In The San Francisco Bay Area

CoolSculpting® Elite Specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area

At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists and team are experts in body-contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting® Elite.

What is CoolSculpting® Elite?

Certain areas of the body become more resistant to diet and exercise over time. This could be due to many different factors such as the natural aging process, genetics, and hormones. The result is areas of unwanted, stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of no matter how hard you try.

Whether you’ve been consistently living a healthy lifestyle or stuck in a vigorous cycle of fad diets and exercise because you’re short on time, CoolSculpting® Elite could be the solution you’ve been waiting for to jumpstart your body transformation.

The CoolSculpting® Elite fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. 

CoolSculpting® Elite is FDA-cleared to freeze and destroy fat cells in 9 difficult-to-lose areas:

  • Jawline
  • Under the chin
  • Upper arms
  • Back fact
  • Bra fat
  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Under the buttocks

There are some key benefits that everyone should know about CoolSculpting® Elite:

  • There's no downtime, surgery, or pain involved
  • It’s the safest and most effective fat elimination treatment on the market
  • Treatments are quick and usually last 35-90 minutes depending on area
  • CoolSculpting® Elite covers 18% more surface area than the legacy device
  • CoolSculpting is extremely safe with 8M+ treatments performed
  • Patients can see a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area

The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting. You’ll likely start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to discard fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

How does CoolSculpting® Elite work?

  • CoolSculpting® Elite uses a process called cryolipolysis, or what most call fat-freezing. Years of development and research went into this unique, patented treatment device 
  • Each body area being treated by the device is safely cooled in a controlled way as subcutaneous fat cells begin to freeze. This triggers apoptosis, which means cell death
  • Upon safely triggering fat-cell apoptosis, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells which can result in up to 20-25% reduction in a treated area

With the newest CoolSculpting® Elite device, there are two applicators per machine so that two areas can be treated at once for optimized efficiency. 

What are some expectations with CoolSculpting® Elite?

For most patients, two or more treatment sessions are recommended to ensure desired results and body-contouring goals are met. Keep in mind that a healthy lifestyle will need to be maintained during the treatment process to maximize and keep your results long-term.

Photographs will be taken before and after to track progress, so you can rest assured that your results will be maximized and noticeable. 

Our team will work with you personally during a complimentary consultation to assess your areas of focus and aesthetic goals. During the consultation, you will be able to address any questions you may have about the process, and you’ll receive a personalized treatment plan designed specifically for you.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
