Eliminate stubborn fat for good with CoolSculpting at Tuscaloosa MedSpa

Updated: Feb 20, 2020

Many people struggle with fat reduction in key problem areas of the body that are hard to target. This struggle can leave you feeling insecure and anxious about your appearance. Fat in the abdomen, inner and outer thigh, side, and under the chin are particularly troublesome for most people.

For a long time, the only way to instantly reduce fat in these areas was through various surgical operations. However, now there is another option. With the CoolSculpting procedure, you can eliminate these stubborn fat stores without surgery or downtime.

In this blog post, we’d like to discuss a bit more about this procedure and why we at Tuscaloosa MedSpa recommend CoolSculpting to our patients struggling with fat accumulation in common problem areas.

What is CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate fat. CoolSculpting is efficient in providing changes for those who have not seen results from changes in diet and exercise. Approved target areas include love handles, abdomen, and thighs.

Here’s how it works: 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. As a result, the fat cells are frozen and die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, resulting in a leaner, more sculpted body.

CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure and experience


During the consultation, we will discuss your pain points and your goals to create an individualized treatment plan tailored for you. We will discuss the different areas on which we will use the device, how many treatments you may need, and how to fit it all into your budget.


After we select the area(s) for treatment, we position the device on your body and apply controlled cooling. 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 laptops, or even take a nap during their treatment.

The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas treated during one visit. You can expect to spend anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes per session.


You will be able to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Initial changes will begin to show after a few weeks, and you can expect to see full results after about four to six months. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. If you experience anything out of the norm, speak with your trusted health professional.

We may recommend additional sessions to enhance your results further.

CoolSculpting candidates

Good candidates for CoolSculpting usually have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to minimize for aesthetic purposes. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.

Cost of CoolSculpting

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

Results and aftercare for CoolSculpting

With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, this technique is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

When it comes to results, you will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.

No supplements or pills are required, and you do not have to adopt a new diet or exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. Once you see the results, you will be more motivated to maintain the new version of yourself.
