Body contouring is the future of fat loss. It cannot and will not replace health and fitness, but it can pair extremely well with diet and exercise to help you get the body of your dreams. If you have stubborn fat holding you back, know that there is a solution, and you don’t have to let your stubborn fat determine your destiny. At Oceana Luxe Medspa in Corpus Christi, TX, we offer CoolSculpting Elite, a unique body contouring treatment that will freeze away your fat permanently.
What Is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite is the only FDA-approved body contouring treatment that eliminates stubborn fat by freezing it. This treatment has helped thousands upon thousands of individuals finally reach their body goals. If diet and fitness efforts have failed you when it comes to getting rid of pockets of stubborn fat that keep you from reaching your ultimate goals, there is a solution, and it’s found in this unique treatment.
How Does It Work?
This process uses a specialized device with an applicator pad and a suctioning tool to cool fat cells to their 54° freezing point and, in doing so, destroys them. Once they are destroyed, they experience apoptosis, which is the technical term for a cell’s death. The body no longer views these cells as fat cells but instead views them as body debris or excess waste. The body communicates with the lymphatic system to remove these cells over time.
Is It Safe?
CoolSculpting Elite is a completely safe treatment. It has been FDA-approved to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. This body contouring treatment has been studied and proven to be an effective option to help contour, tighten, and tone the body in a way that exercise and diet simply cannot. You can rest assured that you will be in excellent care when you schedule treatments at our office as you undergo these safe yet effective treatment sessions.
What Are the Benefits?
There are so many benefits to CoolSculpting Elite, which is why it has grown in popularity among men and women who want to finally reach their body goals. It is accessible to the average person; it isn’t a specialized treatment designed to treat celebrities, although many celebrities swear. It is efficient, and most appointments take approximately one hour so that scheduling treatment sessions won’t monopolize your day.
This treatment is also a painless, non-invasive, efficient, and a proven way to target, freeze, and eliminate stubborn fat. You will get results, and you will reach your body goals. No one will know that you underwent a body contouring treatment, but they will notice your results. Your clothes will look and fit better, you will look and feel better, and you will finally be able to reach your goals and even surpass them.
What Happens During a Typical Treatment?
When you arrive for your treatment, you will be able to lie back comfortably for the duration of your session. Your technician will begin the treatment by placing the cooling applicator pad directly on your treatment area. You may experience a sensation of intense cold, but the site will become numb within 10 minutes, and you won’t feel anything. Most patients relax, read, watch TV, or work remotely during the treatment.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Your treatment’s total length will depend on a few different factors, including how large your treatment area is, how many areas you want to target, and your ultimate goals. Once we create your treatment plan, we can give you a better idea of how long your appointment will take, so you know exactly what to expect on the day of your session.
Is There Any Downtime?
This treatment is completely non-invasive, non-surgical, and therefore requires no downtime. Once your appointment is over, you can return home or resume your normal daily activities. You won’t have to plan on any recovery, and you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. CoolSculpting is one of the few things in life that isn’t too good to be true.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Unlike invasive fat reduction procedures like liposuction, you won’t see your results immediately after a CoolSculpting treatment. Your results will appear gradually over time as your body naturally eliminates the dead cells from your treatment area.
As fat volume decreases, those areas will shrink and you’ll notice a visible change in your appearance. Most patients begin to notice changes within a couple of weeks of their initial treatment, with best results appearing between eight to twelve weeks post-treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The total number of treatments necessary for best results varies among patients. It completely depends on your goals. Some patients undergo multiple treatments to target various areas of the body to reach all of their goals. Others are happy with their results after one treatment. During your consultation, we’ll develop a treatment plan that helps you achieve all of your goals. This will include the total number of treatments that you’ll need to get the best results.
Some patients schedule additional sessions in the same treatment area to build on their results. One of the best parts of this treatment is that it is entirely customizable. It can be tailored to each patient’s needs. Some people want to treat stubborn fat in several different areas of their bodies; others want to treat one or two. The choice is yours, but we can help develop the best treatment plan so that you can look and feel your best.
How Long Will Results Last?
The most exciting part of this treatment, aside from the fact that it’s completely non-invasive, is that results are permanent. However, it’s important to note that you are responsible for maintaining permanent results. Adults do not grow new fat cells, but weight gain does cause the expansion of fat cells in certain areas of the body. If you gain weight after your treatment, there is no way to ensure that your treatment areas will not hold onto more stubborn fat.
The best way to ensure that your results are permanent is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Most people who choose this treatment already know the importance of a healthy lifestyle, hydration, a healthy diet, and a consistent exercise routine. As long as you keep doing what you’ve already been doing, you will maintain your results and enjoy your re-contoured body forever.
Can I Make My Results Show Up Faster?
You cannot change the rate at which your body eliminates the dead fat cells, but you can promote your lymphatic system in the meantime. The lymphatic system does not pump like the heart; it needs to be activated. Movement and exercise is the best way to help promote lymphatic flow throughout the body. You can also make sure that you stay hydrated because adequate water intake is essential to helping the body flush out toxins.
The Benefit of Gradual Results
The benefit of gradual results is that no one will tell that you had a body contouring treatment if you don’t want them to know. Your results will show up gradually, and you will look as if you have begun to lose weight or reach some goals at the gym. You won’t have any downtime, so you won’t need to take any time off work. The beauty of this treatment is no one needs to know about it unless you want them to.
Am I a Candidate?
The ideal candidates for this treatment are men and women who have reached a healthy weight but can’t seem to get rid of stubborn fat with diet and fitness alone. Body contouring treatments are intended to tighten and tone problem areas, not help obese people lose weight. If you have not reached a healthy weight, you will not qualify for this treatment until you do.
What CoolSculpting Elite Cannot Do
CoolSculpting Elite cannot remove large areas of non-pinchable fat, nor can it help you change the number on the scale. It will help you lose inches and reach your ideal body proportions.
Confirming Your Candidacy
Ideal candidates are also in good health and don’t have any extreme sensitivities to cold temperatures. If you are unsure whether you qualify for CoolSculpting Elite, one of our trained staff members will discuss your goals during your initial consultation. We will also review your health history and analyze your problem areas to determine that this is the right treatment to help you reach all of your body goals.
Once we confirm that you are a candidate, we will develop a customized treatment plan unique to your body and your needs. Then we can begin the treatment process so you can enjoy your results as soon as possible.
