CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for the reduction of fat. It uses selective cryolipolysis to contour troubled areas of the body. Selective cryolipolysis was first used by Harvard scientists R. Rox Anderson and Dieter Manstein.

Low self-esteem is a problem that haunts many people, and it is often caused by how people perceive their appearance. Many individuals desire a sculpted and aesthetically pleasing body, but in some cases, no amount of diet and exercise can eliminate those last few inches of stubborn fat. This is where CoolSculpting comes in. CoolSculpting can remove excess fat without surgical intervention. This means no scars, no incisions, no scalpels, no stitches, and no frustrating or painful downtime.


CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to freeze stubborn fat cells under the skin while preserving the health of surrounding cells. The frozen fat cells are destroyed and then naturally eliminated by the body over time, which results in a reduction of the volume of the treatment area.

When you lose weight with diet and exercise, you typically only reduce the number on the scale, and not the number of fat cells in your body. The fat cells only get smaller. By destroying the fat cells with CoolSculpting, permanent fat loss occurs. It can be used on various parts of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, knees, hips, back, and buttocks.


The CoolSculpting procedure is not recommended for women who are pregnant, are planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. These life changes can negatively affect the results of the treatment. It is also not a solution to obesity. Instead, it is an effective spot-contouring treatment for those last few inches of pinchable fat. It is ideal for patients who are near or are at their ideal weight.


During your consultation with Lynae, our CoolSculpting specialist in Columbus will evaluate your problem area to determine if it is enough to fill the cooling cup that is used to freeze the fat cells. She will also explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions you may have, and provide before-and-after photos for your reference.


I am more confident now

The Dr. and staff were friendly, explained everything well, and followed up with me afterwards. The price was reasonable, and the work I had done was excellent. I am more confident now. The staff made me feel comfortable the day of surgery.


At the start of the treatment, a warming gel pad is placed on the treatment area and is followed by the CoolSculpting applicator. A vacuum is then used to hold the fatty tissue in place. This may cause the feeling of mild pinching and tugging.

The applicator delivers precise cooling to the targeted fat. Over time—typically a treatment can range from 35 to 45 minutes—the intensity of the cooling will cause the treatment area to feel numb. The skin itself will remain unharmed, though a little bit of bruising and swelling may develop afterward.

The destroyed fat cells are metabolized by the body and are then eliminated gradually. The initial results of the treatment may be seen within around four weeks, however, full results are not seen until after three months.
