CoolSculpting® for people in Pearland, TX is an effective means of fat reduction without surgery. Performed by Dr. Matthew St. Laurent of Northwest EndoSurgical, this non-invasive procedure provides patients with a more contoured body and lasting fat loss without anesthesia, incisions or recovery time required of liposuction.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a freezing and subsequent treatment of fat using devices placed on the outside of the body. The procedure was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2010 and has since been used for fat reduction by over 425,000 patients annually. Rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures, CoolSculpting® is an effective means of losing unwanted fat in areas not easily improved by weight loss or physical fitness. Such areas include the arms, hips, abdomen and thighs.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® results in lasting fat reduction on areas of the body where weight loss can be difficult to achieve. Usually performed on healthy adults within the normal weight range for their height, CoolSculpting® can be used on the hips, also known as the flanks. This is an area particularly resistant to exercise and dieting. Other areas include upper arms, thighs, and abdomen.
Beyond the ability to target unwanted fat, CoolSculpting® offers additional benefits. These advantages include its non-invasive approach, absence of need for anesthesia, painless performance and immediate return to daily activities following the procedure. Patients can have CoolSculpting® performed in about an hour and in most cases gain maximum benefit from only one or two sessions. Finally, CoolSculpting® is cost-effective with a significantly lower cost than liposuction.
How is CoolSculpting® Performed?
CoolSculpting® for patients in Pearland, TX is performed in about an hour. The patient settles into a comfortable position and can enjoy reading or watching a movie while the procedure is conducted.
CoolSculpting® devices which deliver controlled cooling to the body are placed on areas where treatment is desired. Those devices then deliver fat freezing temperature for 45 minutes or longer. At the end of that time, a gentle massage is applied to the treated area to restore normal blood flow. The patient is then able to go on with his or her daily routine.
Within about 12 weeks, frozen fat will be flushed by the body. This occurs after the immune system has targeted dead fat cells for reduction to lipids and then transported those lipids to the digestive system as waste. At this three month point, the patient will notice reduced fat in the treated areas and a more contoured physique.
