CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-surgical body contouring system. It is used to help eliminate areas of stubborn subcutaneous fat that can be difficult to shift, even with diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting uses a process called cry lipolysis. It works by selectively freezing and subsequently damaging the fat cells underneath the skin. A proportion of the targeted fat cells are damaged beyond repair and subsequently die. Over the course of 12 weeks your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells. There are no needles or surgery involved in the CoolSculpting procedure.
1. During Treatment, the appropriate CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the area to be treated.
2. Controlled cooling then brings the temperature of the fat cells to the precise level at which they are damaged and die.
3. After treatment, the body naturally processes and removes the dead fat cells.
4. You may start seeing results at 6 weeks and final results around 12 weeks after treatment. Treated fat cells are gone for good.
*Blue = treated fat cells / white = untreated fat cells.
Many people are genetically predisposed to storing fat in particular areas, even when they have a healthy diet and do regular exercise. CoolSculpting provides a non-invasive option to remove stubborn fat from these problem areas. Non-invasive means there are no needles, no surgery, no anaesthetic and no hospital stays. CoolSculpting takes between 35-75 minutes, depending on the area of the body being treated. You have the potential to return to normal activities immediately after the CoolSculpting procedure.
CoolSculpting can be used to treat a range of areas including:
CoolSculpting can be done on the majority of people who have stubborn pockets of fat despite having a reasonably healthy diet and regular exercise. Your first step is to contact Skin Clinic Robina and make an appointment for a complimentary consultation. You will be asked a number of questions during your consultation to ensure that CoolSculpting is right for you.
The following effects can occur in the treatment area during and after a treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days.
During a treatment:
Immediately after treatment:
One to two weeks after a treatment:
Procedure precision – CoolSculpting technology delivers precisely the right level of controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin, whilst leaving the skin and other cells undamaged. This procedure in not invasive and does not use needles or surgery.
During your complimentary CoolSculpting consultation our technicians will discuss your treatment goals and any past medical history that may impact your treatment.
You will then undertake a full 360 degree body assessment using applicator planning templates and a customised treatment plan will be designed specifically for you including the number of treatments required per body area to achieve your desired results. You will also be given a full quote and advise for how many treatments you can expect and ways that you can maximise your results.
Once you have had your consult, we will schedule an appointment and take photos that will be used to monitor your progress.
During treatment a thermal gel pad or gel and an applicator will be applied to the targeted area for 30-45 minutes.
Once the procedure starts you will feel an intense cold sensation then some minor tugging which usually subsides once the area becomes numb. Once the cooling is finished and applicators are removed it is important to have the treated area massaged for 2 – 5 minutes to help breakdown frozen fat cells which are then naturally eliminated by the body.
Everyone’s experience is different and depends on the area/s treated and the number of treatment cycles performed on the day. For some people, the area treated can feel a little swollen or numb. For others it might be red or bruised and may feel tender to touch. All of these effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days.
Minimal Downtime: As the CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, most people return to work and their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Visible results: You may start to see results at 6 weeks and final results around 12 weeks after treatment. Specialised treatment plans may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.
CoolSculpting can be uncomfortable. But is generally painless.
Coolscuplting can cost upward of $399 per applicator. Depending on how many applicators are required for your specific concern. This will be discussed at your complementary body consultation.
Coolscultping is less invasive than liposuction, with a quicker recovery time, although the results of coolscultping aren’t as dramatic.
CoolSculpting is generally safe. However all possible complications and contraindications will be discussed at your complimentary consultation.
CoolSculpting uses a controlled temperature of -11 degrees celsius.
You must wait at least one month between treatments.
You can expect to see results within 4-12 weeks.
You will be assessed at your consultation to determine how many applicators/treatments you will require.
The results of CoolSculpting are permanent. Once coolscultping kills the fat cells, they do not come back.
No preparation is needed for your CoolSculpting treatment.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure and is not recommended for obese individuals. CoolSculpting is designed for fat deposits that will will not respond to Diet and exercise.
You won’t generally see your scale weight change after CoolSculpting.
You will likely notice only mild swelling post your cool sculpting treatment. Recovery involves your body naturally removing the frozen and now dead fat cells out of your body, therefore one of the best things you can do is drink plenty of water to help your system flush those fats cells out more effectively and quickly. Try to avoid alcohol or sugary drinks for up to a week following your treatment.
Another tip we recommend is wearing compression-style clothing, such as Spanx after the procedure. While a compression garment won’t necessarily create better overall results, some people feel better more quickly while wearing compression garments for 2-3 weeks following a treatment. This tightness increases lymphatic flow, not only helping the inflammatory cell removal process, but giving the body more strength again in the treated areas.
It is recommended not to exercise for 24 hours post a cool sculpting treatment.
Frozen cells are destroyed and removed by the body during the CoolSculpting procedure. Therefore, we would prefer not to have these inflammatory substances in circulation since they might potentially make their way into a mother’s breast milk.
Breastfeeding also affects women’s weight, so depending on the individual and weight gained during pregnancy, it can be more difficult to identify stubborn fat in some regions until after finishing breast feeding, so it may also be best to wait for this reason in order to get the best outcome possible.
