CoolSculpting® Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a versatile body contouring treatment that freezes fat cells to the point they can no longer function properly. In the months following your CoolSculpting procedures, your body gradually eliminates the damaged fat cells through the lymphatic system. In turn, the areas you targeted during your treatment diminish in size. 

Self Care LA offers CoolSculpting services for athletes who want to streamline their physiques, as well as to men and women who simply want to reduce body fat for aesthetic reasons. No matter your fitness level, CoolSculpting can effectively remove fat cells that don’t seem to go away despite your best exercise and dieting efforts. 

During a consultation, Dr. Kothakota goes over your medical history to be sure your body will respond well to the treatments. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure and should not be treated as such: You should consider it only if you’re comfortable at your current weight or nearing your weight loss goals. 

Which areas can I target with CoolSculpting?

Coolsculpting is unique because of its ability to treat so many areas of your body. You don’t have to limit it to just one or two: You can treat many areas within a customized treatment plan at Self Care LA.

Dr. Kothakota routinely treats these areas with CoolSculpting:

  • Arms
  • Banana roll
  • Bra fat
  • Calves
  • Chin and neck
  • Knees
  • Love handles (flanks)
  • Male chest
  • Stomach 
  • Thighs

Your fat distribution may be completely different from another person’s, even if they have a similar body structure, which is why customizing treatments like CoolSculpting is essential to get to your ideal results. 

How can I make my CoolSculpting results last?

CoolSculpting doesn’t require much aftercare after your treatments, but if you want to maintain your results, you’ll have to stick to a healthy lifestyle. It’s important to maintain a well-balanced and nutritious diet to keep from developing new fat cells in the areas you targeted with CoolSculpting.

Alongside a healthy diet, integrating exercise into your routine helps you maintain a faster metabolism and a more muscular or toned physique.
