Non-surgical Fat Removal – No Liposuction

CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq was invented for the very purpose of getting rid of resistant and bothersome fat pockets completely non-surgically.

Certain fat-prone areas of the body are more resistant to diet and exercise – like those muffin tops, the little fat pads around your bra, “love handles” and belly fat. When your best efforts have failed, CoolSculpting offers a uniquely effective fat reduction method that only takes about an hour per area.

Cryolipolysis – Fat’s New Enemy

Fat breaks up when it’s cold enough. Want to get rid of fat without surgery? Then freeze it! Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting is based on cryolipolysis. What’s cryolipolysis? Simply put – Fat Freezing.

How does CoolSculpting’s Fat Freezing Work?

A vacuum assisted handpiece draws in the fat area between two cooling plates. These cooling plates lower the temperature of the fat cells to crystallization levels – the crystallization destroys the fat cells, which are then swept out of the body naturally. Results? Trimmer waist, tummy, back, or other treated area.

Fat “freezes” at a higher temperature than skin tissue, so your skin is never subjected to temperatures that could be harmful. CoolSculpting technology maintains treatment temperature at a level that is effective and safe

Scientific explanation: “The process takes advantage of the fact that adipocytes respond differently to cooling than cells that do not contain significant amounts of fat. The process involves cooling adipocytes to near freezing (~12˚C), which causes crystallization of lipids but has little effect on non-lipid containing cells. Lipid crystallization triggers apoptosis and membrane rupture in adipocytes, releasing the lipids. Lipids are removed gradually through the lymphatic system, reducing tissue volume.”

How Fast Does CoolSculpting Work?

The effects are not instant, but occur over two to three months, much like what you would experience if you were dieting and exercising and getting results precisely where you wanted them. Some patients see improvement within the first month, but you should anticipate several months for the final results. Repeat treatments may be performed for increased fat reduction.

A Typical CoolSculpting Treatment

measure-markThe process is simple and straightforward. You will be weighed, measured and marked, photos will be taken and your skin will be prepped to remove any body oils or lotions. A gel sheet will be placed on the treatment area to further protect the skin, and then the treatment appplicator cup will be placed firmly over the area.

You will feel a strong “pulling” sensation once the system is turned on and the vacuum secures the fat tissue within the cup. As the cold level increases, you may feel some temporary discomfort which subsides in about 5 minutes. Active treatment time per area is 60 minutes.

Once the treatment cup is removed, your skin will be somewhat red, very cold and feel almost like butter. The tissues relax quickly and the redness subsides within an hour or so.

Possible Post-Treatment Sensations / Side Effects

Some patients report some temporary numbness and/or tingling in the treated area. This will subside within a few days to possibly a couple of weeks and is normal. Additionally, you may also see some slight swelling, bruising or redness. Patient FAQs

Good Candidate for CoolSculpting

  • Localized fatty deposits in regions appropriate for body contouring (eg, anterior abdominal region, trunk, arms, legs)
  • Skin with good elasticity and tone
  • Good overall health
  • Realistic expectations

Poor Candidate for CoolSculpting

Not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. CoolSculpting is not liposuction, nor is it a weight reduction or weight management process.

  • Morbidly obese patients
  • Patients without localized fat deposition
  • Patients with poor skin elasticity or tone
  • Patients with excessive scarring or skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis in the area of intended treatment
  • Patients with unrealistic expectations
