What is CoolSculpting®?
If you are a bit of glutton and find it hard to stop yourself from trying all the tantalising variety of food that is available, you’ll be glad to know that liposuction is not the only way to reduce fats.
You can now look forward to a less invasive treatment that doesn’t involves knives or needles. Introducing CoolSculpting (a.k.a cryolipolysis) – an aesthetic treatment that removes areas or pockets of body fat by freezing the fat cells. Similar to Liposuction, doctors use CoolSculpting to remove targeted areas of fat that is difficult to remove by diet and exercise alone.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that reduces fat through cryolipolysis (using freezing temperatures to break down fats). The cold does not damage other cells in the same way it does fat cell, therefore by doing CoolSculpting it will not damage the skin or underlying tissue nearby the treated area. Once the fat cells have been destroyed by freezing, they are gradually broken down and removed from the body by the liver.
Benefits of CoolSculpting：
CoolSculpting is best suited to those who are already doing some exercise on areas that are hard to lose despite working out (for example love handles).
Contrary to popular believe, after doing CoolSculpting, you will still need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to maintain your new figure. It is not a miracle cure and people should be aware that it does not see a complete removal of fat.
Conditions that rule out CoolSculpting include:
During the procedure, the doctor will place the applicator (head/tip) of the CoolSculpting machine on the skin above the area of fatty tissue. The tip may feel slightly cold. Once the applicator has been adjusted, the cold temperature will numb the targeted area. Some people report that they feel a cooling sensation.
Depending on which CoolSculpting applicator you have chosen, the treatment could take between 30 minutes to 1 hour. For the duration of the treatment, you may choose to bring something along for entertainment as it’s pretty relaxing. You can bring a book or even do your work whilst the machine does its job.
