Before and After Treatment

Crutchfield Dermatology is pleased to be the first and exclusive provider of CoolSculpting treatments in St. Paul and the surrounding communities. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq literally cools away cellulite fat. It works better and more permanently than Zerona. If you want to lose fat and cellulite, this is a great alternative to liposuction.

Coolsculpting Vs. Zerona

Question: Dr. Crutchfield, what is the difference between CoolSculpting and Zerona treatments for getting rid of unwanted fat?

Answer: Things to consider: * CoolSculpting is the first device cleared for the fat reduction! - Zerona is cleared for non-invasive body contouring (circumferential reduction) and NOT for fat reduction.

* CoolSculpting selectively & reliably eliminates fat in TARGETED problem areas - Zerona cannot target where the reduction will occur. It can only claim total contouring & circumference reduction (no telling where the 3.5 inches will come from)

* CoolSculpting KILLS the targeted fat cells - Zerona cannot claim fat-cell elimination. The fat cells are diminished in size but do remain in place. In fact, their own study claims that this change may be temporary and more studies are necessary. In fact, what you see 2 weeks post treatment in their study are test patients starting to gain their fat back!

* CoolSculpting has no post treatment requirements, diet or exercise regiments. CoolSculpting kills the fat cell! Zerona requires patients must be willing to maintain regular diet & exercise during treatment -Zerona Patients must give up caffeine & alcohol for 1 month & must exercise - 2 weeks before treatment & 2 weeks during treatment - Exercise 30 minutes a day - Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water each day

How Coolsculpting Works

What Is CoolSculpting by Zeltiq?

Life Is Beautiful without Bulges

It's a common complaint: People who are physically fit and at a stable weight still have bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat they can't get rid of no matter how much they exercise or diet. Spot reducing fat through diet and exercise is practically impossible for many of us.

Men and women alike face the frustrating truth every day: A muffin top. Love handles. Back fat—not much, but just enough to show through a snug-fitting t-shirt or blouse. These small areas of fat don't seem to warrant a surgical procedure. But they're tempted. What else can they do? CoolSculpting™: The Cool Solution

Targeting Fat Lose Areas

Now you can attack these problem areas with the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. A team of scientists and physicians developed the CoolSculpting procedure to address these problems. CoolSculpting utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target, cool, and eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue.

Treatments That Are Quick With Great Results

After a one- to three-hour CoolSculpting procedure, the patient's body goes to work. Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will the results be after a Coolsculpting fat freeze treatment?

The CoolSculpting by Zeltiq procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20 to 40%. Scientific testing has found an average reduction of 20%. If the patient's treatment plan calls for an additional procedure to get rid of love handles or back fat, this will be done after two to four months, depending on the doctor's advice. An additional 20% reduction can be experienced, resulting in a total fat loss of 40%. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the case.

What happens during the Coolsculpting procedure?

The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. For instance, if your goal is to reduce your love handles, the doctor will position the system on your side. The device then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the tissue will be cooled most efficiently.

What does it feel like to have fat get cold from Coolsculpting?

As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. The patient is seated comfortably or lying down during the one- to three-hour procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap.

Can the patient return to normal activities after the procedure?

Yes. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.

When will the patient see results?

Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But the body is still flushing fat cells, and will continue doing so for up to four months.

Are the results permanent for weight loss?

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
