How long is Each Coolsculpting Treatment? How Many Treatments will you need?

Tag Archives: coolsculpting

Coolsculpting has been instrumental in helping hundreds of thousands of people get rid of their stubborn fat deposits. This treatment freezes the fat in specific areas. Fat cells die when exposed to very low temperatures for up to one hour.

The body then absorbs these disintegrated fat cells in a natural process giving the patient a slimmer, more youthful appearance.

A question that patients frequently ask about Coolsculpting is how many treatment sessions that they will need. The treatment sessions necessary to achieve desired results vary between patients. Most individuals require multiple treatment sessions before attaining their body goals, but a few may manage to lose fat considerably in a single sitting.

Devoted board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities and suburbs in The Golden State.

Length of a Treatment Session

The CoolSculpting treatment provider will help the patient develop a treatment plan customized to their specific goals. The duration of the CoolSculpting treatment differs with the number of treatment areas being addressed in the session.

A treatment session with the most recent CoolSculpting technology takes nearly 35 to 60 minutes. Certain patients receive treatment in more than one body area in the same session. At some practices, providers use multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators.

This enables the patient to receive treatment in multiple areas at one time. The patient, in consultation with the CoolSculpting treatment provider, may set up future appointments to meet their desired goals.

Treatment Areas

The number of areas being treated will determine the number of treatment sessions a patient will need. CoolSculpting is performed using applicators. These attach to the treatment area via gentle suction. For instance, the Cool Mini applicator is effective on the chin region and helps eliminate submental fat which causes the appearance of a double chin.

For areas such as the abdomen and thighs, larger applicators are available. The number of treatment sessions will depend on the number of treatment sites and machines available. This means that the patient may receive the entire treatment in a single Coolsculpting session or undergo multiple sessions.

Coolsculpting Treatment Sessions Required for Each Site

The outcomes of the initial Coolsculpting affect the number of treatment sessions that a patient may need. A single Coolsculpting treatment session typically eliminates 20 to 25 percent fat in the treated area.

For more significant improvements, the patient may require two or more treatments in the same location.

The number of treatments a patient will require is unclear before the procedure commences. Many surgeons take a wait and watch approach. They will usually ask the patient to wait until the results establish before making a decision on undergoing further treatment or not.

Waiting for the Final Outcomes

At the end of four months, the patient should ideally visit the surgeon for an assessment of the results. The patient will not require any further treatments if they are satisfied with the final results, their clothes fit better, and they feel more confident.

CoolSculpting vs. VelaShape Body Contouring

Accumulation of unwanted fat cells in certain areas of the body is a common concern among both women and men. This may happen due to hereditary factors, sedentary lifestyle, fat-rich diet, disease, or other reasons. Many of the patients are reluctant to choose plastic surgery options such as liposuction to get rid of excess fat deposits.

A Plastic Surgeon on a Higher Plateau

In such cases, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend a non-surgical fat reduction procedure such as CoolSculpting or VelaShape. These are innovative procedures to make the patient lose fat without any cuts or incisions or even injections. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides these advanced non-surgical fat reduction procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.


CoolSculpting is a unique fat reduction technique that has revolutionized the field of non-surgical aesthetics. It involves a highly innovative cooling process that is designed to freeze the fat and cause it to disintegrate and get eliminated from the body in a natural way. The patient does not have to go through any prolonged period of preparation or treatment, and the downtime involved is negligible.

CoolSculpting avoids the risks that are typically associated with a surgical procedure, and achieves more subtle and natural-looking results. It will take about two to three months for the results to be established with CoolSculpting, but a patient will be able to lose about half an inch from their waistline after just a single treatment session lasting less than an hour. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for this procedure.

Multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve the desired degree of fat reduction. Most common areas with stubborn fat deposits that are treated with CoolSculpting include hips, thighs, abdomen, back, flanks, upper arms, calves, neck, and cheeks. Patients should know that CoolSculpting is not specifically designed to achieve skin tightening or remove cellulite, but it may provide marginal benefits in this aspect as the fat reduction occurs.

VelaShape procedure is also aimed at improving body contours in specific areas of the body. However, as compared to CoolSculpting, VelaShape is based on a radically opposite approach to improve the contours. This technique combines radio frequency (RF) waves, laser energy, and suctioning massage to reduce fat tissue and improve the contours.

VelaShape is primarily used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and love handles. The procedure provides a firming and lifting impact to the skin because of the mechanical tissue manipulation, which leads to enhanced circulation and lymphatic drainage.

VelaShape feels like a warm deep tissue massage, as against CoolSculpting, which exposes the targeted areas to very cold temperatures. Visible results in terms of smoother skin can be seen after the first treatment session in most cases. Three to six treatments may be required overall to achieve optimal results. Patients should consult with the surgeon carefully in order to determine the body contouring procedure that will be most suited to meet their personal aesthetic needs.

B&A-Bowes-FL-2Set-8wk-Back-LoResUnwanted fat pockets in certain areas of the body such as hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, and neck can make the body contours appear uneven or unsightly. Women and men who seek non-surgical treatments to get rid of these stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise have a number of innovative options available today. One of the most popular fat reduction non-invasive options is CoolSculpting.

Another treatment option that adopts a radically different approach is UltraShape, but it is also designed to achieve the same aesthetic results as CoolSculpting. While CoolSculpting aims to freeze the fat in order to disintegrate unwanted fat cells, UltraShape heats up the fat to melt away the fat cells. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding areas can receive fat reduction treatments from Dr. Gary Motykie.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is based on a unique fat cooling process that was developed by Harvard scientists to achieve results similar to liposuction, but without involving any cuts, incisions, or injections. The treatment provider will focus the cooling treatment over the targeted areas of the body where the fat needs to be reduced. The treatment will cause the fat cells to freeze, while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected.

This happens because the fat cells response more quickly to cold temperatures. Once these cells are frozen to their death, they will gradually disintegrate and get eliminated from the body in a natural way. The patient will lose fat in a natural and subtle way over a period of several months, and enhanced body contours will be restored. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby locations for CoolSculpting.

How does UltraShape work?

UltraShape is the first and only FDA cleared non-invasive device that is based on ultrasound technology to improve body contours. Unlike CoolSculpting, the UltraShape procedure generates controlled heat through ultrasound energy in the targeted fat cells. Focused, pulsed ultrasound waves selectively and mechanically destroy unwanted fat cells to sculpt the body to a desired shape.

UltraShape differentiates itself from other traditional ultrasound based fat reduction treatments in its energy delivery system. In this procedure, ultrasound energy is transmitted in pulses, which allows for controlled increase in temperature (below 0.5° Celsius elevation). This causes instant and selective fat cell destruction in a non-thermal, mechanical manner.


Both CoolSculpting and UltraShape are “walk-in” procedures that do not involve any significant bruising, swelling, pain, or downtime. A single treatment session can be completed in about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area of treatment. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired aesthetic goals in both cases. Thousands of patients receive these treatments with very successful results every year.

Both treatments offer a non-invasive alternative to minimize localized fat deposits. Fat reduction is regular and homogeneous throughout the treated area. Results are measurable and long lasting, as long as the patient maintains an active lifestyle and balanced diet regimen. Patient comfort is maintained throughout the treatment, and no side effects or adverse events are reported in both CoolSculpting and UltraShape procedures in most cases.

B&A-Bachelor-OUTH-2Set-16wk-Right-LoRes B&A-Becker-FL-2Set-12wk-Side-LoRes B&A-Boudreaux-AB-2Set-8wk-3Q-LoRes B&A-Bowes-FL-2Set-8wk-Back-LoResA slim body is a dream that celebrities and non-celebrities, both have. It makes you look fit, smart, healthy and you feel great about yourself and feel comfortable in your skin. However, it is easier said than done. It is not that we don’t want to have a shapely self, but sometimes our internal and external circumstances make it impossible to attain what we want.

To break through our barriers, sometimes we need additional help and that’s where cosmetic solutions come into the picture. The latest technique approved by FDA is called CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ. Dr. Gray Motykie, a Beverly Hills surgeon is surprised by the results shown by CoolSculpting. He has had a surge of patients asking for the treatment  in person at his offices in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Angeles California.

What is CoolSculpting?

It is a fat reduction procedure and is a great alternative to invasive techniques to reduce the fat. This technique is being considered superior to existing invasive and non-invasive procedures.

CoolSculpting vs. invasive procedure

All surgical procedures are invasive, so whether it is abdominoplasty or liposuction, it involves getting under anesthesia so you don’t feel the pain of the knife. These procedures have risks just like all other surgeries have and they require a lot of downtimes as the procedure and recovery, both are long drawn. The changes produced are stark and sometimes can overwhelm the patient.

CoolSculpting uses a cooling mechanism that does the same thing, but without inducing sudden overwhelming changes. It doesn’t involve painful incisions like in liposuction to suck the fat out or in case of tummy tuck surgery, where large cuts are made so fat can be removed physically. CoolSculpting does so by freezing the unhealthy fat without harming the healthy tissue.

CoolSculpting vs. non-invasive procedure

Most of the non-invasive procedures in the market like laser, ultrasound and so on are heat based procedures where chances of burns are high. They also tend to impact the healthy tissue surrounding the fat. CoolSculpting on the other hand uses freezing or cooling mechanism to cut down the fat cells at the same time preserving surrounding healthy tissue. It must be noted that though CoolSculpting is a recommended procedure for people who have ideal BMI, but stubborn fat deposits in certain parts of their body, which just refuse to melt even when they workout or eat healthy, so it is not a weight loss procedure. It is rather an aesthetic procedure.

What happens during CoolSculpting?

A patient undergoing CoolSculpting will experience intense cold and pressure on the area which is being treated for fat deposits. However, it is felt only for a few minutes. You can catch up on sleep, watch TV, listen to your iPod or read a book while the procedure is done. A single session can last from 1 to 3 hours. It doesn’t require any downtime so you can go back to work as soon as you are done. Numbness and redness are reported side effects.

CoolSculpting vs Thermage | Beverly Hills | Los Angeles Body ContouringCoolSculpting and Thermage are two innovative, non-surgical treatments to reduce unwanted fat and provide enhance body contours. However, both the technologies involve radically different treatment approaches to the same problem of fat removal from stubborn fat pockets in the body. Dr. Gary Motykie provides a wide range of surgical as well as non-surgical aesthetic and anti-aging treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

What is CoolSculpting?

Patients who are looking to lose fat without surgery may consider CoolSculpting by Zeltiq. This revolutionary technology is designed to freeze the fat and eliminate it from the targeted fat pockets in the body. The procedure involves focused exposure to a cooling device that targets unwanted fat cells and freezes them off. The frozen cells eventually disintegrate in a natural way and get removed through the lymphatic system.

The treatment involves no incisions, needles or other invasive approaches. The patient can achieve the desired results gradually in a natural looking manner and without any pain or discomfort. There is no downtime involved in this fat loss procedure, and patients can go back to work immediately or resume their daily routine. CoolSculpting avoids all the typical risks and potential side effects that may be associated with a surgical procedure.

CoolSculpting Procedure

The cooling device is positioned carefully over the targeted area of the body. The bulge will get suctioned into the device as it is gently trapped between two cooling panels. The patient will feel a firm pull into the device while the treatment is in progress. Each treatable area will be exposed to the cooling procedure for about one hour.

Multiple treatment sessions are usually required to achieve the desired results. When the procedure is performed by an experienced and certified treatment provider, it will achieve optimal outcomes in the target area without causing any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

What is Thermage?

Thermage is a minimally invasive procedure designed to reduce fat and tighten loose skin. Unlike CoolSculpting, which freezes the fat, Thermage involves melting of the fat with gentle heat. The patient will lose fat as the radiofrequency energy is focused on targeted fat cells in a controlled manner. The disintegrated cells will gradually get removed from the body through the natural process of urination.

Thermage Procedure

The heat energy is delivered through a thin cannula that is inserted underneath the patient’s skin. The energy heats the deeper layers of the tissue, causing the fat to melt and preparing for its ejection from the body. In some cases, the heat in the deeper skin layers may also stimulate the natural production of collagen, and help improve the condition of skin laxity in the treated areas.

Key Difference

The key difference between this procedure and CoolSculpting is that it involves insertion of a cannula into the deeper layers of the skin for direct delivery of heat energy. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is a completely non-invasive procedure and does not involve any cuts, incisions, or injections.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat procedure designed to help a patient lose fat in a safe, effective, and predictable manner. The procedure has gained rapid popularity ever since it was introduced, and has revolutionized the area of non-surgical aesthetic treatments.

Dr. Gary Motykie provides this innovative and proven treatment to help patients reduce unwanted fat pockets without having to undergo surgery. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas have an opportunity to receive this treatment at Dr. Motykie’s medical spa.

Different from Other Treatments

CoolSculpting adopts a unique technology that is designed to simply freeze the fat away. Most non-invasive fat reduction solutions are thermal based or laser based. The goal of these treatments is to heat the deeper layers of fat in order to eliminate the unwanted fat cells. Surgical treatments, on the other hand, are invasive and disrupt the hardened fat deposits and remove them aggressively.

Against all these treatment approaches, CoolSculpting follows a completely radical approach of treating the targeted fat deposits with a cooling process. The unique and patented method employed in CoolSculpting to lose fat is known as cryolipolysis. Unwanted fat cells disintegrate with focused application of cold temperature, and gradually exit from the body system in a natural way. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas may learn more about this treatment during at consultation with Dr. Motykie.

Advantages of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a completely safe and painless way to lose unwanted fat pockets and achieve an improved body contour. It avoids all the potential risks and side effects that are typically associated with a surgery. The procedure involves no downtime, which makes it ideal for busy or working patients. Results appear gradually, which makes the fat reduction process look more natural and not sudden or conspicuous.

Vanquish System of Fat Reduction

Vanquish Fat Removal SystemWhile CoolSculpting has been around for several years now, but Vanquish is one of the more recent technologies to lose fat in a non-surgical way. This innovative treatment has been developed by BTL Aesthetics. The treatment process is based on radio frequency technology, which is completely different from the cooling technology used in CoolSculpting.

Some fat reduction aesthetic experts believe that Vanquish may go on to achieve the next level in body contouring. While the success of CoolSculpting has been roundly lauded by experts for a few years now, Vanquish appears to be a new solution for people who are willing to try a different treatment approach to reduce fat. Supporters of Vanquish system say it is a fast, safe and effective way to treat unwanted fats in an entire field without downtime.

Heat-based Technology

The key difference between Vanquish and CoolSculpting is that Vanquish is a heat-based treatment approach. The procedure involves the placement of a radio frequency panel over the targeted area for about half an hour. The RF emitted from the panel heats the surface skin to about 40 degrees Celsius, and the temperature of the underlying fat cells may reach temperatures up to 45 degrees Celsius. This intense heat is sufficient to destruct fat cells.

Coolsculpting Treatment – Beverly Hills | Los Angeles | West Hollywood

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, provides state of the art treatments for cosmetic enhancement. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and surrounding communities have an advantage to receive aesthetic treatments that are highly innovative and effective.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-invasive aesthetic treatment designed to reduce unwanted fats and achieve enhanced body contour without surgery. Many patients are keen to lose fat, but may not be able to gain much success with diet and exercise if the fats are very stubborn. Patients have the option to opt for plastic surgery procedures or choose a non-surgical treatment in case they are unwilling to go for surgery. Out of the various non-surgical treatments available today, CoolSculpting is the most unique because it involves a process to freeze the fat off.

Unlike other non-surgical procedures that are laser based, radio frequency based or ultrasound based, CoolSculpting does not employ a heat based technique to melt away unwanted fats. It adopts a radically different approach that is highly safe, precise, and does not cause any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

This approach involves treating the targeted fat deposit area with an intense cooling process that will freeze off the unwanted fat cells to their death. The targeted fat cells disintegrate gradually and the body will lose fat in a natural looking manner over a period of several months.

Length of a Single CoolSculpting Treatment

At the time of the initial consultation, the CoolSculpting expert providers at the Motykie Medical Spa will discuss with the patient how much time may have to be allocated for a single treatment. This will depend on the individual treatment plan that is developed for a particular patient according to their health condition, areas of concern, body fat condition and their unique aesthetic goals.

Before the length of treatment is discussed, the provider will make sure the patient understands all aspects of CoolSculpting treatment and how it will successfully freeze the fat off from the specific areas of the body.

Patients in and around Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles who may visit Motykie Medical Spa for this treatment are encouraged to discuss all their concerns and seek answers to any queries or doubts that they may have about this treatment.

Sometimes the patient may not be ready to undergo a single prolonged treatment, in which case the provider may decide to make a treatment plan that involves multiple treatments of shorter length. Conversely, some patients may be keen to complete treatment in minimum possible sittings, and the length of each treatment may be increased accordingly.

On an average, a typical CoolSculpting treatment may last anywhere between one and three hours. Patients who have a moderate body weight will be able to lose fat most effectively, which makes them ideal candidates for this treatment. A single treatment session of one to two hours may suffice for one particular treatment area such as the abdomen or flanks.

The patient may lose as much as 15 to 20 percent fat in the targeted area over a period of two to four months with a single treatment. Some patients may need a second treatment after a gap of a few months in order to achieve more comprehensive or pervasive results.

Repeat Treatments

CoolSculpting treatment will freeze the fat cells permanently, and the targeted fat cells will not grow back. However, some patients may still have a need for repeat treatments for different reasons. In some cases, all the targeted fat cells may not be killed off in a single treatment session.

Therefore, within a few months after treatment, if the patient tends to gain weight again, the remaining fat cells may spread over the treated as well as the non-treated areas. If the patient maintains a regular diet and exercise regimen, this condition will most likely not arise, and the patient can enjoy the results for the long term.

In some other cases, the patient may be satisfied with the outcome in the particular area such as abdomen, and may decide to lose fat in another area such as the buttocks or thighs after a few months. In such a case, a repeat treatment in a new area may be performed after a gap of about two to three months.

Depending on individual cases, the treatments may be repeated twice or thrice with a gap of two to three months each. As CoolSculpting is a completely safe, proven, and FDA approved fat reduction treatment, it is possible to have multiple treatments of varying lengths as per the individual aesthetic needs of a patient.

A CoolSculpting Overview

CoolSculpting is a unique non-surgical procedure to reduce stubborn pockets of fat from specific areas of the body. These fats do not easily go away with diet or exercise, and the patient may not be keen to undergo a surgical procedure to reduce these fat deposits. In such situations, Dr. Motykie may recommend CoolSculpting to the right candidates in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and nearby locations. He will also show before and after photos to explain a new patient about what kind of results to expect from this procedure.

CoolSculpting adopts a revolutionary approach to reduce unwanted fats from the body. Instead of heating the targeted fat tissue, it involves a process of cooling the targeted fat cells to the point of freezing. Once the fat cells go through this cooling process, they tend to disintegrate over a period of time. The fat deposits in the treated areas deplete gradually, and the patient achieves the desired level of fat reduction without surgery.

Cost Components in Regards to this Procedure

The financial cost of CoolSculpting procedure may differ from one location to another and from one practice to another even within the same location. A number of cost components determine the overall cost of any procedure, including this one.

Geographical factors can make a difference to the overall cost. The cost of CoolSculpting in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles or other areas in CA may be slightly different from the cost of the same procedure in Waco, TX. The cost of living index of the two states may vary, which will have an influence on the cost of the procedure in both places.

Another key component that may impact the overall cost of CoolSculpting at a particular practice or medical spa is the quality of services provided. The skills, experience and reputation of the doctor who heads the facility, the quality and training of the support staff, the kind of technology and equipment available at the facility, and the scale of comforts and services provided at the facility can make a difference to the cost of CoolSculpting between two practices.

Dr. Motykie provides personalized care and attention to his patients, explains them the real impact and pros and cons of various treatment options with the help of before and after photos and other material, and helps them make informed choices.

Dr. Gary Motykie, a board certified Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, addressed this topic on the Marie Show!

For many people, Botox is synonymous with the best non-surgical anti-aging treatment in the world. Both men and women, including many celebrities, have enjoyed the cosmetic benefits of Botox for several years. However, not much is known commonly about the medical benefits of Botox. Botox has received approvals from FDA to treat several medical conditions, and in fact, Botox was originally created to address medical conditions, while cosmetic benefits followed later.

Botox Insights

Scientists discovered botulinum toxin, the chemical that is used to produce Botox, more than a century ago. For several decades, researchers continued to test the usability and effectiveness of Botox to treat various medical conditions. When Botox was used in 1980 to treat eye conditions such as crossed eye and involuntary blinking, doctors observed that the treatment also resulted in fading away of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. That is when the cosmetic benefits of Botox were identified, and the FDA approval for such benefits finally came in 2002.

Botox has recently received another FDA approval to treat crow’s feet beneath the eyes. Botox works on the principle of blocking neuromuscular communication in the targeted overactive muscle, and allowing it to relax. The chemical used in Botox is one of the most powerful and lethal substances. It is used on humans in extremely diluted form to achieve safe results. Doctors recommend that Botox should be used only by an experienced Botox provider or a qualified cosmetic surgeon. Each year more than 4.7 million procedures involving Botox are performed in the United States.

Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a serious disease involving muscular dysfunction. Muscles usually tend to malfunction either by way of paralysis, which means they stop responding, or by way of cramping or spasticity, which means they become hyperactive. In MS, a disruption of communication between the muscle and nerve occurs, which leads to spasticity.

Muscles in the affected area of the body begin to cramp up because the communication between muscles and nerves has been severed. Botox based treatment for MS involves identifying the troubled muscles using tiny electrodes and then directly injecting Botox medication into those muscles.

Treatment for Loss of Bladder Control

The urinary bladder is a single, large muscle which squeezes and releases just like a water-filled balloon to allow the passage of urine at will. Bladder control occurs due to coordination between the brain and the bladder muscle. It allows for holding of urine in the bladder until the bladder is reasonably full. If a person’s bladder muscle becomes spastic, the bladder control will become weak and urine may leak involuntarily.

Treatment for loss of bladder control is available in surgery as well as oral medicine. However, side effects with oral drugs and a highly invasive bladder surgery may not be fantastic and salient options for many patients. Botox can help in such cases by providing a simpler and safer treatment. Botox allows the bladder muscle to calm down, allowing for more normalized urinary function.

Treatment for Other Conditions

The FDA has approved Botox for the treatment for various medical conditions such as jaw pain, chronic migraine and excessive perspiration. The advantage with Botox over other treatments is that just one-time treatment can have an effect lasting for about four to six months, and a single treatment session will usually last for just a few minutes. The cost of a typical Botox treatment will range between $200 and $250 for a single treatment area.
