CoolSculpting™ and DualSculpting™

Life Is Beautiful Without Bulges! It's not impossible. It's CoolSculpting™ and DualSculpting™.  Now it's easy to get rid of the love handles, muffin top or other unwanted bulges comfortably, conveniently, and naturally. Dr. Germain introduces DualSculpting here: 

 More than three years ago, Germain Dermatology was the first practice to offer the CoolSculpting procedure to South Carolina. Enhancing the CoolSculpting technology available, Germain Dermatology is proud to be the leader in advanced cosmetic procedures once again by being the first provider of DualSculpting™. DualSculpting™ is the only, non-invasive procedure that uses two advanced cooling machines simultaneously to gently and effectively target and eliminate fat in specific areas of a patient’s body in an even shorter period of time.

“Our practice has performed hundreds of CoolSculpting procedures over the last three years. With the introduction of DualSculpting, patients can spend less time achieving their desired results without surgery.” said Dr. Marguerite Germain, board-certified dermatologist and owner of Germain Dermatology, “We understand how busy our patients are with life’s demands, and we want them to utilize their time wisely. DualSculpting cuts that time in half.” 

The cryolipolysis technique provides a nonsurgical method for healthy patients who want to target specific, stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. With fat cells being naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cooling, the cooling effect from the procedure causes crystallization of the lipids in the fat cells. The cells then begin to break down and are gradually eliminated by the body's normal metabolic processes, over a period of two to four months. These fat cells are eliminated from your body permanently. Unlike liposuction -which also eliminates fat cells from your body- the DualSculpting™ procedure doesn't require the patient to endure surgery as there's no cutting or needles. 

CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq is an FDA cleared technology that uses cold therapy to freeze and destroy fat cells permanently, no surgery required. Zeltiq uses precisely targeted cold therapy in a comfortable treatment room. Most people ask, 'Well if you're freezing fat, then why can't I just put a 20-lb bag of ice on my muffin top?', however, CoolSculpting is not actually freezing the fat but taking away the energy from the fat cell, causing it to die over a period of 2-4 months. It crystalizes the lipids in the fat cells causing the slow breakdown of the cells and then is released through your body's normal metabolic processes. It's the painless "cool" new way to get rid of fat in specific areas.
