Bummed out by stubborn bulges that just won’t go away, no matter how hard you work in the gym? You can freeze them away for good and sculpt your dream silhouette with CoolSculpting Elite, available at our Ankeny dermatology clinic and spa near Des Moines, Iowa.

Home to Central Iowa’s only CoolSculpting Masters, Revive is your destination achieving the results you’ve always wanted without any surgery, needles, or anesthesia.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved nonsurgical body contouring treatment that freezes away stubborn fat in areas such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin (“double chin”)
  • Flanks
  • Bra bulge
  • Under the buttocks
  • Above the knees

It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. If weight loss is your goal, you may be a better candidate for the Transform medical weight loss program.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works by freezing and killing excess fat cells in specific areas of your body. Once those fat cells die off, your body naturally flushes them away. The result: a slimmer, more sculpted shape finally free of those stubborn bulges.

What Makes CoolSculpting Elite So, Well, Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is the latest advancement in fat freezing, and it’s even better than the original model in several ways.

More Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting Elite removes more than 20 to 25% of unwanted fat—even better results than before.

30% More Tissue

Elite targets 30% more fat cells in the same treatment time.

Technology Improvements In 10 Years

Elite represents 10 years of research and development.


Elite has 2 applicators instead of 1, and it features a new collection of applicators designed to treat many different areas of the body.

9 Treatment Areas

Elite’s new “every size” applicators more precisely fit different areas to get the job done even better.

What Is It Like To Get a CoolSculpting Treatment?

CoolSculpting is non-invasive and doesn’t require any anesthesia. At the start of your treatment, we’ll place the device’s applicator over your targeted area, and you may feel some suction as it attaches. Next comes some intense cold, which soon turns to numbness.

For the rest of your session, you’re free to read, relax, work from your laptop, or even nap. We love spoiling our visitors, so we’ll make sure you’re well taken care of during the hour or so you’re with us.

What Is Recovery Like After CoolSculpting?

You’ll be free to return to your usual routine, including the gym, right away after your appointment. You may have some redness and sensitivity in your treated areas, but this typically subsides within about a day.

When Will I See Results After CoolSculpting?

It takes 1 to 3 months for your results to gradually show as your body flushes away the treated fat cells. Once those fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. As long as you don’t experience any major weight fluctuations, your results will last indefinitely.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost in Des Moines?

The price of CoolSculpting in the Des Moines area varies from person to person, depending on your unique treatment plan. During your in-depth consultation, we’ll provide you with a personalized pricing estimate detailing your expected costs.

Relaxed atmosphere with caring and hospitable staff. Procedures virtually painless with great results.

Tawnya was able to see me regarding some moles causing me concern. She removed the moles and sent them to the lab. As soon as my results were posted, she contacted me immediately with the news that everything was ok. I will be seeing her for regular checkups.

Dr Stef was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help our daughter out with some skin issues. I can’t recommend this place enough!

Thank you so much for your kind review! We can't wait to see you again!

My fiancé and I are new to the Ankeny Iowa area and I needed to see a dermatologist. First and foremost, it is a fantastic environment. Not cluttered, clean, professional and polite. I saw Nikki Roetman the first visit. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Very well versed outside of normal dermatology. The second visit I was blessed with the help of Dr Stef Gatica, she was very fun to work with. We were able to joke and have a good laugh. With the help of Aubrey I have had nothing but pleasant professional visits. Highly recommended to go hear and get taken care of the right way

Hi, Megan. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We truly appreciate it!

I’m an NP that recently did a Botox training with Dr. Stef. She is very knowledgeable and skilled-an excellent resource for all things skin! I learned so much. I appreciated the 1:1 training. The day was fast paced which allowed for several opportunities for me to inject but also personalized enough for me to gain the skills to inject independently. I highly recommend.

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Thank you Katie! I had a lot of fun with you and you did a great job! Can't wait to watch you grow in your skills!

Thank you Dr Stef for coming to our office to share your wealth of knowledge and skills. Your years of experience and technique methods that you offered during our training was amazing.
