About CoolSculpting

As a nonsurgical alternative to traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting is a breakthrough technology that has rapidly increased in popularity. Cooling technology is used to target and eliminate fat in a patient’s problem areas. This technology is especially useful for fat that has been resistant to exercise and diet. The principle behind CoolSculpting is cryolipolysis, or cold lipolysis, which uses a precise form of controlled cooling to get rid of fat. The system targets, freezes, and kills fat cells in the treated areas and then the body removes these cells through a natural elimination process. Dr. Matthew Barrows and the medical professionals at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Surgery Center's several North Texas office offers the Zeltiq CoolSculpting method, which is highly effective and FDA-approved to be safe with little to no downtime. With such a long swimsuit season, patients in Allen, McKinney, Rockwall, and other Dallas areas should consider CoolSculpting to help them banish any stubborn spots for a slimmer physique.

Best Candidates

It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a viable solution for weight loss in overweight or obese patients. It is instead a fat-reduction procedure recommended for those at an average and healthy weight who have isolated pockets, or bulges of fat that have proven to be resistant in the past. Patients should have relatively healthy skin tone without loose and hanging skin.

During the Procedure

During a CoolSculpting procedure, a patient can expect to experience intense cold and pressure in the targeted area, but this dissipates quickly. The CoolSculpting device is placed on the area of fat where it will draw up the unwanted bulge in between the device’s two cooling panels. The sensation is comparable to a firm pull, but there should be no pain. In fact, during the procedure, patients are usually comfortable enough to watch videos or work on laptops or tablets, read or even take a nap. The length of the treatment depends on an individual’s particular needs but usually takes around an hour. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting.

What to Expect

There have been numerous studies regarding the results behind Cryolipolysis. These studies have proven that after just one treatment, patients can expect a 20% reduction in fat in as few as 3 weeks after the procedure. CoolSculpting freezes and kill fat cells, so in the weeks and months following the procedure, the body will naturally process and eliminate these targeted cells leaving the patient with a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. Once the body rids itself of these cells, they are permanently gone. It is important to note that after CoolSculpting, a patient should practice a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise for optimal results.
