For over 6 years (since Jan. 2012), we have been providing CoolSculpting. It is a fat reduction technique designed to sculpt and contour your body by freezing away stubborn fat cells without surgery. The technology includes the use of controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they can be naturally flushed from your body to reveal a leaner physique. At LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, near New Braunfels, San Antonio, and Austin TX, under the careful control of medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon, we employ the use of state-of-the-art Cool Sculpting to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more about cryolipolysis with Cool Sculpt and decide if it is right for you. We look forward to helping you achieve the look you desire.
Although this procedure has proven successful in women and men of varying ages, those who are most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Experience stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to natural weight loss efforts
- Are not interested in or do not qualify for surgical procedures
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment
After your consultation with Dr. Carreon and once your CoolSculpting treatment plan has been developed, your procedure will be scheduled. During your appointment, the Cool Sculpting handpiece and a special gel pad will be applied to the desired area and controlled cooling will begin. The Cool Sculpt cooling, delivered through the applicator, will begin to target and freeze the fat cells. You will probably feel coolness during your treatment, but this typically does not cause great discomfort. As the applicator uses suction to pull the fat into the treatment area, you can expect to feel a slight tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations
WHAT TO EXPECT
Since the CoolSculpting procedure is nonsurgical, you will be able to return to normal activities following treatment. Typically you can return to work or normal activities immediately following your appointment. Side effects of the procedure usually include stinging, redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness of the treatment site. These side effects are temporary and will subside in the hours and days following your procedure. You may expect to see results in as little as three weeks, while you may also see obvious results 1 – 3 months after your Cool Sculpting treatment.
