Zel Skin & Laser Specialists® Announces CoolSculpting® with Next Generation CoolAdvantage™ Applicator

Clinic is one of the first in the nation to use new, more advanced applicator

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (October 17, 2016) – CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses a controlled cooling temperature applicator to effectively target and remove fat by altering it. CoolAdvantage is the next generation in applicators in CoolSculpting systems. It delivers colder temperatures to provide a larger cooling area, greater patient comfort and shorter treatment time.

“The CoolAdvantage applicator is a leap forward in CoolSculpting procedures,” said Dr. Brian Zelickson. “We’re one of the first five facilities responsible for CoolSculpting clinical trials and among the first providers of this non-invasive treatment in the country.”

Mayo Clinic-trained Dr. Brian Zelickson, one of the most recognized and respected dermatologists worldwide, leads the Plymouth clinic. He has extensive research experience, including 15 medical patents and more than 70 medical journal publications.

As part of the introduction of this new technology, Zel Skin is holding a “CoolEvent” on November 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Plymouth clinic at 2 Carlson Parkway, just off of Highway 394. The event will showcase CoolSculpting, and include a live patient demonstration using the new CoolAdvantage applicator.

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared. It is available for the non-invasive treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, and flank. The CoolSculpting treatment is available at Zel Skin’s Plymouth and Edina clinics.

FAQs about Minnesota Monthly’s Best Doctors Survey

Who picks the doctors?
Their peers. In March, Professional Research Services contacted more than 10,000 licensed doctors in the 11-county metro area, as well as Olmsted County, based on a list provided by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice. Respondents were asked to log on to a secure website and name up to three doctors (other than themselves) in each specialty category. Physicians who received the highest number of votes are reflected by specialty in the Best Doctors list.

How were the specialties selected?
The American Board of Medical Specialties recognizes 24 member boards that grant certification in specialized areas of medical practices. Some of those member boards grant certification in specialties as well. Our staff used those specialties and subspecialties as a starting point for creating physician categories, though board certification was not a requirement for being named.

Does advertising affect the poll?
No. Doctors are not added to or removed from the list based on their or their employers’ advertising history with the magazine.
