Weight fluctuations. Pregnancy. Aging. These are the life experiences that create the "problem areas" that can dramatically affect the way your body looks and feels.
If you have stubborn pockets of fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise - and you're not quite ready for surgery - our Houston CoolSculpting treatment may be the answer you've been looking for.
CoolSculpting works by freezing unwanted fat cells with controlled cooling. The technology was developed by Harvard researchers who noted that children who regularly ate popsicles had thin cheeks due to the cold killing off fat cells in the area.
Once CoolSculpting freezes unwanted fat cells, they will eventually break down and die off. At that point, your body will flush them out via your kidneys. This natural process takes a few months to complete, at which point your CoolSculpting results will be considered final.
At Dr. Lyos's state-of-the-art facilities, we routinely perform CoolSculpting in The Woodlands and Houston to help our patients reduce unwanted fat on the following areas of the body:
Our CoolSculpting in Houston is a safe, effective and exciting approach to non-invasive fat reduction. However, it's not right for everyone.
For example, if you have a large amount of weight to lose, CoolSculpting generally will not be recommended as an option. The best CoolSculpting candidates are usually within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight.
When you first arrive for your CoolSculpting in The Woodlands or Houston, you will meet with one of our team members to review your body shaping goals. Because everyone's body is unique, your treatment plan will be completely tailored to your needs.
During the actual procedure, you will lie down on the treatment table and a gel pad and applicator will be gently placed on the target area. The applicator will then deliver controlled cooling to the unwanted fat.
The entire experience will be very comfortable. In fact, many of our clients read, send emails, and sleep throughout the process. You may experience some mild pulling, pinching and tingling initially, but these sensations will subside as your treatment progresses and the area becomes numb to the cold.
One of the best benefits of CoolSculpting is that there is no downtime associated with the procedure. As such, you will be free to resume your normal daily routine right away.
After the procedure, some of our Houston clients experience swelling, bruising, and lingering sensations. However, these effects are temporary and should subside within a week or two at most.
CoolSculpting works by freezing your unwanted fat cells so that your body can clear them away through its own natural process. As such, the results take time to emerge. As a general rule, you can expect to see your most dramatic improvements between one and three months post-treatment.
Once the targeted fat cells have been destroyed and cleared from the body, they will not regenerate. However, you can still gain weight in other areas, so it's important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine moving forward.
