Freeze Fat Away!
Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissue. During a CoolSculpting® treatment, precise controlled cooling is safely delivered underneath the skin to gently and effectively target the fat cells. The treated fat cells are crystallized, or frozen, and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Relax & Reshape!
The CoolSculpting® treatment is so comfortable that many patients nap during their treatment. You are free to bring any entertainment with you or enjoy the reading material supplied in our treatment rooms. Some patients choose to have other treatments done, such as HydraFacials, microdermabrasion, peels, Botox or any laser treatment outside of the CoolSculpting® treatment area. Since the CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, you can typically resume normal activities immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting®
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.
How much does the CoolSculpting® procedure cost?
The price for CoolSculpting® procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. MilfordMD physicians will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals and your budget.
How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting® session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are frozen (crystallized), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people have other cosmetic treatments done, read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Are there any side effects?
During the CoolSculpting® procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects could include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can return to your usual activities immediately. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still “flush” out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet & exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting® treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
What happens if I gain weight down the road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting® procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it more evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
