As people invest more time and energy in their health and body goals, newer and more advanced technologies are being used to meet our needs. Whether you adhere to a strict diet to maintain your curves or head to the gym on a regular basis, you may discover there are some stubborn areas that refuse to slim down. CoolSculpting treatment features a one-of-a-kind technique that freezes and eliminates fat cells to remove areas of body fat. The professionals at ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, are here to explain how to achieve your dream body with the help of CoolSculpting.
Unlike many invasive plastic surgeries, CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment that doesn’t involve incisions, scarring, or extensive downtime. Results are achieved through the process of cryolipolysis, which exposes the fat cells to controlled cooling, causing them to die. CoolSculpting is a preferred treatment due to its precision, targeting only the problematic areas and leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. The body then naturally eliminates the destroyed cells painlessly and effortlessly.
The CoolSculpting process
ZO Skin Centre is a certified medical facility for CoolSculpting in Dallas. We take the time to help patients understand the CoolSculpting treatment and what it entails. During your private consultation, we will assess the problem areas, such as the abdomen, flanks, lower back, and thighs, and create a personalized treatment plan just for you. During this time, we encourage you to bring up any questions or concerns you have about body contouring without surgery. This method is noninvasive and FDA-cleared to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
During your session, you will be taken into one of our comfortable treatment rooms. A licensed practitioner will ready the cooling device and help you get prepared. When we begin, you will feel some slight pressure, followed by coolness and warmth in the treated areas. We will continue to move the device to pull pockets of fat and tissue upward between the panels, where the freezing process occurs. Most sessions take about an hour, so we ask you to plan accordingly around your schedule. You can resume your day as normal right after your treatment.
Would you like more than one area treated at the same time? ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, offers patients a "DualSculpting" session at our office. This means that you can receive services using two CoolSculpting machines simultaneously. DualSculpting allows our staff to treat multiple areas in one time-saving appointment. For example, we can provide body contouring for the left hip and right hip simultaneously. To learn more about DualSculpting, we encourage you to reach out to ZO Skin Centre.
Does CoolSculpting really work?
In short, yes. Clinical studies have shown a 20% reduction in fat two months after a single CoolSculpting treatment, and a 25% reduction in fat after six months. Since CoolSculpting is not meant to be a weight loss alternative, patients are encouraged to maintain their new appearance with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Additional benefits include:
Body contouring without surgery
No downtime or recovery
Results that are long-lasting
Is CoolSculpting safe?
The process of cryolipolysis used in CoolSculpting has been extensively studied and refined. It is noninvasive and approved by the FDA for treating pockets of fat in several areas of the body. For the safest results, please make sure that your CoolSculpting session is performed by a trained and licensed professional, such as the experts at ZO Skin Centre.
What are the side effects of treatment?
The CoolSculpting applicator is only applied to the surface of the skin, so there is no lengthy recovery involved. Targeted fat cells are frozen, then broken down and released naturally by your own body. After your appointment, you may experience some tingling, numbness, or redness in the treated areas that will subside in about 24 hours.
Will the fat come back?
Once the cells are eliminated, they cannot return. However, it is possible for new fat cells to form. CoolSculpting was designed for individuals who are at or near their goal weight and have small pockets of stubborn fat. As long as you stay healthy, you should be able to maintain your wonderful results.
How many treatments do I need?
It depends on your cosmetic goals. Some patients are satisfied with their results after one treatment. Others require more than one, with their final outcome showing in about 2 – 4 months. Multiple treatments are suggested for people with thicker layers of fat in the target areas. One treatment results in a 20 – 25% fat loss, so the problem area will shrink with each session.
