Body Contouring

Smoothing and Shaping Treatments For Your Best You

Franklin Skin and Laser has the newest, most advanced body contouring technologies available – CoolSculpting®, CoolTone™, and Exillis®. With summer around the corner, this unique facility has the tools patients need to look great. Board certified surgeon Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf
ensures his patients will have the best treatment in the safest and most comfortable environment.

“In the past, we had to resort to invasive surgical procedures such as liposuction or abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) to shape the body,” says Dr. Bengelsdorf. “Now, with these new technologies, for many people, we don’t.” 

“Body contouring procedures are intended for people already living a healthy lifestyle, but are frustrated with stubborn areas that don’t improve no matter how much they diet and exercise,” explains Dr. Bengelsdorf. “These are the patients that usually obtain the best results.” There are
three non-invasive procedures that help get patients the body they desire, CoolSculpting®, CoolTone™ and Exillis®.

CoolSculpting® is a form of cryolipolysis that causes a frostbite-like injury to fat cells while protecting the skin. The fat cells then die slowly over a couple of months. This gives the skin time to contract while the fat is eliminated from the body. Dr. Bengelsdorf says, “We are also
one of a few practices that can offer DualSculpting, that is, we can use two machines at the same time to decrease total procedure time by 50%. This allows patients to get more areas done in a shorter period of time.”

Franklin Skin and Laser was the first practice in Williamson County to offer CoolSculpting®, and now they are the practice that does the most CoolSculpting® procedures in Middle Tennessee. Their results were so impressive that they were chosen to be one of the first locations
nationwide to offer CoolTone™.

CoolTone™ is a Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) device that tones and conditions muscle in a way you can’t do yourself. As opposed to Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), which can cause burns and skin irritation, after a CoolTone™ treatment, patients may notice some
normal muscle soreness as if they just worked out. It works best in a series of 4 treatments and results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks.

“Removing fat isn’t enough, bodies need muscle, too,” says Dr. Bengelsdorf. “The combination of CoolSculpting® and CoolTone™ is synergistic. The more body muscle you have, the quicker you burn fat.”

Occasionally, these technologies work so well that the need can arise for skin tightening, and that’s where the final technology excels. Exilis Ultra 360® is a monopolar radiofrequency device that non-invasively tightens loose skin. Whether due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging, loose skin can be unflattering. Exillis® in effect “shrink wraps” your skin. Skin tightening can often be achieved in approximately 4 to 6 treatments.

All of these procedures work even better when used in conjunction with one another. They are non-invasive, and have little to no downtime. Dr. Bengelsdorf or a member of his team will first perform a thorough medical consultation, and then create a customized treatment plan for each
individual to maximize results.

Franklin Skin and Laser is a modern, physician-run medical practice with the newest and most technologically advanced body contouring devices that can help patients achieve their dream bodies.
