What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting provides the opportunity for you to do something about that stubborn fat that resists all diet and exercise. It is safe, effective, and provides permanent results*.
Brisbane's Number One Fat Reduction Procedure
What’s new with the generation two CoolSculpting procedure?
With newly shaped applicators, CoolSculpting can now reduce unwanted fat in common areas such as the flanks, the muffin top, the abdominal area, as well as the inner and outer thighs, saddlebag area, and more*.
The new CoolSculpting Mini takes this a step further, as it can also be applied under the chin to reduce unwanted submental fat and diminish the look of a double chin. The CoolSculpting Mini can be extended to almost any area of the body*. For example, sculpting the pectorals and chest area is one of the most popular procedures for men. This 3D form of sculpting can define the chest muscles and even produce a six pack*.
The new CoolSculpting Advantage reduces the procedure from 60 minutes to 35 minutes. This, coupled with the CoolSculpting Mini, enables us to sculpt areas such as the shoulder blades, the serratus anterior, and even target tiny bulges of fat around a woman's bra strap area*.
As you can see, the CoolSculpting technology is incredibly versatile. We can target any area that fits into an applicator!*
How does CoolSculpting work?
The initial CoolSculpting devices froze fat to -7° C; however, newer devices freeze fat to -11° over 35 minutes. This process is called cryolipolysis. At this subzero temperature the fat cells are permanently destroyed*, and then over time your body's immune system carries the dead fat tissue away and is flushed out by your own immune system. This whole procedure takes eight to fourteen weeks. The final results from CoolSculpting, CoolTech or SculpSure will are seen during weeks 12 to week 14.
How it Works?
The procedure is FDA-cleared and completely safe, and as it in non-invasive there is no need for surgery or downtime. Your physician will work with you to identify areas of concern and create a tailored plan to help achieve best results*.
Coolsculpting technology delivers highly controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells are frozen and destroyed, and your body naturally cleanses them out, resulting in a sculpted and shaped body with stubborn fat removed. In the weeks and months following your CoolSculpting procedure, you body will naturally process and eliminate the traumatised fat cells, and cleanse them away for good.*
When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, however they are still there, and can always expand once again when we begin to eat more or exercise less, allowing us to put on weight. CoolSculpting actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area – and they don’t come back again.*
During weight loss fat cells shrink in volume.
The number of fat cells remains the same.
CoolSculpting targets and eliminates fat cells.*
After the procedure, the treated area actually has fewer fat cells.*
How many sessions will I need to see results?
Why is the applicator size so important?
Many CoolSculpting clinics run generation one CoolSculpting devices with limited applicator sizes, which ultimately limits the patient's selection of treatment areas. At the Fiori Institute of Skin and Body, we have at least 16 differently sized applicators, which assures that we will find the perfect applicator for that trouble spot.
Bottom line? The better the fit, the better the result.*
What’s Cooltech and why is it sometimes a better choice than CoolSculpting?
Cooltech is the newest generation in cryolipolysis devices. However, despite the newer technology, the principles of cryolipolysis remain the same.
We primarily use both Cooltech and CoolSculpting devices because they have differently sized applications; the primary difference is that the Cooltech applicator is deeper. This deeper applicator has a higher-pressure vacuum, which allows for more of the fat to be targeted.*
There are so many options! What’s the best nonsurgical treatment for my unwanted fat?
Personalised treatments provide optimal results. We assess each patient and their expectations on an individual basis and carefully choose your applicator sizing together to give you the best results.
Personally, I (Dr. Davin Lim) have had SculpSure. Why? I wanted to decrease my waist size, but I didn’t feel I needed full body contouring. In this situation, I chose heat over cold. If I were to want contouring of my flanks and love handles, without a doubt, CoolSculpting or Cooltech would have been my device of choice.
The best outcome isn’t achieved through one device over another. It’s achieved by choosing the correct applicator and method for your goals and body.
