Certain fat are tough to get rid of, even with exercise. If you are struggling with stubborn, unwanted fat, fat freezing is one popular option for fat reduction.

Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze stubborn fats that are resistant to diet and exercise. This fat-freezing method is currently one of the more popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment, with millions of procedures done worldwide.

The first thing to do is to consult with a doctor and check if it is suitable for you. It is essential to understand that it is not particularly for individuals who are obese. Coolsculpting is not a weight-loss treatment, rather it eliminates unwanted fat cells. This process is ideally for those with pinchable fat of at least 1cm at the treatment area and areas that undergo CoolSculpting will have a reduced number of fat cells.

What Is Fat Freezing?

Fat freezing works by cooling the fat layer in a process called Cryolipolysis. Fat cells are sensitive to the cold, therefore the cold temperature destroys and shatter fat cells. It is non-invasive and a great alternative to liposuction. In addition, it does not affect any surrounding tissues other than the targeted cells.

  • Fat freezing is safe.
  • Patients do not need to undergo surgery.
  • Injections are not involved in the fat-freezing procedure.
What is Cryolipolysis? Is Cryolipolysis a weight-loss treatment?

Using cool technology to freeze off fat cells is known as Cryolipolysis. Many people choose Coolsculpting in Singapore over the traditional fat-reduction surgery liposuction. CoolSculpting sessions target fat cells below your skin surface using a scientifically proven fat freezing process called Cryolipolysis. This treatment eliminates fat cells without injuring the skin or surrounding tissues.

Areas that can be treated with CoolSculpting:

CoolSculpting is declared by the FDA to safely and effectively reduce fat. The areas that can be treated with cool sculpting include the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Flank
  • Inner, outer thighs
  • Banana roll
  • Arms
  • Chin
  • Bra fat
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
  • Our doctor first marks the treatment area using a fat-freezing template. This ensure the exact placement of the CoolSculpting applicators.
  • Gel pads are then applied to protect your skin during treatment. Once the treatment cycle is finished, the treated area will be thoroughly massaged to help break down the crystallized dead fat cells, naturally passing out by the body.
  • When these fat cells from your body are exposed to the cold, it triggers cell death. The destroyed fat cells are then eliminated through the body’s system.
What does the treatment feel like?

Some individuals may feel slightly uncomfortable when the fat is sucked into the applicator. However, this subsides as the coldness numbs the treatment area.

Does the fat come back after CoolSculpting?

Most people question if the fat comes back after a CoolSculpting treatment. It is an essential question for those wondering how long does CoolSculpting last. The answer is the destroyed fat will not return and the body will not create fat cells to replace those eliminated fat cells via the fat freezing treatment. However, adequate weight management has to be done in order to prevent the expansion of the remaining fat cells.

Is there any downtime? Does the CoolSculpting in Singapore go wrong anytime?

For the most part, CoolSculpting has a good safety record. There is minimal to no downtime in fat freeze treatments. That is why many people opt for these treatment procedures. Majority of the patients experience mild side effects such as redness and tenderness. Still, these side effects won’t stop you from resuming your daily activities, as it will subside after a couple of days.
