OK sweet, loyal, kind readers and followers. I told you that I would circle back to my CoolSculpting experience and give you my results. Today is the day. I am disclosing my pictures – please be kind!
You might remember that I told you about this in March in this blog post. Well, I went in and had my love handles done and I have since gone back for my follow-up appointment and to take my “after” pictures. I am showing them to you in this blog post so that you can see for yourself the huge difference just ONE session will yield.
CoolSculpting is a simple office procedure that normally takes about 1 hour per treatment area and requires no anesthesia. For the first 10 minutes of treatment, you may feel a strong feeling of coldness as cryolipolysis takes place. It feels like someone is pinching you. The office has a iPad with Netflix and I watched a movie during the procedure. After your procedure, you may notice some numbness, soreness, or tingling around the treatment area, which will last for a few weeks. Light swelling, bruising, or redness can also occur and should subside within a couple of days. There is no down time. And those fat cells are gone forever. Yippee!
Dr. Lori Stetler and her staff have really refined the art of CoolSculpting. In addition to tummies and love handles, it works great on inner and out thighs and that little pocket underneath the buttocks. It is really amazing what you can do to sculpt the body in those tough areas. The inner thigh process will give you that much sought after “thigh gap” and who’s outer thighs don’t need a little work?
The Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics is extending their May specials through the end of June for my readers (see below). Call now to book your appointment and be sure to reference this blog post and offer – (214) 631-7546.
My personal results after only one treatment of CoolSculpting at the Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics. Look at how much more defined my waist is and there is no longer a crease in my back.

The CoolSculpting procedure uses an innovative process to freeze fat cells at a low temperature without injuring nearby tissues. This process, known as cryolipolysis™, destroys the unwanted fat cells. Targeted fat is then metabolized and eliminated as part of the body’s normal processes. Studies show that most people can reduce fat by 20 to 25% after just one CoolSculpting session.
At our practice in Dallas, we recommend CoolSculpting for people who are generally active and fit, but who are looking to remove fat around the waistline or thighs. Common problem areas treated with CoolSculpting include “love handles,” a “muffin top,” “bra fat,” and inner and outer thighs. With the addition of the CoolSmooth™ applicator, patients with even small fat deposits can benefit. The results from CoolSculpting are permanent in the sense that the fat cells will not return. However, CoolSculpting does not prevent weight gain. Healthy eating and regular exercise are needed to maintain your results. And additional treatments can provide further benefits. Thermage skin tightening treatments can further enhance your results.
