freeze away unwanted fat cells


Leesburg | Loudoun | Ashburn | Virginia

CoolSculpting is the number one non-surgical alternative to liposuction for removing unwanted fat.  You can treat most areas of the body including your neck, arms, abdomen, flanks, and thighs.  CoolSculpting has an advantage over liposuction in that the treatment is virtually painless and has no down-time.  Yes, you can return to your life the same day.  There is no down-time.

Coolsculpting is simply the number one rated non-surgical treatment option for removing unwanted fat.

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of stubborn localized fat. Coolsculpting uses controlled cooling to target and break down fat without surgery.  Fat cells are eliminated…. permanently.

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Fat cells certainly take up a lot of space and have a lot of volume, but they don’t weigh very much. The opposite is true of muscle. Lean muscle weighs more than fat but doesn’t take up a ton of space. So although you won’t see the scale change if you do CoolSculpting in isolation, you will see undeniable results. CoolSculpting can sculpt, contour, reshape, resize, and debulk parts of your body that don’t care how many hours you put in at the gym or how well you eat. And if you are just starting a weight loss journey, CoolSculpting can help you achieve your goals faster, stay on track and see changes that you can achieve with diet and exercise alone.

Absolutely not. We have treated clients in their mid 80s and also those in their 20s. Good, bad, right or wrong, how we feel in our own skin impacts how we operate in the world. So whether you are young or more mature, CoolSculpting can help boost your self-confidence and enhance your self perception. Regardless of age, CoolSculpting is effective. 

A little known fact: by the time you are 9-13 years old the number of fat cells you have is set. That’s right, you have the same number of fat cells you did decades ago. Well, then why do you now have fat when then you didn’t? The fat cells expanded. When we gain weight our fat cells expand; we don’t make new ones. And when we lose weight our fat cells shrink; we don’t get rid of them. So when we use CoolSculpting to freeze fat cells, they die and then over 2-4 months flush out of the body. We actually get rid of fat cells and once that happens you will not remake them! However, you must do your part. You still have fat cells that can expand and give you the illusion that you “un did” your CoolSculpting results. This is why it is important to continue with whatever you are doing (or if you are just starting to eat healthy and exercise, continue ramping that up) so you can appreciate the results for a lifetime.

After many years of research, you can feel confident that the CoolSculpting procedure is based on sound science. There are over 100 peer-reviewed publications by leading researchers and clinicians! http://coolsculptinghcp.com/fat-freezing-science/scientific-results/

This is a popular question and sometimes the answer isn’t clear cut. Both procedures will get rid of fat, both procedures can dramatically improve your self-perception and confidence and both procedures are highly effective. The biggest difference we have found is that a huge percentage of people are not willing to go under the knife or experience the potential side-effects that can come with liposuction. Downtime, potential bad outcomes, pain, and scarring are just a few of the things our CoolSculpting clients often say they are not willing  to endure. Each individual must ask themselves what they are looking to achieve and what they are willing to go through in order to get an outcome they are happy with now and long term.

CoolSculpting is the perfect non-invasive fat-reduction solution for anyone, man or woman, who are struggling with diet and exercise resistant fat.

How does CoolSculpting work

CoolSculpting is a simple, non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of stubborn localized fat. A vacuum and chilled applicator are placed over the fat that needs to be reduced. The vacuum sucks fat into the applicator where it is subjected to freezing temperatures. The cold causes exclusively the fat cells – which are more sensitive to the cold than the surrounding cells – to die while leaving the surrounding tissue in place.
