What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a unique, FDA cleared, non-surgical treatment that is designed to reduce specific fat pockets in a gentle and effective manner. The CoolSculpting treatment involves advanced fat freezing technology that targets selected fat bulges. It eliminates unwanted fat cells through a gradual process that causes no harm to the healthy surrounding tissue.

Patients in Austin, TX and nearby areas, who are bothered by fat pockets in the abdominal area, hips, thighs, arms, or other parts can benefit from this innovative solution under the supervision and care of an experienced dermatologist, Dr. Zimmet.

Good Candidates

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure, but it is not a weight reduction treatment. It also does not provide skin care effects such as removal of cellulite condition. Good candidates for this procedure are patients who are bothered by stubborn fat pockets that do not respond to diet or exercise.

The patient should have a moderate and stable body weight. It is important for the patient to understand that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise. Results can be prolonged when the patient continues with an active lifestyle and balanced diet after the treatment.

Procedure

The CoolSculpting procedure is completely safe and fairly simple. Among various dermatology and fat reduction treatment options available today, CoolSculpting is considered one of the most marvelous procedures with no side effects or risks. The procedure involves the use of a non-invasive applicator that is focused on the targeted areas of the skin to deliver precisely controlled cooling.

The procedure is designed to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells in specific pockets that are resistant to exercise and diet. As these unwanted fat cells are exposed to cooling, a natural disintegration of these cells begins to occur. The body’s regular metabolic process gradually removes these fat cells in the same way as fat from food is eliminated.

The result is a gradual reduction of fat deposits, and an improved contour becomes visible in most patients over a period of two to four months. The entire procedure will usually take about one hour. It does not involve any needles or incisions, and no anesthesia is needed. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and there is no downtime.

Recovery

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the patient remains comfortable and relaxed. Some patients may experience minor discomfort initially when the skin comes in contact with the cold, but the body adapts to the treatment within a few minutes. After the treatment, most patients are able to resume their everyday activities. Working patients can return to work the same day or next day. Even the regular exercise regimen can be resumed quickly after the treatment.
