I live in LA and my sagos went through a freeze. Is there any help for them? Should I prune and hope new ones will grow?

Wait until spring to cut back the plant to help protect the new growth in case another freeze occurs. Remove only the yellow and brown fronds in the spring as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will help you as well:
