This cutting-edge procedure offers permanent results, is non-invasive, involves no anesthesia and does not require a recovery period. Available by Dr. Matthew St. Laurent at Northwest EndoSurgical, CoolSculpting® is a convenient means of targeted fat reduction.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to reduce fat in the body. In essence, this procedure freezes fat on the body using controlled cooling devices. These devices and their cooling bring no harm to skin, muscle and other tissues during treatment.
Thighs, love handles, arms and the abdomen are commonly treated using CoolSculpting® for people in Cypress, Houston, TX. Over 425,000 patients receive CoolSculpting® fat reduction each year, and this number is rapidly increasing due to the quality of its results and the treatment’s convenience.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is extremely popular due to its non-surgical approach. Patients are able to gain permanent fat reduction after spending just an hour with Dr. Matthew St. Laurent at Northwest EndoSurgical. This is without anesthesia, pain, bruising, swelling or any required downtime after the procedure. In fact, many patients undergo treatment during their lunch break and return to work at the session’s end.
How is CoolSculpting® Performed?
CoolSculpting® is very convenient when compared to other methods of fat reduction. Patients are able to schedule an hour-long treatment at Northwest EndoSurgical at a time which suits their schedule. They may return to daily life, work or other activities immediately following the procedure.
For treatment, the CoolSculpting® device is placed on the part of the body to be treated for fat reduction. While patients read, plays games on their smartphone, works on their iPad or otherwise distracts themselves, the device freezes targeted fat using controlled cooling. There may be some tingling or numbness at the site of treatment, but there is no pain or major discomfort. At the end of treatment, the patient can return to normal activities.
Frozen fat is targeted by the body’s immune system following CoolSculpting®. Over the course of about three months, the body works to break down the crystallized fat and flushes it as waste. Once fat has been frozen and subsequently flushed from the body, no new fat will replace it. Results of CoolSculpting® are permanent, provided the patient maintains a healthy diet and fitness routine.
