Are you looking to lessen troublesome areas of stubborn fat and bring back proportion to your figure? CoolSculpting®, a revolutionary and completely non-surgical procedure, may be the solution for you.
Why Consider CoolSculpting?
Despite your best efforts at a healthy lifestyle, you continue to notice pockets of stubborn fat that refuse to go away. A common problem for many of our Mechanicsburg patients, CoolSculpting’s controlled cooling is unique in that it is able to focus on and reduce fat in specific trouble areas, including the back, abdomen, flanks, and inner and outer thighs.
Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting uses a process known as cryolipolysis to selectively target, freeze, and eliminate fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin and tissues. Once crystallized, the fat cells are processed and naturally eliminated from your body. Non-surgical and minimally invasive, CoolSculpting involves no anesthesia, no incisions, and no scars.

How is CoolSculpting Performed?
CoolSculpting is a relatively quick treatment and takes approximately one hour. While CoolSculpting is generally considered a comfortable treatment, you may feel a slight pressure and a cold sensation at the beginning of your session. As this subsides—usually within the first five to ten minutes—and your treatment continues, you are able to relax. Many of our patients take this time to check their email, read a book, or even take a nap.
What is the CoolSculpting Recovery Process Like?
Unlike with other, more invasive procedures, with CoolSculpting, there is minimal downtime and you should be able to return to normal activities right away. Although side effects are rare, you may experience some discomfort, redness, slight bruising, and numbness in the treated area. This typically subsides within a few days of your CoolSculpting session.

When Will You Notice CoolSculpting Results?
Most patients start to see results within three weeks of their CoolSculpting treatment. More prominent results are seen as your body continues to eliminate the treated fat cells—usually around six to eight weeks. CoolSculpting reduces the treated areas by up to 25 percent. Many can achieve even better results with additional CoolSculpting sessions.
