The CoolSculpting® procedure is an innovative, non-invasive, safe way to reduce stubborn, unwanted fat. CoolSculpting® delivers a controlled cooling to effectively and gently target fat cells while leaving the skin unaffected. Fat cells in the treated area are crystallized and die. Over time your body naturally eliminates these dead cells resulting in a more contoured look.
With the CoolSculpting® an individual treatment plan is created by Maine Laser and Aesthetics CoolSculpting® specialist, Amanda Cornell. She will determine which hand pieces are needed and how many sessions may be recommended to reach your desired result. Changes may be seen in as soon as 3 weeks after a treatment, but most results are usually seen between 1-3 months after a treatment.
No surgery. No needles. No downtime. Treatment times vary depending on the hand piece used on an area. Most patients can return to regular activities immediately following treatment.
HOW IT WORKS
CoolSculpting® uses a targeted cooling applicator to treat fat cells. When the applicator is applied to an area, it cools fat down to a freezing point, killing the fat cells, while leaving the surrounding area untouched.

What does it feel like?
During the treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel a slight pulling, tugging, and pinching sensation. Controlled cooling is delivered to the targeted area, so intense cold might be felt that subsides after the area becomes numb.
Is coolsculpting® a substitute for dieting?
CoolSculpting® is not an alternative to diet and exercise or a weight loss procedure. This treatment works best for patients that are close to their ideal body weight.
