Diet and exercise can be frustrating when they no longer seem to be helping you lose weight and shed fat. And losing those last few pounds can be extremely difficult. This is where CoolSculpting® comes in! CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that uses the power of cooling to disrupt fat cells underneath the skin, eliminating them and leaving you with a more sculpted look.
What areas of the body can be targeted with CoolSculpting®?
The area on the side of your stomach near the hips is known as love handles. Often, ab and core exercises flatten the stomach but not the love handles. CoolSculpting® is a great way to slim this area, helping you look better in everything from jeans to a bikini.
Almost all of us will experience sagging and extra fat and skin in the arm area, especially as we age. Many patients complain about ‘batwings’ and have difficulty slimming down their arms. CoolSculpting® applicators are designed specifically for the arm area. Compared to liposuction, the process of fat removal is more gradual, allowing the skin to adjust as the fat is removed, instead of hanging loose immediately. This gives you a tighter and more toned look.
Levy Dermatology is the first practice in Memphis to receive the Cool Advantage Petite™ applicator which is designed specifically to treat the upper arms safely and effectively.
Stomach fat can be stubborn. CoolSculpting® is often used to get rid of that ‘pooch’ and help give patients a flatter stomach. Depending on where and how much fat you have in your stomach, this may take several treatments.

Both the inner and outer thighs can be targeted with CoolSculpting®. You may treat both thighs at the same time but you will need two treatment sessions to target both the inner and the outer thighs. CoolSculpting® offers an applicator specific to the thigh area for hard-to-reach fatty pockets.
CoolMini for Smaller Areas
Underneath the chin is an impossible area to target with exercise and previously, the only way to remove fat in this area was through liposuction. Many people feel embarrassed of their ‘double chin.’ At Levy Dermatology, we offer CoolSculpting® with the Cool-mini applicator to aid in targeting smaller areas where stubborn fat is present; for example, underneath the chin/neck or near the armpit.
