4 Reasons People Choose CoolSculpting Over Surgery

Have you heard the term “freezing your fat away”? At Desert Med Aesthetics in Palm Springs, we give patients the option to say farewell to stubborn pockets of fat through the revolutionary treatment CoolSculpting. This innovative body sculpting procedure targets areas such as the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs without the risk or downtime associated with invasive surgery. With no anesthesia, incisions, or sutures involved, CoolSculpting can help you reach your body goals in the safest way possible.


Here are four reasons why people are choosing CoolSculpting over surgery.

1.  CoolSculpting Is Proven to Freeze Away Fat

It seems that every day we are introduced to a new, proven way to get rid of fat quickly, whether it be a new fat loss program, a gym membership, a diet, or a pill—all claim to work miracles but deliver nothing but empty promises. It’s for this reason that more men and women are turning to CoolSculpting, a scientifically proven and FDA-approved treatment that freezes away fat cells through a process called cryolipolysis. As opposed to liposuction, which is a cosmetic procedure requiring a form of anesthesia and recovery time, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that produces impressive results on stubborn areas of fat.

2. Most Adults Are Candidates for CoolSculpting

When you arrive for your consultation at Desert Med Aesthetics, one of our specialists will first determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Ideal candidates are within 30 pounds of their goal weight and who have a healthy exercise and diet routine established into their life. During your consultation, we will discuss all of the benefits and risks of the procedure to make sure that you have the best experience possible.


CoolSculpting is not appropriate for patients who are pregnant or suffer from certain medical conditions, which is why it’s important that you share your medical history with your CoolSculpting specialist before moving forward with your procedure. Although CoolSculpting is intended to help patients slim down in stubborn areas, it shouldn’t be used as a total weight loss solution but rather as an aid in your weight loss journey.

3. CoolSculpting Treatments Are Quick and Painless

In addition to providing gorgeous results, CoolSculpting treatments can also fit into even the busiest of schedules. Sessions generally last between 30 to 60 minutes for one treatment area. Our expert technicians at Desert Med Aesthetics will begin by placing a gel pad over the treatment area, which is then secured with comfortable straps. You may feel some slight coldness along with a mild sensation of pulling or tugging, but nothing that should be too uncomfortable. In fact, most patients are free to relax, scroll through their phones, or even watch their favorite television shows on a device.

4. No Downtime with CoolSculpting

It’s no secret that there is a period after surgery where rest and recovery are necessary. Since there’s no downtime associated with CoolSculpting, patients can return to their daily routines right after their treatment. Some mild side effects such as redness, swelling, and bruising can be expected around the treatment area, but they should disappear within the next few days.
