CoolSculpting® is the “coolest,” non-surgical way to contour those stubborn fat deposits. By freezing fat cells, CoolSculpting starts a natural process in the body that eliminates unwanted fat.
At Total Aesthetics, CoolSculpting is part of our innovative “Sculpt and Tone” program.
Some people work hard to get the body they want.
Sometimes, no matter how diligently we adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine, some stubborn areas of fat remain. Many people consider procedures such as liposuction to eliminate those problem areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, but surgery often involves incisions, anesthesia, and a bit of a recovery period.
Now, there’s a well-established solution to fat reduction that’s completely non-invasive with no downtime, surgery, or need for anesthesia. CoolSculpting is the FDA-approved treatment that is literally the “coolest” way to remove troublesome bulges from the abdomen, flanks, muffin top, love handles, back, thighs, arms, and chin. Using cryolipolysis technology, CoolSculpting can freeze the fat cells and naturally eliminate them from the body without damaging nearby vital tissues—all in less time than one visit to the gym.
CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedure in the U.S. and it’s for both men and women. Although CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction procedure, it’s best if patients are at or near their ideal body weight. CoolSculpting should not be considered a weight-loss solution but rather a technique to remove those troublesome bulges caused by fatty deposits. Patients should be in good general health and willing to maintain their results with a healthy lifestyle.
THOSE WITH UNWANTED FAT
CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedure in the U.S. and a great solution for problem areas of stubborn, excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Patients with troublesome fat in the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, inner knees, under-chin, and arms can benefit from CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction procedure best suited for patients at or near their ideal body weight. It should not be considered a weight-loss solution but rather a technique to remove troublesome bulges caused by fatty deposits. Patients should be willing to maintain their results with a healthy lifestyle.
ELIMINATION OF STUBBORN FAT
Unlike procedures that use lasers, sound waves, or surgery, CoolSculpting uses patented technology to gently cool areas of stubborn fat. This sets in motion a process called apoptosis that safely removes fat from the body. The overall process is known as cryolipolysis. Once the fat cells are treated, they are permanently eliminated—all without lasers, knives, suction, needles, or scars. And there is no need for any anesthesia! With CoolSculpting, it’s apoptosis, not necrosis!
SMOOTHER BODY CONTOURS
One significant advantage of CoolSculpting is that, in addition to contouring those troublesome fat deposits, skin tightening has also been shown to occur. With CoolSculpting, you can reduce your fat and smooth your silhouette.
REDUCTION IN CELLULITE
Total Aesthetics is pleased to offer CoolSculpting Plus, which combines CoolSculpting with the Zimmer Z-Wave device to increase the effectiveness of CoolSculpting. Through the use of high-energy radial pulse therapy (RPT), the Zimmer Z-Wave can also improve the appearance of cellulite.
Many patients steer away from wearing certain form fitting or revealing clothing due to stubborn bulges in some areas of the body. CoolSculpting allows you to achieve a firmer, slimmer body that you can show off with confidence.

CoolSculpting usually takes 35 minutes. Because of this, you may want to bring a good book, your cell phone, or your laptop. At Total Aesthetics, complimentary wi-fi is offered.
CoolSculpting has an extremely low risk of complications; some temporary side effects can occur, such as swelling, bruising, or transient neuralgia (sensory change).
Typically, most patients see a noticeable reduction in fat and improvement of body contour within three weeks. Full results will take about three months, as the body’s metabolism needs time to eliminate the fat cells from the body.
Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot grow back; however, weight gain can prompt the remaining fat cells to enlarge or cause you to gain weight elsewhere.
There is no preparation needed for CoolSculpting. If possible, patients should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and certain vitamins and supplements.
There is minimal downtime with CoolSculpting. Patients can drive themselves home immediately following the procedure and resume normal activities that same day. They can even exercise the next day, although there may be some swelling and soreness in the treated areas.
CoolSculpting treatments are quite comfortable. Depending on which applicator is used, patients can feel a slight suction sensation followed by a gentle numbness with the cooling process. After treatment, some patients may feel a slight tingling in the area for a few minutes.
Dr. O’Connell will discuss the cost of your procedure during a consultation. At Total Aesthetics, there is no added charge for CoolSculpting Plus with the Zimmer Z-Wave.
CoolSculpting does not require any needles, scalpels, or anesthesia; therefore, patients will not have any scarring.
