CoolSculpting is a highly effective, non-invasive body contouring treatment. FDA-cleared for use in eight areas of the body, this innovative technology is painless and permanent. If you’ve been looking for help with fat reduction in various areas of the body but want to avoid any downtime, CoolSculpting could be the right solution for you. Anyone who has been unable to get the results they want with dieting and exercise is a possible candidate for CoolSculpting. It is not, however, intended as a weight loss tool for obesity.
Common treatment areas include:
- Upper arms
- Inner or outer thighs
- Love handles/sides

Schedule an appointment with the experts at Acadiana Dermatology to find out whether CoolSculpting is an appropriate treatment for you. Our experts will review your medical history and any concerns you have and will perform an examination to provide you with a personalized recommendation.
What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting procedure kills fat cells with cool gel pads that are placed on problem areas and provide controlled cooling, known as cryolipolysis.
What can I expect during a treatment session?
Patients report feeling intense cold at the treatment location for the first five to ten minutes. Suction pressure is also applied to assist in the process. This non-surgical counterpart to liposuction is so comfortable that patients usually spend much of the procedure watching TV, reading a book, or even napping.
The session ends with a massage of the treated area for two or three minutes to optimize your results. Your lymphatic system processes the destroyed fat cells and your liver then naturally processes them as waste before they are eliminated from your body. Those fat cells are gone for good. Because CoolSculpting is not invasive, there is little to no downtime. Many patients return to work immediately after their appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people require two sessions, each lasting between 30 minutes and an hour.
What results can I expect?
Some results may be seen as soon as three weeks after the first session. The second appointment is typically scheduled four to six weeks after the first one. Maximum results are usually seen a couple of months after treatment, and your body can continue to flush out fat cells for four to six months. Acadiana Dermatology is committed to natural-looking results that are as unique as you are.
CoolSculpting patients report a high level of satisfaction. If you’ve changed your diet and kicked up your exercise regime but still have areas that aren’t responding the way you’d like, CoolSculpting may be the solution you’re looking for.

When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Hubbell or any member of the Acadiana Dermatology team, you get the benefit of years of combined experience.
