What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is one of the most popular and positively regarded cosmetic treatments available on the market today. It is the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment, with a 95% rate of patient satisfaction.
This revolutionary body contouring procedure was first discovered through an unlikely source — popsicles. When Harvard University scientists observed children that at a lot of popsicles, they noticed that dimples began to form in their cheeks. After further study, these scientists realized that the dimpling was caused by the intense cold of the popsicle.
By freezing and destroying fat cells in a controlled and painless way, CoolSculpting® can tighten, tone, and sculpt nearly any area of the body. The most popular treatment areas include:
- Double chin
Aesthetics by RidgeView Dermatology – A CoolSculpting® Certified Practice

How it Works
CoolSculpting® works based on Cryolipolysis®, or the biological principle that fat cells have a lower freezing temperature than cells. When controlled cooling is applied to areas of the body with persistent fat, it freezes and destroys the fat cells there and leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. Over time these cells are flushed from the body, leaving you with a slimmer, more sculpted appearance.
One of the best things about CoolSculpting® is how enduring its results are — the changes brought on by this treatment are usually permanent. This is because CoolSculpting® affects the number of fat cells in an area, not the size of those fat cells. Since there is a smaller total number of fat cells after treatment, the ability to regain fat in the treatment area is dramatically lowered for years to come.
What to Expect from Treatment
The entire CoolSculpting® treatment is fast and easily tolerated. When the procedure begins, some patients feel intensely cold for the first 5-10 minutes. Fortunately, the treatment becomes comfortable after this period of time as the area becomes numb. During treatment, patients can read, check their emails, even take a nap! CoolSculpting® is that comfortable!
