Body Contouring

Body contouring is a procedure that can reduce excess skin and fat from a variety of areas such as the chin, torso, chest, thighs and upper arms. We offer two non-surgical treatments - Kybella® treatments for the chin area and Coolsculpting® treatments for other areas of the body.

Kybella®

Kybella® is the first FDA-approved, injectable drug used to reduce the appearance of submental fat, more commonly known as a double chin. Before Kybella® was FDA approved, there were few options for submental fat: surgery or scarves. But now, a quick office procedure can help you lose your double chin and achieve a tighter, more contoured look without incisions or downtime.

  • Treats appearance of excess fat of the lower chin
  • Works by physically destroying fat cells with an enzyme
  • Optimal results may take a few weeks
  • Lasts for years

CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is the perfect way to contour your body by freezing away unwanted fat without pursuing any surgical procedures. CoolSculpting has been proven to be the safest and most effective treatment in getting rid of that stubborn fat that is not eliminated by diet and exercise alone.

  • Reduces soft “pinch-able“ fat in the belly, side flanks and thighs
  • Works by freezing fat cells
    • Decreases size of fatty areas and sculptsand smooths
  • Optimal results in 2-3 months
  • Not a weight loss procedure

A revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. The treatment requires no needles, no special diet, no supplements, no surgery and most importantly, no downtime. CoolSculpting® is safe, FDA approved and is an effective removal of little pockets of fat that are troublesome. You'll see results after one session.

CoolSculpting® technology

The technology behind CoolSculpting® was developed by Harvard University scientists after they observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea is that cold can selectively affect fat cells, called cryolipolysis, the proven science on which CoolSculpting® is based.

How to get started

CoolSculpting® is meant for people who are at their ideal body weight but who have defined trouble areas such as the lower belly or the sides of the waist. If you are interested in seeing one of our specialists for this treatment, your first step is a consultation appointment at our Dermatology office at the Heater Road building in Lebanon. After we have confirmed that you are a candidate, you can schedule a one-hour treatment session. Most patients see results within six to eight weeks after their treatment. You may come back for repeat visits if you wish. The results should be permanent as long as you do not gain weight.

We can talk with you about pricing during your consultation appointment. Insurance is not accepted for the CoolSculpting® treatment.
