CoolSculpting is designed to eliminate and smooth bulging areas of stubborn fat without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-approved and works due to the fact that fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the surrounding tissue cells. The inspiration for the technology responsible for CoolSculpting came from a Harvard study in which doctors noticed that children who ate popsicles regularly developed dimples on their cheeks. It was determined that the cold from the popsicles was destroying the fat cells on the inside of the cheeks.
This technology was further developed to include built-in sensors to ensure that the treatment areas are not exposed to extreme cold. This allows the device to safely and effectively deliver controlled cooling that crystallizes and reduces unwanted fat cells. As unwanted fat cells are destroyed, they are naturally and permanently eliminated from the body.
Your first step is to meet with our practitioners for a consultation and discuss a treatment plan. Treatment will begin sitting or lying down depending on the area of the procedure. A gel pad will be placed on the area to be treated to protect the skin and then the applicator will be applied.
As the cooling begins, patients can experience pressure and intense cold that will soon dissipate within the first few minutes. At this point, patients might experience numbness in the treatment area. While the treatment crystallizes unwanted fat cells, patients can read, watch videos, email, or even take a nap. Each area is treated for one hour and after the device is removed, your practitioner will massage the treated area to break up the fat cells.
CoolSculpting is fully FDA-Approved for use in several areas where stubborn fat deposits are common:
Results with CoolSculpting are noticeable as soon as three weeks after treatment, with most dramatic results 2-3 months after treatment. Some treatment areas require 2 to 3 treatments to reach desired results.
Patients can expect to lose up to 25% of fat in treated areas with CoolSculpting Beverly Hills. Results are long-lasting as the treated fat cells are permanently eliminated from the body. However, remaining fat cells will continue to grow or shrink with changes in weight following CoolSculpting. *Individual results may vary.

No. While CoolSculpting does rid the body of unwanted fat cells in specific areas, CoolSculpting is not a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise. It is ideal for treating stubborn pockets of fat that have proven unresponsive to diet and exercise.
Healthy lifestyle choices such as maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise, and sufficient fluid intake can make a significant difference in patients’ CoolSculpting results and result longevity.
It is typically recommended that patients space their CoolSculpting treatments at least 60 days apart.
Massaging treated areas at least twice a day following treatment will help to prevent or reduce swelling and the development of scar tissue.
It is recommended to wear loose, comfortable clothing following treatment to prevent any additional or unnecessary discomfort.
Patients should not expect to experience a drastic change in their appearance on the day of their treatment. Most CoolSculpting patients begin to notice improvement about 3 weeks after treatment, with significant results emerging roughly 2 to 4 months after treatment.
While exercise will not impede CoolSculpting results, patients are generally sore following treatment. It is important to allow your body to heal properly, and exercise will likely be uncomfortable.
2 sessions are generally recommended to effectively treat stomach fat.
CoolSculpting is ideal for removing fat from the inside of the thighs. In one study, 93% of patients who received CoolSculpting on their inner thighs were satisfied with their results.
CoolSculpting does not cause any long term damage to the body. However, some swelling, redness, itching, numbness, or soreness may exist in the treatment area for up to 2 weeks following treatment. Rarely, enlargement of the treated area may occur. It is important to contact your doctor with any concerns or treatment-related issues.
