Coolsculpting FAQS

How Many Coolsculpting Treatments are Needed? Every Coolsculpting procedure can lead up to a 25% reduction in the size of the fatty area treated.  So, if you are seeking a more than 25% reduction, a Coolsculpting procedure would need to be repeated.  This can be done anywhere from 2-4 months after the initial treatment. What are the Side Effects of Coolsculpting on the Stomach? Normal side effects of Coolsculpting on the stomach include redness, numbness, swelling and occasionally some discomfort.  Usually, all of these side effects resolve in a few days to weeks. Is Coolsculpting Covered by Insurance? No.  Coolsculpting is considered a cosmetic procedure and would not be covered by traditional health insurance.  However, Beleza Medspa does offer no-interest financing through CareCredit. What are Coolsculpting Pros and Cons? The Pros of Coolsculpting are that it is noninvasive, performed in office, no anesthesia is required, can take as little as 35 minutes, and there is no downtime.  The Cons of Coolsculpting are that results are limited to a 25% reduction in the fatty layer, it can’t sculpt the fat layer or transfer the fat and it can only treat areas that the applicator can fit. Does Coolsculpting Work on the Arms? Yes.  Coolsculpting works great to reduce pinchable fat on the arms. How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost for the Stomach? It depend on the areas of the stomach and the results desired.  The stomach is divided into upper and lower areas and each may require a separate treatment.  Additionally, larger fat layers will require larger applicators and further treatments.  A free consultation is required to determine a personalized quote. How Much Does Coolsculpting usually Cost? As Coolsculpting Prices reflect the cost of the applicators which can run from $800-$1600, one can expect to spend several thousand dollars for an effective Coolsculpting procedure.  In terms of the results delivered, Coolsculpting can actually be a bargain. Does Coolsculpting Actually Work? Yes.  Coolsculpting has been performed millions of times and is the gold standard for noninvasive fat reduction.  Coolsculpting is proven technology that freezes fat cells in a controlled fashion, causing the body to remove them.  How does Coolsculpting work? How Much Does Liposuction Cost? This is a great question.  As Coolsculpting can only reduce up to 25% of fat per session, patients who are seeking more reduction may find the Coolsculpting price too high.  Liposuction offers the ability to remove a large amount of fat in one session and also offers body sculpting and fat transfer.  So, for many patients, liposuction vs coolsculpting may be the better alternative.

Does Coolsculpting work?  Yes!  Coolsculpting works great to reduce fat in stubborn areas without needles or anesthesia.  The only limitation of Coolsculpting is that only one area of the body can be treated at one time.  So unfortunately, those two love handles will require separate treatments, doubling the time required.  Now, the treatment times have been decreased with new applicators like Cooladvanatge, but you still have to sit there through two treatments.  If you are doing multiple body areas at once, like many patients want to do, this can turn into hours and hours in the office. What is Dualsculpting or Dual Sculpting? Simply, Dualsculpting involves the use of two Coolsculpting machines at once.  So both those love handles can be treated at the same time!  Both those bra rolls can be treated at the same time!  Both those thighs can be treated at the same time!  As you can see, this can save you hours of time when you are doing multiple body areas.  Why don’t all practices offer dualsculpting?  Expense!  Beleza Medspa has invested in a second Coolsculpting machine to offer our patients Dualsculpting.  This investment allows our patients to save considerable time in their busy schedules.

Beleza Medspa in Killeen Texas utilizes CoolSculpting to help Army soldiers to meet body fat standards. This is a novel use of this technology which is intended for cosmetic concerns. KILLEEN, TEXAS (PRWEB) MAY 27, 2016 Beleza Medspa has initiated a new program to assist active duty soldiers with satisfying Army body fat composition regulations. This is the first time that Coolsculpting is being used for for more than just cosmetic purposes. Soldiers are normally screened at least every six months to ensure they meet the prescribed body-fat standard, measured by the circumference-based tape method. The tape-test is used when soldiers exceed weight standards. The tape-test measures the neck and waist in males to determine a body fat percentage. “The tape test is of great concern for many soldiers as it can affect their careers including promotions and retention” states Dr. Lawrence Broder MD, owner of Beleza Medspa, Austin TX. “Army weight standards have been out of date for many years and otherwise healthy, fit soldiers are being hurt by these standards” he adds. “Coolsculpting offers a way to reduce the size of fatty areas in a few months that can lead to positive outcomes on the tape test”, “as a former active duty soldier I know the anxiety that these tape tests can cause” Dr. Broder states. Coolsculpting is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The procedure requires no anesthesia, needles or downtime. During the painless one-hour procedure, patients can watch TV, listen to music or check email. At the conclusion of the procedure, the patient is free to resume normal activities. “Coolsculpting is the perfect, safe and effective FDA approved procedure to help these soldiers with their careers, not just for cosmetic reasons”, Dr. Broder adds. “It can treat abdomens and love handles to take inches off waists without affecting their readiness” he states, “The goal is to assist healthy soldiers with meeting outdated and inaccurate standards”. Beleza Medspa Killeen also offers DualSculpting, which allows twice the amount of Coolsculpting to be performed in half the time. Beleza will also help to reduce the coolsculpting cost by offering discounts to active duty soldiers. Beleza Medspa offers a full suite of weight control programs like Medical Weight Loss Diet and Ideal Protein as well as body sculpting with Smartlipo Laser Liposuction. Beleza Medspa was founded in 2007 and has offices in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Killeen Texas. Beleza Medspa is one of the largest providers of Botox, Juvederm and Smartlipo Laser liposuction in Texas and the U.S. Beleza Medspa’s office in Killeen Texas is located minutes from Fort Hood front gate, the largest U.S. Army base in the United States.…

Cool Sculpting Cost @Beleza Medspa. How Does CoolSculpting Work? Coolsculpting is an office-based, non surgical procedure.  In a one hour or less procedure, fatty areas can be safely and comfortably treated. The Coolsculpting applicator is applied to the fatty area and the fat is gradually cooled down to freezing.  This is done without damage to the surrounding tissues. Over the next several months, the fat cells die and fat deposits can shrink up to 25%. Coolsculpting is the ideal procedure to treat weight loss and exercise resistant fat deposits.  Common areas include the belly, love handles, thighs, chin and arms. The really great thing about Coolsculpting is that the fat cells are eliminated from your body!  Traditional weight loss causes fat cells to shrink but they are still there, waiting to get big again!  Coolsculpting causes these fat cells to die and they will never come back as long as you maintain your weight.   The only other procedure to do this is liposuction, but unlike Coolsculpting, anesthesia and recovery are necessary.   Coolsculpting can be repeated for even greater results and more than 1 million Coolsculpting procedures have already been performed! So How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost? The price of CoolSculpting is based on the number and size of applicators used. Obviously, different body areas require different sized applicators. The basic CoolSculpting applicators are small and large. The Coolsculpting Cost is based on the size and number of applicators used. The cost advantage of Coolsculpting over liposuction, is that anesthesia, compression garments and downtime are avoided.  The convenience of a 1 hour procedure and the lack of downtime, is priceless! CoolSculpting Cost Austin Coolsculpting Near Me Beleza Medspa has been performing CoolSculpting in our offices for more than 6 years and we have performed more than 1500 procedures.  We have developed a great deal of experience with this procedure.  We have 3 CoolSculpting machines located north and south to provide further convenience for our patients.

Zeltiq Coolsculpting is a new and innovative way to: Shrink fat. Cut the fat in as little as one hour. Use non-invasive and relatively painless methods to accomplish this. What’s so cool about Zeltiq Coolsculpting? Here are some benefits: No Heat – pure, gentle cooling methods are used to sculpt out fat without any damage to the fat tissues. No Cuts – means that there’s no downtime to get back to everyday activities, despite seeing dramatic results in as little as four to eight weeks. No cuts also mean no scars. No Anesthesia Used – and no pain is experienced during the procedure, given that no incisions are made. Learn more about how it works below. Zeltiq Coolsculpting is furthermore approved by the Federal and Drug Administration, or FDA in targeted areas of the body. Here’s How Zeltiq Coolsculpting Works: The technology draws on the natural makeup of how our inner metabolic processes work. By applying cooling methods to dedicated areas of the body, a promotion of fat burning is set into motion. Fat cells are eradicated through the procedure over time. One fun fact is that the procedure was born from Harvard Scientists’ observation of children eating popsicles. The reaction of the skin would be so the product was born. For pinchable areas of fat, a device consisting of two large cooling sheets is applied to the targeted fatty layer. Patients will feel a cooling sensation, but nothing painful. Many patients carry on conversations, read, or even catch a quick snooze during Zeltiq Coolsculpting. It’s that painless. Once treatment is complete, regular activities can be resumed right away. Repeat treatments can be used to get more fat reduction serially. Popular areas to conduct Zeltiq Coolsculpting include the midcore or abdomen, as we all know this is where stubborn fat exists.

Medical Spas: Right for You?

Med Spa Austin TX Going to a medical spa can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience as well as a way to get some actual medical procedures and treatments. Med spas are considered a combination of a medical clinic and a day spa, but the procedures and treatments that can be administered are less than what an actual medical clinic is capable of. Services Performed at Med Spas There are many services performed at med spas. From basic spa treatments like massages and exfoliations to Botox and Hydrafacials, med spas have it all. Some other treatments include facials, waxing, massages, concierge medicine, men’s health, physicals, laser hair removal and much more depending on which type of spa that you are visiting and where the spa is located. The treatments and procedures available at a med spa vary by location because there are different laws and regulations that each state and/or country has to abide by. Training Required for Med Spa Physicians & Practitioners As stated before, the type of training and certifications required vary by area. One common factor is that everyone who administers a treatment or procedure is supposed to be trained, qualified and certified for that treatment. If you are ever doubtful of a staff member’s qualifications, all you have to do is ask to see the person’s certifications. Choosing a Med Spa that is Right for You The best way to choose the med spa that is right for you is by researching what you want and/or need. Using a search engine on the internet can be helpful in finding reviews, but reviews are not always trustworthy sources when dealing with anything health related. Sometimes you can get references from your primary physician, but even family and friends are great resources for finding a trustworthy clinic. What you decide to do is completely up to you, but it is highly recommended that you research the clinic before scheduling an appointment. Best Med Spa Austin Beleza Medspa Austin has been in business for more than 10 years.  It has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Killeen TX.  It is among the leaders in Botox & Juvederm, Hydrafacials, Microneedling, Coolsculpting and Ultherapy.  It has multiple locations with highly experienced and trained staff.  All staff are trained by the physician owner, Dr Lawrence Broder MD.  This is why you may consider Beleza Medspa the Best Med Spa Austin!…
