• CoolSculpting: Everything You Need to Know

CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved fat freezing treatment which means it is the safest, most effective non-surgical procedure at reducing fat cells from troublesome areas on almost any part of the body. With over 3 million treatments performed worldwide, let’s find out what’s involved in a CoolSculpting procedure from start to finish.

The CoolSculpting procedure works with cryolipolysis and focuses on cooling fat cells in the body to a point at which they are almost freezing. The freezing temperature of these cells is higher than cells in other surrounding tissue which means that the CoolSculpting treatment can be delivered safely and with exact precision.

Freeze detect technology is unique to the CoolSculpting procedure which no other fat freezing device can do. This technology triggers a sensored alarm if you skin is freezing rather than just your fat. This means you are protected from symptoms such as cold burns and ulcers, which are noted as symptoms on other fat freezing machines. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution, but is an excellent way to debulk large areas of fat from troublesome areas such as the abdomen, flanks, inner & outer thighs.

So what does the treatment process look like?

Before any CoolSculpting treatment with Dr Nyla Raja, you will always have a thorough consultation to make sure your treatment plan is personalised exactly to your wants and needs. Some photos will be taken as well to document before and after images. When it comes to the actual treatment, you will relax on the sofa whilst we attach the CoolSculpting machine. Once the machine is all set up, you’re free to read a book, work on your laptop, or even watch the television or Apple TV which we provide.

The treatment will take 1-2 hours so this is your time to sit back and relax. Once the treatment is over, we will give you a firm massage across the treated area. The CoolScuplting process is generally pain-free, however there can sometimes be a sensation of pressure or intense cold in the first few minutes. These feelings do go quickly and most people don’t experience any other discomfort throughout the entire treatment. On some occasions you may feel slight tugging, pinching or numbness in the treated area but this is only momentary and slight discomfort.

Does it really work?

The CoolSculpting procedure is minimally invasive so it won’t affect your daily life and you can go back to your normal activity right after your treatment is complete. You won’t even need to change your exercise or eating habits; just continue to follow a healthy balanced diet as normal.  Results from your CoolSculpting treatment may be seen in as little as 3 weeks. The maximum results will be seen around 2 months, with continuous improvements through to 6 months. The results take this time to be seen as your body continues to naturally process the injured fat cells for roughly 4 months after the treatment.
