What is CoolSculpting™?

April 23,2012 | Posted by: cmc-dashboard

CoolSculpting™ is a new procedure that uses controlled cooling to target localised fat cells without damage to surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting was developed by the same researchers and scientists who discovered laser hair removal.

CoolSculpting™ is a non-invasive way to gently reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. The fat cells break down over two to four months and are gradually eliminated from your body. Just like our laser treatment Brisbane, CoolSculpting™ requires no pre-procedure preparation and it is comfortable for most patients. Most patients find that one or two treatments fully address their goals.

During your first appointment with the doctor, the exact areas that are suitable for treatment will be discussed. An appointment will then be made with a registered nurse for the procedure. A specially designed applicator will be placed on the targeted area and you will feel a pulling sensation. Once the treatment begins, you will feel a cooling sensation in the target area. This sensation goes away in a few minutes.

There is no recovery time after the procedure which allows you to return to your normal activities on the same day as treatment. Some experience a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area lasting one to eight weeks.

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your procedure. However you will experience the most significant results eight to twelve weeks after treatment.

CoolSculpting™ is rapidly becoming a substitute for surgery for stubborn small areas of fat that can’t be removed with exercise.
