CoolSculpting Q & A

by Michael Temkin, DO



Dr. Temkin in San Ramon, CA is proud to offer CoolSculpting, a procedure which targets fat quickly, non-invasively, and effectively. It is the only FDA-approved procedure which uses controlled cooling to target and flush fat cells.

We are also the only clinic to incorporate a weight-loss program with the CoolSculpting procedure.

If desired, patients may pair CoolSculpting with the LeanMD program to lose fat cells and keep weight off through positive lifestyle changes. By bringing these programs together, our patients see even more amazing, lasting results.





How does CoolSculpting work?

When Dr. Temkin applies the CoolSculpting device, it delivers controlled cooling to the adipose tissue that stores body fat. While your skin feels chilly to the touch, the cold goes through your skin to target the fat tissue below.

The burst of cold changes the composition of the fat cells. Your body senses the cells as damaged, triggering a response to dispose of them. As the fat tissue breaks down, your lymphatic system flushes it away. Once these cells are gone, they’re gone for good, and you’ll see the desired changes in your body contours.

Which Areas Can I Have Treated With CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is ideal for those larger areas that you just can’t seem to tighten up, no matter how hard you exercise. This FDA-approved treatment breaks fat in your:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Belly
  • Flanks (also called love handles)
  • Upper and lower back
  • Under the buttocks
  • Under the chin

Dr. Temkin’s CoolSculpting treatment rooms are safe, clean, and private suites are available for your comfort and convenience.

When will I see results?

CoolSculpting results in a long-lasting fat loss, but the fat doesn’t disappear immediately. You’ll start noticing results about three weeks after your treatment, with more results around two months after your session. Your body will continue working to flush the targeted fat cells for up to six months after treatment.

Dr. Temkin has two CoolSculpting devices, which means you can achieve twice the body sculpting in a single session. Depending on your body-contouring goals, more than one session may be necessary. Dr. Temkin will discuss a treatment plan to make sure your expectations will be met.

Can anyone get CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a body-shaping system designed to help people reduce fat -- those stubborn bulges. It’s not for people who need to lose a large amount of weight. But because Dr. Temkin uses CoolSculpting in combination with a medically supervised weight loss program, even if you’re not at or near your ideal body weight, you may still be a candidate for CoolSculpting treatment.

You’ll work with Dr. Temkin to establish safe and effective weight loss goals. As you see results from the diet and activity program, CoolSculpting treatments can be phased in to help you reach your desired body shape.
