No Diet. No Surgery. No Downtime.
Freeze your Fat away.
What is Dual CoolSculpting (or “DualSculpting”)?
Dual CoolSculpting (or “DualSculpting”) utilizes two applicators at the same time so that two areas can be treated at once. This significantly reduces the amount of time it takes to get a CoolSculpting treatment – DualSculpting can literally cut treatment time in half!
What Areas Can I Improve with CoolSculpting?
With CoolSculpting, you can eliminate resistant fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks (or love handles), hips, mid-back (or bra fat), inner thighs, outer thighs, or arms. The Cool Mini applicator will work under the chin and in smaller areas too. For best results, call 651-204-9338 to schedule a consultation to create the ideal treatment plan for your body.
When Will I see Results and How Many Treatments will I need?
Because the frozen fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body, your results will occur over time, improving week-by-week. Many patients will start to notice improvement within 2-3 weeks of the treatment, however maximum results are typically seen in approximately 12 weeks. Often, a single CoolSculpting treatment on an area is all that is needed to make a noticeable difference there. However, some patients will opt to get another treatment on that same area when additional reduction is desired. The additional treatment is usually applied to the area 60-90 days after the previous treatment. It is estimated that 20-25% of the fat in the treatment area is eliminated each time a treatment is performed, and CoolSculpting can be safely repeated on the same body area until desired results are achieved.
Are My Results Permanent?
Yes! Dual CoolSculpting freezes and permanently eliminates fat cells in the treated areas. This means that once the fat cells are gone, they are gone forever. However, it is important to maintain a steady weight after a CoolSculpting treatment, because while you can’t grow new fat cells, there are some fat cells remaining after the treatment, and those cells can grow larger with weight gain.
How Long Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Take?
A typical CoolSculpting procedure lasts one to four hours depending on the number of total areas being treated. “DualSculpting” (referring to the use of two CoolSculpting Systems at the same time) makes it possible to treat multiple areas in half the time.
Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Hurt, and is there any Downtime?
During treatment, the CoolSculpting applicators are attached to the targeted areas, and you will feel some suction followed by intense coldness, which subsides as the treatment gets underway. For the remainder of your treatment time, you can just lie back and relax as your unwanted fat gets chilled. Most patients spend the time reading a book, checking email or just meditating.
A Typical CoolSculpting procedure lasts one to three hours depending on the number of areas being treated. Radiance Medspa is one of only a handful of facilities in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area that offers Dual CoolSculpting, which benefits from the use of two CoolSculpting systems at the same time to cut treatment time in half.
Following treatment, you may have minor bruising, tenderness or numbness at the site of the treated areas, but that is temporary and should be gone within a week. There is no downtime, and you can return to work and working out the same day.
Who Performs the CoolSculpting Procedure?
At Radiance Medspa, our Licensed Aestheticians perform the CoolSculpting procedure. They are all trained and certified by Zeltiq to perform the treatment and will ensure that you have a comfortable, safe and effective procedure.
Is the CoolSculpting Procedure Safe?
Developed by Harvard Scientists, CoolSculpting was FDA approved in 2010 and has been used in more than 1.5 million treatments around the globe since that date. The process by which the CoolSculpting System freezes fat cells ensures that no other tissues or structures in the treatment area are damaged in the process. Only the fat cells are damaged, then they are naturally eliminated over time by means of the body’s natural waste removal processes. Other than the possibility of some local and temporary tenderness, sensitivity, swelling, and/or numbness, which occur in a small percentage of patients, there are no other expected side effects, long or short- term from the procedure.
Cool Technology. Even Cooler Results
I had recently lost some weight but was having difficulty with my stomach area and was looking for a solution that would last. I went to Radiance Medspa in Woodbury and was shocked at the what they had to offer, Coolscupting. I had never heard of it before and felt a little apprehensive about the procedure, but after talking with the staff and seeing their beautiful suite where the procedure was to happen, I soon felt calm and relaxed. Initially there was some pain, however it soon subsided and I felt like I could see the results within the first few weeks. No way would this last, but it did. Even months later, I have more confidence and now feel comfortable wearing a bikini, something I never thought I could. – Jacqueline
I feel confident in a two-piece bathing suit. I haven’t had a two-piece on in years and I can walk around with it on. I have a form fitting dress on and when I walk down the street I feel confident. CoolSculpting is probably one of the best things I’ve ever done. – Paige
I definitely did not want or need surgery. That’s why I decided on CoolSculpting. – Karen
It’s not just that other people noticed the results – as in individual, it inspired me. – Jeani
What Is Body FX?
BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite leading to improvements in your body contour. BodyFX will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. BodyFX is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin
How Does Body FX?
BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body contouring results.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments – with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.
What Kind Of Procedure Care Is Required
There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunch time procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.
