How SkinMD Combines *CoolSculpting & Venus Legacy Skin Tightening to Give Patients Optimal and Enhanced Fat-Reduction and Body Contouring Results They Desire.
History shows that every now and then when things appear to be total opposites, they can be combined to create a truly extraordinary result. There is lots of evidence all around us that, with the proper vision and knowledge, odd-sounding combinations can be wildly synergistic.
For the very latest in unique and unusual couplings, we want to introduce you to a new, “stackable” approach to fat reduction and body contouring. It’s an amazing treatment package offered exclusively by physician-owned and operated SkinMD, called Fire and Ice.
We know what you are thinking! How on earth does something that heats up the skin work together with something that freezes your skin to get you the slimmer looking body you desire? Pull up a chair, turn off your social media alerts, and spend a few minutes here with SkinMD’s Dr. Flashner and his team of experienced Registered Nurses and Aestheticians, leaders in the field of non-invasive aesthetic rejuvenation, as they talk to you about the science behind this fascinating, and hugely beneficial, procedure.
Let’s start by discussing each element in the Fire and Ice fat-reduction and body contouring treatment separately, because, in fact, when used independently, each has equal power and usefulness in the battle against your body’s fat cells and in uncovering a shapelier you. (Not nearly as much potential for fat burning and body sculpting as when they are combined…but we’ll get to that discussion in just a minute!)
What is CoolSculpting?
“Ice” stands for one of the most sought-after treatments for removing the body’s fat cells – CoolSculpting, which is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure with more than 3.5 million treatments performed worldwide, according to CoolSculpting.com.
Due to its popularity, or what we like to call “cool” factor, it’s likely you have some previous knowledge of CoolSculpting. Whether you have heard the buzz about CoolSculpting from celebrities like Khloe Kardashian, Debra Messing, and Molly Sims, who are outspoken about their support of the treatment, or you have seen firsthand the transformation process of a friend or family member who has been treated at SkinMD, then you are no doubt wondering if freezing your fat would also be a perfect solution for your double chin, turtle neck, or muffin top.
Across the boards, SkinMD’s CoolSculpting patients always have two things in common: Number one, they have been completely exasperated by stubborn fat that no amount of good nutrition or intense exercise has ever gotten rid of. You know what we’re talking about right? That inch (or more) you can pinch from your stomach, above your hips, under your bra line, behind your arms, from your inner and outer thighs, and around the glutes, just to name a few of those problem zones.
And, number two, they would really prefer not to go under the knife to look and feel their best. CoolSculpting technology has provided a non-invasive, easy, and pain-free solution for these men and women to reduce fat cells in those trouble spots. We’re sure you want to know how CoolSculpting works, so here is a quick summary:
• CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to gently and effectively target and kill only fat cells, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue
• After the treatment, your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the dead fat cells in the areas that were targeted
• Within three months, you will see and feel the results – a 25% reduction in fat cells in the treatment area
We know this sounds like a too-good-to-be-true simple process for something so astonishingly beneficial, but it truly is this effortless to freeze away your fat cells.
What is Venus Legacy?
Now, let’s bring on the “Fire,” which refers to a treatment that uses state-of-the-art Venus Legacy technology to manipulate your skin tissue with heat. This non-invasive treatment uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields and a unique feature called VariPulse to produce a mild, comforting pulsing pressure that feels like you’re a getting a heated massage, while, in reality, the machine is stimulating new collagen and increasing lymphatic flow to get you the body you’ve always wanted.
The Venus Legacy is the ultimate non-surgical body shaping solution and may be the right fit for you if you are looking to:
• Soften your deep wrinkles and diminish your fine lines
• Contour your stubborn fat pockets
• Reduce volume and tighten your skin to create a slimmer silhouette
• Tighten your abdomen for a flatter, more defined waistline
• Shape and lift your buttocks, and smooth and tighten your thighs
Just like CoolSculpting, Venus Treatments are extremely popular. More than 3,000,000 patients a year enjoy the Venus Legacy experience. These patients include not only the rich and famous worldwide, but also Massachusetts men and women like you who have made it part of their everyday beauty routine because it is safe, provides rapid results and is relaxing and pain-free. As important, the therapy requires no downtime, so you can come into SkinMD for a Venus Legacy treatment, and leave 30 minutes later to get to your spin class, return to work, or meet your friends for a smoothie.
Again, we understand you are thinking, “How does this incredible treatment work?” Well, it starts with the Venus Legacy™ radio frequency which causes a thermal reaction in the tissue that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This works to increase collagen and elastin fibers, which results in tighter, smoother skin. This process also works to break down the volume of fat cells in the treatment area, which helps to give the body a slimmer, more contoured shape. But what truly distinguishes the Venus Legacy™ is the advanced VariPulse™ technology. This is an adjustable pulsed suction feature gently pulling the skin upward. This allows for the radio frequency energy to travel even deeper into the skin. In addition to triggering even better cellulite reduction and body contouring, it also stimulates healthy circulation.
Fire and Ice from SkinMD
Now, for the hotly anticipated big finale of this discussion – let’s combine “Fire and Ice” and talk about the magic that happens when we use CoolSculpting, a fat freezing and removal treatment, together with Venus Legacy, a skin tightening and body contouring therapy, on our patients. There are many, many reasons why SkinMD has decided to offer this combined fat-reduction and body contouring approach to our clients, including:
1. Moves along the dead fat cells much faster. CoolSculpting freezes and kills fat cells that your body then must get rid of through the lymphatic system. The pulsing and warm pressure of the Venus Legacy manipulates the skin tissue and will stimulate the removal of the dead fat as well as reduce any puffiness you may have had as a result of the CoolSculpting.
2. Tightens the areas where fat has been removed. When you reduce your fat cells by 25% in any given area with CoolSculpting, there is the potential that what is left behind is saggy skin. That’s why your SkinMD patient coordinator will most likely recommend that, after you “Ice” your fat, you return the following week to “Fire” up your skin in the same areas to ensure a tighter, leaner look.
3. Accelerates and enhances results. Combining CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy speeds up the healing process and improves the look and feel of your skin in a much shorter time period. The full result of your fat freezing treatments typically takes about 12 weeks because the body will gradually get rid of the dead fat. But when you follow up your CoolSculpting with the fire of the Venus Legacy, you can see and feel results as quickly as four weeks from the original treatment.
If you’ve been researching other Med Spas and skin rejuvenation and laser centers, you may be wondering why you haven’t ever heard of a combined treatment for optimal body sculpting results, like Fire and Ice. It’s because SkinMD is the only group in the Boston area that is offering this synergistic approach.
Over a year ago we started partnering these two treatments together because we are 100% committed to getting our clients their best results. As Doctors and medically trained practitioners, we uniquely understand the physiological reasons why using CoolSculpting in conjunction with Venus Legacy will get our clients as close as possible to the physique they desire.
As discussed above, the primary purpose of CoolSculpting is to break down and remove body fat, but it is not designed to tighten, firm or tone the skin. Conversely, Venus Legacy can make you look leaner through its unique heating and skin manipulation process; however, this is not a fat loss solution. But, now, exclusively at SkinMD in Massachusetts, you can have both the fat reduction benefits of CoolSculpting and the skin tightening results of Venus Legacy for a complete treatment to transformation experience.

• A head to toe assessment
• Detailed explanation of specific solutions that could be right for you
By taking this in-depth and thoughtful approach, we will be able to assess if you are a good candidate for Fire and Ice. In contrast to some in our industry who are focused on simply getting your business and your money, our professionals are going to explain to you the areas where the treatment will make a difference and those areas that we think you may not see results.

Having confidence that your provider is being truthful and real with you is obviously critical when you are making important decisions that will affect your body for the long-term. One of the most important things we share with our clients is that the Fire and Ice procedure is just the first step (albeit significant) towards feeling, looking and being your best self. Inevitably, the treatment should motivate you to be healthier in all areas of your life so that you can continue to reap the rewards of the therapy.
Finally, we have such a strong belief in this dual approach to your fat loss, that we do everything in our power to help you access Fire and Ice for yourself. SkinMD offers affordable payment options and interest-free financing through CareCredit for those eligible.
