WHEN SPINACH & SPIN CLASS AREN'T ENOUGH
CoolSculpting® Is Not A Weight-Loss Program But A Fat Eliminating Treatment
CoolSculpting® is a noninvasive technology that uses extreme cold to dismantle fat cells and reduce fat pockets for a more contoured you! Because skin, muscle and nerve tissue freeze at a lower temperature than fat, these tissues remain unharmed during the fat-eliminating treatment. Studies have shown that CoolSculpting® can reduce fat up to 25% in the treated area after only one treatment.
But CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss treatment or appropriate for people who are obese. On the contrary, most people who get CoolSculpting® are fit and healthy and want to reduce stubborn fat pockets that won't disappear no matter how much they diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® , the #1 one fat eliminating treatment on the market, is FDA-cleared and proven to eliminate stubborn fat without surgery or downtime.*
The Science Behind CoolSculpting®
What makes CoolSculpting® possible, is a patented cooling process developed at Harvard University. The idea originated from the observation that children who have a habit of eating popsicles tend to get dimples.
Called “cryolipolysis,” CoolSculpting®’s fat-freezing technology gives long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troubling. Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature they will freeze.
Once that happens, the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) your body naturally processes the fat and expels these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. Frozen fat cells undergo apoptosis, and the body’s macrophages naturally engulf and digest the cells.
What Happens The Day Of Treatment?
Before beginning treatment, you'll need to schedule a consultation with one of our body contouring experts who will discuss your goals and develop a customized treatment plan to addresses problem areas.
The CoolSculpting® treatment is simple and done in a relaxed environment in our Palo Alto office. There is no necessary pre-treatment or preparation that you need to do.
During your treatment, a cupped device will be placed on the targeted area and using a suction technique, the fat will be pulled into the applicator and controlled cooling will be applied to the specific area. You’ll be able to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat while watching TV on our large-screen televisions, work on your laptop, read or sleep.
Are There Any Side-Effects With CoolSculpting® ?
Following the procedure, typical short-term, side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling bruising but these sensations do not typically last more than 24-hours. Rare side effects may also occur. But most of our patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment. In fact, some people schedule treatment during the middle of a busy work day.
The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not receive CoolSculpting® if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. This treatment is also not ideal to treat large amounts of excess fat.
Is CoolSculpting® Safe?
With over one million CoolSculpting® treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
What Areas Of The Body Can You Treat?
The areas L&P Aesthetics can effectively treat with CoolSculpting® are:
Arms & Armpit puffs
Hip rolls (muffin top) & Love handles
Inner & Outer thighs
Banana rolls (fat on the upper thigh beneath the buttock)
Is There Any Downtime?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically patients return to normal activities immediately.
On the specific area treated, some patients experience temporary redness and/ or swelling. To resolve this concern, we recommend lightly massaging the treated region.
When Will I See CoolSculpting® Results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, but you will experience the most dramatic results after two months*. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. After CoolSculpting® , many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves and lose even more weight naturally.
Are CoolSculpting® Results Permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and your body expels them, they’re gone for good. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas. CoolSculpting® results are long term because those fat cells, and that fat bulge, are gone for good.
How Do I Know If I'm A Good Candidate?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is designed for people who want to eliminate fat bulges in specific areas. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight loss solution (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass). Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® procedure have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas.
Cool Fact: Although men and women tend to show fat in different areas, the CoolSculpting® procedure works for both men and women.
