What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction that allows you to freeze away areas of stubborn fat. It isn’t a “weight loss” procedure; it’s designed for those who are already at or close to their target weight. Instead, it provides women and men an effective way to finally get rid of those pesky areas of fat that refuse to go. CoolSculpting Elite has been shown to reduce more fat in fewer cycles than regular CoolSculpting. We invite you to learn more about these fat reduction treatments at RefinedMD.

What Is CoolTone?

CoolTone is a muscle-strengthening, toning, and building technology that uses Active Magnetic Plus (AMP) technology. This energy source stimulates the muscles into perfect contractions that the body simply can’t achieve by itself. Most clients need 4 to 8 treatments for best results, each spaced approximately 1 week apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 3 to 6 months on average. A healthy diet and exercise routine is crucial to maximizing both CoolTone and CoolSculpting results. Find out more about CoolTone and how it can help you get stronger and healthier and achieve your body contouring goals.

CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite


CoolSculpting works by eliminating fat cells, averaging 18 – 20% fat reduction with each treatment. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your goals and body. After your consultation, our Master CoolSculpters will give you an estimate of the number of treatments you’ll need. The procedure is absolutely non-invasive. It involves an exterior U-shaped applicator that is placed on the target area(s) while the fat is “frozen.”

CoolSculpting Elite: The Next Generation of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting Elite is the latest generation of fat-freezing technology. Elite removes more fat per treatment, averaging 20 – 25% fat reduction. These applicators are C-shaped, so they align with the natural curves of the body. They come in seven shapes and sizes that allow for treating larger areas (like the stomach) in a shorter amount of time, so your CoolSculpting sessions will be even faster, easier, and more effective.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

While fat cells shrink with diet and exercise, they do not go away. Liposuction and CoolSculpting permanently remove fat. CoolSculpting takes advantage of the fact that fat freezes at a higher temperature than surrounding tissues. Its FDA-cleared, controlled cooling process kills targeted fat cells without harming the skin, muscle, and surrounding tissues. The body naturally absorbs the treated fat in the coming weeks and months causing areas to become slimmer gradually. If you want fat to be gone for good, safely, with no anesthesia or incisions, CoolSculpting may be the answer.

What To Expect During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite treatments are similar. We place the applicator over the targeted area of fat. You may feel suction (depending on the applicator used), then intense cold, and possibly a tingling sensation until the skin goes numb. The treatment itself is low key enough to allow you to squeeze in a Netflix episode or check your email during the session. Treatments are as quick as 35 minutes depending on the targeted area and applicator. No anesthetic is needed.

When Will I See Results?

Results develop gradually as treated fat dies and is flushed out of the body. You’ll see full results within 6 months of your final treatment.

Are There Side Effects?

Possible side effects after CoolSculpting are rare, minimal, and typically temporary. Treated areas may be slightly red, swollen, tingly, or sensitive initially but not enough to interrupt your daily activities and exercise routine.

Does CoolSculpting Tighten Loose Skin?

CoolSculpting is only for fat reduction. If loose skin is another concern of yours, RefinedMD offers a variety of nonsurgical options for:

These can be a great complement to any CoolSculpting treatment.
