If those annoying bulges and stubborn fat pockets bother you when putting on your clothes, CoolSculpting® may be the solution for you!

What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical fat reducing treatment that uses an innovative technology to eliminate bulges of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. You may be able to eliminate the fat on your own, but it can take months, if not years. With CoolSculpting, you can quickly reduce fat.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
Unlike most treatments to reduce excess fat, CoolSculpting does not require surgery, needles or downtime. The treatment can take less than one hour.

CoolSculpting Before & After Photos
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting involves no surgery or downtime! CoolSculpting works by cooling fat cells to the temperature that they freeze, and die off, and your body naturally eliminates them. Once in a comfortable position, we apply the applicator to the treatment area, and best of all… you can even use your cell phone, listen to your favorite music, relax and even take a nap!
How Many CoolSculpting® Treatments Will I Need?
As every person is different, our team of providers will let you know how many treatments you need in order to receive your desired results.
What Sort of Results Can I Expect?
CoolSculpting destroys excess fat cells, and they are permanently eliminated. After your treatment, you can expect an approximate 20% reduction in fat in the treated area within the next six months. Although, the most significant results are typically visible between two and four months. Staying healthy and fit reduces the likelihood of enlarging your remaining fat.
Is CoolSculpting® For Everyone, And Is This a Weight Loss Tool?
No, CoolSculpting® is not meant for everyone and is not to be used as a weight loss tool. Our team will review whether CoolSculpting is right for your particular goals during your complimentary consultation.
Is CoolSculpting® Covered By Health Insurance?
No, medical health insurance does not cover CoolSculpting®. However, we do offer a number of patient financing programs, should you be interested.
Schedule a Consultation
At Musick Dermatology, we offer a complimentary consultation with our professional CoolSculpting providers and will address all of your questions. If you’re comfortable moving forward with the treatment, and scheduling allows, you may even have the treatment the same day as your consultation. Best of all, you can return to your normal activities as soon as you are finished.
