What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting ® is a new, non-invasive procedure that has been clinically proven to reduce fat by exposing fat cells to cool temperatures. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical procedure that uses controlled cooling to gently eliminate fat. CoolSculpting® uses state-of-the-art technology and is performed only by doctors who have been trained in the procedure. The advanced technique is able to target precise areas of fat and eliminate the cells for good—without causing harm to any other cells in your body.

Hollywood Dermatology is a certified CoolSculpting® provider, offering treatment from our experienced, board-certified specialists at several office locations.

CoolSculpting® may be recommended if you:

  • Are unhappy with modest-sized fat bulges
  • Cannot get rid of stubborn fat, even with diet and exercise
  • Seek fat reduction in specific areas
  • Are in relatively good shape, other than a few stubborn fat areas

What Kind of Fat Does CoolSculpting® Remove?

Many find it difficult to reduce fat in certain areas without the use of cosmetic surgery, such as liposuction. Now, CoolSculpting ® offers a safe, non-surgical alternative to remove stubborn fat that does not go away with diet and exercise alone.

CoolSculpting® is used to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Sides (“love handles” or “muffin top”)
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Below the chin (“double chin”)
  • Under the buttocks (“banana roll”)
  • Back

How does CoolSculpting ® work?

Before beginning CoolSculpting®, an expert physician at Hollywood Dermatology will consult with you to determine whether the procedure is right for you. If you decide to undergo CoolSculpting®, an appointment for the in-office procedure will be scheduled by one of our friendly staff members.

During the fat freezing procedure, a gentle tissue-cooling applicator is attached to the targeted area and then is guided by a monitoring system. Your physician will monitor the entire process to ensure precision and accuracy.


“Dr.Ana Falabella and Maria Victoria Laserna are exquisite dermatologists. They work together as a team and make sure that the patients are well taken care of. The staff is very knowledgeable and make sure that customer service is priority. I would highly recommend for patients visit the office.”
