What Is CoolSculpting?
There’s a good reason CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive fat removal procedure in the world and It works! Since hitting the market in 2010, over 2 million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed in over 70 countries, with an unprecedented 93% customer satisfaction rating. This FDA-cleared, patented technology called cryolypolisys, permanently removes unwanted fat cells without surgery, needles, lasers, diet, exercise, stimulants, or medications. And best of all, it does so with no downtime. We know it sounds too good to be true, but year after year more and more people are discovering for themselves that this is no gimmick. Unlike so many other body sculpting devices that have come and gone, Coolsculpting is here to stay.

Coolsculpting in Redondo Beach
Our male clients love Coolsculpting just as much our female clients. We’ve treated men and women of all ages, from 18 to 80, with equally fantastic results. It works on a wide range of body types, from those who are clinically overweight and looking to jump start a weight loss program, to those who are generally fit but still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that are difficult to target, and everyone else in between. The post-pregnancy belly is one of the more often treated areas. As moms know, even when all the pounds have come of, that last little bulge feels impossible to get rid of.
So how does it work?
During a Coolsculpting treatment, suction is applied to the problem area and the fatty tissue is exposed to cold plates inside the suction head for a period of 60 minutes. There is a minimal amount of discomfort during the initial 5-10 minutes as a result of the suction, after which time the area just feels cool and/or numb, and clients are comfortable enough to take a nap or watch a movie for the remainder of the treatment. No anesthetic is required, and no special preparation is necessary. Depending on the shape and size of the treatment area, this 60 minute process may be repeated one or more times in succession, and other body areas may be treated on the same day. Currently we are able to treat the abdomen, sides (“love handles”), flanks, back, inner and outer thighs, arms, submental fat (double chin), knees, and axillary fat (armpit). After your treatment there are no special instructions to follow and you may go back to your regular activities immediately. Some clients experience soreness or tenderness at the area that can last from hours to weeks, and this typically resolves on its own without any treatment. The area will be slightly red immediately after your treatment. Mild bruising is occasionally reported, as is numbness and tingling. These are all temporary side effects and resolve quickly.
What happens next?
Once the adipocytes (fat cells) in your body reach a certain temperature, the lipids inside the cell crystallize, signaling the cell to turn off, a process called apoptosis. Since fat freezes at a higher temperature than any other cell in the body, nothing other than your fat is harmed in this process, making it an incredibly safe option for eliminating fat without causing widespread inflammation or damage to other structures in the body.
When do I see results?
Adipocytes die within the first few days after a treatment. They are subsequently picked up by white blood cells and eliminated through the liver and kidneys in a natural, slow process that is occurring constantly in our bodies. Visible results are typically seen around 3 to 4 weeks and continue for up to 90 days. An average of 25% fat reduction is expected after one treatment. Best of all, the fat cells are permanently eliminated, as adults cannot regenerate new fat cells beyond adolescence.
