What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® – Freezing Fat to Sculpt San Antonio’s Best Bodies.

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatments in San Antonio. CoolSculpting treatments uses advanced fat-freezing technology to freeze unwanted fat that is expelled naturally through the body with no surgery or downtime. Dr. Hernandez performs this FDA approved fat reduction treatment at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio.

 

How can it Help You?

What Dr. Hernandez’s San Antonio patients find most attractive about CoolSculpting is how it can reduce the stubborn fat they haven’t been able to lose despite their efforts in the gym and the kitchen—all without surgery or downtime. With CoolSculpting, Dr. Hernandez can create the stunning, natural-looking curves men and women want for their bodies by reducing up to 20-40 percent of unwanted and stubborn fat.


Dr. Hernandez recommends CoolSculpting for men and women within 30 pounds of their ideal weight, but struggling with specific problem areas, such as a belly pooch (pot belly), love handles, or a muffin top. CoolSculpting can be effectively used to reduce fat around the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. If a double chin is your biggest concern, Dr. Hernandez also performs submental fat reduction with CoolSculpting’s CoolMini™ applicator, as well as Kybella™ injections.

 

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The fat-freezing technology behind CoolSculpting is known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis causes underlying fat cells to freeze and crystallize (or die) without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. Your body then recognizes these dead fat cells and naturally flushes them from your body over time, resulting in a gradual slimming of the treated area. 
Without having to make a single incision, Dr. Hernandez will carefully place a fold of skin and unwanted fat within the curved CoolSculpting arm. Once in place, the device will administer a deep-cooling to the treatment area, causing the underlying fat cells to freeze. This process is repeated throughout the full treatment site to ensure well-balanced results.

 

What Happens After CoolSculpting?

After your CoolSculpting treatment, you will be able to get back to your regular schedule without any downtime. Some swelling or redness of the treatment site is to be expected, but should fade within the first day. 

The cryolipolysis process begins working as soon as your CoolSculpting session at our state-of-the-art San Antonio surgery center is finished. As the frozen fat cells are flushed from your body, you will begin noticing a gradual slimming of the treatment area. Most patients begin seeing results in as little three weeks with the most dramatic changes in their figure typically occurring between one to three months after CoolSculpting. Depending on your unique situation, Dr. Hernandez may recommend additional CoolSculpting sessions for the best, most natural-looking outcomes.

Freeze Away the Double Chin

CoolMini is a non-surgical fat-freezing treatment that can help turn an unflattering double chin into a beautiful frame for the face. With no surgery or downtime, the CoolMini treatment by CoolSculpting® is a popular treatment at Dr. Hernandez’s San Antonio cosmetic practice.

 

How Can CoolMini Help You?

Shrinking a double chin is a problem that can’t always be easily solved by just eating right or even jogging every day. For many people, the face is one of the last places from which they are able to lose fat—even once they’ve reached a stable weight and are happy with their overall size, a persistent double chin can still give them the appearance of being overweight or out-of-shape.

CoolMini solves this problem with ease, offering a non-surgical answer to the problem so you don’t have to miss any time from your otherwise busy schedule. With each CoolMini session, the problem fat will gradually freeze away, leaving you with the slimmer facial profile you desire.

 

How Does CoolMini Work?

CoolMini is an extension of the CoolSculpting procedure that has been specially designed to treat smaller problem areas such as beneath the chin. The secret to CoolMini is cryolipolysis—a process in which a deep-cooling is administered to the underlying fat cells, causing them to freeze, crystallize, and eventually be naturally flushed from your body. The best part is that while all of this is happening to the unwanted fat, the surrounding skin and tissue is left unharmed, making for quick treatments and no downtime.

 

What Happens After CoolMini?

What sets CoolMini apart from other double chin treatments is that it is completely non-invasive—no needles, no incisions. A CoolMini treatment with Dr. Hernandez normally takes just under an hour to perform and you will be able to get right back to your day with no more than some minor soreness.

Dr. Hernandez will work together with you to create a customized CoolMini treatment plan that will help achieve your unique goals. She may recommend a series of multiple CoolMini sessions for the the best possible outcome, but many begin noticing the results just 1-2 months after their initial session. As the frozen fat cells continue to be flushed from your system, you will notice your chin begin to take on a slimmer, well-shaped profile.
