What IsCoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared alternative to liposuction that uses Cryolipolysis fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively reduce unwanted fat cells. No anesthetic is needed, and no incisions need to be made. You will be ready to return to your regular routine right after treatment.

With targeted cooling, your fat is safely chilled to damage the fat cells without harming surrounding skin or tissue. During the weeks following your procedure, your body will naturally reduce the damaged fat cells, leaving you looking slimmer.* Find out three surprising benefits to putting fat on ice with CoolSculpting.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

When you come in for your CoolSculpting treatment, we will place a protective gel over the treatment area.

Once you are comfortable, the CoolSculpting device will use a combination of gentle vacuum pressure and deep cooling to treat the fat below the skin and freeze unwanted fat cells. Patients can usually sit comfortably while the device works, often reading a book, watching a movie, or surfing the Web.

As a result of the cooling, you may feel some numbness during treatment, and the treatment area may be red afterward, but this usually fades within a few hours. Most treatments take about one hour per treatment area. Unlike most other practices in Southern California, Marina Medspa has 9 CoolSculpting machines, so you can get the same results in a fraction of the time. CoolSculpting can treat the waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, back, flanks, “love handles,” and a “muffin top.”

What Results Can I Expect?

CoolSculpting Crystal AwardExclusively Awarded to the Nation’s Top CoolSculpting Practices CoolSculpting is ideal for smaller pockets of fat that are diet- and exercise-resistant. It can effectively reduce 20 to 30% of the fat in the treatment area.* However, CoolSculpting typically cannot treat larger areas as effectively as traditional Los Angeles tumescent liposuction can

Results appear gradually during the weeks following the procedure as your body uses its own natural waste-removal system to reduce the damaged fat cells. Most patients benefit from multiple treatments spaced over a few months. Your surgeon will discuss with you the right number of treatments to meet your goals.

Who Is A Candidate For CoolSculpting?

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting should be within 15 to 20 pounds of their ideal weight and should be otherwise healthy. The best candidates have small pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat that they want to remove. If your goal is to lose a great deal of weight, CoolSculpting may not be an option for you.

How Do I Prepare For Coolsculpting Treatment?

Prior to your Los Angeles CoolSculpting treatment, it is important that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise, and that your weight is stable. If you are planning to lose weight, it is suggested that CoolSculpting is performed once your goal weight has been reached and maintained for several months. This will maximize your CoolSculpting results’ quality and longevity.

While CoolSculpting safely and effectively eliminates fat cells in treated areas, remaining fat cells will continue to shrink and expand with weight change. With proper preparation and consistently healthy living, CoolSculpting results are substantial and long-lasting. One week before your CoolSculpting treatment, you will need to avoid medications or supplements which may thin the blood. Common substances which should be avoided include aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, ginger, turmeric, and blood thinners. Consumption of such medications and supplements prior to CoolSculpting treatment may increase bruising.

CoolSculpting FAQs

Results from CoolSculpting treatment typically become visible within 4 weeks of treatment, though full results can be expected to appear after 2 months as the destroyed fat cells are gradually and naturally eliminated from the body. Your body will continue to remove destroyed fat cells from treated areas for 6 months following treatment.

Side effects and risks associated with CoolSculpting are extremely minimal. The most common side effect during CoolSculpting treatment is a tugging sensation during treatment. Following treatment, some patients experience temporary numbness, discomfort, redness, swelling, or bruising. These conditions are generally mild and resolve within 2 to 3 weeks. Though extremely rare, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is a serious side effect that occurs most in men. Though the cause is unknown, this condition refers to the expansion of fat cells. This condition does not pose a health risk, though it is a cosmetic concern that does not go away naturally and requires surgical correction.

While some patients only need a single treatment to reach maximal results, others may require a sequence of treatments over several months. The number of treatments each patient needs to achieve the best CoolSculpting results depends on the area (or areas) being treated and the patient’s specific goals. Each CoolSculpting treatment eliminates approximately 20% of fat from treated areas and multiple areas may be treated in a single session. This means that truly dramatic results may be achieved over only a few months with CoolSculpting. The highly skilled specialists at Marina Medspa can help you develop a treatment plan to provide you with the best possible CoolSculpting results.

Though CoolSculpting results can be easily maintained through a consistently healthy lifestyle, the decrease in fat cells in treated areas is permanent. While weight gain will cause fat cells to expand throughout the body, the number of fat cells in treated areas will not increase. While the shapes and contours created with CoolSculpting may withstand minor weight changes, significant weight change can impact results. Patients who are planning to experience a significant weight change may opt to postpone treatment until their weight is stable.

Once unwanted fat cells have been frozen through CoolSculpting, your body will eliminate them naturally. This entire process takes about 6 months, though you will be able to enjoy full results around 2 months after treatment. While diet and exercise can effectively shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting destroys unwanted fat cells entirely and permanently. Individual results may vary.
