Why Consider Coolsculpting?
People who are good candidates for CoolSculpting should be at or near their target weight and have realistic expectations about their results. Many people who consider CoolSculpting have one or more of the following concerns:
- Persistent fatty deposits in the love handles or abdomen
- A double chin
- Pockets of fat in other parts of the body
Many people also use CoolSculpting to improve upon their results from a previous liposuction or tummy tuck procedure.
How much does Coolsculpting cost in Houston?
The cost of CoolSculpting can vary slightly depending on location, but please be aware that CoolSculpting charges are “per-treatment,” and more than one treatment per area is often required for optimal effect.
For best results, it is generally recommended that men and women receiving CoolSculpting body contouring have a minimum of two treatment sessions. At Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we offer frequent special promotions for CoolSculpting body treatments. We also offer plastic surgery financing options to make your body contouring as affordable as possible.
Your Coolsculpting Options
We will work closely with you to determine whether CoolSculpting body contouring or the CoolMini® would best suit your individual needs. After clearly communicating their goals with our professional aestheticians during a consultation, many men and women can schedule their nonsurgical body contouring procedure within the next week.
Since the FDA first approved CoolSculpting in 2010 to treat the flanks ("love handles"), the makers of the procedure have continued to add specialized applicators that can now treat virtually any area of the body. These applicators are designed to fit snugly on the treatment area. Our practice offers all of the CoolSculpting applicators. Some of the most popular applicators include:
We customize treatments using this single applicator by changing attachments. CoolFit Advantage™ treats inner thighs, CoolCore Advantage is the most commonly used applicator because it can contour the abdomen and other areas in a 35-minute treatment. The CoolCurve+ Advantage™ sculpts the flanks. Using 2 applicators we can treat both sides in 35 minutes.
The new CoolFit Advantage allows us to treat inner thighs like never before. With the new cup design, we can freeze the uppermost bulge for more inner thigh clearance.
Our largest applicator de-bulks areas such as the upper and lower abdomen that can then be sculpted to create the final contoured results. This can treat abdominal fat that hangs over the waist and can be used on the hips, arms, and men's chests. The treatment takes 45 minutes.
Ideal for reducing fat on the upper arms, knees, and the back of the thighs. It's also used to sculpt away bra bulges and banana rolls in only 35 minutes.
Imagine reducing the appearance of a double chin without incisions or injections. The CoolMini is designed to fit under the chin and, when combined with an Ultherapy® skin tightening treatment, produces the ultimate nonsurgical neck lift and fat reduction procedure.
Our favorite applicator! The CoolSmooth PRO freezes fat in hard-to-treat areas with a unique, flat, non-suction applicator. It treats dense fat on areas such as the outer thighs using advanced technology that warms the fat and then reduces the temperature to the coldest of all the devices.
Your CoolSculpting Procedure
CoolSculpting treatment is non-invasive, meaning no anesthetic, needles, incisions or lengthy recovery period are needed. CoolSculpting technology delivers controlled cooling to target the fat cells in the treatment area, which cause the fat cells to crystallize and then die.1 Eventually, the body gets rid of the fat cells through its natural waste-removal system, resulting in a slimmer, more toned look.
During treatment, you can read a magazine, check your email or simply relax. It usually takes about an hour to treat a single area of the body, and we can treat multiple areas during a single appointment.
What is Dualsculpting?
With 2 CoolSculpting machines, we can treat 2 areas at the same time—cutting treatment times in half. No need to make multiple appointments or take more time out of your day.
Your Recovery & Results
Since the procedure does not involve anesthesia, incisions or injections, you won’t need any downtime to recover. Afterward, you can immediately return to your normal routine. The treated area may experience temporary side effects, such as swelling, tingling or numbness, but these should diminish on their own.
