Our Houston dermatologist Dr. Jennifer Peterson has been working on medical textbooks! She recently completed a book chapter for an upcoming textbook, Cryosurgery and Cryotherapy, on CoolSculpting®, which includes the latest application of this fat-freezing technology – CoolSmooth™ for the outer thighs (saddlebags).
The chapter reviews all of the studies on the CoolSculpting device, how it works, areas that can be treated, and tips for optimizing treatment outcomes. In early April 2014, CoolSculpting was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of the inner and outer thighs. In the only published abstract to date, the new CoolSmooth applicator, designed specifically for the outer thigh, was tested in a clinical trial. 37 subjects completed the single-treatment study. The results:
• 86% were satisfied with their treatment
• 86% noticed visible fat reduction
• 89% would recommend to a friend
• 97% were likely to have a second treatment
Dr. Peterson, our RN’s and aestheticians have been performing the CoolSculpting procedure since it was introduced in 2011. We have just launched the new CoolSmooth treatment at both our offices. Call 713.850.0240 to set up your free consultation today.
