Cool Technology. Even Cooler Results.

Did you know: CoolSculpting is now FDA cleared for treating inner and outer thighs backs fat, abdomen and stomach bulges as well as love handles and flanks. We can also treat upper arms and with KYBELLA and we can now reduce double chins and other small fat deposits.


You exercise. You eat right. But some stubborn fat bulges are immune to diet and exercise. You don’t feel as confident in your own skin as you should. Or could.

Dr. Binstock offers CoolSculpting, a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body, in our San Francisco and Mill Valley Offices. No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no surgery. And most importantly, no downtime. It’s safe, FDA-cleared, effective, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. The benefits can actually rival those previously attainable by liposuction alone.

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for reducing fat deposits in the upper and lower abdomen, muffin top,  love handles and flanks, inner and outer thighs, and is also effective for upper arms, and back fat reduction.

9 out of 10 people had an undeniable reduction of fat after just one treatment.*

How much does CoolSculpting cost? How many treatments will I need?

The price for CoolSculpting varies, depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals. Dr. Binstock would need to assess you in person to help estimate the cost. Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but you may appreciate even more fat reduction with additional treatments.

Are CoolSculpting results permanent? How long do results last?

CoolSculpting results are lasting, as long as you maintain your healthy lifestyle. The fat cells that are eliminated from CoolSculpting do not return.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of and are within 15-20 pounds of their ideal weight. Dr. Binstock will determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.


CoolSculptingThe revolutionary technology behind CoolSculpting was born from the simple observation that children who ate a lot of popsicles had dimpling in their cheeks due to a loss of fat from the excessive exposure to cold.

This idea led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.


CoolSculptingCoolSculpting is the proven non-surgical fat reduction treatment that delivers undeniable results. It’s FDA-cleared, safe and backed by clinical testing. You can lose that stubborn fat without special diets, surgery, supplements or downtime.

CoolSculpting works best on those who are within 1-20 pounds of their target weight and enjoy an active lifestyle but can’t seem to lose pockets of stubborn fat around their middle. It is not a silver bullet for obesity, it’s a solution for reclaiming the slimmer version of yourself when diet and exercise aren’t enough.

With more than 140,000 treatments performed worldwide, CoolSculpting is proven safe and effective for getting you back the body you deserve.
