Beautiful slim body of woman in lingerieSummer is almost here, and there’s no better time than now to get ready to spend some time lying on the beach. Is your body ready for summer? Are you completely happy with your shape? Do you need a little help to perfect your figure?

Consistent exercise and healthy eating can help shed unwanted pounds but may still leave behind small deposits of fat that are difficult to address. If you’ve tried living a healthy lifestyle but have found that you’re still struggling with stubborn fat around your midsection or thighs, then an alternative treatment may be needed. At Hochstein Medspa, we offer a number of treatments designed to help you shape and contour your body to your desires. As a non-surgical, non-invasive alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting® can be an effective treatment for removing fat and restoring your body’s natural curves and contours.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

The major benefit to CoolSculpting® over traditional liposuction is that it is a non-surgical alternative for fat removal. This means no incision, no anesthesia, and minimal recovery time. CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved procedure that uses a cooling treatment to freeze fat cells.


A gel pad and applicator will be applied to your desired treatment sites. The cooling treatment will freeze the fat underneath. The fat remains in your body until the body’s natural processes filter and remove it. The procedure can feel extremely cold at first, but the area will become numb after five to 10 minutes. You may feel some tingling, but there is no pain. The procedure can take about 45 minutes (this will ultimately depend on the size of your treatment site), but you are free to work or read during this time. Some patients even sleep.


Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, CoolSculpting® does not require an extensive recovery period. Many patients resume their normal, daily activities immediately after the procedure. Additionally, it does not require incisions, so you will not be left with any residual scarring.


Your results will be noticeable soon after the treatment, though it will be obvious three to four weeks following the procedure. Results will gradually continue to show for several weeks. However, depending on the treatment areas, you may require multiple treatments to achieve the results you desire.

Though the procedure permanently removes these fat cells, it does not prevent new fat cell development. Thus, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after undergoing CoolSculpting® treatments.

Common Treatment Sites

CoolSculpting® can address unwanted fat in multiple areas of the body.


This is the most common area when addressing unwanted fat deposits. A trim, toned tummy is seen as an ideal of beauty. Instead of having a flabby tummy, you can have a lean, contoured midsection after your CoolSculpting® treatment.


If you’re annoyed with love handles that cause ill-fitting pants, CoolSculpting® can do away with that. You’ll have a more contoured waist so that your pants will better fit your shape.


Excess fat in the thighs can cause chafing and the inseam of your pants to wear out more quickly. It may even cause your body to look disproportionate. After CoolSculpting® treatments, you will have a more attractive body proportion and a reason to show off your legs!

Neck and Chin

Fat under the chin can create a lack of definition in your lower face. This is especially true when it causes your chin and neck to blend in without a clear transition. CoolSculpting® can help remove the excess submental fat, create a strong definition between the two features, and give you a slender neckline once again.
