At Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics, David A. Bushore, MD and his team understand how frustrating it can be to get rid of areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. To battle back against these pockets of fat, our Medical Aesthetician, Olivia Berry, offers innovative CoolSculpting® treatments.
CoolSculpting is a safe, effective treatment for addressing unwanted fat without invasive procedures. This treatment is ideal for men and women who want long-term results but aren’t interested in the risks associated with surgery.
Why you have fat pockets that won’t go away
As you get older, your body changes how it stores fat. This results in areas of your body where pockets of fat develop, which are impossible to lose even with a good diet and exercise plan. Stubborn fat most notably builds up in areas of your body like your:
- Upper arms
- Under the buttocks
Your heredity and your hormones all play a role in how fat is distributed. When it becomes difficult to lose this fat, your self-esteem and your satisfaction with your appearance may start to decline.
In the past, the only way to address unwanted fat was to undergo invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Fortunately, modern technology is so advanced that you can address unwanted body fat in just a few minutes with the CoolSculpting system. There’s no need for anesthesia, and you won’t need a single incision to finally get rid of belly fat and other stubborn fatty deposits.
The noninvasive power of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting uses freezing technology that specifically targets stubborn fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. Our Medical Aesthetician, Olivia Berry, applies the CoolSculpting applicator to the treatment area.
Without harming your skin or surrounding tissue, the CoolSculpting system delivers freezing energy to the areas where the unwanted fat resides. The energy freezes the fat cells, destroying their structure. Then, over time, your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells.
CoolSculpting results are worth the wait
The results of CoolSculpting aren’t immediate, but as soon as you’re treated, your body will begin breaking down and eliminating the destroyed fat cells. In as soon as 4-6 weeks, you can see a noticeable slimming of the treated area.
You should be able to see optimal results within 12 weeks of your procedure. As long as you continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet, you shouldn’t have to worry about new fat deposits developing in the treatment areas.
To further boost your appearance, you can add other nonsurgical treatments, such as Kybella® to destroy under-chin fat, and Botox® and chemical peels to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines.
