Every part of our body follows a lifecycle. Our skin cells form and are shed. Strands of hair come out when we brush our hair and shower. These cycles of growth and death are constantly happening in our bodies, and at Ovation Med Spa, we use safe and sophisticated techniques to encourage this natural process.
CoolSculpting: Eliminating Fat Cells By Prompting the Body’s Natural Response
CoolSculpting combines the knowledge that we have about fat cells with advanced technology. Scientific research has proven that CoolSculpting is safe and effective for getting rid of unwanted fat. This natural process, discovered by Harvard scientists, has become a revolutionary alternative to liposuction because it:
- Reduces fat up to 22 – 25% when used on its own and up to 36% when combined with Ovation Med Spa’s innovative Z-wave treatment.
- Requires no downtime or recovery period.
- Produces remarkable results that gradually improve over the first three months after treatment.
After CoolSculpting treatment, your body will naturally eliminate fat cells and expel them slowly, gradually sculpting your body without any surgical intervention or discomfort.
Are There Any Side Effects After CoolSculpting Treatment?
CoolSculpting does have some very minor side effects and when compared with alternative fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, will not disrupt any aspect of your daily life. Because treatment areas need to be pressed between two applicators to effectively target fat cells, after the procedure you may experience some:
- Light bruising where the applicators were placed.
- Temporary swelling that fades within the first few days of treatment.
- Mild soreness in treatment areas.
To alleviate these possible symptoms, many Houston patients use an over-the-counter pain reliever such as acetaminophen, aspirin, or ibuprofen for the first few days.
Do I Need to Stop Any Activities After CoolSculpting Treatment?
Unlike liposuction, you don’t need to limit any of your daily activities after your CoolSculpting treatment. Patients who visit our Houston medical spa often undergo CoolSculpting procedures during an hour-long lunchtime appointment and return to work right after the procedure.
With CoolSculpting, there are no aftercare instructions to follow or special surgical garments to wear. All you need to do is wait and watch the fat melt away in the weeks and months following your procedure. If you do have questions after your treatment, our friendly staff has all the answers and you can give us a call anytime.
Can I Receive More than One CoolSculpting Treatment?
Some of our Houston patients are satisfied with the results of one treatment, however we typically recommend retreating the area a second time within about 30 days of the first treatment. When combined with our Z-wave treatment this will eliminate up to 70-75% of the fat in the area, if you have certain fat reduction goals in mind we can continue perform CoolSculpting as many times as you need to achieve the results that you want. Remember that it will take a few months for your body to eliminate all of the fat cells targeted, so be patient while your body reaches its final form.
