Get Tighter & Toned with a Treatment that “Melts” Fat Away


While CoolSculpting is typically thought of as a tummy treatment, it’s actually much more versatile than that. In fact, CoolSculpting can be used to remove unwanted fat deposits from many areas of the body.

Read on to learn how CoolSculpting works, which areas it can treat, and who makes a good CoolSculpting candidate.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive, FDA cleared treatment.  With CoolSculpting, a controlled cooling mechanism is applied to unwanted fat deposits. The cool temperature initiates fat cell death, allowing the body to naturally remove them in the weeks that follow.

What Problem Areas Can I Treat with CoolSculpting?

At Esteem Medical Spa, we can treat a number of areas with CoolSculpting, including:

CoolMini before and after resultsUnder the Chin – CoolSculpting can eliminate the excess fat underneath your chin, improving your profile.

Inner & Outer Thighs – Many women struggle with excess fat on their inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting can be used to treat both these areas.

Abdomen – This is what CoolSculpting may be best-known for; CoolSculpting can tackle tummy fat, eliminating the waistband bulge.

Flank – You may have also heard the flank referred to as love handles. This is the fat that appears along the sides of the waist. With CoolSculpting, we can slim this section down, making it look leaner.

Back – Back fat and fat around the bra line can be treated with CoolSculpting to remove unwelcome bulges.

Under the Buttocks – Sometimes, this area is called the banana roll. CoolSculpting can treat this section, giving the backside a tighter, toned look.before and after coolsculpting on arm

Upper Arm – As women age, they often develop fat underneath their upper arms. With CoolSculpting, we can treat the arms, giving them a more toned appearance.

As you can see, CoolSculpting can treat a number of different areas. And in most cases, patients only require 1-3 treatments to achieve their desired results!

Who’s a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment for bulges and fat deposits that stubbornly stay put, no matter how much you diet and exercise. Unfortunately, it’s not a weight loss solution for obesity.

For that reason, the best CoolSculpting candidates are men or women who are within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight.

CoolSculpting is a great solution for those who want to remove stubborn pockets of fat using a non-invasive method with little to no downtime.
