Despite our attention to proper diet and exercise, the flanks (or love handles) tend to be one of the most stubborn body areas to respond to our efforts. At Advanced Dermatology, our providers frequently field questions on how to improve love handles. This is one area where both women and men are often looking for improvement. Advanced Dermatology offers Coolsculpting by Zeltiq, which has the ability to substantially reduce local fat deposits using a completely non-invasive technique. By simply (and with minimal discomfort) cooling fatty tissue under the skin, Coolsculpting can help you see and achieve a noticeable reduction in these bulges within 2-3 months after a treatment session. There is no downtime and no restrictions on exercise or activity after treatment. Further improvements can be achieved with subsequent treatment sessions if needed.
