CoolSculpting in The Woodlands

Hi, everyone. I'm Anita Gill. I'm a board-certified dermatologist at the Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology. We're located in The Woodlands, Texas. It's a little bit north of Houston, Texas.

In this short clip that you're about to see, we're going to be explaining CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a great procedure with no down time that freezes away the fat permanently. We usually recommend two treatments for a full transformation for you to see results. We're going to go step-by-step in how CoolSculpting works in the next video. If you have questions, please comment below, and then please subscribe to our channel. Thank you for tuning in.

Here we have our lovely nurse, Jalyn examining our patient prior to her CoolSculpting procedure. This particular patient is bothered by her lower abdomen. A lot of us, despite diet and exercise, have unwanted areas of fat that we want to get rid of, and we also don't want any downtime. We don't necessarily want to do liposuction or go under anesthesia, and CoolSculpting is a great way to permanently freeze the fat away. Here we are getting our markings in place.

A little bit about CoolSculpting. It is FDA approved for several different areas including the abdomen and the flanks. Usually we require that you do two treatments to get full corrections, to get that transformation that you want. The technology was produced by two Harvard scientists several years ago that noticed that with colder temperatures, that you could actually freeze away the fat and dissolve the fat permanently. A common question that is asked is, "Is this fat going to be redeposited somewhere else?" No, it's going to be excreted. With proper diet and exercise, the fat cells will be permanently excreted from your system.

Here, our patient is laying down. We have our markings in place. We're putting some extra pads just to keep everything nice, and tidy and clean. The patient is very comfortable. He or she can be listening to a podcast, reading her Kindle. We're prepping the patient prior to placing the gel pad on. This is the gel pad. It protects the skin prior to placing the CoolSculpting vacuum. It feels a little cold to the touch, but it's otherwise very comfortable. But it's a must before the CoolSculpting vacuum goes on.

So here we are. We're putting it in place. And next we're going to put the CoolSculpting vacuum on. So here we are. We're ready. So like we said before, usually this is the patient's first treatment. She'll come back in four or five weeks for her second treatment. A treatment can take anywhere from 35 minutes to a few hours, depending on the area that is treated.
