What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, offered by our Austin, TX dermatology center, is one of the coolest, most innovative, nonsurgical ways to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology, known as cryolipolysis, targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Renee Snyder, and her team of skilled physicians have tested CoolSculpting repeatedly and have found the results to be effective and safe for most patients. The treatment involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. Natural results can be seen as early as 2 – 4 weeks following treatment.
"As usual, Dr. Aranda goes above and beyond in providing a personable care that is difficult to find. She takes the time to discuss various treatment options, discusses the pros and cons of each and genuinely values your input to collectively determine the best outcome. I feel so strongly about Dr. Aranda, Dr. Snyder and their professional staff that I still went to them last year when they were out of network. Thank you Dr. Aranda, you're just great!"- B.J. / Google / Mar 25, 2017

It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a viable solution for weight loss in overweight or obese patients. It is instead a fat-reduction procedure recommended for those at an average and healthy weight who have isolated pockets, or bulges of fat that have proven to be resistant in the past. Patients should have relatively healthy skin tone without loose and hanging skin.
During the Treatment
During a CoolSculpting procedure, a patient can expect to experience intense cold and pressure in the targeted area, but this dissipates quickly. The CoolSculpting device is placed on the area of fat where it will draw up the unwanted bulge in between the device’s two cooling panels. The sensation is comparable to a firm pull, but there should be no pain. In fact, during the procedure, patients are usually comfortable enough to watch videos or work on laptops or tablets, read or even take a nap. The length of the treatment depends on an individual’s particular needs but usually takes around an hour. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting.
What to Expect
There have been numerous studies regarding the results behind cryolipolysis. These studies have proven that after just one treatment, patients can expect a 20% reduction in fat in as few as 3 weeks after the procedure. CoolSculpting freezes and kill fat cells, so in the weeks and months following the procedure, the body will naturally process and eliminate these targeted cells leaving the patient with a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. Once the body rids itself of these cells, they are permanently gone. It is important to note that after CoolSculpting, a patient should practice a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise for optimal results.
