Trim the Fat this New Year with CoolSculpting

February 02,2015 | Posted by: Aimee Surtenich

Is your New Year’s resolution to trim the fat? We spotlight CoolSculptingTM, a non-surgical way to shift love handles and sculpt the body.

Getting rid of those post-Christmas love handles can be an uphill battle. Even when sticking to a sensible diet and exercise regimen, many of us experience localised pockets of fat on the tummy, hips and thighs that just won’t budge.

Thankfully there is CoolSculptingTM, a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to reduce stubborn fat and fast track your journey to a trimmer and more sculpted body.

How does CoolSculptingTM work?

CoolSculptingTM is a non-invasive, clinically-proven procedure to selectively reduce stubborn fat in problem areas using a patented cooling technology.

It’s the “cool” way to lose fat, using a process called cryolipolysis to deliver almost-freezing temperatures to permanently destroy subcutaneous fat cells without traumatising the surrounding tissues or harming the skin. It triggers a natural “cascade” of fat destruction, with the body expelling the destroyed cells over the ensuing months to deliver gradual results.

What happens during CoolSculptingTM treatment?

During treatment, the CoolSculptingTM applicator head is placed onto the fat pocket. The applicator acts like a vacuum to suck the area into position and direct the cold temperature to the target fat cells under the skin. The initial suction may induce a tingling sensation but typically subsides as the cool temperature numbs the area.

Each CoolSculptingTM treatment usually takes around 60 minutes, although a new flat applicator for outer thighs is applied for two hours. There is typically no downtime but some patients may experience temporary redness or numbness in the treated area. Small areas of fat may only need a single treatment, however for greater amounts of fat reduction, more treatments may be required.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculptingTM?

The best candidates for CoolSculptingTM are people at or near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly and have stubborn fat that does not respond to a healthy lifestyle.

The procedure works best on isolated fad pads or modest bulges on the lower abdomen (“muffin top”), hips, and inner and outer thighs. It can also successfully reduce fat on the arms and back.

With minimal downtime, CoolSculptingTM offers suitable patients a non-surgical means of refining and sculpting their contours.
