Don’t Like Your Fat? Freeze It.


Here in Florida, there’s no such thing as a “summer body.” We’re at the beach all year long and looking our best never takes a holiday. Often touted as a great treatment for getting swimsuit-ready, CoolSculpting® helps our Tampa-area patients reduce unwanted fat from season to season.

If you haven’t yet tried CoolSculpting, you’re bound to be a fan. Besides treating areas most visible in swimsuits, such as the thighs and abdomen, the CoolSculpting device can go where other fat reduction techniques can’t. Its specially shaped applicators can be easily switched out to treat different areas of the body, including the following:

  • Double chin with the CoolMini™ applicator
  • Knees
  • “Bra bulge”

While many facilities around Tampa Bay advertise CoolSculpting, we’re 1 of only a handful that offer a technique called DualSculpting®. This time-saving option treats 2 areas of the body at once. We’re able to offer DualSculpting because we have 2 CoolSculpting devices. This comes in handy because most of our CoolSculpting patients have 2 areas they’d like to treat—2 thighs, 2 upper arms, 2 love handles. By treating 2 areas in a single session, we can effectively cut your treatment time in half, allowing you to get back to your day sooner—with the same great results.

So, what happens during a CoolSculpting treatment? You may be surprised by how simple it is. Once you arrive at Radiance Medspa, we bring you to your own private treatment room. Be sure to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes, especially around the area you’re treating. Your provider applies the CoolSculpting applicator to your desired treatment area. Depending on the type of applicator used, you may experience a sensation of suction as the bulge you’re treating is gathered into the applicator. Once the applicator is secure, the cooling process begins.

You’ll feel an intense sensation of cold for a few minutes before the area goes numb, which is normal. The CoolSculpting device needs to work for about 45 minutes. This is your time, which you can use as you like. Relax, browse the web, or read a book or magazine. After your treatment, we massage your treated area to loosen the frozen fat, and then off you go! You’re free to get back to your regular activities as soon as you’d like. Many patients report lingering redness or soreness similar to what they’d feel after a hard workout. These symptoms can last for a couple of days, but usually won’t interfere with your normal activities. As the weeks progress, you’ll see your treated area begin to shrink as your body processes the targeted fat cells.
