Nobody likes to be fat, and nobody wants to look fat. In the ever-growing landscape of technology, new techniques have been introduced to help people lose weight through medical procedures. At SKIN MedSpa, our number one goal is to make you look your best and give you the results you deserve. At our practice, we offer a new state of the art technique called Coolsculpting.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting San Francisco | Skin Medical Spa

The CoolSculpting® procedure is a fat freezing treatment that eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This non-invasive treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure that uses patented cooling technology to safely target your problem areas and remove unwanted diet and exercise-resistant fat.

Ideal Candidates for Fat Freezing

CoolSculpting candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution, however, it is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

During your consultation at SKIN Medical Spa, Dr. Colvin will develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. After we select the treatment area(s), the CoolSculpting device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied.

“I really enjoy visiting Skin Med Spa! Everyone is so personable and knowledgable. I feel like I really get specialized treatment for my skin.” -Samantha

How Does CoolSculpting Freeze Fat?

CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The procedure reduces the temperature of fat cells in the treated area, which then become crystallized or frozen, and then they die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

Length of A CoolSculpting Treatment

The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. If necessary, we may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals. To pass the time, patients often choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.

What is CoolAdvantage?

CoolAdvantage is the newest CoolSculpting applicator. It delivers CoolSculpting’s cooling technology in 35 minutes, instead of the standard 60 minutes. Additionally, this applicator provides more comfort by using a lower temperature.

What To Expect After a Fat Freezing Treatment

CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Will I Need To Follow a diet or exercise program?

After CoolSculpting treatment patients do not require supplements or pills. Additionally, you do not have to adopt any new diet and exercise habits. However, many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. The results make them feel as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

CoolSculpting Risks And side effects

During the first few minutes of the cooling, you will feel pressure and intense cold but no pain. The fat freezing treatment is completely non-surgical, so patients can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. Following the procedure, typical side effects include:

  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Firmness
  • Tingling
  • Stinging
  • Pain
