If you can pinch it, you can freeze it.Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.

Coolsculpting is an excellent way to freeze an area of fat and reduce it by 20 percent. The new coolfit applicator has been used in these ways to reduce inner thigh fat and upper arms. Coolsculpting will not tighten the skin. I have had excellent results using Coolsculpting to first reduce the fat and then Thermage to tighten the skin. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Coolsculpting for the best results.
