A more confident you.
Genetic predisposition, lifestyle choices, gravity, or a life event like pregnancy can all lead to stubborn bulges of fat that persist even with regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting brings a cool, patented non-invasive treatment to help both men and women lose those bulges, pooches, and rolls for a more confident you. It’s been Hollywood’s secret go-to non-surgical method for fat loss!
Here at TDI we pride ourselves on bringing you the most cutting-edge procedures and products on the market. To offer you the best in body contouring, we offer a whole suite of technologies to bring both men and women the best in body contouring, including CoolSculpting for treating unwanted stomach fat, lovehandles, muffin tops, double chins and back fat. The results are truly transformative!
Although seemingly widely available, the CoolSculpting experience is unique at The Derm Institute. Your treatment is truly tailored and customized to your individual needs. We use a multi-modality approach to body contouring, including technologies such as acoustic vibrational Cellutone treatment with every CoolSculpting procedure to aid in skin tightening and fat breakdown, along with VANQUISH ME fat elimination, and injectable fat elimination through Kybella. Every patient interested in CoolSculpting receives a complete consultation to determine the best course of treatment, whether that be multiple courses of just CoolSculpting or a combination “Fire and Ice” technology (a combo of Coolsculpting and Vanquish ME) to reach the desired, truly sculpted result.
See how it works:
Coolsculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure which utilizes controlled cold temperatures to target and crystalize fat cells to reduce stubborn fat in the desired area. These “frozen” fat cells die off and are eliminated naturally by the body. With Coolsculpting you can reshape your body with us while relaxing and walk out the same day! Whether you are a man looking to reduce stubborn lovehandles, or a mom looking for a “mommy makeover”, CoolSculpting can be customized for your needs. In the weeks and months following, the fat layer is reduced, revealing a slimmer you! The Derm Institute is equipped with the newest and most advanced modalities in CoolSculpting—including CoolAdvantage and CoolAdvantage Plus, which reduce your treatment times to as short as 35 minutes!
Every CoolSculpting candidate that comes to our practice is evaluated based on Dr. Chiu’s multi-prong body sculpting approach, which includes both heat and cold fat treatment methods.
Commonly treated areas for both men and women include:
- Flanks (love handles)

Here at TDI our approach for treatment always mirrors our belief that everyone is unique, and that patient care should be individualized. Rather than going to another practice where you are simply assessed and then given the same course of treatment as everyone else, at TDI, Dr. Chiu has created a fully-customizable body contouring experience. Every CoolSculpting procedure is coupled with Cellutone, to tighten the skin and help eliminate fat faster. Whether the best treatment for you is CoolSculpting, Kybella, or a combination of both Vanquish ME and CoolSculpting (the Fire and Ice treatment), we work with you to find the most optimal and realistic plan to achieve your goals.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure – an applicator is applied to the surface of the skin to deliver precisely controlled cooling which then crystallizes and removes the fat cells in specific areas of the body. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually removed through the body’s normal metabolic processes. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients as early as three weeks to three months after treatment. The results are amazing!
Common areas to address with CoolSculpting include but are not limited to:
- Abdomen (belly fat or muffin top)
- Flanks (love handles)
- Upper arm fat
- Chin (double chin)
- Bra Bulges
- Armpit pooches
- Under Buttocks (aka ‘banana roll’)
- Thighs aka “saddle bags”
CoolSculpting is ideal for anyone, man or woman with pinch-able fat who already have a healthy diet and lifestyle. Ideal candidates have stubborn fat or bulges that do not seem to improve even with exercise. CoolSculpting is not intended for significant weight-loss and is not recommended as a weight-loss solution. Here at TDI we ensure that your goals are discussed and that the best and most complete plan of treatment is executed, so that you get consistent results.
Treatment sessions vary from 35 minutes to one hour, depending on the areas being treated*. The key is to follow through on the complete plan personalized for you by our team, with a minimum of two sessions as this yields the optimal results.
No! Most people only experience sensations of pulling, tugging or pinching at the beginning of the process as a vacuum uses pressure to draw tissue into the applicator. There may also be feelings of tingling in the initial five minutes of the procedure, after which you can relax, watch a movie, read a book or simply lay back.
I hear about many different treatments for non-surgical fat loss—what is the difference between CoolSculpting, Vanquish ME, and Kybella?
Coolsculpting uses cryolipolysis or cold to eliminate fat, while Vanquish ME uses radiofrequency heat energy to target fat cells; Kybella is an injectable medication that dissolves fat in small areas. At The Derm Institute, we offer all these modalities and will look at your body type and area of concern to customize a treatment plan which determines the best treatment or combination of treatments for you. Typically Vanquish ME is used for debulking, Coolsculpting is for “sculpting” definitive bulges or problem areas, and Kybella is used for small areas to perfect and contour.
Since CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, patients generally resume their routine activities immediately, including returning to work and exercise regimens. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the target area by an average of 25% each session*. Results are seen as early as three weeks to three months after the treatment*. We do recommend 2 sessions about 1-2 months apart for optimal results.
Fat cells destroyed by CoolSculpting and removed from the body are permanent. However, with weight gain, fat cells can still expand. If you maintain good exercise and dietary habits, the results should be longterm.
The price of CoolSculpting depends on the applicators used and the total number of sessions required to achieve the desired results. Because this depends on each patients’ needs, an in-office consultation and body mapping is required to determine pricing. It is crucial not to under treat as this can be a waste of resources. Complete “treatment to transformation” is key.
