CoolSculpting is an innovative non-surgical fat reduction and body contouring treatment. It permanently gets rid of unwanted fat through a process called cryolipolysis, which is essentially destroying fat cells by freezing them. Targeted fats cells are removed by the body with no damage or trauma to the surrounding tissue. The treatment involves placing a CoolSculpting device or applicator on specific body areas such as the stomach, love handles or inner thighs. A light suction keeps the applicators in place while the excess bulges are slowly frozen between two cooling panels. Typically 2-3 treatments are recommended for optimum results; however, some improvements can be noticeable after the first treatment. Does CoolSculpting work? On average, most patients can experience 20-25% reduction of fat after each session. Learn more about CoolSculpting cost, see before and after photos, and find location near me in San Francisco.
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for permanent fat reduction on the abdomen, flanks (love-handles), inner thighs, outer thighs (saddle bags) arms, back and neck/chin. This procedure is very effective for eliminating stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise.* CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure, however. The ideal candidate is someone within 20 lbs of their normal body weight and who would like to do CoolSculpting for body contouring and to achieve a more pleasing shape. For patients in this category, CoolSculpting® is a safe, non-invasive alternative to liposuction because it delivers similar results with little downtime. Even when compared to other non-invasive fat reduction procedures like SculpSure®, which uses heat to destroy fat cells, it turns out freezing your fat has been proven to be far more efficient and comfortable.

During treatment you will feel slow cooling combined with some pressure and firmness at the same time. Most patients undergoing CoolSculpting can read, do light work on their laptops or even take a nap. The procedure can last anywhere from one hour or more, depending on the areas being treated. It is possible to schedule treatments at separate intervals in order to accommodate busy schedules or to split up the sessions. Results will start to be noticeable after 8-10 weeks but allow up to 12-16 weeks for full fat reduction from each session.* CoolSculpting results can be enhanced and maintained in the long-term by incorporating a healthy, well-balanced diet with regular exercise. For many of our patients this procedure inspires them to be more mindful of their health and determined to continue looking great after the fat comes off. Your CoolSculpting cost will depend of where you live and how many parts of the body you’re looking to treat. We invite you to book a consultation at Azala Medical Aesthetics in the San Francisco Union Square to discuss your fat reduction goals and whether this treatment is right for you.
