CoolSculpting® is a safe and effective non-surgical fat freezing treatment cleared by the FDA that delivers precisely controlled cooling below the surface of the skin to freeze and kill fat cells. It specifically targets those stubborn areas of fat pockets that won’t budge with diet and exercise.

We have three CoolSculpting® machines that allow us to treat multiple areas at the same time, as well as body-specific handpieces for treatments tailored to your body type.
As the name suggests, the CoolSculpting® procedure can be a little chilly. Controlled cooling is delivered via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat. Though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides within five to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, tugging, or mild pinching.
A gel pad is placed on the target site to protect your skin. Suction is used to draw the tissue into the applicator cup. The device then delivers controlled cooling to the treatment area. Your session can take between 35 minutes and one hour to complete, depending on the area(s)
being treated. Once the treatment is complete, the device will be removed, and the area will be massaged to maximize results.
Recovery and Results
After your treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising in the treated area. Total resolution of these symptoms usually takes a few days, but it may last a couple of weeks.
Numbness or tingling at the site is common, but these side effects should resolve within several weeks. Recovery time is minimal, and you are able to return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
On rare occasions, a small percentage of patients experience pain after the procedure. This sensation should subside within one to two weeks. However, our doctor can be reached for pain management options.
Many will see results as quickly as three weeks after treatment, but the most dramatic results typically appear within two to three months. The body will continue to process the fat cells for four to six months. CoolSculpting® can provide a reduction of fat by up to 20 to 25 percent.
*Client results are based on personal experience. Individual results may vary.
Fat reduction is different from weight loss. Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight. When you have a CoolSculpting® treatment, the fat cells freeze and start to die off. Following treatment, your body processes them and excretes them as waste. The best part about fat reduction is that fat cells are gone for good once they are removed from the body.
CoolSculpting® is not intended to help you lose weight. It is designed to reduce fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. The ideal candidate is a healthy man or woman who struggles to remove stubborn bulges such as belly fat, abdomen fat, love handles, double chins, upper arm fat, inner and outer thigh fat, and other fat deposits.
While CoolSculpting® is backed by scientific results, no medical procedure can ever be "guaranteed". There is a small percentage of patients that do not see results at all. However, out of the thousands of patients that we've treated with CoolSculpting®, the rate of satisfaction has been high, and patients are thrilled with their results. You may need more than one treatment, as some men and women require additional sessions to achieve their ideal body goals.
Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center is the best body contouring center in Washington state. We offer three body sculpting modalities—CoolSculpting®®, CoolTone™, and truSculpt® flex—because one size really doesn’t fit all.
truSculpt®flex is an FDA-approved Bio-electric Muscle Stimulation device (EMS) that is clinically proven to strengthen, firm, and tone the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
The muscle contractions induced by truSculpt® flex are deeper and more intense than a traditional workout, resulting in increased muscle mass, strength, and tone. truSculpt® flex can help patients achieve a flatter stomach, stronger thighs, tighter abs, and a lifted derrière.
CoolTone™ is a Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) device that is FDA cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm muscles in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
The electromagnetic energy emitted by CoolTone™ penetrates through the skin and fat layers to target only the muscles, inducing involuntary contractions. The body’s response to these contractions is to strengthen the muscle fibers, resulting in improved tone and strength.
Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center combines science and aesthetics to promote healthier, more beautiful skin. We specialize in proven and highly effective non-surgical treatments to help achieve your desired results.
We offer a full range of injectables, body contouring, laser treatments, light therapies, and beauty services and products. We look forward to meeting you.
