Cutting-edge CoolSculpting is a fat cell minimizing procedure created to sculpt and shape the body by freezing difficult fat without going under the knife. The procedure employs the application of monitored cooling, also known as cryolipolysis, to freeze fat cells so that they may be organically removed from your body to create a leaner silhouette. At Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA, led by plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas, we use advanced CoolSculpting to help you realize your aesthetic goals. Schedule an appointment for more information about CoolSculpting and find out if this procedure is the right one for you.
"I get the Signature Peel with aesthetician Ashley and could not recommend her more highly. LOVE HER. She is so knowledgeable, sweet and calming...even though I’m getting a chemical peel she has me feel so relaxed like I’m getting a full massage. I’ve had peels at other high-end medspas but have never received better results than with Ashley. Based on her knowledge, skill and beautiful energy, I wholeheartedly give Ashley 5+ stars. She’s the best."- N.B. / Google / Jun 21, 2019

Although this procedure has shown to be beneficial for women and men of all age groups, those most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are at or near their ideal weight
- Deal with difficult areas of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise
- Are intimidated by or are not ideal candidates for surgery
- Understand realistic goals for the results of their procedure
Following your initial appointment to design your treatment plan, your first procedure will be arranged. At your appointment, the CoolSculpting handpiece and a special gel pad are used on the desired area and cryolipolysis will be initiated. The cooling technology, delivered through the handpiece, will target and freeze the fat. It is not uncommon to experience a cold sensation while receiving this procedure, but this should not create pain. Since the handpiece uses suction to pull the fat toward the area to be treated, you can expect to experience a minor pulling or stinging, but these will be completely normal sensations.
What to Expect
As CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can return to normal activities after your procedure. Symptoms of the treatment can include stinging, redness, swelling, bruising, and soreness of the treatment area. These symptoms are short-lived and typically fade in the hours after your treatment. You should expect to enjoy results within three weeks with the most impressive results appearing 1 – 3 months following your CoolSculpting procedure.
