Our Fort Worth, Texas practice offers CoolSculpting, the popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment, and we can also shrink the time the procedure takes by using 2 machines simultaneously. CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA to reduce fat in various areas of the body, including the abdomen, the inner and outer thighs, and under the chin.

CoolSculpting Before-and-After Photos
A Customized Procedure
Dr. Camp listens to the concerns patients describe during their consultation and recommends specific treatment plans based on their discussion. Good candidates for CoolSculpting are at, or near, a healthy weight but want to tone areas of stubborn fat. CoolSculpting applicators are designed for specific treatment areas, such as the abdomen and inner and outer thighs.
The CoolSculpting machine uses suction to draw the fatty area into the applicator, which consists of 2 cooling panels. These panels deliver targeted cooling to the fat cells, which causes them to freeze without damaging surrounding tissues.
Most patients remain fairly comfortable during the procedure. Some scroll through a tablet or smart phone, others may read, and some even take a short nap. At the end of the cooling process, Dr. Camp or an assistant massages the treated area to smooth and soften the chilled fatty tissue.
What is DualSculpting™?
Having 2 CoolSculpting machines enables Dr. Camp to treat multiple areas simultaneously. A CoolSculpting treatment typically takes about an hour per area, but concerns such as “love handles” require 2 treatments — one for each side. So patients who want to treat areas like love handles or their upper and lower abdomen can complete their treatments all at once, rather than separately.
What is the CoolAdvantage™ Applicator?
Treatment times can be shortened even more with the CoolAdvantage applicator, which can be customized for treating the flanks, abdomen, or the inner thighs. Patients tell us the procedures — which take only about 35 minutes, instead of an hour per area — are even more comfortable than previous CoolSculpting treatments.
What is the CoolMini™?
CoolSculpting is versatile enough to address many treatment areas, including fat under the chin, via the CoolMini applicator. The fat in this area causes the appearance of a double chin. For many people, it is an inherited trait and has nothing to do with being overweight. The CoolMini is an excellent treatment option for younger patients whose skin retains most of its elasticity, as the skin will shrink to fit the neck’s slimmer contour following a CoolSculpting procedure.
The CoolMini fits snugly under the chin and, like other CoolSculpting treatments, involves virtually no discomfort during the session. If you are concerned about fat below the chin, you may also want to consider KYBELLA® injections.
The clinically proven science behind CoolSculpting is a process called Cryolipolysis®. It’s based on the fact that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than those of skin and surrounding tissues. Harvard scientists discovered the Cryolipolysis process years ago when they observed that children sucking on popsicles had dimpled cheeks. That led to the research resulting in the FDA-approved CoolSculpting procedure.
Dr. Camp is dedicated to offering patients the most advanced procedures that are clinically proven and provide consistent results. In some cases, patients choose to undergo liposuction because the results are immediate and more customizable.
There is no downtime following a CoolSculpting treatment, meaning you can return to work or other normal daily activities immediately after leaving our practice. There is usually some redness in the treatment area. Results appear gradually over several weeks as the fat cells die and are naturally absorbed and eliminated from the body. Some patients may see desired results after a single treatment, but in many cases a follow-up treatment is scheduled to achieve optimal results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The price of CoolSculpting varies from patient to patient depending on the number and location of treatment areas. The number of treatment sessions, which is usually based on a patient’s ultimate goals, will also affect the total CoolSculpting cost. Dr. Camp tailors personalized treatment plans in an effort to meet patients’ aesthetic goals and their budgets.
Are the results permanent?
Once fat cells have been frozen and destroyed by CoolSculpting, they are eliminated from the body through its natural metabolic process. Those fat cells are gone for good.

So, can I still gain weight after CoolSculpting?
Yes, but it may be distributed more evenly throughout the body. One of the benefits of CoolSculpting is that it often motivates patients to remain at or near their ideal weight through exercise and diet.
What areas of the body does CoolSculpting treat?
The procedure is cleared by the FDA to treat stubborn fat bulges in many areas of the body. Those include submental fat (the area below the chin), the inner and outer thighs, the upper and lower abdominal areas, the flanks (love handles), along with “bra fat,” back fat, and fat underneath the buttocks.Back to Top
