The Skinny on Eliminating Fat Cells CoolSculpting | Body Contouring in Lawrence, KS

With the freezing temperatures of winter and a new year on the horizon, we all have some goals in mind for the coming year. If you’ve been hitting the home gym hard this year and still have areas of stubborn fat, you should consider a body contouring CoolSculpting treatment. You might be thinking, why would I do a treatment if I can just work even harder at the gym? Well, there are a couple reasons.

First, the gym doesn’t let you target specific areas for fat reduction. You can choose exercises to target certain muscles, but we all know that some fat is going to stick with you no matter what (we’re looking at you lower belly fat 👀). 

Second, CoolSculpting actually kills fat cells. Yes. They will be eliminated

Exercise for fat reduction makes fat cells smaller, but it doesn’t actually eliminate them. 

With both of these methods of fat reduction, it’s important to note that the best results are combined with a healthy lifestyle. The most important thing to remember about CoolSculpting? It allows you to target the specific area of unwanted fat to eliminate fat cells.

At S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence, we’re a leader in the aesthetics industry and extremely proud of it. We are #1 in the Lawrence Area for CoolSculpting. We have the experience, results, and reviews to provide relevant information for those seeking information about body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting.

What is non-surgical body contouring? 

To contour means to mold something into an ideal shape. This principle is a foundation of makeup artistry, drawing, painting, and anything else that depicts the beauty of the human form. What if you could sculpt the contours of your body strategically, the way an artist does to a figure? You can with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting, also known as Cryolipolysis, is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that kills fat cells permanently to contour and sculpt the silhouette of your body. At S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence, our clients usually see a 20-25% reduction of unwanted fat in the treatment areas. 

CoolSculpting works best in combination with a healthy lifestyle, including a well balanced diet and regular exercise.

Non-Invasive Body Contouring: CoolSculpting Treatment Process 

There are a few steps to the body contouring process with CoolSculpting. Below we will walk you through the procedure from start to finish.


Before any treatment at S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence, we always make sure to have a thorough consultation with each client. You will have a discussion with an S. Thetics Med Spa Lawrence professional about your areas of concern. We will also measure and examine you to evaluate if CoolSculpting is right for you. 

Targeted Placement

Our CoolSculpting specialist will mark and measure the areas of unwanted fat on your body. This is so our specialist can determine the best CoolSculpting instrument and treatment plan for you. 

Skin Prep

The CoolSculpting specialist will apply a thin layer of gel to the target area for your protection, safety, and comfort. Then, the CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the target area and the process begins.

During Treatment

The CoolSculpting instrument will use gentle suction on the treatment area. The specialist will then place cooling panels to isolate and target the area of unwanted fat.

ZWave Application

Once the specialist removes the CoolSculpting applicator, the Zwave acoustic wave technology is used to break up the frozen fat cells. We do not charge for this additional treatment; we perform a Zwave application to maximize your body contouring results.

Non-Surgical Body Contouring Frequently Asked Questions

We know with any procedure that clients have a lot of questions. That’s great! It’s always important to be informed. We’re here to cover some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our CoolSculpting treatment. 

Do you lose weight when you do CoolSculpting?

Fat reduction and weight loss are closely related, but with CoolSculpting they do not affect each other. Just like you can have weight loss from water weight, or gain weight with gaining muscle, CoolSculpting results are not measured by the number on the scale but instead by the visual results.

CoolSculpting by itself is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it’s added support to clients with stubborn areas of fat. If you have a healthy diet and exercise regimen and still have certain areas you want to reduce, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting to refine your figure. It is not a treatment for obesity. 

How many inches can you lose with CoolSculpting?

As you can see from our CoolSculpting before and after results gallery, clients can lose a few inches with CoolSculpting. We take measurements before and after your treatment, so you will be able to see for yourself! As with any body contouring treatment, patient results and numbers will vary. The best results from CoolSculpting are in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.

How effective is CoolSculpting?

Body contouring through CoolSculpting is incredibly effective. This is because it literally freezes and kills the fat cells within your body. Through normal diet and exercise our fat cells may shrink, but they can also expand and come back. 

When a fat cell is eliminated from the body, it is not replaced. Your body will naturally process the dead cells after the treatment and reveal a contoured, sculpted silhouette. At S. Thetics Med Spa of Lawrence, we see on average a 25% reduction of unwanted fat in treatment areas.

Does CoolSculpting work on belly fat?

Absolutely! CoolSculpting belly fat is one of the most popular treatment areas for our clients. Since regular diet and exercise doesn’t allow you to target specific areas, an often stubborn area like the abdomen is a great spot for CoolSculpting.

Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

How long does CoolSculpting take to see results?

CoolSculpting procedure results can appear as early as the first month after treatment. Peak results can be seen four months after treatment. Believe us, it is worth the wait!

Is CoolSculpting worth the money?

Since everyone’s concerns and goals are so unique, it’s a personal preference for our clients. If you are combining this body contouring treatment with a healthy lifestyle and are looking for a confidence boost, this treatment can get you there!
