What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting; you’ll look great from every angle. With no surgery or downtime required, you can quickly get back to your busy schedule while looking your best.

CoolSculpting can safely reduce stubborn fat cell deposits from the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks/sides (muffin top/love handles)
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Jawline and double chin area
  • Upper arms

Is CoolSculpting in Pasadena Right for You?

CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, making it a great option for most healthy people who want to eliminate stubborn fat. Ideal candidates for this procedure include men and women who are at a stable weight (or within 10-15 pounds of their target weight) but who still struggle with fat deposits on areas such as the abdomen, double chin, thighs, and arms.

While this is not a weight-loss procedure, it is a safe and effective method of permanently reducing fat. CoolSculpting is the perfect option for slimming out your silhouette, getting rid of stubborn fat bulges, and helping your clothes fit better. CoolSculpting has been used by many celebrities to achieve the toned and tight silhouettes you see on the red carpet.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The CoolSculpting procedure uses controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the desired area. The applicator precisely delivers cooling to the targeted fat. The treated fat cells are then frozen and destroyed without harming your tissue.

Over time, your body naturally processes the destroyed fat cells and eliminates them, resulting in a more sculpted shape. Throughout the procedure, most patients choose to read, check their email, catch up on work, or even take a nap. You may feel some deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or mild discomfort during treatment, but most people do not experience pain during CoolSculpting.

Here's how CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting Elite

Comprehensive Dermatology of Pasadena is constantly upgrading its technology and treatment techniques for our patients. That’s why we’re proud to introduce CoolSculpting Elite, the latest and greatest fat-freezing technology with reengineered applicators, larger cooling panels, and the ability to employ two applicators simultaneously.

Expanded Treatment Area

This revamped technology features seven new applicators. Adding these C-shaped applicators distinguishes CoolSculpting Elite as the only FDA-cleared treatment to reduce fat from nine different areas noninvasively.

These areas include:

  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Bra bulge
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Jawline area
  • Chin

Larger Cooling Panes

In addition, the new applicators have an 18% larger cooling panel surface. As a result, they eliminate more fat than the previous applicators for a more significant benefit.

Dual Applicator

The most significant distinction between the two fat-freezing treatments is the addition of dual applicators. The original technology only used one applicator per treatment. CoolSculpting Elite employs two applicators permitting us to treat two areas during a single session. Dual applicators also increase the level of removal during a single session.

Take the Next Step by Scheduling a Consultation

If you’re considering CoolSculpting, take the next step by scheduling a personal consultation with our cosmetic consultant, Mary Lou. She’ll work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one visit to our office to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, we can design a treatment plan to give you the best results.

For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one treatment session. For example, you may want to freeze away fat from your thighs and get rid of love handles or a double chin. Our dermatology center is equipped with two CoolSculpting systems – referred to as “DualSculpting” – allowing us to treat two different body areas at the same time.

FAQs About CoolSculpting

What to Expect After a CoolSculpting Treatment

The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to your regular activities afterward an easy process. Some patients even return to work right after their treatment is over.

After the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and mild discomfort. 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 for up to two weeks, but it will completely resolve on its own. All other symptoms also resolve on their own.

When Will I See Full Results After a CoolSculpting Procedure?

Some patients see results as early as three weeks after their first treatment, but the most dramatic results are usually seen between one and three months following treatment. When paired with a healthy lifestyle (including diet and exercise), you can expect your results to be permanent, if you don’t gain weight in the treated areas.

How Long Does the CoolSculpting Procedure Take to Complete?

Each treatment session typically takes between 1.5 to 4 hours to complete depending on how many applicators are needed.

How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Will I Need?

This all depends on the amount of fat you have and your ultimate cosmetic goals. Many patients see ideal results after just a single treatment. Most people have between 1-3 treatments before attaining their ideal results.

How Much Fat is Removed After a CoolSculpting Treatment?

You can expect a gradual reduction of about 20-25% of fat from the treated areas.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost in Pasadena, CA?

The cost of your Pasadena CoolSculpting treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area, how many treatments you schedule, and more. The only way to receive an estimate is to come in for a consultation.

Is There Loose Skin After CoolSculpting?

Since fat cells die slowly and gradually get processed by the body, the skin contracts slowly. This reduces the likelihood of sagging skin after a treatment.

Can I Exercise After a CoolSculpting Treatment?

Since this treatment is non-invasive and no downtime is required, most patients are able to resume their exercise routines within a couple of days.

How Can I Maximize my CoolSculpting Results?

There are a number of things we may suggest to enhance your CoolSculpting results. These may include:

  1. Avoid anti-inflammatories for several weeks
  2. Use a compression garment
  3. Maintain a good diet and sleep schedule
  4. Be patient
