Coolsculpting®: Nonsurgical fat reduction available in Bend, OR

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 in the Bend, OR area have the option of noninvasive, nonsurgical targeted fat reduction with CoolSculpting® at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center.

The CoolSculpting® concept

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. 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.

EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center has an extensive array of CoolSculpting® equipment, with applicators to treat most areas of the body.

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

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 patients describe 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 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.

How much does CoolSculpting® cost

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.
  • Size of areas to be treated – The chin or inner thigh generally costs more to treat than abdominal areas or flanks (love handles).
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.
