CoolSculpting 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
