Top CoolSculpting® Provider in Wilmington, NC

WDC, Wilmington’s most experienced CoolSculpting® practice for treating exercise resistant stubborn fat is excited to offer CoolSculpting® Elite. Take your body contouring results to the next level with the latest CoolSculpting® technology – CoolSculpting® Elite; offering faster treatments, improved fat reducing results and now at a lower price than prior generation treatments.

We’re proud to have been the first practice in Wilmington to offer CoolSculpting®, the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure, and we are now pleased to be the first in Wilmington to have the latest and greatest technology with the new CoolSculpting® Elite system. Led by Rosalyn George, M.D., Wilmington Dermatology Center was founded to fit our vision: to keep up with technological advances in dermatology, providing our patients access to cutting-edge procedures.

What is CoolSculpting® Elite?

Everyone has areas of the body where fat seems to linger despite our best efforts to be rid of it. CoolSculpting® was developed and based on the idea that cold can selectively destroy fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to target and kill these fat cells, after which they’re eliminated through the body’s natural processes.

Our CoolSculpting® Elite fat reduction system has applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. CoolSculpting® Elite harnesses proven CoolSculpting® technology to target, freeze, and eliminate treated fat cells. CoolSculpting® Elite is FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in nine areas of the body including the thigh, abdomen, and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), upper arm, and the submental and submandibular areas.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. George and her staff

I recently had CoolSculpting at Wilmington Dermatology and am thrilled with the results. I lost 2.5″* in my waist and abdomen which I’d never been able to do with exercising and diet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most frequently asked questions we receive regarding CoolSculpting® include:

What is the History of CoolSculpting®?

The origin of this amazing device came from a study on popsicle panniculitis where Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, M.D. and R. Rox Anderson, M.D. observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. Cryolipolsis became the insight behind this freezing technology that the CoolSculpting ™ procedure is based on. In September of 2010, CoolSculpting® received FDA approval with a clean safety profile.

How Do I Start My CoolSculpting® Treatment?

At Wilmington Dermatology, every one of our treatment plans starts off with a consultation. We outline your target areas using a 360-degree approach, walk you through the CoolSculpting ™ procedure, and answer any questions you may have regarding pre- and post-procedure. From there that we can determine if CoolSculpting ™ is the best fat reduction treatment for your problem area. Once treatment areas are determined, we take a variety of photographs from various angles that enable us to gauge your progress after a 3-month period.

Does CoolSculpting® Hurt?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment, and patients describe feeling pressure and intense cold at the start of their session, but this sensation dissipates in the first few minutes. Treatments typically last about one to two hours, and most patients read, work, or even nap during their procedure!

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Our experts will tailor an individual treatment plan just for you in order to meet your goals, but most patients do see optimal results after one session! This can vary from person to person, so we might schedule additional sessions based on your needs.

What Should I Expect from CoolSculpting®?

During our extensive consultation, we’ll outline our target areas using a 360-degree approach and determine if CoolSculpting® is the right treatment for you. We’ll take extensive photographs to gauge your progress after a 3-month period, and select the best applicator size for your treatment area. On the day of your procedure, you’ll be able to lay comfortably and read, work, or even nap during the 1-2 hours CoolSculpting® usually lasts. From there, we’ll remove the applicator and massage the area, and then send you on your way to resume your normal activities. You may feel some tingling and numbness in the treatment area, but if there is any discomfort, we will discuss relief options with you.

Are There Side Effects or Downtime?

Typical side effects following CoolSculpting® include numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, tingling, mild pain, or stinging. While not everyone experiences these side effects, we can provide you with prescription options to help with any discomfort. There’s no downtime associated with CoolSculpting®; some patients even receive treatment on their lunch break and go right back to work.

How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?

Consultations at Wilmington Dermatology are free, and the cost of CoolSculpting® will determine how many treatments are needed, as well as on which areas of the body, which require different applicators. If we decide CoolSculpting® is right for you, we’ll be able to give you an estimate based on your individual treatment plan.

When Will I See Results, and How Long Will They Last?

Results from a CoolSculpting® treatment can be as noticeable as early as three weeks after your treatment, with the most dramatic results happening after a 3-month period. The results from CoolSculpting® are permanent — once those fat cells are destroyed, they’re gone. However, if you were to gain weight in the future, it would be evenly distributed throughout your body, including the area where you previously received CoolSculpting® treatment.

Why CoolSculpting® at Wilmington Dermatology Center?

Wilmington Dermatology Center was the very first to introduce CoolSculpting™ to Wilmington over a decade ago, and we are the first to introduce CoolSculpting® Elite. We were announced as the top CoolSculpting™ practice in North Carolina when this cutting edge treatment first launched. As a certified CoolSculpting® Complete Practice, we have completed more CoolSculpting™ treatments in Wilmington than any other location, so you can trust your results to our experienced staff.

In addition to CoolSculpting®, we were the first to introduce CoolTone® by CoolSculpting™ and have been recognized as a top volume provider in the nation. CoolTone™ is a perfect procedure to pair with CoolSculpting®. This FDA cleared treatment is used to tone, firm, and strengthen the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. These devices together, along with the experience and knowledge of our staff, offer the most advanced technology in body contouring.
