We Can Now Treat More Areas with CoolSmooth!
If you are too slim for traditional CoolSculpting or bothered by fat in harder-to-reach areas such as the outer thighs, upper abdomen, and upper back, CoolSmooth™ may be a great option for you!
Many Atlanta CoolSculpting patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your CoolSculpting consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
The first step of the treatment is to place the device on the body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The resulting sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically Atlanta CoolSculpting patients 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. Learn more about CoolSculpting safety & side effects.
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.
What are the biggest benefits?
It involves no needles, surgery or downtime.
Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, patients can resume daily activities including work and exercise, immediately following treatment
Procedures last about one to two hours, so treatment can easily be performed during a lunch hour or without major disruption to the day.
The results are dramatic.
On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas, and patients typically start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.
The results can be long-lasting
After CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are metabolized by your body. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
How does CoolSculpting work?

Cryolipolysis is the result of a ground-breaking discovery by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. ZELTIQ is the exclusive licensee of this patented technology and therefore the only company to provide Cryolipolysis.
