In late August I began my CoolSculpting journey. I was looking for a non-invasive way to lose stubborn belly fat in my abdomen and “love handles” area. I was very fortunate to connect with the Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery – Dr. Kendall Peters (CPRS) in Orlando for CoolSculpting treatments. The staff has been amazing and I’m excited to share an update on my CoolSculpting stomach results, and they’ve generously offered a reader giveaway, so keep reading for details!
This is a partnered post. All opinions are my own.
CoolSculpting Stomach Update
For a refresher, CoolSculpting treatments consist of fat-freezing technology that’s nonsurgical, and scientifically proven to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots in as little as one session.* CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to treat 9 different areas of the body: visible bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms.
Two weeks ago I went back to CPRS for the second CoolSculpting stomach session (flanks/love handles). The procedure went as smoothly as the first time, and I recovered even quicker than before. I was sore for less time and the numbness around my stomach went away faster too. I was even able to volunteer at a food bank (loading and unloading food pantry boxes) the following day. Many patients have reported returning to work the same day following a CoolSculpting treatment. As a busy mom – this was exactly the right treatment for me because I can’t afford downtime with our hectic family schedule.

CoolSculpting session #2 for the love handles! Last night I demonstrated the CoolSculpting process for a fun Fill & Flatten event at @dr.kendallpeters! #ad #cprscoolsculpting I can’t wait to see the results and have that last bit of stubborn fat disappear from my belly area. Yes – it freezes those fat cells so they are gone forever! The best part is it’s non-surgical so I took the boys to school this am & have volunteer plans at a food bank this afternoon. ?? . . . #coolsculpting #nonsurgical #medspa #orlando #metime #boymom #cprs
*Patients can see up to 20-25% reduction in fat layer thickness after a single session. Results may be seen as early as 1 to 3 months after treatment.
I am seven weeks post a single treatment in my abdomen and two treatments on my flanks. At first, I found myself staring at the treatment areas every day willing the results to show up faster – don’t do that – it will just drive you batty. LOL! Instead, I practiced patience and within the past week or so, I’ve noticed not only visible results but my pants are looser and when I wear a dress I’ve noticed a slimmer waistline. I’m excited to see the full results once the twelve weeks are completed! I have one additional treatment at CPRS for my abdomen area next month, so I look forward to updating everyone once that’s complete.

Are you in need of a spa day? ’Tis the season for all things PUMPKIN! Did you know that pumpkin actually contains vitamins and antioxidants that are beneficial to the skin such as Vitamins A, C, and E? The pumpkin enzyme-based facial helps to gently exfoliate the skin and encourage cellular turnover with a mild lactic acid cocktail. It is then followed by extractions, skin analysis, a pumpkin masque, as well as a foot, hand, and facial massage with essential oils.
Combine your facial with Dermaplaning for that extra oomph and a great way to remove Vellus hair (aka peach fuzz)! For the months of October and November, CPRS has a promotion running where if you book a Pumpkin Enzyme Facial for $120, you receive a complimentary derma planing treatment! ($50 value)!
