Freeze Away Love Handles on your Lunch Break

Fat cells can now be diminished in extreme temperatures! CoolSculpting is the coming Ice Age for all pinchable fat! Dr. Robert Whitfield of the Breast and Body Center of Austin describes how the treatment won him over and why his office is bringing this option to the people of Austin.

With CoolSculpting, problem areas are targeted directly. Applicators are applied to the surface of the skin where they proceed to freeze the fat cells, causing them to die and, over time, melt away.

The technique is noninvasive with zero incisions. The approach is purely topical. However, there is a “recovery” time as it can be about two months before results are fully realized.

The Process

Dr. Whitfield knows just what to expect with CoolSculpting because before he brought it into his own practice, he tried it!

He found it to be so effective that he purchased two machines. Patients can address two areas simultaneously – like both love handles! He is also equipped with two types of applicators (curved & flat) that allow access to any part of the body without issue.

Each session takes about an hour but won’t distract you from working on your laptop, talking on your phone, or otherwise taking your mind elsewhere.  Dr Whitfield’s two machines are giving patients two hours worth of CoolSculpting in one hour.

The Results

Both men and women are benefiting equally from CoolSculpting. Offices that offer the procedure tend to see a boost in the number of male patients.

Dr. Whitfield says “it’s just like wearing an ice pack.” But this “ice pack” can easily help you lose an inch or two around your waist. It is recommended that patients undergo two sessions (per area) to achieve the best results.

Two visits, two inches, and zero downtime – not even during the procedure. “It’s really kind of perfect for a lot of busy people.”
