What is CoolSculpture?
CoolSculpture is a game-changing innovation in body contouring. This safe, painless and non invasive treatment removes fat cells from targeted areas of the body, giving noticeable results that look completely natural.
Known as cryolipolysis, or more commonly as ‘fat freezing’, the procedure incorporates the controlled application of cooling energy to target areas. It involves absolutely no surgery, no incisions, no needles, no anaesthesia and zero recovery time -meaning you can get on with your normal life right away.
Who is it For?
The demand for non surgical fat reduction treatments is at an all-time high, with many people looking to lose unwanted bulges that just won’t budge. As we age and our metabolism slows down, it becomes increasingly difficult to lose this type of fat through diet and exercise alone.
CoolSculpture offers an effective solution that works alongside a healthy lifestyle to deliver permanent results – all without the need for invasive procedures.
How Does Fat Freezing Work?
Fat cells are more vulnerable to cold than other tissue in the body. This means that controlled cooling can selectively freeze them without affecting surrounding tissues.
CoolSculpture uses a specialised applicator to transmit cooling energy to a target area, which causes fat cells to freeze, crystallise and die. Per treatment, up to 30% of fat cells in the area can be permanently destroyed.
The body then transports these cells to the lymphatic system, where they are processed by the liver and released naturally from the body. Once this process is initiated, your body will break down the crystallised fat cells continuously over 6 to 12 weeks.
Provided that good diet and exercise is maintained, CoolSculpture results should be permanent.
How Long Does it Take?
For best results, a minimum of 2-3 sessions is advised. While individual results may vary, you should see noticeable fat loss within one to three months of treatment.
The procedure is non invasive, so any discomfort will be minimal. Some patients find the sensation slightly uncomfortable initially,
but adjust quickly.
Following the Cool Sculpting procedure, you may experience some temporary discomfort – redness, numbness, tingling, swelling, bruising or mild pain. In many cases these will disappear within days, but may take up to a few weeks to subside completely.
