Physicians Must Supervise CoolSculpting Treatment, States Newport Beach Dermatologist

Dr. Nancy L. Silverberg Details the Factors That Make a Medical Professional Qualified to Own and Operate CoolSculpting Technology

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2015) - Hailed as a revolutionary method for spot reducing pockets of stubborn fat, Newport Beach dermatologist Nancy L. Silverberg, MD says CoolSculpting® can be an excellent way to enhance body contour without surgery. She says the non-invasive technology can make the procedure enticing for a wide range of patients due to the numerous benefits. However, she advises, not everyone is qualified to perform CoolSculpting® treatments. Dr. Silverberg provided details into the requirements practitioners must follow to offer this procedure. She says she hopes the information will offer a helpful resource to individuals considering this cosmetic enhancement.

Only licensed physicians can own CoolSculpting® technology, Dr. Silverberg notes. She says the FDA regulates the equipment as a Class II medical device, and anyone utilizing the technology must be a licensed physician or supervised by one. The Newport Beach dermatologist says that some patients may mistakenly believe that CoolSculpting® can be safely performed by nearly anyone since the treatment is non-invasive. However, training is required to operate CoolSculpting® technology, and she advises individuals considering this treatment to seek out an experienced, board certified dermatologist or a similarly skilled individual to complete the process.

Dr. Silverberg says the rules regulating the use of CoolSculpting® are designed to help protect patients and achieve the best possible outcome. She encourages individuals to research qualified medical professionals prior to scheduling a consultation, and to choose a practice that prioritizes safety, training, and results. In the right hands, Dr. Silverberg adds, CoolSculpting® typically can provide natural-looking results with few side effects and little to no downtime.
