Coolsculpting is an innovative body contouring procedure designed to target stubborn, unwanted fat through the power of controlled cooling technology. With a similar idea in mind as liposuction, however CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, body contouring procedure.

  • Abdomen

Coolsculpting at a Glance: What you need to know

  • Uses controlled cooling to remove fat
  • FDA-cleared treatment
  • No anesthesia
  • Completely non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Proven, visible and long-lasting results
  • No downtime

How does Coolsculpting work?

Coolsculpting cools the skin until it reaches the temperature at which fat cells can no longer live. Your body then naturally processes and removes the dead cells to gradually reveal your new, contoured figure.

Is CoolSculpting right for you?

  • Close to your ideal body weight
  • Lead a generally healthy lifestyle
  • Unable to contour certain problem areas with diet and exercise alone

FAQ: Why can’t I get rid of stubborn fat on my own?

The harsh truth is that not all fat will respond to diet and exercise. Some of it will stick around no matter how many healthy lifestyle changes you make. When this occurs, a body sculpting treatment like Coolsculpting can help you achieve your goals.

The day of your treatment experience

Your Coolsculpting treatment will be performed by Robin Prusse, our incredible Aesthetician in the comfort of our Lake Oswego office. While you relax on the treatment table, she will move the Coolsculpting applicator over the target area.

Immediately after treatment begins, you will feel an intense cold sensation. However, it will subside in about ten minutes once your skin becomes numb to the temperature change. At that point, you may feel some mild tugging and pulling, but no pain. Overall the treatment is very comfortable, and many patients read or nap during the experience.

Because the procedure is completely non-surgical, you will be free to return to work right away without any activity restrictions.

Are there any side effects?

There are some side effects to the Coolsculpting treatment, but they are minimal and should subside fairly quickly. They include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Sensitivity

Your results: What to expect after Coolsculpting

Most patients need a few Coolsculpting experiences to achieve optimal results. In general, one treatment yields minimal change, and the more sessions you have the greater your results will be. After several appointments, you should notice a visible improvement in your body contour, with less prominent bulges of fat in the treatment area.

How to maintain your new figure

As long as you don’t gain a significant amount of weight after your Coolsculpting treatment, the results should last. To make sure you’re able to maintain your new figure, Dr. Lewis recommends sticking to a healthy diet and exercise plan moving forward.
