Changing your body with diet and exercise can be a very difficult process. It’s common to have pockets of unwanted fat on your stomach, thighs, and other areas of your body that don’t respond well to lifestyle changes. Fortunately, you can target these frustrating fat deposits in a non-invasive manner with CoolSculpting. At Grace Medical Aesthetics in Baytown, Texas, we can use this wonderful body contouring technique to give you an attractive new look.
How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Do You Need?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that uses powerful cooling technology to reduce fat on targeted locations on your body. The number of treatment sessions that you need will depend on a variety of factors, including the amount of fat that you would like to remove, the number of fat deposits that you are targeting, and how your body responds to the treatment.
If you are targeting a small amount of fat on one location on your body, you might achieve your desired outcome after you receive a single treatment session. If you are targeting larger fat deposits in multiple locations, you will need to receive a series of treatment sessions. During your initial consultation, we will examine your body and talk about your desired improvements. At that point, we will develop a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs.
Other FAQ About CoolSculpting
Why Am I Having a Hard Time Reducing My Unwanted Fat on My Own?
You should not feel disappointed or surprised if you cannot reduce your unwanted fat with diet and exercise programs. There are a number of reasons why you may be struggling to deal with these fat deposits by yourself.
Your genes can prevent you from losing unwanted fat in certain locations on your body. Your genes influence how fat is distributed throughout your body. For instance, your genes might cause you to store excess fat in your abdomen, thighs, or other locations. These genetically-influenced fat deposits will be resistant to lifestyle changes. As a result, you will struggle to change these areas of your body by dieting and exercising.
Your Fat Cells
The behavior of your fat cells also makes it difficult to sculpt and contour your body. Your overall number of fat cells is largely set during your childhood and adolescence. When you eat better and exercise, your fat cells will shrink in size. This change will make your body appear slimmer and more contoured.
However, your body will not remove unwanted fat cells, and the total number of these cells will remain consistent. If you stop following a healthy lifestyle, your existing fat cells will quickly increase in size, and your body will look less slim and fit.
You probably already know that reducing your unwanted fat becomes more difficult as you get older. When you are young, you have a fast metabolism that prevents you from gaining unwanted fat. Further, you have more time and energy to engage in a regular exercise routine. As you age, your metabolism will slow down, and you will lose muscle mass. You will also become more prone to injuries that prevent you from exercising. These changes will increase your chances of gaining unwanted fat over time.
If you’re tired of spending hours in the gym without seeing changes in your body, don’t worry. This innovative fat reduction method can address stubborn pockets of fat that haven’t responded to lifestyle changes. Even better, this treatment will permanently remove fat cells from your target area.
How Does This Treatment Reduce My Unwanted Fat?
This treatment uses a state-of-the-art cooling process to sculpt your body in an easy, non-invasive manner. Your fat cells freeze at a lower temperature than many other cells in your body. As a result, this treatment can freeze your fat cells without harming the other tissues in your target area.
During your treatment, we will use a sophisticated system to lower the temperature of the fat cells in your desired location. As this system cools your target area, your fat cells will freeze and die. In the days and weeks after your treatment session, your body will remove these dead cells from your treatment area. Once your body has eliminated these dead cells, your target area will appear to be slimmer and more contoured.
What Areas of My Body Can This Treatment Improve?
This body contouring technique can target unwanted fat in many different areas of your body. For instance, we can use this technology to reduce fat on your back, thighs, and arms. We can also remove fat from your abdomen, flanks, and buttocks.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
This treatment is one of the gentlest body contouring options, and you won’t receive incisions, injections, or general anesthesia during your appointment. Instead, this treatment will improve your body in a non-invasive manner. We will begin your treatment by holding a specialized cooling device against the skin in your target area. This device will administer ultra-cooling energy that will pass through your skin’s surface. The energy will lower the temperature of your fat cells and cause them to freeze.
We will use a sophisticated temperature control mechanism to protect your safety throughout this process. This mechanism will ensure that the cooling process does not damage the tissues in your treatment area. This technique will also help you feel comfortable as we cool your unwanted fat. You can read a book, listen to music, or simply relax during this process.
What Will My Recovery Period Be Like?
Since this treatment is completely non-invasive, you will not need to take days or weeks off from your job, childcare responsibilities, and other activities. Instead, you will be able to immediately return to your usual routine.
Will I Feel Uncomfortable While My Body Eliminates My Dead Fat Cells?
If you’ve never received this treatment before, you might worry that you will feel uncomfortable while your body processes your frozen fat cells. Fortunately, you will feel normal during this part of your treatment. Your body uses natural methods to remove your dead fat cells, and this process will occur very gradually over a period of many weeks. You can go to your office, exercise, and engage in your other usual activities while your body slowly removes your unwanted fat.
When Will I See Changes in My Body?
Although this treatment is very effective, it does not provide immediate results. Your body will take time to process your dead fat cells, and your appearance will improve gradually. Since your body is unique, you may metabolize these cells more or less quickly than other people do. That said, you are likely to see changes in your body after one to three months. You may see the full effect of your treatment after six months.
Will My Results Be Permanent?
This treatment will provide long-lasting results. This treatment destroys fat cells in your target area, and your body will not regrow these specific cells. That said, this treatment does not eliminate all of the fall cells in your body, and you can still gain weight after your treatment is complete. If you adopt an unhealthy lifestyle in the future, your weight gain will probably be distributed evenly throughout your body.
You can preserve the benefits of your cooling treatment by adopting a balanced, healthy lifestyle. In fact, seeing your slimmer, contoured body is likely to encourage you to eat better and exercise regularly.
Will the Changes in My Body Look Natural?
Some fat reduction methods do not provide natural-looking results. These procedures will cause you to lose unwanted fat in a very quick manner, and people will be likely to realize that you’ve used a cosmetic technique to change your body.
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about this issue when you use this cooling technique to sculpt your body. Unlike those procedures, this fat reduction treatment does not create immediate changes in your body. Instead of experiencing a dramatic change in your appearance, you will lose your unwanted fat gradually over a period of several months.
The gradual changes in your body will be subtle and natural-looking. People are likely to believe that you changed your diet or exercise program. You don’t have to tell your friends, co-workers, and family members that you had a cosmetic treatment.
Can This Treatment Help Me Lose Weight?
Although this treatment will contour and shape your body, it is not intended to be used as a weight-loss method. Rather than reducing your weight, this treatment removes fat cells from targeted locations on your body.
If you would like to lose weight, you might benefit from one of our medically supervised weight-loss programs. At Grace Medical Aesthetics, we offer a variety of plans that can help you lose weight in a safe, healthy manner. These plans include many benefits, such as coaching, meal plans, and weekly weigh-ins. Further, we provide benefits that help you engage in regular exercise, including fitness checks, exercise classes, and certified trainers.
Is This Treatment Effective?
If you’ve received body contouring treatments in the past, you probably already know that some treatments will not change your body in a noticeable way. In fact, many treatments can be expensive, uncomfortable, and ineffective.
CoolSculpting is different. Scientific evidence shows that this revolutionary technique is an effective way to remove unwanted fat. For instance, there is evidence demonstrating that a single treatment can reduce up to twenty to twenty-five percent of the fat cells in a targeted location of the body. Further, according to market research, seventy-nine percent of people who received this treatment said that they noticed a positive change in the way that their clothes fit.
Am I Eligible for This Treatment?
If you are a healthy adult who has fat deposits that haven’t responded to lifestyle changes, you are likely to be eligible for this body contouring method.
Although this treatment has an excellent safety profile, it is not a suitable option for everyone. In particular, you cannot use this treatment if you have cold agglutinin disease, cryoglobulinemia, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
Other health conditions can also prevent you from receiving this treatment. During your initial meeting with us, we will examine your body and talk about your health. At this point, you should inform us about any pre-existing health conditions. For instance, you should let us know if you have received any invasive procedures or if you have a pre-existing hernia. You should also inform us about any allergies or sensitivities that you have.
