CoolSculpting Santa Barbara

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical alternative for fat reduction that can help to give your body a leaner and more toned look. This cutting-edge technology has shown significant long-lasting results for men and women with a localized area of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. And best of all, the treatments are relatively affordable and convenient. Now, for the first time ever, doctors can effectively remove fat without surgery and without even breaking the skin.

What CoolSculpting Does

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to deliver visible and lasting results in fat reduction without any need for incisions, anesthesia, or long recovery time.

The technology works by suctioning or pulling targeted tissue between two applicator paddles, where fat cells are cooled in a systematic and controlled manner to crystallize and freeze fat cells beneath the skin. The cooling plates reach a temperature cool enough to damage fat cells but not the overlying skin so surrounding tissue remains unharmed. The dead cells are metabolized back into your body over the next few weeks. The body processes them as it would any waste in the system, filtering them out naturally.

The treatment is quite comfortable, and patients can read, watch television or use their phones during the entire process. Typically, the treatment should last about an hour per treated area. This non-invasive process does not involve surgery of any kind, making it ideal for almost anyone in good health and near their ideal body weight.

Who Should Try CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a great way to help give your body the contoured shape you want. It isn’t a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and a good diet, but it can help you look better. The treatment is not intended for those looking to lose significant weight but rather is designed to sculpt and define the body’s contours. In short, it works best for people with an exercise regimen and a healthy diet but with one or two or more areas of localized fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise.

If you have certain areas where you have struggled to shed fat, or your exercise regimen just can’t seem to tone various spots, then this method could be just what you need. If you are averse to a surgical procedure like liposuction, you may find that CoolSculpt provides a safe and effective alternative to surgical methods.


After a session of CoolSculpting, some people see results as early as a month from the date of the procedure. Your body slowly reshapes over time, so you are likely to see the full results in a two to three months. By the sixth month after the treatment, you may experience noticeably smoother skin and a general toned appearance in the areas that have been treated.

Unlike a typical weight-loss program where you simply shrink your fat cells but can’t get rid of them completely, with CoolSculpting you actually target the root of the problem by eliminating the fat cells themselves.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting varies from person to person and depends on the number of sessions needed to help you achieve your desired results. Our team will analyze your body and develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs during your initial consultation.
