CoolSculpting

Many of our patients are troubled by stubborn body fat. Despite changes in diet or exercise, they are unable to achieve their ideal body shape. Our doctor often recommends CoolSculpting to individuals who are looking for a non-invasive form of body contouring. This revolutionary treatment uses very cold temperatures to destroy fat beneath the skin. CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime afterwards. Effective results coupled with a no-hassle procedure have helped CoolSculpting become one of the most popular body contouring treatments available today.

Treatment Areas

CoolSculpting can be used to treat excess fat on many different parts of the body, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks or love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting uses a technology called CryolipolysisTM to safely kill unwanted fat cells in areas where fat has accumulated. A CoolSculpting session lasts about 2 hours and does not require any anesthesia. At the beginning of the session, our doctor positions the cooling applicator above the targeted area. The skin is then drawn into the applicator and the cooling process begins. During the treatment, it’s normal to feel a cold sensation, but most people do not find it painful or uncomfortable.

Recovery

There is no downtime required after CoolSculpting. Patients may experience some redness, bruising, and sensitivity in the treatment area, but this should not restrict them from resuming normal activities.

Results

In the weeks following the procedure, your body will naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells, which reduces the thickness of the fat layer in the targeted area. Most patients begin to see results in just three weeks, with most dramatic results seen after two months. Fat will continue to be flushed from the body for up to four months. As the fat disappears, you will see the new contour of your body. Additional treatments can be performed until the desired result is achieved.

Candidates

CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment that is appropriate for individuals with isolated areas of fat who are close to their ideal body weight. CoolSculpting should not be used for weight loss or as a treatment for obesity. Our doctor takes the time to ensure that her patients understand what can be achieved with CoolSculpting so they will have realistic expectations for the treatment.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

Overall excellent service. Friendly front desk staff. A very small suggestion would be to have someone immediately identify themselves as the person to register a new patient and direct where to go when someone enters the waiting room. With a big waiting room and three people at the front desk, it is a lot to take in and not know to whom to speak. Having had negative experiences with doctors' receptionists where all three of the three people at the front desk have ignored me until I called out and forced a response, I am sensitive to the issue and imagine others have had this experience as well.

#12011-01-31 10:42:48

I can't think of anything at this time.

#22017-01-04

receptioist is a little stiff and unwelcoming, but attentive proffessional.

#32017-06-01

Magazines in the examining room to read while I waited for the doctor (I get bored easily).

#42017-09-26

There is a problem with availability of parking during busy week days.

#52017-08-26

Please send out paperwork in advance for pediatric patients

#62016-12-22

This was my very first visit; as a result, some of the questions above jump the gun a bit. However, the initial visit was a pleasant experience.

#72017-04-08

very satisfied

Just continue to be as thorough and caring as my experience today. Quite like a breath of fresh air!
