What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical treatment designed to contour your body by freezing away fat from areas often resistant to diet and exercise like the abdomen, love handles, thighs, under the chin, or other specific areas of the body.
Clinical findings on the effectiveness of CoolSculpting were published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, reporting “Caliper measurements demonstrated 23% reduction in fat layer thickness at 3 months.” Investigator assessments of CoolSculpting before and after pictures concluded “86% of subjects” showed improvement at the treatment area, and patient surveys revealed “82% of patients would recommend the procedure to a friend.”

Coolsculpting: Overview And Benefits
CoolSculpting® functions by employing a scientific method called called Cryolipolysis™ to target and eliminate fat cells. This exclusive process results in minimal discomfort and will not cause any damage to skin. CoolSculpting® results develop as the treated fat cells are progressively shed through the body’s natural evacuation system to gradually reveal a newly contoured shape. Results generally appear as soon as 3 weeks after initial treatment and improve over the next few months. After the first treatment, patients typically see up to 30% fat shrinkage in the treated area.* Multiple sessions may be needed to achieve desired results, depending on patient goals.

Say Goodbye To Stubborn Areas
Where Can CoolSculpting® Be Used?
FREEZE & ELIMINATE FAT
CoolSculpting® is designed to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat in the following areas:
Many people retain fat in the abdomen, even with consistent diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® can slim and tone the tummy by reducing the number of fat cells.
A universally stubborn area for fat retention, CoolSculpting® can treat the flanks and sides to shrink love handles.
Outer Inner Thigh
The thighs are another area that tends to hold onto unwanted fat. CoolSculpting® is an effective treatment for slimming both the inner outer thighs.
Some of us are genetically predisposed to storing fat under the chin. CoolSculpting® can help achieve a slimmer jawline by treating the chin and upper neck area.
Wave with confidence after treating underarms with CoolSculpting®! It can be especially tough to reduce the fat on underside of the arms, but CoolSculpting® can help you tone this area.
The Coolsculpting Procedure
As the first step, you will undergo a thorough consultation to determine if CoolSculpting in Los Angeles is right for you. One of our practitioners will perform an examination as well as find out about your cosmetic goals. During this time, it’s important that you ask any questions you have so you can make an informed decision regarding the procedure.
Once you are ready for your procedure, you will enter our medspa and be comfortably seated or laid down. A gel pad will be placed on the targeted area to protect the skin and the applicator will be applied. The device consists of two cooling panels that are used to properly draw up the skin on the target the area.
The practitioner will then activate the patented freezing power of the CoolSculpting device. During the first few moments, you will feel a cold sensation on your skin, and possibly some discomfort such as tingling or pulling, which should dissipate within the first several minutes. Over the next hour, the cooling panels work to eliminate unwanted fat cells while you read, work or take a nap.
Once the panels have done their job, your practitioner will remove the device. She will then massage the treatment area to break up the crystallized fat cells. This helps them to be reabsorbed by the body and eliminated completely.
Each area will be treated for one hour and you should allow extra time to check in and check out. During your consultation, our staff will be able to help you estimate how much time you will need for the overall procedure.
What To Expect
- A clear gel pad is used as a barrier between the cooling panel and your skin.
- During the treatment, you may feel tugging, intense cold, tingling, or other symptoms at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb.
- Feel free to answer messages on your phone or read during the treatment.
- After the treatment, your provider gently massages the area to break up the targeted fat cells.

With the latest line of fat freezing applicators, Cool Sculpting treatments typically take 35 minutes to complete and the entire process can easily be completed within an hour, hence the nickname “lunchtime lipo.”
It depends on the individual. Cool Sculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, and Venus Cosmetic Surgery spares no expense to ensure you have a pleasant experience. So while every person’s experience is unique, the vast majority of participants in a cryolipolysis study reported they felt comfortable during the procedure.
Unlike typical liposuction or a tummy tuck, Cool Sculpting does not require a lengthy recovery period.* Many Cool Sculpting clients schedule their procedure during their lunch break and then go back to work afterwards. Feel free to go about your normal activities and even exercise immediately after your treatment.
Over the next three months, you will see a gradual reduction of fat in the treatment area. Your body will slowly break down the fat and get rid of it through natural healing processes. During this time, you will experience no discomfort at all, only the pleasure of seeing your figure reduce in size.
Serious side effects are rare. However, following your fat freezing treatment you may experience symptoms associated with an immune response. This occurs as the body works to collect and process the frozen fat cells out of the body. These minor side effects include mild redness, bruising, tenderness and/or swelling. They are isolated to the treatment area and resolve themselves within several days.
While results may vary, typically after a Cool Sculpting treatment the body begins the process of gradually reducing the dead fat cells. Most patients see optimal CoolSculpting results within 2 to 4 months following their treatment.
CoolSculpting destroys the targeted fat cells delivering long-lasting results. Once the dead cells are metabolized, they are gone and cannot grow back. A CoolSculpting treatment does not mean that you will never gain weight in the treated area again, so a healthy lifestyle is essential.
