Dermatologists at the Skin Wellness Center of Alabama in Birmingham now remove unwanted fat without surgery. New, innovative CoolSculpting treatments reflect the Center's cutting-edge approach to skin care.

"Until recently, the only option to restore taut and smooth skin was a surgical procedure. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure designed to rid the body of unwanted fat without any downtime."

The Skin Wellness Center of Alabama now offers a new procedure that safely eliminates fat without surgery. CoolSculpting is the only treatment approved by the Federal Drug Association to use controlled cooling to safely target and remove stubborn fat. The results of CoolSculpting are proven, noticeable and enduring.

"Up to nine of every ten women will develop unwanted fat at some point in their lives," said Dr. Corey Hartman, founder and medical director of the Skin Wellness Center. "Until recently, the only option to restore taut and smooth skin was a surgical procedure. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure designed to rid the body of unwanted fat without any downtime."

CoolSculpting uses a concentration of cold temperatures to target, freeze and kill fat cells while stimulating the body's removal of them. As the body metabolizes the dead fat cells, its overall appearance improves, and the eliminated tissues do not return. Surrounding tissues are not affected by the treatment.

CoolSculpting is not painful, and no anesthesia is necessary. When the procedure starts, patients initially feel a deep cold and tingling sensation before the treatment area becomes numb. The procedure lasts an hour, during which time the patient may read, watch television, talk on the phone or even nap. Since the procedure is non-surgical, the patient can return to normal activities immediately. The treatment area may be red or slightly bruised with a mild tingling or tender sensation, but these effects disappear in a week or so.

Dermatologists can use CoolSculpting to treat a wide variety of areas, including the abdomen, upper and lower back, arms, flanks, double chin and male breasts.

Patients may notice positive changes in appearance in a few weeks. However, full results will take about four months. Although eliminated fat cells are gone forever, the body can still add new ones. As a result, regular exercise and a healthy diet are recommended.
