Redwood Aesthetic Medicine is the only licensed and approved CoolSculpting provider in the Humboldt County area, and we are proud to offer the documented successful results of genuine Allergan CoolSculpting® fat-freezing technology.
What is CoolSculpting?
The unique CoolSculpting® fat-freezing technology is a nonsurgical, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots such as the abdomen, flanks, or under the chin in as little as one session.
What is stubborn fat?
Farewell treated fat cells
CoolSculpting is the state of the art in aesthetic fat-freezing body shaping. The technical name for it is cryolipolysis, which is just a science-y way to say fat freezing. Scientists and engineers at Allergan spent years developing the treatment, which features one-of-a-kind technology that quite literally freezes and kills fat cells. Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1-3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area. This allows for targeted smoothing and reshaping of trouble areas on the body.
Ready to take the next step?
For individuals with healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to reduce excess fat. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment. CoolSculpting® is for patients at or near their ideal body weight who want to reduce fat in one or more of the 9-FDA cleared treatment areas..

The Thermage system® is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that can smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. Thermage works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It’s you, just younger looking and more confident.
Over 10 years ago, Thermage® pioneered the way for radiofrequency treatments and has now been used in over a million treatments across 80 countries. Thermage® creates real, natural results that cannot be achieved from creams or lotions, and the convenience of treatments makes it easy to fit into even the busiest schedules. A revolutionary treatment for aging skin, Thermage® uses focused radio-frequency energy to stimulate and strengthen the collagen in your skin for a smoother, sleeker look that can help you feel years younger. The treatment process jumpstarts your body’s natural healing system, resulting in skin that is smoother, tighter and refreshed over time. Thermage® can improve the appearance of cellulite, and create more shapely contours. Thermage results are subtle and natural.
How Does Thermage® Work?
Thermage® consists of a four-step process:
Am I a Good Candidate for Thermage®?
During your consultation, our medical team will evaluate several factors such as your overall health, medical history, skin condition and cosmetic goals to determine if Thermage® is right for you.
Although Thermage® has a proven safety profile, individuals with cardiac pacemakers or other active implants may be advised to seek alternative forms of treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Thermage side effects are generally minimal and may include mild swelling or slight treatment discomfort. The Thermage machine does not involve any needles, injections, lasers or light, and therefore Thermage skin treatments are safe for all skin types.
Although major side effects are rare, our medical team will discuss all possible risks and complications to you prior to treatment. The Thermage skin tightening treatment is absolutely non-invasive, and requires no time off from work or life. Thermage skin treatments produce no damage to any surface structures of the skin and as such one is able to resume normal activities immediately after Thermage skin tightening treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Although it can take a few weeks for the body to produce new collagen, visible improvements are often seen after just one treatment and can last for up to six months. Individual results may vary, and our medical team will create a customized treatment plan for you to optimize your specific concerns.
