Ideal Candidate for Fat Reduction

If you’re within 20 pounds of your goal weight and have stubborn areas of fat that diet and exercise can’t get rid of, then fat reduction might be right for you. While the fat reduction is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, please note that it is NOT a weight loss solution.

Areas Fat Reduction Can Treat

Our non-surgical liposuction alternatives can be effective in these areas of the body:


Non-invasive fat reduction is able to address trouble spots in the midsection such as the upper abdomen, lower abdomen and flanks (love handles). 


Target stubborn fat on the legs in areas such as the inner thighs and above the knees with non-surgical fat reduction. 

Back & Arms

Fat reduction treatments can be a great solution for the upper arms, bra line and underarm area. 


Submental (chin) fat is a concern for many. Improve your facial profile with non-invasive fat reduction of the chin.

Fat Reduction Treatments We Offer 

CoolSculpting® Elite in Grand Rapids, MI

CoolSculpting® Elite freezes fat cells and then your body naturally eliminates them. CoolSculpting® is the number one choice for non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring not only at the Centre for Pure Skin but worldwide because it’s so effective. CoolSculpting® Elite does not require any special diet or exercise, and it has been clinically proven to safely eliminate unwanted fat cells for good!

What to Expect with CoolSculpting® Elite

First, a gel is applied to the area being treated. Then the CoolSculpting® Elite applicator is placed against your skin. Suction gently pulls the fatty tissue up against the cooling panels and then freezes it (without harming your skin). You’ll feel an intense cold, and tugging, pulling and/or pinching for the initial 5 – 10 minutes of treatment, but then the area becomes numb. Patients often rest, work or watch TV during their treatment. How long your treatment lasts depends on your treatment plan. Once time is up, the applicator is removed and the area gets massaged to break up the treated fat cells, which helps your body eliminate them.

With CoolSculpting® Elite, there’s no downtime after treatment, so you can go right back to your day.

While you can get results with one CoolSculpting® Elite treatment, additional treatments may be recommended to reach your desired goal. Results will start showing in as little as 3 weeks, with final results coming about 3 – 6 months after treatment. Results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight through a healthy diet and exercise.

Kybella™ in Grand Rapids, MI

Kybella is an injection, specifically a deoxycholic acid, that separates and breaks apart stubborn fat deposits, allowing them to be removed through your body’s natural process of elimination. It’s a non-surgical option for removing fat from smaller areas like the chin and neck. Once the fat has been eliminated through Kybella treatment, it cannot come back as long as you maintain your weight.

What to Expect with Kybella

First, the injection site is marked in a grid-like pattern to ensure proper distribution of Kybella for an even appearance. Then we apply a topical numbing agent to help with pain and discomfort. Once the numbing has taken effect, Kybella is injected in 20 – 50 spots, which takes about 20 minutes.

Afterward, the most common side effects are pain, swelling, bruising and numbness. These usually subside in two weeks or less.

How much does Kybella cost?

The area being treated, the total number of treatments and other factors impact price. Allergan, the manufacturer of Kybella, offers the Allē rewards program, which can help you save. You can also get our best pricing with a Pure Skin Membership. To get an idea of what an average Centre for Pure Skin patient pays for Kybella, use our price estimator.
