CoolSculpting is a unique fat-freezing treatment that permanently destroys fat cells, simply by dropping their temperature. The treatment involves applying a specialized applicator to your targeted area. This applicator uses vacuum technology to gently suction your skin and send waves of freezing-cold energy through your epidermis and into your fat tissue (adipose tissue). This is known as cryolipolysis.
At birth, we are born with all the fat cells we will ever have. If we gain weight, the cells expand in size. If we lose weight, the cells shrink. CoolSculpting actually kills the fat cells – up to 20-25% of fat cells in a treated area are destroyed with a cycle of Coolsculpting! The killed fat cells are flushed out of your body.

At the office of Dr. Jane H. Lisko, MD, your CoolSculpting Like It, Love It, Gotta Have It! treatment package is entirely personalized to you. During your consultation, your area of concern will be discussed. In addition, other treatment areas will be reviewed to really transform your look. In many cases, Dr. Lisko can target several areas during a single treatment — such as your abdomen and your flanks — so you’re one step closer to achieving your body goals.
It takes a few weeks for your body to dispose of all of those destroyed fat cells after undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment. You may start noticing an improvement in as little as three weeks, although the most dramatic results tend to shine through around the three-month mark.
Your body continues flushing away fat particles for up to six months, meaning you can continue experiencing an improvement in your targeted area week after week. In many cases, Dr. Lisko finds that a single CoolSculpting session provides great improvement. If you have more stubborn fat build-up or are motivated to treat to transformation, Dr. Lisko may recommend two or three CoolSculpting sessions.
