CoolSculpting: The Fat Reducer

The aesthetic market is not too different to the property market in many ways.  While Brexit and London politics delay consumers’ impulses to invest in big changes, a similar trend is becoming noticeable in surgery, where smaller less invasive treatments are increasing in popularity.

With summer around the corner and physical appearances is at the forefront of minds making, we will evaluate a trending treatment on the rise, as advancements in technology allow for maximum results without surgical intervention. Body contouring has evolved from a beauty buzzword to big business with CoolSculpting considered the latest safest FDA approved non-surgical treatment available at medi-spas and clinics worldwide.

Body fat, mummy tummies, muffin tops, love handles, double chins and the likes can be incredibly difficult to shift, despite trying the latest fad diet or exercise. What if we could tell you it’s possible in less than an hour? CoolSculpting is a treatment that is instantly noticeable and long lasting. Spotted in the brochures of leading spas and clinics, glossing the pages of beauty and fashion magazines, but what exactly does it do and how does it help turn back the clock?

Targeting unwanted fat from different areas of the body, from love handles to double chins, the stomach to thigh fat, this procedure cryolipolysis uses the concept of cold temperature freezing and eliminating pockets of fat cells. It safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to fat cells beneath the skin; the targeted cells crystallises then shrivel and die over the coming weeks, your body then metabolises this and disposes of them naturally.

Discovered by two Harvard scientists who made the observation and started looking into the effect cold has on fat when they noticed children getting dimples after eating popsicles. They realized the icy treats were freezing pockets of fat cells. A process that could remove unwanted fat without damaging the skin was born.

CoolSculpting is considered to be a trusted procedure amongst the likes of Dr Edward Fruitman, Founder of Trifecta Med Spa, New York. Acknowledged as “the most successful non-surgical fat removal treatment for many reasons, mainly because it works, on average patients lose 25-30% of fat in the treatment area. Also, it’s quick – it’s only a 35 min lunchtime procedure- painless and has no downtime”.

The appropriate candidate for the procedure, ideally have to be those who eat a healthy diet and exercise; they need to have subcutaneous fat, which is grabbable or pinchable fat to ensure effectiveness and maximum results. It can also be used for curvier patients to reduce the fat throughout a weight-loss lifestyle programme.

Results can show from 3 weeks with optimum results at 12 weeks and a post review is necessary to ensure the procedure reached maximum effectiveness. The process offers long lasting results because the body permanently gets rid the fat cells. And since it is non-surgical, there is no downtime. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment.
