Charlotte’s Top CoolSculpting® Provider

If you have stubborn fat that you can’t seem to get rid of despite reaching your healthy weight, then CoolSculpting® may help you reach your goals. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that targets unwanted fat in specific areas.

The Skin Center is proud to offer CoolSculpting® to Charlotte-area residents who want a sleeker or more sculpted appearance.

You may have heard or read that you can’t spot-reduce fat through exercise or diet. We in the aesthetics field disagree! There are cosmetic procedures that do reduce fat from specific areas.

Naturally, each body has areas where it retains fat longer. Some may retain a little more than they prefer in the thighs, while others hold a little extra body fat in the tummy. Even reaching your ideal weight may still leave you with excess fat in one or more areas. CoolSculpting® effectively targets unwanted body fat without surgery.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-Cleared, nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that uses cooling to eliminate unwanted fat from those trouble spots—like the abdomen, love handles, bra roll, arms, legs, and even chins!

The technique is called “cryolipolysis,” which involves strategically applying cold to break down specific fat cells. Fat cells are especially susceptible to the effects of cold temperatures. So fat cells freeze, but skin and other tissue aren’t damaged.

How Does It Work?

Believe it or not, the cutting-edge technology of CoolSculpting® traces back to a popsicle, when a pair of Harvard University scientists observed how select children developed dimples due to eating popsicles.

The notion of cold sensations selectively decreasing and ultimately eliminating fat cells without causing damage to the skin or surrounding tissue led to Cryolipolysis®, the proven science and base foundation of CoolSculpting. The benefits of the treatment are:

    • Non-Surgical Fat Removal Procedure
    • Non-Invasive Alternative to Liposuction
    • CoolSculpting is Safe and Effective
    • FDA Cleared
    • CoolSculpting® Cost may be Lower Than Liposuction
    • Results unfold slowly over a few months, so no one needs to know if you don’t tell

What to Expect During CoolSculpting® Treatment

To begin your journey, you’ll meet with one of our expert CoolSculpting® Technicians, who have performed thousands of successful treatments. Together, we’ll assess your problem areas and goals for your new, slimmer silhouette.

During the treatment, the CoolSculpting® applicator is positioned on your body to apply controlled cooling. The targeted fat cells are then crystallized, then your body naturally processes the fat cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

One of the best parts about the procedure is that there is no downtime, and it is completely non-invasive – you can literally read a book, watch a movie, or take a nap while getting the treatment done! Following an easy 35-to 45-minute sculpting session, you can immediately go back to your routine while anticipating your amazing results!

Some people notice a cool sensation, tingling, and a pulling or tugging sensation during the procedure. It usually isn’t painful. Afterward, common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, tingling, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity.

Some notice a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat, depending on what area of the body is receiving treatment. There are potential rare but serious side effects. Talk with your provider to learn more as some risk factors may increase the likelihood of some of the side effects.

You won’t notice the results immediately. Your body releases the destroyed fat cells over the next few months. Results may take three to four months to emerge.

How Much Does Coolsculpting in Charlotte NC Cost?

The great thing about CoolSculpting® is that our certified providers can develop a customized treatment plan to coincide with your personal goals, your budget, and most importantly–your body; it is not a “one-size-fits-all” procedure.

Without an assessment, it is impossible to predict cost as it depends entirely on the number of treatments you need to reach your goals. Some people see the results they seek after just one treatment, while others may need additional treatment or to treat additional areas. A single treatment typically targets approximately 20% of the area’s fat cells.

The Skin Center offers payment options through CareCredit and Alphaeon, so we can work with almost anyone’s budget! The first step is scheduling your consultation appointment and asking about anticipated costs.

Is CoolSculpting® Right For Me?

Like every procedure, CoolSculpting® is perfect for some but not right for someone else. You may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting® if:

    • You are close to your goal weight – within 20 pounds
    • You don’t have any medical metal, electrical, or electronic implants in the area you wish to target. This includes hearing devices, cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, neurostimulators, or drug pumps
    • If you have any medical conditions, please talk with your provider. For example, if you have Graves’ disease or seizure disorders, your provider may want to proceed with caution and recommend other alternatives
    • The area you wish to treat is not swollen, infected, or inflamed

Always talk with your provider about any prescription or over-the-counter medications you are taking, as some may be contraindicated. Because we offer both non-surgical and surgical forms of fat reduction, we can suggest what treatment is best for you.

To determine whether you’re a good candidate or not, The Skin Center by CPS offers free consultations. During this consultation, our certified providers can evaluate you for this revolutionary treatment, answer any questions you may have, and ultimately tailor an individualized treatment plan for your unique weight and shape.
