It is a wonderful place to relax and be pampered and no matter which of the products or services you partake in, you are sure to leave the premises a more beautiful and radiant you.
At Urban Retreat, there are a variety of treatment options available – ranging from skincare treatments and manicures / pedicures to CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting? It may be an option for you, if want to accent your body’s contours or even just feel more comfortable in your clothes. It is specifically designed for those who have targeted areas of stubborn fat – such as abdomen, flanks, upper arm and under the chin. It’s not a weight-loss treatment and not designed for everyone.
CoolSculpting is a technology that is safe and non-invasive. It has been on the market for over 10 years. CoolSculpting applies a vacuum applicator to the treatment site, while initiating a controlled cooling causing the cell to undergo apoptosis and kills only those fat cells targeted. In the weeks following, the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells. Once those cells are gone this is permanent.
It takes three months to show the full effect of CoolSculpting, however many start to see results in as little as 2 weeks. CoolSculpting won’t change your weight. It works well to decrease superfluous fat (soft squishy tissue) as opposed to visceral fat that you can’t grab. Diet and exercise is the only method to decrease this. Although people on average will have a 20% decrease in fat cells per treatment area, more sessions may be required to achieve desired results.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will provide you with a customized treatment plan to meet your needs and expectations.
