Freeze that Fat Away with Coolsculpting

The hottest new fat-buster is really cool! Developed by Harvard researchers, CoolSculpting slims down fat deposits by cooling the fatty tissue. Requiring no needles or numbing cream, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that freezes fat cells without damaging the outer skin, and it only takes about an hour!

The popularity of CoolSculpting is surging, especially among people who aren’t interested in surgery, have busy schedules, and who are good CoolSculpting candidates. The most common area treated by CoolSculpting is the muffin top, which is a common complaint of both women and men. Because CoolSculpting has no down time, it’s easy to arrange around work schedules, family and other obligations.

On the day of treatment, patients can bring their laptops and get some work done at the same time. The process is simple, and patients typically notice results after just one treatment, with further improvement within the first few months.

While CoolSculpting won’t replace liposuction for some parts of the body, it’s a great step forward in the expanding repertoire of noninvasive technologies, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it to our patients. It’s a great complement to that New Year’s resolution to exercise, eat right, and chill!
