Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to get rid of stubborn body fat, and invasive surgeries are a large expense that can have long periods of recovery.
If you are struggling with unwanted body fat, but desire a non-invasive procedure with natural-looking results, then CoolSculpting® may be the right treatment for you. Combining innovative technology with efficiency, CoolSculpting® can treat problem areas on your body safely. At Destination Aesthetics, we provide CoolSculpting® treatment for clients looking to improve their body’s natural contours in the most effective way possible.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that uses controlled cooling techniques to freeze away fat cells and eliminate unwanted body fat in the abdomen, inner and outer thigh, chin and love handle region. The procedure targets specific problem areas on the body and gently freezes them to create a slimmer physique. The fat cells that have been frozen die over time and leave the body looking more toned. CoolSculpting® involves no incisions or anesthesia and requires very minimal downtime, which is why many clients prefer it as opposed to more invasive procedures. It is also the only non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that has been approved by the FDA.
CoolSculpting® involves the placement of a gel pad and an applicator on the treatment area. The applicator then administers a controlled amount of cooling to the body and freezes the fat. In the following weeks, your body will begin to process the frozen fat cells and eliminate them, resulting in a long-term solution for fat-reduction.
What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting®?
Many fat-reduction methods involve surgery, needles and recovery, but CoolSculpting® bypasses each of those criteria and provides a completely non-surgical approach. You can return to normal daily activities almost immediately after the procedure is complete, and the only care requirements you will have are to sit back and wait for your results to take shape.
Some benefits of CoolSculpting® include:
- No preparation before surgery
- Minimal discomfort during treatment
- No incisions or anesthesia
- No prescribed pain medication after surgery
- Very little downtime required for recovery
Because the procedure is so gentle, you can carry out other important activities while you wait for your treatment to finish. Many clients choose to read a book, check their email or play a game while they wait. During treatment, you will feel an intense cold at first, but as the treatment area becomes numb, any discomfort will usually fade. After treatment, you will feel a tingling sensation as the feeling returns on the treatment area, but once the area is massaged, you should feel normal.
What Happens During the Procedure?
If you are interested in a CoolSculpting® procedure, a consultation at Destination Aesthetics will help you determine whether the procedure is right for you by taking a look at your body and deciding which areas would be best for CoolSculpting®. Although the procedure aids in fat-reduction, CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss solution and will not produce desired results in clients who are obese.
During your procedure, you will sit in a treatment chair, and a gel pad will be placed on the area needing fat reduction. An applicator that is connected to a CoolSculpting® machine will be attached to the gel pad, and the area of fat will be drawn up and into the applicator to begin freezing. You may feel some suction-like pressure at first, but any discomfort will soon dissipate. The amount of time it takes to complete CoolSculpting® treatment depends on each case, but typically takes no more than an hour.
What Is Recovery Like?
Immediately after your CoolSculpting® procedure, you may feel some slight irritation and soreness in the targeted area, but these side effects are only temporary. Within a few weeks, your body will begin to metabolize the fat cells that have been frozen – other areas that were not treated with CoolSculpting® will not be impacted – and you may begin to see results within the first three weeks. You will notice the most drastic changes after one to three months, and your body will continue to process fat cells for up to six months after treatment. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, there is no reason why your CoolSculpting® procedure will not last, and because it is so minimally invasive, you can schedule follow-up procedures at a later date.
CoolSculpting® at Destination Aesthetics
At Destination Aesthetics, we offer both CoolFit and CoolSmooth treatments by CoolSculpting®, which specifically target the inner and outer thighs.

We also provide CoolSculpting treatment for the arms, upper and lower abdomen, flanks and bra area.
We will start your procedure with a one-on-one consultation with a CoolSculpting expert and discuss the goals you have for your body in order to determine the best, most customized plan. Then we will look at the specific areas that you wish to enhance and determine which applicator will work best for your needs. We can typically design a personalized treatment plan in one office visit, and we take pride in creating a treatment plan that reflects your desired results.
