Are you sick of that bulge at the top of your pants, even though you’ve been eating healthy and doing multiple sets of mountain climbers and Russian twists in the gym?
Also known as “flanks”, love handles are one of the hardest areas to tone for both men and women. Here at Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery, we offer CoolSculpting® to solve this problem. CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses cryolipolysis technology to get rid of stubborn fat cells.
If you are looking for a safe, effective way to eliminate unwanted fat and get the well-defined body shape you’ve always dreamed of – with zero surgery or downtime – then CoolSculpting is a great option for you. The results are lasting, noticeable, and proven.
Absolutely. CoolSculpting treatment is a body contouring procedure that works by directing intense cold temperature to destroy fat in the treatment areas
Despite the powerful cooling technology, the treatment is very gentle in the way it works with the skin and underlying tissue. CoolSculpting treatments only target the excess fat cells in an area, freezing them to be purged out of your body forever.
Since CoolSculpting is administered via applicators that come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, nearly every area of your body can be contoured with it. Even the hard-to-firm-up areas like love handles, banana rolls (under your buttocks), and double chins can be effortlessly smoothed over with CoolSculpting treatment.
You can freeze away your flanks or muffin top with just a few treatments with CoolSculpting at our Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery location in Mission Viejo..
Thanks to modern technology, there are several ways to lose weight and kill fat cells. However, freezing them is the safest and most natural option.
During your CoolSculpting treatments, your love handles will be put into a suction applicator, which will blast them with extremely cold temperatures. This freezing technique will damage and rupture only the fat cells in that area, and your body will gradually absorb them. But don’t worry, your body disposes these dead cells over time through natural functions.
One CoolSculpting session takes about 35–60 minutes per area, and patients report feeling a mild tugging, pinching, and cooling sensation. The treatment doesn’t damage the skin or tissue underneath the fat, so there is no downtime required for healing. Most of our patients are able to get on with their routine activities, including exercise, immediately after their procedure.
There’s a good reason why more and more people are turning to CoolSculpting instead of traditional liposuction. For starters, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure, so risks are minimal to none. Plus, it’s fast.
A single CoolSculpting treatment for love handles procedure reduces fat cells in the targeted area by 20–25%. You will begin to see results in as little as 3–4 weeks, but full results can take up to 3–4 months.
The first thing you need to understand when considering CoolSculpting for treatment of love handles is that it’s not a substitute for living a healthy lifestyle. If your goal is to lose a lot of weight fast without changing your diet and committing to regular workouts first, CoolSculpting is not for you.
There are also some medical conditions that make you a bad candidate for CoolSculpting treatments, including:
If you have any of these conditions, fat reduction procedures such as CoolSculpting can further complicate your health. We recommend checking with your primary care provider before having any invasive or non-invasive procedures that impact the body.
Now let’s look at what the ideal CoolSculpting candidate looks like. This is someone who:
e encourage all our CoolSculpting clients to commit to consistent exercise and a balanced, healthy diet. Gaining a significant amount if weight aftwe, the treatment may cause the results to get obscured over time or go unnoticed altogether.
Most of our patients see a 20–25% fat reduction in the treatment areas after the very first session. However, it will take 1–3 months after your last session to see full results. In some cases, results can take up to six months or longer to appear, depending on how well your body works in eliminating the dead fat deposits.
After your first session of CoolSculpting for love handles, you may notice your clothes are beginning to feel a little looser even if you can’t see a difference.
It is important to have realistic expectations. You won’t walk out of your CoolSculpting appointment one size smaller, and it will take a few weeks for you to see the outcome. However, the no-surgery, no-anesthesia, and no-downtime are considerable benefits that make this fat reduction procedure a no-brainer for men and women struggling to lose excess fat and enhance their figure.
Waiting to see those flanks melt off – or freeze off, to be precise – your body after the first treatment can be exciting and frustrating. Most of our patients ask if there are ways they can improve their body sculpting results, so here’s your answer: yes, you can!
While more research needs to be done into the idea of speeding up the body’s natural process of eliminating the dead fat cells, here at Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery, we have observed something interesting.
In our experience, CoolSculpting love handles patients who have a robust lymphatic system tend to experience faster results than those who don’t. Since the role of your lymphatic system is to flush out the waste, this makes sense.
Here are a few steps you can take to boost the function of your lymphatic system and accelerate the removal of dead fat deposits from your body:
Drink at least 8–10 glasses of water every day. Drinking plenty of water will help your body expel the fat cells faster. Also hydrating before and after the procedure helps your body recover more rapidly.
Studies show that massage stimulates the lymph and blood vessels, helping move the fluid along.
Regular aerobic activity and strength training increases the efficiency of both lymph circulation and the cardiovascular system.
Turmeric, ginger, garlic, green leafy vegetables, and olive oil are powerful anti-inflammatory foods that help strengthen the lymphatic system.
Dry brushing your body, especially the CoolSculpting treatment areas, can release congestion and stimulate lymphatic flow.
A certified massage therapist specifically trained in the lymphatic drainage therapy can target the treatment area to stimulate the fluid circulation in your lymph nodes, speeding up the removal of unwanted fat cells. Also, it’s deeply relaxing!
This is perhaps the most frequent question we get from people. Both Liposuction and CoolSculpting are popular fat reduction procedures so we understand why it might be confusing to pick the right option for you.
The answer depends on your treatment goals. The CoolSculpting applicators are designed to treat local fat deposits. If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment to reduce fat in a particular area, such as your outer thighs or love handles, we recommend CoolSculpting.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a more dramatic change in your body contour, or you want to get rid of excess fat over a larger area of the body, liposuction might be a better choice.
Liposuction is a surgical treatment option which allows for more fat to be removed during a single session. This makes it an aggressive procedure, and as with any surgery, it comes with considerable risks.
Ever since the FDA cleared CoolSculpting for removal of fat deposits that form muffin tops and love handles, it has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around the world. Here are a few reasons that make CoolSculpting a consistently effective and preferred fat-reduction treatment:
You won’t be put under anesthesia, and there are no needles involved.
Unlike traditional liposuction that can cause scarring, CoolSculpting doesn’t pose that risk.
You can return to your work – or gym – immediately after.
You may feel mild sensations of cold, tugging, and pinching, but these go away within a few minutes.
CoolSculpting can effectively remove the fat cells from your double chin, bra and back fat, abdomen, upper arms, outer thighs, inner thighs, and of course, love handles.
You might be doing your best to stay healthy with diet and exercise, but maybe genetics are getting in the way of attaining your dream body shape. Here at Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery, our providers can contour your figure by ridding it of stubborn fat bulges with CoolSculpting.
We are proud to offer the latest applicators from CoolSculpting which reduce treatment time, swelling, and bruising, and provide superior results in fat reduction.

Unfortunately, we have no control over the areas where fat cells concentrate in our bodies. We sometimes gain weight in troublesome spots and find it difficult to lose it no matter how hard we exercise and practice eating healthy. Even when we lose overall body fat, sometimes certain areas just won't budge.
Some people struggle with love handles, thigh fat, belly fat, armpit fat, back fat, and bra bulges. Women of all ages struggle with bra fat that goes unnoticed because it appears behind our view.
Fortunately, back fat CoolSculpting could be the savior women need to eliminate the nuisance and destroy fat cells for good.
The staff at Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery are experts in eliminating excess fat. We have handled many bra fat CoolSculpting treatments and helped to restore the confidence in many patients.
Bra bulge affects almost every woman, no matter how health-conscious they are. Fatty tissues accumulate around the upper back and armpits and create a skin fold above and below the bra line.
Although stubborn fat affects men and women of all ages, the majority of patients who seek CoolSculpting treatment for bra fat are aging women. The change in metabolism and estrogen levels affects the fat storage process resulting in weight gain, especially on the upper back.
Unhealthy eating habits and lack of activity also result in fat accumulation around the upper back and the entire body. CoolSculpting is not meant to be a major weight loss alternative. There is no non-surgical fat reduction procedure that is a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. The best candidate for CoolSculpting is near their ideal weight and just needs a little help to get rid of the last bit of unwanted fat.
CoolSculpting technology freezes and destroys fat cells in different body parts such as the bra area, chin, belly, neck, thighs and arms. The procedure is non-invasive, where a qualified physician or other medical professional uses a vacuum-like suction tool to cool the targeted body area.
They slowly move a hand-held applicator over the treated area, suctioning a portion into the device and freezing the fat cells. The procedure does not damage the healthy tissue around the unwanted fat cells. The body then naturally absorbs or eliminates the frozen fat cells throughout the coming weeks.
The procedure is pain-free, but patients usually experience slight pinching and pulling sensations before the treatment areas become numb.
Some of the side effects include:
It is vital to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to ensure the body flushes out fatty tissue and burns excess calories.
CoolSculpting is FDA cleared, meaning it is safe and effective.
At Skincredible Dermatology & Surgery, we undertake the fat reduction process with the highest standard of care and within the recommended environment.
Every woman deserves to look and feel good in their own bodies and unwanted bra fat should not stand in the way.
Skincredible brings you a safe and effective body contouring procedure that will help boost your confidence in your own skin. Our experts will help you lose weight in stubborn areas and attain your dream body shape through CoolSculpting. You'll be able to see results after just one session and will love how your clothes fit correctly.
