What is CoolSculpting®?

“Stubborn fat” is called that for good reason: it’s nearly impossible to get rid of through diet and exercise. And almost everyone has it. This is why we offer CoolSculpting® in San Diego at Laser Cliniqúe. After your treatment, you’ll notice those persistent fat bulges begin to shrink and disappear, leaving you with a more sculpted body. It’s good to note that CoolSculpting® isn’t a weight loss procedure, and although you may not see a difference on the scales, your clothes will fit better and you’ll look slimmer.

  • Little to no downtime after the procedure

How CoolSculpting® works

In 2005, the CoolSculpting® process (cryolipolysis) was discovered and developed by two doctors working with Harvard Medical School. In cryolipolysis, fat cells are frozen. Once the fat cells are crystallized, the body will gradually process them as waste over the next few weeks. The result is a more toned, attractive body contour. Only the fat cells are frozen, so you don’t have to worry about surgery, scars, or downtime.

How much does CoolSculpting® cost? 

CoolSculpting® is a very affordable procedure, as there’s no anesthesia, surgery, or overnight stay in the hospital, which reduces the cost compared to liposuction. The average cost of CoolSculpting® ranges from $1,000 to $4,000, with an average cost of $1,625. If you intend to have multiple areas treated, you should expect to pay between $2,000 and $4,000.

The specific cost of CoolSculpting® will be based on:

•    A consultation of one’s own goals for the procedure 
•    What location(s) will be targeted 
•    How many treatments will be required for the desired outcome

CoolSculpting® treatment details

CoolSculpting® is such a convenient and “light” that you will be able to drive yourself home afterward. There’s no anesthesia, needles, or lasers. 

The treatment begins with a gel pad being placed onto your skin. Panel applicators will then distribute controlled vacuum pressure and cold to the treatment area. CoolSculpting® isn’t painful, but it can be uncomfortable for some because of the cold temperatures. The area(s) will be very cold, and may possibly begin to tingle or go numb. In addition, the vacuum pressure may cause you to feel a pinching or tugging sensation. The majority of patients find the treatment very tolerable, and you will probably be comfortable enough to read, check your email, or even nap as the panels do their work. Use the time to do whatever feels right to you. Once the freezing part of the treatment is complete, the area will be massaged for a couple of minutes to loosen the frozen fat cells. 

The length of treatment time will be determined by how many (and which) parts are being treated, but each area of the body treated typically takes approximately 30 minutes.

The number of treatments you’ll need will be determined by your customized treatment plan. Many patients only need one session, while others require more. In your initial consultation with Dr. Ataii, he will determine which areas need treatment and the number of visits your treatment will require to get the best results.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting Applicator

CoolSculpting® applicator upgrades

With our new upgraded applicators, CoolSculpting® treatments are even more comfortable and effective. Treatments take less time (35 minutes; almost half the regular time of a CoolSculpting® appointment), and more tissue can be treated. There is greater comfort, better results, and a larger cooling area thanks to the new cup design and colder temperatures. 

We also offer CoolAdvantage Petite, perfect for persistent upper arm fat (“bat wings”). Arm fat is the third most frustrating area on the body to lose weight, which is exactly why the CoolAdvantage Petite applicator was designed. This is one of the only non-invasive fat removal technology approved by the FDA to treat upper arms. 

Recovery

Coolsculpting® treatments require very little to no recovery or downtime. While patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, sensitivity, redness, or soreness in the treated area, they are usually able to resume their regular activities. We recommend staying well hydrated and giving the treated area a chance to “breathe” in order to speed recovery time. This means no leggings for tight clothing for a few days.

Results

Early results will be visible within 2-3 weeks of treatment, with continual improvements seen gradually over the next 8-12 weeks. At that point, some 90% of targeted fat cells will be gone. Exercise (even if it’s light) and a healthy diet will speed up your results, and these results will essentially last forever if you take good care of your body.

The fat cells that were destroyed will never return; however, if you end up gaining weight, the fat cells do remain in the treated area(s) can become larger, thereby compromising some of the results that CoolSculpting® achieved. This is why it’s important to maintain a healthy, stable weight. Nothing lasts forever unless you maintain it!
