CoolSculpting® Noninvasive Body Contouring


At Serenity MedSpa, we’re always looking for new and innovative technologies that offer exceptional value and result to our clients. We are thrilled to offer CoolSculpting, a unique technology that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn and unwanted fat that’s especially resistant to diet and exercise. It’s completely noninvasive with no downtime. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and is a safe and effective noninvasive alternative to surgical liposuction. The results from CoolSculpting are long-lasting, noticeable and proven.

CS-SystemHow does CoolSculpting work?

Scientifically, we know that fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting technology safely and precisely delivers controlled cooling to freeze the unwanted fat cells beneath the skin. The frozen fat cells die and the body naturally eliminates them.

How many areas can I treat in one day with CoolSculpting?

You can safely treat as many areas as you desire in one day. Each “cycle” (one applicator for one area) takes approximately one hour. To make the treatment more convenient and efficient for our clients, we perform DualSculpting by using two CoolSculpting machines at once to halve the treatment time. During your consultation, our physician will create a customized treatment plan with you.

How soon will I see the results after my CoolSculpting procedure?

Typically, you can start to see noticeable results as soon as three weeks. However, optimal results from CoolSculpting will take closer to two months or longer. At Serenity MedSpa, we are committed to achieving the best results possible, all as part of our commitment to be the leader in the aesthetic field.


Can I treat the same area more than once with CoolSculpting?

Each cycle will eliminate about 20% of the fat in the treatment areas. After two months, you can eliminate more fat in the same areas if you desire additional contouring.

What is the CoolSculpting process and what does it feel like?

Our physician will place the CoolSculpting applicator on the treatment area. For a few minutes, you’ll feel pressure and intense cold. This sensation will dissipate quickly. The applicator will then be left on for one hour. You can treat as many areas as you desire in one day. To reduce the treatment time by half, we use two CoolSculpting machines to treat two different areas at once.

During the treatment, you can read, listen to music, watch videos, work on your laptop or even take a nap. We’ll do our best to make your treatment experience as pleasant as possible.

Are the results from CoolSculpting permanent?

Yes. When the treated fat cells are frozen they die. Then your body naturally and safely eliminates the dead fat cells.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

Yes. Harvard University scientists developed the CoolSculpting procedure as an easy, fast and effective way to reduce fat without surgery. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for non-surgical fat reduction. To date, over one million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed.

Is there any downtime after the CoolSculpting procedure?

No. Since the CoolSculpting treatment is completely noninvasive, you can resume your normal activities immediately.

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure, you may experience some 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. Our physicians will work with you closely to ensure you’re a good candidate for this procedure and will get great results safely.
