What is Dualsculpting?


No doubt most people are familiar with CoolSculpting – the #1 noninvasive body contouring procedure that freezes and destroys stubborn fat without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. But have you heard of DualSculpting Reston? It is an advanced CoolSculpting approach that allows individuals to treat more fat in less time.

Continue reading as we answer all of your pressing CoolSculpting questions, including: What is DualSculpting Reston? How does it compare to CoolSculpting? What are the benefits?


CoolSculpting Reston is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that utilizes controlled cooling technology to target unwanted fat cells beneath the skin. In the coming weeks and months, the destroyed fat cells are gradually cleared from the body via the lymphatic system.

Patients can begin to note visible slimming and toning in 4-6 weeks. Final results are usually evident by 12 weeks and can produce up to a 24% fat reduction in the treated area.


During a CoolSculpting treatment in Northern Virginia, an applicator is secured to one treatment site for 35-60 minutes. If an individual is treating a bilateral part of the body, such as the flanks, thighs, or arms, that would mean one applicator would be secured to the right side for 35-60 minutes and then one applicator would be secured to the left side for another 35-60 minutes.

Accordingly, treatment of both sides could take 70-120 minutes.


It’s not uncommon for patients to ask: What is this unique CoolSculpting technique? DualSculpting Reston is an advanced CoolSculpting technique in which two devices are used to simultaneously treat multiple areas.

In the case of love handles, one device would be positioned to the patient’s right side with an applicator secured to the right flank and another device would be positioned to the patient’s left side with an applicator secured to the left flank.

By targeting areas at the same time, DualSculpting cuts treatment time in half to maximize results and minimize inconvenience.


DualSculpting allows patients to reshape their bodies more efficiently and effectively and return to their busy lives sooner.

More specifically, it decreases the number of office visits needed to treat multiple areas; halves treatment time; and ensures symmetrical results because both sides of the body are being treated at the exact same time.
