Fat Loss with Coolsculpting
CoolSculpting in Houston – What You Need to Know
According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which is conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, 2 out of 3 Americans are overweight. Many of these people simply can’t shed the pounds with diet and exercise, no matter how hard they try. CoolSculpting was developed by two scientists in the 1970’s as a way to remove fat cells in the treatment area by freezing fat cells to death. The scientific name for the process is Cryolipolysis.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat layers that refuse to come off with diet and exercise. Controlled cooling is delivered with the patented CoolSculpting device, which crystallizes, and then freezes, fat cells to death. Then, the body naturally cycles out the dead fat cells within a few weeks. You can achieve up to 20 percent fat reduction in the targeted area after just one session!
Are CoolSculpting Results Permanent?
The results are long-term because the fat layer removed is under the skin, which means it is much harder to put back on than fat burned off at the gym. As long as you make the right lifestyle changes, the results can be permanent.
The only catch is CoolSculpting only works on the targeted area. You will only lose fat in your thighs if you had CoolSculpting thigh treatment. You will need additional CoolSculpting neck treatment to lose your double chin.
Is CoolSculpting Painful?
It’s a virtually painless non-invasive procedure. There are no needles, surgical tools, or medications involved. You can get CoolSculpting for areas of the body like your butt, stomach, thighs, or arms. The body areas you choose and the amount of fat in each area determine how many sessions you’ll need to get the results you want.
Each session takes about an hour and there are minimal post-session side effects. Most people only experience a mild tenderness or redness at the spot of treatment. The expertise of our med spa staff keeps the possibility of side effects to a minimum.
You are a good candidate if any of the following body issues make you self-conscious:
- Love handles
- Inner and outer thigh fat
- Muffin tops
- Belly and bra fat
- Upper arm fat
- Double chin
CoolSculpting is Right for You If…
