It can be more than a little frustrating when working out at the gym and following a healthy diet doesn’t produce the physical results you desire. When it comes to burning excess fat, there are numerous procedures and products on the market that promise results. Diet pills, low-calorie shakes, high-tech exercise equipment… you’ve tried it all and it just hasn’t worked. You could elect for an invasive surgical procedure (Liposuction) that would require weeks of downtime OR you could receive nonsurgical body sculpting, also known as CoolSculpting ®, at Amici Aesthetics Med Spa in Friendswood.
How Can CoolSculpting "Freeze" Away Fat ?
Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting ® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. This fat-freezing method is called cryolipolysis. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

Why COOLSCULPTING Works
In a word… Popsicles!
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells in their cheeks. The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting® procedure is based.
CoolSculpting treatments can reduce the number of fat cells in the treatment area by up to 25 percent
Your body has a limited number of fat cells, and the number is set sometime during adolescence. These fat cells merely enlarge and shrink as you gain or lose weight – they don’t leave. The key is to reduce the total number of fat cells present in specific body areas. Even with some weight gain, there are fewer enlarged cells in the treated area and any weight will be more evenly distributed, rather than collecting in the treated area.
What To Expect During
A COOLSCULPTING Treatment
Treatments can last from 30 minutes to and hour depending on the treatment area(s). As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
One of the best ways for patients to understand how the CoolSculpting® treatment works is to see it in action. Watch providers from the #CoolSculptingPro community perform the procedure — from assessment to treatment.
Even though CoolSculpting® results speak for themselves, hearing reviews on the procedure can give others a “reason to believe” that it works. Hear what real patients have to say about their treatment journey and experience.
