Coolsculpting®

The Basics

With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, CoolSculpting is a proven, effective, and safe treatment for non-surgical fat reduction. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that is resistant to regular exercise and diet. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. At Entière Dermatology, we offer simulataneous CoolSculpting treatments and are able to treat multiple areas of the body including the abdomen, flanks, arms, legs, back, chest, and etc, in order to create the most customized treatment plan for your needs.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting delivers precisely controlled cooling temperature to gently but effectively target fat cells. The treated fat cells crystallize and die. Over time, your body will naturally eliminate these dead fat cells resulting in a more sculpted area.

What to Expect

At your consultation, we discuss whether CoolSculpting is the right treatment for you as opposed to liposuction, surgery, or other non-invasive body contouring procedures for the the best result.

  • If we determine that CoolSculpting is a treatment for you, we will create your individualized treatment plan depending on your body, goals, and budget.
  • We have the ability to treat two areas at once. We know you are busy so we cut down the time in half for you.
  • Within the first several minutes of the treatment, pressure and a cold feeling is normal and expected but this resolves quickly. Most of our patients are on their laptops and cellphones or even taking naps! We have you covered with Netflix and internet access.
  • It works over 3 weeks up to six months after treatment. A second treatment can be performed as early as four to six weeks after treatment.
