South Bay Med Spa offers Coolsculpting procedures in Torrance. The Coolsculpting procedures selectively reduce fat layers by using advanced cooling technology. In the procedure, a specialized applicator is applied to the skin of the area you target for this treatment. The applicator transmits cold temperature into the layer of the skin called the subcutaneous fat. According to research, the subcutaneous cells are very vulnerable to cold; they die off naturally on exposure to cold temperatures. This makes the Coolsculpting procedure very effective in killing the fat cells through gradual disintegration.

During the Coolsculpting procedure, the South Bay Med Spa practitioner vacuums the skin above the fatty tissue area. The skin is vacuumed into an applicator that cools the cells. The device holds the target area between two paddles. The cool temperatures numb the skin, and some patients feel a cooling sensation. The paddles cool, and the doctor leaves them in place for between 35 and 60 minutes, depending on the area a patient targets for fat reduction.

Additionally, the procedure may last up to 3 hours; the larger the target area, the more time spent on a session. When the doctor leaves the paddle in place, the procedure destroys about 25% of the fat cells. Over time, your immune system clears out the dead fat cells; the results may not show for a few months; however, some changes are visible within a few weeks.

During the Coolsculpting procedure;

  • The patient sits in a comfortable chair or lies down. An external applicator delivers cool, freezing temperatures to the treatment area.
  • The cold triggers a process that gradually eliminates stubborn fat, smoothening rolls, and bulges.
  • The practitioner uses a series of different shapes and sizes of applicators to sculpt each area so that the patient may feel a cooling sensation and pressure.
  • The procedures can be repeated safely in the same area; the space between one procedure and the other should be about three weeks.

Coolsculpting is not a weight reduction procedure. The treatment offers long-lasting results; once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot migrate or regrow. However, the patient needs to observe a healthy diet and regular exercise. South Bay Med Spa offers quality CoolSculpting procedures with new CoolSculpting technology that guarantees safe and long-term results.
