Dealing with persistent fat can be frustrating, but CoolSculpting Elite at About Face & Body Medical Spa in Katy, TX can help. This innovative body contouring treatment freezes fat cells, which are then gradually removed by your body, leading to a slimmer and more sculpted appearance. With advanced technology and personalized care, you can achieve your body contouring goals effectively and comfortably.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells through a process called cryolipolysis. A special applicator is used to cool the targeted fat area to a temperature that disrupts the fat cells without harming the surrounding skin. This noninvasive treatment is comfortable and requires no downtime, making it an attractive option for those with busy lifestyles. Over the following weeks and months, individuals notice a reduction in fat as their bodies continue to remove the dead fat cells.

What happens to fat cells after fat freezing treatment?

Fat cells frozen during CoolSculpting treatments die and are gradually removed by your body over the next few weeks to months. As these dead fat cells are naturally processed and removed, you'll start to see a slimmer, more contoured appearance in the treated area. One of the best parts? These fat cells are gone, so they won't come back. However, it's still important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep the rest of your fat cells from expanding so you can continue to enjoy your new shape for the long term.

How long does CoolSculpting last?

The results of CoolSculpting can be long-lasting, provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Since the treated fat cells are gone, they won't return. However, it's important to note that remaining fat cells can still expand if you gain weight. Staying active and following a balanced diet can help you retain your new, contoured shape for many years. This makes CoolSculpting a reliable option for those looking to invest in their appearance and boost their confidence.

What happens if I gain weight after my fat freezing treatment?

Gaining weight after CoolSculpting can cause the remaining fat cells in untreated areas to expand. While the treated areas will have fewer fat cells, weight gain can lead to fat accumulation in other parts of the body. For that reason, we advise those considering CoolSculpting to wait until they're close to their ideal weight. Following their fat freezing treatment at our Katy, TX office, many people notice that their overall body shape remains more balanced and contoured. The treated areas typically maintain their reduced fat cell count, providing a more sculpted look even if some weight is gained.
