What is Coolsculpting?

Achieve remarkable fat loss results without surgery or downtime

Since its inception, Coolsculpting has quickly become one of America’s most popular and in-demand forms of non-surgical body sculpting, giving millions of patients a new lease on life.

Coolsculpting is an innovative technology that freezes the fat cells, which are then flushed out by the body as waste. The process is remarkably effective on areas of stubborn fat that do not respond to dieting or exercise.

Before & After

Good candidates:

  • Fat deposits in the key areas of the arms, legs, belly, hips, thighs and bra region
  • Normal skin elasticity
  • Good health, both mentally and physically
  • No major medical issues
  • Realistic expectation for improvement rather than perfection

Poor Candidates

  • Patients suffering from obesity
  • Those with weak skin elasticity
  • Clients with eczema, dermatitis or severe scarring
  • Those with unrealistic expectations for their results

How does Coolsculpting work?

Coolsculpting uses two cooling panels with suction to encase the fat. While being carefully monitored by a computer, the temperature of the fat deposits is slowly lowered to the point of crystallization. The fat cells die, and are escorted out of the body as waste, never to return.

  • On the day of your procedure, your Certified CoolSculpting Specialist will weigh you, photograph you and sterilize your skin. The treatment areas will be covered with a soothing gel layer that protects it from the cold. The applicators will then be affixed to the fatty deposits.
  • The sensation of Coolsculpting can be peculiar if you’re not used to it, but can feel like a mild pulling as the vacuum goes into effect. The cold can feel like a slight sting, but nothing more intense than a sunburn, for instance.
  • The Coolsculpting procedure takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on how many areas are treated. Once the procedure is over, your skin may be slightly reddish and cold, but within 20 minutes you will notice visible improvement.


In addition to CoolSculpting, Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery also offers DualSculpting, which cuts the treatment time in half in most cases. DualSculpting is the use of two devices as opposed to one.
