Freeze Away Fat with Cool Sculpting Treatments
At Houston Dermatology Associates, our team knows how important it is for patients to both look and feel their absolute best. Individuals with stubborn areas of unwanted body fat that are not responding to traditional diet and exercise will want to book a consultation visit with our team of professionals to find out if they are a good candidate for a noninvasive fat removal treatment known as CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting treatment is a noninvasive fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat cells from targeted areas of the body. This fat-freezing treatment can be used on multiple body parts, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, chin, and back.
How long does it take to see changes?
CoolSculpting results can be seen as soon as three weeks after treatment, with continued improvement over the next few months, as the body works to eliminate the frozen fat cells from the body naturally.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
Coolsculpting is perfectly safe. In fact, it is FDA-cleared and has been shown to be safe and noticeably effective in clinical studies.
What are some possible side effects of CoolSculpting?
Some common side effects include temporary numbness, redness, and swelling at the treatment site. Rare side effects include paradoxical hypertrophy.
Can CoolSculpting help me lose weight?
CoolSculpting treatment is not a weight loss solution but instead a way to target specific problem areas for improved body contouring. While it can reduce fat and may cause the loss of a few pounds, it should not be used only for weight control. In fact, the best candidates for CoolSculpting treatments are patients who are already within their ideal weight range and want to target specific areas of stubborn fat.
