A Chat with Dr. Howard L. Rosenberg About CoolSculpting


What Made You Decide to Begin Offering CoolSculpting Treatments as a Service?

Many of our patients from San Mateo, Palo Alto and Burlingame wanted a nonsurgical alternative to getting rid of body fat. CoolSculpting is the proven solution to diet- and exercise-resistant fat without incisions, needles or anesthesia. It’s in-and-out approach is an excellent option for the people of San Mateo.

How Many People Are Licensed/ Trained to Perform CoolSculpting in San Mateo at LuminaSkin? What Went Into Becoming a “Certified CoolSculpting Practice?”

To perform CoolSculpting, LuminaSkin practitioners had to become certified by Zeltiq, the creators of the procedure.  As part of this training, we treated three staff members over the course of four sessions and completed Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting training “tracks.” I submitted before and after photos and documentation to Zeltiq as proof we’d completed the treatments. Furthermore, Garrett and Tatiana attended CoolSculpting University, Zeltiq’s two-day, educational seminar for practitioners of the procedure.

How Long Have You Been Doing CoolSculpting?

I was introduced to the CoolSculpting procedure in spring 2015, and after meeting the aforementioned requirements, we began performing CoolSculpting at our medical spa in San Mateo in January 2016.

What Do You Think Will Happen With CoolSculpting in the Future? Will It Be Available to Treat More Areas of the Body?

Zeltiq is already testing arm-specific applications of the procedure. This could help countless individuals get rid of the excess fat under the arms and around the shoulders. Only time will tell how expansive CoolSculpting may be applied in future treatments, but the arms are clearly coming soon.

Why Do You Think CoolSculpting Is a Beneficial Service for the People of San Mateo?

Regardless of mainstream media, nothing boosts confidence like natural beauty. Here at LuminaSkin, we seek to give patients an opportunity to experience natural beauty, and CoolSculpting is completely noninvasive, making it an excellent option for those who wish to avoid more complicated procedures. CoolSculpting allows us to eliminate subborn fat when diet and exercise have not produced results.

What’s the Best CoolSculpting Experience You’ve Had at LuminaSkin? How Did Your Staff Handle It?

Our best story actually comes from one of our staff members here at LuminaSkin. She was planning her wedding, and she chose to undergo the procedure. We felt her decision to let her co-workers care for her was one of the highest compliments any skin treatment center could receive. Before her wedding arrived, she was able to go down an entire dress size!

How Is LuminaSkin Different From Other Cosmetic Centers in San Mateo?

We believe our CoolSculpting patients need a sense of continuity, which helps our team monitor results and ensure treatment is completed appropriately. So, our physician’s assistance, Garrett, treats all of our CoolSculpting patients. She is one of the nation’s most accredited and extensively trained practitioners in cryolipolysis (the freezing of fat cells).

Also, we want the experience to be enjoyable. All our patients in San Mateo have full access to Netflix, free Wi-Fi, and snacks or meals. As a result, we can accommodate those who are in a rush after work or while the kids are in school.
