It’s called stubborn fat for a reason. Because no matter how much effort you put into eating healthy and exercising, it’s virtually impossible to lose that unwanted fat. You’re forced to just live with it or think about surgery. Sounds drastic – that is exactly why CoolSculpting® was developed. Invented by the same researchers who developed laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal and fractional laser, this unique, patented, clinically proven procedure involves freezing and breaking down fat cells without damage to your skin. There’s no needles, no surgery and no lasers.
Typically, most see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after two visits. You can lose even more with additional appointments, if you and Dr Magnusson feel it will provide additional benefit. What does that mean? Simply put, your clothes fit better. You look better. The fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body over the following few months, leaving you feeling more like yourself again. It’s non-surgical and there’s usually little to no downtime whatsoever — unless you count reading a book or checking email during your appointment as downtime. As long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is CoolSculpting?
The patented CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for weight loss or obesity but rather a targeted way to remove fat from those stubborn bulges around your stomach, hips, thighs and back. There are no operations, no needles, no lasers and no surgery. During your treatment you can relax and read a book, check email or watch a movie. Afterwards you can go straight back to your busy day. Walk-in, walk out.
What is the science behind CoolSculpting?
Research conducted by the same researchers who discovered laser hair removal and fractional laser showed that fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissues. Consequently, fat cells that are selectively exposed to precisely controlled cooling can be targeted without harming the skin. This selective biologic response is how CoolSculpting targets only unwanted fat cells and preserves other tissues, such as skin, muscle, and nerves. The discovery of the vulnerability of fat cells to cooling and proof of this scientific concept led to the development of the non-invasive CoolSculpting technology.
Is the treatment invasive and is there any downtime?
With this non-invasive procedure, there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anaesthesia or pain medications, and no recovery time. The CoolSculpting procedure is comfortable for most patients; they can read, work on their laptop computer, listen to music or just relax during the procedure. Most patients typically resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure.
