Everyone, no matter how much they exercise or watch what they eat, has pockets of fat that are as stubborn as a two-year-old in the midst of a tantrum. You can be at your ideal weight yet those pockets refuse to move on. You know where they are — the abdomen, thighs, even your bra line. But you can put the deep freeze on that unwanted fat with CoolSculpting at Callender Dermatology and Cosmetic Center. No scalpels. No needles. CoolSculpting in completely non-invasive and FDA approved. And the fat cells it removes are gone for good.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting was developed by a pair of Harvard scientists originally studying the effect of eating popsicles on the development of dimples in children. It turned out the cold killed the fat cells and created dimples, which appear when there is an absence of fat in the cheeks. From there, the scientists decided to apply the same thinking to fat pockets in adults. CoolSculpting was the result.
The concept behind CoolSculpting is simple — fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other tissue cells, so deliver controlled freezing into targeted fat pockets and kill the fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. This freezing crystallizes 20 to 25 percent of the fat cells in the treated area. Those cells die and are flushed from the body naturally.
Candidates For Fat-Freezing Treatments
The FDA has approved CoolSculpting to freeze and eliminate up to a quarter of the fat in these areas:
- Double chin
- Back fat
- Bra line fat
- Underneath the buttocks
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

How does CoolSculpting work?
In a CoolSculpting session, a member of our team positions the CoolSculpting panels over the treatment area. The panels then deliver light suction to the skin and underlying tissue, drawing the skin and underlying fat up between two cooling panels. Next, the temperature is set to the freezing point of the fat cells, and this controlled degree of cooling is delivered into the tissue between the panels. The fat cells are crystallized and gradually die, and the body flushes them away using the lymphatic system. Once those fat cells are gone, the remaining fat cells condense into a thinner fat layer.We repeat this process several times across the target area to cover it entirely. All in all, a session takes from one to three hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.
What does Non-Surgical Fat Reduction feel like?
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
CoolSculpting is totally non-invasive. As the skin is drawn up between the cooling panels there is a slight pulling sensation. Once the cooling is applied you will feel a few minutes of intense cold. Most people don’t equate this with pain, and the sensation passes as the area becomes numb for the remainder of the application to that area. The procedure doesn’t demand any action on your part; our patients read, watch videos, work on their laptops, or even take a nap during their sessions.

CoolSculpting Patient Testimonial
Review for Callender Dermatology and Cosmetic Center: Although I’m a long-time customer of Callender Cosmetic Center, this was my first experience with Cool Sculpt. I was very nervous about the procedure but Keisha and the PA were great. They made sure I was comfortable and checked in on me frequently. This is an excellent Dermatology/Cosmetic Center, I highly recommend this practice, they are very professional, but also very kind & caring with their patients. – Jenelle
