When Diet And Exercise Just Don’t Cut It

noninvasive, nonsurgical targeted fat reduction

Your tendency to develop fat, and where it collects on your body, are largely the product of genetics. Hereditary fat deposits can stubbornly resist healthy eating and regular exercise. In the past, liposuction, a more invasive fat removal procedure, was the only effective spot reduction technique. Today, men and women have the option of noninvasive, nonsurgical targeted fat reduction with CoolSculpting in Bend at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center.

The CoolSculpting Concept

crystallized fat cells are destroyed

Your body has a layer of subcutaneous fat, just beneath the skin. It helps to regulate body temperature and cushion internal organs. When calorie intake exceeds usage, the body stores the excess in fat cells in this layer.

At our office in Bend CoolSculpting selectively chills fat cells to a temperature that freezes lipids (the oily content), without harm to skin or other organs which are comprised primarily of water. As crystallized fat cells are destroyed, they are eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The basic system gently pulls fat into the device, treating larger areas such as:

  • Abdomen (muffin top)
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Back fat and bra fat
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Buttocks – including banana roll under cheeks
  • Distal thigh/knees
  • Chin

Additional Reading

The CoolMini applicator is ideal for submental fat. Treatment trims double chin, improving jawline contour and profile. The CoolAdvantage applicator has interchangeable contours and utilizes a gentle suction, allowing us to treat a wide variety of areas. With a larger cooling area and colder temperature, treatment time is reduced. For your convenience multiple areas can be treated at the same time, called DualSculpting, to reduce appointment time and visits.

What To Expect From Fat Freezing


All you do is relax for treatment – we provide a fluffy robe and comfortable slippers. A gel is applied. Then you feel a tugging sensation as the device gains hold (some applicators do not use suction), followed by an intense but brief feeling of cold. Some of our Bend CoolSculpting patients have described mild tingling, stinging, or aching, but it passes quickly as the area gets numb. Treatment time varies but can be as little as 35 minutes. When the applicator is removed, the skin may look pink or blanched and feel solid. Tissues are massaged with a radial pulse device to restore normal sensation and accelerate results. You may return to work or other activities right after your appointment

You will begin to notice a change in three weeks to three months, as treated fat is eliminated. Improvement continues for about six months. A single treatment session can result in an average fat reduction of 20 to 25 percent in the treated area. If further reduction is desired, additional sessions can be scheduled. The adult human body does not generate new fat cells unless you experience a large weight gain or pregnancy, so they are gone for good. If you gain weight in the future, remaining fat cells expand. That means extra pounds are distributed more evenly, rather than concentrated in troublesome spots.

What Happens To A Fat Cell After CoolSculpting?

Fat Cells

Fat Cells

Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight.

Fat Freezing Cross Section

When you have the CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells freeze and start to die off.

Frozen Fat Cells

During the process of cell death, fat cells begin to collapse.

Fat freezing

Over the months that follow your procedure, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.

We are the top CoolSculpting provider in Oregon, we are top 2 percent in North America. We know where what we are doing. Only 25 people in the USA and Canada are CoolSculpting masters and I’m one of them. Well, congratulations. Hi Cri, welcome. Hi, thank you for having me here, yeah, so let’s start. Why don’t you tell me who you are and where you work and what you do? Start there. I am Cri I’m a master cool sculptor at EsthetixMD. Well, I want to pick your brain then about some questions that we get asked a lot about CoolSculpting. So, tell me what is CoolSculpting? Let’s start there. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat removal treatment and it’s chemically removing those fat cells. It freezes them to a point that they can survive, and then the body flushes them out. You have very minimal downtime with it cryolipolysis, freezing your fat. CoolSculpting is FDA approved to do chin fat, bra fat basically anywhere that we can pinch. Abs, flanks inner thighs, outer thighs and knees and arms as well. It works, it’s all based on science. They have over 100 scientific studies proving that CoolSculpting works. A good candidate can be men or woman all ages all sizes, but it’s someone who has a stubborn fat pocket, someone who is healthy, who exercises often, who eats well and just needs to get rid of that stubborn pocket of fat anywhere in the body that we can pinch. I truly believe in CoolSculpting I it’s a great treatment that has changed many people’s lives. Who would not be, be, a good candidate for CoolSculpting? A person who doesn’t have healthy eating habits and exercise habits is not a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Someone who wants to lose a lot of weight is not a good candidate because this is not a, a, weight loss treatment. And you said that CoolSculpting is non-invasive. So, what can I expect afterwards? Will I be in pain? Is there downtime? Immediately afterwards, you can return to your normal activities. There are there is no downtime to it? It’s a. It’s a safe procedure and it’s very you can come in during your lunch time if you want to you can come in after work and then go home to your family. There is no downtime to it. Another question, we get asked a lot is what can I expect from CoolSculpting before and after? There is not much preparation during CoolSculpting before usually come in and get an assessment. The assessment I say it’s one of the most important parts of the treatment. During the assessment we look at the areas we talk about, your expectations, your goals, and then we move on during the day of the treatment, we take pictures so we can establish a good base for before and after pictures and we mark you and really go through what your needs are. Oh, that’s awesome. Now, what are some of the side effects of CoolSculpting? The most common side effects are numbing numbness to the treated area some bruising and soreness on the treated area most of the time. Most of the patients treated do not feel affected by this soreness, as it’s mainly to the touch. And how often do those side effects last? Typically, if they do experience them? Anywhere from a couple days post treatment two a month, the numbness and the soreness gradually goes, down at that month. What should someone look for if they’re searching for a CoolSculpting provider? EsthetixMD is the premier medical spa in central Oregon. We have dedicated rooms just for CoolSculpting. We are able to do dual sculpting, meaning two machines at same time or triple sculpting three machines at the same time three times as faster as just having one machine. We are the top CoolSculpting provider in Oregon. We are top 2% in North America. We know where what we’re doing. They should look for someone who has experience who is certified, who has gone through training like CSU. CoolSculpting university and who have done quite a bit quite a few treatments. We have done over 7000 treatments at this point; we truly know what we are doing. My last question is what are typical CoolSculpting results? Typical CoolSculpting results are we are eliminating 20 to 25% of the fat cells. When you lose weight, those fat cells shrink. When you gain weight, the enlarged. With CoolSculpting, we’re actually killing those fat cells in your body generally doesn’t make new fat cells. So 22, 25 percent reduction is what we expect. They are amazed. They’re happy they are those pants there weren’t finning anymore they now fit, or they’re swimming suit that they wouldn’t put on. They can now put it on or brides can fit on their wedding dresses. Men are often happy to have their jawline back again after not seeing it for a while.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost

a valid and important consideration

We appreciate that the cost of CoolSculpting treatment is a valid and important consideration. Since treatment is so customized to your unique features and goals, CoolSculpting costs can vary considerably from person to person.

In fact, the company behind CoolSculpting, Allergan Aesthetics, reports that treatment ranges from $2,000 to $4,000. Generally, they note that costs depend on the areas to be treated, the number of areas that require treatment, and the total sessions that are needed to get desired results. We provide more detail into each of these factors below. In consultation with you, we will discuss those factors that can influence your treatment plan and, in turn, your expenses. These factors include:

  • Number of areas to be treated – The more areas that are treated, the greater the cost. Be aware that each arm or each leg counts as a single body part or treatment site. Ask about potential discounts to treat multiple sites.
  • Treatment sessions – You can see noticeable improvements and fat reduction after a single treatment; however, additional treatments may be needed to reach your goals. Additional sessions add to the overall cost of treatment.
  • Size of areas to be treated – The chin or inner thigh generally costs more to treat than abdominal areas or flanks (love handles).
  • Applicators – We at EsthetixMD have many different applicators to choose from, to further personalize your treatment. For instance, CoolAdvantage and DualSculpting treat larger areas with cooler temperatures and treat two sites at one time for faster treatment and fewer sessions.

Cost concerns should never stand in the way of your getting or restoring that confident, youthful, vibrant, and healthy appearance. So, we offer many ways to trim the CoolSculpting bill while whittling contours, including:

  • Regular specials on aesthetic products and procedures
  • Rewards points with repeat visits that add up to savings
  • Free 3-D BodyScan
  • CareCredit, or GreenSky zero percent finance plans (for qualifying borrowers)

CoolSculpting is a great value. You achieve lasting results, trimming stubborn fat, without the risks and downtime. Contact EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center today at 541-508-7907 to schedule your Bend CoolSculpting consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

CoolSculpting is an ideal treatment option for generally healthy men and women with hard-to-lose pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting patients should have a BMI lower than 34 and be at or near their target weight before treatment. Patients who should not receive CoolSculpting include those with chronic pain, a history of hernia in the treatment area, chronic pain, a history of eating disorders, health conditions affecting the lymphatic system, or certain autoimmune disorders. Patients who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant should not receive CoolSculpting.

EsthetixMD will provide a disposable garment for you to wear during your treatment, but you should bring soft, comfortable clothing to wear after your treatment. A gel substance used during treatment may stain undergarments. You should eat a snack or light meal before arriving for treatment. We also advise patients to limit caffeine and beverage consumption before their appointment.

The best way to get the most from your CoolSculpting results is to maintain a stable weight through a healthy lifestyle. Processed foods and excessive salt intake can cause weight gain and increase stored fat in problem areas. Moderate daily exercise, healthy eating, and increased water intake can keep you looking slim and sculpted indefinitely.

CoolSculpting is noninvasive and poses minimal risk. However, there are some risks and side effects of which patients should be aware. You are likely to experience a tugging or pulling sensation as targeted fat is drawn between the cooling panels for cryolyposlis. Immediately after treatment, some patients report aching, stinging, or pain in treated areas. You may also notice redness, bruising, swelling, and sensitivity in the treatment area. Cold exposure is likely responsible for these side effects. These conditions typically last about two weeks. A rare but serious risk associated with CoolSculpting is paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, which involves enlarging cells within the treatment area. While this concern is entirely cosmetic, this condition will not resolve without intervention and requires surgical correction.

CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that gently and effectively reduces fat in problem areas of the body through a patented cooling technique. The result over two to four months is a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat.

The CoolSculpting technique, developed by Harvard scientists, works by targeting fat cells underneath the skin and freezing them to the point of crystallization. During this patented Cryolipolysis™ procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to targeted fat cells in specific areas of your body. Because fat cells are more vulnerable to cooling than surrounding tissues, this kills the fat cells without harming the skin, nerves, muscles and other tissue.

The treated fat cells undergo apoptosis (programmed cell death) and are eliminated naturally, gradually reducing the thickness of the fat layer. The result is decreased fat bulges, visible in most patients within two months. Skin is left unblemished and there is no scarring, in contrast to traditional methods of fat removal. There is no lengthy recovery period.

Clinical studies involving hundreds of patients (in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia) show that CoolSculpting is an effective way to reduce fat without the pain, risk, and recovery time of surgical procedures. The result is noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas.

Yes, CoolSculpting is FDA-approved in the U.S. for non-invasive fat reduction in the flank.

The cost varies based on the number of sessions in your individual treatment plan.

CoolSculpting has been available since 2009 in Canada, Europe and Asia, marketed in some regions as the ZELTIQ™ Procedure. Clinical studies on the process date from 2006. There have been more than one million treatments with the device worldwide.

CoolSculpting is safe, and well tolerated by most patients. Typically, you’ll be comfortable enough to read, watch television, work on your laptop, listen to music, or just relax during the procedure. Occasionally, some patients experience redness, tingling, bruising or numbness in the treated areas, but these are temporary.

In approximately 50 reported cases out of 115,000 treatments, patients experienced more severe pain during and/or after treatment. If your discomfort is severe, contact your Esthetix clinician immediately. You may be prescribed an oral medication or topical anesthetic to help ease the symptoms until they go away naturally. Rest assured, in 100 percent of cases, such pain has naturally subsided with no long-term effects.

CoolSculpting is safe, and well tolerated by most patients. Typically, you’ll be comfortable enough to read, watch television, work on your laptop, listen to music, or just relax during the procedure. Occasionally, some patients experience redness, tingling, bruising or numbness in the treated areas, but these are temporary. In all CoolSculpting cases, patients will experience an undeniable reduction in fat in the area treated. However, visible results can vary based on your initial fat deposits.

An ice pack does not reach temperatures cold enough to effectively kill fat cells. Moreover, the tool used in the cooling technology does not affect surrounding tissues, which can be damaged by prolonged icing.

One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting is its convenience. Each treatment lasts one to two hours or more, depending on the size of the area to be treated. You’ll know in advance how much time to allot for your visit, following an initial consultation. Most likely, you’ll be positioned comfortably enough to read, work, or watch your favorite show. And because it’s non-invasive, there’s no downtime after your appointment.

Fat cells are reduced with every treatment. Because every patient is different, we recommend a follow-up visit with your clinician post-procedure, to assess the cosmetic improvement and determine if additional CoolSculpting is warranted, to achieve more fat reduction.

The fats that are released from cells as a result of the treatment are processed by the liver, an organ in the body designed to perform that function. The dead fat cells themselves are broken down and digested by immune cells in the body.

No recovery time is required. You may resume normal activities the same day, including work and exercise. While uncommon, a small percentage of patients may experience pain related to treatment. Pain subsides over time.

CoolSculpting is very selective in killing fat cells without affecting other structures. Clinical studies indicate that the procedure does not cause nerve damage or permanent numbness. A small number of patients may experience temporary symptoms including skin sensitivity, stinging and/or pain.

Fat cells killed from CoolSculpting are eliminated from the body, and fat will never deposit again in the treated area. There is no risk of fat from other areas moving over to the treated area to compensate.

In clinical research, CoolSculpting was not noted to cause any change in skin tone or color, nor any rippling or dimpling.

It varies, depending on your specific goals. Some patients find the results they are after following one procedure. If more than one session is scheduled to ensure the best outcome, you’ll typically wait four to eight weeks between treatments. Your Esthetix clinician will discuss this as part of your treatment plan.

Cellulite is comprised of several types of tissue including fat. Since CoolSculpting selectively treats fat, the procedure does not do a thorough job treating cellulite, although some patients report temporary reductions in cellulite appearance immediately after the procedure.

The results of CoolSculpting are not as rapid or dramatic as invasive procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck. It’s an effective alternative for those who want to avoid the higher cost, pain, risk and recovery time associated with such surgical procedures.
