Unlimited access to the kitchen during the circuit breaker has contributed to the problem of weight gain. Its effects on our body are exacerbated by less physical activity and spending more time at home. Many of us, furthermore, are under a lot of stress, which is known to cause increased appetite and weight gain.
If you too have piled on some extra kilos, it is good to know that there are things you can do to shed that weight and get back in shape. You can start with simple steps, which mainly includes having an exercise routine and eating a balanced diet. Then, you can complement your efforts with non-invasive treatments like CoolSculpting.
At Cutis Laser Clinics, we offer CoolSculpting to eliminate stubborn fat bulges or those that are resistant to diet and exercise. This FDA-cleared procedure uses Cryolipolysis or fat freezing to target and eliminate fat cells. The result is a more sculpted physique with reduced thickness of fat layer.

What does CoolSculpting do to fat cells?
CoolSculpting involves the use of applicators that draw out the fat tissue. It exposes the fat cells to freezing temperatures, triggering apoptosis or natural cell death. This causes the treated cells to die naturally, which will then be cleared through the lymphatic system and processed as waste in the liver.
The procedure starts with marking the treated area to determine where to place the handpiece. For extra comfort and protection, a cooling gel pad will be placed on top of the skin. Then, the vacuum pressure will draw out the fat tissue between the cooling panels. This jumpstarts the process of natural removal in the body.
What results can I expect with CoolSculpting?
Some report seeing improvements in as early as three weeks after the first treatment. However, significant and dramatic results are visible within a period of 60 to 90 days or once the body has metabolized the fat cells. Keeping a healthy diet and exercise routine can help you maintain long-term stable results.
With CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are gone for good and will never come back. Several treatments are also needed to achieve optimal results. This only means that the more fat freezing procedures you undergo, more fat cells are eliminated and the better fat reduction results you’ll notice.
Does CoolSculpting hurt? Is it safe?
There may be a bit of discomfort during the procedure, but this depends on every patient. Rest assured, however, that it is only felt during the first few minutes wherein the CoolSculpting applicators suction the fat bulge. Slight pulling, mild pinching sensations, and localized cooling in the treated area may also be experienced.
You may be glad to know that the CoolSculpting device has safety mechanisms built in. It can detect if the skin is getting too cold, and if this is found to be the case, it shuts off automatically. CoolSculpting, furthermore, has a good safety record and is FDA-approved for areas such as the belly, flanks, thighs, upper arms, and bra and knee fat.
