Freeze Away Fat
It comes down to science. 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. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the CoolSculpting device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check emails, or even take a nap.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your CoolSculpting procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror, and long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.
Results and patient experience may vary.
See What Out Patients Are Saying!
“I have to admit… I could become an aesthetic junkie! There are so many things I wish I could do Silk Touch Med Spa. My husband and I were so impressed with Dr. Kerr and his new partner, Dr. Epperson, and all the staff. I would highly recommend Silk Touch to anyone and will! The whole experience was extremely calming and pleasant. Thank you so much for all you did to help facilitate a long time desired result.” – Marcene, April 2017

Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Liposuction will get you the best results, hands down. We also offer this procedure at our office for those who are looking for guaranteed results with fat loss or more body sculpting. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine which procedure is right for you. Consultations are free of charge.
What Does CoolSculpting Feel Like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment! Our goal at Silk Touch Med Spa is to make the CoolSculpting treatment as comfortable as possible for you.
How Long is Each Session? How Many Sessions Will I Need?
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
Are CoolSculpting Results Permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
When Will I See Results from CoolSculpting?
You may start to see changes from CoolSculpting as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
If you are looking for more instant fat loss results, LipoSculpture (our liposuction procedure) may be a better fit for you. Liposuction can also be done on any area of the body and allows Dr. Kerr to sculpt the body remove stubborn fat permanently in just one treatment. Learn more here.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. At Silk Touch Med Spa we will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. We invite you to come in for a FREE consultation for your custom treatment plan.
What are the Risks with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a popular, safe, non-invasive method of fat reduction with little risk and few side effects when compared to liposuction. Patients feel a pinching sensation where the cooling panels pull the skin, but that is followed by intense cooling that passes as the skin in the area becomes numb. It is normal for patients to experience some numbness or loss of sensation in the treatment area for up to a month.
These are the other risks/side effects with CoolSculpting. All of these pass quickly:
- Pinching sensation
- Minor swelling
- Stinging, tingling
- Skin sensitivity
- Mild to moderate pain
- Muscle cramping
Some people have some diarrhea as the body flushes the dead fat cells from the system. If you have CoolSculpting done on a double chin, there can be a feeling of fullness in the throat after treatment.
Do I Need to do Anything Before my CoolSculpting Appointment?
CoolSculpting doesn’t really require any preparation. But it’s a good idea to dress in loose fitting clothes, with easy access to the treatment area. Just to avoid any discomfort, have only a light meal before your treatment. If you have a cut or bruise on the treatment area, you should postpone your session until it has healed.
What Areas of the Body Can I Treat with CoolSculpting?
The FDA has approved CoolSculpting to freeze and eliminate fat in these areas:
- Back fat
- Bra line fat
- Underneath the buttocks
- Double chin
Can I Return to Normal Activities After My CoolSculpting Treatment?
Yes! Absolutely. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over. This is a great lunch-time procedure.
What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of CoolSculpting?
Like any procedure, there are some advantages and disadvantages to CoolSculpting:
- No incisions, stitches, or scarring
- No recovery time
- No preparation required
- Removes 20 to 25% of the fat in the treated areas
- Can be used on many different areas of the body
- Weight loss is gradual
- Treatment areas can be targeted and controlled with different attachments
- Once an area is treated, if treated again, the same level of fat reduction is not achieved
- Patients cannot lose large amounts of weight (you cannot do so with liposuction, either)
- Some patients would like the fat removal to be instant (as in liposuction)
- Cannot remove the same degree of fat in treatment areas (when compared with liposuction)
- Cooling sensation is unpleasant to some people
What Happens if I Gain Weight in the Future?
If you do gain weight you will gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the areas you have treated with CoolSculpting. But, once most patients see their new slimmer contour after their CoolSculpting sessions, they adopt a new healthier combination of diet and exercise.
