The Skin Wellness Center now offers CoolSculpting at its office in Chelsea, Ala. The non-surgical fat-reducing treatment uses controlled cooling to rid the body of fat that routinely resists exercise and diet.

CoolSculpting, the only fat-freezing procedure cleared for use by the Federal Drug Association (FDA), has been performed more than 2 million times worldwide.

"The results are perceptive, proven and enduring," said Dr. Corey Hartman, MD, medical director and founder of the Skin Wellness Center. "There are no needles, no anesthesia, no incisions. And in a month or so, our new equipment will enable us to perform CoolSculpting treatments in half the time that we use now."

Among the common areas for CoolSculpting are the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, the flanks ('love handles") and chin.

Since fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than other tissues, CoolSculpting technology safely targets fat cells beneath the skin. A device resembling a handheld vacuum cleaner is used to scan the problem area, precisely directing controlled cooling to the unwanted cells while nearby muscles, veins, nerves and other tissues are unaffected.

During treatment, many patients read, listen to music or work on their computers. Because the procedure is non-surgical, the typical patient returns to normal activities immediately.

Once crystallized, the targeted fat cells die and leave the body through natural sources of elimination in a process that will continue for several months.

Although some patients may experience minor redness, bruising or a dull feeling in the treated area, these side effects are temporary and last no longer than a few weeks.

Upon request, dermatologists at the Skin Wellness Center in Birmingham and Chelsea, Ala. will tailor a CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses the patient's specific problem areas over time.
