How Long Before I Can See CoolSculpting Results? 

CoolSculpting Results

CoolSculpting is a cutting edge aesthetic treatment to cut down stubborn fats and create enhanced body contours. However, it is not a weight loss procedure, and targets certain areas of the body where excess fat accumulation has occurred, which has become resistant to diet and exercise.  Rejuenvate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations. 

How long does a single treatment last? 

One treatment session of CoolSculpting will usually last for about one hour or less, depending on the size of the treated area and the amount of fat reduction required. The CoolSculpting provider will create a customized treatment plan in close consultation with the patient. The date and time of the treatment session can be fixed as per the patient’s convenience.   With CoolSculpting, you will not need to set aside any time from your regular work because you can schedule it during your lunch hour from work. Almost no downtime may be necessary in most cases. You could also try to schedule your treatment session on a weekend when you are more relaxed in terms of your daily work. 

What about follow-up treatments with CoolSculpting?  

You can expect to get rid of up to 20 percent of your excess fat in the treated sites with a CoolSculpting treatment. Depending on your condition and your personal cosmetic goals, the treatment provider will determine how many treatment sessions you may need. In general, a patient may have to go through two to four sessions to achieve optimal fat reduction. 

When can I see the results?  

Results with CoolSculpting will start becoming visible after about three weeks. As the fat cells disintegrate and get eliminated from the body, the patient can experience a slimmer appearance. In most cases, you will see a reduction in fat within three weeks. In some cases, the final results won’t appear until six months after the treatment. 

Are the results permanent?  

CoolSculpting results can be maintained for a long time or even permanently. The only condition is that the patient must maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Any cosmetic fat reduction procedure is not a replacement for diet and exercise. If the patient gives up an active lifestyle or healthy diet, the fats may start depositing again in the specific areas of the body. 

Improving and Increasing Coolsculpting Results 

Have you ever wondered how to speed up Coolsculpting results? The ideal way to maintain and improve your fat reduction results is to follow a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and keep a healthy lifestyle. In combination with CoolSculpting, your personal commitment to your health and fitness will work wonders over time.   It’s vital to understand at the outset that the frozen fat cells will take some time to get eliminated from your body through the natural metabolic process. Therefore, the results will develop gradually over several weeks and months. During this period, you should be conscious about what you eat and how you exercise so that you can achieve the best possible outcomes.   Rejuvenate Med Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

Does CoolSculpting Really Work to Permanently Remove Fat? 

CoolSculpting Fat Removal

For people who want to get rid of excess fat deposits in certain body areas without cosmetic surgery, a wide range of non-invasive treatment options are available today. One of the most popular and effective among these options is CoolSculpting. This unique med spa procedure is completely non-surgical and yet produces substantial fat reduction outcomes.   However, new patients may feel uncertain about the true efficacy of CoolSculpting, considering that is a non-invasive procedure based on a unique cooling procedure, and involves no incisions, needles, or medications. The treatment expert will educate the patient about the benefits of CoolSculpting and how it works.   Rejuenvate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.  

Treatment Delivery 

CoolSculpting is a safe and proven, FDA cleared treatment that actually kills the unwanted fat cells by freezing the fat. The patient simply sits or relaxes in a medical spa setting, while the treatment provider uses a patented CoolSculpting applicator to slowly freeze and eliminate the fat cells.   Each treatment session lasts for about 45 minutes, and can easily fit into a patient’s personal or work schedule. After the session, they can simply go back to their normal routine of the day.  

Real Results  

Once the unwanted fat cells are frozen, they begin to crystallize and die. The dead cells get eliminated from the body over a few weeks. Patients can often notice the difference after just one treatment session, but can achieve greater fat removal over multiple treatments. In most cases, the patient will experience about 20 percent fat removal in the targeted areas. Most dramatic results are visible in about three months after CoolSculpting.   A lot of patients may be satisfied with just a single treatment session of CoolSculpting, where they can have a significant fat reduction of up to 20 percent. However, if the patient wants fat reduction in multiple areas or deeper results, they may undergo more treatment sessions. These types of decisions will be made on a case by case basis, depending on the patient’s body type, their individual cosmetic goals and medical condition.  

Freedom from Unwanted Fat – Permanently!  

The cooling technique of CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard scientists. Once the treatment exposes the fat cells to a cold temperature and makes them freeze, these cells will gradually disintegrate. The disintegrated fat cells will then be permanent re-absorbed by the body.  Therefore, the final results of CoolSculpting involve permanent elimination of fat cells. The fat cells once killed off will not return. However, CoolSculpting is not a substitute for a balanced diet and regular exercise. A healthy routine will prevent the occurrence of new fat deposits in the treated areas.  

Patient Feedback 

New patients should take a look at the testimonials and feedback of past patients that have benefitted from CoolSculpting. They can also learn more about CoolSculpting on Internet forums, social media, and websites where past patients may like to share their experience and response to this treatment.   In any case, patients should know that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss technique, but a fat reduction procedure to help them achieve improved body contours. Rejuvenate Med Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

What is CoolSculpting Treatment Like?

What is CoolSculpting Treatment Like? | Calabasas Medical Spa | EncinoCoolSculpting is an FDA cleared non-surgical med spa procedure to improve body contours by eliminating excess fat pockets in certain areas of the body.  Patients can expect to achieve safe and predictable body sculpting results with this procedure without going through any significant discomfort or risk. At the time of pre-op consultation, the CoolSculpting expert will explain the steps involved in the procedure. While the CoolSculpting technology is groundbreaking, the procedure itself is quite simple. Treatment sessions can even be scheduled during a patient’s lunch break from work. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.  

Initial Consultation

The first step in the CoolSculpting procedure will be a one-on-one consultation with the treatment provider. The provider will educate the patient about how this procedure works, and which areas can be best treated to remove stubborn fat tissue. The med spa treatment provider will examine the patient’s unwanted bulges and the degree of skin elasticity to determine their candidacy and recommend the most appropriate CoolSculpting fat reduction plan.  

Treatment Session

A single treatment session of CoolSculpting may take about 35 to 40 minutes with advanced device applicators. No specific preparation is required beforehand, and the patient will have no food restrictions. Best results with CoolSculpting are typically achieved in about three to six sessions, with each session spaced about a month apart.  No cuts, incisions, medications, needles, or anesthesia will be involved in the treatment. The patient can comfortably relax in a recliner while the treatment is being performed. They can stay awake and read a book, surf the Internet using their cell phone, or listen to music during the treatment session.   

Procedure 

The area of treatment will be marked, and then the provider will place the CoolSculpting device over the site for focused cooling action. A gel pad and a specially designed applicator will be used to deliver the cooling. The system includes vacuum applicators, which will be used to draw the tissue into the applicator cup. The applicator will be secured to the area of the treatment and will deliver targeted cooling to the unwanted fatty tissue layers.  The high precision cooling action will not affect the surrounding healthy tissue. At the start, the patient is likely to feel cold, but the feeling will improve within a few minutes as numbness occurs in the cooled site. The patient may feel minor sensation of pulling, tugging, or pinching in the treated site because of the vacuum process to draw fats to the applicator cup.   

Innovative Applicators 

Difficult to reach areas such as the submental area under the chin can be treated with a unique CoolMini applicator. An advanced CoolSmooth applicator tip can remove stubborn fat tissue even from areas where pinching of the fat is not possible. For example, fat elimination from the outer thighs is now possible even if the area has a thin layer of cellulite.  The treatment provider will simply run the applicator tip over the outer thigh to create smoother and slimmer contours. Rejuvenate Med Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat? | Calabasas Medical Spa | EncinoCoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring treatment that works best in certain areas of the body. Surface fat that can be pinched between fingers (such as chin fat, inner thighs, and tummy rolls) can be reduced most effectively with CoolSculpting.  Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting body contouring to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

Flanks

CoolSculpting is an ideal med spa procedure to eliminate unsightly bulges on the sides of the waist (commonly known as “love handles”). Even when weight loss has not helped in reducing these bulges, CoolSculpting will successfully remove the stubborn fat deposits in this area in most cases. You can wear tight-fitting clothes after the treatment and will not need to hide the sides any longer.

Abdomen 

This is an area where the body stores fat most easily. It can be difficult to eliminate abdominal fat with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting can help restore a tighter and flatter tummy with permanent removal of unwanted fat cells in this area. 

Thighs 

One of the areas where most people struggle to reduce excess fat is the thighs. CoolSculpting can deliver excellent outcomes for fat reduction in both inner and outer thighs. Inner thighs are treated more easily, but even on the outer thighs (“saddle bags”), this treatment can produce satisfactory results in many cases. 

Double Chin

The submental fat or the fat tissue under the chin can create the unsightly appearance of a double chin. With a specially designed Cool Mini applicator, it is possible to reduce the double chin effect in a safe and precise manner. 

Upper Arms

While CoolSculpting is not the right choice for loose skin that may hang from your upper arms, it is the ideal procedure if you want to get rid of fatty tissue in this area. Lumpier and fluffier fat around the upper arms can be treated very effectively with CoolSculpting.

Buttocks

CoolSculpting works well to eliminate stubborn fat pouches underneath your buttocks. The treatment will smooth out the buttock region, making it more contoured and slimmer. The rest of the area of the leg under the buttocks can also be treated successfully with CoolSculpting.

Back

Certain fat pockets in your back can be treated with CoolSculpting. The most commonly treated sites in the back with this procedure include the parts of the lower back extending from the flanks, the mid-back fat on your sides, and the fat tissue under the bra line (called the “bra bulge”). 

When can You See the Results

Results with CoolSculpting are long-lasting but not immediate. In a few weeks following the treatment, you can expect a reduction of about 20 percent in the excess fat deposits. Optimal results will be achieved over a period of two to four months. Results can vary depending on the size and condition of the treated areas and the amount of fat tissue. Rejuvenate Med Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment.

Volume loss caused by acne scarring can be temporarily reversed with a dermal filler gel treatment. The dermal filler injection will produce desirable results immediately and the results will continue to improve over the next several weeks.  This modification and improvement takes place due to the breaking up of some scarred down bands with the injectable filler. The filler gel treatment will also trigger the production of fresh collagen due to the stretching of the fibroblasts.  

Patient Comfort

New AquaDerm Hydrodermabrasion is Being Called The “Celebrity Facial”

New AquaDerm Hydrodermabrasion is The “Celebrity Facial” | Los AngelesOver the years, microdermabrasion has played a vital part in the beauty industry. But the latest innovation, known as AquaDerm Hydrodermabrasion, promises significant benefits over traditional facial rejuvenation techniques.  The popularity of AquaDerm Hydrodermabrasion has rapidly grown. This treatment has been dubbed as the new “celebrity facial” and is being increasingly requested by models, movie stars, and other public figures in med spas all over the world.  Patients are enjoying significant benefits from this treatment, partly due to the fact that it uses the natural healing powers of water and oxygen to exfoliate skin without using hard microcrystals and highly abrasive wands. As the hydrodermabrasion process involves the application of serum during exfoliation, the skin receives more hydration and nutrition that reduces scrubbing induced irritation. The effects of this treatment include moisturized, smoother, tauter, and healthier looking skin.  Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides AquaDerm Hydrodermabrasion to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.  

Improvements with AquaDerm

The AquaDerm moisturizes, exfoliates, and repairs through the combination of TRI Technology:
  • Aqua-dermabrasion
  • Chromotherapy infusion
  • Variable scale nano-diamond tips
The Aquaderm Hydrodermabrasion procedure can address all these skin concerns:
  • Aging: Reduces the appearance of superficial fine lines
  • Blemished/congested skin
  • Dry/flaky skin
  • Thickened and devitalized skin
  • Sun damage, sun/age spots: Helps lift and eliminate compromised pigment cells
  • Patchy, uneven skin tones, and texture
  • Chicken pox and acne scars
  • Hyperkeratosis
The AquaDerm med spa treastment is effective for both the face and the body. It is an ideal solution for dead skin removal, deep cleansing, moisturizing, and infusion skin repairing.  

Why Is Hydrodermabrasion Better Than Microdermabrasion?

In hydrodermabrasion, the patient will receive a serum which is excellent for exfoliation as well as hydration and nutrition. The skin will receive nutritious ingredients in a pain-free manner, and there is no need for any abrasive wands or crystals.  Apart from this, the process itself will not cause any micro-scarring as it is very gentle in comparison to microdermabrasion.  

Who Could Benefit From This Treatment?

For people seeking to get rid of acne, pimples, blackheads, or any other similar issues, hydrodermabrasion is a suitable treatment. The primary function of this treatment is to de-congest the pores and to eliminate any dirt that may be stuck there. Anyone above the age of 16 years can undergo this treatment.   

Is AquaDerm Suitable for People with Sensitive Skin?

Yes, hydrodermabrasion is recommended for individuals with sensitive skin, unlike the harsher microdermabrasion. It might take multiple sessions for someone who has sensitive skin to achieve desirable outcomes. However, it is a significantly better option in the long-run. Doing so avoids the possibility of redness, pain, or irritation. The patient will be left with a healthy glow.  

How Frequently Should You Get This Treatment?

The frequency of undergoing AquaDerm depends entirely on an individual’s preference and skin condition. For example, a person can undergo hydrodermabrasion only once for a big event, such as a wedding. But they can receive more treatments if they have more visible skin issues that they seek to address. It is optimal to undergo six to ten AquaDerm treatment sessions spaced seven to ten days apart for beautiful and sustainable outcomes.
