What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, fat reduction procedure that freezes, crystallizes, and eliminates stubborn fat. Unlike other fat reduction techniques that can damage your body, this naturally kills the fat cells beneath the skin. This FDA-cleared, cooling technology, leaves your healthy skin and muscle tissue unscathed.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
- Anesthesia is not necessary
- No needles
- No downtime
- There is no hassle following the procedure
People who struggle with bulges of fat that are not responsive to traditional diet and exercise techniques are good candidates for CoolSculpting®. This treatment is not a solution for those who are obese. In addition, CoolSculpting® is not a replacement for surgical fat removal procedures such as liposuction.
Dr. Beaty Talks CoolSculpting®
First, schedule a complimentary consultation with the team at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery. Our Advanced Certified CoolSculptor will assess the areas of concern through a 360 degree evaluation. At this time, both of you will work to design a treatment plan that fits your needs.
When you arrive for the CoolSculpting® procedure, our Advanced Certified CoolSculptor will apply a gel pad to protect the skin around the treatment area from irritation and discomfort. The CoolSculpting® applicator will then be placed on the gel pad and deliver targeted cooling to the area.
How does CoolSculpting® work?
Fat cells are more susceptible to cold than muscle or skin. CoolSculpting® targets fat cells and cools them, which in exchange will cause these cells to shrink and die. CoolSculpting® leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected. Over time, your body will naturally metabolize the dead fat cells. The fat layer will condense, leaving you with a slimmer figure.
Is CoolSculpting Painful?
Patients typically experience a pulling sensation in the area of treatment. After several minutes, a feeling of numbness will arise. Following the procedure, temporary discomfort and irritation may occur. Fortunately, this will only last for a few days.
After the treatment, you may begin to see noticeable results in as little as 3-4 weeks. During the 2-3 month period, your body will continue to naturally dispose of the targeted fat cells. You’ll see your trouble spots becoming slimmer and sculpted.
Although one visit is sufficient to produce excellent results, additional appointments can optimize the results and allow for even further fat reduction.

Is CoolSculpting® permanent?
Fat cells that have been destroyed by a CoolSculpting® treatment will be disposed of. However, maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise habits is crucial. Results will remain stable as long as patients maintain a consistently healthy weight.
