FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
Coolsculpting is an FDA approved non surgical, non invasive treatment used to spot reduce fatty tissue or bulges. It gently and effectively reduces fat in targeted treated areas. It freezes away fat cells, causing a natural and gradual programmed cell death (termed apoptosis) and does not harm surround tissues or skin. There is no recovery time. It is very advantageous for the prospective patient to be evaluated in consultation by a Physician (NOT a non medical professional) who regularly performs BOTH Liposuction & Coolsculpting, In addition we perform body skin tightening procedures and understand the anatomy to treat all your concerns. If you have a history of weight loss (more than 10lbs) , full term pregnancy(s), you are older then 35 years old or had previous surgery to the intended treated area, then you likely have some component of loose skin laxity, muscle diastasis or scar tissue which will not be improved by coolsculpting and are best to be evaluated by a physician who can address these other issues to reach your goals. If a business offers only one option for treating fat they will tend to push that on patients weather they are an ideal candidate or not. Dr Varano can provide you a full perspective of treatment options & expert opinion to meet your desired goals.
In addition by fully understanding the anatomy Dr. Varano can better determine your candidacy and the likelihood of treatment success. Years of practice and evaluation of fatty tissue versus skin or muscle laxity (diastasis), visceral fat, fibrous tissue, or worse yet not discovering a hidden hernia is something a Non medical personnel can not evaluate properly for you and can cause harm should you do a treatment. Post childbirth leads to many of these issues, which needs proper assessment and not indiscriminately presumed to be "fat". You will see some before/after pictures below that were performed exclusively by our practice.*
WHAT IS COOLTONE?
CoolTone is a separate device by the makers of coolsculpting , which helps build MUSCLE for the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Whereas Coolsculpting works on reducing FAT. CoolTone is a series of 4-6 sessions, which we have a current special $190/session (reg $350). Click our CoolTone page for more info.
WHAT IS THE COST? Cost is based on treatment area(s)/Applicator sizes: range $600 - $1200 per area, additional treatments receive additional discounted prices. CoolSculpting SPECIAL- now $600/site (Regular body applicator). Other Limited time specials will be listed at top of page
For proper fit most treatments involve the "Regular" size applicator $600/site which is 3 x 7 inches.... approximately the size of a large iPhone 7plus or the large Android phones. This will usually cover each lovehandle, upper abdomen/ some lower abdomens, inner thighs, back of thighs, arms, knees, bra/back areas. (Most treatment areas will have 2 sites for example: a right lovehandle and left lovehandle.)
The Larger applicator (4 x 12 inches) can properly fit on the lower abdomen in about 30-40% of clients and costs more but because we charge less than what is permitted by the Zeltiq company we can not put this figure in print but you can call for pricing.
Treatment with the coolmini for the chin/neck area is $750/session.
Outer Thigh/Saddlebag treatment $750/site (each side takes 1.25 hours/site).
Military and Group Discounts available. Package discounts 4+ areas 10-20% off. The Coolsculpting company regulates the pricing that can be advertised and $600 is rock bottom price permitted for Regular applicator, so other practices will not advertise lower than $600 (if so, then its not Coolsculpting).

WHAT IS THE COOL-REBATE GUARANTEE?
Developed uniquely by Medical Cosmetic Enhancements. Because results may vary among individuals, we understand that some individuals may hope to seek more dramatic results than coolsculpting can provide in one session. Any funds you paid for your coolsculpting session, you can receive 50% of that fee rebated/credited on any future Laser Liposuction procedure performed to that same problematic area.
For example if you paid a total of $1200 for coolsculpting performed to abdomen, and after 3 months, you were hoping to see more dramatic reduction, we would credit you $600 (50% of the coolsculpting price you paid) toward future laser liposuction done on the abdomen*.
Some people may choose to do a full transformation plan with multiple treatment areas/cycles. Why spend thousands of dollars without the peace of mind knowing that the results will be exactly what your looking for? That is why we offer this rebate guarantee, for peace of mind and knowledge that exclusively at our office we can achieve your goals, without wasting funds to find out you may need additional Coolsculpting. Providers who only offer coolsculpting, can only offer "more coolsculpting".
*liposuction must be done within 9 month of initial treatment $1000 maximum rebate
WHICH IS BETTER FOR ME LASER LIPOSUCTION Or COOLSCULPTING?
Coolsculpting is best suited for fat bulges and is not a substitute for liposuction. Though we do get individuals that do not want to have any invasive treatments. We generally recommend it for individuals with a BMI <27, and a few trouble spot areas. For larger individuals Coolsculpting can be used for "Lipo-Like" results but will generally require multiple treatment sessions.
Obviously every individual is different and he/she must choose which is the best fit for their goals, lifestyle, budget, etc. Here at Medical Cosmetic Enhancements we seek to achieve your goals. We offer several ways to treat your stubborn fat and ultimately you will come up with a potential treatment plan with Dr. Varano after your consultation. If you are not a candidate for any numerous possible reasons as previously mentioned, we will let you know that during the consultation and alternative surgical or non-surgical treatments may be suggested. Below is a comparison of Coolsculpting vs Laser Liposuction when treating a full abdomen (both Upper and Lower abdomen) and Flanks:*
