Freeze away fat to reshape your body
We all have experienced pockets of fat that do not seem to go away, no matter how much we diet or exercise. Traditionally, when people wanted to remove those stubborn pockets of fat around their stomach, back, thighs, arms, and chins, they would have to resort to expensive surgical operations with significant risks and downtime. Now, a revolutionary fat loss procedure called CoolSculpting® has emerged and changed the industry.
Medical Laser & Aesthetics offers CoolSculpting in The Woodlands to patients in search of a non-invasive fat loss treatment to sculpt the body of their dreams! CoolSculpting safely targets and freezes fat cells beneath the skin. When these cells are exposed to such low temperatures, they shrink and die, and are naturally disposed of by the body for good. You can sit back, relax, and say goodbye to your most stubborn fat thanks to CoolSculpting in The Woodlands.

How it Works
Years ago, medical doctors at Harvard discovered that fat cells can be selectively targeted and frozen through a process called cryolipolysis. These frozen fat cells die, get reabsorbed by the body, and are eliminated as waste all while not disrupting or harming the surrounding skin, muscle, and nerve cells. Cryolipolysis has since been modified for the cosmetic industry, bringing us this exciting body contouring technique known as CoolSculpting.
When you come to Medical Aesthetics & Laser for CoolSculpting in The Woodlands, you will recline in a comfortable chair while we place a small gel pad and applicator on the treatment area.
Your skin (and the excess fat we are targeting) will be sucked up between the device’s cooling panels which will then work to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells. You are welcome to read a book, catch up on emails, or even take a nap!
Once the machine has frozen the fat cells solid, we will massage the treatment area to break up the crystallized cells to encourage faster reabsorption and elimination. Over the next few weeks, you’ll be able to watch the fat disappear!
What to expect after CoolSculpting in The Woodlands
Most patients typically report minimal discomfort during the procedure and they are able to return to their daily routine immediately after their treatment. It will take your body a few weeks to properly undergo cryolipolysis and for results to appear.
Typically, results begin to be seen after 4-6 weeks and will dramatically improve for 12-16 weeks following your treatments.
I have been going to Angela at Medical Aesthetics and Laser for over a year. Angela is extremely competent and thorough in delivering excellent customer service. She is also knowledgeable in what treatments are needed to get the best results for a beautiful and younger appearance. I am very pleased with my results and highly recommend Angela at Medical Aesthetics and Laser. I would never go anywhere else.
I have been a client of Medical Aesthetics and Laser for the last few years. Prior to this, I tried several other clinics and doctor’s offices (including a couple of top plastic surgeons in Houston & The Woodlands) for Botox and facial treatments, but nothing can compare to results I have obtained with Allison and Kelli. I consider Allison to be both an expert and an artist in the way that she administers Botox and Dermal Fillers. She gives me a youthful appearance without causing me to look unnatural or contrived. I have used Kelli for laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and facials. Since adhering to her skin care regimen, my skin has never been as clear and healthy as it is now. I feel confident in recommending Medical Aesthetics and Laser to anyone who has the desire to improve their appearance, and gain confidence in the image that they project to others.
CoolSculpting is recommended for adults who are physically and mentally healthy and within 20 pounds of their ideal weight with small areas of stubborn fat that do not go away with diet and exercise.
Those who are looking for significant weight loss or are morbidly obese should not turn to CoolSculpting as a treatment option. Additionally, if you have poor skin elasticity or suffer from dermatitis or eczema in the treatment areas, you should also seek alternative treatments for your stubborn fat.
How many sessions needed to achieve the desired results will vary from patient to patient. Most patients choose to have at least two CoolSculpting treatments on the same area while some may require up to four treatments on an area.
Since adults don’t produce new fat cells, and the fat cells are destroyed and flushed out during each treatment, CoolSculpting results are long lasting and essentially permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after the procedure, the remaining fat cells in the area will expand, but will typically be more evenly distributed over the body and fat cannot collect in the treated area.
Patients typically report feeling intense cold, tingling, and numbness with some pinching and pulling sensations while receiving CoolSculpting. These feelings are reported as very manageable and typically resolve after the first ten minutes of the procedure. After the procedure is over, you may experience some tingling and aching as circulation returns to the treated area, as well as some tenderness and swelling.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your CoolSculpting procedures up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
