How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost – San Diego

CoolSculpting may be the easiest way to make the changes you need to look your best. This treatment does not involve surgery, needles, anesthesia, or interruptions in your daily routines. It’s easy, performed by a professional, and reshapes your body in ways that dieting and exercise cannot.

What is CoolSculpting?

An FDA-cleared treatment for fat reduction, CoolSculpting is a refreshing way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. It freezes away the fat using the scientific principles of cryolipolysis, a revolutionary concept discovered at Harvard University. This non-invasive treatment is particularly successful in eliminating fat that has proven to be resistant to exercise and diet.

How Does it Work?

CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells, triggering a natural elimination process. The treatment uses specialized applicators to apply controlled cooling directly to the areas of fat being targeted for reduction. Once the fat is frozen, the cells begin to die. The body’s immediate response is to get rid of the dead cells.

The body’s metabolism begins the natural process of removing damaged fat cells from the treatment areas, filtering them through the lymphatic system and out of the body. This process fully eliminates the fat naturally, reducing the thickness of fat pockets and layers. As a result, your CoolSculpting treatment dramatically reshapes your body within months.

 What is the Treatment Like?

On your treatment day, your provider gently places a gel pad on the targeted area and applies the CoolSculpting applicator to send controlled cooling to the fat in this area. At first, this part of your body begins to feel cold, a sensation that gradually transitions to numbness. You may feel tugging, pulling, or pinching of your body and skin in the treated area. During this time, you can read, listen to music, or use your electronic device.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Individuals who are close to meeting their weight loss goals make the best candidates for CoolSculpting, particularly if they are within thirty pounds of their efforts. Coolsculpting helps remove stubborn pockets of fat without the need to undergo surgery by targetting unwanted fat pockets or bulges in specific areas of the body, allowing you to attain your body goals easily and painlessly. Discover if you are a good candidate by scheduling a free Coolsculpting consultation and pricing estimates to find out if this is the best procedure for your ideal body shape.

FAQs: Learn More about CoolSculpting Treatments

What does the freezing process feel like?

During the initial stage of your fat freezing process, the targeted area begins to feel extremely cold. In a few moments, this cold feeling transitions to a sensation of numbness. Some individuals also experience the feeling that something is tugging, pulling, or pinching their body.

Where does the frozen fat go?

Eventually, frozen fat cells die and travel to the liver where they are processed before being permanently eliminated from the body. While it only takes about two weeks for frozen fat cells to die, it takes at least three months for the liver to flush them out naturally. It can take as long as six weeks for this process to reach completion.

How soon do I see results?

While the biggest changes become visible after two months, you may notice a slimming effect in as little as three weeks. As your body continues to eliminate dead fat cells, these changes become more pronounced.

How much time does it take?

The fat freezing process typically takes between thirty and sixty minutes for a single treatment. If more than one area is being treated, your CoolSculpting session  can take longer, depending on the size and location of the fat bulge.

How many areas during a single visit?

While it is possible to treat multiple areas in a single session, many patients choose to schedule more than one visit. This decision is one that you should make with your chosen provider. In order to have more than one body area treated during a single visit, the provider must have access to multiple applicators and specialize in treating different areas of the body.

Can I reduce fat on every area of my body?

Currently, the CoolSculpting procedure can only be used in the United States on FDA-cleared locations on the body. These areas include the abdomen, lower stomach, upper and inner thighs, upper arms, underneath the buttocks (banana roll), back, flanks, and underneath the chin.

How many sessions do I need to have?

Together, you and your provider determine how many sessions to schedule in order to achieve your body-sculpting goals. The specific areas of the body involved and their existing condition influence this decision. The number of sessions required to achieve your goals depends on how many areas you intend to treat.

How quickly can I go back to my normal routines?

Most patients return to their daily routines as soon as the CoolSculpting procedure has been completed. This is a non-invasive treatment, so you won’t need to wear bandages or take special precautions.

How do I know if I am a good candidate?

Individuals who have only thirty or fewer pounds to lose are good candidates. Maintaining a healthy diet and participating in a regular exercise routine enhances your results.

How safe is this procedure?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already cleared the CoolSculpting procedure as a safe and effective way to reduce fat non-surgically on the abdomen, lower stomach, upper and inner thighs, upper arms, buttocks, back, flanks, and underneath the chin. More than a million procedures have been safely performed to date, reinforcing the FDA’s decision.

Do side effects occur?

Shortly after the procedure, many patients experience at least one or two minor side effects that go away quickly. These issues include temporary stinging, tingling, numbness, swelling, redness, bruising, blanching, cramping, aching, or pain of a mild nature. The treated area may feel tender to the touch, and the skin may feel itchy or sensitive to touching. Typically, these side effects go away within a week or two.

A small number of patients may experience a side effect of a more serious nature. It is called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia and involves the treated fat cells growing in size rather than shrinking.

Is there anyone who should not undergo this procedure?

Fat freezing isn’t an optimal procedure for everyone. People who suffer from paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, cold agglutinin disease, or cryoglobulinemia do not make good candidates and should not go through the CoolSculpting process. Obese patients who are looking to lose a large number of pounds are not good candidates for this procedure. They should not consider it as a good option for their weight-loss goals.

Are the results permanent?

Since treated fat cells die and are eliminated from the body, the intended results are permanent.

Are special diets, supplements, or exercise routines necessary?

You do not need to begin special diets, take supplements/pills, or begin new exercise routines once you’ve undergone fat reduction. You may discover new motivation to do do so once you begin to notice your body’s new physique.

What if I gain weight after having the procedure?

Untreated fat cells remain in the body. If you ingest more calories than your body needs, these fat cells grow as they take in excess calories. It is possible that you may gain this weight evenly or in areas other than the treated ones, simply because many of your fat cells have already been eliminated. In fact, your overall weight gain should be less than it would have been since you have now fewer fat cells than you did previously.
