For patients looking to get rid of hard-to-eliminate fat, CoolSculpting® is an innovative body sculpting treatment that targets problem areas and permanently destroys stubborn fat cells — without having to undergo an invasive plastic surgery procedure.
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING®?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA approved procedure that exposes targeted fat areas to cold temperatures using a specialized machine. Since fat is more sensitive to cold than the rest of the body’s cells, the frozen cells die off and are naturally eliminated from the body in the weeks and months after CoolSculpting® for a slimmer, trimmer look.
Although the effects of CoolSculpting® are comparable to those of liposuction, CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution. Rather, it works best for individuals who maintain a healthy weight but are simply looking to eliminate fat in problem areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the most common questions we’re asked about MINT™ PDO lifts include:
Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting® Fat Reduction?
The best candidates for CoolSculpting® are individuals who are generally healthy and near their target weight, and who wish to eliminate unwanted fat from stubborn areas, like those on the back and belly as well as “love handles.” When you come to Evolve Medical Associates for a consultation, we’ll take the time to get to know you and understand your lifestyle and habits, as well as your medical history, to determine if you’re a candidate for CoolSculpting®.
Does CoolSculpting® Hurt?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure with minimal discomfort. Although some patients describe feeling pressure and intense cold at the start of their session, this sensation dissipates within the first few minutes of treatment. Our treatment sessions may last up to two hours, depending on the size of the area being treated.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on your aesthetic goals, as well as the size of the areas being treated. When you come in for your CoolSculpting® consultation, we’ll craft an individualized treatment plan just for you, and this might include scheduling additional sessions based on your needs.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting® depends on how many treatments are needed to help you achieve your body contouring goals. It will also depend on the areas to be treated, and the size of the applicator you need; we carry different sizes to effectively treat multiple areas of the body. If we decide CoolSculpting® is right for you, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of the overall cost at your CoolSculpting® consultation.
When Can I Resume Normal Activities After CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® requires no downtime, although some patients experience mild pain, numbness, redness, swelling, and tingling in the treatment areas following their session. These side effects wear off in the days following treatment and can be addressed with over-the-counter pain relievers, although many patients go right back to work after their CoolSculpting® treatment session!
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Results may vary for everyone, but most patients notice a difference several weeks after a treatment, as the body takes time to naturally remove and eliminate the destroyed fat cells from the treatment area. Many patients choose to undergo several sessions for optimal results.
How Long Do CoolSculpting® Results Last?
When you lose weight, fat cells are not eliminated — they only shrink. By eliminating these cells, CoolSculpting® ensures that once the cells are dead, they never come back. However, if you gain weight in the future, it would be evenly distributed throughout your body, even in the area that was treated with CoolSculpting®. This means that the results of CoolSculpting® can be permanent, provided you maintain a healthy weight!
