What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. Unlike surgical procedures, CoolSculpting does not involve incisions or anaesthesia. Instead, it utilises the principle of cryolipolysis, in which fat cells are cooled to a temperature that renders them non-functional and allows them to be naturally processed out of the body.

Studies show that CoolSculpting can result in a 20-25% reduction of fat in the targeted area with a single treatment. It is one of the most well-known and successful aesthetic technologies to date.

What Is the Science Behind CoolSculpting?

Fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting takes advantage of this difference in sensitivity, ensuring that only the fat cells are affected while the skin, muscles and nerves remain unharmed.

During a CoolSculpting session, an applicator is placed on the treatment area to deliver precise cooling to the underlying fat. The cold temperature crystallises the fat cells, initiating a natural cell death process known as apoptosis. The treated fat cells are then gradually broken down and naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system.

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting Fat Reduction?

CoolSculpting has stood the test of time as a body contouring procedure. There are many reasons for its continued popularity, including:

  • Targeted fat reduction in stubborn areas
  • Non-surgical
  • No needles or incisions
  • No need for anaesthesia
  • FDA-cleared
  • Little to no downtime
  • Natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting fat cell elimination

What Areas Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can be applied to the following areas of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Under buttocks
  • Under the jawline
  • Under the chin
  • Bra band area
  • Back

Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting Treatments?

CoolSculpting is a versatile treatment that is suitable for a wide range of areas and individuals. It is most effective if you are near your ideal weight but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise. You should be able to identify a specific area of concern, such as your abdomen or upper thighs, where you can pinch at least an inch of soft fat.

As with most aesthetic treatments, candidates should be in good overall health and free from conditions that might complicate the procedure or recovery. It is also important to have realistic expectations about what CoolSculpting can achieve. It is designed to refine and sculpt your physique rather than significantly reduce weight. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment.

If you are seeking substantial weight loss, pursue other avenues first and consider CoolSculpting as a complementary treatment to refine your results.

What Is the CoolSculpting Treatment Process?

You will meet with a CoolSculpting provider during a one-on-one consultation. Together, you will look at your whole body from different angles and discuss the areas where you wish to eliminate fat. Your provider will use this information to determine if CoolSculpting aligns with your goals and craft a holistic treatment plan for reshaping your body.

On the day of your treatment, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and bringing a book, tablet or other form of entertainment. You will be relaxing during the procedure.

Once you are settled in a treatment room, the target area will be cleansed, and a gel pad will be applied to protect your skin. The CoolSculpting applicator is then positioned over the area and the cooling process begins.

What Is the Downtime and Recovery After CoolSculpting?

You may immediately resume your daily activities post-treatment. The noninvasive nature of CoolSculpting ensures minimal disruption to your routine, making it a convenient choice for our clients with active lifestyles. Many seamlessly integrate their treatment into a busy schedule and return to work or social engagements right away.

While CoolSculpting is gentle and does not require downtime, you may experience some temporary side effects in the treated area. These can include:

  • Redness: This is a typical response to the cooling process and usually subsides within a few hours.
  • Numbness: The treated area may feel numb for a few hours to a few days before gradually diminishing.
  • Mild Discomfort: Some clients report feelings of tenderness, tingling or minor cramping in the treated area. These sensations typically resolve within a week.

At Aesthetic Polyclinic, we are committed to ensuring your CoolSculpting experience is as comfortable and satisfying as possible. Our team is always available to address any concerns or questions you might have during your recovery journey should you desire support.

What Results Can Be Achieved With CoolSculpting?

Because CoolSculpting relies on your body’s natural processes to eliminate the treated fat cells, results are not instantaneous. Initial changes can typically be observed within a few weeks post-treatment, and the most dramatic results usually manifest between one to three months after the session.

One of the chief benefits of CoolSculpting is its permanence. Fat cells that are removed through cryolipolysis do not regenerate. This means that the treated areas will always have fewer fat cells than they did pre-treatment. However, the remaining fat cells can still expand with weight gain, potentially altering the area’s contoured appearance. Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle will optimise the longevity of your results.

How Many 
CoolSculpting Sessions 
Are Usually Needed?

CoolSculpting is a tailored treatment, designed to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual. Many clients notice a discernible difference after just one session. For optimal results, a series of treatments is often recommended.

The number of sessions required can vary based on several factors:

  • Treatment Goals: Those seeking more pronounced fat reduction may opt for additional sessions to achieve their desired outcome. Conversely, individuals looking for subtle refinement might find their goals met in fewer sessions.
  • Treatment Area: Larger areas, such as the abdomen or flanks, might require more sessions compared to smaller regions like the chin or upper arms.
  • Amount of Fat: Denser fat deposits could require more sessions to effectively reduce and contour the area.
  • Individual Response: Everyone’s body reacts differently to the treatment. Some individuals might metabolise the frozen fat cells faster and more effectively than others, influencing the number of sessions needed.

During your consultation at Aesthetic Polyclinic, our experts will evaluate these factors and provide a bespoke treatment plan that outlines the recommended number of sessions for you.
