How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is often referred to as the best Santa Monica “fat freezing” procedure, it is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve anesthesia, cuts, or medical instruments entering the body. It reduces fat in areas of the body that are more challenging to remove through exercise and diet.
CoolSculpting has fewer risks than other fat reduction methods such as liposuction.
The freezing temperatures break down fat cells with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. Fat cells are affected by cold temperatures while other cells are not. Coolsculpting is often referred to as the “fat freezing” procedure. It works by destroying stubborn fat cells and allowing your immune system to eliminate these cells over time.

Expectations before procedure
First, the expert team at Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa evaluates your body shape and discusses your aesthetic goals during an initial consultation.
Assuming you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, they will work with you to create a unique treatment plan.
The length of a session depends on the area being treated, but most CoolSculpting Santa Monica treatments last 45 minutes. Though it isn’t painful, you may experience a prickly sensation as the applicator cools the treatment area through a skin protecting gel pad. This sensation often fades within 5-10 minutes. Once the area is numb due to the controlled cooling.
Expectations after procedure
You can expect to return to work, the gym and normal activities immediately after treatment. You can expect results within 4 weeks, however, real results will take around 3 months. Read more about CoolSculpting side effects.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
CoolSculpting can treat a variety of areas and the area you treat correlates to the cost of treatment. These are some of the common CoolSculpting areas:
- Love handles
- Upper and lower back
- Bra fat
- Male breast tissue
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
The typical cost for CoolSculpting ranges from $2,000 to $4,000. However, there are smaller areas of the body, like the chin and jaw, that are less than $1,000. The price for these services ranges between $700 and $900.
There is no one size fits all answer to how much CoolSculpting costs because the price depends on several factors. For example, a higher number of treatments or a larger area will be more expensive to treat. Areas with more fat require more treatments and, therefore, are more expensive.
The cost of treatment will also depend on the CoolSculpting applicator used by our doctor. CoolSculpting applicators come in different sizes and each is designed to target a specific area of the body. Insurance won’t cover the cost of this treatment because CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure that doesn’t treat any underlying health condition.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?
The best CoolSculpting procedure can last for years depending on the individual. This process destroys fat cells which will not return. However, destroying fat cells that exist won’t prevent new ones from appearing.
To preserve the results of CoolSculpting, you’ll need to work on living a healthy lifestyle. Without diet and exercise, you’ll see fat build up again eventually.
A CoolSculpting session lasts around 30 minutes to an hour and you’ll see results within 4-6 months.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
When looking up “CoolSculpting near me”, you’ll find a lot of information about side effects and possible complications. This should not scare you away as the rate of complications is lower than invasive procedures.
Side effects and complications aren’t severe and might include any of the following:
- Localized pain
The most common major complication that occurred in a few patients was less sensation in the treated area. Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) can occur in a small percentage of cases. PAH is a condition that makes the fat grow larger than before treatment instead of destroying fat cells.
PAH is rare and there are treatment options for it. PAH is most common in older patients and on certain people with characteristics that predispose them to the condition. Characteristics often include being male and having increased levels of testosterone.
Before opting for a CoolSculpting procedure, find out if you are a good candidate for the process.
