So how exactly does CoolSculpting work? During CoolSculpting treatment, your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center certified CoolSculpting Specialist applies a cooling applicator to the fatty area. The innovative device sends the coldness safely through your skin into your fat cells, which slowly freeze.
The cooled fat cells initiate the process of solidifying the fat cells without destroying the surrounding tissue, which results in the cells shrinking. This destroys the fat cells. Your body takes note of the dead cells and starts the process of flushing them out naturally As the body disposes of the fat cells, the depth of the fat layer is reduced by up to 30% in the treated area. Once that process is complete, you get a more contoured area.
This can take anywhere from one to three months, resulting in a more proportionate body profile that can increase your overall satisfaction and restore your self-confidence. What’s more, the fat cells CoolSculpting destroys are permanently removed. You can enjoy your results for life provided you maintain a healthy eating plan and exercise. Our office offers two CoolSculpting machines, which allows our CoolSculpting Specialists to work on two areas at the same time, which cuts the procedure time in half allowing you to return to your life more quickly!
CoolSculpting is a comfortable treatment with no downtime. One session treating two areas takes only 35 minutes. You will not need any anesthesia or sedation during the procedure.
During the treatment, you can relax, take a nap, use your mobile device, or read a book. Afterward, you can drive yourself home if you want. You can continue to whatever’s next on your agenda right after your treatment, too. Schedule a consultation with our certified CoolSculpting Specialist at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center so we can recommend a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired level of fat loss.
Over the coming weeks, your body goes to work getting rid of the damaged fat cells, with your results becoming more and more visible over time. Most people see the reduction in fat cells in the treated area within 1-3 months, with optimal results at around six months. Some people achieve their body goal with one CoolSculpting treatment, but you may opt for multiple treatments for more dramatic body contouring results.

If you find you have areas of stubborn fat deposits despite diet and exercise, you may become depressed and unhappy, with a loss of self-confidence. CoolSculpting can provide the best solution for you if you would like a non-surgical procedure with little recovery time.
While some patients do experience mild discomfort during the procedure, most describe the procedure as slightly uncomfortable. This is because there is a two-minute massage to the treated area immediately after the device is removed that can cause discomfort. The two-minute massage is required to start to stimulate the treated area to begin disposing of the fat cells.
In addition, during the actual procedure, the cooling sensations from the freezer applicator on the CoolSculpting device will cause numbness to the area being treated, which can also produce small levels of pain. There may also be some slight pinching and/or pulling sensations as your fat cells are frozen and then extracted. This will occur about five to ten minutes out of the 35 minute treatment time.
Once your procedure is complete, there may be some swelling, itching, and mild pain. The treated area is likely to feel the most discomfort, though this can vary from patient to patient.
No. This is a non-surgical procedure, so there are no incisions. You may have some slight bruising and swelling, but these symptoms are normal and will fade within a few days.
According to WebMD.com, cryolipolysis - the freezing of fat cells via CoolSculpting - is both effective and safe with few risks. There are only mild side effects that will fade over time.
During your consultation with our certified CoolSculpting Specialist, you will discuss the areas of opportunity that you are interested in eliminating excess fat. Our CoolSculpting Specialist will assess those areas and provide you with a treatment plan that will include the number of cycles you will need to reach your goals. Depending on the amount of fat in the areas, you may need anywhere from two cycles up to 30 cycles. The average number of cycles for full treatment is 4 to 6. Additional treatments can be scheduled one month apart.
Results should start to visibly appear within four weeks, but the most dramatic changes can occur up to eight weeks after your procedure. CoolSculpting is meant to freeze away the fat cells and your body eliminates them naturally for permanent results as long as you maintain your weight. If you do gain weight, fat cells can return to the treated areas.
The price of our Temecula CoolSculpting treatments varies depending on how many cycles and which areas of your body you receive treatment, which differs for each patient at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center. If you would like a precise estimate, you will need to meet for a consultation with one of our certified CoolSculpting Specialists who can assess your individual needs.
Since CoolSculpting is an elective procedure, your insurance provider will likely not cover the costs. If you think you may need assistance with the full cost of treatment upfront, we partner with CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit, two different financing companies that offer financing options. Be sure to ask our CoolSculpting Specialist about these options during your consultation.
Yes. Our board-certified plastic surgeons and our certified CoolSculpting Specialist at Renuance are familiar with all kinds of cosmetic issues and can properly recommend a treatment plan for you. They are also comfortable with performing the CoolSculpting treatment themselves and can guide you into maintaining your procedure into long-lasting results.
