What is coolsculpting and how does it work?
We have seen some amazing results in realistic patients that are committed. We also have a few patients that are better surgical candidates but for whatever reason they are unwilling or unable to have surgery. These patients can still have fat reduction but their skin quality is poor. But they understand the limitations prior to treatment. We are looking into adding a body skin tightening device after treatment with coolsculpting to see if we can improve the result even more. This radiofrequency device may also be able able to smooth out smaller fatty areas that are not treatable by coolsculpting or may have some ability to improve cellulite! We will have updates to our website over the late summer months!
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive way to permanently freeze the fat in a given area. It can take an hour to treat each area and can be used on the abdomen, flanks, double-chin area and others. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

The CoolSculpting Treatment
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses a process known as cryolipolysis to safely target unwanted fat cells. Cryolipolysis works by cooling a specific area (without damaging the skin) and lowering the temperature of the subcutaneous fat cells to the point where apoptosis, or normal and controlled cell death, happens naturally. These dead fat cells are then removed via the body’s lymphatic system in a gradual manner, which is why it can take a few months for the full effects of any treatment to become apparent; however, these dead fat cells are permanently eliminated and do not return.
Some of the primary reasons consumers choose CoolSculpting are because it is non-invasive, results in minimal downtime, and the fat cells it destroys are gone for good. The results of your CoolSculpting treatments, if combined with exercise and a proper diet, should last for a significant period of time, and we have seen promising long-term results with our patients. Please note that while CoolSculpting is safe, FDA approved, and one of the best options for non-surgical body sculpting, side effects do exist and should be discussed with your physician prior to any procedure being performed.
