It can be beyond frustrating and aggravating; you eat sensibly, exercise regularly, and lead a healthy lifestyle.
And yet, there they are—unsightly fat deposits in all the wrong places, defying all your efforts.
It’s maddening. But now there’s a way to regain your “cool.”
Welcome to CoolSculpting.
Also known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA-approved, nonsurgical, noninvasive fat removal treatment innovation that does not involve needles, permanently eliminating fat cells in treated areas.
At Tri Valley Medspa in Walnut Creek CoolSculpting uses a unique device that cools your fat to a temperature that destroys it without harming your skin or other tissues.
While studying the effects of human frostbite, researchers discovered that fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin. With this treatment, your body naturally eliminates those frozen, dead fat cells. The result is a more contoured, sleek, and sculpted body.
But here’s what it is NOT.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it is designed to remove and eliminate targeted fat cells.
There are almost too many to name! This treatment is nonsurgical, noninvasive, and requires no needles or hospitalization.
Sessions are performed in the safety and privacy of our offices, with little to no risks or side effects. There is no downtime, leaving you free to return to your regular activities immediately, and best of all, it leaves no scars.
Patients are currently using CoolSculpting in Walnut Creek on areas such as:
You are if you have tried diet and exercise but have been unable to significantly eliminate or reduce stubborn fat deposits that have created unwanted and noticeable bulges.
Some people should not seek this treatment, including those who have:
You should also avoid treatments if you are pregnant or nursing, and it should never be performed on areas with varicose veins or nerve damage.
CoolSculpting is safe and effective only when performed by trained and licensed medical providers. Safety is always our number one priority and we strive to deliver the best CoolSculpting Walnut Creek has to offer. You are invited to book a consultation by calling 925-875-9011.
During your consultation, we will listen carefully to learn about your goals and expectations so that we can devise a customized plan for you. We will gladly take the time to answer all of your questions.
Wear comfortable and non-delicate clothes to your treatment appointment. Also, come well hydrated because water is the key to eliminating fat cells through your lymphatic system as quickly as possible.
Your provider will hold your targeted treatment areas between two paddles. The temperature of these paddles is then lowered, making them sufficiently cold to destroy fat cells but completely safe for your skin and other tissues.
The procedure typically takes between 35 and 75 minutes, depending on the size and locations of your targeted areas. No anesthesia is required.
Following your treatment, you may likely feel some exercise soreness for a day or two, but you will be able to drive yourself after the procedure and jump right back into your regular activities.
No pills or supplements are needed after your procedure. Nor are then any prescribed diet or exercise requirements, but many people find that after this treatment, they are more motivated and eager to take good care of themselves.
Data shows that CoolSculpting removes fat in targeted areas by as much as 25 percent.
You will start to see results in about three weeks. Your body contour will continue to improve as your body removes those dead fat cells.
The fat cells in the treatment area will be permanently destroyed, and should you develop fat deposits in the future, they will be in other areas of your body. You will not require additional CoolSculpting treatments in that area.
CoolSculpting is the number one noninvasive fat removal procedure in the world, with over eight million treatments performed globally.

No, but you will feel some pulling and tugging on your skin — as well as extreme cold — as the device is applied.
Yes, but they are both few and rare.
There is a slight risk of nerve pain, and you may experience mild and temporary swelling.
Fewer than one percent of patients develop a complication called paradoxical fat hyperplasia, in which the number of fat cells in treated areas increases rather than decreases. In this unlikely occurrence, you may need liposuction or tummy tuck surgery.
They are permanent in your treated areas.
While CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment, liposuction is invasive and usually requires general anesthesia. Additionally, liposuction involves incisions and scars and requires downtime. Cryolipolysis doesn’t.
Yes, depending on how much fat is removed. Some patients’ waist sizes are reduced by as much as three inches, and dropping two sizes is not uncommon.
Since this is a cosmetic procedure, your insurance will not cover the costs.
That will depend on the number and sizes of your treatment areas. Personalized treatment plans generally cost between $2,000 and $4,000. Discuss costs with your provider before your treatment.
