A Little About Victory Medical
Victory Medical is based in Austin, TX and we only provide cosmetic treatments that are considered non-invasive. Achieving your aesthetic goals should not mean undergoing unnecessary pain and suffering, nor should it mean exposing yourself to unsafe or risky procedures.
Our full menu of non-invasive treatments means you can restore your body confidence while experiencing minimal risk and recovery times.
This is why we love CoolSculpting® for fat removal. You can rid yourself of those unwanted bulges in a safe and easy way.
What is CoolSculpting®?
Our Austin CoolSculpting® procedure uses a controlled cooling technique on targeted areas of the body. It consists of a machine with an attached pad. A thermal gel is then applied to the pad to ensure full contact with the body during use. The procedure essentially cools fat cells, so they crystalize (freeze) then die. The body then naturally processes and eliminates them.
What Can You Expect from a CoolSculpting® Procedure in Austin?
You will first discuss which areas to target with your specialist. Depending on how many areas are to be treated, the procedure will take between 30 – 60 minutes to complete. Different pad sizes may be used to treat different sized areas.
You will be asked to sit or lie on the treatment table, and the specialist will apply the gel pad. As the treatment begins, it is normal to feel intense cold. This typically dissipates after a few minutes. You may also experience a gentle pulling or cramping sensation.
After approximately 10 – 15 minutes, the treated area will become numb. When the treatment is completed, the area is massaged for a few minutes, during which you may feel a tingling sensation in the treated area, which will gradually return to normal.
Many clients are able to read or use their phones or tablet during treatment. Some clients even take a nap. After the session has finished, you will be able to go about your day as normal. Many of our clients pop in during their lunch break, then return to work as soon as the procedure is over.
Are the CoolSculpting® Results Permanent?
Since the treatment eliminates fat cells, the results can be permanent. However, you may need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results. When you go for your initial consultation with your specialist, you will receive a personalized treatment plan for your fat-freezing procedure.
Are There Risks I Should Be Concerned About?
The treatment is completely non-invasive, so there are no incisions made or any surface area to heal. This makes our Austin CoolSculpting® procedure extremely safe.
After treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. If you have had your submental (chin and neck) area treated, then you may experience a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat. All of these side effects typically disappear after a few days.
The machine also has a built-in freeze detector which causes it to shut down if the sensors pick up that a freeze is occurring.
