What is CoolSculpting?


Ranch & Coast now offers the latest in body contouring with CoolSculpting in San Diego. The CoolSculpting procedure simply freezes the fat away. There is no downtime or incisions with this procedure. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting smoothly cools undesired fat cells in the body resulting in a painless, controlled eradication of fat cells.

How does CoolSculpting work?

The CoolSculpting method is based on science performed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Research determined that fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures, and when introduced to these cold climates, are effortlessly and totally demolished. Beginning weeks after the cooling application, the cooled fat cells initiate the process of solidifying the fat cells without destroying surrounding tissues, eventually causing the cells to shrink and disappear naturally. Gradually, as the cells diminish, the depth of the fat layer will be reduced.

What To Expect From My

CoolSculpting Procedure?

Although CoolSculpting offers many advantages and few risks, any aesthetic procedure should be a careful decision. Your CoolSculpting results will depend heavily on the expertise, knowledge, and experience of your San Diego CoolSculpting provider. It is crucial you hire a certified provider who has ample training and experience in CoolSculpting.

While CoolSculpting is associated with minor risks and side effects, Medical News Today has reported that patients can experience “redness, firmness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, tingling, skin sensitivity, mild to moderate pain, and muscle cramping.” This is to be expected, considering that the procedure is freezing the fat away. One other important note is that patients achieve the best results after a couple of rounds of treatment.   

Our CoolSculpting in Del Mar is an ideal solution for those with small areas of stubborn fat. It is not intended for weight loss or large fat volumes. The ideal CoolSculpting candidate, who will gain the maximum results, is no more than 20-30 pounds overweight and is relatively healthy. We can help you assess your needs and see if you are right for CoolSculpting, as we have seen many people and perform this treatment regularly.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

Clients who follow a healthy, nutritious diet and exercise regularly may be frustrated to realize that their good deeds don’t make a dent in the stubborn fat that accumulates in the thighs, belly, and hips. CoolSculpting in San Diego presents a safe, viable solution for sculpting and trimming the body when your workouts have failed to produce adequate results. The CoolSculpting device emits cooling energy that freezes away your bulges and bumps, flushing out the excess fat cells as waste over the course of a few months. The CoolSculpting applicators are designed in different shapes and sizes so the treatment can be customized to your needs.

CoolSculpting Reviews & Results

Thousands of patients are satisfied with their CoolSculpting results, and many report a significant reduction in fat. According to a 2014 article in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, “One study published in 2009 involving ten subjects reported a 20.4% and 25.5% reduction in the fat layer two months and six months after treatment.”

A 2015 analysis published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine reports in one study “60 subjects who received CoolSculpting completed a survey after their treatment and 83% of subjects were satisfied, 80% would recommend ‘submental cryolipolysis’ (CoolSculpting under the chin) to a friend, 77% reported visible fat reduction and felt that their appearance improved following the treatment, and 76% found the procedure to be comfortable.”

In conclusion, patients can expect many advantages of CoolSculpting, especially when compared to invasive fat reduction procedures. Call our Del Mar office to schedule your private consultation.

FAQ

Is CoolSculpting safe?

CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA for fat reduction in the thighs, back, belly, love handles, upper arms, buttocks and neck. Over one million successful CoolSculpting treatments have been performed across the globe without negative side effects or complications. CoolSculpting does not require any anesthesia, incisions, lasers, scarring or scalpels, yet can beautifully streamline the torso.

Are there any side effects with CoolSculpting?

Patients may feel a slight tugging feeling during treatment. Afterward, some minor side effects may include redness, temporary numbness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, or tingling, although none of these are significant enough to warrant alarm. Speak with our team during your private consultation to determine whether CoolSculpting is appropriate for your needs.

How many CoolSculpting sessions will I need?

Each person will receive a detailed, personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their unique goals. The number of sessions you need depends on the areas of the body you’re targeting and on how much fat you wish to remove. On average, patients will need 2-3 treatments to see comprehensive improvement in the physique.

What happens to the fat once it’s destroyed?

Once the fat cells are frozen through the process of cryolipolysis, the body naturally eliminates them as waste. Fat cells removed through CoolSculpting do not return, as fat cells cannot regenerate. This is more effective than dieting or exercise, methods that can only shrink the size of the fat cells rather than completely eliminating them. With CoolSculpting, even if the patient gains weight in the future, the treated areas will still remain toned and lean.

Is CoolSculpting painful?

After your session begins, you may feel a minor pulling sensation, as well as slight pressure and a freezing feeling. The treatment areas soon grow numb due to the cold, which many patients don’t even notice because they are busy working, talking on the phone, reading, watching movies, or napping.

What happens after my CoolSculpting session?

CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, so you will be able to return immediately to your normal activities such as work, school or play. There is no anesthesia or incisions with CoolSculpting, so you will feel completely alert and ready to resume your schedule. Side effects such as soreness and redness tend to be minor and are easily controlled with over-the-counter painkillers.

When will I start seeing results with CoolSculpting?

Results with CoolSculpting are gradual but steady. The fat cells frozen during cryolipolysis must be escorted out of the body as waste. Within about 3 weeks you will begin noticing positive changes in your figure and by 3 months you will see even more dramatic improvements. By 6 months, you will experience the full extent of the contouring achieved with CoolSculpting. Changes are permanent, provided you stay active and eat right.

Do I have to follow a special diet after CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells responsible for the bulging in your figure. It has nothing to do with what you do or do not eat, so you will not need to adhere to any special diets after your procedure. Many clients do feel motivated to follow a healthier lifestyle, however, by choosing foods that support their overall health and well being.

What happens if I gain weight after my procedure?

Encouraged by the fat loss results achieved with CoolSculpting, many clients embark on a regimen of healthy eating and exercising after their treatment. If you do gain weight in the future, it will be more evenly distributed over the body rather than concentrated in a few spots as before. The regions treated with CoolSculpting will now have fewer fat cells, so they appear more toned even if you put on a few pounds. Only extreme, massive weight gain would negate your CoolSculpting results.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

CoolSculpting costs will vary depending on the number of treatment areas, the number of sessions required, and on your fat loss goals. On average, clients undergo 2-3 treatments to see significant changes in the physique. When you come in for your consultation, we can provide you with a customized quote for services that fits within your budget and addresses your body sculpting needs.
