Cynthia Brooks, MD

Co-Founder & Medical Director, Cool Contour

Dr. Cynthia Brooks, MD graduated from the University of Florida with honors in Microbiology, and went on to obtain her medical degree from the University of Florida, College of Medicine.  Following medical school, Dr. Brooks completed her five year residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. She then went on to Fellowship Training, specializing in Women’s Imaging at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.  Upon completion of her fellowship, Dr. Brooks joined the faculty at Northwestern Memorial Hospital as an Associate Professor of Radiology. Dr. Brooks is Board Certified in Radiology with a subspecialty in Women’s Imaging.

During her training in Women’s Imaging, Dr. Brooks learned all about diagnosis and treatment of cancer, but it was only after working very closely with these women did she truly appreciate the importance of their appearance to their overall health, happiness and self-esteem. This understanding is what motivated her to continue her training in cosmetic medicine, obtaining her credentialing in Laser and Aesthetic Medicine by the National Council on Laser Certification.  She has experience in all aspects of aesthetic injectables and laser treatments, particularly those procedures that are minimally invasive, have minimal downtime, yet offer maximal results.

Recently Dr. Brooks has dedicated her time and passion to learning and providing CoolSculpting, the only FDA approved noninvasive permanent fat removal treatment. Each patient is treated with their own individualized plan supported by evidence based medicine.  Dr. Brooks advocates and ensures improvements in the wellness and quality of life of her patients and believes that CoolSculpting can improve the physical and mental well being of her patients. She brings these values and ideals to Cool Contour as the Medical Director, continually assuring the highest quality and standards of medical care.
