SKINSMART WAS THE FIRST PRACTICE IN SW FLORIDA TO OFFER COOLSCULPTING®
Freeze The Fat Easily And With No Downtime
CoolSculpting can target hard-to-remove fat areas such as love handles, belly fat, inner and outer thigh area and now UNDER THE CHIN! There is no downtime, no needles, no pain! You can read a book, check your email, or listen to music during your CoolSculpting treatment!
Request a cosmetic consultation with our certified CoolSculpting practitioner, Angie, or call our office in Sarasota at (941) 308-7546 to inquire about this or any of our other services. When you visit, ask us why certification can make a huge difference in your CoolSculpting results!
You may have heard of this non-invasive procedure to gently “freeze the fat” away in targeted areas of the body. This innovative treatment, CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ®, is available at SkinSmart Dermatology® in Sarasota — and we were the FIRST medical facility in SW Florida to offer this procedure. We are also a CERTIFIED CoolSculpting facility. Not all CoolSculpting practitioners are the same and the success of your results will depend on the skill and expertise provided by the person performing your treatment.
CoolSculpting can be used to reduce surface fat in the abdominal area including the tummy, back, inner and outer thighs, under the chin and “love handles”. During your cosmetic consultation, we will examine the areas you’d like to reduce and determine whether you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. While you are here, feel free to ask about our other non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments.
How it Works
The science behind the CoolSculpting procedure, Cryolipolysis™, was developed by world-renowned dermatologists from Harvard Medical School. Their research showed that fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissues, and that fat cells can be safely eliminated without harming the overlying skin. This scientific discovery led to the development of non-invasive CoolSculpting technology.
CoolSculpting treatments are performed with a non-invasive applicator that uses gentle vacuum pressure to draw tissue between two cooling panels. The device delivers precisely controlled cooling to targeted fat cells, crystallizing them without harming the surrounding tissues.
The CoolSculpting procedure is comfortable for most patients. No anesthesia or pain medicine is required. Typically, patients are comfortable enough to read, work on their laptop, listen to music or just relax and fall asleep during the procedure. We offer Wi-Fi while patients relax in a private room during treatment. Each area is typically treated for an hour, so treating the “love handles” requires a total of 2 hours.
Recovery & Results
After just one treatment, many patients see noticeable fat reduction. Treated areas continue to improve for two to four months as the body gets rid of the crystallized fat cells. Because treated fat cells are eliminated you can maintain your results by continuing a healthy diet and exercise routine.
