As our climate starts to heat up, many of us are thinking about how we want to look once shorts and bathing suit weather rolls around. Sometimes, that season comes sooner than we imagined it would and we’re caught unprepared. Don’t let that happen to you. If you keep thinking that your diet and exercise will finally pay off, after it’s proven to be relatively disappointing in the past, maybe now is the time to try a new approach. Maybe to get the hot body that you want and deserve, you need to consider CoolSculpting! We love performing CoolSculpting treatments. In fact, since we became one of the first practices in San Antonio to offer this procedure, we’ve performed thousands of them. We know why patients love their CoolSculpting experience. Here, we’ll share some of those reasons with you.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting is designed around a newer concept called cryolipolysis. Researchers had discovered that cold temperatures, freezing, to be exact, could cause irreparable damage to fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissue. This exciting finding led to the development of the CoolSculpting device and a fat-freezing treatment that sculpts bodies in an hour or less. Using our innovative technologies and multiple CoolSculpting devices, our team can treat more than one area at once without additional time spent in the office. During the brief appointment, patients read, listen to music, and sometimes doze off. This tells you how comfortable treatment actually is. To destroy unwanted fat, our expert CoolSculpting provider applies the applicator to the selected area or areas. In just over half an hour, these areas are chilled to the precise temperature at which crystals will form in the fat cells. The crystals damage the cell membrane, signaling the body that the affected cells are nonviable. The body responds by flushing them through the lymph system. What is exciting about this process is that the cells are gone forever. This is no different than liposuction in terms of results but much different in terms of process. After CoolSculpting, patients may start to see changes in the shape of their bodies in just two to three weeks. However, the fat-flushing process continues for up to 12 weeks, offering ongoing, rewarding transformation.
Three Reasons to Choose CoolSculpting
We stated that we have performed over 2,000 CoolSculpting treatments in our San Antonio office. Worldwide, over seven million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed. Some of the reasons this fat-freezing treatment is so hot include:
- Treatments are comfortable and easy. To get CoolSculpting, all you need to do is make an appointment and select a comfortable outfit to wear to your appointment. You also want to make sure you are drinking plenty of water before and throughout your treatment process to help facilitate the elimination of fat cells. After your appointment, you can go right back to your day as usual. We schedule early appointments and lunchtime appointments, knowing that patients won’t have to worry about downtime.
- No incisions, no anesthesia. CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive. This is why there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Without incisions, patients also don’t have to worry about scarring.
- CoolSculpting is versatile. When the CoolSculpting device was first cleared for cosmetic use, its scope of treatment was very limited. Since that time, it has gained FDA clearance to treat a wide variety of areas. These include the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, rolls below the buttocks, back and bra areas, upper arms, and the submental area.
