CoolSculpting treats the fat that lies directly beneath the skin, leaving the skin unaffected. The area’s most commonly treated are the inner and outer thighs, abdomen and flanks, bra fat/back fat, under the chin and arms. Plastic Surgery Associates of SD has the newest technology of CoolSculpting to reduce treatment time and has minimal to no discomfort — see a live demonstration at this seminar.
