How It Works

CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA-cleared treatment that was developed by Harvard scientists. It uses a process called cryolipolysis to target and destroy fat cells underneath the skin by literally freezing them. Because fat cells, such as belly fat, are more sensitive to cold than other tissues, the fat cells freeze while surrounding tissues are unharmed. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally processed by the body, leaving treated areas slimmer.

We can use CoolSculpting to reduce distinct areas of fat just about anywhere it collects, including:

  • Abdomen, including a belly, love handles, or muffin top
  • Under the chin
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper back

If your main concern is a double chin (submental fat), KYBELLA® may be an effective, nonsurgical alternative to CoolSculpting.

Expertise with Injectables

Dr. Dominic Castellano uses the palette of cosmetic injectables with an impeccable attention to detail, improving each patient's appearance with a customized treatment plan. In the hands of a skilled injector, products such as BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, and Restylane® can minimize wrinkles and create attractive, natural-looking contours.

Your Injectable Options


Good candidates for CoolSculpting are women and men who meet the following criteria:

  • Want a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction
  • Have areas of unwanted fat
  • Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
  • Have good skin elasticity

While CoolSculpting is great for reducing fat, it doesn’t tighten lax skin. Patients who want to firm the neck may benefit from non-surgical ThermiTight® treatments.

Are you frustrated that no matter how healthy you eat, how much you exercise, you just can’t seem to be able to get rid of your muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch?*

Your CoolSculpting Procedure

We perform CoolSculpting as an office treatment in our private and comfortable CoolSculpting suite. Treatment of each area takes 1 hour. We begin the treatment by placing the appropriate-sized applicator over the targeted fat bulge. When the machine is activated, patients feel firm pressure, then intense cold for about 5 to 10 minutes until the area becomes numb.

Our CoolSculpting patients often spend their procedure time watching TV, reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. Once the treatment time is complete, the applicator is removed and another area may be treated if desired.

Since CoolSculpting does not involve anesthesia, incisions, or stitches, no downtime is needed after a treatment. It is normal to experience temporary side-effects, such as mild redness, bruising, tingling, numbness, or discomfort in treated areas.


Results appear gradually, as treated fat is naturally flushed out of your body. Our patients typically see improvement starting a few weeks after their treatment with most dramatic slimming between 1 to 3 months. Results last indefinitely when you continue your healthy habits.

Many patients get the results they want with just a single treatment. Others return for additional treatments or to treat other areas.
