What if you could lose up to a quarter of the fat in almost any part of your body – in just a few weeks, and after only two treatments? And what if that treatment didn’t require any drugs or surgery? You’d probably say that’s pretty cool!

And you would be half right. It’s CoolSculpting, the revolutionary treatment provided by Elizabeth Anderson of Refine Laser & Skin Care in Chanhassen, MN. The advanced practice esthetician, certified laser technician, and CoolSculpting master and national trainer helps her clients achieve their aesthetic goals through the power of cryolipolysis – a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that the FDA has fully approved for the abdomen, chin, love handles, upper arms, upper and lower back, inner and outer thighs, and underneath the buttocks.

“The technology behind CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital,” said Elizabeth. “Essentially, a CoolSculpting device contains a small, specialized chiller. The device’s applicator directs freezing temperature beneath the skin where it destroys 20 to 25 percent of localized fat cells. 

“After treatment, the dead fat cells are collected and excreted by the body’s natural biological processes. The effects of CoolSculpting are permanent, because fat cells cannot grow back. It takes about 90 days to see full results, although most people notice significant improvement in just four to six weeks.

“CoolSculpting is extraordinarily safe. In addition to a gel pad and other special preparations, the skin is protected against frostbite by the device’s multiple built-in safety measures. The device instantly shuts down if it detects that the sensitive skin is at any risk of becoming too cold.

“What does CoolSculpting feel like? Well, if you’re a Minnesotan, then you already experience it firsthand every winter. Most of my clients report only mild discomfort during the first three to five minutes of treatment. Once that’s out of the way, you can comfortably spend the next half hour reading a book, playing on your phone, or even taking a cat nap. 

“When your treatment is finished, you can drive yourself home: zero downtime, no pain meds needed. That’s a lot more than you can say for liposuction, which also happens to cost a lot more money as well.

“When you come to our medical spa for CoolSculpting, you’re getting the best experience and the best technology. I’ve performed thousands of procedures over the past decade. When I’m not treating my own clients, I’m traveling across the country to train new body sculpting specialists and teach others who are already practicing how they can achieve better outcomes. And because I use the CoolSculpting Elite – which has two applicators instead of just one – I’m able to deliver double the results in the same amount of time.

“I help people who want to look their absolute best at weddings, class reunions, beaches, and anywhere else their lives take them. They’re amazed to discover how quickly, safely and painlessly they can eliminate body fat that was too stubborn for diet and exercise!”

Elizabeth welcomes everyone to Refine Laser & Skin Care for a complimentary consultation. Once she has determined whether you are a candidate for CoolSculpting and mapped out your personalized treatment plan, you’ll be just a few weeks away from a slimmer, more confident you!
