How does CoolSculpting work?
When exposed to controlled cooling, your fat cells undergo a process of crystallisation and eventual destruction. This results in a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fatty layer. The body’s normal metabolic process gradually removes the fat cells in the treated area – a process similar to the elimination of fat from digested food.
During the treatment, a cooling applicator is applied to the skin’s surface, delivering precisely-controlled cooling to selectively target and eliminate the fat cells in an area. The applicator remains on your skin for 30-60 minutes per treated area. During this time you’ll be able to sit or lie comfortably and read, work on your laptop, listen to music or watch a DVD. We offer the most up-to-date Cool Advantage handpieces which reduce treatment time and discomfort. CoolSculpting is non-invasive fat reduction procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Treatment?
The CoolSculpting treatment is ideal for those at a stable weight with small to moderate areas of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment, it is a fat reduction treatment. The procedure also offers a quick, effective and affordable treatment option with minimal associated discomfort and downtime for those seeking non-invasive alternatives to surgery.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
The FDA cleared CoolSculpting in 2010 and it has been analysed in controlled clinical studies and described in more than 100 clinical publications. CoolSculpting is the number 1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world with over 6 million procedures performed.
CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precise and controlled cooling to target fat cells and leave skin unaffected. CoolSculpting systems have built-in safety features to stop the cooling if sensors detect that the skin is too cold. We are one of the few CoolSculpting Perth clinics which offer both surgical and non-surgical options for fat reductions.
