I am being brave and totally outing myself by telling you this. So please be kind with your comments. If you could permanently get rid of your fat cells without surgery would you do it? I did. I tried CoolScupting at the Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics. Summer is around the corner so I had my problem area taken care of – my love handles. Well, I have numerous problem areas but this one seemed most urgent.
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.
Results appear gradually over the course of several months as your body eliminates the treated fat cells. Most people begin to notice that their clothes are fitting more loosely around month 2, and the changes continue to develop for another month or so. Full results can take up to 60 days.
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? Mine do!
Here is the great news. For my readers they are offering a buy one area, get the second area half price if you mention the Film+Fashion+Fun blog. How great is that? You have read about Dr. Stetler before in this post about lasers and this one about peels. She has been my dermatologist for years and I love that she is well versed in so many aspects of cutting edge dermatology procedures. By the way, there are lots of men that enjoy this treatment too.
Call now to book your appointment and be sure to reference this blog post and offer – (214) 631-7546. This offer is good now through April 30th. Hurry, summer is around the corner. I am loving my results so far.
Here’s to bikini season! xoxo- Tanya
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.
