How It Works


CoolSculpting® uses the advanced Cryolipolysis™ technology to target the fat cells beneath the skin with absolute precision. Fat is very sensitive to cold temperature but the surrounding nerves and cells aren’t. That’s why Coolsculpting® targets only fat cells and leaves everything around them untouched. A rounded applicator is placed on the targeted problematic area of the body and it provides suction of the skin similar to a vacuum. The targeted fat cells are frozen to the temperature that activates their crystallization and eventual shrinking. Overtime these fat cells disappear and get eliminated from the body through natural metabolic processes. The results – when the treated fat cells are completely disposed of, the body gets a more sculpted and toned shape.


What makes CoolSculpting® treatment ideal is that it is really versatile when it comes to body parts it can treat. CoolSculpting® technology precisely targets fat cells beneath the skin, and cools them to temperatures that trigger their natural death. Gradually these targeted fat cells disappear from the body in a natural way.

Since the CoolSculpting® device has applicators in different shapes and sizes, it can each every area of the body that has persistent fat bulges.

Following CoolSculpting® target areas are:

  • Stomach and Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Love Handles and Flanks
  • Back Bulge and Bra Area
  • Under Buttocks (Banana Roll)
  • Double Chin
  • Male Chest (Pseudogynecomastia)

Double chin – CoolSculpting® device has a specially designed applicator just for this area of the body. It works to bring back the fine contour to the chin area. It freezes the fat cells that cause the so-called double chin, and drooping skin on the neck. The applicator precisely targets these two areas and effectively brings results after one or two treatments.

Love handles (flanks) – this problematic area in patients’ sides of the waist can really be stubborn when trying to get rid of in old-fashioned ways. CoolSculpting® is a perfect solution for patients who do ab exercises and follow a healthy diet but still can’t eliminate love handles.

Arms – another problematic area of the body. Upper arms start to change as a person gets older, and once toned biceps can turn to flabby, loose skin with fat pockets. CoolSculpting® treats the surplus of fat in this body part and since the removal of fat is gradual the skin has enough time to bounce back. It won’t stay hanging loose and when the process is finished, upper arms get a nice toned shape again.

Abdomen – this target area is perhaps the most popular when thinking about undergoing CoolSculpting® treatment. A lot of patients wish to eliminate belly fat and get a flat abdomen. The CoolSculpting® procedure provides excellent results in freezing excess fat in this part of the body and makes patients feel more confident about their new, perfectly toned abdomen.

Thighs – CoolSculpting® can treat these problematic body parts and eliminate saddlebags on the outer thighs or create a thigh gap on the inner thighs. It all depends on patients’ goals. CoolSculpting® applicators are again versatile here and can get to even hard-reachable bulges of fat.

Underneath the buttocks (banana rolls) –  CoolSculpting® can effectively treat the bulges of fat on this problematic body area. This treatment makes this area smoother and contoured, making it overall slimmer and more shaped.

Back fat –  Coolsculpting® effectively treats fat on different areas of the back. It can treat the lower back that extends from the love handles,  the middle area of back fat on the sides, and “bra bulge” fat that appears under the bra line.

Male Chest (Pseudogynecomastia) – Sometimes men have problems with their chest area and can’t eliminate the accumulated fat sagging from their chest no matter how much they try.

Male Chest CoolSculpting® is used to kill fat cells beneath the skin It gets men’s chest to look more sculpted. It is FDA approved, safe and can help men’s chest to get trimmed and contoured.


The best part is that the results are long-lasting – the eliminated fat cells will never come back. The areas that were treated are smoother, thinner and natural-looking.

The CoolSculpting® procedure is safe and FDA cleared. It is proven to be an effective procedure for non-surgical fat reduction.

Since the CoolSculpting® treatments target precisely the fat cells no surrounding tissue is harmed.

The treatment is non-invasive and only mildly uncomfortable, and it is performed by the top licensed medical professionals at Lucia Clinic. It provides the results that every patient at Lucia Clinic absolutely loves.

Clothes fit better, patients are radiant with confidence and they feel and look better.



Your appearance and your health greatly depend on regular exercise and healthy well-balanced diet.  CoolSculpting® isn’t meant to replace diet and exercise – it should help people to reach their goals. When you exercise and have healthy nutritious habits, you can reduce the accumulation of fat cells, but you can’t get rid for them permanently.  CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells and helps to eliminate them forever, which encourages you to continue with your healthy lifestyle.



    CoolSculpting® is a safe and non-invasive procedure and it brings awesome results for patients who want to remove fat from problematic areas on their bodies. However, it is not a weight-loss treatment, so good candidates for CoolSculpting® need to be fairly fit and healthy. They might only have one or two problematic areas off at that they can’t get rid of no matter how they try with exercising and diets.

    Patients should keep in mind that CoolSculpting® is not suitable for removing large areas of fat as liposuction procedures are.

    SoCoolSculpting® is ideal for patients who wish to avoid surgical treatments and prefer non-invasive procedures. Also, if they have only smaller fat bulges they wish to remove, they can undergo this treatment.

    After deciding to undergo this treatment at Lucia Clinic, patients are fully physically examined by CoolSculpting® therapists and also asked about their medical history. When the consultations are over, therapists determine whether the patients are good candidates for CoolSculpting® treatment, or they could perhaps try some other more suitable treatment. Medical and nursing professionals at Lucia Clinic have mastered the technology to administer a procedure that’s safe and comfortable and provides the results that patients absolutely love. At Lucia Clinic, medical professionals have a lot of experience freezing away unwanted fat, for good.

    Since everyone has a different body, every patient has his/her own problematic areas. CoolSculpting® therapists work together with patients to make a customized procedure plan that will work just for them. CoolSculpting therapists at Lucia Clinic have a goal to help each and every patient on their journey to getting a perfect body contour.


    The CoolSculpting® procedure lasts quite short - approximately 60 minutes. It can easily be fitted into a daily routine. What’s even better, after the treatment, the patients can continue with their busy day, because there is no downtime.

    During the treatment, there is a mild feeling of discomfort but it’s fairly tolerable. Sensations of cooling and suction are experienced at first but they go numb after approximately 10minutes. Since the procedure is non - invasive and mildly painful, patients can read a book, watch a movie or work on their laptops until it’s all over.

    When the treatment finishes, the treated area might be red after the applicator is taken off. The redness should stop after a few hours. Some patients experience the sensation of itching, tenderness when touching, tingling and numbness in the area that was treated, but all the sensitivity should stop after a week or two.

    After just one treatment, there is a noticeable less fat on the treated area. To see the full results a few months need to pass. This is simply because that's the time the body needs to naturally dispose of fat cells. Natural processes need time to finish, but waiting will be so worthwhile when the full effects are realized.
