At Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa in Tasmania, we are the bearer of good news: we can help you say goodbye to muffin tops and love handles and say hello to a slimmer, more confident you!
We know that no matter how much effort you put into eating healthy and exercising, it’s virtually impossible to lose that unwanted fat. You’re forced to just live with it or opt for surgery, which is why we developed CoolSculpting®. In this article we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you learn about the treatment.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive and innovative way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Is it similar to liposuction?
No. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting® involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. However, treatment outcomes are similar: the elimination of fat cells as a result of the CoolSculpting Procedure is expected to last about as long as fat cells removed by invasive procedures such as liposuction.
Is it safe?
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.
How does it work?
Coolsculpting ® is based on the principle that fat cells are more vulnerable to energy extraction (cooling) than surrounding tissues. A non-invasive applicator is attached to the targeted procedure area to extract energy from the underlying fat tissue, while protecting the skin, nerves, muscles and other tissue. The cooled fat cells undergo apoptosis (controlled cell death) and are gradually eliminated, reducing the thickness of the fat layer, for a slimmer appearance. This exposure to cooling causes the fat cells to begin a process of natural removal, gently eliminated through the body’s normal metabolism process, like fat from food.
Where do the fat cells go?
The fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body over the following few months after treatment. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed, much like fat from food. Because the lipid clearance process is gradual there is no harmful change in blood lipids or liver function
How many treatments do I need to see results?
Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit.. Is there
How long will my results last?
Patients who experience fat layer reduction find results to last at least six months after the CoolSculpting treatment.
Is there any downtime involved?
Coolsculpting® is non-surgical, medically cleared, and there’s usually little to no downtime whatsoever. Patients are not required to take additional supplements or medications following the treatment, but are asked to maintain their weight with normal diet and exercise for stabilise and long-term results.
