CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq™ is a non-invasive procedure that gently and effectively removes fat from targeted areas of the body that have not responded to traditional diet and exercise. Patients can benefit from noticeable yet natural-looking results in their problem areas, providing an overall smoother body contour. CoolSculpting is most effective in removing fat from the abdomen, love handles (flanks) and back.

The results of the CoolSculpting procedure are achieved using the advanced Cryolipolysis™ technology, which freezes the targeted tissue to break down the fat cells for easy removal, without any harm to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells have been proven to be more vulnerable to cold than the surrounding tissue. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the procedure.

The system has been approved by the FDA as an effective skin cooling device for many dermatologic treatments. It has been safely used across the world for many years.

Candidates for CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is considered safe and effective for most patients seeking fat removal from targeted areas such as the abdomen, love handles and back. Since CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution, patients should be relatively fit, but have one or more areas of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. It is important for patients to have realistic expectations about the results of this procedure.

CoolSculpting is not designed to remove large volumes of fat like conventional liposuction procedures. CoolSculpting is considered a less invasive alternative for patients with modest-sized fat bulges. Here at Lucia, we will help determine whether or not you are a candidate for CoolSculpting after a physical examination and after analyzing your medical history.


CoolSculpting® takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After you have a CoolSculpting® treatment, you can typically get right back to your busy day. Each treatment lasts one hour, the same you might spend at the gym, so can even be fit into a lunch break.

After one visit, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly due to the natural process of your body taking that long to dispose of fat cells. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments if you and your doctor deem it necessary.

So after a few months, your clothes fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable. How great is that?

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 your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting procedures worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and are eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment; however the most dramatic results typically are seen after two months. Your body will still flush out fat cells and continue to do so up to four to six months after treatment.
