ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX offers men and women a new way to a slimmer figure with nonsurigical body contouring through the advanced CoolSculpting technology. This procedure is performed right inside our treatment room, with little to no discomfort, and with amazing results. Cryolipolysis, the science behind CoolSculpting works to expose fat cells to a method of controlled cooling, which freezes cells and causes them to die. The body then eliminates the destroyed cells through a natural elimination process. CoolSculpting has become a preferred fat reduction treatment because of its known safety and precision. During this procedure, the surrounding skin and tissue are not affected. Our team recommends this treatment for problematic areas that exist around the abdomen, flanks, lower back, and thighs. Some patients may require more than one treatment, with optimal results showing in about 2 – 4 months.
During the Procedure
During a CoolSculpting treatment session, patients are made to feel comfortable. They will feel slight pressure followed by coolness and then warmth in the areas being addressed. Our licensed practitioner will place the cooling device on the designated area of the body where the fat is to be removed. The device will slowly move across the region that is being treated, pulling the fat pocket and tissue upwards between the cooling panels. The freezing process occurs at this times, working to eradicate the fat cells. Most treatment sessions take about an hour and patients can resume their normal activities right after. There may be some tingling, numbness, and redness in the areas of treatment, but this subsides within the first 24 hours.
We can also offer you a time-saving "DualSculpting" at The ZO Skin Centre when you have a CoolSculpting treatment. This means that you can have two services at a time with two CoolSculpting machines treating multiple sides at once. Instead of spending double the treatment time for both hips (for example), we can run two machines on the left and right hip at the same time.
Yes. Studies have shown that with one CoolSculpting treatment, patients experienced a 20% reduction in fat after two months and a 25% reduction in fat after 6 months. Cryolipolysis has extensive research and years of studies behind the technology and can only be performed by trained, lisenced professionals. CoolSculpting is a patented technology tested and refined and now available worldwide.
How Safe Is It?
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to reduce fat. It is a noninvasive procedure approved by the FDA. It is only applied to the skin's surface, so there is no need for sutures, downtime, or a lengthy recovery. There may be some slight swelling that could last for a week, but patients generally do not have any side effects from this treatment. The targeted fat cells are ‘frozen to death’ and the fat is broken down by the body and released in its natural process.
Will the fat return?
While it is important to adhere to a healthy lifestyle and diet to maintain and optimize your slimming results, the treated fat cells (once eliminated) cannot regenerate. However, new fat cells can form, just like with any body part, if diet and exercise are not incorporated into your lifestyle.
Number of Treatments?
This depends. Multiple treatments may be recommended for those who have thicker layers of fat in the target areas. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, the doctor may recommend one full treatment up to a number of treatments spanning a few months.
