CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, highly popular, and effective fat reduction procedure that destroys fat cells under the skin by using cold temperatures. Here at Laser Cliniqúe, we proudly offer CoolSculpting in our San Diego practice.
CoolSculpting® treatment details
CoolSculpting® is such a convenient and “light” that you will be able to drive yourself home after your treatment at our San Diego clinic. 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.
