Stubborn pockets or areas of fatty tissue can be impossible to remove from the body. While diet can reduce fat deposits over the entire body and exercise can help to tone the physique, there is no way to remove fat from just one selected area of the body.
For women and men in Austin looking for a solution to these areas, CoolSculpting offers an easy, effective and non-invasive way to literally freeze away fat cells. It is done in the comfort of your doctor’s office, and there is no need for sedation or even the use of local anesthesia. Most people can plan these treatments over lunch or take an afternoon off if the treatment area is more significant or more than one procedure is being completed.
How It Works
CoolSculpting is completed by a specialized machine that is placed over the area to be treated. This device provides a controlled amount of cooling to the skin and the underlying fat tissues. Due to the different chemical and physical properties of the fat cells, they quickly free and crystallize, causing the cell to die.
In the days and weeks after the process, these fat cells break down into organic materials that are absorbed into the body, just as normal cell death occurs in all organs and tissues.
The result of the CoolSculpting procedure is the fat cells are eliminated completely. They do not regenerate, which makes it a long-lasting way to smooth and streamlined those difficult areas of the body. Most patients can expect the treatment to last about a half an hour to an hour, with some people having slight discomfort from the cold and others having itching sensation in the treated area after the procedure.
Most patients in Austin can expect to see about 20% fat reduction per treatment, with the first treatment usually producing the most dramatic results after two to three weeks.
