Real People Testimonials
What is CoolSculpting®?
This is a “freeze the fat” treatment that uses no needles, no surgery and has no downtime. Fat cells are destroyed permanently by a process called CryoLipolysis®. How? Fat cells are cooled, without impacting surrounding tissues. Once the treated fat cells are dissolved, the body resorbs the dissolved fat, then it is eliminated naturally without any side-effects. This will occur over the next two to four months after the treatment.
Is CoolSculpting® considered a permanent fat reduction solution?
Yes. The CoolSculpting® procedure is designed to target and destroy fat cells in treated areas. Diet, exercise and other weight loss/fat loss types of programs may shrink fat cells. However, there is a possibility for the amount of fat to increase those very same fat cells due to overeating, lack of exercise, hormonal changes and other types of lifestyle shifts. CoolSculpting® destroys fat cells. The bottom line is that the body will not remake the fat cells that were destroyed and flushed out of the system with CoolSculpting®.
Can I go back to eating the way I used to after the CoolSculpting® treatment series is completed? Do I have to exercise?
Although CoolSculpting® enables fat loss, patients of Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics are encouraged to maintain proper diet and exercise during and after their treatment program in order to maximize individual results. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they are gone. Yet, your remaining fat cells may expand or shrink with diet and exercise behaviors.
Will I lose weight with CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is not really a weight loss treatment. However, it is an inch loss treatment based upon the reduction of fat. Fat is very light as compared to muscle. Have you ever noticed that one person, who seems very lean and fit, may weigh the same as someone who doesn’t work out, yet their clothing sizes may be 1 to 2 sizes apart? Fat does take up space. When fat cells are dissolved, Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics CoolSculpting® patients say their clothes fit better, pants are looser, bras dig less into the back area and self-confidence and self-esteem are boosted as a result of fat loss.
What does a CoolSculpting® treatment feel like?
Anything related to touch and feel is subjective which, in turn, dictates different responses from patient to patient. The best way to describe a level of expectation on how the experience feels is to state that each treatment and each area treated can prompt varied sensations. Typical descriptions of the sensations felt during and after CoolSculpting® treatments are:
- Light-to-mild and tolerable levels of discomfort
- Some experience tightness and cramping at the treatment site area(s).
- A numbing, stinging, itchiness or cramping at the site area(s) in the days or weeks after the treatment but nothing bothersome during the procedure.
Why choose CoolSculpting® over other fat-reduction treatments or procedures?
Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics CoolSculpting® treatment is a non-invasive, highly effective and safe procedure with no downtime. The CoolSculpting® process is natural and patients can go about their regular routine immediately after each treatment. There is no disruption to work schedules or family obligations because there is no post-procedure recovery period. Through CoolSculpting®, patients receive life-changing transformation that is visible to others through results.
Is CoolSculpting® safe?
CoolSculpting requires no needles, no incisions and is FDA cleared. The procedure destroys the targeted fat cells only and does not damage the skin or any other organs. CoolSculpting® at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics in Austin, Texas is a safe procedure.
What kind of results should I expect with CoolSculpting®?
There is a reduction in the fat layer of the treated areas within two to four months after the procedure. After the fat cells undergo a natural cell death, through CryoLipolysis® or crystallization during the actual treatment, the process of elimination from the body happens over time. Because the process is gradual, the skin has an opportunity to adjust and restore elasticity. In addition, the cold-infusion stimulates both collagen and elastin production to help tighten the skin at the treatment area(s).
What areas of the body can CoolSculpting® treat?
CoolSculpting® targets stubborn body fat in the areas that are most resistant to change: upper and lower abdomen, back fat, “bra fat,” muffin tops, love handles, inner thighs, saddlebags, man boobs, buttocks, knees, arms and double chin fat.
How do I know if I am a good candidate for the treatment?
Designed for individuals who have diet and exercise resistant fat, CoolSculpting® is ideal for those within 5 to 35 pounds of their target weight. If you are frustrated with stubborn fat and want to shed inches, CoolSculpting® may be the answer. Many individuals who fall outside of the target weight range begin with a diet and exercise plan. As they start to lose weight and get closer to the target weight range, CoolSculpting® can play an important part of the overall plan to look and feel better and boost confidence.
