Would you like to freeze those stubborn fat pockets away for good? That’s exactly what happens with CoolSculpting. The procedure freezes fat cells with a technology called cryolipolysis. The cells are processed naturally through the lymphatic system and eliminated permanently through waste. Slim Studio is an Atlanta CoolSculpting and Body Sculpting Center where you can learn more about CoolSculpting and what it can do for you!
Even if you are dedicated to diet and exercise, many of us still have areas of fat deposits that just don't seem to budge.
“Love handles” are a good example. That’s where the literal fat freezing of CoolSculpting comes in. CoolSculpting targets the specific areas you can’t seem to lose on your own and gets rid of those fat cells permanently. You’ll love watching the "CoolSculpted" areas slim down in the days and weeks following your treatment.
Technically known as cryolipolysis, this procedure can reduce the number of fat cells in the treated area between 20 and 25 percent. CoolSculpting’s unique technology uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells with minimal recovery time.
This procedure is FDA cleared and effective, with lasting and undeniable results. If your goal is to attack fat deposits, you may want to consider CoolSculpting as a solution. While CoolSculpting targets fat cells for elimination, it will not harm the surrounding tissues such as skin and muscle. CoolSculpting treats "subcutaneous" fat or fat directly under the skin. CoolSculpting does not address the deepest layer of fat, known as "viscereal" fat. Viscereal fat can only be minimized by diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is FDA cleared for reduction of fat in the following areas:
While CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure with little or no downtime, there are some people who are not candidates for the procedure.
Pregnant and nursing women should not undergo CoolSculpting, and it is contraindicated for anyone with a pacemaker or similar implanted device. Our certified CoolSculpting providers will review all the safety information with you at your consultation.
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. You may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you are close to or at your ideal weight and have stubborn areas that you would like to address.
Prep time: None
Results: Three weeks; final results at 12 weeks
Duration: Permanent fat cell elimination
The typical application time is 30 minutes, although a few are longer in duration. The CoolSculpting applicators utilize vacuum to assist in placement, so the patient will feel some pulling in the area, then the cold is delivered. Following the treatment, a two-minute massage is performed to the area treated. During the treatment, you can watch TV, read, even use your phone or computer. Our technicians will keep you very comfortable during the quick treatment, and you can return to normal activities immediately after your treatment.
To begin the treatment, the skin is prepped with an alcohol wipe, then a gel pad is placed on the area to be treated. This gel pad is used to protect the skin. The cold is delivered through various CoolSculpting applicators, each designed for a specific body part.
There is no sedation involved with CoolSculpting. Patients may undergo annual CoolSculpting “touch-ups” or have the procedure repeated when needed. At Slim Studio in Atlanta, CoolSculpting is one of our Treat to Complete procedures. We encourage our Atlanta CoolSculpting patients to get the most out of their investment by undergoing the full treatment plan that is recommended.

At Slim Studio, we have found that our patients have a number of questions regarding CoolSculpting treatments.

Patients may experience some mild discomfort during the first few minutes of the CoolSculpting treatment, but the area being treated becomes numb in a few minutes, and you don't feel the cold following the numbness. You may expect to feel some soreness and tenderness following the treatment, and the numbness may persist for several weeks, then will go away. At your consultation, the Slim Studio staff will thoroughly review everything to expect during the treatment, and all safety information.
The side effects of CoolSculpting are generally mild, but one of the rare side effects of CoolSculpting is Paradoxical Hyperplasia. This uncommon side effect causes the tissues in the treated area to become raised and firm, and liposuction is the corrective treatment to eliminate Hyperplasia.
