The Problem

Excess body fats that results in unattractive love handles or muffin tops is a cosmetic problem that many struggle with. However, in most cases we also find ourselves frustrated at how these problem areas still doesn’t seem to budge despite your strict diet and regular exercise.

Excess fats can limit wardrobe choices, activity and even your level of comfort. That is why some people will go to great lengths by getting surgery just to get rid of it. But the good thing with modern technology is that you don’t need to get surgical treatment such as liposuction because there is already a less invasive treatment available today.


CoolSculpting technology uses a patented cooling process called Cryolipolysis to target and eliminate fat cells. This non-invasive procedure is highly effective in selectively targeting fat cells without damage to other cells and tissue. Other treatments that have preceeded coolsculpting include the use of laser, sonic waves or ultrasound.

But the problem with most of these treatments is that it can burn, harm, shatter or extract non-fat cells. These procedures may also take more time to heal, which is something that most patients don’t need.

Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis- the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat. Coolsculpting combines efficacy, convenience and safety. It is an FDA-approved non-invasive body contouring procedure available to patients with no scarring, less bruising and swelling and no downtime.

The Results

It takes approximately 2-4 months to see results. More treatment sessions will help you get rid of the critical inches that you have been having trouble dealing with for the past few months or years.

But, it is still possible for you to gain weight and have that same area increase in size due to the enlargement of fat tissues.


The good thing about Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is that it doesn’t have any downtime. This is perfect for those who have very little time to spare because it can be done and over with during your lunch period and you can immediately go back to your usual activities afterwards.


The cost for the CoolSculpting body contouring treatment depends on the areas being treated.  The price for CoolSculpting in the abdominal area is $3200 and $1600 for the arms and thighs.

Coolsculpting costs can vary based on treatment area and size and will be discussed during your private consultation. Fat Freezing treatment pricing is offered per area due to hand piece sizes available.
