It can be more than a little frustrating when working out at the gym and following a healthy diet doesn’t produce the physical results you desire. Troublesome pockets of fat around the waist, hips and thighs just don’t seem to budge no matter how much you exercise.
Thankfully there is a solution. CoolSculpting is a cutting edge fat-freezing technology that slims the torso, leaving you with the slender, contoured physique that has always been just out of reach. Our Beverly Hills CoolSculpting procedure is safe, proven, FDA-sanctioned, and does not require the discomfort or downtime of more invasive procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck.
What is the science behind CoolSculpting?
Many years ago, two Harvard engineers discovered that fat tissue could be selectively targeted and frozen through a process called cryolipolysis. This system showed that surrounding skin cells, muscles and nerves all went unharmed as the fat cells suffered from apoptosis, or cell death. Cryolipolysis was then modified for the cosmetic industry, becoming CoolSculpting, a body contouring technique that has swept the nation and the world.
What happens to the fat cells after they are frozen?
After undergoing freezing, the fat deposits are simply reabsorbed and then flushed out of the body as waste. This happens gradually over time, and results continue to reveal themselves for several months after treatment.

Introducing the CoolMini!
The CoolSculpting technology has recently evolved to target the unwanted submental fat known as a double chin. The CoolMini applicator is smaller and more strategically shaped, so it is ideal for targeting the face and neck. Be sure to ask your aesthetician about the CoolMini during your consultation.
CoolMini for Double Chin Reduction
Recent advancements in CoolSculpting technology have led to the CoolMini, a modification for the CoolSculpting device that allows for treatment of smaller areas, such as an unattractive double chin. Stubborn fat under the chin can be nearly impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise alone, and most other common treatments for double chin involve invasive methods such as surgery or injections. Fat reduction with CoolMini involves a shorter recovery time and virtually no negative side effects, providing safe and effective reduction of unwanted fatty deposits. The FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment is administered by Dr. Garth Fisher at our clinic, Biomed Spa in Beverly Hills.
CoolMini Versus Kybella: The Similarities
Another form of non-surgical treatment for double chins, Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable that can be used to reduce submental fat – a double chin. Both treatments destroy fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. Both Kybella and CoolMini are approved by the FDA for use on the chin and jawline, and are non-surgical alternatives to liposuction or a surgical neck lift.
Minimal downtime and side effects for both procedures are big advantages for those who have busy schedules or want to avoid surgical intervention. While both treatments usually offer noticeable results after one treatment, multiple sessions are often required for these procedures to produce the final result.
How CoolMini Differs from Kybella
Perhaps the biggest difference between the two procedures, Kybella uses needles to inject a synthetic deoxycholic acid compound into the under-chin fatty area, while CoolMini uses a handheld device to deliver cryotherapy to the treatment area. Those who are apprehensive about needles or synthetic substances being injected into the body may opt for the CoolMini treatment because it is completely non-invasive. The cryotherapy used during CoolMini treatments simply uses cold air to freeze fat cells, with no foreign substances. However, Kybella can be used to treat smaller areas because of the precise method of injection. The CoolMini’s applicator is better used in treating larger areas of the chin and neck.
CoolMini is considered best suited for those with mature or looser skin, as skin is suctioned into the applicator during treatment. If you still have tight, firm skin, it is more difficult for the handheld device to work as it should, which is when Kybella treatments would be more effective. During your consultation, Dr. Fisher will evaluate the condition of your skin, the quantity of excess fat on chin and jawline, and make a professional recommendation for appropriate treatment.

Details of the procedure
Beverly Hills CoolSculpting is generally described by patients as an easy and fun one-hour procedure. Clients can usually nap, read, watch movies, attend to business, or play games on their smart phone while undergoing treatment.
The first step is the placement of a cooling gel on your treatment areas. This helps to protect the skin’s surface and make sure your experience is one of comfort and relaxation.
Next the cooling devices will be placed on the targeted regions of your skin. These panels are carefully monitored through our computer system to ensure even temperatures and complete patient safety.
You may feel a mild ‘suctioning’ sensation during the treatment. This is perfectly normal and means that the devices are doing their job. The fat cells are frozen, and eventually eliminated by the body as part of a natural waste removal process.
While the majority of CoolSculpting Beverly Hills clients do not experience pain, some may feel minor tingling, tenderness, redness or numbness at the treatment sites. These side effects generally evaporate within the first week and are no cause for concern.
What kind of results can I expect from CoolSculpting?
Within 1-3 weeks, you will begin to see the slimming, streamlined effect of the process. As the months accumulate, your results will solidify, with the major improvements seen at 2-4 months.
As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious diet and regular exercise, your results will hold up over the long term.
CoolSculpting patients tend to lose 20-25% of their unwanted fat. Naturally, if you desire even more fat loss, you can repeat the CoolSculpting treatment under the careful eye of your doctor.
