What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, with comparable results. CoolSculpting uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis, which cools the fat to a freezing temperature. Studies have found that cryolipolysis reduces the treated layer of fat by as much as 25 percent.  CoolSculpting is an effective and safe way to remove stubborn fat.

Anatomy of fat cells

Scientist know that like other cells in the body, each fat cell (Adipocytes) has a cell membrane and a nucleus, but their bulk is made up of droplets of stored triglycerides, each of which consists of three fatty-acid molecules attached to a single glycerol molecule. There are three kinds of fat, "white fat," which is the main substance used for energy storage. There are also "brown fat" cells,that produce heat, making brown adipose tissue pretty important for maintaining body temperature. Lastly, there is "beige fat," which is found in white adipose tissue, but unlike white-fat cells, these cells contain UCP-1. Beige-fat cells seem to have the flexibility to act like either white fat or brown fat, depending on the situation, according to the Endocrine Connections paper.

What is CoolSculpting?

Coolsculpting is the one and only FDA cleared treatment, created to eliminate fat in 9 different areas of the body including under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms. Though Coolsculpting is not a specific weight loss solution, it can remove up to 20-25% of fat on certain areas of the body. 

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freezing, is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperature to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body.  This technique is patented under the name Coolsculpting and is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise. In Los Angeles Coolsculpting for men is the most sought after body contouring treatment.

 How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting procedures use rounded paddles in one of four sizes to suction a patient's skin and fat “like a vacuum”. The treatment uses very low temperatures, or cryotherapy to destroy fat cells. The cryolipolysis, happens while a patient sits in a comfortable reclined chair and the patented cooling panels get to work crystallizing your fat cells, technically permanently removing fat cells from the desired area of the body. Eventually, when fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated through the body’s natural process.

The difference between weight loss vs. fat reduction:

When a person works out and loses weight the body does not “spot reduce” fat.  Losing weight will come from all over the body and not in a specific area, even if that person targets a certain area with weights or exercise.  Fat reduction differs from weight loss as it can target a specific area.  Patients benefit from fat reduction because machines like Coolsculpting can target one specific body part (e.g. chin and back) and remove the fat. 

Benefits of CoolSculpting

There are so many great benefits to using CoolSculpting to shed some fat. There are three main benefits of Coolsculpting and that is:

Targeted Fat Reduction:

Coolsculpting allows each patient to choose the area of fat reduction. Even areas that are deemed “stubborn” are no match for the Coolsculpting machine (e.g.back areas). During the procedure the patient will feel a “cold” sensation but this will have zero side effects on the persons actual skin (just targeting fat).

Less than surgery:

Patients understand surgery can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on the type of surgery.  Along with the price, surgery can sometimes require a lot of down time and possible side effects even after the surgery.  Coolsculpting has minimal side effects (people have experienced minor soreness) and is considerably cheaper (even with several treatments) than available surgery options).

Effective Results:

Coolsculpting is made to target certain areas of the body.  Since its highly targeted Coolsculpting produces effective results.  In the eight years since its approval, patients around the globe have continued to enjoy strong results.

Easy On a Busy Schedule:

Coolsculpting is able to produce results without any downtime for the patient. Unlike the previous treatments like liposuction, the patient spends as little as 35 min in the chair, with the Coolsculpting machine and then the patient can go right back to their day. Patients have been known to experience mild side effects like soreness, numbness, or redness in the treatment area but these symptoms are not usually enough to effect that person’s day in anyway.

Zero Scarring:

Most patients want to avoid scarring as much as possible and Coolsculpting is able to do just that while simultaneously providing effective results. Coolsculpting doesnt break the skin in any way so patients never  see scarring from Coolsculpting treatments. 

Versatile Treatment Areas - One of the main reasons why patients choose Coolsculpting is because this procedure can treat so many “problem” areas on their body such as: 

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin  (the “double chin”)
  • Flanks, or “love handles”
  • Bra bulge (the pinchable area next to the armpit)
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • “Banana roll” (the area under the buttocks)To receive the desired effects, some of these areas might require more treatments than others.

 

Little to no pain

Previously removing fat would require surgery, downtime, needles and possible complications.  With the invention of Coolsculpting people have been able to spot reduce fat without any real pain (some soreness might occur but it is usually temporary).

Gym results (without the gym):
Stubborn fat can cover up well earned muscles. With Coolsculpting fat is reduced in the desired places all without ever having to go to the gym.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting and Body Sculpting Treatment?

Patients can expect to receive a brief consultation from our trained, medical professional and then the procedure starts.  The practitioner will place the Coolsculpting applicator on the desired area of treatment during this placement, the patient will experience a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by that signature cooling effect. The patient will relax for around 30-35 minutes (the time will differ depending on the treated area and how many areas the patient selected). Any discomfort should disappear in about 5 to 10 minutes and then you'll be able to sit back and relax in our CoolSculpting Los Angeles spa. After the specified amount of time (chosen by the practitioner) the medical professional will detach the application and apply a message on the treated area. This massage helps to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction and desired results. Usually the number of treatments will depend on the patient and the areas of treatment.

Potential side effects:

During the procedure a patient may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb (and the numbness is only temporary). Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment. People should note: according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there is a rare complication that occurs in less than one percent of procedures where patients will be affected by something called "paradoxical fat hyperplasia." In these rare cases, there will be an "unexpected increase" in the number of fat cells.

CoolSculpting Frequently Asked Questions

Click on a question to see more

  • Where does the fat go after treatment?

    The Cryolipolysis freezes stubborn fat cells, which causes them to crystallize and die so that the body can flush the dead fat cells out via the liver.

  • Who is a good candidate for Coolsculpting?

    Men and women who want to target stubborn fat areas of the body are great candidates for Coolsculpting. Coolsculpting is not recommended for people who suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. It is recommended that patients should also tell their doctor if they have any other medical conditions including recent surgery, pre-existing hernia, and any known sensitivities or allergies.

  • What if the patient gains weight after the procedure?

    Because it is possible to gain weight after a specific treatment, medical professionals recommend that each patient who receives a Coolsculpting treatment should still maintain healthy habits by exercising and eating healthy. Any weight gained thereafter, will happen evenly throughout your body and not just in the treatment areas.

  • Is CoolSculpting permanent?

    The Coolsculpting treatment (s) can be permanent if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle and avoids gaining weight. Though each patient has the ability to receive more treatments if they do gain weight and want to spot treat fat in certain areas.

  • Will Coolsculpting tighten loose skin?

    Coolsculpting is for fat reduction in specific areas not tightening of the skin. Though Coolsculpting can effectively reduce under arm skin with the “look” of tighter skin.

  • When will a patient see results?

    Usually patients will see results and changes as soon as they complete their recommended amount of sessions, which is usually three or more per area. Final results may take 6 months or more.

  • How many treatments should each patient receive?

    Usually, patients will receive 1 to 3 treatments per treatment area. Though, the amount of Coolsculpting treatments will depend on the body type of the individual, the treatment area, the amount of fat that you want to remove and a further recommendation from our trained medical professional.

  • What should a patient expect from a Coolsculpting treatment?

    Coolsculpting is an effective treatment to reduce fat. Since fat doesn't like the cold and it gravitates to the heat, the cold can remove the fat, permanently (if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle). When diet and exercise just does not work, Coolsculpting is the answer . The best part is that patients do not have to worry about the fat coming back. It is permanently removed up to 25% each time a patient goes through the process. This allows you to continue to have the treatment and continue to remove fat from the area.

  • Any side effects after treatments?

    During the procedure, patients may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area naturally becomes temporarily numb. After the initial procedure, common side effects are: temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.
