What is CoolSculpting?
When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we do fat reduction using methods like cryolipolysis or fat freezing with CoolSculpting®, we get rid of our fat cells permanently.
Fat reduction does not significantly change your weight; it changes your “shape”. Your clothes will fit better, and areas such as “love handles” and back fat, which are hard to remove through exercise, can be eliminated. It can also treat hard to reach areas like the double-chin, knee, and bra-line area.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) that utilises cryolipolysis technology that targets only fat cells. The frozen and crystallised fat cells are eliminated and the fat cells are gone for good. With the CoolSculpting device, the doctor can perform spot reduction and body contouring with the kind of precision that is impossible with any spot toning exercise.
Which areas can it treat?
Thanks to the versatility offered by the CoolSculpting family of applicators, you can target all kinds of stubborn spots, freeze the fat, lose it, and never see it again. The results are natural and there is no downtime. The CoolMini and CoolPetite applicators, for instance, can target small and hard to reach areas to remove unwanted fat in the submental (double-chin), upper-arm, knees, and bra-line areas.
The CoolSculpting applicators come in different sizes, allowing the doctor to treat even hard-to-reach areas:
CoolSmooth is for non-pinchable areas like the abdomen and flanks while the CoolSmooth Pro is a surface applicator for outer thighs.
What is the CoolAdvantage advantage?
The CoolAdvantage applicator features an enhanced cup design as well as a larger cooling area, which increases direct tissue contact, to give patient comfort. Treatment time is also reduced by half with the CoolAdvantage applicator.
How to reduce treatment time with QuadSculpting?
For time-starved individuals, Halley Medical Aesthetics offers QuadSculpting which is the use of four CoolSculpting machines at the same time to reduce treatment time by 85%.
How is fat reduction different from weight loss?
It’s a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. Fat reduction does not significantly change your weight; the result appears on your measuring tape. When you contour your body through fat reduction, your clothes fit better.
When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller but the number of fat cells remains the same. We recommend pairing CoolSculpting with a doctor-monitored weight management programmes for effective, optimal weight loss, body contouring, and health management.
