You have a healthy diet and a solid exercise regimen, but some stubborn areas of fat persist. At Refined Dermatology, we get it. They say you can’t target fat loss, but that’s no longer the case. CoolSculpting lets you target stubborn pockets of fat safely, comfortably, and quickly. It’s the non-surgical alternative to liposuction that allows you to freeze away fat. CoolSculpting isn’t a “fat loss” procedure, and it’s designed for those who are already at or close to their target weight. Instead, it’s a means of contouring the body to finally get rid of those pesky areas of fat that refuse to go. Connect with Refined Dermatology in Los Gatos and find out if you’re a good candidate for this popular procedure.*
CoolSculpting works by targeting areas of fat to eliminate the fat cells. How many treatments you’ll need depends on your goals and body. After your consultation our Master CoolSculpters will tell you the number of treatments you’ll need. There is absolutely no invasive procedure involved. Instead, an exterior applicator is placed on the target area(s) while the fat is “frozen.”
There may be a feeling of suction, but the procedure itself is so low-key, you can easily squeeze in a Netflix episode or check your email during the session. Side effects are rare and minimal, though temporary skin laxity can occur. If loose skin is another concern of yours, Refined Dermatology offers a variety of skin tightening, fat reduction, and cellulite treatment procedures. These can be a great complement to any CoolSculpting treatment. A very uncommon, but possible, side effect can include discoloration of the skin which can fade with time. In cases of hyperpigmentation, exacerbated by sun exposure, laser skin therapy can address the issue.
When fat is frozen, it will naturally be absorbed by the body in coming weeks and months. You’ll see full results within six months of your final treatment. Only CoolSculpting and liposuction can permanently remove fat. Diet and exercise simply reduce fat cells, they don’t remove them. If you want fat gone for good, and safely with no anesthesia or incisions, CoolSculpting may be the answer.

The best candidates are at a healthy BMI. Are you within 30 pounds of your goal weight? Then you’re probably a great candidate! Are you interested in liposuction, but are rightfully wary of unnecessary surgeries? CoolSculpting might be the alternative you’ve been looking for. Suitable as services for men and women alike, CoolSculpting can treat the abdomen, flanks, back, and even the dreaded turkey neck. Kybella is another procedure that may be a great fit for these smaller, more delicate regions.
Remember that every body is different, but every body needs fat. Too much removal, or uneven removal by unskilled hands, can lead to pockets and divots. That’s why we use different treatments to target fat with a variety of CoolSculpting applicators. Schedule your appointment with Refined Dermatology in Lost Gatos today by calling 408-384-3845.
