CoolSculpting at Spa West

CoolSculpting® is the treatment doctors use most for nonsurgical fat reduction. CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells and naturally eliminates them. CoolSculpting® is designed to help you achieve your body contouring goals—with no surgery and little to no downtime.

CoolSculpting body contouring treatments use cryolipolysis, or fat freezing, to target stubborn areas of fat without surgery. The device freezes and kills fat cells without harming the neighboring skin, nerves, vessels, or muscles, so there’s no downtime afterward. It typically takes less than an hour to treat each area.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved it for treating areas of the body like the abdomen, flanks (aka love handles), bra fat, inner and outer thighs, back fat, upper arms, and buttock rolls (also called banana rolls).

It’s also cleared by the FDA to treat submental fat (commonly known as a double chin) with a special applicator called the CoolMini.

CoolSculpting FAQS

You’re active. You eat healthily. But if you still have areas of stubborn fat that won’t go away, it might be time to consider CoolSculpting®.

A CoolSculpting® treatment typically takes as little as 35-75 minutes, depending on the area treated, with treatment sessions lasting 1-3 hours on average. For most patients, two or more treatment sessions are recommended to help reach their body contouring goals.

Your treatment will take 35 to 60 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

Here’s how most treatments go:

  • You’ll lie down, and your provider will map out the specific areas you want to target with a pen.
  • They’ll lay a protective gel pad over your skin before applying a paddle to the treatment area.
  • Your skin and fat get suctioned into the paddle, which lowers your tissue to the CoolSculpting temperature of -10ºC.
  • When your treatment time is up, your provider will remove the paddle and massage the frozen fat (which some doctors call a “butterstick” because it looks so much like a frozen lump of butter) to kick-start your body’s natural process of excreting dead fat cells.

No, CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss solution: it’s a nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment that can help sculpt your body.
It works best for relatively fit people within 20 pounds of their ideal weight, who just want to target pockets of unwanted fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise.

You will have a few minutes of discomfort from the intense cold and pressure before the area goes numb, but most people don’t find the experience painful after that. Some RealSelf members say they felt comfortable enough during their treatment to read, watch TV, or nap.
The manufacturer says that “you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site.” As the area becomes numb, these symptoms will subside.
Applicator updates in recent years have made the treatment more comfortable and effective.

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and considered a safe medical treatment if you’re a good candidate.
Knockoff machines sold around the world sometimes find their way into stateside spas and medical practices, so make sure you’re getting the real thing.

CoolSculpting recovery experiences vary, depending on how your body responds and how many areas you’ve had treated. Here’s what you can expect:

  • You’ll be able to walk out of the office and carry on with your day, but you may feel sore or notice swelling. Many people choose to take the remainder of the day to rest and relax.
  • It can be helpful to wear Spanx or compression garments for the first few days, to help ease swelling and discomfort.
  • After about five days, you’ll probably feel nerve twinges in the treatment area, a normal sensation as nerves regenerate. Sometimes described as stinging, cramping, or tingling, this usually subsides quickly. If it lasts longer or feels painful, reach out to your provider for recommendations on treating the pain.
  • One to two weeks post-procedure, it’s common to feel itchy in the treated area. This is a histamine reaction to the inflammatory process of clearing fat cells, and it can be treated with oral antihistamines.
  • Numbness in the treated area typically resolves within three weeks.
  • Your body will flush out the damaged fat cells for three to four months post-procedure. Drink plenty of water and take good care of yourself by opting for healthy food and exercise.

To speed up results, doctors recommend maintaining a healthy weight and choosing a healthy, natural diet, as well as exercising at least 60 minutes a day.
A 2015 study also recommends massaging the treatment area for five minutes immediately following the treatment. This can help improve fat volume reduction by up to 68% after the initial two months.

The fat cells removed by the treatment are permanently gone, so CoolSculpting results can be permanent if you don’t gain weight afterward. A healthy diet and regular exercise will help you make the most of your investment.

If you gain weight, fat cells that remain in the treated areas will expand. You could also develop contour irregularities as more numerous fat cells in surrounding areas expand.
