How CoolSculpting® Freezes Away Your Fat

When struggling to obtain your ideal body, genetics and diet-resistant fat often work against you. Fortunately, there’s CoolSculpting, a non-surgical and scientifically-proven treatment that can reduce stubborn fat by up to 25% in a single session.

The truth about body fat

What makes CoolSculpting an effective treatment is that it’s not about losing weight - it’s about eliminating unwanted body fat once and for all.


The majority of your fat, or adipose tissue, is located beneath your skin in the subcutaneous layer of your body. Your first fat cells are formed during the third trimester of fetal development and then again during puberty.


For the most part, your body doesn’t generate more fat cells after puberty. Existing cells get bigger as your body stores more fat. Unfortunately, some fat can become diet or exercise resistant due to either genetics or receptors in the cells themselves. This can lead to stubborn fat pockets on your body that you can’t lose through traditional methods.


With revolutionary aesthetic treatments like CoolSculpting, these fat cells are permanently destroyed.

A revolutionary fat-busting treatment

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring procedure known as cryolipolysis that gently destroys fat cells by freezing them. This fat-busting technique is safe, precise, and effective -- gently damaging fat cells permanently in a completely controlled and customizable procedure that doesn’t damage your surrounding tissue or skin.


When CoolSculpting treatment freezes your fat cells by exposing them to cold temperatures, they die. At that time, your body naturally absorbs them and eliminates them from your system. This technique reduces your fat cells in the area up to 20-25% in a single treatment.


CoolSculpting can dissolve unwanted fat from a variety of areas, including:



And, because of CoolSculpting’s innovative design, Dr. Bushore and his highly-trained aesthetic team can treat multiple areas during a single session.

CoolSculpting in action

Dr. Bushore tailors each patient’s CoolSculpting session to target specific trouble spots and achieve their desired goals. During your appointment, Dr. Bushore will select the appropriate sized CoolSculpting applicator and prepare the equipment for use. A protective gel pad is always applied to the treatment area.


After the CoolSculpting applicator is applied, gentle suction is applied to vacuum fat into its hollow chamber for treatment. As the treatment area is cooled, you may experience a numbing sensation. However, any discomfort is minimal.


Each CoolSculpting session takes approximately 35 minutes. When your treatment is complete, Dr. Bushore will remove the applicator and massage the area. This part of the process helps breaks up your frozen fat cells which makes them easier for your body to process. Depending on your desired outcomes, Dr. Bushore may recommend additional treatments.


There’s no downtime following CoolSculpting treatments. You can resume your active lifestyle immediately. You’ll begin to notice results from your treatment approximately three weeks after your session with maximum benefit within six weeks to two months. This is the average time it takes for the fat cells to break down and be flushed from your body by your lymphatic system.
