Although liposuction can effectively remove fat, there are cases where a non-invasive procedure like CoolSculpting is a better option. This, of course, depends on factors like the area of concern and needs and goals of the patient. Despite being nonsurgical, CoolSculpting can reduce fat bulges and give you a contoured shape.
Getting to know CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling technology. It targets stubborn fat and kills fat cells without harming the skin or other tissues. Exposure to cooling temperatures triggers apoptosis or natural cell death, causing the cells to die and processed as waste in the liver.
The procedure works by using applicators of different sizes, which suction the fat bulges. These deliver direct cooling in the area of concern, which then freezes the fat cells to the point of elimination. When the fat cells die, they are removed from the body over time, gradually reducing the fat layer thickness.
Before the CoolSculpting procedure starts, the area will be marked and a cooling gel pad will be placed on the skin for extra protection. Then, the vacuum pressure from the CoolSculpting applicator will draw the fat tissue in. This will then trigger the process of natural fat removal in the body.
Body areas that may resolve better with CoolSculpting
As CoolSculpting offers gradual fat reduction, it also enables the skin to adjust and minimize potential skin sagging or looseness in the area of concern. This makes the procedure ideal than liposuction, especially in targeting pinchable fat bulges. Here are some of the areas that may resolve better with CoolSculpting.
Double chin – if you have noticeable fat bulges below your chin, CoolSculpting in Singapore is worth considering. It has the CoolMini applicator, which is specifically designed to treat smaller areas like double chin fat. It can freeze the fat bulges in the said area and other smaller fat deposits.
Bra fat or bra bulge – localized fats like bra bulges or excess back fat are responsive to a fat freezing treatment like CoolSculpting. This fat is located in the upper back area and becomes more prominent when wearing a bra.
Banana rolls – these are the pocket of fats that build up under the buttocks. CoolSculpting is an ideal choice for these extra fats when compared to a surgical removal, which can cause damage to the connective tissues.
Upper inner thighs – CoolSculpting fat freezing also works well in addressing fat accumulation around the inner thighs. It can spot reduce the fat in the area without needles or incision.
Arm and armpit fat – The CoolSculpting device has an applicator designed specifically for treating arms safely and effectively. It can reduce the fat layer without longer downtime or recovery period.
Results of CoolSculpting
Some patients see results as early as three weeks after the first treatment. Dramatic changes, however, can be seen within 60 to 90 days or once your body metabolized the frozen fat cells. It is important to maintain healthy habits to achieve long-term and stable results.
The treated fat cells are gone permanently, resulting in a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. It takes several treatments (depending on the area of concern) to see optimal results. This only means that the more sessions you undergo, the more fats are treated, leading to better results.
