CoolSculpting Portland

Introducing CoolSculpting to Portland and Beaverton Patients

For many patients on a journey to sculpt and tone their bodies, the last few inches of fat can often present the most significant challenge in achieving their goal figure. Even with a detailed workout regimen and diet, excess fat cells in the abdomen, arms, back, and buttocks can be almost impossible to minimize.

At the Key Laser Institute, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Douglas Key uses FDA-cleared CoolSculpting therapy to help patients shed inches from problem areas, without surgical intervention.

Areas of Concern

CoolSculpting employs controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat cells, which are then naturally processed and eliminated by the body. This non-invasive procedure selectively targets fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues, resulting in a more sculpted appearance over time.

How CoolSculpting Works

Part of the innovative nature of CoolSculpting comes from its unique application of freezing temperatures, which affect fat cells, not surface soft tissue. During the procedure, the target area is placed between two panels, which direct freezing temperatures to only the fat cells. The adipose tissue is frozen without compromising surrounding tissue. 

In the weeks following this non-surgical fat reduction procedure, the cells are eliminated from the body, allowing individuals to enjoy the full results of their treatment typically within four to six months of their visit.

Stubborn fat accumulates over time, even when following strict diet and exercise regimes.

Using controlled cooling, Coolsculpting is able to target and kill unwanted fat cells.

Weeks after treatment, your body will continue to eliminate the dead cells.

Once fat cells have been treated with Coolsculpting, they result in a firmer, more sculpted look that should be easier to maintain.

Before Your CoolSculpting Procedure

In the days leading up to your treatment, we recommend patients avoid taking over-the-counter medications or supplements that thin blood. Similarly, maintaining a healthy diet and smoking cessation before and after your procedure can help accelerate the healing process.

During Your CoolSculpting Procedure

During CoolSculpting you first feel the cold applicator grip your area of unwanted fat and then a comfortable cooling sensation while the treatment reaches the fat cells underneath the skin. At the end of the session, you may feel an uncomfortable tingling while the treated area “wakes up” from the cold sensation. Our clinicians apply gentle compression to the area to minimize discomfort.

Overall, this is a comfortable treatment; patients regularly read or use their phone or tablet during a session to pass the time.

After Your CoolSculpting Procedure

You may experience some soreness for about 1-2 weeks post treatment. However, most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. 

After one treatment, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction in fat and best results will emerge over 4-6 months as the body gradually eliminates fat cells. You may choose to have additional treatments depending on how much fat you wish to lose.
