About CoolSculpting Elite®
Unwanted Body Fat Treatment
CoolSculpting in Southlake, Texas, is an FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment.
This tailored treatment targets stubborn fat that does not decrease with diet or exercise. CoolSculpting in Southlake, Texas is not a weight loss procedure. It’s a fat reduction procedure. CoolSculpting Elite essentially freezes the fat cells beneath the skin in a gentle and controlled manner. These frozen cells then die a natural death and are disposed of through the kidneys.
Many people consider CoolSculpting Elite a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction, a different fat removal procedure that involves surgery. Additionally, many patients will receive both liposuction and CoolSculpting Elite; these two treatments can work together to bring you amazing contouring results.

Does It Hurt?
Discomfort with CoolSculpting in Southlake, Texas varies from patient to patient, but most describe it as light to mild and tolerable discomfort.
Some patients have described the sensation as light tugging, pulling or pinching. We compare the feeling at the beginning of the procedure to the feeling of putting your hand in ice cold water. Initially it’s uncomfortable, but then it becomes numb. This is what happens when the applicator is placed and freezes the treatment area; since the cold is numbing the area, there is no need for anesthesia.
Keep in mind that treatment areas will vary between patients and everyone has a different pain tolerance. During your procedure, you’re welcome to either sit up or lie down, and watch TV, listen to music, or read.
How it Works
Before your treatment, your CoolSculpting Elite specialist will chat with you about your treatment area(s), goals, and expectations. Your specialist will then lightly pinch your areas of unwanted fat to determine whether they can be targeted with CoolSculpting in Southlake. If you’re a candidate for treatment, we will take your “before” photos.
Mark & Measure
Your CoolSculpting Elite specialist will mark and measure the treated areas to determine which applicator is best for you. We have several different applicators of all shapes and sizes, offering the most versatile fat eliminating treatments. We’ll likely use multiple different applicators to best customize treatment based on your concern areas.
Place the Gel Sheet
After we’ve marked and measured your treatment area(s) and determined the best applicators, we will place a gel sheet on each treatment area to protect your skin from the cooling technology. We will then place the treatment applicator cup over the stubborn fat and start the freezing process.
Wait for 35 to 75 minutes
Over a duration of 35 to 75 minutes (depending on the areas treated), the applicator will use gentle suction to draw your fat tissue into the cooling cups, which isolates and freezes the fat.
Massage the Frozen Fat
Once the treatment cup is removed, your skin will be red, cold, and firm. We gently massage the treated area to break up the frozen tissue.
Fat is Removed By the Body
Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally processed and removed by the body. Depending on the area treated, you may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve your desired amount of fat removal.
We typically recommend somewhere between 4 and 8 sessions to see maximum results.
