If you ever wished you could melt away fat, then CoolSculpting non-surgical body contouring may be for you. With innovative technology, CoolSculpting helps our patients from Chelmsford and Worcester, Massachusetts, and beyond reduce fat around their midsections through a non-surgical procedure. Dr. Seth Kates or one of his medical associates can design a treatment plan for each individual, defining the areas around the waist, abdomen, back, and thighs that can be shaped using a fat-cooling device that leaves skin and muscle unharmed.

What is CoolSculpting?
Approved by the FDA and now in use in doctors' offices across the country, CoolScupting is a safe and effective way to reduce fat. The treatment "freezes" fat using a device that gently draws the skin and tissue up into a carefully monitored cooling area. The fat cells "die" off and are expelled gradually from the body through natural processes over a period of 3 weeks to 3 months. The result is a slimmer and more sculpted appearance.
Who can benefit from CoolSculpting?
The ideal patient is within 15 pounds of his or her ideal weight, wants clothes to fit better, and would like to look better at the beach. These candidates also desire a needle-free, non-invasive method for reducing stubborn pockets of fat with little to no downtime.
Before & After Photos
The CoolSculpting experience
Patients receive a treatment plan based on a careful evaluation at one of our cosmetic and medical dermatology offices in Massachusetts. One or several sessions may be scheduled depending on the number of areas to be treated. Each session lasts about an hour. A gel pad is applied to the treatment location, and the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to pull the targeted area into the cooling space. Patients feel some pressure and cold, but most find it easy to relax, sleep, read, listen to music, or watch a movie.
Recovery and results
Patients can return to routine activities immediately after treatment. The treated area may feel bruised, numb, or cold following the procedure, but this is normal and temporary. Patients can expect to achieve a 20 to 25% reduction of fat in the treated areas. Many are so satisfied that they quickly return for additional treatment.
As the results of your slimmer appearance gradually emerge, you will be amazed by how effective and easy CoolSculpting is!
