CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared fat-freezing treatment for removing deposits of unwanted fat cells from nine different areas of the body. This procedure is a proven way to dispose of 20 to 25 percent of treated fat cells permanently with each session.
CoolSculpting is scientifically proven and effective for fat removal: it’s estimated that more than 7 million procedures have been performed since its inception in 2005. There are more than 5000 CoolSculpting providers in the United States. However, less than two percent of them are recognized by Allergan as certified CoolSculpting specialists. Your Laser Skin Care’s entire medical CoolSculpting staff are certified and have completed over 50 hours of training. Combined, we have over 15 years of experience and are committed to the highest health and safety standards for every patient.
Fundamentally, CoolSculpting works by a process called Cryolipolysis, which is what happens when fat cells are subjected to rapid cooling using a specialized applicator pad. CoolSculpting’s cooling pad is applied to the skin and cools fat cells to a precisely controlled temperature. After several treatments, the cooling process will trigger fat cells to die, and over a 90 day period, the body will naturally eliminate the unwanted fat cells. Most patients will see 25% to 50% fat reduction in the areas treated with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that is meant to eliminate troublesome areas of unwanted fat. It’s not intended, however, to be used as a means to lose weight. Patients will notice the best results when they are at or near their ideal weight and are seeking a sleeker and more toned figure.

Nine areas of the body can be contoured and slimmed down using CoolSculpting:
Whether because of age or genetics, fat cells in the face can be challenging to control with diet and exercise. Using CoolSculpting to target fat deposits in the facial area can dramatically improve one’s appearance and enhance natural youthfulness. Additionally, after several CoolSculpting treatments targeting fat along the jawline or submandibular area, patients see noticeable results as their faces become more sleek, defined, and sculpted. Facial contouring is one of the most common reasons to have CoolSculpting treatments. After CoolSculpting, patients see dramatic results that are non-surgical, non-invasive, and can improve the appearance of a sagging jawline.
Another popular facial contouring CoolSculpting procedure is reducing fat cells in the submental or double chin area. Unwanted accumulations of fat deposits are common in people over 40, particularly below the chin. Fat in the submental area can make someone appear overweight by causing undesirable fullness in the face. Reducing large fat cells under the chin can give patients a renewed confidence in their appearance. CoolSculpting was designed to treat facial areas that can be challenging to tone with exercise or weight loss.
For members of both genders, the adult upper body starts to change with age. Some of these changes include fat bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is an excellent option for reducing upper body fat in and around the arms, upper back, and bra bulge area. By freezing and eliminating stubborn fat deposits, this procedure smooths and tones the upper body. When patients combine CoolSculpting with diet and exercise, the results can be transformational. Patients often notice their upper body becoming more slim, toned, and sleek. In Los Angeles, CoolSculpting is trusted by actors, professional athletes, models, and public-facing individuals to eliminate stubborn fat bulges around the stomach, chest, and back.
After several treatments, most patients notice a difference in their upper body appearance. When excess fat is eliminated from the arms, stomach, and back, patients can go back to wearing form-fitting clothing. Since CoolSculpting freezes and eliminates fat cells, patients can expect a drastic improvement in embarrassing bulges and stubborn body fat in the back, around the waist, and around the bra line. CoolSculpting is proven to give individuals a leaner silhouette and a firmer, tighter look where it matters most.
Millions of Americans also battle stubborn fat deposits in their lower body, an area that CoolSculpting can also successfully treat. CoolSculpting is clinically proven to sculpt thighs, buttocks, and even knees.
Resistant fat cells in the thighs sometimes don’t respond to a lean diet and regular exercise. If hours of legwork and squats at the gym have not given you the lower body appearance you want, CoolSculpting treatments can be the solution for quick, permanent, and visible results.
With CoolSculpting, your nurse will freeze unwanted fat and cellulite around the buttocks, providing you with a permanent way to firm and smooth your buttocks area without invasive surgery or extended recovery time. By freezing and eliminating the fat underneath the buttocks, you will see an even surface that looks and feels smooth.
CoolSculpting can also be performed on your knees and ankles, sculpting your lower legs and giving you the physical appearance you have always wanted.
At Your Laser Skin Care, our team is dedicated to giving you the best results in the shortest amount of time. To do this, we have the latest CoolSculpting machines, that allow us to target multiple body parts in a single session. Targeting two areas at once shortens your time in our clinic and more importantly, accelerates achieving your desired body contouring results. “With dual CoolSculpting, our patients spend half the time at our office, allowing them to save valuable time and enjoy more of their day,” explains Dr. Ella Fedonenko M.D. of Your Laser Skin Care.
There are various methods to reduce fat in the human body. Dieting, exercise, fat freezing, liposuction, and bariatric surgery are some of the more common ways to control fat and achieve the desired look. Unfortunately, there is no panacea to weight loss and fat reduction; each approach has its pros and cons.
For obese patients, Liposuction or bariatric surgery may be the best solution. CoolSculpting doesn’t treat obesity and is best suited towards helping patients tone specific parts of their bodies. When comparing Liposuction surgery to CoolSculpting, it’s essential to remember that Liposuction is an invasive surgical body contouring procedure that carries with it several risks. It involves making at least one incision to suction fat tissue from the area being treated. Liposuction is considered a major surgery that requires rigorous pre and post-operative care, extended recovery time, and follow-up appointments.
If you are wondering whether or not to choose CoolSculpting over Liposuction, consult a medical professional at Your Laser Skin Care. If you have smaller pockets of unwanted fat or bulges, then CoolSculpting may be the right choice for you. Patients with more significant amounts of fat may benefit from more invasive cosmetic surgery.

Liposuction is an invasive cosmetic surgical procedure that may require months for your body to fully heal and recover. Liposuction carries a greater risk of adverse side effects that can have lifelong implications. Five percent of patients who undergo Liposuction experience some complications, and one out of every 5000 patients die from those complications during or after surgery.
Alternatively, the benefits of CoolSculpting include proven fat loss, zero downtime, virtually painless procedure experience, results within 4 to 12 weeks, and the ability to treat multiple areas of the body in one session.
CoolSculpting has shown increased effectiveness when compared to Liposuction for targeting specific fat cells. Since fat cells are destroyed during treatment, they are permanently gone. Within a general course of treatment, fat cells are reduced by up 25 to 50 percent.
The short answer is no! Although CoolSculpting has often been marketed towards women, men are excellent candidates for streamlining areas of unwanted fat. Your Laser Skin Care has treated many male patients using CoolSculpting at their Los Angeles Med Spa.
The “dad bod” isn’t a body goal of most men, which is why the popularity of CoolSculpting for men has increased over the last five years. One popular application for men is contouring the upper arm area that is resistant to building muscle at the gym.
Women also benefit from CoolSculpting with just the right curves in just the right spots. Targeting specific areas allows for a woman’s body to look toned and sculpted. In addition, CoolSculpting has become a popular treatment for women who have had C-sections because it removes resistant pockets of unwanted fat in the stomach area.
CoolSculpting also works for women who have had a vaginal birth after accumulating multiple extra areas of fat from their pregnancy. Get back to your pre-baby body in as little as two sessions with CoolSculpting performed by Your Laser Skin Care’s medical professionals.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure with little to no recovery time, so most healthy individuals are eligible for this treatment. The best way to know if CoolSculpting is the right fit for you is to ask yourself the following questions:
While being near your goal weight before your CoolSculpting appointment is ideal, it is by no means mandatory. Even if you have a few pounds between you and your goals, you may still be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Schedule a free consultation to learn more!
2. Are you looking to tone and tighten specific areas of your body?
Perhaps you have achieved your goal weight, but parts of your body aren’t as toned as you would like. CoolSculpting safely and effortlessly targets the areas you want, creating a toned and tight physique.
3. Are you generally healthy?
While CoolSculpting is a great way to tone your body, it is not a substitute for exercise and a healthy diet. Someone who is suffering from health issues because they are obese should first see a doctor and lose weight through a diet and exercise plan before using CoolSculpting.
4. Are you looking for a non-invasive treatment?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t take long to perform and has little to no side effects. Thanks to these virtues, this procedure is a great fit for busy people who can’t afford to slow down for recovery time and painful side effects.
5. Are you pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant soon?
CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA-approved procedure. However, no tests have been performed to see whether CoolSculpting is safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. For this reason, if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant soon, we cannot recommend CoolSculpting. Contact us to learn more!
Once you have made your CoolSculpting appointment with us at Your Laser Skin Care, your journey to a slim and contoured body starts. We don’t believe in high-pressure sales, and our primary goal is to give you the information to make an informed decision. Before your CoolSculpting session, we will offer you a complimentary consultation to assess your medical history and discuss the fat reduction goals you have for your body. Our team will work with you to create a treatment plan to help you achieve your ideal look.
Please wear comfortable clothing to your appointment. You may eat a snack or light meal beforehand, but limit beverages, as limited movement will be required during the treatment session. Feel free to take a nap, relax, or watch your favorite show on Netflix during your CoolSculpting, which is provided on Your Laser Skin Care’s OLED Television.
Once you arrive at Your Laser Skin Care’s med spa in Los Angeles for your appointment, you will be asked to change into a gown, and the technician will take photographs of the areas to be treated. The technician will mark the sites and confirm your treatment plan. Then, the actual CoolSculpting treatment will begin.
Your dedicated nurse will place a gel pad and applicators on one spot at a time. Although it’s rare, some patients may experience mild discomfort initially, as the tissue is drawn into the applicator and the cooling treatment begins. CoolSculpting can take up to 60 minutes per area.
If you are getting our Dual CoolSculpting experience, the technician will mark up two areas, and then the process will be the same in both areas. This way, you can save time by targeting multiple areas in one session.
Afterward, your technician will massage the treated areas. The massage helps destroy the fat cells (up to 68% more).
It’s common for the area to ache for a short time or be a little sore while the treated area warms back up again to your normal body temperature.
Even though there is little to no downtime after a CoolSculpting session, it’s still essential to follow all the instructions and after-care advice given to you by our medical team. Please wear comfortable clothing that doesn’t restrict movement since it’s essential to keep active following the treatment. Following these directions will help reduce inflammation and minor soreness. Some patients may experience mild redness on the surface of their skin that will subside within 24 to 48 hours. It’s important to stay hydrated after treatment, to facilitate your body’s elimination of the fat cells.
We invite you to make your complimentary consultation appointment with the staff at Your Laser Skin Care today. Our technicians will help you achieve the dream body you have always wanted through CoolSculpting. Contact us today to get started.
