What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment option to help patients eliminate stubborn, unwanted fat from certain areas of the body. Using cryotechnology, the fat cells are frozen and naturally processed through your body to be eliminated. CoolSculpting is the number one FDA-approved non-invasive fat treatment in the United States, offering patients many benefits and visibly flattering results. It is especially helpful for patients who have been struggling to reduce stubborn pockets of fat from certain areas of the body through methods like diet or exercise.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The CoolSculpting procedure uses something called cryolipolysis to freeze the fat cells in the treated area. Unlike other fat removal procedures, it is minimally-invasive and does not require the use of surgery or liposuction.
Patients are treated by section, with the targeted area being placed between two cooling plates. The unwanted fat cells will be frozen away, absorbed by the body, and eliminated naturally through the body. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an excellent cosmetic solution for patients seeking fat reduction. Some of the main benefits include minimally invasive treatments, permanent removal of the fat cells in the area, and fast treatment time.
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-approved, offering patients a safe and reliable treatment to help eliminate those last stubborn pounds from areas of the body such as the stomach, flanks, thighs, and more. It is not intended to remove extensive amounts of weight from the body but can help deliver a leaner, more toned body.
The CoolSculpting procedure is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure that, depending on the type of procedure or areas you are treating, can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete.
Fat cells are eliminated using cryolipolysis while the surrounding tissue is left undamaged. No anesthesia is required and patients generally feel little to no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Most patients can expect a noticeable improvement in fat after just one procedure.

Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not a substitute for weight loss surgery, and cannot eliminate large amounts of fat. However, it is an excellent choice for patients who are already near their goal weight but want to eliminate stubborn fat from areas of the body. It can help to improve your physique and enhance your overall figure, delivering a more balanced and slimmer contour. Patients should also be in good general health and have realistic expectations for their procedure. During your consultation at our facility in Akron, you will be able to discuss your expectations and what you are looking for from CoolSculpting treatments.
How Soon Will I See Results with CoolSculpting?
After the first CoolSculpting treatment, patients will begin to see results, but multiple sessions are generally recommended to achieve the desired results. Many factors can influence how many treatments you need, such as the size of the treatment area and the amount of fat you are hoping to eliminate. Most patients can expect two to three treatment sessions, with improvements developing over the two to three weeks after the treatment. Your final results will settle in a few months after your last CoolSculpting session at our facility in Akron.
Is CoolSculpting Permanent?
CoolSculpting is a unique treatment and it can help deliver long-lasting improvements to stubborn areas of fat on the body. Once the fat cells in the area are treated, they will not reform in the area. However, changes, as you age, can affect your body shape further, which may alter your figure over time. Dr. Pedersen recommends that patients follow a healthy lifestyle with a clean diet and regular exercise to maintain their results. This will also help to reduce the possibility of fat developing in other areas, as well.
