Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to questions you may have about the CoolSculpting® Procedure. If you have other questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Nicole today.


Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure?

The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. With our weight-loss program, we can ensure you get the optimum results.

"I had coolsculpting performed in a few areas of my body that I was having a hard time getting the results I wanted with diet and exercise. I was skeptical at first, but still decided to go ahead with it. I am so glad I did. I am loving the results! I notice a change in my trouble areas within 2 weeks. Nicole was amazing. Very professional and she made me feel comfortable. You can tell she loves what she does and sees coolsculpting as an art. I would definitely recommend coolsculpting to my friends and family." Thank you Nicole!



How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals.


How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?

We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. You may also schedule additional treatments or office visits in order to meet your goals.

"I recently started my coolsculpting journey with Nicole and have really enjoyed the experience. during the consultation process, she warmly welcomed me into the space and instantly put me at ease. She was friendly, knowledgeable, kind, and intentional about connecting with me to fully understand my health and overall goals. She was also a joy to work with in terms of scheduling and answering questions - she made the entire process a breeze! After completing a thorough assessment and providing her expert recommendations, I was excited to complete my first round of treatment. The process was painless and the time passed quickly thanks to a great space equipped with Netflix, a comfortable chair, and a warm, cozy blanket (a fun treat for a busy working mom)! Nicole then massaged the area with a Zimmer treatment, designed to help tone and tighten targeted areas to achieve optimal results. I look forward to seeing what I anticipate will be transformation results, and to completing coolsculpting treatments for additional areas!"

Can the CoolSculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges under the chin (double chin), thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), upper arms, and male chest.

"In less than 2 months after getting my first coolsculpting treatment on my lower abdomen I was able to move to the next notch in my belt. I’ve definitely noticed how differently my clothes fit me and even after a big meal my husband hugs me and says "you still feel really thin to me!". I’ve already scheduled another treatment with dr. Silva to focus on another area of my body. I'm sold on coolsculpting. It really does work!"

Where does that fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.

"I’ve been seeing dr. Silva for almost 5 years and thanks to her I feel like I’m reverse-aging. She is smart and helped in more ways to feel my best each and every day."



What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment. After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.

"My experience with Nicole Rothrock has been excellent! Nicole explained the entire coolsculpting process from beginning to end, how it works, what to expect, with utmost professionalism. She is a true pro with many years of experience. I have already seen results and am happy and impressed as the outcome is exactly as she promised. I would recommend Nicole to anyone contemplating coolsculpting"



What are the side effects?

During the procedure, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

"I have embattled this problematic bulge on my lower abs for years and was reluctant to get lipo due to the pain and downtime involved. Dr. Silva helped me to lose fat during my lunch breaks! Little to no downtime and I went from a size 6 to a size 4 dress pant within weeks of my first session! I am thrilled with the results, I might be addicted!"

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

"Very happy for her professional services, very friendly and informative. I will always seek her when coming to your office. Thanks so much Nicole!"
