Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting-Logo-DarkBlue

Sit back…relax…and say goodbye to stubborn fat with Coolsculpting® at our Advanced Clinical Spa by El Paso Cosmetic Surgery.

Coolsculpting is FDA-cleared, safe, and effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate suborn fat. Coolsculpting is also the #1 Body Sculpting procedure.*

Fat Reduction Process

Coolsculpting technology safely delivers a dose of controlled cooling to gently and effectively target 20-25% of the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized, or frozen and fat cells die. Over time, your body naturally possesses the fat and eliminates these dead cells from your body, leaving a more sculpted you. The best part is that there’s no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Over time, your body naturally possesses the fat and eliminates these dead cells from your body, leaving a more sculpted you.

Coolsculpting is intended for Fat Reduction not Weight Loss.

Coolsculpting results are long lasting. Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates within the first 5-10 minutes. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment.

Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately ater Coolsculpting.

Yes.  Coolsculpting procedure was cleared by the FDA to treat visible fat bulges in abdomen, flanks, thighs, bra fat area, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and submental area (double chin).  With millions of treatments done worldwide, it is proven to be safe and effective.

  • Want to treat cellulite. Please see Cellfina information.
  • If you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria
It is important to understand that each individual treatment will eliminate up to 25% of the unwanted fat. Multiple treatments may be required depending on each person expectation.

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

It’s important to understand the difference between weight loss and fat reduction prior to answering this question.  Coolsculpting is intended for Fat Reduction not Weight Loss.  What’s the difference you may be thinking?

Losing weight makes fat cells smaller and does not eliminate fat cells.  We are born with a fixed number of fat cells in our body.  When losing or gaining weight, it does not increase the number of fat cells; rather the size of the fat cells.  So, generally speaking, when you gain weight, the cell gets bigger and when you lose weight, they shrink.

When getting treated by Coolsculpting, you reduce the number of fat cells up to 25%.  Thus, less number of fat cells in the treated area (approximately up to 25% less).  You are more likely to see inches come off rather than weight loss.

However, if you do end up gaining the weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just the treated areas.  The remaining fat cells in the treated area may inflate or increase in size giving an illusion of weight gain.

Many people feel motivated to maintain or even lose more inches or weight after a Coolsculpting procedures to see the best results.

No.  However, living a healthy lifestyle is always recommended to maintain or obtain the best results.  We do recommend a Weight Loss Program by Vitamedica that will help you shed those extra few pounds and/or inches. Please ask for more information regarding this product.  Can be purchased at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery.
Because Coolsculpting is so personalized, it is hard to give pricing.  The type and number of applicators and treatments can increase pricing.  The starting price for treatment is $750 and up.
