This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting® involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.
Our Columbia, SC office is the only cosmetic dermatology provider in the surrounding area which also offers “Dual Sculpting,” a non-invasive procedure that eliminates unwanted fat cells in half the time by providing two machines working together for faster results.
Both offices in Columbia and Florence also offer “CoolMini™” submental fat reduction services for smaller areas of stubborn fat removal.

What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting®, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
