CoolSculpting in Philadelphia, PA

Freeze away stubborn fat, without surgery and hours at the gym.

What if you could lose fat without having surgery or downtime? That’s what makes CoolSculpting truly revolutionary – it’s a nonsurgical treatment that reduces unwanted fat and you can resume normal activities immediately. It’s effective, comfortable and millions of CoolSculpting procedures have been performed worldwide. The results are proven, noticeable and lasting.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a scientifically proven, FDA-approved fat reduction treatment. Treatments can be done on most areas of the body with “pinchable” fat, including the abdomen, love handles, thighs and arms. Using the latest innovative technology, CoolSculpting freezes fat away so you can look and feel your best.

Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. 

The CoolSculpting Procedure

At Lumen, a certified CoolSculpting technician will discuss your goals and determine the areas to be treated. The device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied via specially designed CoolSculpting applicators that mold around the contours of your body.

Treatments typically last an hour (per area) and patients relax with little to no discomfort. During your procedure, you may read, check email or even take a nap. CoolSculpting treatments may need to be repeated, and we’ll create a customized treatment plan for you. CoolSculpting results in up to 25% reduction of unwanted body fat, typically two months after treatment.

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.


CoolSculpting and Laser lipolysis (liposuction) are two effective solutions that permanently remove fat cells. Both are performed in the office, are safe, have minimal downtime, proven results and a quick recovery period. A key difference is that CoolSculpting is completely noninvasive – no anesthesia, needles or incisions. Liposuction, specifically SmartLipo, is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses local anesthesia and very small entry incisions that don’t require stitches. See our side-by-side comparison of CoolSculpting and SmartLipo.
