Dr. Kathleen L. Behr is excited to be the first in the Central Valley to offer CoolSculpting® ELITE!
CoolSculpting Elite allows us to treat more fat in half the time!
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that is cleared by the FDA. The CoolSculpting® treatment makes use of controlled cooling to get rid of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. It can be used on the abdomen, back, love handles and inner/outer thighs. Depending on the patient’s body type, it may also be used on the arms. CoolSculpting® uses fat-freezing technology to provide the best and most long-lasting results. It is a safe and effective procedure with lasting results, making patients look great from all angles.
What is the Difference Between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting ELITE?
We are exclusively offering CoolSculpting ELITE, which is the most advanced CoolSculpting technology yet. These new machines allow us to treat more fat in less time compared to the CoolSculpting machines we had previously. CoolSculpting ELITE provides larger, more efficient applicators that can treat more fat in one area. With dual applicators in one machine, we can treat two areas at a time with only one machine. This efficiency allows us to offer better pricing than ever before!
Candidates For Coolsculpting®
The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting® in Fresno is an individual who is within 20 to 30 pounds of his or her ideal body weight. A good candidate has healthy skin, minimal skin laxity, and unwanted pockets of fat. On the other hand, people with unhealthy skin, skin laxity, no well-defined bulges, or non-pinchable fat may not be good candidates for the procedure. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight loss solution. It is however, an alternative to liposuction.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® makes use of cold energy to destroy fat cells permanently. The machine pulls your fat bulge into a device with two cooling plates. A strong vacuum holds the fat. The cooling plates are then activated to a specific temperature in order to freeze fat cells until they reach the point of crystallization. Once the fat cells are crystallized, they are naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system.
How Long Does The CoolSculpting Procedure Take?
The treatment takes anywhere between 35 minutes to one hour per area. CoolSculpting ELITE offers dual sculpting in one machine so that we can treat two areas in the time it takes to treat one area. CoolSculpting® is not an invasive procedure which means patients can read magazines, listen to music, or work on their laptops during the treatment.

Recovery From CoolSculpting®
There is no downtime after a CoolSculpting® procedure. Patients can usually return to their regular activities immediately after treatment. In cases of side effects such as bruising, soreness, and temporary numbness, they are usually mild and do not require the patient to take medications or take some time off from work and other activities.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Behr’s for over 10 years as well as my family. She is a fantastic doctor, and takes time with her patients. I’ve had a few procedures (chin and coolsculpting) done by Dr. Behr and her staff, and have been so pleased with the results. I always felt self conscious, and wouldn’t be in pictures because of my “triple chin”; but that procedure changed my outlook and I’m so happy with the outcome. The coolsculpting is amazing. Again, the results are great, the self confidence is back and the compliments are wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Behr for any procedures she offers. The staff is also so welcoming and their attention to detail is above and beyond. — Lisa M.
When Will I See Results After My Fat-Freezing Treatment?
You will see a reduction of fat after a single visit. Because it takes quite some time for the body to dispose of fat cells naturally, full results may be seen after a few months. You can also lose more fat cells with additional appointments. Since fat cells eliminated during the procedure no longer return, you can expect long-lasting results as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Are CoolSculpting® Results Permanent?
Once the treated fat sells are frozen, your body will process the fat and eliminate these dead cells. Once these treated fat cells are gone, they are gone forever.
Get Rid of Stubborn Fat the Cool Way with CoolSculpting®
