What’s So Cool About CoolSculpting®?

shutterstock_175119050In an effort to achieve a physique that you feel good about, many people follow a variety of diet and exercise regimens. Unfortunately, some are unable to successfully get the body they desire. Plastic surgery has many treatments that can noticeably improve the appearance of your body, and at Timeless Plastic Surgery, we offer CoolSculpting® to permanently and effectively eliminate stubborn fat from different areas of your body.

Approved by the FDA, this innovative treatment safely removes localized fat deposits on the body when diet and exercise regimens fail to do so. Through a process called Cryolipolysis®, CoolSculpting® literally freezes fat cells until they are permanently destroyed.

CoolSculpting is effective at addressing many conditions of the body, including:

  • Love handles
  • Muffin top
  • Back bulges
  • Bulky arms
  • Saddlebags

How is CoolSculpting® performed?

CoolSculpting® is performed on an outpatient basis and requires no anesthesia or sedation. After a device with specialized cooling panels is applied directly to the skin, stubborn fat deposits on the targeted areas of the body are permanently destroyed with extremely cold temperature. As the fat cells are destroyed, they are eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic process. Once these fat cells are gone, they are gone forever!

How long do the results last?

Although the results of CoolSculpting® won’t be seen immediately after the procedure, over the coming weeks and months, you will begin to notice a measurable fat reduction in the treated areas. CoolSculpting® is meant to produce permanent results as long as you maintain a healthy weight.

How many treatments will I need?

Even though most people will see an improvement after just one CoolSculpting® treatment, it is very common for patients to undergo multiple treatments to achieve the best results possible.

If you’ve been unable to get the body you want through diet and exercise, then perhaps CoolSculpting® is right for you. Contact our Houston practice by calling (281) 242-8463 or by filling out our online contact form today. We are dedicated to providing you with satisfying results that last for years to come.

Ultherapy®: The Ultimate Therapy for Anti Aging

shutterstock_189751217As we age, exposure to the sun’s harmful rays, combined with the
natural aging process, causes collagen fibers to break down. As these cells diminish, skin on the face and neck becomes wrinkled and saggy, causing us to look older than we are. To smooth the skin and achieve a more youthful appearance, women and men of all ages seek cosmetic procedures. As a popular non-surgical treatment, Ultherapy® effectively restores the appearance of the skin by regenerating collagen production.

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is an FDA-cleared treatment that lifts and tightens the skin on the eyebrows, neck, and under the chin. This non-surgical and non-invasive procedure utilizes ultrasound to effectively reduce the signs of aging. Unlike lasers that typically focus on the most superficial layers of skin, Ultherapy® safely penetrates the deepest layers of the skin to provide noticeably younger looking skin.

Ultherapy® can effectively improve the following:

  • Laxity in the eyebrows
  • Jawline definition
  • Sagging neck

How is Ultherapy® Performed?

Each Ultherapy® treatment is performed in our office and usually takes one to three hours to complete. A specialized device is placed on the targeted areas where ultrasound energy is delivered to the deepest layers of the skin, which stimulates the body’s ability to produce collagen to lift and tighten the skin.

What to Expect Immediately After Ultherapy® Treatment

Most patients can return to work and resume their daily activities immediately after the Ultherapy® treatment is complete. Your skin may appear slightly red or swollen, but these symptoms usually subside over the next couple of days.

How Long Ultherapy® Results Last

The results from one Ultherapy® treatment will continue to improve the appearance of the treated areas over the next two to three months as the body produces collagen to lift and tighten the skin. Many patients report seeing continual improvement in the appearance of their skin for up to six months.

Although the results do not produce the same effects as more invasive surgical procedures, such as a facelift or brow lift, Ultherapy® is a great cosmetic treatment option for those not yet wanting to undergo surgery.

To find out if Ultherapy® can be beneficial for you, please contact Timeless Plastic Surgery by calling (281) 242-8463 or filling out our online contact form to schedule your free consultation. We look forward to helping you achieve the natural-looking, youthful results you desire.
