A non-surgical and natural way to eliminate stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body.  No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no surgery.  And most importantly, no downtime.

Say goodbye to muffin tops and love handles.

CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.

Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime.  Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.

Call us today to schedule your consultation, to find out if CoolSculpting is right for you.

What will the results be?

Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.

What happens during the treatment?

To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Are the results permanent?

During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.

How do I get started?

Call us today to set up your consultation. We’ll see if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting and work with you to develop a treatment plan.

Breakthrough to Get Rid of Fat

Minneapolis, MN – CoolSculpting®, an innovative technology that freezes away unwanted fat, is available at Crutchfield Dermatology, one of the best medical practices in the Twin Cities to offer this breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction.

Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body thereby inducing a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., in the United States, this breakthrough is based on a vast body of research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.

Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area thereby specifically targeting fat. Treatments last between one to two hours. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects if they desire. On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated area, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.

Non-Invasive Fat Removal

Webtalk RadioWhat was a dream several years ago, has now become a reality for several people: Unwanted fat can now be frozen away; at least according to reports from Charles Crutchfield, professor of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota. “Its truly  amazing,” says Crutchfield., “up to 20% of the fat cells can be removed in one sitting.”

Based on a process Harvard researchers discovered while studying children sucking on popsicles. This  process is called CoolSculpting, and a company called Zeltiq perfected the methodology. It has been done safely on thousands of people.
