Revolutionary technology Cryolipolysis™, the CoolSculpting® system’s treatment, literally freezes fat cells without damaging the surrounding issues of the rest of the body for long lasting results.

Consultation & Procedure

No needles, surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

The Coolsculpting® procedure is non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.

Results and Patient experience may vary.

Sit Back, Relax and Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat

FDA Cleared Revolutionary Technology is Safe and Effective


CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates those dead cells leaving a more sculpted you. The results are long term. This revolutionary technology is called Cryolipolysis™.

 Cosmetic and Dermatology Center

Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Steven Swengel, oversees all CoolSculpting® treatments to insure effective results for all patients.

What to Expect

No needles, no lasers, no surgery, no anesthesia and most importantly, no recovery time.

The results are dramatic!

It’s Easy

The CoolSculpting® procedure is comfortable for most patients. You can read, work on your computer, watch a movie, or listen to your favorite music while you relax during your procedure.

The one-hour treatment uses a vacuum like device to pull in your problem areas around your middle, thighs, or back area between two cooling plates. The vacuum holds your skin and fat cells in place while the plates are activated. During the process, only your fat cells are frozen and destroyed. Your skin, nerves and blood vessels are perfectly fine. The fat cells die a slow death over a 6 to 8 week period.

It’s Fast

For each problem area, the process takes about an hour. Most people treat multiple areas so it can take up to a few hours. At Refined Dermatology, we have two CoolSculpting® machines so your treatments are done in half the time!

It is expected that you will see results in the treated area within 2 to 3 months. Your clothes will feel better, fit better, and look great.

You can typically return to your routine activities on the same day as your procedure. After your treatment, you are on your way to getting rid of your stubborn fat for good. 

Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle after your treatment will help you experience full results.

Real People. Real Results.


Results and patient experience may vary. Multiple treatments may require multiple sessions or visits.

Your Questions Answered

You are a good candidate if you have noticeable bulges in certain areas you would like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for you if you have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. You can request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you. We look forward to talking to you.
The price for CoolSculpting® procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help you create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting® session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
You might be wondering, where does the fat go after the procedure? Shortly after your procedure, you will be exactly the same size. It is not like a weight loss procedure where the fat is gone instantaneously. It actually takes about 6 to 8 weeks for the damaged cells to be removed. In actuality, the fat is the same size after the procedure, but over the next several weeks, it begins shrinking. Approximately 20 percent of your fat cells are killed permanently, so it will take 2-3 weeks before you start seeing the results. The final result may take up to 2-3 months. It is important that you understand this isn’t a weight loss procedure. It is shrinking or sculpting certain areas of your body. So you do still need to stick to a regular diet and exercise routine for losing or maintaining weight
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
The CoolSculpting procedure® is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thighs. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
Minimal Risks. Minimal Side Effects. One of the great benefits of CoolSculpting® is that there are minimal risks and side effects involved. As with all medical procedures, CoolSculpting® does have some minor side effects. The most common ones are soreness, bruising, and numbness of the treatment area. During the procedure, you may experience deep pulling, pinching, and slight pain. After the procedure, you may experience redness, bruising, and minor tingling in the treatment area, lasting a few minutes to a few hours. Many patients experience a dulling of sensation in the treated area lasting one to four weeks. The amount of soreness really depends on the person. Most often, it isn’t enough to cause you any real problems. CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared, safe, and effective. You can feel safe and confident this is a procedure we endorse for our Refined Dermatology practice.
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting® treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting® procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.

Dr. Swengel has an aesthetic eye that you need to look your best. I found what I was looking for. Happy, happy, happy.
Abby, Los Gatos
I was really nervous to try botox because I have seen so many “frozen” faces. On a friends recommendation, I tried Dr. Swengel and I’m very happy with my results. I can still make expressions but the lines in my forehead and around my eyes are gone.
