What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that has zero downtime. Our licensed team at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics does this right in our office. Stubborn fat that has not responded to diet and exercise permanently, is cooled to a point where up to 25% of fat cells in the treated area are permanently destroyed. 

With our CoolSculpting machine, Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetoics uses controlled cooling that targets fat cells, damaging their integrity without hurting your skin or surrounding tissues.

Using the CoolSculpting machine, we can treat unwanted fat in a variety of areas, including:

  • Abdomen

  • Under your chin

  • Outer and inner thighs

  • Love handles

  • Upper arms

  • Under your buttocks

  • Across your back

How does CoolSculpting work?

When you visit Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics for body contouring, we develop a customized treatment plan to address your specific trouble areas. During your first treatment, we will select the appropriately sized CoolSculpting applicator, and then place a gel pad on your skin for protection.

Using the applicator, the selected treatment area is vacuumed into the machine's hollow chamber, where the temperature drops, numbing the area and freezing your fat cells. Depending on your needs, we may treat more than one area during your session — each area takes about 35 minutes.

Once done, the machine automatically turns off, and our licensed medical aesthetician, Kayla Morrison, will remove the applicator and massage the area. This breaks up the crystallized fat cells, making it easier for your body to remove them.

Because the cells become crystallized, their integrity is damaged, and they eventually die. Once this happens, the body naturally processes and eliminates these cells, reducing the number of fat cells in the targeted treatment area.

When do you see results from CoolSculpting?

On average, it takes about three weeks to begin seeing the results from your CoolSculpting procedure. In two months, you reach the maximum benefit.

As long as you maintain your current weight, the results should last, since the fat cells destroyed during the procedure don’t grow back. If you do gain weight, you will typically gain less fat in the treated areas than in the areas of your body that haven’t been treated with CoolSculpting.

Depending on your needs, a member of our certified CoolSculpting technicians may recommend multiple treatment sessions to get the results you’re looking for.
