Also known as Fat Reduction by Freezing
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting ® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical skin treatment way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting ® in our Alameda and Brentwood practice involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.
What to expect during the CoolSculpting® procedure?
CoolSculpting ® is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
What to expect during the recovery for the CoolSculpting®?
There is no required recovery time and many patients are able to immediately resume their daily activities without a hindrance caused by surgery. There is no downtime with this procedure for most individuals, in-fact, many patients drive straight to work after the procedure. Some patients experience side-affects after the treatment, including bruising, swelling, a tingling sensation, and small aches. These effects are resolved within the first few weeks.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

“I feel confident in a two-piece bathing suit. I haven’t had a two-piece on in years and I can walk around with it on. I have a form fitting dress on and when I walk down the street I feel confident. CoolSculpting is probably one of the best things I’ve ever done.” – Paige
