If you have stubborn, unwanted fat that won’t go away regardless of your commitment to a diet and exercise regimen, you are not alone. For a long time, liposuction was the only option, but now there are CoolSculpting and CoolMini – treatments that are non-invasive and just as effective.

CoolSculpting/CoolMini are also known as “cryolipolysis” or “fat freezing.” CoolSculpting has been FDA-approved for use since 2010. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that CoolSculpting is “effective, safe and easy” and that “[CoolSculpting] can produce results comparable to those of liposuction.”

CoolSculpting is used for larger areas of the body such as the back, hips (“love handles”) and abdomen. CoolMini works on the chin, arms, knees, and other smaller areas. CoolSculpting/CoolMini do not damage the surrounding skin cells or other body tissues, there are virtually no side effects, and the results are comparable to traditional liposuction with none of the associated discomfort.

CoolSculpting or CoolMini are simple procedures that are performed in the safety and comfort of our office. After a consultation with one of our medical professionals to determine if it is the appropriate treatment, you will relax in a comfortable chair. Your provider will use a special cooling suction device and apply it to the areas of your body where you want to remove stubborn fat. No anesthesia is needed because the cooling action of the device prevents any pain or discomfort. All you will feel is a cooling sensation as the fat cells are being destroyed.

Do CoolSculpting and CoolMini work? Full results take some time to appear – on average, about two to four months. But there is no downtime with CoolSculpting/CoolMini – You can return to your normal activities right after your session.

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution; rather, it is specifically intended to reduce pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Over the years, I have been going to see Nikki for facials. I have expressed my frustrations to her about areas of my body that I have been working on to sculpt through diet, exercise, and some procedures, with little to no results.

Because I trust Nikki I decide to take the plunge or should I say, take the “FREEZE” with CoolSculpting starting last August. I did my right thigh and my two shanks. To my amazement the results were amazing and permanent! I was so happy I continued on this journey to get my perfect body with additional applications to my shanks and both my thighs. I have just completed my last treatment of my right thigh to even it out to match my left thigh.

Coolsculpting really complemented my lifestyle – no down time and minimal to no discomfort with results showing in as little as a month. The main reason I would recommend this procedure is because there is no risk…. It is a non-invasive procedure. And of course, the results!

CoolSculpting is a popular treatment at FAC and claims one of our highest satisfaction rates. Our patients are not alone: CoolSculpting has catapulted to become the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction treatment. Now, FAC is pleased to announce the addition of CoolMini, the newest member of the CoolSculpting family.

CoolMini is just that: CoolSculpting delivered via a smaller applicator to help reduce the chin fat that causes the dreaded “double chin.” CoolMini works the same way as CoolSculpting. When applied under your chin, it permanently freezes away fat cells. Most patients report results in just one or two visits. And with CoolMini, there is:

• No surgery
• No needles
• No downtime
• No discomfort

One of the top misconceptions about a double chin is that it is present only in people who are overweight. The reality is that you can be rail thin and still have a double chin because genetics and age play a significant role in the presence of chin fat.
