On a typical hot August day in Austin everyone loves a frozen Jet Pop or Creamsicle. But your unwanted fat doesn’t want anything to do with popsicles because popsicles are how the fat-killing procedure CoolSculpting was developed.
Maybe that makes August a great time to tell your unwanted fat to chill out this summer at our Lakeway or Scottsdale offices with a CoolSculpting session.
How does CoolSculpting work?
In a CoolSculpting session, a member of our team positions the CoolSculpting panels over the treatment area. The panels then deliver light suction to the skin and underlying tissue, drawing the skin and underlying fat up between two cooling panels. Next, the temperature is set to the freezing point of the fat cells, and this controlled degree of cooling is delivered into the tissue between the panels. The fat cells are crystallized and gradually die, and the body flushes them away using the lymphatic system. Once those fat cells are gone, the remaining fat cells condense into a thinner fat layer.
We repeat this process several times across the target area to cover it entirely. All in all, a session takes from one to three hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.
What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?
There’s a reason CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedure the world over — it works! Here are the benefits of CoolSculpting:
- Removes 20-25 percent of the fat in the treatment areas.
- Completely non-invasive.
- No injections. No incisions.
- During your session you can read, take a nap, watch videos, whatever.
- There is no downtime.
- There is no recovery.
- There are no reactions.
- FDA approval for eight different treatment areas.
- No danger of skin burning or damage.
- Over 6 million procedures have been done worldwide.
- Just about anyone can have CoolSculpting done.
What areas of the body can CoolSculpting be done?
The FDA has approved CoolSculpting for fat reduction on eight areas. No other non-invasive fat reduction treatment is approved for even half of these areas:
- Double chin
