CoolSculpting Elite has been cleared by the FDA to effectively treat visible fat bulges in 9 different areas of the body. CoolSculpting Elite is safe and effective in reducing fat in these areas.

Safe and effective, Aurora Medical Spa St Louis CoolSculpting® is an FDA cleared procedure designed to freeze and permanently eliminate unwanted fat cells once and for all! By using targeted controlled cooling, CoolSculpting® is designed to remove pesky fat deposits from the area(s) of your body that refuse to respond to diet and exercise.

Virtually painless with minimal downtime, the CoolSculpting® procedure is safely performed with an applicator cup to increase direct tissue contact at a lower temperature. This keeps the surrounding tissues from becoming damaged. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they’re removed from the body through the body’s natural process. Taking as little as 30 – 45 minutes per targeted area, you can return to your regular activities after your treatment. Best of all, after your fat deposits are frozen, your results are permanent!

During your treatment, a gelpad or a gel and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum suction will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the treatment area.

You may feel intense cold or experience sensations of pulling, tingling, stinging, or cramping temporarily. These sensations typically subside within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many patients read or even take a nap during their sessions. Afterward, patients are usually able to return to normal activities.

Most clients experience very minimal downtime or side effects, and you should be able to return to normal daily activities following treatment. Some patients experience mild tenderness or numbness following their procedure. 

In most cases, you’ll need two or more treatment sessions to achieve desired results. We will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your goals to help you achieve your desired results!
Once your fat deposits are frozen and naturally removed from the body through the body’s natural process, your results are permanent! Although these fat cells are gone, we recommend maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise to prevent accumulating fat in more unwanted areas.
CoolSculpting® is a virtually painless procedure and involves little discomfort. Most patients experience an extreme cooling sensation in their targeted areas. After a few minutes, this area will be numb and most patients remain comfortable throughout their procedure.
Everybody is unique and so is every budget. That’s why your specialist will create a personalized treatment plan and pricing to address your area(s) of concern and help you achieve the look you desire.

Safe and effective, CoolTone technology uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to deliver virtually painless pulses of energy into targeted muscle layers, creating involuntary muscle contractions. Your body responds to these contractions by strengthening its muscle fibers, resulting in improved muscle tone. Over time, targeted muscle groups will become stronger, firmer, and more toned.

Although primarily designed to improve and strengthen your abdominal muscles, CoolTone can also be used to tone and firm your thighs and buttocks. Taking as little as 30 minutes per targeted area, you can return to your regular activities immediately following your treatment!

If you’ve been training but find it impossible to take your toned look to the next level, CoolTone treatments can help take your body to the next level of toning with virtually zero downtime. Non-surgical, non-invasive, and virtually painless procedure, CoolTone technology is designed to strengthen, firm and tone your stomach, buttocks, and thighs.

Benefits of CoolTone treatments include:

  • Safe, non-invasive, and FDA-cleared procedure
  • Virtually painless with minimal downtime time
  • Achieve more strengthened, firmed and toned muscles
  • Build more muscles mass through MMS
Most clients experience very minimal downtime or side effects, and you can return to your normal daily activities after your treatment. Some patients experience muscle soreness in their treatment area(s), like how you’d feel after an intense workout. However, these mild side effects are temporary, and will naturally heal on their own within a couple of days.

The number of treatments needed varies depending on your specific lifestyle, medical history, and goals. For optimal results, most people require 4 – 8 treatments, within a two-four week time frame. We also recommend followup treatments every month.

Results vary from person to person. However, most people begin to notice results immediately following their session. These results will continue to maximize over the next few weeks. Similar to muscle-building from exercise and weight training, increased muscle mass with CoolTone is not permanent. However, with a healthy diet and exercise, results can last for months.

A virtually painless procedure, patients experience muscle contractions during their treatment, which can lead to mild muscle pain following your procedure (similar to a strength-training exercise).

CoolSculpting is designed to freeze and eliminate fat, and CoolTone works to tone and strengthen muscles. When paired together, these innovative treatments can provide the transformational body contouring results you’ve been striving to achieve.
A safe, non-invasive FDA approved alternative to cosmetic surgery, Kybella™ is an injection of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical in your body. Perfect for anyone looking to get rid of their double chin once and for all, treatment injections cause a permanent breakdown of the fat cells in your chin area. During your treatment, tiny injections are made in your targeted chin area. Your injector will determine the number of injections you need, tailoring your procedure to your specific needs. Wait, won’t that hurt? For the most part, your injections are painless. However, some of our clients experience minimal, yet tolerable, discomfort during their treatments (similar to a stinging sensation).

Are you self conscious about your double chin? Do you feel like excess fat in your chin makes you look older? Kybella™ treatments are non-invasive injectable treatments designed to destroy fat cells in the treatment area to improve your profile and the contour of your chin.

Benefits of Kybella™ treatments include:

  • Elimination of mild to moderate double chin
  • Permanent results
  • Non-invasive, safe, effective alternative to cosmetic surgery
The most common side effects to Kybella™ injections include mild to moderate redness, swelling, bruising, or numbness around the targeted injection area(s). These side effects can last between 5 to 10 days after your procedure. After your treatment, you may feel sore for a day or so, but over-the-counter ibuprofen or acetaminophen will help to ensure your comfort (if needed) until your side effects naturally heal.
Depending on the amount of subdermal fat in your neck and chin area, patients can see results in as little as 2 to 4 treatments. For best results, Kybella™ injections are recommended every 4 weeks, for up to 6 total treatments.
Once you get rid of your double chin with Kybella™ injections, the fat cells are destroyed forever and your new chin will remain.
Our injections use a tiny needle and for the most part Kybella™ injections are painless. However, some of our clients experience a minor, tolerable sting. Your provider can apply a topical anesthetic or local anesthetic before your treatment to ensure your comfort.
Absolutely! Your Kybella™ treatments are the perfect complement to many other Aurora Medical Spa services, including dermal fillers and wrinkle reduction treatments!
