Coolsculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that requires minimal downtime or recovery. With an established track record for safety, Coolsculpting reduces fat deposits by freezing the fat cells deep within the skin. Within weeks of treatment, the fat is resorbed by the body; leading to a slimming effect.

Stretch Mark Treatment
There are three different types of stretch marks that can be improved with laser therapy. 1) Red or pink stretch marks are often new and are responsive to pulsed dye laser treatment; 2) White Indented stretch marks are atrophic and are best treated with fractional CO2 laser; and 3) White stretch marks without atrophy are best improved using superficial-depth fractional laser.
