Coolsculpting Santa Monica

Sometimes no matter how much you diet or exercise, you still cannot get rid of stubborn areas. CoolSculpting has revolutionized fat loss, and body sculpting, using principles of science that we have known for years in dermatology. We have always known that if we cool the fat cells in the body, they will undergo a process of natural cell death. This finding has been applied to create an even cooling, non-invasively to gently get rid of up to 22% of fat cells, permanently, in the area treated after just one treatment.

There is no damage to surrounding tissue, no need for anesthesia of any kind, no down-time or scarring. It is safe on every skin type.

Before & After Photos

About

Whether it is the double chin, the back of the arms, the bra-fat on the back, the inner thighs, love handles, double chins, buttocks, bellies, we all have areas that are not responding to exercise and do not get resolved even after dieting.

It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin.

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

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat.  CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.

At our office, every single patient considering this procedure is evaluated by a board-certified dermatologist to be sure this is a correct treatment for the anatomy of the individual. Careful treatment planning is the key to having symmetrical and beautiful outcomes. Patients who are not candidates are advised to refrain from this procedure as it will likely not only not be effective, but in certain situations can cause serious health concerns.

Procedure

CoolSculpting is like getting a cold- hickey! While you likely will not have bruising or the red marks like a teenager in love, you will feel a suction and cooling as the fat cells get treated.

We provide our patients with a super comfortable bed, entertainment, WiFi, comfortable pillows, massagers and heating blankets to make it a more enjoyable and comfortable experience. Most our patients either work, or nap during their treatment, if not watching Netflix!

People use the words CoolSculpting meaning different things! In fact, many places advertise CoolSculpting but are not using the CoolSculpting machine from the manufacture Allergan on their patients.

WHERE DOES THE FAT GO? ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT?

The side treated with CoolSculpting still looked slimmer than the un-treated side. However, he had gained weight all over as one would expect.
