Chill Your Way to a Sculpted Body

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses cooling technology to reduce fat in problem areas such as the stomach or thighs. Over 10,000 patients worldwide have seen the benefits of CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight-reduction program for overweight individuals. The best candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure are people close to their ideal body size who eat well and exercise regularly but have pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is ideal for spot reduction for specific trouble areas of fat.

What to Expect from CoolSculpting Non-Surgical Fat Removal

Your CoolSculpting Procedure

The CoolSculpting body contouring procedure is performed in a medical office, under the supervision of a physician. The procedures last one to two hours. Patients can sit or lie and read, work on a laptop or even nap during the procedure.

During the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers cooling to the precise treatment area to target underlying fat. Surface skin tissue is unaffected. The cold triggers a process of natural removal of fat cells. The result is a visible reduction in fat bulges.

Fat Reduction Results

One CoolSculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat on average. Patients can start seeing measurable results as soon as three weeks following the non-invasive procedure. The most dramatic results can be seen after two months. Many patients find that just one treatment achieves the desired results; however, additional treatments can achieve greater fat reduction.

CoolSculpting Recovery and Aftercare

After a Houston CoolSculpting treatment, it's important to follow specific aftercare tips to ensure the best results and minimize potential side effects. Massaging the treated area a few times a day for several days after the treatment can promote the body's waste removal process. Engaging in light exercise like walking and stretching is encouraged to increase blood circulation and speed up the body's natural healing process. It's also crucial to wear loose, comfortable clothing and avoid heavy lifting for at least three to four days after the procedure to reduce swelling and pain in the treatment area. Additionally, maintaining a balanced diet and regular exercise can help maintain the effects of CoolSculpting indefinitely.

CoolSculpting Frequently Asked Questions

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring treatment that targets and freezes fat cells, allowing the body to naturally remove them in the weeks and months following the procedure. The CoolSculpting applicator is applied to one area of unwanted fat at a time, such as the abdomen, hips, bra fat, inner/outer thighs, or chin. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the treatment area, causing fat cells to undergo "cryolipolysis" (cell death) due to freezing while the surrounding tissue remains unharmed.

Patients may experience discomfort in the first 5 to 10 minutes of the procedure as the body adjusts to the cold pads. However, the treatment typically does not involve significant pain, and patients are encouraged to bring something to do during the hour-long treatment session to pass the time.

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution but a tool to eliminate diet and exercise-resistant fat pockets. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and exercise can help augment and support CoolSculpting results.

After a CoolSculpting treatment, wearing loose, comfortable clothing and engaging in light exercise like walking and stretching is recommended to reduce swelling and promote the body's natural healing process. Massaging the treated area a few times a day for several days can also aid in the body's waste removal process. Additionally, maintaining a balanced diet and regular exercise can help maintain the effects of CoolSculpting indefinitely.

CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive treatment with no downtime, and patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
