CoolSculpting safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. It does not require surgery or downtime. The procedure is cleared by the FDA, safe, and effective.
Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin and Vein was a pioneer in the development of the CoolSculpting method of fat reduction, participating in the initial clinical research in 2008. The research from MDLSV played an important role in the FDA clearance process. As a result, there is now an easy way for men and women to reduce those unwanted fat bulges and look good from every angle.
Before and Afters
These are results from actual MDLSV patients.
- Non-invasive fat reduction
- Targets stubborn areas of fat
- Little to no downtime
- FDA approved for non-invasive fat reduction
- No general anesthesia
- No needles, injections, or cuts
- Treatments only 35 minutes
- Target multiple areas including abdomen, back, inner or outer thighs, and the chin (submental fat)
MDLSV offers DualSculpting treatments, an improved CoolSculpting technique that allows for two treatments to occur simultaneously. By using two CoolSculpting machines, each treating a different area of the body, patients who wish to target more than one problem area can finish treatments in half the time and target multiple areas of unwanted fat or stubborn bulges.
What happens during the CoolSulpting procedure?
Your physician directs the application of a specially designed applicator cup to the desired treatment area. When the procedure begins, you may feel a cooling sensation in the treated area, but little to no discomfort. During the procedure you can read, listen to music, work on a laptop, or simply relax. After the procedure, most patients can return to work or normal activities
Where does the fat go?
The exposure to cooling causes the fat cells to begin a process of natural removal, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The fat cells in the treated area are gently eliminated through your body’s natural metabolic process.
How long until I notice results from CoolSculpting?
You may notice results as soon as three weeks after your treatment, and will see optimal results by two months.* At that time, you and your doctor can meet to assess your cosmetic improvement and consider additional procedures as each one results in an incremental fat layer reduction. You may also want to consider procedures on other areas of your body.
How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need to see results?
In clinical trials, we saw that a single procedure can reduce up to 22% of the fat layer. We often see more now with the newer applicators. Two to four months after your CoolSculpting procedure, you and your doctor can assess your cosmetic improvement and consider additional procedures to achieve even greater fat layer reduction.
