Coolsculpting | Tampa | Clearwater
Picture your perfect body. Now Freeze It.
The Coolsculpting by Zeltiq Procedure is a new method of non-surgical body contouring that reduces fat to improve the contour and shape of the body. The Coolsculpting device reduces fat by cooling it. Ideal candidates for the procedure have discrete and localized fat bulges on the abdomen, love handles, and back. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is especially helpful when the fat bulge cannot be reduced by diet and exercise. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq treatments result in noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas.
Are you ready to say good-bye once and for all to your belly bulge or love handles?
Thanks to a very cool technology, you can now attack trouble spots from the outside. With Dual CoolSculpting, stubborn fat can be eliminated easily, effectively and permanently. This totally non-invasive procedure freezes away the fat on those hard-to-lose areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise to provide natural looking results without any downtime.
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!
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Developed by Harvard scientists and FDA-cleared for fat reduction, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq offers a safe, non-invasive method of eliminating fat. Without ever breaking the skin, the CoolSculpting system delivers controlled cooling to target specific fat cells below the skin’s surface. The process, called cryolipolysis, involves the cooling of fat cells by the CoolSculpting applicator, which causes the cells to crystalize. The surrounding tissues are not affected. During the weeks following the CoolSculpting treatment, damaged fat cells are naturally and permanently eliminated by the body as results reach maximum visibility.
Is Dual CoolSculpting Right for Me?
Dual CoolSculpting eliminates fat in targeted areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss program, but is ideal for anyone who is looking to eliminate specific trouble spots in areas such as abdomen, flanks (or love handles), hips, mid-back (or bra fat), inner thighs, outer thighs or arms. If you have a bulge that won’t budge, CoolSculpting is for you!
What Areas Can I Improve with Dual 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. For best results, 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 Dual 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 Dual 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 Tampa Bay 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.

At Radiance Medspa, our Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNPs) 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.
How Much Does Dual CoolSculpting Cost?
The cost of a CoolSculpting treatment depends on which and how many areas of the body you would like to treat. Typical pricing is $750 per applicator/area with package discounts for multiple area treatments. For best results Radiance Medspa offers a complimentary consultation to develop a customized treatment plan.
