CoolSculpting® Non Surgical Fat Removal
Performed at our Avalon (Alpharetta, GA) & Phipps Plaza locations.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to get rid of excess, diet- and exercise-resistant fat, AYA Medical Spa’s new fat reduction technology CoolSculpting® may be the perfect solution. This technology externally emits cold temperatures to areas of unwanted fat to freeze and damage fat within cells, causing the body to eventually expel the fat. Some patients begin to notice results in about three weeks, while others notice full results after two months. Full results, which usually produce a twenty percent fat reduction with one treatment, can be seen after four to six months.
CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and does not require surgery, incisions, scars, compression garments, or even any downtime. In our private treatment room, patients can read a book, check email, or simply relax while receiving treatment. Patients are able to immediately return to normal activity directly after treatment.
While patients can be viable candidates for traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting® is a great non-surgical alternative to treat fat in areas like the abdomen, thighs, saddlebags, back, and love handles and is FDA cleared for fat reduction on the abdomen and flanks. To further improve fat reduction on the flanks, AYA also provides the specially designed CoolCurve+™ applicator with curved cooling plates. CoolCurve+™ allows a better fit that eliminates the potential for a gap between the regular CoolSculpting® applicator and the patient’s body.

CoolSculpting® Fat Reduction Frequently Asked Questions
How does CoolSculpting® eliminate fat?
CoolSculpting® uses Cryolipolysis™, a process that uses extreme cold to dispose of the fat through the body’s lymphatic system, to freeze the fat. The cold is applied externally to the areas of unwanted fat, damaging the fat within cells and causing the body to react. Due to the fact the fat is naturally expelled by the body, it may take a few weeks up to a few months for full results to be seen.
Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Anyone who has small amounts of unwanted fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise can undergo a CoolSculpting® treatment. However, it is important to schedule a consultation to discuss treatment plans as each patient’s problem areas vary.
What areas of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared to reduce fat on the flanks and abdomen, but it can be applied to most other areas of the body for men and women. Patients commonly receive this fat reduction treatment for small amounts of unwanted fat in the abdomen, thighs, saddlebags, hips, back, waist, buttocks, and knees.
Can CoolSculpting® be used to treat my double chin?
CoolSculpting® now offers a special CoolMini™ device specifically to treat the double chin. The device is applied under the neck for one hour. Patients can see dramatic improvements after as little as 1 – 3 CoolMini™ treatments. The CoolMini™ device can be used effectively on men and women of all ages and skin types.
What is the actual non surgical fat reduction treatment like?
During this non-invasive fat reduction treatment, while you may feel a bit cold, you will be able to relax, read, talk on the phone, or even email during your treatment that will last from one to three hours (depending on the amount of excess fat present and the size of the treatment area). After your treatment, you will be able to immediately return to your normal activities. Some patients do experience redness and occasional bruising of the treatment area.
How does the CoolCurve+™ applicator improve results?
The unique CoolCurve+™ applicator provides an enhanced curvature to fit patients’ natural curves for improved tissue draw. The specially designed curve of this applicator allows for better placement and fit on curved or narrow parts of the body such as the flanks, inner thighs, and the bra area.
How long will it take my CoolSculpting® results to be fully present?
Although you may start to notice a slimmer silhouette in just three weeks after your treatment, you’ll continue to see refinement for four to six months after your treatment.
Are multiple fat reduction treatments necessary?
CoolSculpting® patients notice, on average, a twenty to forty percent fat reduction with one treatment once full results are present. While multiple treatments are not necessary, many patients do pursue an additional treatment to maximize results.
