Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?
If you have stubborn fatty body areas that you want to get rid of, then you are likely a candidate. All it takes is one consultation at Laser Cliniqúe to determine if you can take advantage of this FDA cleared procedure.
How does it work?
Unlike laser and radiofrequency treatments, our San Diego CoolSculpting does not destroy other types of body tissue besides the fat cells. When you use laser, radiofrequency, and even surgery to target fat, the procedure may, damage or extract healthy cells and tissues as well, resulting in a longer recovery time. With CoolSculpting, the patented procedure uses a cooling process that freezes the fat cells which the body then naturally processes as waste. Only the fat cells are frozen so you don’t have to worry about surgery, scars or downtime. The frozen fat cells disappear on their own and in a few months, you can say hello to a trimmer, slimmer body. Another advantage is that the procedure is not painful because there are no incisions. The procedure has little to no downtime.
Where can I use CoolSculpting?
Stand in front of the mirror and identify the parts of your body that you aren’t completely in love with. From arms to belly, love handles to thighs, you can take advantage of this non-invasive fat reduction treatment across your entire body.
How long is the treatment?
Each treatment takes about one hour. The number of treatment cycles you need depends on the quantity of fat that needs to be removed. The procedure is performed in our state-of- the-art facility that was built to provide patients and clients with comfortable, pleasant amenities. The procedure can be performed over a lunch break. The results become evident as the weeks pass, with the destroyed fat cells leaving your body. Within three to four months, you will be experience the full results of the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you need will depend on your individually-tailored treatment plan. It may be possible to achieve your goals in only one office visit. For some people, the plan may include more than one treatment. In your initial consultation, Dr. Ataii can recommend the areas that need treatment and the number of office visits your treatment will require for the most dramatic results.
How safe is CoolSculpting?
Our CoolSculpting San Diego procedure has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment method, as the number one non-invasive fat reduction technique, with millions of procedures performed worldwide. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the CoolSculpting procedure for treating visible fat bulges in the submental area (beneath the chin), abdomen, flanks, and thighs.
Can CoolSculpting help me lose my double chin?
It certainly can. Freezing fat away from a double chin can be accomplished just as easily as addressing stubborn fat from other areas of the body. With CoolSculpting in La Jolla, Dr. Ataii can contour your neck and treat visible fat bulges under your chin – all with no needles, no surgery, and no downtime.
What can I expect during the procedure?
On the day of your treatment, you can expect no scalpels or needles to be used in your procedure. A gel pad and an applicator will be applied to the stubborn fat area. The applicator will deliver controlled cooling to the targeted area of fat you want to address. You will probably be comfortable enough to read, check your email, or even nap during the treatment. Use the time to do whatever feels right to you.
How long do the results stay?
Nothing lasts forever unless you maintain it. Once you take advantage of the body sculpting, you will need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise. This means that your sculpted body will continue as you take care of it.
Is it really expensive?
The biggest question that our clients have is whether CoolSculpting is expensive. It’s a very affordable procedure to have and we invite you in for a complimentary consultation to discuss the actual price, which will be based upon the areas that you want to target. Remember that there is no surgery and very little to no downtime, so you don’t have to worry about an overnight in the hospital or even anesthesia, which reduces the cost when compared to liposuction.
