Welcome to SpaBlack and my Practice,
Coolsculpting has come a long way since it was introduced, close to a decade ago. I waited until the technology improved which includes, larger applicators, reduced treatment times and new applicators for the saddlebags and neck. My highly trained staff are knowledgeable in many aspects of surgery and now have integrated Coolsculpting here in San Antonio.
Because I perform Regular Lipo (Tickle Lipo), Smartlipo, Tummy Tucks, and Mommy Makeovers, I’m in a great position to direct your care for surgery or CoolSculpting. Other MedSpas and Providers who do not have Plastic Surgeons at their Top, can only offer you Coolsculpting and other noninvasive technology.
Shedding unwanted fat is a problem that millions of Americans face each year. Diet and exercise alone do not always work, and extensive surgery is risky and expensive. At Spa Black, we offer a comfortable alternative to rid your body of unwanted fat – CoolSculpting® fat reduction treatments.
Located in the San Antonio metro area, Spa Black treats all skin types in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
What is CoolSculpting®?
It is a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same things — this is not actually the case. While weight loss simply reduces the size of the fat cells in your body, fat reduction completely removes fat cells from your body. CoolSculpting® utilizes controlled cooling technology to target and freeze fat cells in stubborn areas.
In the following weeks after treatment, the frozen fat cells are then naturally reduced by your body. Once these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. The remaining fat in the treated areas will condense to accommodate the reduced volume, resulting in thinner, more defined contours.
During treatment, a handheld device is held against treated areas. Pressure and intense cold are felt during this time, which will quickly subside. Most patients find CoolSculpting® sessions to be comfortable, and often read or even take naps throughout the treatment.
Is it Safe?
CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved for treatment in the love handles, abdomen and thigh areas. More than one million treatments have been performed with no major complications reported.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After a CoolSculpting® session, patients often report experiencing temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling or stinging. These are minor and will go away within a day or so after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
This procedure is not a treatment for obesity, and individuals with contraindicating medical conditions may not be advised to receive treatment. It will be determined during your initial consultation whether CoolSculpting® is right for you.
As CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical, normal activities may be resumed directly after treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The fat cells are expelled by the body, but future weight gain may adversely affect your results, although the weight may be more evenly distributed to other areas of the body instead of concentrated in treated areas.
