Are you frustrated by unhealthy and unsightly fat that seems to hang around despite your best efforts with diet and exercise? Stay cool, with our Denver CoolSculpting. An effective, non-invasive, safe, and comfortable fat reduction procedure that quite literally freezes away stubborn fat cells.
Stubborn fat rolls that do not respond to diet and exercise can be noticeably reduced with CoolSculpting®, a non-invasive fat-freezing procedure that is performed without the need for anesthesia or downtime. CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved procedure.
CoolSculpting offers an attractive and intriguing treatment option to reduce body fat without the hassles and concerns of surgery. Scientifically called cryolipolysis, these FDA-approved treatments are quick, safe, and effective. CoolSculpting has become widely popular in the United States, with treatments increasing by more than 800 percent since the FDA approved the procedure in 2010.
Non-surgical body contouring is made possible with the fat freezing technology of CoolSculpting®, which works by permanently destroying selectively targeted fat cells.
Fat in treated areas will not come back as long as you maintain a healthy body weight. Very cold temperatures are applied to the skin using handheld paddles. The device freezes fat cells so they die off over a period of several weeks, leaving your treated area noticeably slimmer.
Some interesting history is in order. Scientists developed this technique after studying frostbite. They discovered that fat freezes at a higher temperature than does skin. The device used in CoolSculpting destroys fat while leaving your skin and other tissues unharmed. As a non-surgical body contouring procedure, CoolSculpting® is meant to refine stubborn areas of fat that patients have had trouble eliminating through diet and exercise alone.
There are many benefits to getting CoolSculpting. Other than the fact that it’s non-invasive and permanently gets rid of fat cells, here are some others:
CoolSculpting® is a body contouring procedure that can be used nearly anywhere a person has a stubborn pocket of fat, including:
If you tend to store excess fat in certain body parts but are otherwise at a healthy weight, then this procedure may be right for you.
CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution. Like liposuction, it is designed to shape and refine fat deposits so patients can look better in clothes and feel more confident about their body shape.
But CoolSculpting is not for everyone. Complications can result in people who have loose or weak skin tone. Patients who have blood, nerve, or skin conditions that worsen in cold temperatures should not seek CoolSculpting.Pregnant or nursing women should delay this procedure.
CoolSculpting takes about one hour to perform, depending on the number and size of areas treated. You can have CoolSculpting performed on one body part or multiple areas at the same time.
The targeted fat roll is placed between two cold paddles. The device transmits the cold energy beneath the skin surface and into the fatty tissue. Since fat freezes at a higher temperature than other kinds of cells, the nearby tissue and skin aren’t adversely affected. The cold temperature freezes the fat cells, which then are killed and expelled naturally over a period of several weeks post-treatment. There is no anesthesia or surgery involved, so patients can drive themselves back to home or work and resume most daily activities almost immediately.
You may feel some “exercise soreness” for a day or two. That’s about it!
Remember that your body will naturally eliminate the fat cells that were destroyed in your procedure over the course of a few weeks.
Results from CoolSculpting are not instant. It takes at least a few weeks to see noticeable effects.
The earliest results may be visible in just three weeks, but some patients take up to two months to start seeing the effects. It depends on how fast your body breaks down the destroyed fat cells and expels them. Each person is unique. Results may continue to develop over a period of 3-6 months.
The fat cells destroyed in your CoolSculpting treatment will not come back. So if you do regain fat, it will not be in your treated areas.
While CoolSculpting requires no specific diet or workout program, healthy eating and regular exercise will help you optimize and maintain your results.
One treatment may be sufficient to eliminate a single small fat roll. Larger areas may require 2-4 treatments to achieve more dramatic results. At Rejuvenate, our clinicians are happy to provide an estimated number of treatment sessions necessary to address your needs and goals.

Most patients find CoolSculpting treatments to be only mildly uncomfortable. The results are well worth less than one hour of temporary discomfort. You will feel a cold, pulling sensation as the CoolSculpting® device freezes the fat cells. Your CoolSculpting® technician at Rejuvenate will strive to make sure you are comfortable during the procedure.
Results of clinical studies conclude that CoolSculpting is both safe and effective. Risks are few and rare, and the procedure does not damage your liver or other internal organs.
Every such procedure poses risks, including infection and allergic reactions. Risks specific to CoolSculpting include:
Common side effects are temporary redness, bruising and stinging.People who get treatment around their neck may temporarily experience a feeling of fullness around the back of their throat.
CoolSculpting was initially developed specifically to eliminate belly fat (and does a great job at it) before it proved highly effective in treating many other body areas. Excess belly fat is linked to diabetes and heart disease. So getting rid of it is an important health care component.
One treatment can often be sufficient to eliminate as much as 24 percent of targeted belly fat.
While it will vary from person to person, patients are often able to reduce their waist size by up to three inches. CoolSculpting will also have a significant slimming effect on all other treated body areas. Get ready to buy some new clothes!
Nope. You’ll have no “shrinkles,” which often result from crash diets, liposuction, or bariatric surgery. In fact, CoolSculpting can noticeably reduce skin laxity and increase dermal thickness, resulting in an improved appearance of “crepey” skin.
There is significantly less risk of damaging surrounding skin and tissue.
Liposuction is primarily used for removing larger areas of excess fat, while CoolSculpting works better on smaller areas. Remember that while liposuction is an invasive procedure, CoolSculpting involves no incisions, needles, anesthesia, or downtime.
Since CoolSculpting is considered a cosmetic procedure, your insurance will likely not cover the costs.
That will depend on the body parts you want treated and the number of sessions you need to address them. The CoolSculpting website states the typically personalized treatment costs between $2,000 and $4,000. Have a comprehensive discussion about costs with your provider before treatment.
Cumulative results from a variety of stories indicate that up to 86 percent of treated patients see improvements following CoolSculpting.
