Phoenix Cool Sculpting
As a trained medical engineer, Dr. Michael Carlton knows how to use technology to ease the body's pain, help a person overcome addiction, or even just shed a few pounds. But his passion for medicine didn't spring from a fascination with technology; rather, it was his work with the poor and under-served in cultures around the world that shaped a socially conscious approach to healing.
In his efforts to promote healthy living, Dr. Carlton founded Phoenix Cool Body. The clinic uses Zeitiq's CoolSculpting system, a non-invasive technique designed by a Harvard scientist to help isolate and destroy fat and cellulite that's otherwise resistant to exercise and stern finger-wagging. Targeted areas such as the stomach, buttocks, and thighs are chilled to 38 degrees Fahrenheit—the trigger point for apoptosis, or cell death. As the body repairs itself, the damaged cells are expelled over the course of two-to-four months. Despite the drawn-out process, treatments require no downtime. In addition to CoolSculpting, the center treats other aesthetic concerns with Venus Freeze and Vasershape treatments.
