Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting?

Learn more about how this non-invasive cooling treatment can remove stubborn fat.

With 2015 upon us all thoughts might be turning to New Year’s resolutions. If you are thinking about losing weight, you certainly aren’t alone. Approximately 51 percent of Americans want to lose weight; however, for some who try to lose weight time and time again, they may find that even with the proper diet and exercise certain body fat just won’t budge. Instead of giving up and being frustrated, talk to your Odessa, TX dermatologist about CoolSculpting and whether it could help you finally shed that excess fat.

What is CoolSculpting?


This FDA-cleared cosmetic treatment offers a non-surgical way to reduce body fat that hasn’t been affected by proper diet or routine exercise. In essence, CoolSculpting is the non-surgical form of liposuction.

How does it work?


Our CoolSculpting technology uses Cryolipolysis®, or manipulated cooling, to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells under the skin; however, the skin itself is unaffected by the treatment so you won’t have to worry about burns or unpleasant side effects. In the weeks after CoolSculpting treatment the fat cells will be completely and naturally removed from your body. What makes the treatment so ideal is that once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. This means that CoolSculpting offers long-lasting results.

How many CoolSculpting treatment sessions will I need?


Everyone’s treatment is specially tailored to fit his or her aesthetic goals. Treatment sessions can range anywhere from one to several hours depending on the amount of areas you are looking to target. We will talk to you about your expected length of treatment once we find out what you are hoping to achieve through CoolSculpting.

Is CoolSculpting painful?


This technology is completely non-invasive and gentle on your skin; therefore, patients will not need anesthesia or any pain medication before their treatment session. Many patients read, watch movies or nap during their procedure and very few report even minimal discomfort. If there is anything we can do to make your CoolSculpting treatment more relaxing, please let us know.

Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?


If you are looking to remove unwanted fat from and have been unsuccessful with traditional dieting and exercise methods, than CoolSculpting could be right for you. However, to best find out if CoolSculpting is a good option, call your Odessa, TX dermatologist to schedule a one-on-one consultation. Get the body you want for the New Year!
