Coolsculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also called “fat freezing,” reduces fat cells through controlled cooling. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this noninvasive procedure requires little-to-no downtime and is conveniently completed right in the Houston office.

CoolSculpting works by precisely targeting and freezing your unwanted fat cells. The frozen cells die, and your body eliminates them through its normal body processes. The FDA cleared CoolSculpting for use on the following trouble spots:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles or muffin top
  • Double chin
  • Inner thigh
  • Outer thigh
  • Upper arm

What should you expect during the procedure?

During a CoolSculpting procedure, Medical Assistant Myriam Lopez uses a machine featuring two panels that she places on your treatment area. These panels deliver targeted, intense cold to the fat cells without damaging your skin or the surrounding tissue.

You may notice a suction sensation as the CoolSculpting device gently sucks in your skin to cool the targeted treatment area. When the treatment first begins, you also may experience an extreme cooling sensation. This causes no discomfort and decreases as the treatment progresses.

During the treatment, as long as you don’t disturb the panels, you can pass the time doing like you can read, play on your phone, or take a nap. Most CoolSculpting treatments take between 35-60 minutes.

What results can you expect from CoolSculpting treatments?

Coolsculpt treatments can yield impressive results, especially when you maintain your current weight. As long as you don’t gain extra pounds, the results of your body contouring procedure remain permanent, giving you a leaner, slimmer, and smoother profile.

CoolSculpting treatments freeze your fat cells, damages their integrity, and cause their death. Once they die, your body removes the fat cells and, unlike other cells, doesn’t replace them. This process takes time: Your results start to emerge in about three weeks and reach maximum benefit after four to six months.

Because your fat cells aren’t replaced, you enjoy permanent fat removal. If you do gain weight, the fat cells that remain get larger, as do the rest of the fat cells in your body.

When your stubborn fat resists change, even with diet and exercise, schedule a consultation at Vintage Wellness. Call the office today or go online to book your appointment and be one step closer to the body you’ve always wanted.
