Welcome to Dr. Minh Dang's Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center. Our office is located at 6155 Stoneridge Drive, Suite 150, in Pleasanton, CA. Our clinic has been serving patients in the Bay Area since 2001. We offer general and cosmetic dermatology, with an emphasis in skin cancer surgery and management.
Dr. Dang is a board-certified Dermatologist, and a Mohs Micrographic Surgery Fellowship trained surgeon. She receives patient referrals from primary physicians and dermatologists throughout the East Bay Area and San Joaquin counties. She is highly regarded as an expert in her field.
The biggest trend in cosmetic surgery for 2012 and going into 2013 is the expansion of non-invasive body countouring technology, the best of which is Coolsculpting, which is now available at Dr. Minh Dang's. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical device that uses precisely controlled cooling to destroy fat cells, thereby eliminating unwanted love handles, bra rolls, and stomach fat.
Coolsculpting is a unique non-surgical treatment for removal of fat from localized pockets of excess fat. This non-invasive procedure represents an alternative to surgical liposuction by using a novel cooling technology that permanently removes fat cells from treated areas.
What are the most common areas to be treated?
The upper and lower abdomen, muffin tops, waist, brat fat, back fat, love handles, and "mommy pooches."
Are there any side effects from Coolsculpting?
We have seen some slight swelling afterward that lasts a few days post treatment, temporary numbness and tingling, and in some instances there can be more prolonged discomfort that may require pain medication. There are virtually no negative side effects.
What does Coolsculpting feel like?
There is a sensation of pulling that feels slightly uncomfortable for the first 5 to 10 minutes. Then it begins to numb from the chilling and is very comfortable.
How quickly do people see results?
Many report seeing changes in as little as 3 to 4 weeks. The full benefit will take as long as 60 to 90 days.
How long to results last?
Once the fat cells are frozen, killed and naturally eliminated by your body, the results are permanent. You can still gain weight in other areas if you over eat and don't continue to try to remain fit.
