Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can include regular exercise and eating balanced, healthy meals. Most people that are putting in the effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle, still have stubborn hard to get rid of body fat. These stubborn spots can be frustrating to deal with as targeted workouts don’t seem to get the job done. Sure, there are surgical procedures that will help eliminate the excess body fat in these areas, but not everyone is comfortable going under the knife to achieve their desired body image, besides the cost of these procedures are also quite costly.

A great non-surgical technique that will help you eliminate stubborn body fat, especially in those hard to target areas is freezing your fat away with CoolSculpting. The treatment is safe, effective, easy and precise as you can target multiple areas of the body, or hone in on just that one trouble spot.

CoolSculpting works by targeting and freezing the fat cells under the skin, using cryolipolysis technology. Once the fat cells are frozen, they begin to break down. Your body will metabolize these damaged cells overtime, these cells in most patients do not grow back. As the fat cells begin to disappear, there leaves a much thinner layer of fat in the trouble area, leaving that trouble zone perfectly contoured.

Getting rid of unwanted body fat by freezing it, is a great way to shape your body without downtime or scarring and can be used on most areas of the body where fat tends to accumulate.

Under the jaw line

Also known as double chin is an area that many people consider a trouble spot. There is a layer of fat stored just underneath the chin, and some people are genetically predisposed to have a thicker layer than others. Chin exercises and creams, unfortunately, don’t work, but CoolSculpting has shown excellent result as we can precisely target this area

Upper Arms

Having bumpy, flabby, or jiggly upper arms has some people avoiding going sleeveless. With CoolSculpting treatments, you won’t need to worry about covering up as you will freeze away that excess fat, smoothing and firming your upper arm area.


One of the most popular areas for patients to focus on is the abdomen. There are many fat cells surrounding your midsection, and even with diet and exercise, it is difficult to get a flat toned abdomen. CoolSculpting will help you achieve your goal of a flat stomach area by freezing away excess fat in the area.


More commonly known as love handles, are definitely hard to target zone using exercise alone. With CoolSculpting, you can reduce the bulge on your sides, helping you achieve your desired physique.

Back Fat

The lower and mid-back areas are common target areas for CoolSculpting. The lower back which extends out from your flanks or love handles, and just up from there on the sides of your mid-back both have a higher concentration of fat cells.


With CoolSculpting you can focus on both the inner thigh and the outer thigh. The inner thigh tends to get more attention as the skin is softer, allowing you to see and grab the fat more easily. The skin in the outer thigh area has lower elasticity than the inner thigh, meaning you can’t grab it as easily, but this can lead to lumps and uneven fat deposits for some individuals.
