ZL Medspa

CoolSculpting is an innovative, FDA-approved process that slims, reshapes, and contours the body by freezing unwanted fat. The results can be long-lasting, as the treated fat cells are first destroyed and then are escorted out of the body as waste. The technology has been rigorously studied and is proven to be both safe and effective*. Best of all, CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia, no incisions, no recovery or downtime, and no discomfort.

Effortlessly melt away stubborn fat with no discomfort or downtime

ZL Medspa is excited to announce the latest addition of the CoolSculpting Elite, a brand new cutting-edge device that can treat up to 9 areas of the body. The newest applicators are designed to fit your curves' natural shape, and they come in 7 different shapes and sizes to accommodate your unique contours. Thanks to the CoolSculpting Elite technology, clients can now achieve remarkable fat loss results in far less time.

What is CoolSculpting Elite?

As the next big thing in fat loss technology, the CoolSculpting Elite is designed for maximum comfort with no downtime. The multi-shaped, curved applicators can target, freeze and remove fat bulges in 9 key areas of the body: the thighs and flanks, the upper arms and bra rolls, the banana rolls beneath the buttocks, the back, the belly, underneath the chin, and the jawline. The CoolSculpting Elite has two applicators on each machine instead of one, expediting your fat loss process so you can get in and out of the office faster than ever.

What is CoolSculpting Legacy?

Cryolipolysis is the scientific name for the fat-freezing mechanism that makes CoolSculpting such a compelling resource for clients who want to safely and non-invasively sculpt the body. Through cryolipolysis, fat cells are targeted for destruction, while the surrounding healthy cells are well preserved. The original Coolsculpting Legacy is among the most popular FDA-approved treatments in the world for trimming away the stubborn body fat that is so resistant to dieting and exercise. 

With CoolSculpting, you can read, rest, relax, watch tv or make phone calls while the painless panels target your trouble zones. After treatment, you can simply return to your normally scheduled routine.

Results Speak for Themselves.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Your body has a limited number of fat cells, and the number is set sometime during your teenage years. These fat cells merely enlarge and shrink as you gain or lose weight – they don’t leave. Reducing the total number of fat cells present in specific body areas means that even with some weight gain, fewer enlarged cells in the treated area and any weight will be more evenly distributed, rather than collecting in the treated area. Each CoolSculpting treatment reduces the number of fat cells by between 20 and 25 percent* – a significant change. Don’t worry about any health risk in losing some of your fat cells; your body has plenty to spare!

You may need more than one treatment to achieve your aesthetic goals. Our clients have been thrilled with the results of CoolSculpting. Finally, a painless, non-invasive way to reduce fatty deposits! No incisions and no recovery time means a stress-free and comfortable way to slim and trim your body.

In your private consultation at our CoolSculpting Tucson clinic, we will be happy to share our portfolio of before and after photos to know what to expect in terms of your results.

We are the only practice to address all of the factors. We don’t upsell you; it’s just included. We have been crafting our combination Triple T plan for over 5 years, getting each element down to an exact science, and we are excited to share the results with you!

ZL Medspa’s Triple Threat Treatment


The tightening process starts right away when we apply clinically studied Alastin Body Transform and send a full bottle home with you to keep improving the quality of your skin over time. Shortly after completing your first CoolSculpting session, we begin treating the skin with our innovative radiofrequency technology. These treatments are very comfortable and feel like a hot stone massage. The skin will grow thicker and tighter over the course of 6 months. Also, the treatment promotes lymphatic drainage, further helping your body clear away unwanted fat cells. 


Now that the fat is reduced, we’ll really be able to see a more defined physique. We use CoolTone to tone, strengthen and firm the area. The CoolTone treatment will supplement your gym efforts to get you to peak tone as fast as possible. The treatment will directly stimulate your muscles with electromagnetic energy. Since this treatment builds muscle tone, we use it to expedite fat reduction in your chosen areas. 


The CoolSculpting Elite is used for 2 sessions to freeze fat cells to the point of rupture. We use radial shockwaves to break up stubborn fat blocks further. 

How is the treatment performed?

We will mark on your treatment area our plan and pattern of applicator placement. This is only done by our Nurse Practitioner or board-certified plastic surgeon. You can feel confident that only adequately trained and licensed medical providers are leading your CoolSculpting treatment.

Immediately following your CoolSculpting Legacy or CoolSculpting Elite session, the area is treated with radial shockwaves. This was previously done through manual massage, but it was very uncomfortable for patients and yielded variable results. We use radial shockwaves to deliver energy deep into the connective tissues to increase circulation, destabilize fat structures, and promote skin tightening through collagen and elastin stimulation. This is very relaxing for patients and improves results significantly.

Am I a candidate?

If you have areas of unwanted fat that concern you and you’re unable to remove them through diet and exercise, then YES!

What kind of results can I expect?

Results may appear in as early as 4 weeks, but most dramatic results are usually visible after about three months.* Typically, 20% of the fat cells in the target area will be destroyed in each CoolSculpting treatment.*

Patients typically lose approximately 24% of the fat cells in the treated area. However, CoolSculpting is meant to contour the body and diminish the look of stubborn fat deposits to for a more sculpted figure. It is not a weight loss procedure, and those looking to lose a significant amount of weight may not be candidates for CoolSculpting.

What are the treatments like?

The most common areas we are asked to treat include fatty deposits that have lodged on the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, under chin, upper arms, upper back (bra fat), above the knees, or beneath the butt (banana roll), but this system can treat almost any area of the body with unsightly fat deposits.

Is there any downtime or side effects?

Side effects, if any, are usually mild and quickly resolve. You may notice some mild discomfort in the area, residual numbness, swelling, redness, or mild bruising. You have no restrictions following treatment, and most clients return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. At ZL, we use the latest version of CoolSculpting, the CoolSculpting Elite applicators and techniques to help minimize side effects and maximize results.

How long does a CoolSculpting Legacy or Elite session last?

One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting technology is that it can be completely customized to fit your unique body shape, treatment areas, and desired outcome. As such, the length of each session can vary. Sessions will typically last between 30 and 60 minutes, making it easy to fit into your schedule. Without harsh side effects or pain, CoolSculpting can even be completed during your lunch break.

How do I start the process?

To experience a more sculpted body contour, we make it easy for you. You can schedule an online appointment or call us directly. You will meet with Laura Zimmerman, Nurse Practitioner who will do a formal assessment and develop a treatment plan specifically for you. We recommend starting the process three months prior to an important event such as a wedding, reunion, party, or other gathering where you need to look at your absolute best.

What is the difference between coolsculpting and liposuction?

When many patients think of fat loss surgery, they think of liposuction. While liposuction is a popular and effective way to reduce fat, it is an invasive surgical procedure that involves small incisions and anesthesia, as well as some recovery time. While the results of liposuction can be a dramatic improvement in body shape, it is a more disruptive procedure than CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target fat cells with extreme cold. The cold temperature effectively kills the unwanted fat cells, without requiring any incisions or fat extraction techniques. After your fat cells die, your body naturally metabolizes the cell debris, and they are gone forever.

CoolSculpting is not a procedure with immediate results, as it takes time for the body to metabolize the fat cells. Patients will usually see results after four weeks, and then another noticeable change at two months. It takes about six months for the full results to be achieved, with many improvements along the way.

Is CoolSculpting painful?

CoolSculpting is not a painful procedure. Most patients report that there is very little discomfort. Some patients experience a slight amount of pressure and a cold sensation. You may experience mild discomfort, but most patients find the treatment so pleasant that they take a nap during the procedure.

Because CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, patients do not report a painful recovery process. Once the fat cells are frozen, your body metabolizes them naturally. This will happen as you are going about your daily activities and will not leave you feeling pain or discomfort during the process.

What happens during the CoolSculpting procedure?

At ZL MedAesthetics, our Nurse Practitioner, Laura Zimmerman, oversees all CoolSculpting procedures. She has over a decade of body contouring experience, and is a dedicated professional committed to producing excellent results.

The CoolSculpting procedure requires about one hour to perform. During this time, a cool gel pad is placed on the zone to be treated. Next, a CoolSculpting applicator is applied to the area. This device uses suction to access the fatty deposits beneath the skin, and it is normal to feel the sensation of pulling, although it is not painful or unpleasant. As the procedure continues, the cold temperature tends to numb the area.

After the CoolSculpting device has been used to treat the area, a massage is performed for several minutes to enhance results.

How long does a CoolSculpting session last?

One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting technology is that it can be completely customized to fit your unique body shape, treatment areas, and desired outcome. As such, the length of each session can vary. Sessions will typically last between 30 and 60 minutes, making it easy to fit into your schedule. Without harsh side effects or pain, CoolSculpting can even be completed during your lunch break.

Will I need multiple treatment sessions?

CoolSculpting is completely safe, so you can have multiple sessions to help you look and feel your best. You may need multiple treatments if you would like to treat several areas of the body or if you have a particular body area where stubborn fat is more prominent or bothersome. After your initial CoolSculpting treatment plan, you can also opt for additional treatments to maintain your contoured figure or alleviate fat deposits in other areas.

How much weight can I lose with CoolSculpting?

Patients typically lose approximately 24% of the fat cells in the treated area, which can result in a few pounds of weight loss. However, CoolSculpting is meant to contour the body and diminish the look of stubborn fat deposits to for a more sculpted figure. It is not a weight loss procedure, and those looking to lose a significant amount of weight may not be candidates for CoolSculpting.

When can I return to work after CoolSculpting?

There is little to no pain associated with CoolSculpting treatments. Without incisions or injections, this non-surgical procedure involves virtually no downtime. The lack of negative side effects will allow you to resume your daily routine right away, including work and exercise.
