Removing fat around the abdomen, chin, arms and legs has never been easier.With Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center’s new CoolSculpting service, we can “freeze the fat” in an hour or less with no downtime. With more than six million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure.
How it works
CoolSculpting technology delivers precisely controlled cooling temperatures to the fat cells under the skin in targeted areas. The treated cells are frozen or crystallized so the body is triggered to naturally eliminate the dead cells, leaving you with a slimmer area.
The procedure takes about an hour total. Most people say that the treatment is so comfortable that they sit back and read a magazine, nap, or listen to music while it’s happening. After treatment, you can return to your regular activities. There is no downtime and it does not require garments like liposuction treatment.
You will see improvement over the next weeks and months. Some areas will require more than one treatment but this is often determined at the time of the consultation.

Is CoolSculpting Right for You?
If you have fat areas on your body that are resistant to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting may be the perfect fit. Men and women who have bulges in areas on their abdomen, chin, arms and legs that do not change from a healthy lifestyle, find CoolSculpting to work wonders. The most important step to answering this question though, is to schedule a consultation from a professional.

TREATMENT DAY ANSWERS
How Cold does it get? Does it hurt?
As you may expect, the CoolSculpting procedure will feel a little chilly. For the first 5 to 10 minutes, you may feel intense cold as the treated area becomes numb. Since most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue in, you may also feel some tugging, pulling, and/or mild pinching.
Can I multitask during my treatment?
Yes, you can absolutely multitask during your CoolSculpting treatment. You are encouraged to read, check your emails, take a nap, or whatever feels comfortable for you. You can relax while you say goodbye to stubborn fat.
Is there any downtime?
Because the CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, it’s typically very easy to return to your normal activities after the treatment. Often, patients go back to work on the same day. When you have a CoolSculpting treatment, there are no needles, no surgery, and no downtime.
AM I A CANDIDATE
The CoolSculpting procedure is designed for people who want to eliminate fat bulges in specific areas. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass). People who choose CoolSculpting often want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas.
Where does the fat go?
The frozen fat cells become crystallized, then die. The dead fat cells then are naturally processed and eliminated by your body. Some patients wonder if the results are permanent. CoolSculpting results are long term because those fat cells, and that fat bulge, are gone for good.
When will I see results?
You may start seeing changes in your body as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment. The most dramatic results are usually visible after 2 months. Several months after your treatment, your body will still continue to flush out fat cells.
Will I need supplements?
After your CoolSculpting treatment, no special supplements are required. You won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits because it’s not a diet and exercise program. Many people do feel more motivated to take good care of themselves after a CoolSculpting treatment. They look better, they feel better, and they want to keep their reshaped body healthy.
Are there side effects?
Typical side effects after the procedure include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain. For a few hours after the applicator is removed, many patients do experience redness in the treated area. In rare cases, this redness may persist for a few days, up to 2 weeks, but it will completely resolve itself.
