CoolSculpting in San Jose eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat-reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle!

Freeze away fat? It comes down to a science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.


Popular treatment areas For CoolSculpting include:

  • Double Chin/Neck
  • Tummy/Belly Fat
  • Upper Arms
  • Hips/Love Handles
  • Outer/Inner Thighs
  • Back Bulges

CoolSculpting actively works while all you have to do is sit back, relax, and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After the treatment areas are identified, the procedure is simple. The device is positioned on your body, and controlled cooling is applied to freeze your fat. This revolutionary fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately following the session. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

How CoolSculpting Works

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an effective and safe treatment to eliminate fat cells. The procedure will help freeze fat away, getting rid of pockets of fat in areas not affected by exercise and diet. In 2010, CoolSculpting was cleared by the FDA. Since then, the procedure has been performed more than four million times across the globe.

The technology enables you to decrease the number of fat cells in the targeted area and smooth out pockets of fat to improve the shape of your body. Your fat cells are damaged beyond repair because the treatment decreases the temperature of the targeted area. The surrounding tissue is not damaged because the fat cells are more susceptible to the colder temperature.

The fat cells die naturally prior to being efficiently and safely removed by your lymphatic system. Once you have eliminated these fat cells, they are unable to return. This means your results are designed to be permanent.

The CoolSculpting Process

The procedure is simple and performed in the comfort of our office. Depending on the areas you are having treated, the process may only require minutes. This is due to the new technology used for your treatment. You can simply relax during your treatment, catch up on work from the office or read a book. Some individuals even take a refreshing nap.

Once you have finished your treatment, you can just walk out the door and continue with your day because there is no set downtime. As the fat cells are naturally eliminated by your body, you will begin to see improvements. Generally, months are required to see the improved contours of your body due to the loss of fat.

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting treatments are fast. The actual length of time depends on what area of your body you have decided to have treated. The majority of sessions are completed in just minutes. This makes the treatment easy to complete if you have a busy schedule. CoolSculpting will provide you with new contours that appear completely natural. Since the benefits are gradual, nobody will know you had the treatment done.

One of the best benefits is there is no downtime due to the cryolipolysis method used by the treatment. The fat cells in the areas you are having treated are destroyed with no damage to the surrounding skin. As your body eliminates the fat, you will notice a better contoured and leaner shape.

Dr. Lay is the only doctor that I trust. I came to him years ago, had a super fast recovery, and still now continue to fly to San Jose every year just to see Dr. Lay. In a world full of indifferent doctors, Dr. Lay stands out from the rest and is both honest and genuinely cares about his patients. He never upsells and only does the most natural work. You can trust your face in his hands!
