CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular fat-reduction treatments in the industry, and at Oceana Luxe Medspa of Corpus Christi, TX, we offer these services to help you achieve a look that will leave you feeling confident and comfortable in your body. Read on to find out how this process works, who it’s best for, how it was invented, and other amazing advantages of this powerful, convenient technique.
Do You Lose Weight When You Do CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting works by freezing unwanted fat which breaks down slowly through the body’s natural elimination process. The dead cells are disposed of through apoptosis and phagocytosis, body functions that process cell death. The other tissues in the area remain undamaged. Many people wonder if it will help them lose weight. Although you won’t shed pounds, this body-contouring method can help you shrink sections of your body for a more toned physique. Muscle weighs more than fat, so it’s unlikely to reflect any changes on the bathroom scale.
Permanent Fat Cell Removal
Once a fat cell has been destroyed by the cryolipolysis treatment, it’s eliminated permanently and doesn’t accumulate any more excess lipids. It’s a long-term solution for people to reduce their body size and lose bulges in certain areas they want to trim down.
- Destroys fat cells by freezing
- Designed for targeted fat loss
- Safe, effective, and non-invasive
- Does not cause notable weight loss
- Dead cells are naturally purged by the body
Who Would Get the Most Out of Body Contouring?
Body shaping treatments work best for men and women who want to lose fat in particular sections of their bodies and are near their ideal weight. If you’ve had trouble losing fat stores in your face, arms, or other resistant areas, this could be right for you.
Best for People Close to Their Ideal Weight
This is not the best option for very overweight or medically obese individuals who still have a lot of weight to lose. There may be some exceptions for certain desired results. The primary purpose is not weight loss, but rather spot reduction.
- Diminish the size of specific areas
- Increase body image and self-esteem
- Shrink areas to improve how clothing fits
- Aesthetically contour your face and body
- Correct areas not fixed by diet and exercise
What’s the Difference Between the Elite vs Traditional?
Many people have heard of CoolSculpting, but not everyone understands how to choose between the traditional and elite versions. The difference is that elite version has C-shaped applicators instead of U-shaped, which is better able to target fat cells in areas with more superficial fat.
Elite Has 7 Different Applicator Sizes and Shapes
It’s great for targeting trouble areas like love handles or stomach bulges and makes a better connection with the skin. Cooling is faster and removes about 20-25% of fat from the area per treatment. The traditional applicators remove about 18-20% per session.
The Best Candidates for the Elite Treatments
While CoolSculpting treatments are used on many parts of the body, certain areas might be better for an elite treatment than others. Elite version is excellent for treating hips and inner thighs. It’s safe for anyone close to the weight they want, but provides more refined results.
More Cold Contouring Than Traditional Sculpting
With the elite system, you get a closer bond between the applicator and your skin, so the freeze is deeper and more powerful. Results may occur faster and be more productive.
- Back and bra bulges
- Hips and upper thighs
- Neck, chin, and cheeks
- Lower back and buttocks
- Love handles and abdomen
What’s Cryolipolysis and How’s It Different From Liposuction?
CoolSculpting is the brand name of a process called cryolipolysis which is the fat freezing technology used in the treatment. Liposuction removes fat through a surgical procedure that requires the insertion of a suction device. Liposuction can get rid of larger amounts of fat during one session, but with a greater potential for complications and downtime.
Multiple Benefits for Non-Invasive Sessions
Since there’s no surgery involved, there will be no hospital stay, lost time from work, and the cost is generally lower than traditional surgical options. You can resume your normal routine the same day without worrying about pain or a long recovery time.
Comfortable, Non-Invasive Fat Reduction With No Downtime
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction method that requires no needles or surgery, has minimal to no downtime, and can be done by a licensed esthetician. This is a great option for anyone looking to get rid of small pockets of stubborn fat. With no need for anesthetics, patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
Contour More Than One Area in the Same Day
Because there are no surgical procedures used, it’s possible to do multiple areas at once instead of having to schedule additional appointments. If you want to slim down both your thighs and back, both can be treated in one session without waiting.
Types of Fat Reduction
When it comes to body contouring, there are two types of treatments—invasive (surgical) and non-invasive (non-surgical). We recommend non-invasive options for patients who are unable to undergo surgery due to preexisting conditions.
Lose Stubborn Fat Resistant to Diet, Exercise, and Other Methods
It can be incredibly frustrating to diet and exercise faithfully for months or even years only to find that you still can’t achieve the results you desire. The distribution of fat storage is primarily based on genetics and energy stores may not be easily used up from certain areas.
Most Other Methods Don’t Work for Specific Areas
Resorting to over-the-counter diet pills, shakes, and processed foods is not a substitute for medical intervention when it comes to body contouring. They can also have unwanted side effects or cause health issues if not properly used or monitored.
Secondary Benefits of Body Contouring & Non-Surgical Fat Loss
Any area of your body that may have stubborn fat deposits can be safely reduced with non-invasive body sculpting. Contact us today to learn more about our services or schedule a consultation!

Seeing Results Could Motivate Other Fitness Goals
If you have long-term fitness goals, it could be an idea for you to take advantage of CoolSculpting. Since it’s less invasive, it’s a perfect solution for those who want to see some results before committing to a bigger lifestyle change through diet and exercise.
Progress Makes Perfect
