Even when you maintain a healthy diet and strict exercise regime, stubborn areas of fat can remain. CoolSculpting® is a completely non-surgical way to reduce fat and improve your physique—and now you can take your treatment to the next level with the CoolSmooth™ applicator like our many patients from Washington, DC; Chevy Chase and Bethesda, MD; Arlington and Fairfax, VA; and surrounding areas. This flat handpiece can spot-treat difficult parts of the body, like the outer thighs and other areas of “non-pinchable” fat.

How Does CoolSmooth® Work?

CoolSculpting freezes unwanted fat cells using a proprietary technology called cryolipolysis (“cryo,” to freeze; “lipolysis,” to break down fat). The CoolSmooth applicator uses the same breakthrough technology to provide the same amazing results*, but there are a few differences in the applicator itself. While traditional CoolSculpting involves the use of a two-paneled applicator that works best on pinchable fat, the CoolSmooth applicator is a flat handpiece that can be used to treat non-pinchable fat deposits and harder-to-reach areas.

Once the fat is “frozen,” the body naturally expels the dead fat cells over a period of two to three months, providing gradual results*. CoolSmooth involves no needles, no surgery, and no downtime, making it a popular option for people who want to maximize results* and minimize the recovery period. It’s also a great option for patients who are thinner or aren’t good candidates for liposuction.

What to Expect During CoolSmooth®

Depending on the areas being treated, CoolSmooth can take as little as one hour. You can relax, check email, or listen to music during the application. No pain medication is needed and there is no downtime afterwards, but you may experience slight swelling and sensitivity in the treatment area. Our CoolSmooth patients typically resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.

When Can I See Results* From CoolSmooth®?

Most patients start seeing a difference in the treatment area in as little as three weeks, with optimal results* appearing within two to three months, although results may vary. The most incredible part of CoolSmooth is that it actually kills the targeted fat cells, unlike diet and exercise which simply prompt fat cells to grow or shrink. To maintain your CoolSmooth results, follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Many people choose to enhance their results with CoolTone®, a muscle toning treatment that enhances muscle definition in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
