At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to helping individuals achieve the results they desire and offer a variety of treatments including CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved method to get rid of stubborn fat. It is a non-surgical fat-freezing procedure that uses controlled cooling. CoolSculpting was originally conceived by scientists at Harvard University, when they realized that some children eating Popsicles got dimples. This led them to discover that the cold temperature was freezing and eliminating fat cells.
CoolSculpting is based on the science that developed from this observation, called cryolipolysis. Your fat cells are targeted with precisely controlled cooling. The cells crystallize, then die. Your body naturally processes these dead cells and eliminates them from the body.
Advantages of CoolSculpting
- Safe – It was studied in more than 5,500 clinical trial patients. It has been performed over three million times worldwide. The CoolSculpting applicators are the only cooling system with built-in safety measures. The device will shut down automatically if it senses that skin is becoming too cold.
- Non-invasive – There is no anesthesia necessary. No needles are used.
- No down-time.
We believe in treating each patient as an individual. We will tailor a treatment plan to your lifestyle and your body sculpting goals. This includes the areas that CoolSculpting will target. We will get you results you love!
