CoolSculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.

Roger H. Stewart, M.D. was the first in Broward to offer CoolSculpting, and has performed over 7,000 treatments to date. His practice holds the highest ranking from CoolSculpting as a “Diamond Crystal Practice” due to the volume of treatments performed. Skin Center ranks in the top five busiest CoolSculpting centers nationwide and is one of the only centers in Florida with four CoolSculpting machines. The flexibility of four machines helps ensure appointment availability for this popular procedure while offering patients the shortest appointments by treating multiple areas at once.
What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Benefits of CoolSculpting include:
- It involves no needles, surgery or downtime. Since the CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive, patients can resume daily activities including work and exercise immediately following treatment.
- It’s comfortable. CoolSculpting patients can sit or lie down and relax during the procedure. The procedure is performed in a medical office, under the supervision of a physician specializing in cosmetic procedures.
- It’s convenient. Procedures typically last for about one hour, so treatment can easily be performed at lunchtime or during an opportune time of day.
- The results are dramatic. Patients can expect an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas in as little as three weeks after their procedure.
What does it feel like?
During the first few minutes of the cooling, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates and patients experience no pain. Patients often read, work on their laptops, watch television or simply relax during the procedure.
CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight-reduction program for obese individuals. The best candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly yet have pockets of fat that are unresponsive. It is appropriate for those who are seeking spot reduction for specific areas of fat but are not interested in a surgical procedure.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the 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 one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the love handles and proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Typically, there is minimal to no downtime after the procedure though some patients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling and numbness. Numbness can persist for several weeks after a procedure. Your doctor can discuss more about what to expect during and after treatment at your consultation.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The price for CoolSculpting varies, depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals. An estimate of the cost cannot be determined until your doctor evaluates you in person. Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but additional treatments may provide you with even more fat reduction.
A few months after your CoolSculpting treatment, you will look great and your clothes will fit better. As long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise routine, these results should remain steady for the long-term.
