How does CoolSculpting work?
Our Austin body contouring treatment uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells. A vast body of research demonstrated that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. In the weeks and months following treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer.
What is CoolSculpting dual sculpting?
Before now, if you were looking to target unwanted fat on the love handles, you would have to receive treatment one side at a time. Now we can treat both sides at once to decrease your total treatment time. By performing dual sculpting treatments, we can provide shorter treatment times for each patient and a more flexible treatment schedule.
How long is a CoolSculpting treatment session?
A typical treatment can last from one to three hours. Dr. Leeman and the team at Mueller Surgery Center offer customized treatment plans based on your desired outcome. By performing dual sculpting treatments, we can provide shorter treatment times for each patient and a more flexible treatment schedule.
How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?
Many patients see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but you may decide that you want additional treatments. You can expect a 20 to 25 percent reduction of fat in the treated area with one treatment session. Dr. Leeman will work with you to determine if more than one treatment is needed.
