Without the proper diet and exercise routine, achieving your ideal body can be difficult, to say the least.
However, there is another way, and it doesn’t require that you reduce your caloric intake or schedule extra training sessions. In fact, it’s completely painless, and you won’t even have to break a sweat. At Franklin Skin and Laser in Franklin, TN, we offer CoolSculpting® to help clients target and permanently eliminate stubborn fat cells through a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment process.
At Franklin Skin and Laser, we’ve been performing CoolSculpting® treatments for over ten years and are the number one independent provider in the middle Tennessee area. CoolSculpting® is the perfect option if you’re looking for a treatment that painlessly and non-invasively results in noticeable fat reduction. The treatment operates according to a process that Harvard-based scientists discovered and named cryolipolysis.
Cryolipolysis occurs when fat cells are frozen, crystallized, and die. Once fat cells experience cell death, they become bodily waste that must be removed via the lymphatic system. After your treatment, your lymphatic system will respond and gradually eliminate these fat cells as waste. You’ll notice steady improvements and gradual fat reduction in your treatment areas as it does.
A Fat Reduction Treatment
Before you undergo this treatment process, it’s important that you understand exactly what it is. CoolSculpting® is designed for fat reduction, not weight loss. It is a body contouring and sculpting treatment that can help clients sculpt specific areas and eliminate stubborn fat cells that don’t respond to a clean diet, exercise regimen, or even a healthy lifestyle.
Patients who have achieved their desired weight loss goals can schedule treatments to define and fine-tune their bodies, as can those who are already fit yet still have small pockets of stubborn fat, keeping them from reaching their ultimate physique goals. As a body contouring treatment, it works best when paired with a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine.
Maintaining Your Results Long-Term
The results rely on your commitment to a healthy lifestyle since post-treatment weight gain can cause specific fat cells remaining in your treatment area to expand, which will negatively affect your results. Avoiding weight gain after your treatment is the only way to ensure the longevity of your results.
The Treatment Areas
This body contouring treatment can target the most common areas with stubborn fat, but at the same time, it can treat virtually any area of the body. The most common treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks, jawline, the area beneath the chin, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, back, banana roll at the buttocks, and bra fat.
At our office, we offer an accelerated treatment option called Dual CoolSculpting®. During treatment, two devices with two applicators target different areas of the body simultaneously to cut the treatment time in half. This accelerated treatment option eliminates the need to schedule multiple sessions to target different body areas.
Instead, it enables you to reach your goals by eliminating stubborn fat from separate areas in a single treatment plan. Dual CoolSculpting® is the perfect option for clients with more than one problem area with stubborn fat cells that remain unresponsive to diet and exercise.
Enhancing Your Treatment Results With Skin Tightening Treatments
This treatment is the perfect option for those who want to target and permanently eliminate stubborn fat cells. It doesn’t tighten loose skin but will significantly reduce the total fat volume in the target area. One way we can enhance your treatment results is with our skin-tightening devices.
These devices can stimulate natural collagen and elastin production in the area treated by the CoolSculpting® device. We offer Morpheus 8 and Exilis® treatments that use different techniques to force the body to react with a healing response that will result in tighter, toned and firmer skin.
Enhancing Your Treatment Results With CoolTone® and EMSCULPT®
Excess body fat prevents visible muscle definition. However, if you notice that, as you lose fat, your muscles aren’t as defined as you would like, there is a solution to tighten and tone the muscles in your treatment area, and it doesn’t require that you spend more time in the gym. We also offer CoolTone® and EMSCULPT®, two treatments that use magnetic muscle stimulation to force the muscles into involuntary yet powerful contractions.
These contractions are strong and intense and surpass what your brain could tell your muscles to do in a normal workout. For instance, if you choose to target your abdominal muscles, a single session will be the equivalent of thousands of sit-ups, but you’ll never have to do a single crunch to see those results.
The Benefit of Muscle-Toning Treatments
Scheduling CoolTone® or EMSCULPT® sessions alongside your fat reduction treatment plan enables you to experience maximum results. We can provide you with more details about these treatments at your initial consultation and determine whether you would benefit from adding EMSCULPT® or CoolTone® sessions to your treatment plan.
What To Expect From the Treatment
CoolSculpting® treatments are non-invasive, non-surgical, and virtually painless. You won’t need any topical numbing cream to comfortably experience the treatment but instead can spend your time relaxing, reading, working remotely, or watching TV. Once we situate you in a treatment room, you’ll lie on a comfortable treatment bench, and we will apply the treatment pad to your target area.
As we activate the device, you’ll initially feel an intense cold sensation as the device delivers freezing temperatures to the fat cells. The sensation will subside momentarily, and the treatment area will feel numb. Depending on your ultimate treatment goals, you may benefit from treating one area or multiple during the same session. After your treatment is over, you can resume your daily activities and won’t have to plan around any downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Traditional hair removal methods, like shaving, waxing, and plucking, all cut, shorten, or remove the actual hair from the follicle for temporary results. After a few days or weeks, the hair grows back, and you have to repeat the treatment process to maintain your results. Laser hair removal treatments are so effective because they work differently.
The laser energy emitted by the device is attracted to pigment. It targets the pigment in the hair follicle, heating the follicle and damaging it so that it stops growing hair. After completing the recommended number of sessions, you will notice a significant reduction in hair growth. This device can help clients achieve their desired results, that being hair-free and smoother skin, without negatively impacting the surrounding skin in any way.
Are the treatments painful?
The Candela GentleMax Pro® is known for delivering a comfortable laser hair removal treatment. We will take every step to promote your comfort throughout the treatment, and with that in mind, you can schedule your appointments with confidence, knowing that you won’t have to endure significant discomfort to achieve hair-free skin.
What areas can it treat?
The Candela GentleMax Pro® laser device can help clients eliminate unwanted hair from virtually anywhere on the face and body. Some of the most common areas include the arms, legs, back, chest, and face. We can even remove unwanted hair from intimate areas for men and women and perform full-body treatments. You’ll have the option of treating one or multiple areas throughout your treatment plan, and we can customize your treatments as needed.
What kind of results can I expect?
With each treatment you schedule, you’ll notice less hair in the treatment area. You’ll also experience the surprising benefit of laser hair removal: skin rejuvenation. The laser energy can help rejuvenate the skin in the treatment area as it targets and destroys hair within the hair follicles by increasing natural collagen and elastin production.
How long do treatments take?
One of the many benefits of the Candela GentleMax Pro® laser system is that it can deliver quick treatments. You can schedule your treatments and get back to your daily activities in less than an hour. Typical treatments can take 30 minutes. Once we learn more about the size and number of areas that you want to treat, we can give you a better idea of how long to plan for your treatment sessions.
How many treatments do I need?
The total number of treatments you will need to achieve your desired results will depend on many factors, including the number of hair follicles in an active growth phase in the treatment area at your time of treatment as well as the size of the area or the number of areas you want to treat. Once we learn more about the areas you want to treat, we can customize your treatment plan accordingly.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we can give you a better idea of how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired results. We offer seven package sessions as well as complementary touchup treatments for up to two years after completing those sessions. We can give you more information about what your treatment plan may look like and our complementary touchup sessions at your consultation.
Who is a candidate?
Because this device can treat a wide range of skin types and tones, most clients will qualify for treatment. However, laser hair removal requires pigmentation. The laser light targets pigment, so if there is no pigment in the hair follicle, the treatment will not be effective, and the laser device won’t effectively destroy the follicle.
For that reason, certain hair colors may not respond to the treatment process. Our complimentary consultations provide the perfect avenue for you to learn more about laser hair removal and discuss your desired treatment areas. Then we can evaluate your hair and skin color in person to confirm your treatment eligibility and move forward with the process.
