Coolsculpting in Columbia, MD

Coolsculpting is the only FDA cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. The system uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise.

At your first appointment you will meet with one of our board-certified doctors to discuss your personalized treatment plan. You will have an availability at the appointment to talk about the benefits, number of appointments needed and anticipated results. You will also have an opportunity to schedule your first procedure. This appointment is NO COST TO YOU!

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. During your procedure, feel free to read, nap or watch television.

As the name suggests, the CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly. Controlled cooling is delivered via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat.  Though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching.

There is no downtime associated with the procedure, as it is completely non-invasive. You can return to normal activities immediately after.

For scheduling or more information please call us at 443-542-0505.
