Coolscultping is the world's Number 1 non-invasive fat removal system, and the only FDA cleared fat freezing system which permanently removes fat cells from the body using Cryolipolysis
How does Coolsculpting work?
The device exposes unwanted pockets of fat to cold temperatures, this then causes many of the fat cells in the treatment area to crystallise triggering natural cell death.
Once the cold temperatures has destroyed the fat cells they are gradually eliminated by the body in the same way that dietary fats are broken down, over the next 8-12 weeks. As the fat cells are eliminated gradually by the body (the same as eating one French fry per day), no adverse effects have been recorded in relation to liver function and cholesterol levels. The FDA approval validates both the safety and efficacy of the device.
What happens on the day of treatment
On the day of treatment we normally advise patients to come wearing comfortable, lose fitting clothing.
Our Coolsculpting practitioner will need to draw on the treatment area with a black marker pen to ensure that the applicator is placed in the correct position. The applicator uses a vacuum which draws the tissue into the treatment cup- this is the fat cells are exposed to the cold temperatures causing natural cell death.
Initially during the vacuum process patients will experience a sharp tug and pressure. This can feel quite unusual to begin with. However once the cooling process begins this soon dissipates.
We encourage patients to bring in any equipment that they would like to use such as an IPOD/IPAD or kindle. Patients will be lying down on a treatment couch for the duration of the treatment.
You can eat and drink as normally prior to, during and following the treatment.
