If you haven’t noticed by now we are more than thrilled to be offering DualSculpting™ at Germain Dermatology. DualSculpting™ is a simple concept- ‘Dual’ CoolSculpting™, however it is not yet widely used, and we are very excited to be the only practice in the Charleston with this cutting edge ability. With DualSculpting™ we are able to treat two areas with CoolSculpting® simultaneously, reducing treatment times in half! No need to come in twice as many times or stay twice as long for both love handles, or both thighs! 



CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq is an FDA cleared technology that uses cold therapy to freeze and destroy fat cells permanently, no surgery required. Zeltiq uses precisely targeted cold therapy in a comfortable treatment room. Most people ask, ‘Well if you’re freezing fat, then why can’t I just put a 20-lb bag of ice on my muffin top?’, however, Zeltiq is not actually freezing the fat but taking away the energy from the fat cell, causing it to die over a period of 2-4 months. It crystallizes the lipids in the fat cells causing the slow breakdown of the cells and then is released through your body’s normal metabolic processes. It’s the painless “cool” new way to get rid of fat in specific areas. 
This process is intended for those who are at a healthy weight but just cannot seem to work off certain problem areas. Sound ‘cool’? Attend our DualSculpting™ Night on July 11th, 6pm, for live demonstrations, Q&A with Dr. Germain herself as well as appetizers and libations (*Event is free, but reservations prefered) or call us today to see if CoolSculpting™ or DualSculpting™ is right for you at (843) 881-4440.
