Minimize a large volume of stubborn fat without surgery or downtime and look great from every angle with CoolSculpting. (*)

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure created by Harvard scientists that uses a process known as cryolipolysis to freeze and minimize stubborn fat cells. It delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself intact. The treated fat cells crystallize then gradually self-destruct and die. Over time, the body naturally processes the fat and minimize these dead cells which result in a long-term, more sculpted appearance at the treatment site. CoolSculpting is best for stubborn fat on the abdomen, love handles, back, inner and outer thighs and double chin.

Why choose Capital Laser & Skin Care for your CoolSculpting? It’s simple. We combine unsurpassed expertise with meticulous attention to patient privacy and comfort to deliver a patient experience that is second to none. Dr. Tanzi and the professionals at Capital Laser & Skin Care have been at the forefront in the development of the CoolSculpting procedure for many years. In fact, they were part of the clinical trials that led to the FDA approval of CoolSculpting in 2009 and continue to investigate advances in cryolipolysis to this day.

*“Best thing I’ve ever done! After having three kids, CoolSculpting is a ‘must have’. I’m now back to my pre-baby body, don’t need Spanx anymore and am so much more confident!” -CLSC patient H.J.

CoolMini is a CoolSculpting applicator for treating smaller, harder-to-reach pockets of fat, such as under the chin, above the knees, and around the armpits.  Below you will see an example of how we use the CoolMini applicator to freeze submental fat under the chin.

All of our CoolSculpting consultations and treatments are performed in our state-of-the-art body contouring suites for maximum privacy. During the consultation with a board-certified dermatologist, we will assess your areas of concern and determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. Capital Laser & Skin Care has the most advanced CoolSculpting handpieces available including CoolMini™ for a double chin, CoolSmooth Pro™, and CoolAdvantage, which can treat unwanted fat in a fraction of the time of traditional handpieces. Also, with multiple CoolSculpting devices available in our body contouring suites, we can offer DualSculpting to treat multiple areas in half the time to get our patients back to their day quickly.

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are placed on the targeted area. You may feel pulling, tugging and mild pinching at the beginning of the treatment. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat layer. The sensation of cold during treatment usually subsides after five to ten minutes once the treatment area becomes numb. At this point, most patients will read, check email, watch a movie, or just take a nap. After CoolSculpting, most patients can return to normal activities right away. Although many people will start to notice results in as little as three weeks after treatment, the most dramatic changes are seen after three months.
