How Coolsculpting Works

Popsicles to Cryolipolysis Image of Popsicles

From Popsicles To Cryolipolysis

Years ago, scientists at Harvard University found that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. They realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold could target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the science on which the CoolSculpting treatment is based.

Proven Science

The CoolSculpting procedure delivers precisely controlled cooling to safely and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized, then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these cells, leaving a more sculpted you. Best of all, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and long-lasting, proven to reduce fat cells by 20-25%, with over 7 million treatments worldwide.

Testimonials

DEBBIE, 53

“I had Coolsculpting performed on my right upper arm, my “bat wing” as I called it, in early summer at Charlottesville Dermatology. The procedure was almost completely painless, just felt like suction on the skin, and lasted about 30 minutes. About a month later I could tell I had less fat on the back of my arm, and after about 2 months even my biceps looked more defined because the skin was tighter on my upper arm. I am so happy and can’t wait to do the other side and my double chin at Nua Medical Spa.”

ALISON, 24

I love to exercise: going to spin classes, running, and hiking. But no matter the amount of exercises I did I could never achieve the flat stomach I desired. A couple of months ago I had Coolscultping performed on my lower abdomen and was completely amazed with the results. I was comfortable during the procedure and was pleasantly surprised with how quick and painless the treatment was. Eight weeks after my treatment I finally had the flat stomach I had been working towards. The staff at Nua Medical Spa was comforting and knowledgeable, and I will definitely return to the office for any other treatments in Charlottesville.

ALLEN, 40

At even my thinnest, I was bothered by my double chin. Put on a couple pounds and it stands out like a sore thumb. When I heard that there was a non-invasive option to treat this as opposed to liposuction or surgery, I was excited to give it a try. I had CoolSculpting done at Nua Medical Spa about 6 months ago on my chin and started seeing a decrease in my excess fat in a month with full results in 3-4 months. I am delighted with my results. The treatment took less than 2 hours, had no discomfort, and has given life changing results.
