Coolsculpting



Coolsculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat deposits that seem resistant to diet & exercise.

How does it work?
Coolsculpting employs a process called cryolipolysis, in which fat cells are frozen using sub-zero temperatures. The fat cells crystallise as they are frozen, and gradually die off, and are naturally eliminated by the body. There will be a gradual fat reduction over several weeks as the body eliminates the fat.

Is the fat gone for good? Do I need to follow a strict diet?
Once the crystallised (frozen) fat cells are eliminated by the body, they are gone for good. There is no need for a special diet, although patients need to maintain their weight, and should adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise. This will enable patients to experience the full benefit of Coolsculpting.

Which areas can be treated?
Commonly treated areas include the tummy, flanks (muffin tops/love handles), thighs, bra rolls, back fat and upper arms. Coolsculpting is also effective for reducing the double chin.

What is the treatment like?
Dr Sng will do an assessment of the area to be treated and identify the optimal applicator position for the procedure. In the first few minutes of the treatment, you may feel a pulling or tugging sensation, and then the area starts to feel cold. As the cooling effect takes place, the treated area becomes numb. Treatment takes 35-60 minutes. Massage is performed at the end of treatment, which helps to break down the crystallised fat.

What will I feel after treatment and when will I see results?
After treatment, it is normal to have temporary redness; sometimes there may be bruising. These are temporary and resolve over a few days. The treated area may feel firm and slightly numb or tingling usually for a few days, sometimes up to a few weeks. Results can be seen as early as a month after, with more visible results 2 months after treatment.

How many treatments do I need?
Typically, 2 treatments for each area will give more significant fat reduction. However, patients experience fat reduction even after a single treatment.
