Innovative CoolSculpting is a fat diminishing treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by freezing away tough fat cells without resorting to more invasive procedures. The technique includes the use of regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they may be naturally expelled from your body to reveal a thinner physique. At Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa, we offer state-of-the-art CoolSculpting to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Schedule a consultation at our Santa Rosa, CA office to learn more about cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting and decide if this treatment is right for you.

While this noninvasive technique has proven successful with individuals of different ages, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Struggle with stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
- Don't want or are not good candidates for more invasive procedures
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment
After your consultation to organize your CoolSculpting treatments, your procedure will be planned. During your procedure, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece will be applied to the predetermined area and controlled cooling will start. The cooling delivered by the applicator will begin to attack and paralyze the fat cells. You will likely feel coolness at the time of your treatment, but this does not typically cause great discomfort. As the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat cells into the predetermined treatment area, you should prepare to feel a small amount of tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.
What to Expect
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can expect to return to standard activities following your treatment. Most often, you can return to work or school immediately following your treatment. Side effects of the procedure usually include bruising, swelling, stinging, redness, and discomfort of the treated site. These side effects are temporary and usually subside in the days following your procedure. Expect to notice results in as little as three weeks while you will see the most obvious and dramatic results 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The expense of CoolSculpting varies based on the number of treatments recommended and the amount of fat that you wish to have removed. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals to choose the best course of treatment to achieve optimal results. We will also talk to you about your out-of-pocket costs.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting works by applying a controlled temperature to destroy fat cells in selected body parts for treatment. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. The cells are then broken down by the body and disposed of through natural functions.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive, external treatment in which the device is applied to the skin's surface. With this procedure, there is absolutely no need for a recovery period. You may experience some slight swelling and discoloration immediately after treatment, but this usually only lasts for around a week.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatments that will be needed to reach your wanted results will be decided during your initial consultation. For some patients, only one treatment is enough, but other patients may need more treatment sessions, depending on the amount of fat being addressed. The number of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic goals and if there are thicker layers of fat in target sections.
Do the fat cells grow back?
While the destroyed fat cells will not regenerate, new fat cells could form. In addition, weight gain will greatly influence your results. Thus in order to maintain optimal results, it is recommended that you adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine.
