Losing weight is one of the best ways for patients to improve their body image. For some people, however, there are stubborn areas of fat present around the abdomen that refuse to budge no matter how much exercise they do or the dietary restrictions they set for… Read More

The first step is to evaluate if Coolsculpting is right for you. A consultation at one of our convenient locations in Delaware and Maryland can be done to evaluate your history and determine if Coolsculpting would be right for you. Developed by Harvard scientists, Coolsculpting uses a unique, patented, clinically proven procedure that freezes fat cells without damage to your skin. An applicator is applied to the area of your concern and uses suction to draw up the area into the applicator. Then the freezing begins. Most clients feel very comfortable and relaxed during treatment. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq takes one hour per applicator. It is common for our patients to have multiple treatment areas done in one day. After Coolsculpting, you can resume all normal activities.
Coolmini – approved for treating submental (under the chin) fat. Also used to reduce bra fat and the area above the knee.
Coolcore – approved for treating smaller pockets of abdominal fat.
Coolcurve – approved for treating flanks (front and back).
Coolmax – approved for treating larger pockets of abdominal fat. With each applicator used, it treats twice the amount of one Coolcore applicator.
Coolsmooth – approved for treating outer thighs.
Coolsculpting is an FDA-cleared treatment to remove unwanted fat cells. Results can be seen in as few as four weeks and continue for up to three months. On average, you can expect to see a 20-25% reduction of fat per Coolsculpting treatment. Additional fat reduction can be achieved with additional treatments. Fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. Most people report that their clothes fit better and they feel better about themselves.
Cryolipolysis™ is the non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis (the breaking down of fat cells) to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. The scientific principles of cryolipolysis were discovered by Dermatologists Dieter Manstein, MD, Ph.D. and R. Rox Anderson, MD, of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
The physicians and their team conducted research that demonstrated that under carefully controlled conditions, subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. Their initial work, published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in November 2008, showed that exposure to cooling via energy extraction causes fat cell apoptosis (a natural, controlled cell death, which leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually eliminate the affected cells). Inflammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months after the procedure, reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed and eliminated, much like that of fat from food. Based on their research findings, the investigators concluded “prolonged, controlled local tissue cooling can induce selective fat cell reduction and subsequent loss of subcutaneous fat, without damaging the overlying skin.” This discovery, called “selective cryolipolysis,” led to the development of the patented technology behind the non-invasive CoolSculpting® Procedure.
Why the CoolSculpting Procedure Is Different
The CoolSculpting Procedure using cryolipolysis is fundamentally different from other non- or minimally invasive modalities. Other methods of fat removal primarily involve necrotic cell death by damaging fat with heat, high-intensity focused ultrasound or chemical injections. Each approach poses potential technical challenges, particularly with respect to targeting the right tissue depth and unintended damage to other structures close to or within the fat layer. The predictability of efficacy using these other techniques is also uncertain. In contrast, the CoolSculpting Procedure, using cryolipolysis, induces apoptosis only in fat cells to gently and gradually reduce the fat layer while preserving all other tissue.
How Non-Invasive Cryolipolysis Works
Precisely controlled cooling is applied through the skin to the fat layer. Cooling is maintained for a predetermined time period to damage the fat cells. Fat cells begin a natural removal process that continues for several months. The natural removal of fat cells over time results in gradual fat layer reduction.

How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost?
Coolsculpting cost varies greatly depending on a variety of criteria. Price is dependent on factors like the number of fats being treated, the exact techniques used will also impact cost and the amount of time required for the treatment. Please contact our office for more information.
