Minimize unwanted bulges through nonsurgical fat reduction

 

 

What is CoolSculpting®?

 

CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis as it is scientifically known, is a non-invasive fat reduction/body sculpting treatment that effectively freezes away unwanted fat bulges on the body. It is often considered to be the non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The treatment is a good option for those who are looking for a safe and effective procedure to achieve a flatter tummy and slimmer arms, thighs and waistline.
 

How does CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq® work?

 
 
CoolSculpting works by freezing and destroying localized fat deposits by applying temperatures in the range of +5 to −5°C to the skin. Fat cells, when exposed to controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, undergo a gradual reduction and cell death through a process called apoptosis. This is a completely normal process – the average human adult loses between 50 to 70 billion cells every day due to apoptosis. The dead cells are then absorbed through the lymphatic system and excreted from the body. The whole process takes between two to four months, which is when results can best be seen.
 

How does CoolAdvantage™ by Zeltiq® work?

 
 

What areas can be treated?

The treatment can be applied to pockets of resistant fat on: 
- the abdomen and waist (including post-pregnancy loose skin and bulging) 
- the lower back i.e. “love handles” 
- back fat and bra roll 
- buttocks 
- upper arms 
- inner and outer thighs

- smaller areas with fat deposits 

 

Do you treat double chins with Coolsculpting?

 
Yes, we do. IYAC offers CoolMini, which has a cup-like applicator to hold on to small pockets of fat. CoolMini allows us to treat small fat bulges such as:

1. Double chins – to reduce fat under the chin
2. Bra bulges – to reduce small bits of fat above the bra strap
3. Knee fat – to reduce sagging fat above the knees

Treatment requests for double chins are common as double chins can be found on both slim and overweight individuals. Expect a more V-shaped jawline after one to two treatments. The CoolMini is as easy and tolerable as using CoolSculpting on other parts of the body.
 

What happens during the CoolSculpting® procedure?

 
A non-invasive applicator delivers specific controlled cooling to the treatment area leaving surface skin tissue unaffected. The device draws the fat bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull.

 

 

Who is an ideal candidate for this treatment?

 

Good candidates are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly but who have specific fat deposits that have not responded to a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight loss program for overweight individuals or for all-over body fat reduction.

 

Is CoolSculpting safe?

 

Yes. It has an EU CE mark and is US FDA approved.
 

What do treatments feel like?

 

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates and you can rest comfortably while the device works. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptops or even take a nap during the treatment. As a result of the cooling, you may experience numbness and redness but this usually fades within a few hours. No anaesthesia is required.

 

Does it really work?

 

On average, one procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. Patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks later with the most dramatic results occurring two to four months later. Most patients benefit from multiple treatment sessions to get the maximum fat loss possible. 

 

Why is CoolSculpting so popular?

 

- No needles, surgery or downtime
- No telltale signs of having “work done”
- No pain; you can sleep during the treatment
- Safe – it has an EU CE mark and is US FDA approved
- Simple – it’s an easy solution to a very common problem
