CoolSculpting®: Does it Really Work?

CoolSculpting: "It really works!"

Hearing hype about CoolSculpting, but not sure it’s the real deal? At our medical spa in San Diego, we hear questions all the time about whether the buzzed-about treatment actually works and if it’s worth a try.

In this blog post, we’re diving into the science behind the treatment and sharing a few real before-and-after transformations to give you the true skinny on CoolSculpting.

Read on to learn more about how it works, what results you can expect, and whether the fat-freezing treatment is right for you.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It freezes fat away by cooling and destroying fat cells, which your body then naturally metabolizes. It’s perfect for slimming your abdomen, thighs, flanks, double chin, and other spots that resist diet and exercise.

It requires little to no downtime and leads to visible, lasting results in a matter of weeks. The treatment itself only takes about 35 minutes per treatment area.

Because La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa has three CoolSculpting machines on-site, we can treat multiple areas simultaneously and save you even more time. We call this TriSculpting.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting works through a process called cryolipolysis. In this process, controlled cooling kills off fat cells without harming surrounding tissues. For the next couple of months following your procedure, your body naturally flushes out these treated cells.

In clinical studies, cryolipolysis reduced subcutaneous fat (the fat between your skin and muscle) by up to 25% in just a single treatment.

Is CoolSculpting right for me?

CoolSculpting is a fantastic option for anyone who is dedicated to a healthy lifestyle but wants to slim down targeted areas—think muffin top, banana roll, or saddlebags.

It’s important to keep in mind that it is not a weight-loss procedure or a substitute for diet and exercise. Instead, it’s a way to slim down those frustrating trouble spots and enjoy a shape you feel terrific about.
