates?
When you start to gain weight, those fat cells expand, which in turn causes your waistline, hips, 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.
