About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting® is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment and only FDA-cleared procedure that uses controlled cooling to safely and effectively freeze your fat cells without surgery or downtime. At Preventive Esthetics, we will work with you to design a CoolSculpting® treatment plan tailored to your goals.

Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, so Harvard researchers developed CoolSculpting®, or cryolipolysis, to target stubborn fat cells beneath the skin. The procedure crystallizes and kills the fat cells so your body can dispose of them naturally. At the same time, CoolSculpting® stimulates collagen and elastin production, which tightens the treatment area.

As a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, it’s perfect for addressing love handles, double chins, and other diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits, without needles or recovery time.

Preventive Esthetics is among the few centers in Central New York to offer DualSculpting™, so we have two machines working overtime for you. As a DualSculpting™ provider, we cut your treatment time in half and pass the savings onto you. It’s CoolSculpting® times two—faster, cheaper and more efficient than ever.

CoolSculpting® has won “Best Fat-Reducing Treatment” and “Best Body Treatment” awards from NewBeauty, a preeminent beauty magazine, and received rave reviews from beauty-conscious celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Ali Landry, and Molly Sims.

As part of your CoolSculpting® package, Preventive Esthetics offers free resting metabolic rate testing (RMR). Your RMR is the unique number of calories that your body burns each day without exercise or activity.

Our RMR testing determines your calorie, sleep schedule and exercise needs, as well as your percent body fat. It also provides you with a thorough educational report on your results. Understanding your body’s individualized needs and pairing it with CoolSculpting® gives you the tools to achieve your fat reduction goals and successfully live a healthier life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate?

Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

How much does the CoolSculpting Procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?

We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

Where does the fat go?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes these dead cells naturally.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side Effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take supplements, follow a diet, or exercise?

No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.¹
