CoolSculpting® by Allergan is a FDA-approved, non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction treatment that work effectively on stubborn fats which resists all exercising and dieting. A good alternative for liposuction and a gentler approach with no downtime for eliminating fat cells underneath the skin, CoolSculpting uses a patented Cryolipolysis (Fat Freeze) that ensures safety.
How Does Coolsculpting Works?
The procedure is based on the scientific principle of “Cryolipolysis”, a controlled cooling method in which the fat cells are frozen to levels that disrupts them, without causing injury to the skin or surrounding tissue. The crystalised fat cells are eventually eliminated by the body naturally.
The results are proven, noticeable and lasting with up to 25% of fat cells removed in the treated area each time.The remaining fat cells will become condensed and the fat layer will be reduced. The reduction of the fat layer in the specific target areas will improve your overall appearance.
Which Areas of Fats Can Be Treated?
CoolSculpting can be used to eliminate fat where the bulges really bother you. A customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top.
Here are some areas that you can get treated for:
- Fats on Body Arms
- Abdomen Fats and Flanks (e.g. Love Handle)
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Back or Bra Fats
- Butt Cheeks
- Knee Fats
Double Chin (CoolMini)
Double chin forms when a subcutaneous layer of fat sags over time around the neck. These fats can now be removed using CoolMini (a small applicator using the same technology as CoolSculpting®) that has been FDA approved for minimizing the appearance of fat under the chin without needles or downtime.
What is The Difference Between Fat Reduction and Weight Loss?
It’s a common delusion that fat reduction and weight loss are the same. Well, they’re not. As we work out or watch our diet to lose our body weight, our fat cells only become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same.
When we gain weight again, those fat cells become larger. On the other hand, CoolSculpting procedure and treatment reduces the number of fat cells in the desired treated areas. As a matter of fact, fat cells that are no longer there don’t have a chance to grow at all. They are safely and naturally eliminated from your body. No surgery, no downtime.
Can CoolSculpting be Combined with Other Body Treatments?
Coolsculptingcan be used together with HIFUs to firm and tighten overlying skin for a lifted countenance and toned body.
EMxpert Body Sculpting uses electromagnetic energy is our body sculpting program that contract muscles and enhance fat breakdown. For patients who not only want to lose excess fats but to have a sculpted abdomen and toned buttocks and thighs, they can combine the two treatments together for greater results.
How Long DoesThe Treatment Procedure Take?
CoolSculpting can be done in 35 mins for one area by using the CoolAdvantage applicator.
At Ageless Medical, we use of dual applicators and treatment time can be shortened by half to 35 mins for treatments done on larger areas (like the outer and inner thighs) and treatments done for two different areas.
Is There Any Downtime or Side Effects?
There is no downtime and patients may resume normal activities after treatment. Patients may only experience mild soreness or tenderness in the treated areas after each treatment for the first 2 weeks.
When Can I See Results?
Patients may start to see results in as early as 3 weeks but will experience the most dramatic results after 1 to 3 months. The body will continue to process the injured fat desposits for approximately 4 months after the procedure.
