Blast Your Fat Away This Holiday Season

December 10, 2020

Let’s face it, the “quarantine fifteen” compounded with a little holiday pudge has no one

feeling their best. Whether it’s that pesky muffin-top, a double chin, or saddle bags,

we’ve all been told by fitness and health experts time and time again that spot reduction

through diet and exercise is merely a myth. Sigh. While it is true that one cannot work a

muscle group to burn fat in a specific area, Dermatology Consultants may be able to

help rid you of those stubborn problem areas.


Introducing CoolSculpting

Enter CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat reduction

procedure that gently and effectively freezes fat cells away, while leaving the skin and

surrounding tissue unharmed. Cryolipolysis, the scientific process behind CoolSculpting

was first discovered by Harvard scientists in the early 2000’s. After observing fat loss in

the cheeks of children who were frequent popsicle eaters, they applied the same

principal toward fat loss in other parts of the body. Viola – CoolSculpting.


Take it from the Experts

Dermatology Consultants is among the first and longest running providers of

CoolSculpting in Georgia with several awards of recognition for our treatments. On

average, the procedure is expected to reduce the fat cells in the treated area by 20%.

Though it can take two-four months to see the full results, they have proven to be longlasting.

The treatment is approved for 9 different problem areas: double chin/under the

jawline, back fat, upper arms, flanks, the abdomen, thighs and under the buttocks.


How it Works

Each treatment can take as little a 30 minutes with minimal recovery time post-procedure.

At our facility, we offer dual sculpting which allows us to treat multiple areas

simultaneously and decrease procedure time. Patients frequently read, listen to music,

or even work as the treatment is underway.


First, the healthcare provider will apply a gel pad and applicator that looks like the

nozzle of a vacuum cleaner to targeted area. The applicator is then moved over body as

it uses suction to deliver controlled cooling. After the procedure, the provider will

massage the treated area to break-up any frozen deep tissue and help your body begin

to absorb the destroyed fat cells. Patients are instructed to massage the treated area in

the months after the procedure. In the subsequent months, the destroyed fat cells are

organically filtered out as waste through the lymphatic system.


Dermatology Consultants recommends several topical products to use before and after

treatment, including Revision Skincare BodiFirm, BEST Body Firm, and Alastin Skincare

TransFORM Body Treatment. These help to accelerate and enhance body sculpting

procedure results and tighten the skin.


It’s important to note that fat reduction and weight loss are not the same thing.

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution, but rather a non-surgical alternative to

liposuction. At Dermatology Consultants, we also offer numerous adjunct body sculpting procedures,

including Emtone and Emsculpt, to help enhance the results of CoolSculpting. A

healthy-lifestyle post-procedure is recommended to maintain results.
