ELIMINATE stubborn fat – no surgery, no downtime.* CoolSculpting® is the only FDA cleared procedure that uses advanced cooling technology to safely target fat cells and destroy them. Once treated, the fat cells should not come back. Results are proven, noticeable, and lasting,* so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
A New Solution for Stubborn Fat
Despite dieting and exercise, it is very common for our bodies to have areas of fatty tissue that just don’t seem to go away no matter how dedicated we are to a weight loss program. Now, fat bulges that linger around the stomach in the form of love handles and muffin tops as well as extra fat on the inner and outer thighs can finally be removed. If you’ve been working out but still stuck with stubborn fat, a new approach will make a difference.
CoolSculpting, also known as body contouring, slims the treated areas, making your clothes fit more comfortably and your silhouette more striking. You’ll see lasting results – once the treated fat is gone, it’s gone for good.* Available for the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and now under the chin, CoolSculpting eliminates fat in those tough problem areas. The most exciting addition to our practice is the ability to kill fat on the neck, effectively removing a double chin.
The world’s leading non-invasive fat reduction treatment, CoolSculpting has been named a top procedure for fat pockets by outlets ranging from New Beauty to the New York Times. Millions of treatments have been performed worldwide – and yours could be next.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting works with the body’s natural processes to treat unwanted fat. This works because fat cells in our body freeze before surrounding tissues (at a higher temperature). CoolSculpting technology safely delivers a precise temperature to targeted fat areas. The skin and surrounding areas are protected while the fat cells under the skin are frozen* until crystallization occurs. Those fat cells die, through a process called cryolipolysis.
Dieting and exercise only shrink existing fat cells, while CoolSculpting kills them. Over time, your body naturally eliminates the dead cells, leaving your body with a noticeably sculpted look.*
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I a body contouring candidate?
Good candidates present unwanted, noticeable bulges in specific areas. CoolSculpting is designed for patients who have resistant fat that has stayed with them through dieting and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution; it is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Schedule a complimentary consultation to learn whether you’re likely to see ideal results.
How does CoolSculpting work?
Most of the body’s cells are destroyed at a temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Fat cells have a different freezing point, dying at 37°F. This means that we can target fat cells without impacting surrounding tissue. Once CoolSculpting has cooled the target area, those fat cells die, and disperse from the area.* As the body’s natural healing and metabolism processes take hold, the cells will be gradually eliminated.
How much does CoolSculpting in Hinsdale cost?
The price will vary depending on the areas being treated, the number of sessions, and your larger treatment goals. We will create a customized treatment plan that suits your unique needs.
How long are treatment sessions, and how many will I need?
Each treatment lasts as little as one hour. The number of sessions depends on the number of areas being treated per visit. Your treatment plan may require more or fewer sessions than is average. We will discuss the number of sessions involved prior to your first treatment, but you may benefit from additional sessions if initial results aren’t ideal. Your clinician will develop a treatment plan personalized to your specific fat reduction goals before getting started.
Where does the treated fat go?
After treated cells are frozen, the body processes the fat, eliminating those dead cells.* This allows you to freeze fat without harming healthy skin.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for treatment of the flank, abdomen, thighs, and neck. Over one million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed worldwide, making it a proven, effective treatment for fat reduction.*
What will treatment be like?
Patients lie on the treatment table, with the target area exposed. The provider places the CoolSculpting device on the fatty area, and draws the bulge up between the handpiece’s cooling panels. This feels like a firm pull, and the skin in the area becomes cool and eventually numb. The fat cells need to reach a temperature of 37°F to freeze, but are cooled slowly to prevent shock or harm to your skin tissue.* Once the skin becomes numb, patients feel comfortable and are able to relax – many read, check email, nap or watch Netflix on our widescreen TV in the treatment room.
After your session, your skin will retain the shape of handpiece. Don’t worry – this is only temporary.* Your provider will massage the area to help redistribute the fat cells and promote healing.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
CoolSculpting is not typically painful. Patients will feel pressure and intense cold during the first few minutes of their treatment. Afterwards, the skin becomes numb, and any sensation dissipates. The cooling mechanism works to keep patients comfortable* even as it eliminates fat cells – how many treatments can offer an advantage like that?
Because CoolSculpting stimulates natural processes within the body, there is no downtime* following treatment. Patients are typically able to return to their daily life, to work, and to a variety of activities immediately. Some experience redness, minor bruising, or numbness, but this is temporary and will fade.
What kind of results can I expect?
In the weeks following treatment, you will begin to see the treated areas slim. Fat will gradually fade from the area, with the target section of the body becoming smaller and firmer.* CoolSculpting results need to be seen to be believed. You will start seeing results anywhere from a few weeks out up to 2-3 months post-treatment.

How long do results take to show?
You should begin to see subtle changes within the three weeks following your treatment. After two months, the most dramatic slimming will have taken hold. In the 4-6 months after treatment, you may see additional changes as your body continues to eliminate treated fat cells.*
What happens if I gain weight at some point after treatment?
Many patients are so happy with their results that they take even better care of themselves, and stay in great shape. If you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly across your body, rather than seeing it take hold in the treated problem areas.
Are CoolSculpting results permanent?
Once those fat cells are frozen, they will not regenerate.* If you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet, the areas will remain stable and slim, and you’ll keep loving your new shape.
