If you can squeeze it, you can freeze it!

CoolSculpting® is a leading non-surgical fat-reduction treatment by freezing and killing fat cells, a process they call cryolipolysis. It is the one and only treatment FDA and Health Canada-approved to freeze away stubborn fat in 9 different areas of the body including:

  • under chin,
  • under jawline,
  • flanks (“love handles”),
  • abdomen
  • thighs (inner, outer, distal),
  • bra fat,
  • upper arms,
  • back fat,
  • and, underneath the buttocks (the “banana rolls”).

It’s an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat and eventually eliminating it. A single session reduces fat up to 25%. It involves no surgery and minimal expected downtime. With more than 7 million CoolSculpting® treatment cycles performed worldwide, people everywhere are getting a different view of themselves.


The CoolSculpting® Science & Technology

  • Delivers precisely controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin, whilst leaving the skin itself unaffected
  • Systems are controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically

➋ CoolSculpting® causes no damage to surrounding tissues because lipids in fat crystallize at a warmer temperature than water in other cell types

➌ Following treatment, fat cells begin to die, and the body's immune system naturally processes the fat - eliminating dead cells

➍ Final Result: CoolSculpting® has demonstrated fat layer reductions across multiple treatment areas of up to 25% at 6 months

Where Does The Fat Go?

Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting® procedure are gradually destroyed and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body – only fat reduction in treated targeted area.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does The Procedure Cost?

The price for the procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed and your ultimate goals.

During your consultation with Dr. Pinkhasik, a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your budget and goals will be created. This will help to maximize the results you see in your chosen treatment areas, while staying within your budget.

How Long Does One Session Take?

Each CoolSculpting treatment is different, so it depends on which areas of the body and how many of them you plan on doing. Depending on the area, treatment can be done in as little as 30 minutes. If you opt to do multiple treatments in a session, expect to spend more time.

Is It Safe?

CoolSculpting has been cleared by the FDA and Health Canada to safely and effectively treat 9 different areas of the body. Some common side effects include temporary numbness, discomfort, and swelling. Rare side effects may also occur. You should not be treated with CoolSculpting if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. Please see CoolSculpting Official’s full  Important Safety Information.

What are the side effects?

During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations may subside as the area becomes numb.

Following the procedure, typical side effects include redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, skin sensitivity and numbness. Numbness can persist for up to several weeks. There may be a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks.

Though rare, some additional side effects such as paradoxical hyperplasia, late onset pain, freeze burn, vasovagal symptoms, subcutaneous induration, hyperpigmentation and hernia may also occur.

What is the recovery time?

The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities almost immediately. Often, patients return to work directly after their  treatment. This will vary between people and may be dependent on treatment area.

When Will I See Results?

Everyone’s unique and reacts differently to the treatment. You should start seeing changes as soon as 1-3 months post-treatment. Final results may take 6 months or more.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

It depends on the person and the area being treated. In general, up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area is achieved after a single treatment. Please schedule a consultation with our doctor to discuss an individualized treatment plan to reach your desired goal.
