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?

How Does Coolsculpting Work? Coolsculpting is a non-invasive fat freezing technology used for body contouring.  It is done in-office without any need for anesthesia.  It utilizes a procedure called cryolipolysis, basically freezing fat to make it go away.  Different types of applicators are used to grasp fat in problem body areas.  The Coolsculpting machine then gradually lowers the temperature of the fat while protecting the skin and surrounding structures.  The fat is frozen for 30-60 minutes and the applicator is removed.  Over the next several months, the treated fat cells  will die and the area will get smaller. Does Coolsculpting Work? Yes, Coolsculpting does really work! Coolsculpting is one of those procedures with a proven track record and millions of patients already treated.  The concept of Coolsculpting was discovered when pediatricians noted that children who constantly had popsicles in their mouths developed dents in their cheeks.  The popsicles were freezing the fat and causing cryolipolysis! Coolsculpting is ideal for patients who are at or near their ideal body weight and have small fatty areas they would like reduced.  Common areas include love handles, bellies, thighs and double chins.   Due to its non-invasive nature and lack of downtime, it is ideal for healthy patients who are very busy and need a little tweaking of certain body area.  Of course, Coolsculpting works best with a healthy diet and weight loss, and regular physical activity. So Coolsculpting really does work but it is not a miracle cure for fat.  It does not solve obesity and cannot handle very large amounts of fat.  Patients requiring advanced body contouring are better candidates for Smartlipo Liposuction.  Patients wanting natural breast augmentation or a Brazilian Butt Lift can combine liposuction and fat transfer.  Coolsculpting does not treat loose skin and a tummy tuck may be a better option. Coolsculpting Near Me. Beleza Medspa offers multiple locations with Coolsculpting machines.  We have performed thousands of Coolsculpting procedures over the last 5 years.  Our Coolsculpting technicians have the experience to get you the best results.  We also offer the plastic surgery procedures you may need instead of Coolsculpting.  Make your free Coolsculpting consultation now.

Which is better, Coolsculpting or Liposuction? It depends on what you are looking for. Both Coolsculpting and Smartlipo are excellent procedures for body sculpting. They both offer the ability to shape your body with minimal discomfort and downtime.  However, both Coolsculpting and Liposuction are not right for every patient.  Let’s look more at Coolsculpting Vs Smartlipo. Coolsculpting: Freezing the fat. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is now a proven technology that has been around for years.  Millions of patients have been treated with this non-invasive and non-surgical procedure.  Performed in-office in as little as 35 minutes, Coolsculpting can reduce troublesome fatty areas on your body as much as 25%.  The procedure is very comfortable and there is no downtime or need for anesthesia.  Coolsculpting can be repeated for even better results.  New Coolsculpting applicators are faster and cover more body area and can treat double chins as well as almost any body area. Smart Laser Liposuction or Smartlipo. First introduced as the use of the Smartlipo laser to melt fat and tighten skin, Smart Liposuction has evolved into an even better procedure.  Using safe, tumescent anesthesia, smart liposuction can be performed while awake. There is minimal discomfort and patients are back on their feet immediately.  Even better, an experienced surgeon can actually sculpt your body to accentuate your curves and transfer fat to other areas.  The actual liposuction procedure itself also induces significant skin tightening. Coolsculpting vs Smart Liposuction. So Coolsculpting is great for small fatty areas where just reduction is needed.  It is ideal for those who don’t like needles or have no time for recovery.  However it does not tighten skin, perform sculpting or offer fat transfer. Smart liposuction offers the abilities of the surgeon to perform body sculpting.  The surgeon can also remove more fat in multiple areas than Coolsculpting can.  When performed under local anesthesia, the procedure is very safe and downtime is minimal.  Smart Liposuction also offers skin tightening and the ability to fat transfer. So which fat reducing procedure is best for me? It depends on your body type and expectations.  Coolsculpting can definitely deliver great results.  If you are looking for ‘wow’ results, smart liposuction may be the better procedure.  Smart liposuction can address more areas at once and can remove more fat immediately.  There is swelling after smartlipo that takes time to resolve but this is comparable to Coolsculpting that takes 2-4 months for results.  So if you are just looking for some quick and easy fat reducing treatments, Coolsculpting is for you.  If you want a dramatic change of your body shape, smart liposuction may be better.  A free consultation is the first step necessary to decide if Coolsculpting vs Liposuction would be right for you. Coolsculpting does it work? Do I need liposuction or a tummy tuck?

It is believed that the tradition of making a resolution on the eve of a new year began in the Babylonian culture. The Babylonians resolved to return borrowed farm equipment and start the new year free of debt. The tradition of making a resolution to mark the new year gained popularity in the United States in recent decades and the most popular resolution among American adults is weight loss. Because only 8% of resolutions made each year are actually achieved, there are a lot of people out there who will still be unhappy with their weight when they chime in 2014. Weight loss resolutions often fail because when it comes to fat loss and development of healthy eating habits, many people find that they do not have the tools or the knowledge needed to create long-term lifestyle changes. Luckily, this year can be different. This year you can be one of the 8% of people who turn resolutions into habits – and you don’t have to do it alone. Lose the weight Maybe you walk down the aisles of the grocery store and the labels look like gibberish. Perhaps you hit the gym but don’t see results quickly enough to motivate you to keep it up. If these scenarios sound like your resolution experiences, the Medical Weight Loss Diet is an ideal choice for you. Under the supervision of a Beleza dietician, patients lose significant weight during one 40-day cycle of the diet. The diet works because it combines a very low calorie diet with the use of a hormone – hormones which allow the body to access fat storage and use it as energy. Because a patient is using fat stores for energy, a normal metabolic rate and energy level is maintained. And, with the help of a dietician and a very low calorie diet, patients learn new eating habits and are able to better understand food labels so when the diet is over, they can keep the weight off. Get the shape you want The downside to weight loss is that weight is often lost from an area where it is wanted and remains in a location where it is unwanted.  Luckily, patients no longer have to live with it. A combination of SmartLipo Liposuction and fat transfer allows Beleza’s physician, Dr. Lawerence Broder, to take fat from a less desirable area, like the belly or love handles, and deposit it in a more desirable area, like the breasts or buttocks. The best part? SmartLipo with fat transfer is an outpatient procedure that utilizes local anesthetic and small incisions and rarely requires stitches. Most patients are back on their feet in a few hours, back to the office after a few days and back to exercise after a week. Refine your body Whether it is after weight loss or for a patient who just needs to trim a small amount of fat or a few inches from the waist, arms or legs, there are options available that allow for shape refinement. A non-invasive but permanent method of fat reduction is Coolsculpting. Because fat freezes at a higher temperature than the tissue surrounding it, Coolsculpting technology freezes fat without damaging skin, and then the frozen fat cells are naturally disposed of by the body. It is a non-invasive alternative to SmartLipo for patients that have fat to lose from areas like the belly, love handles, bra rolls, thighs and arms. Each one hour session is pain-free with no stitches, no incisions, no knives and little to no downtime. Most patients require only one session to see the results they want, but an area can be targeted more than once to see additional improvement. Venus Freeze is a treatment designed to promote skin tightening and new collagen formation using radiofrequency combined with magnetic energy. Using a series of treatments, Venus Freeze can improve skin tightness immediately and over time as collagen develops. Why make it stick this year? Weight and fat loss don’t just influence what you see when you look in the mirror; the change can make you feel better and your body function better, too. When you find yourself slipping on that diet or skipping the gym by the end of January, bring your weight loss resolutions to Beleza and make sure you’re part of the 8% who make their resolutions stick this year.…

Can I return to normal activities after Cool Sculpting? Cool Sculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over. When will I see Coolsculpting results? You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                             BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY TO FREEZE AWAY BODY FAT NOW AVAILABLE* Austin Based Cosmetic Surgeon Among First to Offer CoolSculpting in Austin — Austin, TX [May 16, 2012] – CoolSculpting®, an innovative technology that freezes away unwanted fat, is now available at Beleza Medspa, making it one of the first medical practices in Austin to offer this breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction. “CoolSculpting is an exciting new approach that is non-invasive and has shown significant results in clinical studies for removing fat without the potential risks and downtime of invasive procedures,” said Lawrence Broder MD.  I have found the procedure to be extremely effective, especially on resistant localized areas such as back fat, love handles and the isolated belly fat. CoolSculpting is extremely comfortable and our patients are highly satisfied.” Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body thereby inducing a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., in the United States, this breakthrough is based on a vast body of research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively and painlessly destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.  (more) CoolSculpting Available at Beleza Medspa Austin TX 5/16/2012 Page 2 of 3   Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area thereby specifically targeting fat. Treatments last between one to two hours. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects if they desire. On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated area, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.
