Point Lumineux CoolSculpting® is based on a simple premise: When you look better, it tends to make you feel better, too. For many men and women, looking better means getting rid of those stubborn deposits of fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to affect. That’s not always an easy thing to do, but CoolSculpting provides a safe and effective method of fat removal—allowing the client to enjoy a more contoured physique, and hopefully to feel better about themselves in the process.



The story of Point Lumineux CoolSculpting begins with our founder, Dr. Sera Balderston. She grew up in a household that was deeply committed to natural and holistic health, and aware of the risks posed by environmental toxins. These experiences were formative; they gave Dr. Sera a passion for finding natural ways to help people look and feel like their best selves. She pursued this passion through studies in biochemistry and molecular biology at Penn State University and then additional studies in Oriental Medicine, both in Sarasota, FL, and in China at Zhejiang University School of Medicine. Dr. Sera has also earned postgraduate certifications in Functional Medicine, Nutrition, Cosmetic Acupuncture, CoolSculpting, Cold Laser Therapy, and Acupoint Injection Therapy.

Her studies first directed her toward Acupuncture, a field where she long worked as a solo practitioner, and ultimately into non-invasive aesthetics. That’s a big part of the CoolSculpting value proposition: It allows clients to enhance their appearance without the need for anesthesia, surgical incisions, or even much downtime.

Indeed, CoolSculpting works simply through controlled cooling—something to which fat cells are naturally sensitive. Fat cells in the targeted areas are frozen and then they effectively destroy themselves, exiting the body as waste.

Dr. Sera is a proud graduate of CoolSculpting University, where she received certification as an expert in this procedure; that level of technical expertise guides her in recommending just the right treatment plan for each client.

One of the things that makes us different from other CoolSculpting providers is that we’re ultimately committed to helping our clients maintain healthy lifestyles—so when you come in for fat reduction, we’ll also help you develop a personalized plan for ongoing weight loss and increased energy and stamina. We can work with clients along a wide range of therapeutic modalities, ranging from functional medicine to nutritional counseling, helping them achieve the lifestyle they want without the need for invasive procedures or medications.
