in Glenndale, MD
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
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.

CoolSculpting Cool Advantage & Dual Sculpting
Here at Callender Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, we offer Cool Advantage, Cool Petite, Cool Advantage Plus, Cool Smooth Pro and Cool Mini for our CoolSculpting treatments.
Cool Advantage is a new fat-freezing applicator that provides for more accurate delivery of cryolipolysis. This allows for a shorter treatment duration, 35 minutes per cycle versus the normal 1 hour.
The CoolAdvantage Petite™ Applicator treats upper arms safely and effectively.
The CoolSmooth Pro applicator was designed specifically to treat the thighs.
The CoolMini applicator was designed for non-invasive fat reduction treatment of smaller areas such as the neck.
Our practice also has two CoolSculpting devices, which allows us to practice DualSculpting. This is where two treatments are performed on each side of the body or in different areas. This can shorten treatment time, and it can also make for more noticeable results. If you are limited in time but still want the benefits of the CoolSculpting treatment, contact us today to take advantage of these new offerings!

Side Effects Of coolSculpting
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.

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
