Cool Sculpting

Who wouldn’t want a slimmer and more sculpted body? Medical science has made some major breakthroughs in the areas of losing body fat and getting into shape, and these advances are gaining more and more popularity by the day.

CoolSculpting is a marvel of modern science that has given patients amazing results with little to no discomfort. That is why so many men and women around the world are showing a growing interest in the CoolSculpting procedure.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is different from other fat-reduction procedures in that it is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. It is a form of cryolipolysis, or fat loss through use of cold temperatures. The treatment involves applying extreme cold to the target areas in order to freeze the fat cells.

Fat cells, when subjected to extreme cold, get severely damaged and die. This is a process known as apoptosis, or cell death. The cells then get absorbed by the body, vanishing without a trace.

Fat cells get damaged at a higher temperature than skin or muscle cells. Because of this, during CoolSculpting, muscles, skin, and organs are unaffected and completely safe. This is why CoolSculpting is known as a selective procedure (and also why it very safe for patients).

After CoolSculpting treatments, your fat cells vanish gradually over a period of months, leaving you with a trim, slim, and toned appearance.

The CoolSculpting Process

CoolSculpting treatments only take an hour per treated region of the body. At the start, warming gel pads are placed on the treatment areas to protect the superficial skin from the cooling energy.

Suction is used to hold the treatment regions in place. Cooling energy is then applied through the use of a specialized handpiece, lowering the temperature of the targeted fat cells.

Who Should Consider CoolSculpting?

Naturally, CoolSculpting is meant for people who want to look great and trim away excess fat. In particular, this procedure is perfect for the following individuals:

  • If you have a busy schedule and do not have time for a fully invasive procedure, CoolSculpting can be an excellent option. CoolSculpting is a short procedure and does not require any downtime. You can even go on doing your work with your laptop during the procedure.
  • CoolSculpting is able to reduce the volume of numerous regions, including the thighs, upper arms, abdomen, and love handles.
  • You can choose CoolSculpting if you cannot go through an invasive procedure for various reasons. Sometimes, your health may not allow you to go through an operation. If not, you may simply be afraid of going through an invasive procedure. In these cases, CoolSculpting is an ideal solution.
  • CoolSculpting is particularly useful when you have no time or patience to shed the fat with rigorous workout regimens or diets. CoolSculpting can easily give you amazing results quickly and without all the extra work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate?

The CoolSculpting procedure is designed for people who want to eliminate fat bulges in specific areas. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass). People who choose CoolSculpting often want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas.

Where does the fat go?

The frozen fat cells become crystallized, then die. The dead fat cells then are naturally processed and eliminated by your body. Some patients wonder if the results are permanent. CoolSculpting results are long term because those fat cells, and that fat bulge, are gone for good.

When will I see results?

You may start seeing changes in your body as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment. The most dramatic results are usually visible after 2 months. Several months after your treatment, your body will still continue to flush out fat cells.

Will I need supplements?

After your CoolSculpting treatment, no special supplements are required. You won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits because it’s not a diet and exercise program. Many people do feel more motivated to take good care of themselves after a CoolSculpting treatment. They look better, they feel better, and they want to keep their reshaped body healthy.


What is Emtone?

The EMTONE is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal and mechanical energy to treat all major contributing factors to cellulite.

How does Emtone work?

Cellulite is a multi-factorial problem. Women are told fibrous bands run from skin to muscle through the fat. When the bands pull downward on the skin, the fat pushes upward. But there is more to the story…


  • Enlarged fat chambers in the hypodermis applies pressure outwards between interlobular spaces.
  • Collagen fibers remain rigid pulling inwards against outward pressure. (dimple)
  • Loss of skin elasticity decreases resistance to internal outward pressure.
  • Metabolic waste accumulation in the interstitial spaces.


  • Who is the right CANDIDATE for EMTONE?
    EMTONE is ideal for anyone looking for the non-invasive cellulite reduction and overall improvement of the skin appearance.
  • How long is the TREATMENT? How many sessions do I need?
    During the first visit, your provider helps design your individual treatment plan. Most patients undergo 4 treatments, scheduled once or twice a week. A treatment typically takes about 20 minutes depending on the treated area.
  • What does the PROCEDURE feel like? Is it painful?
    The most common perception of the therapy is being compared to a hot stone massage with intense mechanical vibrations. The treatment is performed in a relaxing lying-down position.
  • How fast will I see RESULTS? Is there any downtime?
    Patients have reported improvements after a single treatment session. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few months. With no downtime you may resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.

Because It’s Not Only about Fat

The EMSCULPT is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their body.  In addition, the EMSCULPT creates the world’s first non-invasive buttock toning procedure.

How does Emsculpt work?

EMSCULPT approaches body contouring in a completely different way – it not only reduces excess fat, but it also focuses on an essential piece of the body sculpting equation that no other surgical or nonsurgical method addresses – increasing muscle mass. EMSCULPT is powered by high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM), which works to induce supramaximal (or forced) muscle contractions. During your EMSCULPT session, your abdominal muscles are stimulated, contracting approximately 20,000 times – the equivalent of 20,000 crunches – working those ab muscles in a way you never could naturally.

Unlike other nonsurgical body contouring devices that solely focus on reducing fat, EMSCULPT is designed to treat both men and women, no matter their body type. Whether you have stubborn excess fat bulges that refuse to budge, or if you are already fit and trim and are looking for the best way to put a few finishing touches on your physique, EMSCULPT can provide the results you desire.

Am I a good Emsculpt candidate?

Anyone can benefit from the EMSCULPT procedure. This treatment is ideal for patients who do not want to undergo surgery or receive injectable treatment in these areas. EMSCULPT is great for male and female patients alike.

What areas can I treat?

EMSCULPT can be treated on the buttocks and abdomen area for both men and women.

How Many Treatments Are Needed to See Results?

It is recommended that patients undergo four 30-minute treatment sessions spaced 2-3 days apart. Patients will receive treatments twice per week.

“This explains why older lasers cause a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, similar to a snapping of a rubber band,” says Dr. Irina Minina. “With our new LightPod technology, patients of all skin types can receive safe, gentle and effective treatments without the use of messy cooling gels or anesthetics; solely using a beam of light to touch the skin.” The Neo’s pulse effectively targets tissue structures without causing any damage to the surrounding skin – resulting in the highest levels of treatment comfort, safety and efficacy.
