It can be frustrating when a healthy diet and regular exercise routine do not reduce areas of persistent fat. That’s why CoolSculpting® has quickly become a popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment. We can treat those difficult areas such as the outer thighs with the CoolSmooth applicator in Paramus for our patients from Hackensack, Ridgewood, Mahwah, Somerset, and throughout New Jersey, who aren’t quite ready for more invasive procedures.

What’s the Difference Between CoolSmooth and CoolSculpting?

While CoolSculpting offers beautiful, impressive results, the system is limited to certain areas of the body that have deposits of “pinchable” fat—typically the abdomen, flanks, and hips. That’s where CoolSmooth comes in. CoolSmooth is a small, hand-held CoolSculpting applicator that can treat a wider selection of areas. Even if you are lean, we can use CoolSmooth to smooth out stubborn bulges on your:

  • Tummy
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Back

You’ll never use the words love-handles, muffin top, or bra rolls again.

How Does CoolSmooth Work?

Like CoolSculpting, the CoolSmooth applicator works by cooling fat to a specific temperature that triggers cell death, leaving surrounding tissue, skin, and muscles unharmed. The fat cells are then safely metabolized by the body, resulting in a noticeable decrease in fat in the treated area. While the technology is the same, the application is quite different. The CoolSmooth applicator is a flat, hand-held device that can treat harder-to-reach areas, such as the outer thighs (commonly known as the “saddlebags”).

What Can I Expect From a CoolSmooth Treatment?

CoolSmooth is noninvasive and no anesthesia or needle pricks are required. Treatment is relatively comfortable and typically takes between one to two hours, depending on the areas being treated. We will settle you in a comfortable recliner in our Paramus, NJ, office, where we will apply the CoolSmooth applicator to your trouble spot. During the first few minutes, you will experience a cold sensation until the treated area begins to go numb.

Most patients are pleased with their results after just 1 to 2 treatments, and your results will be long-lasting if you maintain a stable weight. The best part: treatment involves no needles, no scars, and no downtime, so you can get back to your life right away and watch as excess fat gradually comes off over the next few months.

How Much Does CoolSmooth Cost?

At our Paramus, New Jersey, practice, the price of CoolSmooth varies depending on your individual needs. During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and discuss your options. Once a treatment plan has been agreed upon, we will give you a specific fee quote for treatment. Be sure to review our financing options to find out you’re eligible for a little extra help!
