Coolsculpting Freezes The Fat
The technical term is Cryolipolysis. We call it CoolSculpting which is easier to say and a lot more accurate.
It’s a fair new in-office cosmetic procedure for getting rid of body fat without surgery. Just like it sounds, the process uses cold to eliminate fat.
We freeze the fat cells, literally. Fat cells are far more susceptible to cold than skin cells. Because of this, we can use a device that creates a sub-zero temperature at the skin. Your skin won’t be hurt, bit fat cells beneath the skin will be destroyed.
Yes, it’s cold. We find most of our patients can have a procedure with no pain killers or anesthesia. Patients can also return to their regular activities the same day. Because it is non-invasive, the risks that come with surgical procedures are eliminated.
CoolSculpting has amazing results on love handles and other bulges. We’ve toned buttocks and thighs as well.
You’re not going to see results the next day. Your body still has to flush out the dead fat cells. That takes a few weeks to a few months.
Once the fat cells are gone, that’s it, they are gone forever.
All the available studies, and our experience, have turned up NO long term side effects. Short term, you may have some brief redness. Think of what you skin is like after coming in on a really really cold day. A few people have reported some temporary numbness in the area treated, but that too is just part of your skin being really cold.
CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010.
Zara Asks, “How Are You Sticking To Your New Year Resolution(s)?”
A majority of us did it. We rang in 2015 with full enthusiasm towards new weight loss and fitness goals. For those of you who stuck to your goals but the fat is still “sticking” — I wrote today’s post for you.
Especially in sunny Los Angeles, where the average year round 75 degree weather doesn’t allow us to hide behind cold weather coats and bundles, CoolSculpting has become one of our top procedures at CRMCLaser.
While I still promote an overall healthy lifestyle for all of you, I wanted to share how CRMCLaser can help get rid of those stubborn bulges or problem areas that continue to bother you – no matter how clean you eat or how often you workout.
Some common questions I receive from patients:
How much weight will I lose?
One misconception is that losing weight and actual reduction of fat are the same. Are you surprised to know they are not? When you lose weight, you are only reducing the size of fat cells and when you gain weight, you are increasing the size. CoolSculpting does not shrink the fat cells — CoolSculpting eliminates the fat cells, for good. Your clothes will fit better and the fat is actually gone. Win, Win.
How does it work?
FDA-cleared, the procedure uses technology to control the cooling settings that freezes and gets rid of unwanted fat cells without surgery or recovery time. CoolSculpting takes approximately 60 minutes and prime results are seen about 90 days after the procedure. There is no better time to start the procedure then now to get ready for Spring and swimwear!
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance varies per patient, you can expect to complete the procedure in one hour with minimal discomfort. Our team is always nearby to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. Most of our busy patients are often seen multi-tasking with their iPads/iPhones during the procedure. Unlike invasive liposuction surgery, the treatment is designed to remove fat with no downtime. There can be minimal bruising and minimal discomfort for a few days after the procedure.

Coolsculpting Los Angeles – Worth it?
We’ve All Heard About CoolSculpting…
CoolSculpting is the newest and, according to some, the best way for you to get rid of unneeded fat—fast. This procedure literally freezes the fat right off of your body. When you need a way to quickly get rid of fat, or you have that one paunch of unneeded fat that no matter how much you diet or how much you exercise, it sticks to you, this is the way. However, you may be wondering, is this procedure really worth it? Does it work, and do the negative effects of CoolSculpting outweigh the positive ones? You can learn everything about the negative effects of CoolSculpting as well as CoolSculpting Pricing in this article.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
This body-contouring procedure has been speculated over a lot. Is it really safe to freeze fat off of yourself? This procedure is FDA-approved, which means that it is completely legal and, for the most part, safe. No surgical procedure is one hundred percent safe, but CoolSculpting is one of the safer ones. If you want a virtual risk-free to melt (or perhaps the more correct term would be freeze) the fat right off of you. All in all, this is a procedure that is not too risky that should definitely be considered if you wish to lose some extra fat off of your body. The negative effects of CoolSculpting are greatly outweighed by the benefits in this case.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
During a CoolSculpting Procedure, fat is literally frozen to death. Unwanted fatty tissue is pressed between two plates that are cold enough to kill the fat cells for one to three hours, depending on what part of the body is being frozen. This also depends on your fat density and how much fat you have in the area you are getting frozen. CoolSculpting causes the fat cells to breakdown and be reabsorbed into the bloodstream.
At this point, you are probably wondering, “How much does this magical procedure cost?” CoolSculpting pricing depends on a lot of factors. It could change based on where you live, how much fat you are getting removed, and the doctor you are going to. It can range from about six to nine hundred dollars per treatment. Call a local clinic near you to find out what the price rate will be for your specific treatment.
