COVID-19 Update: The Dermatology of Institute of Boston, values the health and safety of our patients. Read More about how we are addressing the current situation.

How Does It Work


A CoolSculpting® applicator is applied to the desired area and the fat is cooled for approximately 1 hour per treatment site. Then, over the course of 8-12 weeks patients will experience approximately 25% reduction of fat in the area treated.


The treatment feels like a tugging on the skin but is not usually painful. The procedure does not involve needles or require anesthesia of any kind. Patients are able to have the procedure done and go back to work the same day or straight to the gym.  The procedure is not right for everyone. Your provider will help determine if you are a good candidate.


Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise

CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only these fat cells

In the weeks to follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells

CoolSculpting procedure results are long-term1, as treated fat cells are gone for good.
