At Oceana Luxe Medspa in Corpus Christi, TX, we know that not everyone has the time to work out like an athlete, nor does everyone want to eat a restrictive diet to lose that last little bit of stubborn fat. And even those who do can’t always lose that stubborn fat because it’s, well, stubborn. For that reason, we offer an effective body contouring treatment called Coolsculpting that can help you reach your goals without extra workouts or changing your diet.
Does Coolsculpting Really Work?
Coolsculpting is like the Botox of body contouring treatments. It’s well known, it’s been around for a while, and people are raving about their results. However, if you’ve never experienced Coolsculpting before, let alone any body contouring treatment, you may be skeptical. Does it really work? Is it a gimmick? How is fat loss possible without the gym and a crazy diet?
We are here to assuage your doubts and let you know that this treatment does work and it’s not a gimmick. Instead, it’s incredibly effective because it uses a scientific process that’s clinically proven to eliminate stubborn fat.
How It Works
This treatment works so well because it operates according to a scientific principle and then initiates a process that requires the body to complete. The treatment device delivers extremely cold temperatures to targeted areas of stubborn fat. The blasts of cool air freeze the fat cells in the treatment area.
Fat cells that are frozen die, and once the fat cells die, they’re no longer viable, and the body responds to them as metabolic waste and removes them from the system. This is a gradual process, but it delivers results. As your body eliminates those destroyed fat cells, you will watch your problem areas take on a tighter, toned, and more contoured appearance.
Why It Works
This process, freezing fat cells to destroy them, was developed by Harvard-based scientists. The process that they discovered is called cryopolysis. By freezing fat cells, it’s possible to eliminate excess, stubborn body fat. For that reason, this body contouring treatment is not only scientific and clinically proven, but it’s also effective, and it delivers results.
The Importance of Trusting a Professional
This treatment is extremely effective and versatile, but you can’t do it on your own. The device is specifically designed to freeze fat cells, which results in cell death due to exposure to temperatures that they cannot withstand. You can’t do this at home. You can’t spend time in cold temperatures, hold an ice pack on your problem areas, or attempt to force cryopolysis at home. It wouldn’t work, and any attempt wouldn’t be safe.
Our experts perform this in-office treatment, and they have the skill and expertise and know what to do to help you achieve the best possible results. When you come to our office and experience this innovative body contouring treatment, expect to be amazed and expect to see some incredible results. Reaching your body goals is not some ethereal, unattainable thing. All you have to do is make a choice to experience this treatment for yourself and schedule your consultation.
The Treatment Process
Once you come in for your consultation and we review your medical history, evaluate your problem areas in person, and confirm that you are a good treatment candidate, we will schedule your treatment. Patients can arrive in comfortable clothes and can expect to spend their session relaxing as the device performs the fat-freezing process.
A Comfortable Treatment
Patients typically read, work remotely, or watch TV during the session. Some even choose to take a nap. It’s that relaxing and that comfortable. First, you will be situated in our treatment room, and then your technician will apply the Coolsculpting device to your target treatment area.
This gel pad will perform a suctioning action to help freeze the fat cells without harming any surrounding tissue. As the treatment begins, you will feel an extremely cold sensation on your skin, but that will soon dissipate as the area becomes numb.
A Painless Treatment
The treatment process is very manageable and won’t cause you any pain. You won’t need anesthesia or any numbing cream to endure the treatment. Instead, you can lay back and relax as the device initiates a clinically proven process that will finally help you achieve your body goals. Plus, this entire treatment process is quick.
Sessions take as few as 35 minutes to complete. However, if you choose to treat multiple areas, doing so will extend your treatment time to accommodate both of those areas. Many Coolsculpting devices are equipped with dual treatment heads so that we can target different problem areas simultaneously.
Treating Different Body Areas
One of the benefits of this treatment is that it’s quite versatile and can help target and eliminate stubborn fat in different areas of the body. Patients who choose this treatment can treat one specific area or multiple. It depends on their ultimate goals, but many patients find that after experiencing their results, they love the process and the results so much they come back to treat additional areas.
For that reason, it’s important that you let our technician know during your consultation about every area you’re not happy with. Then, we can create a comprehensive treatment plan that helps you achieve your body goals as quickly as possible. Treating multiple areas will help you achieve your results faster, especially if you have a specific goal in mind, an upcoming trip, or some type of event at which you want to look your best.
What Areas Can It Treat?
Coolsculpting can illuminate stubborn fat from multiple areas, including the area beneath the chin that causes the double chin, also known as submental fullness. It can also eliminate fat along the jawline known as submandibular fat, the upper arms, the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, and the area underneath the buttocks. Additionally, this treatment can help tighten loose skin beneath the chin.
Your Treatment Schedule
After just one treatment, most patients can achieve a 20 to 30% decrease in the total fat volume in their problem areas. However, some patients will require multiple treatments to address their target areas. It depends on your ultimate goals and your stubborn fat.
For this reason, an initial consultation is important because it helps us learn more about your problem areas, examine them in person, and determine the best treatment plan to target those areas and help you reach your goals.
Even though you’d like to see immediate results, it’s important to know that this treatment will require patience on your part. You won’t see an immediate improvement in your problem areas as soon as your treatment is over, but you will begin to see changes in your body composition within four to twelve weeks post-treatment. It can take up to six months to achieve your final results based on your treatment areas and the amount of fat you choose to treat.
Your body is responsible for completing the process that this treatment initiates, so you need to be patient and trust that it will perform the necessary process and eliminate those stubborn fat cells in its own time.
Another one of the many benefits of this treatment is that the results are permanent. However, you are responsible for maintaining your results by avoiding weight gain post-treatment. This treatment will eliminate a significant number of stubborn fat cells from your treatment area, but not all of them.
If you do gain weight after your treatment, your fat cells will expand, and there’s no guarantee that any remaining cells in your treatment area won’t expand. But, if you live a healthy lifestyle, follow a consistent exercise routine, and eat a healthy diet, you can expect some incredible, long-lasting results.
Am I a Candidate?
If you haven’t been able to lose that last little bit of stubborn fat even though you’ve been working out harder and eating right, you may be the perfect candidate for Coolsculpting. This treatment has helped thousands of men and women reach their body goals in a safe yet effective treatment process. This treatment is designed to target stubborn fat cells in the bodies of those who are at or near their goal weight.
It is not a fat loss treatment for those who are severely overweight. Additionally, those who are sensitive to cold temperatures may not make the best candidates for this treatment. Pregnant and nursing women should avoid this treatment until their primary care physician clears them.
