CoolSculpting®

what is coolsculpting

When trying to lose weight and shed the body of unwanted fat deposits, many people follow various diet and exercise regimens. While the common form of losing weight through a healthy lifestyle is effective for some people, it is not suitable for everyone. To effectively get rid of stubborn fat deposits, CoolSculpting® has proven to be an effective cosmetic treatment. At our Sugar Land practice, we offer this innovative procedure for men and women of all ages.

What is CoolSculpting®?

Approved by the FDA, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that applies extreme cooling energy to the skin to permanently eliminate fat deposits. By utilizing an innovative technology known as Cryolipolysis™, stubborn fat cells are literally frozen and disposed of through the body’s natural metabolic process. Unlike weight loss that only decreases the size of the fat cells, CoolSculpting® decreases the number of fat cells. Once these fat cells are gone, they’re gone forever!

CoolSculpting® can effectively improve the following areas of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist (love handles)
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Benefits of CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® also offers other advantages over other invasive body contouring procedures, like liposuction. These benefits include:

  • No downtime
  • No anesthesia
  • No incisions
  • Virtually no pain

Ideal Candidates

CoolSculpting® can be performed on individuals who are relatively fit and have no serious medical conditions. Candidates for this procedure have certain areas on their body where stubborn fat deposits exist and are realistic about the outcome of the procedure.

CoolSculpting® is not intended to be a weight loss procedure.

The Procedure

CoolSculpting® is performed in our state-of-the art office and usually takes one hour per area to complete. A device with a suction applicator is applied directly to areas on the skin where excess fat tissue is present. After the skin is vacuumed up between the specially designed panels of the CoolSculpting® device, cold air is applied to destroy the fat cells through freezing. After the applicator is removed, the area treated must then be massaged to further destroy the fat cells.

Recovery

Once the CoolSculpting® procedure is complete, the area(s) of treatment may appear slightly red and swollen temporarily, but these symptoms will fade over the next few days. In most instances, individuals can return to work and resume their daily routine immediately after the procedure.

Results

Due to swelling after treatment, the results will not immediately exist after the CoolSculpting® procedure. However, over the next couple of months, patients can expect their body to become noticeably slimmer and more contoured. Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle will help ensure your results are long lasting.
