If you’ve been dieting and exercising like crazy with no results, you aren’t alone. As early as our late twenties, our muscles start to lose tone, and it gets harder and harder to address stubborn pockets of fat.

To find out if this treatment is right for you, contact us today and schedule a consultation!
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that basically freezes away unwanted fat cells. Using controlled cooling, the cells are frozen. Once frozen, they die and are processed and eliminated by your body. It’s a popular non-invasive alternative to liposuction.
How Does It Work?
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues in your body. This means that the CoolSculpting® process is able to safely target and freeze fat cells underneath the skin without harming the rest of the body. After a consultation, we can put together a specific treatment plan to help you deal with those problem areas and reshape your body.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no set downtime following a CoolSculpting® procedure. Immediately after the process, you may feel some numbness and soreness, the targeted area may be red, and there may be some tingling and stinging. These side effects are usually short-term and start to go away quickly.
What are the Results Like?
The results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. Depending on the areas that you’d like to target and the amount of stubborn fat that you have, we may recommend more than one treatment to get the best results. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
In some cases, it can take months for the results to develop fully, but there could be noticeable changes to your shape after just weeks as your body processes and removes the dead cells. The results are designed to be permanent, as there is no way that the fat cells could re-enter your body. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle so as not to expand the remaining fat cells.
Gone are the days when patients had to undergo invasive surgical procedures in order to achieve their body contouring goals. Our team at Advanced Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV proudly offers CoolSculpting® as a non-surgical way for qualifying men and women to target stubborn fat. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and get started. We look forward to hearing from you!
Frequently Asked Questions
- Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
- How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
- How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
- Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
- What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
- Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
- Are there any side effects?
During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
- Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
- When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
- Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
- What happens if I gain weight down the road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas
