CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment using a process called cryolipolysis that selectively freezes stubborn fat cells, which then are naturally eliminated from your body. There are no needles, no special diets or supplements, no surgery, and most importantly, no downtime. It’s safe, FDA-cleared, effective, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
The ideal patients for CoolSculpting are those who are physically fit and are close to or at their ideal body weight with small areas of extra fat on their abdomen, back, love handles (or flanks), or thighs who wish to avoid a surgical procedure. While not FDA approved, other body areas such as arms and knees are potential treatment sites based on a thorough evaluation and patient education.
Heavier patients or those with significant skin laxity may be better candidates for liposuction or other forms of surgical body contouring, so it is important to be evaluated by a practice that can offer you the full spectrum of services (a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon).
We’re excited to offer the newly released, upgraded CoolSculpting handpieces! The “Cool Mini” is perfect for treating a double chin or that annoying fat that pokes out between your bra strap and arm pit. The “Cool Advantage” treats inner thighs, abdomen, or flanks, with decreased treatment times (now only 35 minutes per site!) and less discomfort and bruising.
We were one of the first practices in Colorado to offer CoolSculpting, and have a tremendous amount of experience evaluating and treating patients. We have added additional immediate post procedure treatments (Zimmer’s Z-Wave massage) to maximize results and decrease any discomfort, thus the “Plus”.
