New Advantage Plus treatment hand piece is at Spa 35® Med Spa!
CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat*. This revolutionary technology removes targeted fat cells in the treatment area to produce 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.
The CoolSculpting procedure reduces stubborn fat cells safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime*. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven and noticeable , so you'll look and feel great from every angle. Diet and exercise will influence your results. CoolSculpting destroys fat cells. But, if you eat more calories than you burn remaining fat cells will get larger.
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells.
The Spa 35 team will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and let the CoolSculpting device do the work. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied.
During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Your diet and exercise habits will influence your long term results.

CoolSculpting Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: Am I a good candidate?
ANSWER: Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
QUESTION: Can Men lose fat from CoolSculpting?
ANSWER: Men get the same great fat removal results as women. It is perfect for the sides of the abdomen above the waist line, and the belly areas. Some men have a tendency to develop fatty deposits in their chest (Gynecomastia) and CoolSculpting is a wonderful non-invasive treatment for this condition.
QUESTION: How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
ANSWER: The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. The minimum amount would be about $800 depending upon current promotions.
QUESTION: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
ANSWER: Most sessions are 35 minutes of treatment time. This doesn't include paperwork and prep work. We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The total length of your CoolSculpting sessions will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. Most people have four sessions in a day, though you may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
QUESTION: Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
ANSWER: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Each session removes 20-25% of the fat cells in the treatment area. After your procedure your body will store excessive calories in the remaining fat cells. Therefore careful monitoring of your diet and exercise routine is important to your long term results. If you consume more calories than you burn your body will store fat in the cells remaining after CoolSculpting.
QUESTION: What does it feel like?
ANSWER: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
QUESTION: Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
ANSWER: The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
QUESTION: Are there any side effects?
ANSWER: During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
QUESTION: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
ANSWER: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
QUESTION: When will I see results?
ANSWER: You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat removal procedure that works! Fat cells are systematically removed by chilling the skin of the treatment area to a temperature that removes fat cells without effecting other cells. The result is a decrease of 20-25% of fat cells (results may vary). This non-surgical treatment requires no needles and no anesthetic. Treatment plans vary by individual body composition, lifestyle and goals. Your individual results can vary. Treatment plans usually include between two and eight treatments. A private and free consultation is offered to potential clients to prepare a treatment plan and estimate total costs.
QUESTION: Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
ANSWER: No supplements or pills are required. You should closely monitor your diet and exercise habits after your procedure to ensure maximum and long lasting results. All clients are encouraged to maximize the potential benefits of good diet and exercise habits. Excessive calories are always stored as fat some where on the body.
QUESTION: What happens if I gain weight down the road?
ANSWER: Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.1

Background and Objectives
A sharply contoured cryolipolysis vacuum applicator was developed to improve fit and tissue draw in the abdomen and flanks to better accommodate a range of body types and a variety of treatment sites. This study was carried out to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the new applicator for treatment of flank fat (“love handles”).
Study Design/Materials and Methods
A cryolipolysis vacuum applicator with a sharply contoured cup and curved cooling plates was used to treat 20 flanks. Two treatment cycles were delivered sequentially to each flank (60-minute cycle at a Cooling Intensity Factor of 41.6). Efficacy was evaluated 12 weeks post-treatment by physicians performing blinded, independent review of clinical photographs. Safety was assessed by the treating physician monitoring subjects for side effects and adverse events.
Four blinded, independent physician reviewers properly identified the pre- and post-treatment photographs 94.4% of the time. Improvement was scored from 0 (none) to 10 (complete) and showed an average 4.3 point (43%) improvement. Side-effects were limited to erythema, edema, bruising, and numbness or tingling at the treatment site, and resolved without treatment.
Multiple treatment cycles from a new improved-fit cryolipolysis applicator are safe and effective for reduction of flank fat bulges. A high degree of improvement was reported by blinded, physician evaluation of standardized photographs. Laser Surg. Med. 46:731–735, 2014. © 2014 The Authors.

Cryolipolysis for reduction of excess adipose tissue.
Division of Dermatology, UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Controlled cold exposure has long been reported to be a cause of panniculitis in cases such as popsicle panniculitis. Cryolipolysis is a new technology that uses cold exposure, or energy extraction, to result in localized panniculitis and modulation of fat. Presently, the Zeltiq cryolipolysis device is FDA cleared for skin cooling, as well as various other indications, but not for lipolysis. There is, however, a pending premarket notification for noninvasive fat layer reduction. Initial animal and human studies have demonstrated significant reductions in the superficial fat layer thickness, ranging from 20% to 80%, following a single cryolipolysis treatment. The decrease in fat thickness occurs gradually over the first 3 months following treatment, and is most pronounced in patients with limited, discrete fat bulges. Erythema of the skin, bruising, and temporary numbness at the treatment site are commonly observed following treatment with the device, though these effects largely resolve in approximately 1 week. To date, there have been no reports of scarring, ulceration, or alterations in blood lipid or liver function profiles. Cryolipolysis is a new, noninvasive treatment option that may be of benefit in the treatment of excess adipose tissue.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:
Cryolipolysis is a unique non-invasive method for the selective reduction of fat cells with controlled, localized cooling. It is important, therefore, to understand the potential efficacy and safety of this new procedure for fat layer reduction.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
A review of the literature associated with cryolipolysis was performed to evaluate the findings from pre-clinical and clinical studies with respect to the mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety.
Cryolipolysis has demonstrated efficacy in both human and animal studies. Histology findings also confirm the selective reduction of fat in both humans and animals, with evidence of a gradual thinning of the fat layer over a period of two to four months. Importantly, cryolipolysis has not produced any significant adverse side effects in studies to date and any noted effects have been minor and temporary.
Although the mechanism of action for cryolipolysis is not yet completely understood, the efficacy and safety of this non-invasive procedure for fat layer reduction has been demonstrated in the studies available to data. Further studies willl assist in identifying the mechanism and elucidate the full potential of this technology to perform safe, non-invasive fat reduction for areas of local fat accumulation.

Cryolipolysis for noninvasive fat cell destruction: initial results from a pig model.
Department of Dermatology, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. email@example.com
Liposuction is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the United States, but its cost and downtime has led to the development of noninvasive approaches for adipose tissue reduction.
To determine whether noninvasive controlled and selective destruction of fat cells (Cryolipolysis) can selectively damage subcutaneous fat without causing damage to the overlying skin or rise in lipid levels.
Three Yucatan pigs underwent Cryolipolysis at 22 sites: 20 at cooling intensity factor (CIF) index 24.5 (-43.8 mW/cm(2)), one at CIF 24.9 (-44.7 mW/cm(2)), and one at CIF 25.4 (-45.6 mW/cm(2)). Treated areas were evaluated using photography, ultrasound, and gross and microscopic pathology. Lipids were at various times points. One additional pig underwent Cryolipolysis at various days before euthanasia.
The treatments resulted in a significant reduction in the superficial fat layer without damage to the overlying skin. An inflammatory response triggered by cold-induced apoptosis of adipocytes preceded the reduction in the fat layer. Evaluation of lipids over a 3-month period following treatment demonstrated that cholesterol and triglyceride values remained normal.
Cryolipolysis is worthy of further study because it has been shown to significantly decrease subcutaneous fat and change body contour without causing damage to the overlying skin and surrounding structures or deleterious changes in blood lipids.

Safety, tolerance, and patient satisfaction with noninvasive cryolipolysis.
Skin and Laser Center, Boom, Belgium. mail@CDierickx.be
Comprehensive assessment of safety, tolerance, and patient satisfaction has not been established from noninvasive body contouring techniques, such as low-level laser therapy, ultrasound, radiofrequency, and infrared light, for reduction of subcutaneous fat.
This multicenter study investigated the clinical outcomes of noninvasive cryolipolysis in European subjects.
A retrospective study was performed at clinical sites in Belgium and France. Safety was assessed according to reports of side effects. Tolerance was evaluated according to pain scores and patient perception of treatment duration. Clinical outcomes were assessed according to patient surveys, caliper measurements, and assessment of photographs.
The investigators treated 518 patients. No significant side effects or adverse events were reported. The procedure was well-tolerated, with 89% of respondents reporting a positive perception of treatment duration and 96% reporting minimal to tolerable discomfort. Survey results demonstrated 73% patient satisfaction and that 82% of patients would recommend the cryolipolysis procedure to a friend. Caliper measurements demonstrated 23% reduction in fat layer thickness at 3 months. Abdomen, back, and flank treatment sites were most effective, with 86% of subjects showing improvement per investigator assessment.
With proper patient selection, cryolipolysis is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective treatment method for reduction of subcutaneous fat.
