You can watch what you eat, count calories, and get close to your ideal body weight, yet still have love handles, a double chin, or other areas of nagging fat. When you’re ready to get rid of that fat for good, it’s time to consider CoolSculpting®. Dr. Keith, Dr. Chase, and Dr. Humiston at SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics proudly offer CoolSculpting to freeze away your persistent problem areas. To schedule an appointment, call one of the offices in West Covina or Anaheim, California, or use the online booking tool.
Noninvasive body contouring refers to nonsurgical procedures that permanently remove stubborn areas of fat. While these procedures are very effective, they’re not used for extensive weight loss. Instead, they gently reshape your body by targeting specific problem areas.
The team at SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics performs body contouring using the innovative CoolSculpting® system. You can use CoolSculpting to permanently eliminate fat under your chin, as well as on your abdomen, flanks, upper arms, back, and thighs.
You’ll relax in the comfortable treatment chair while your provider at SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics places a gel pad on your skin above the fat being treated. The system has differently sized applicators designed to fit different areas of your body. The appropriate applicator is placed on top of the pad, and the machine is turned on.
Gentle suction pulls the fat up between two cooling panels. The fat cells under your skin are more sensitive to cool temperatures than your skin. The CoolSculpting handpiece lowers the temperature just enough to freeze the fat cells without harming your skin. After they’re frozen, the fat cells die and break down, and your body eliminates the waste.
When your treatment first starts, you feel pressure as suction pulls up the fat. You also feel the cold temperature. These sensations last 5-10 minutes, or until the area turns numb from the cold.
One CoolSculpting session lasts about 35-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. When the handpiece is removed, your provider massages your skin for a short time to help relax the frozen area.
Some patients have side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, or firmness of the treated area. You may also experience numbness, stinging, tingling, and tenderness.
It takes your body time to eliminate the destroyed fat cells. You begin to notice the difference in about three weeks, with optimal results appearing in two months.* Since your body can continue eliminating fat cells for up to six months, you may continue to see improvement.
When you want to get rid of the fat that diet and exercise can’t eliminate, call SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics or book an appointment online.
