Who is CoolSculpting for?

CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that’s designed for individuals who have noticeable, unwanted bulges on their body—from muffin tops and love handles to extra fat on your thighs and under your chin. The procedure eliminates body fat that resists diet and exercise, no matter how hard you’ve tried to shed it.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Not sure what CoolSculpting actually does? CoolSculpting is the world’s first non-invasive fat-removal procedure that has been cleared by the FDA. This fat-freezing option can help you eliminate the stubborn fats that you’ve tried and tried to diet and exercise away but just can’t.

Dr. Roby Hayes, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon and the Medical Director at Bridgetown Aesthetics says this about CoolSculpting.

I think it’s important that people understand that there is a technology readily available to them that’s completely non-invasive that can help them address the areas in their body that they have pinchable fat that bugs them”

With our CoolSculpting in Houston, the treatment time lasts 45 to 60 minutes per treatment area. During the actual procedure, you can expect a big vacuum applicator to suction your fat folds and expose them to just-above-freezing temperatures, crystallizing the fat cells and naturally killing them. During treatments, you will likely feel a tugging and an intense cold, but it will dissipate after a few minutes as the area goes numb.

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

“If [patients’ bodies are] exposed to cold they will develop inflammation in the fat and then the fat will actually disappear. But then people just kind of forgot about it. It was just one of these oddball kind of things you’d see rarely in dermatology,” says Dr. Rox Anderson, a dermatologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and director of The Wellman Center for Photomedicine. He helped discover cryolipolysis, the science behind CoolSculpting.

With CoolSculpting technology, the body will naturally process the fats and eliminate the dead cells, which is why the results don’t show up right away. The non-surgical fat-reduction procedure is safe and scientifically proven.

Cold temperatures cause blood vessels to constrict and reduce blood flow and the vacuum is used to destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting is similar to cryotherapy in that it uses cool temperatures on the body.

CoolSculpting in Houston at Sona utilizes this advanced cooling fat-reduction technology to ensure that fat cells are targeted and eliminated without pain, strenuous exercise, or lengthly recovery times.

What are the Target Areas for CoolSculpting Treatments?

We all develop fat in different areas of the body. Maybe you’ve had a baby, and you’ve done everything you can to lose the belly fat but simply can’t. For women, shedding excess fat and losing weight are often a difficult challenge. It can be tough for men, too. Both men and women can store extra weight in one part of the body but nowhere else. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you simply can’t get rid of stubborn fat, especially in those troublesome spots.

You’re not alone. But here’s how our Houston CoolSculpting can help. The procedure targets the fat cells that are the hardest to get rid of through exercise and dieting (most often recognized as lipid-rich cells). With CoolSculpting, even the most stubborn fat deposits are simply frozen and flushed away naturally.

If you are looking to destroy extra body fat in a specific area, CoolSculpting might be the best option for you. Areas where CoolSculpting can help include:

CoolSculpting Treatment Areas

  • Chin or neck (“double chin”)
  • Flanks (the sides of the body, also called “love handles”)
  • Arms (the upper part where skin flaps, sometimes called “bat wings”)
  • Belly (also called a belly roll or “muffin top”)
  • Thighs (both inner and outer, also called “saddle bags”)
  • Back (if you have rolls or extra fat)
  • Knees (if you have extra drooping skin)

What Should You Do Following the Procedure?

Because CoolSculpting is not a surgical procedure like liposuction, it does not require you to take off any time from work. There is no need for recovery time. When the procedure is over, you can return to your normal daily activities.

If you feel swelling or bruising, you can take over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen or skin ointments to minimize the pain or bruising. Beyond that, this procedure does not require a recovery plan, like an outpatient surgical procedure. If you notice any unusual side effects or if the swelling does not go away within a few weeks, you can call your doctor for a follow-up treatment.

Just remember, the results are not immediate, and more than one fat-reduction treatment may be necessary. Also, this procedure does not prevent future weight gain, so you should continue to live a healthy lifestyle of sensible eating and exercise following the treatments.

Is CoolSculpting Right for You?

Not everybody is a good candidate for CoolSculpting. It is not a weight-loss plan. If you’re looking for a program to help you lose a significant amount of weight, CoolSculpting is not the right solution for you.

However, if you have undergone significant weight loss or maintain a healthy body weight and still have excess fat deposits, then CoolSculpting may be an appropriate treatment for you. Both men and women can benefit from this procedure.

You might want to try CoolSculpting in Houston if:

  • You have excess body fat in your abdomen, chin, arms, thighs, or flanks (love handles).
  • You follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen but still have troublesome fatty areas.
  • You are close to your ideal body weight.
  • You want a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment.
  • You live a busy lifestyle and want to return to your day-to-day activities as soon as possible.

CoolSculpting is designed for individuals who have concentrated areas of extra body fat. It can be an effective solution, but it will not work to eliminate large areas of fat that require significant removal or weight loss.

Because CoolSculpting isn’t right for everyone, a trained staff member will consult with you to determine the best treatment for your body type and the desired targeted areas. Prospective clients in the Houston area can contact any Sona location before deciding if CoolSculpting is right for you. Fill out the online form for a free consultation.

Common Misconceptions about CoolSculpting

It is liposuction.

CoolSculpting is not liposuction. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery. Traditionally, when patients undergo liposuction, they are put under a general anesthesia. CoolSculpting, however, is not cosmetic surgery. It is a cosmetic procedure that does not require anesthesia. You are not only awake during the procedure, but you can read, scroll on your phone, or work on your computer while the procedure is in progress.

It is painful.

CoolSculpting is not a painful procedure. You will feel it, of course. You will likely feel discomfort like tingling, burning, or itchiness, but it should not be painful. Applying ointment on the treatment area following the procedure can help you reduce any redness or discomfort.

It is a weight loss alternative.

Although there are hundreds of ways to lose weight, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss alternative. It is not an invasive weight removal option like gastric bypass surgery.

It can cause frostbite.

Because the CoolSculpting applicators use controlled, cool temperatures, you may experience the same effects as frostbite (such as redness and burning), but CoolSculpting will not cause frostbite.

It is not safe.

CoolSculpting is the first and only non-invasive weight loss procedure that is FDA approved. It is safe and effective. It is scientifically proven to be a fat-reduction procedure. But before you book your appointment with Sona, it is best to consult with your doctor or dermatologist.

It can eliminate cellulite.

Although CoolSculpting is meant to remove extra body fat, it is not meant to eliminate cellulite or tighten your skin. If you want to remove lumpy, dimpled skin that often appears on your legs or arms as you age, you may consider Venus Legacy™, which is also non-invasive. It is a pain-free, skin tightening and body contouring technology. Venus Legacy does not freeze fat the way CoolSculpting does. Instead, the treatment uses radiofrequency technology to boost collagen production and break down fat cells to tighten skin.

Before and After Testimonials: Reviews for CoolSculpting at Sona

Sona has been in business for over 20 years and have treated thousands of clients. The following reviews show real results from real clients:

The place is very nice, the staff is nice and professional.” – Cristina from Sugar Land, TX”

I’ve been so pleased with my services and results at Sona. The staff really care and do a fantastic job.” –Milet from Houston, TX”

Depending on your body and your lifestyle, the results of CoolSculpting may not show up for two months or more, but the benefit of CoolSculpting is that it can lead to long-lasting results. Once you kill fat cells, they are removed completely.

However, there is no guarantee that remaining cells won’t get larger. The best way to get the desired results and to prevent extra body fat from returning to the target areas is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and continue exercising regularly.

FAQs about CoolSculpting

Is cryolipolysis an obesity treatment?

CoolSculpting is not meant to treat obesity or to help you lose weight. It is meant for targeting and removing extra body fat that is not responding to your weight loss efforts.

Can you lose weight with CoolSculpting?

No, you will not lose significant weight with these treatments. You can remove extra fat from stubborn areas, but you will not lose more than a few pounds. If you are considering weight loss options, you should look at other treatment programs.

Can CoolSculpting remove the health effects associated with obesity?

Although CoolSculpting can help remove excess fat, it does not directly impact or improve your health.

Can you perform the procedure on multiple targeted areas at the same time?

It depends. One applicator from the machine will target one area at a time, so if you are looking to treat both arms, for example, you would need to use two different applicators. Often, if there are multiple targeted areas, they will be treated separately but during the same appointment.

How much is the cost of CoolSculpting treatments?

It depends on the area of the body and how many areas are being treated, but Sona offers affordable options to fit your budget.* We offer competitive pricing, so you can get the desired results you want at a price you can afford.

  • Redness
  • Numbness
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Tingling

Less common side effects include:

Expect to undergo a few treatments before achieving your desired results. Like laser hair removal, it doesn’t work overnight, but it does work.
