Coolsculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting®  is an FDA-cleared fat-freezing system that eliminates extra body fat. CoolSculpting targets the type of body fat that's particularly resistant to diet and exercise. The most common treatment areas are the abdomen, thighs, hips, and double chin, but you can get this kind of fat reduction nearly anywhere on your body.

This completely nonsurgical treatment is done onsite at Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics, where the certified and highly trained team has done more than 1,000 CoolSculpting treatments. As the only crystal level practice in the Salinas area, Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics does 75-200 CoolSculpting treatments every three months.

How does CoolSculpting work?

You'll relax in a partly reclined position while your Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics care provider attaches a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator to your body, just above the target fat. The CoolSculpting device sends controlled cold directly into your unwanted fat cells, which freezes and kills them.

You'll shed the dead fat cells during the next several weeks through regular lymphatic body functions. This leaves you with a noticeable reduction in fat in the treated areas. Because the fat cells are destroyed and shed from your body, they can't regenerate.

What does CoolSculpting feel like?

CoolSculpting is generally a pain-free treatment. For the first several minutes, you'll likely feel a very cold sensation, deep below your skin.

Most patients say that the treatment area goes numb in around 5-10 minutes, so you won't even notice the cold after that. The majority of CoolSculpting patients find treatment comfortable enough that they simply read, watch tv, or relax during treatment.

How long does CoolSculpting take, and how many sessions do I need?

CoolSculpting treatment takes just 35-60 minutes per treatment area, with the smaller areas taking less time. You may only need one treatment, but it depends on your specific goals. Your Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics care provider helps you design a custom CoolSculpting treatment plan to reach your goals.

When will I see results after CoolSculpting?

You could notice results as soon as three weeks post-treatment. Most patients see optimal results after two months, but you continue shedding dead fat cells for as long as 4-6 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.
