CoolSculpting is the new, cutting-edge, innovative fat reduction technique designed to sculpt and contour your body by freezing away stubborn fat cells without going under the knife. The technology includes the use of controlled cooling to essentially freeze and kill fat cells that can later be flushed naturally from the body to reveal a slimmer physique. At Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, TX, and under the careful control of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thornwell Parker, we employ the use of this state-of-the-art procedure to help you meet your aesthetic goals.

"I got my first hydrofacial. Amazing!!!!! Life is too short to not be good to myself so I intend on making this a regular occurrence! My friend got one too and holy moly, the before and after pictures speak for themselves. Skin care to this degree was new for him but Felicia took her time to make sure he was comfortable throughout the entire process. Already looking forward to my April hydrofacial!"- R.B. / Yelp / Feb 15, 2019
"I was diagnosed with a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my shoulder and found Dr. Parker via his website. He was very thorough in answering all my concerns and questions, making me feel comfortable about the Mohs procedure. The results were better then I could have ever expected. The scar isn't even noticeable and people would never guess I ever had the Mohs procedure done!! Between Dr. Parker, the nurses and the delightful front staff, I felt very welcomed and treated just life family!"- A. / Wellness / Oct 25, 2018
"Dr. Parker is such an amazing doctor and does wonderful work. I had surgery in 2017 on my nose and you can't even see where he did the surgery. I would recommend anybody in the Dallas area to go see him for Mohs surgery."- A.W. / Wellness / Oct 24, 2018
Although this minimally invasive procedure has proven successful on both men and women of varying ages, those who are most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Experience stubborn fat patches that do not respond to diet
- Live a healthy and active lifestyle
- Are not interested in or do not qualify for surgical procedures
- Have healthy expectations for the outcome of their treatment
After your consultation with Dr. Parker, or a member of our team, and agreeing on a CoolSculpting treatment plan, your procedure appointment will be scheduled. During your appointment, a gel pad and CoolSculpting applicator will be applied to the treatment area and controlled cooling will begin. The cooling, delivered through the applicator, will begin to target and freeze the fat cells. As you probably can guess, the treatment can be rather cold, but this typically does not cause great discomfort. As the applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat into the treatment area, you may feel a slight tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.
What to Expect
Since the CoolSculpting procedure is entirely nonsurgical and minimally invasive, returning to daily activities following treatment is typical. In most cases, you can return to work or school immediately following your appointment. Side effects of the procedure may include redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, and tenderness of the treatment site. These side effects are usually temporary and subside in the hours and days following your procedure. You can expect to see results in as little as three weeks, while you will see the most dramatic and obvious results between one and three months after your CoolSculpting treatment.
