Fat Reduction in Santa Monica

dr. Behroozan performs all coolsculpting sessions himself

If you are struggling with excess fat in the abdomen, hips, and thighs, the Dermatology Institute of Southern California offers the most advanced fat elimination and body contouring techniques available. For those wishing to reduce the fat, our board certified dermatologist, Dr. Daniel Behroozan previously performed UltraShape®, but now uses CoolSculpting: one of the most powerful non-invasive body slimming technologies on today’s market.

UltraShape vs. CoolSculpting

Similar to UltraShape, CoolSculpting is a unique, non-surgical body sculpting device that addresses stubborn fatty deposits. While the UltraShape® device uses ultrasound (acoustic waves) to target subcutaneous fat cells and instantly destroy them, CoolSculpting quickly freezes fat away. Unlike surgery or liposuction, neither technology involves incisions, surgery, or insertion of cannula (a sterile tube) for fat evacuation.

While Dr. Behroozan previously offered UltraShape ultrasonic technology, he prefers CoolSculpting as the premiere weight reduction technology. CoolSculpting freezes precisely targeted fat cells in the abdomen, love handles, upper arms and other areas to shrink and dispel them from the body. The results peak for themselves, in the form of a healthier, more naturally contoured appearance.

How Does Fat Freezing Work?

Just like UltraShape, the CoolSculpting treatments are painless and can be done during a lunchtime visit at the Dermatology Institute of Southern California. Fat freezing is the latest technology offered to get rid of unwanted fat. After a CoolSculpting session, you can resume your daily activities immediately–no downtime is necessary. With CoolSculpting, weight loss results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Energy in bursts. Rather than emitting energy in a sustained manner, the UltraShape® device delivers the acoustic waves in pulses. This creates a minimal change in temperature, barely perceptible to the adjacent tissues. Unlike other fat reduction technologies, which rely on heat (thermal) energy to melt fat, UltraShape® eliminates fat mechanically. Once the fat is destroyed, the body clears waste through its natural cleansing process.

Ideal Candidates for Non-Invasive Body Shaping

Similar to UltraShape, Dr. Behroozan's CoolSculpting is an effective treatment for those who are close to their ideal weight, but have some added inches in stubborn spots. You might be an ideal candidate if you're:

  • Seeking a non-surgical solution to reduce fat and slim the abdomen, hips and thighs
  • Healthy and not obese
  • Realistic about results

While CoolSculpting can tone areas of concern, it is not a substitution for proper diet and regular exercise. To maintain the benefits of your treatments, you should follow a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight fluctuations.
