If you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle, you know how frustrating it can be to get rid of pockets of residual fat. Age, genetics, and other factors can leave you with bulges that resist diet and exercise, but CoolSculpting® can reduce fat without surgery or downtime.
The Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa was founded in 1997 in Houston, Texas. Dr. Richard LeCOney and his wife Dana have developed comprehensive personal anti-aging, wellness, hormone, and skincare programs for both men and women.
Our motto is: “Feel as good as you look, and look as good as you feel.”
We believe that there is simply no reason for you to look or feel your age. A highly trained provider will meet with you and discuss the problem areas and develop a tailored treatment plan that suits your specific needs.
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® treatments are in good general health and at or near their ideal weight. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution; it is designed to help reduce residual fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® uses a process called cryolipolysis to help reduce stubborn fat bulges by up to 25 percent. A protective gel pad will be applied to the treatment site to protect your skin. CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared to reduce fat in nine different areas of the body, including the following:
The CoolSculpting® machine uses suction to draw the targeted bulge up between the applicator paddles. The device then uses controlled cooling technology to freeze fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. The cold temperatures cause the fat cells to crystallize, rupturing the cell wall. Your body then processes and eliminates the dead fat cells as waste.
You may experience some slight swelling or soreness in the treated area, but these side effects should resolve within a week or two. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after their treatment.
Some patients may see initial results a few days after their treatment, but the final outcome is typically noticed after four to six weeks as frozen fat cells are eliminated from the body. Patients require a series of treatments to achieve their desired aesthetic.
CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis to permanently kill fat cells. (Fat freezes at a higher temperature so it doesn’t harm the
