Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat

Coolsculpting Elite is a fat reduction body contouring system with more advanced applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. It harnesses proven CoolSculpting technology to target, freeze, and eliminate treated fat cells. CoolSculpting has been an industry leader, creating the market for non-invasive fat reduction over the course of 11 years.

The Future of Fat Freezing

Scientifically Addressing Unwanted Fat

Respecting Your Privacy

Many patients do not want anyone to know that they have had any cosmetic work done. CoolSculpting creates subtle results, so nobody will know that you’ve had the procedure done unless you tell them. You’ll experience a gradual reduction that takes place over a short period of time. One may think you have just been better with diet and exercise.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

As patients vary with their concerns, the number of sessions will vary to effectively treat problem areas. Typically, most patients love multiple sessions for further fat reduction, but other patients may only require one session and are very happy. 

During your complimentary consultation at our Fredericksburg office, you will meet with a certified provider that will evaluate your concerns and recommend a treatment plan that works best for you. GlowMD has been treating patients in Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties for many years.

How Long Does It Take?

The duration of the procedure will depend on what areas we are treating and the number of applicators being used. Because we are the only practice in Fredericksburg to offer Elite Dual Sculpting, we’re able to treat multiple areas at one time, reducing your treatment time. 

A single CoolSculpting Elite body contouring treatment typically results in a 20% to 25% reduction in the fatty area treated. A slimmer contour is generally noticeable as soon as four weeks following treatment, with complete results typically noticed after about 12 weeks.

What Is Treatment Like?

When you arrive, we will take you back into a private room for photos. Patients are instructed to wear something comfortable, but we may offer disposable garments to wear depending on the treatment area. After photos are taken, we take you into your private treatment room where you can relax and get ready for your Coolsculpting Elite treatment. 

We do offer complimentary WIFI, and music if you wish, so you can remain comfortable as we go about our business of removing your unwanted fat. There are no needles, medications, cuts, or anesthesia during this procedure. You may feel sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, or tingling that normally subsides over a few minutes of time.

What Can I Expect After a CoolSculpting Elite Treatment?

There are absolutely no restrictions on activities following treatment. One may expect the treated area to feel numb to touch for a period of two to four weeks, though this will go away on its own. Occasionally, the pinching type of applicator might create a small bruise (because of the suction), which will go away within days. 

A small minority of patients will experience discomfort and/or some swelling in the treated area, but this will resolve within seven to 14 days and generally requires no treatment at all.  Best of all, a reduction in fatty bulges is typically seen in just four to six weeks after your CoolSculpting Elite body contouring treatment.

Get the Skinny on CoolSculpting Elite!

CoolSculpting was initially developed by two Harvard scientists, Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. Rox Anderson. They observed the basic biological fact that fat cells are more vulnerable and sensitive to cold injury than the other cells around them (such as skin, muscle, nerve, and blood vessels). The two doctors were both familiar with a strange phenomenon known as “popsicle panniculitis”, which has to do with the loss of cheek fat that occurs while sucking on a frozen Popsicle. 

Their observations led to the development of CoolSculpting technology, now owned and produced by the publicly owned company, Zeltiq, based in Pleasanton, CA. We’re excited to be offering this revolutionary treatment to patients in Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas. To learn more, reach out and set up your consultation at our office today.

Improving the Appearance of Lax Tissue

You’ve heard how great CoolSculpting can be, but you may be wondering: “what about laxity? Can CoolSculpting improve the appearance of lax tissue?”  When it comes to a double chin, the answer is “yes,” as the FDA has cleared CoolSculpting to improve the appearance of lax tissue in conjunction with treatments for submental fat (double chin). In fact, CoolSculpting is the first and only non-surgical fat reduction technology to earn FDA clearance to improve the appearance of lax tissue after treatment for a double chin.

Schedule an in-person consultation with us at glow MD Laser MedSpa and let us provide an assessment and estimate for CoolSculpting Elite! At your consultation, you can discuss the areas you’d like to address and your treatment goals. CoolSculpting Elite is cleared by the FDA for nine body areas, safely and effectively reducing subcutaneous fat in the flanks (“love handles”), abdomen, thighs, submental area (under the chin), back, bra area, underneath the buttocks (banana roll), and upper arms. And now it’s also cleared to improve the appearance of lax tissue in double chin treatments!
