You probably know, and love, Debra Messing for her role as Grace on the comedy Will & Grace (which is having a special 12-episode revival). But just like any other woman, she too has those ‘things’ about herbody that she didn’t like, mainly a pouch of fat on her stomach (her words, not mine).

“When I learned about the CoolSculpting technology and how simple, easy and painless the treatment was, I was incredibly intrigyed. This is about smoothing out the bumps that every person has that might bother them that other people may not notice,” Debra says. “Even if you eat clean and are active, there’s an option that doesn’t require being cut open or going to the hospital. The idea that you can freeze fat cells and they can disintegrate and then slowly leave the body is an incredible thing no matter your age.”

Once she made up her mind to have the noninvasive treatment performed on her stomach by her dermatologist, she went full force and never looked back. “My dermatologist put the nozzle on my stomach, which was very cold at first before it went numb. For the next 35 minutes, I sat on my phone. Then, when it was all done I got dressed and went back to work—that was it,” she says.

Debra had two treatments done and although she’s only about six weeks out—it can take up to three months to see the full effect—she says she’s already seeing changes.

“To me, this treatment is like a miracle worker—it’s incredible. It’s safe and fast and I wanted to spread the word. And, I love the message behind it,” she says. “It’s about empowerment and doing something for yourself. It’s not a whole reshaping of your body and making you something that you’re not. It’s about being a better version of yourself.”

Months after you lose weight, muffin tops, love handles and double chins can still be a problem. Luckily, there's a simple way to get rid of coolsculptingstubborn fat deposits that don't involve surgery. Baton Rouge and Prairieville, LA, dermatologist, Dr. Ann Zedlitz, explains how CoolSculpting can improve your appearance.

Freezing the fat away

Fat cells don't like cold temperatures. In fact, when they're exposed to extreme cold, they die. Because CoolSculpting targets fat cells only, healthy cells adjacent to fat cells aren't harmed by the treatments. When fat cells freeze, they crystallize and are metabolized by your body. The remains of the cells are eliminated by your body over the next several weeks or months.

Coolsculpting offers an effective alternative to liposuction

Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting requires no incisions and no anesthesia. CoolSculpting offers a more gradual way to eliminate fat deposits. Each visit may reduce fat deposits by as much as 20 percent. Most people need a few visits to obtain the desired results. Treatments last one to three hours, depending on how many areas are treated.

CoolSculpting targets multiple areas

CoolSculpting is very effective in reducing abdominal and flank fat deposits, it's also ideal for reducing fats in other parts of the body, including:

  • Back Fat: Have you given up wearing form-fitting clothing because your back fat is on display? CoolSculpting eliminates the rolls on your back.
  • Double Chin: It's frustrating to see the numbers on the scale decrease every week, yet notice no difference in your double chin. Freezing the fat deposits will help tone your neck and eliminate the fat.
  • Buttocks Rolls: The treatment is also very effective at targeting rolls of fats under the buttocks.
  • Thigh Fat: Coolsculpting can thin your thighs by reducing the fat in your inner and outer thighs.

What happens during a CoolSculpting treatment?

Before your treatment begins at our Baton Rouge office, a gel pad will be applied to your skin to protect it from the extreme temperatures. After the pad is applied, the CoolSculpting applicator is placed over the area. Vacuum suction holds the skin and fat in place during the treatment. You'll feel a burst of cold when the device is activated, but that cold feeling will soon be replaced by numbness. After your treatment, you can immediately return to your usual activities. Bruising and tenderness are common after CoolSculpting treatment, but usually only last a few weeks.
