Eight Interesting Facts about CoolSculpting


Do you wish you could rid yourself of stubborn fat that hangs out from underneath your clothing? While going to the gym every day and focusing on your diet, could provide some benefits, it may not be enough to uproot frustrating pockets of fat that simply won’t go away no matter what you try. Innovative advancements in cosmetic treatments are now able to give you the same, if not better and faster results than the tried and true methods to get rid of unwanted fat. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive body sculpting treatment that freezes fat cells allowing them to dissolve, liquefy, and leave the body. The result is a more toned and slimmer body.

Despite their best efforts, men and women in Dallas, TX who are frustrated by the appearance of stubborn fat have warmed up to the idea of having a nonsurgical option to eliminate fat in certain targeted areas. At ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, we offer CoolSculpting, a fantastic, noninvasive alternative to traditional liposuction that may be completed in about an hour and features zero downtime or recovery. The treatment itself is simple. A gel is applied to the skin, and the CoolSculpting device is applied to the targeted treatment area using a vacuum-type motion that sucks the tissue area as it performs its magic. Under the guidance of the expert team at ZO Skin Centre controlled cooling is used to eliminate the targeted areas of fat, leaving sculpted results in its wake.

If you are considering a CoolSculpting procedure, here are eight interesting facts that may help determine if this is the right treatment for you.

1. It was discovered by accident.

Two scientists observed some children eating popsicles and noted that their cheeks began to dimple due to the coldness. The observation led to the idea that the cool temperature of the popsicles was freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells inside the cheeks. This scenario is where the discovery was made that fatty tissue is sensitive to freezing and may be reduced under these temperatures.

2. Same effects as liposuction minus the surgery.

CoolSculpting offers many of the same benefits as liposuction, but without surgery. This nonsurgical fat removal procedure uses the freezing theory to eliminate stubborn fat without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. CoolSculpting is a fantastic in-office alternative to liposuction that does not require general anesthesia, left behind scars, or potential tissue damage.

3. It can reduce fat by up to 25%

This procedure enjoys a reputation for incredible fat reduction. Men and women can enjoy the fantastic results of CoolSculpting fat reduction often up to 20% or beyond. CoolSculpting remains one of the most popular choices among Dallas area men and women seeking an alternative to liposuction.

4. No downtime

No downtime in a cosmetic procedure is always a bonus. Patients may resume their normal day’s activities after completing CoolSculpting. This procedure is nonsurgical, so there is no anesthesia used, meaning no downtime. Also, time off of work is not necessary for the body to heal. It is not uncommon to experience some tingling, numbness, and redness in the areas of treatment, but this typically goes away within the first 24 hours.

5. Works for both men and women

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are men and women who are close to their ideal body weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting should not be used as a weight-loss treatment. It only removes stubborn fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. While CoolSculpting can treat many areas of stubborn fat, it may be suitable for only certain parts of the body. The medical staff at ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX will assess if you are the right candidate for this treatment and if your aesthetic goals can be met.

6. Technology makes it safe and effective

The smart technology of CoolSculpting allows this procedure to target only isolated fat cells. Unlike liposuction, there is little risk of damage to surrounding tissue. FDA-approved, CoolSculpting is the only nonsurgical fat reduction/freezing that enjoys this title. This procedure is safe and effective for fat removal and has been thoroughly researched in multiple clinical studies.

7. Results are quick

Following treatment, the liquified fat cells take some time to exit the body naturally. On average, this process may take anywhere from 1-2 months for the body to process the dissolved fat and remove it from the body. Once the frozen fat cells are eliminated, results are most often noticeable in about two to four months following treatment.

8. Can treat multiple areas of the body

CoolSculpting can treat various areas of the body where stubborn fat is present. Some of the most commonly treated areas include the stomach, thighs, knees, upper arms, and chin. ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX offers DualSculpting for our patients who would like to have more than one problem area treated at the same time.
