When relying purely on diet and exercise, contouring your ideal body can feel almost impossible. Stubborn pockets of fat like belly bulges, thigh bumps and love handles can prevent you from building a strong, healthy and toned physique. CoolSculpting is a highly advanced procedure that works to freeze away unwanted fat and sculpt your desired figure. For those seeking an alternative to non-surgical options like liposuction, CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared device designed to eliminate unwanted fat pads and shape your body into a slimmer, more defined physique. At California Dermatology Care, we are proud to offer patients a safe and effective way to reduce fat around the body and achieve noticeable and lasting results. With no downtime required, CoolSculpting is a convenient and comfortable option for those seeking to contour their body and feel more confident about their appearance from every angle. For maximum results, we recommend incorporating this procedure into a healthy lifestyle by exercising three times a week and minimizing carbohydrate intake. While CoolSculpting works to freeze away stubborn pockets of fat, a balanced diet and regular exercise will support the body’s fat loss and toning overall.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat loss treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat around the body that have not responded to diet or exercise. This process begins with the innovative CoolSculpting device, which gently suctions the tissue in place while the cooling effect works to gradually destroy the fat cells. After the procedure, the fat cells are systematically flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system, removing them permanently. So long as you maintain a stable and healthy weight, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of a toned and well-defined physique.
At California Dermatology Care in San Ramon, we are proud to be among the first in the East Bay to offer dual sculpting with two applicators, as well as CoolAdvantage, which can cut treatment time in half while treating even more tissue, and CoolMini, which is specifically designed to reduce submental neck fat, also known as the double chin. Since multiple areas can be addressed simultaneously, we have created an efficient and multi-purpose treatment experience where multiple cycles can be performed in a single session. The adaptable CoolSculpting procedure means that we can tailor the cycle specifically to your needs, concerns and body shape. Through this process, we can produce personalized and satisfying results to help you achieve your ideal figure with no downtime.
Procedure & Device Safety
CoolSculpting technology delivers precise, controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the surface skin unaffected. The highly developed system is also the only controlled cooling device designed with built-in safety measures, which means if the skin is overcooling, the system will shut down automatically. With over six million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, the procedure has a long record of safety.
Areas of Treatment
At California Dermatology Care, we perform the CoolSculpting treatments for patients with various issues and areas of concern. CoolSculpting’s versatile technology means that the procedure can eliminate fat from almost anywhere on the body, including the arms, back and bra area, or under the buttocks. Some of the most common areas of treatment include:
CoolSculpting under the chin and neck area can provide transformative results to your profile. For those seeking to reduce the double-chin appearance, this treatment can destroy fat cells under the chin to slim and reshape the lower face. By freezing away the submental fat, the procedure can not only remove the double chin but also redefine the jawline to create a more toned facial structure.
At California Dermatology Care, the abdomen is one of the most common areas of treatment. Stubborn belly bulges can significantly impact your appearance and the way you look and feel in certain clothes. Our CoolSculpting treatment has helped many patients achieve a slimmer tummy and well-proportioned look that has restored confidence in their body and overall appearance.
Inner & Outer Thighs
Even with regular exercise and diet, it can feel almost impossible to eliminate stubborn fat around the thighs. CoolSculpting for the inner and outer thighs is a popular treatment area for those looking to remove the ‘saddlebag’ appearance and sculpt a smoother, less bulky lower frame. By freezing away fat on the thighs, this treatment works to slim and contour the lower body for shapely curves and better definition.
Hips and Flanks
The flanks, also known as the muffin top or love handles, can significantly affect your shape and make you feel wider and more uncomfortable in certain clothes. CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the area and provide transformative results to your mid-body frame. This non-invasive and comfortable procedure can provide the finishing touches that encourage you to feel happier and more confident about your body.
Results of CoolSculpting
At California Dermatology Care, patients who underwent CoolSculpting have experienced an average of 25% fat reduction, with some achieving even more. Many of our patients have also reported feeling more comfortable in clothing, achieving a better fit after two months, and optimal clinical results within four months of their CoolSculpting treatment. It is important to note that patients who gain weight after the procedure may experience a redistribution of fat pads to untreated areas. For maximum results, we recommend achieving a stable and healthy weight before undergoing CoolSculpting to ensure you can maintain your new, well-defined physique.
While CoolSculpting is designed primarily to reduce fat pads around the body, some patients also see improvement in skin laxity due to the inflammatory process that occurs within the first few weeks of treatment. At our premier body contouring facility, we also offer two non-invasive technologies that work to facilitate further skin tightening, Thermage CPT and FLX via radiofrequency technology, and Vzet via ultrasound technology. Though these can be performed as a single procedure, some patients find it beneficial to combine CoolSculpting with Skin Tightening for more comprehensive results. Alternatively, for those seeking to reduce fat and build muscle, CoolSculpting can be combined with EMSCULPT to help lift, shape and strengthen target areas of the body. During your consultation, we can work with you to design a treatment plan tailored to your needs and aesthetic goals.
