CoolSculpting in Irvine, Orange County, CA
CoolSculpting is an innovative procedure for fat reduction from specific areas on the body. The process is based on Cryolipolysis™- the destruction of fat cells through prolonged controlled super cooling. This is an FDA approved non-invasive treatment designed to improve body contours and has been successfully used for reducing specific fat-prone areas of the body. And no downtime!

NEW! CoolMini – for unwanted fat under the chin. Just like the tried and proven applicators for the body, the CoolMini can target small areas – including that double chin!
As with CoolSculpting for the body, CoolMini targets unwanted fat with its own small contoured applicator. Expect 2 sessions to get the best outcomes. CoolMini is ideal for patients who are afraid of surgery or needles.
CoolSculpting for any treatable area offers a simple option for liposuction or other “fat reducing” systems that can often be painful.

Attacking the Bulge
People who are physically fit and at a stable weight may still have bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat – no matter how much they exercise or diet. Losing abdominal fat and back fat through diet and exercise is very difficult for many.
A “muffin top”, post-pregnancy pooch, love handles, back fat—not much, but just enough to show through a snug-fitting t-shirt or blouse – can all be disconcerting and frustrating. These small areas of fat typically don’t warrant a surgical procedure such as liposuction. See some of our patients’ results.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq: A “Cool” Solution
These problem areas can now be addressed with the Zeltiq procedure. CoolSculpting utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target, cool, and destroy a percentage of your fat cells without damage to other tissue.
After a treatment and over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from the body.

Costs vary across the country but the CoolSculpting makers, Zeltiq, set pricing discount limits. Typically a single lovehandle size session that requires the small/medium applicator is $750. The larger applicator which typically covers an entire abdomen area is $1500. BUT, with package pricing these costs can be dramatically reduced. For examples, see our TREATMENT to TRANSFORMATION sample pricing configurations. Often there are discounts to keep pace with the competitive community as well.
During the CoolSculpting procedure, the selected area is drawn up between two cooling plates and held in place by suction. Over about an hour’s time, the skin between the plates is super-cooled to just above freezing. Because the fat cells are more sensitive to cold, the precise temperature maintenance during the procedure begins to disrupt fat cells while not damaging other layers of the skin. The near-freezing action is what causes the fat cells to begin a breakdown process called apoptosis.
Once the fat cell breakdown begins, it continues slowly over a number of months while the body “digests” the broken down fat cells, prompting a firmer, tighter contour and reducing the size of the fat bulge or fat pocket.
Plan on seeing your final results in 3 to 4 months. Remember the fat breakdown and elimination works on the body’s natural time clock.
CoolSculpting is effective for those with a normal weight profile who wish to reduce specific discrete fat bulges that have been resistant to weight loss or exercise. It is not an effective treatment for those who are grossly overweight, have excessively large fat deposits or for those with significant large area fat pads. You CAN repeat treatments and have adjacent treatments through what’s called Treatment to Transformation.
Potential CoolSculpting candidates are invited to call for a complimentary consultation to determine if CoolSculpting is an appropriate treatment.
Initial sensations are a strong suction and then cold. After about 10 minutes the area becomes numb for the rest of the treatment session. You may feel some discomfort as the area warms back up and during the post treatment massage. It’s possible you may also have some temporary bruising, tenderness, numbness or cramping.
The CoolSculpting device is FDA-approved in the U.S. for fat reduction for the abdomen, flanks and thighs, chin and small areas.
The science behind the CoolSculpting Procedure, called Cryolipolysis,™ was developed by two world-renowned dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
Cryolipolysis technology was co-invented by Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. R. Rox Anderson, Wellman Center for Photomedicine, affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
Well over 2 million treatments have been performed. CoolSculpting is the #1 most popular non-surgical fat reduction procedure in the world!
