With CoolSculpting, you can reduce your unwanted fat without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. This noninvasive body contouring treatment safely freezes and breaks down fat cells using controlled cooling, noticeably reducing stubborn pockets of fat for long-lasting slimming results. L&P Aesthetics provides CoolSculpting treatments for San Jose and San Francisco Bay Area women and men at our office in Palo Alto.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works through a revolutionary fat-freezing process called cryolipolysis. When fat cells freeze, they experience apoptosis (cell death) and are naturally eliminated by the body. The result is a slimmer, more sculpted shape in the treated area. Because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells, this process can take place without causing any harm to the surrounding tissues.

Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?

Ideal CoolSculpting candidates are dedicated to staying fit and healthy but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that haven’t resolved with diet and exercise.

While the treatment is powerful for reducing targeted deposits, it’s not intended to treat large amounts of excess fat, nor is it ideal for reducing your overall body mass index.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

First, you’ll meet with one of our body contouring experts to discuss your goals. You will work together to develop a custom treatment plan designed to address your specific concerns. The procedure will take place in our relaxing office environment, and you won’t need to do any preparation or undergo any pre-treatment prep.

During the treatment, your provider will place a cupped device over the targeted area. The device will use suction to pull the fat into the applicator, where controlled cooling will be applied. You may feel a cold sensation that will eventually turn into numbness.

Most people experience little, if any, discomfort during the 35 to 60-minute session. You’ll be free to read, watch TV on our large-screen televisions, or even take a nap. Once you’re finished, you can return to work and other routine activities.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Side effects are typically short-term, usually lasting less than 24-hours. They may include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, or tingling in the treated areas.

What Results Can I Expect After CoolSculpting?

While you may start to see results as soon as 3 weeks after your appointment, you’ll see your best results after about 2 to 4 months as your body continues to flush out fat cells.

Results typically last as long as you are able to maintain a stable weight. If you do gain weight, you’ll likely gain it more evenly, because the fat cells in your treated areas will be gone for good.
