SKIN MediSpa now offers the latest generation in Coolsculpting technology. This procedure is FDA-cleared for permanent fat destruction and contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat without the downtime! Coolsculpting® safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells! The treated fat cells are destroyed by the freezing process and your body gradually processes the fat, eliminating the dead cells, creating a more sculpted appearance. SKIN’s Coolsculpting procedure is customized to meet your own body shaping goals and can be used to reduce fat on multiple areas of the body.
• Destroy targeted fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise
• FDA-cleared to treat abdomen, back, inner and outer thighs, back of knees, flank (love handles), and “muffin top”
Despite popular opinion, fat reduction and weight loss are not the same things. When an individual loses weight, their current fat cells become smaller in size but the number of fat cells within their body remain the same. By the same token, weight gain causes the fat cells to increase in size. SKIN’s Coolsculpting procedure has the ability to reduce the number of fat cells found in the treated area. The fat cells destroyed by SKIN’s Coolsculpting are unable to be restored and therefore are not subject to the possibility of becoming larger with weight gain.
How does it work?
1. Despite a healthy diet and exercise, many individuals experience stubborn fat in difficult to target areas.
2. SKIN’s Coolsculpting technology utilizes controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target and destroy these fat cells.
3. These fat cells are then naturally eliminated from the body over the following weeks.
4. The treated fat cells are permanently destroyed.
Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with a SKIN specialist who will perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program. As the target area and number of required treatments varies from patient to patient, a price quote will be given during consultation.
During the first few minutes of the procedure, individuals note pressure and intense cold quickly dissipates. Patients remain comfortable throughout the procedure and resume normal activities directly following completion.
Following the Coolsculpting® procedure patients may experience redness, swelling, mild bruising, firmness of skin, tingling or temporary numbness in the treatment area. These symptoms are temporary and will resolve completely.
The process of eliminating the fat cells can take several months with the most dramatic results noted anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months. Your body will continue to flush out dead fat cells for up to four to six months following treatment.
The treated fat cells are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. These fat cells are not able to be restored or regenerated.
Stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise are a common problem for men and women of all ages. Many of our patients have tried everything, and even though they maintain a balanced diet and active lifestyle, they still find themselves unhappy with excess fat around the tummy, flanks, or midsection. If you want to eliminate unwanted fat without surgery and without downtime, revolutionary CoolSculpting technology could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

What is CoolSculpting?
Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting targets and freezes fat cells and allows your body to naturally eliminate them in the weeks and months that follow. Controlled cooling, known as Cryolipolysis, enables our CoolSculpting specialists to gently and effectively single out unwanted fat cells. These cells are safely crystallized, or frozen, which causes them to die. Over time, your body naturally processes and removes the dead cells, giving you a more sculpted, slimmer physique.
Most people see an undeniable reduction of fat after a single treatment, and additional sessions may further enhance results. You may start to see results as little as three weeks after treatment, though the most dramatic results tend to be apparent after about two months.
The procedure itself is safe, cool, and effective. During treatment, the device applies controlled cooling to the desired area of fat reduction while you simply lie back and relax. Many patients are so comfortable they enjoy reading, checking email, or even taking a nap during the procedure. Because the treatment is entirely non-surgical, patients are usually able to return to normal activities right away with no down time. More often than not, patients find that they are able to easily return to work right after their session is complete.
Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein, the two Harvard-affiliated doctors behind CoolSculpting technology, developed the treatment after paying close attention to a particular phenomenon known as “popsicle panniculitis.” For years, medical studies had produced conclusive evidence that the formation of dimples in some children could be linked to exposure to cold in the cheeks. Children who frequently consumed popsicles would chill and eliminate the fat cells closest to the points of suction, eventually causing indentations to form near the mouth.
Realizing the connection between cold and the loss of fat cells, Drs. Anderson and Manstein posited that a calculated application of very cold temperatures to unwanted pockets of fat throughout the body might produce a similar reduction. Through their extensive research, they soon discovered that nerves, skin, muscle and other body tissues were far less sensitive to cold temperatures than body fat. Because of this, they were able to determine the ideal temperature to maximize fat reduction without harming any of the other structures of the body.

The Best Candidates for CoolSculpting
The best CoolSculpting candidates are normal-weight men and women with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in certain areas. These are sometimes colloquially known as love handles, muffin top, spare tire, paunch, thunder thighs, flabby arms, and back fat or bra bulge. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. This is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a treatment to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise. Your age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger cosmetic surgery patient with tighter skin.
To be a good candidate for CoolSculpting, it’s important for you to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you. You need to understand that CoolSculpting can enhance your appearance and self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have this procedure, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them carefully with your provider.
