Coolsculpting for Non-Surgical Body Contouring in Atlanta
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, body-slimming procedure; anesthesia, needles, and incisions aren’t necessary during this treatment. The effectiveness of CoolSculpting is based on the principle of cooling subcutaneous fat to the point that the cooling process destroys the fat cells, which are then absorbed by the body.

Coolsculpting 101 – What You Need to Know about Body Contouring
How does it work?
Coolsculpting technology uses controlled cooling to affect only the targeted fat cells. In the weeks to follow, your body eliminates dead cells through natural metabolic processes. Coolsculpting results are long-term; treated fat cells are gone for good.
What can CoolSculpting do for me?
Patients experience increased confidence in their appearance after CoolSculpting. After a series of treatments, you should notice sleek curves and better-fitting clothing, and when you feel good about your appearance, you can go about your daily life with improved self-esteem.
Is it right for me?
Coolsculpting, like liposuction, is best for patients close to their ideal body weight but who have trouble spots that won’t change with diet and exercise. For women, common problem areas are the abdomen, hips, and thighs. For men, troublesome spots are usually the lower abdomen, flanks, and chin. Most of us are genetically prone to store fat in certain areas, and these areas tend to be resistant to diet and exercise. That is where CoolSculpting can help!
To see best results with Coolsculpting, you will want to be within 20 to 30 pounds of your ideal and maintainable weight. While making changes to your lifestyle is not required, we encourage our patients to stay active and eat a balanced diet. Finally, having achieved their ideal body, many men and women are motivated to live out an increasingly healthy lifestyle.
For CoolSculpting to work, the device must be able to latch on to the fat. Thus, for your CoolSculpting treatment to be successful, you must have enough pinchable fat. While not exact, one should have no less or no more than a couple inches of thickness for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions about Coolsculpting
Is it painful?
Within the first few minutes of your treatment, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates five to ten minutes into the treatment. Many people read, watch TV, work on a laptop, or even take a nap. As a non-invasive treatment option, CoolSculpting can be performed during a lunch break.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, one CoolSculpting treatment reduces the amount of fat in the area by as much as 25 percent. If you’d like to see more significant improvement, you’ll probably benefit from another treatment in the same area.
How long does the treatment take to perform?
Patients’ treatment goals will determine how long the CoolSculpting procedure will take. Usually, a Coolsculpting session can be completed between 30-60 minutes, making it easier to fit into your schedule compared to surgical options. At The Spa at NAPS, we have dual CoolSculpting devices to optimize your treatment in the shortest time possible.
How long do the results last?
CoolSculpting is a safe, permanent, and FDA-approved procedure that offers long-lasting fat reduction and body contouring. You may start to see changes three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after three months.
What is my recovery time?
Most patients can return to work immediately.
How does Coolsculpting differ from other fat reduction techniques, such as Kybella® and liposuction?
Coolsculpting destroys the fat by a freezing process; Kybella® injections contact a liquid that dissolves fat, and liposuction mechanically eliminates the fat. Liposuction produces the most dramatic results but is associated with slightly more downtime (three to four days) and is usually performed in the operating room with anesthesia. Kybella® can only address small areas of fat, such as under the chin. CoolSculpting can remove more fat than Kybella®, requires no anesthesia and does not require any downtime, unlike liposuction.
How much does it cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on the area of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas to achieve their goals. A single session starts at $750.
Is it safe?
In the US, the Coolsculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges. It is also FDA approved to affect the appearance of fullness in the chin (submental) area.
Are there any post-care activity restrictions after the treatment?
No there are no restrictions after a CoolSculpting session.
