How does CoolSculpting work?

Freezing away fat comes down to science

Target Fat Cells

CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath
the skin.

Crystallization

The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time your body naturally processes the fat cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

Controlled Cooling

CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and treat these fat cells without affecting surrounding tissue.

The Process From Start to Finish

 

As you begin the first step, you will undergo a thorough consultation to determine if CoolSculpting® is right for you. One of our practitioners will perform an examination as well as find out about your cosmetic goals. During this time, it’s important that you ask any questions you have so you can make an informed decision regarding the procedure.

Once you are ready for your procedure, you will come into our San Diego clinic. You will be comfortably seating or lying down. A gel pad will be placed on the targeted area to protect the skin and the applicator will be applied. The device consists of two cooling panels that are used to properly target the area. As the first step, this device is placed on the target area, and the skin is drawn up between the two panels.

The practitioner will then activate the patented freezing power of the Coolsculpting® device. During the first few moments, you will feel a cold sensation on your skin, and possibly some discomfort such as tingling or pulling, which should dissipate within the first several minutes. Over the next thirty minutes, the cooling panels work to eliminate unwanted fat cells while you read, work or take a nap.

Once the panels have done their job, your practitioner will remove the device. She will then massage the treatment area to break up the crystallized fat cells. This helps them to be reabsorbed by the body and eliminated completely.

Each area will be treated for approximately thirty minutes and you should allow extra time to check in and check out. During your consultation, our staff will be able to help you estimate how much time you will need for the overall procedure.

WHAT IS INVOLVED WITH COOLSCULPTING?

CoolSculpting® offers a noninvasive way to remove localized body fat that laughs in the face of diet and exercise. By delivering controlled, targeted cooling to the areas of interest, fat cells are removed from the body through the natural metabolic process. Formally known as Cryolipolysis, this process cools the fat and destroys it.

During the procedure, you are positioned so that there is access to the target spot. The CoolSculpting® device then cools the bulge between two panels. By cooling the bulge just above the freezing point, the fat cells of the body begin to shrink. This is because fat cells are very vulnerable to low temperatures.

The sensation of CoolSculpting® is a mild tug or pull, with the feeling similar to when an ice pack is used on the skin. There is no need for anesthesia or pain medication. You can even read or nap while the procedure is done. Once completed after an hour or two, you can return to your normal lifestyle with no restrictions.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM COOLSCULPTING?

Over the next three months, you will see a gradual reduction of fat in the treatment area. Your body will slowly break down the fat and get rid of it through natural healing processes. During this time, you will experience no discomfort at all, only the pleasure of seeing your figure reduce in size. If you have any questions or concerns that arise after your CoolSculpting® procedure, the staff at Lanoi Cosmetic Dermatology is always available. We strive to perform the best CoolSculpting® San Diego has to offer, and we do this by being there for our patients long after their treatment is over.

WHO CAN HAVE COOLSCULPTING?

Before determining if CoolSculpting® is right for you, it is ideal to consult with a CoolSculpting® professional, such as those at Lanoi Cosmetic Dermatology in San Diego. CoolSculpting® is a good choice for body contouring and if you have apparent bulges or bumps that you would like reduced. It is also good if you prefer to avoid surgery and downtime.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

We all want to see fast results, and with CoolSculpting® you can begin to see changes to the treated area as soon as three weeks after treatment. The most dramatic results will follow at around two months, when your body is in full swing flushing away fat cells. This process could last up to four months post-­procedure.

You won’t notice that the fat removal process is in effect, but you will see the treated area shrink in circumference over time. Of course, every person is different and so are their CoolSculpting® results. Additional CoolSculpting® may be performed to achieve even greater fat reduction.

Concerns about whether the fat will return are put to rest because fat will never deposit again in the area that was treated, nor is there a risk of fat migrating from another area. It is recommended, though, that you continue a sensible diet and exercise program to help keep your results optimal.

COOLSCULPTING
FOR MEN

CoolSculpting is popular and effective for both men and women in San Diego and throughout the world. It is ideal for men because it can target areas that are not responding to diet and exercise. It is not uncommon for men who work out and have healthy diets to still having stubborn pockets of fat, especially “love handles” or extra belly fat.

CoolSculpting® won’t interfere with your normal workout routine and doesn’t require a special diet or medication. It also doesn’t leave any scars or marks from incisions. The procedure is totally discreet and virtually painless.
