Coolsculpting


    Everyone is born with a propensity to carry fat in certain areas. It’s just genetics. For some, excess fat may accumulate in the stomach while for others it may settle on the outer thighs. The frustrating thing is that, oftentimes, no matter how much you exercise or how careful you are about your diet, this fat will not budge. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that can help you shed these stubborn pockets of fat. It’s safe, fast, and affordable. But best of all, the results are pretty amazing. Within just one treatment, you will start to see a sleeker and more toned looking you.

    Are You a Candidate for a CoolSculpting® Procedure?

    Dr. Nazarian believes strongly in the importance of being honest with her patients about what the procedure can and cannot achieve. She has seen amazing results with CoolSculpting® fat reduction treatment. But the key to success with any body contouring procedure is matching the right procedure with the right patient. So, if you are someone who looks in the mirror and is bothered by a bulging area or two that simply won’t go away no matter how much kale you eat then you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting®. It’s ideal for both men and women who are:  
    • relatively fit
    • within about 20 lbs. of your goal weight
    • have fatty areas that can be pinched
      The latter is important as there are two different kinds of fat in the body: visceral fat and subcutaneous fat. The former is the kind that may make your belly stick out, but which you cannot actually pinch. The latter is “pinchable” fat. CoolSculpting® only works on subcutaneous fat.

    What is CoolSculpting®?

    CoolSculpting® is non-invasive fat removal through cryolipolysis. It works by literally chilling the fat cells in the targeted area.  The cells eventually die and are eliminated through your body’s lymphatic system. Cryolipolysis was discovered by two scientists at Harvard who were studying something completely unrelated that involved the use of popsicles to relieve the pain in teething children. They noticed that the popsicles created dimples inside the children’s cheeks where the fat cells dissolved. Being smart, they realized that they were on to something big.

    CoolSculpting® Procedure

    Performed as an out-patient procedure in our office, the CoolSculpting® procedure is simple. A set of panels are attached to your treatment area. There are different sized panels for different areas of your body. The panels work a bit like a vacuum, sucking the fat up between them. This is why the fat must be “pinchable”. The panels then cool the fat to the point where 10-20% of the fat cells are destroyed. The procedure is not painful. In fact, some patients even take a nap.    CoolSculpting® takes about 35 minutes per area with the new applicators. But at Nazarian Plastic Surgery, we value your time as much as you do. This is why we offer our patients the option of DualSculpting. This is where both of our CoolSculpting® machines are used at once. This allows us to treat your two legs, for example, at the same time. In short, it gives you the same effective treatment, but in half the time.

    • Kayo - Daily Remodeling Serum

      This multi-functional hydrating serum is instilled with Hyaluronic Acid and Copper Peptides to help enhance the appearance of skin. Skin is saturated with long-lasting deep hydration from Hyaluronic Acid and Kayo’s Omega Oil Blend, while skin is further layered with Kayo’s antioxidant rich Superfruit Blend, leaving skin energized and radiant. Founder's Notes: This body product was modeled after true high impact face serums, with the quintessential lighter feel and texture of a serum, perfect for layering based on your unique skin type and needs. Moisture is primarily delivered through Hyaluronic Acid (think deep water hydration) rather than topical oil hydration. This product can be used by itself for normal to oily skin, but is recommended under other Kayo products, such as The Body Beautiful Crème or Kayo's Cellular Repair Evening Oil for skin that needs deeper oil based hydration. When layering Kayo's body products use the same technique you would with face products - lighter products like serums first, heavier products like lotions and oils after.

    Frequently
    Asked Questions

    IS COOLSCULPTING AVAILABLE FOR ALL AREAS OF THE BODY?

    The CoolSculpting treatment is currently FDA-approved for nine areas of the body. This treatment is currently not available for all areas of the body. The patient should consult with the treatment provider to build a personalized plan to ensure they get the results that they want.

    WHAT HAPPENS TO FROZEN FAT CELLS?

    The CoolSculpting procedure freezes fat cells to remove stubborn fat. Fat cells do not respond well to the cold. When fat cells freeze, they die and are gradually removed from the body. This process happens naturally.

    HOW LONG DOES EACH TREATMENT TAKE?

    The length of time a CoolSculpting treatment takes may differ. This depends both on the desired area of treatment and the size of that area. Treatments can be completed in as little as 35 minutes but may take up to three hours.

    HOW MANY SESSIONS DOES IT TAKE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

    The number of sessions recommended will be different for each patient. This figure is dependent on the patient’s needs and desired look. A single treatment can reduce stubborn fat by up to 25%. The provider will be able to help estimate the number of sessions the patient will need during the initial consultation.

    WHEN WILL RESULTS BE SEEN?

    Results are not immediate and may take at least three weeks to be seen. Changes are typically visible one to three months after treatment. Full results may take six months or more. Each individual will see results differently. Some patients will be able to see results faster than others.

    CAN WEIGHT BE GAINED AFTER GETTING A COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT?

    Yes, it is possible to gain weight after a CoolSculpting treatment. This procedure is not a weight-loss treatment. Instead, it is used to eliminate stubborn fat that has not responded to a healthy diet and exercise. If patients do not keep up healthy habits, it is possible for them to gain weight. Weight gain will be even and will not occur only in the areas of treatment.

    IS THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE COVERED BY INSURANCE?

    CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure that is not covered by insurance typically. Patients must check directly with their insurance providers to assess if the procedure is covered under their plan’s benefits. Many provider offices offer payment plans to help patients gradually pay off the cost of the procedure over time, instead of making them pay in full at the time of the procedure. Discuss payment options with your provider during your consultation to find the treatment method that is best for you.
