CoolSculpting FAQs

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting employs the principle of cryolipolysis, utilizing controlled cooling to lower the temperature of targeted fat cells. This exposure to extreme cold triggers crystallization within the fat cells, leading to their gradual breakdown. Subsequently, the body’s natural metabolic processes flush out the fragmented fat cells over a few weeks, resulting in a visible reduction of fat in the treated area without harming surrounding tissues.

How does CoolSculpting help with spot reduction?

CoolSculpting achieves spot reduction by freezing and permanently eliminating unwanted fat cells in targeted areas. Genetic factors determine the number and distribution of fat cells in each person, and this remains uniform throughout life. While diet and exercise can shrink fat cells, they cannot eliminate unwanted fat deposits. That’s why spot reduction is impossible through exercise and dieting alone. CoolSculpting in Palo Alto is an extremely targeted procedure that helps you permanently kill and eliminate unwanted fat.

Can CoolSculpting help with weight loss?

CoolSculpting is not designed for significant weight loss. Rather, it is most effective for individuals already near their goal weight, aiming to address localized pockets of stubborn fat. The procedure’s focus is on contouring and sculpting specific areas — not overall weight reduction. If you are overweight or suffering from obesity, CoolSculpting will be a better choice for you once you are almost near your ideal weight.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you are near your goal weight and seeking a solution for localized fat that resists diet and exercise, CoolSculpting could be ideal for you. Whether it’s love handles, belly fat, or other trouble spots, this non-invasive treatment can provide effective results. A consultation with our experts will help determine if CoolSculpting aligns with your body sculpting goals.

How is CoolSculpting performed?

During your session of CoolSculpting in Palo Alto, a specialized applicator will be placed on the targeted area. You will experience a cooling sensation as the device delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells underneath your skin. You might feel a slight pinching sensation when the treatment starts, but the sensation dissipates soon enough. The procedure is non-invasive and comfortable, allowing you to relax, read, or even work during the treatment. The overall treatment time depends on the number of treatment areas — each treatment area takes 35 minutes.

Is CoolSculpting painful?

CoolSculpting generally causes mild discomfort or a cold sensation during the procedure, but discomfort is minimal, and no anesthesia is needed.

What are the side effects?

After CoolSculpting, you might experience temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area. These effects are generally mild and subside on their own. Rarely, you might notice tingling or aching sensations, which also resolve over time.

Is there any downtime?

No, CoolSculpting in Palo Alto requires minimal to no downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. This makes it an excellent option for individuals with busy schedules seeking effective fat reduction without downtime.

When will the CoolSculpting results appear?

You will begin noticing gradual improvements within a few weeks as your body naturally eliminates treated fat cells. Final results typically emerge within 8 weeks.

How many CoolSculpting sessions will I need for optimal results?

On average, about 3 to 6 sessions are required per treatment area to achieve the best outcomes. Our experts will personalize a plan to address your specific goals.

How long do the CoolSculpting results last?

CoolSculpting results are long-lasting since treated fat cells are permanently eliminated. However, while the eliminated fat cells can’t return, the existing fat cells in the area can still expand if you gain weight. That’s why it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
