The CoolSculpting procedure is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure.
It’s an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away with no surgery or downtime. With more than 3 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, people everywhere are getting a better view of themselves, thanks to the one-of-a-kind CoolSculpting procedure.
What Is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle.
CoolSculpting can safely remove stubborn fat deposits from the abdomen, flanks/sides (muffin top/love handles), inner and outer thighs, jawline (double chin), and upper arms. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution. Instead, it eliminates targeted fat cells to smooth your silhouette and help your clothes fit better.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
What Can I Expect with CoolSculpting?
Your first step with CoolSculpting at Comprehensive Dermatology Center of Pasadena is your consultation with Mary Lou. She’ll work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, we can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results.
For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top. At Comprehensive Dermatology Center of Pasadena, we have two CoolSculpting systems, so we can treat two different body areas at the same time—we call it DualSculpting.
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap. During the procedure, you may feel some deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process. Often times, patients even return to work after their CoolSculpting treatment is over.
After the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Many patients do experience redness in the treated areas for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed. In rare cases, this redness may persist up to 2 weeks, but it will completely resolve itself.
When Will I See Results?
While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their first treatment, the most dramatic results are usually seen between 1 and 3 months following treatment. These results are permanent as long as you don’t gain weight in the treated areas.
