CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is now in Santa Barbara!

I am VERY excited to bring CoolSculpting to Santa Barbara. As many of you may know, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to achieve reduction in fat bulges without surgery, which means NO ANESTHESIA, NO INCISIONS, AND NO DOWNTIME. I think that this will be an especially attractive option in Santa Barbara where “no downtime” means that patients can immediately resume their active lifestyle- going to work or working out. Check out our new web page about this exciting new technology here.

Previously, CoolSculpting has been available in Camarillo by Dr. Ross Kaplan, who has reported great success with it. Prior to purchasing the CoolSculpting machine, I did a significant amount of research, including speaking with both California dermatologists as well as plastic surgeons around the country who universally reported that the technology really does seem to work.

While not a substitution for true liposuction, CoolSculpting in Santa Barbara provides improvements of approximately 20% of the treated volume after a single treatment, and about 40% of the treated volume if a second application is performed. It is important to remember that liposuction can evacuate a majority of fat in a treated region, but the advantage of CoolSculpting remains the non-surgical nature of the treatment and the ability to return to your normal lifestyle immediately.

CoolSculpting works by inducing crystal formation in treated fat cells, causing those cells to gradually die and be resorbed by the body. The results of CoolSculpting are seen in a natural appearing, gradual manner over the course of a few months. Patients are reporting an improvement in contour resulting in looser fitting clothes and more self confidence. I’m very pleased to bring CoolSculpting to Santa Barbara, and will look forward to treating to patients from our area, as well as Bakersfield and Santa Maria.
