CoolSculpting treatable areas:

- Under buttocks (Banana Roll)
How it works:
You’ve heard it called “fat freezing” and that’s exactly what it is. Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature, they freeze. Your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells through your lymphatic system, resulting in a 20-25% reduction in fat in a treated area over time.
What to expect during your treatment:
Our medical professionals will place the applicator on your desired treatment area. You may experience a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by a cooling sensation.
During the procedure you may feel pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations go away as the area becomes numb.
After the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.
After the applicator is detached, your provider will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction.
When will I see results?
You may begin to see improvements in the treated area a few weeks after your treatment, but it may take up to four months before you see the full and final results.
How many sessions does it take to see results?
There are two main factors to consider when this question is asked:
- What area are we treating? The smaller the area, the fewer the treatments
- How much fat are you wanting to remove? The more fat there is, the more treatments you will require.
While every patient is different, most patients benefit from one to three sessions for each area of concern.
