CoolSculpting® at Graystone Aesthetic Center
Show More of Less. The Cool Solution.
It’s called stubborn fat on purpose. Because no matter how much pain you put into eating healthy and exercise, there’s no gain. It’s virtually impossible to lose that muffin top and those love handles. You’re forced to just live with them or think surgery. That’s not cool with us.
Developed by Harvard scientists, the CoolSculpting procedure is safe and FDA approved. This unique, patented, clinically proven procedure involves freezing fat cells without damage to your skin. There’s no knife. No suction hoses. No needles. No lasers, even. After your treatment at the Graystone Aesthetic Center, you get on with your busy day.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will the results be?
On average, each CoolSculpting® procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional procedures. Some patients, though, find that one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your doctor will discuss and design a plan that suits you best. Go to Patient Testimonials ››
What happens during the procedure?
You and your doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. Your doctor will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the tissue will be cooled most efficiently.
What does it feel like?
As the cooling goes to work in the first few minutes, you’ll feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people spend the time reading, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap.
Can I return to normal activities after my procedure?
Yes! The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
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 is still flushing fat cells, and will continue doing so for up to six months.
Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits.
Are the results permanent?
When you have your CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.
