CoolSculpting® in Houston, TX

Located in Cypress, Northwest EndoSurgical is introducing a new way for individuals to eliminate unwanted fat. If you are unable to get rid of stubborn fat with a healthy diet and exercise, board-certified general surgeon Dr. Matthew St. Laurent offers CoolSculpting® to his The Woodlands and Houston-area patients who want a more sculpted and toned physique.

 What Is CoolSculpting®?

Developed by Zeltiq™, CoolSculpting® is an easy, non-invasive procedure that targets and destroys fat cells. It is practically impossible to lose an annoying belly pooch or love handles even if you are following a healthy diet and exercise routine. If you find yourself in this situation, you only have two options: live with it, or undergo surgical treatment. The limited options for eliminating stubborn fat is why Zeltiq™ developed CoolSculpting®, which is FDA approved. CoolSculpting® is the only procedure that targets the fat cells alone, thereby destroying them in a minimally-invasive method that eating right and working out cannot achieve as effectively or quickly.

Benefits of CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is the ideal alternative to cosmetic procedures that are more invasive because it offers several benefits:

  • Excellent results
  • Little to no discomfort or pain
  • No downtime during recovery
  • No incisions

How Is CoolSculpting® Performed?

CoolSculpting® is a patented cooling process that kills the fat cells under your skin, freezing them until they are eliminated. The procedure only freezes the fat cells, so your healthy skin cells remain unscathed. This process is non-invasive, which means that there is no need for needles or suction hoses that could cause scarring. Once crystallized, your body eliminates the dead fat cells on its own.

At Northwest EndoSurgical, Dr. St. Laurent applies the CoolSculpting® device to the target area. During the procedure, the cooling panels pull the treatment area and cool the fat cells to a temperature just above freezing. This makes crystals form on the fat cells but leaves the healthy cells alone. The crystals kill the fat cells, and your body eventually eliminates them.CoolSculpting-Illustration-1024x289

Preparing for CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® does not require any preparation, except for ensuring that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. This is what makes the treatment so appealing.

Recovery From CoolSculpting®

Unlike other cosmetic procedures, CoolSculpting® does not take long and is simple to fit into your normal schedule. It takes one hour to treat each target area, which is about the same amount of time that you would spend at the gym. After your treatment, you can usually return to your daily activities. With a short procedure time and no downtime, you can easily fit a treatment into your lunch break.

How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?

The cost for your CoolSculpting® treatment will vary depending on many factors such as how many areas you want to target and the extent of treatment that those areas need to achieve optimum results. Dr. St. Laurent can discuss this cost and your payment options during your consultation. We accept financing through CareCredit®, United Medical Credit, and American Healthcare Lending as well as cash, checks, and major credit cards.

Is CoolSculpting® Right for Me?
