How often do you find yourself looking in the mirror and wishing the extra fat on your side arms or tummy would disappear? CoolSculpting will do exactly that in an absolutely noninvasive and non surgical way. It has been gaining mass popularity in Singapore for its proven track record of accomplishing 4,000,000 procedures globally with over 5500 clinical trial patients.
What is CoolSculpting?
Once a scientist discovered that some children who eat popsicles get dimples in their cheeks. The popsicle actually freezes and removes the fat cells giving the children cute dimpled cheeks. CoolSculpting aims to do the same but for your entire body.
When you exercise or diet, the fat cells in your body gets smaller thus making your body look thinner. However, these fat cells do not go away and can easily swell up as your diet intake gets out of control. CoolSculpting is an effective way of fat reduction and can remove up to 25% of these fat layers from your body. It freezes the fat cells without damaging any skin or surrounding tissue.
How does it work?
CoolSculpting uses a procedure named cryolipolysis to freeze the fat. It places rounded paddles in one of four sizes in the targeted areas to cool the fat to a freezing point and causes suction in your skin and fat like a vacuum. These stubborn fat cells are frozen to death and naturally eliminated from your body without the chance of migrating to any other parts of the body.
The most common areas to be treated are thighs, lower backs, belly, arms, under the chin and love handles. The wonderful thing is it works its magic to the focused points without making any changes to the untreated areas.
It takes approximately an hour to treat each body part, the larger the area the longer it takes. However, you can enjoy using your laptop or even take a nap while you are undergoing the process as it does not cause any unbearable pain. You will feel only slight discomfort and numbness due to the suction and cooling sensation. In fact, you can immediately go about doing your regular activities once the procedure is complete with a much fitter and sculpted version of yourself.
Is it for you?
Now, before diving for the treatment you must consult a doctor to ensure whether the treatment is right for you. Take note that CoolSculpting is not for obese people rather it is for those with an extra 20 pounds or so in their body. If you are tired of those ugly bulges of fat and ready for a quick fresh start at a healthier lifestyle then CoolSculpting is the right choice.
The doctor will assess your age, skin quality and whether your tissue is accessible. If you have thick, firm tissue then CoolSculpting is not for you. You must also avoid the procedure if you have any of the following diseases: Cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease and paroxysmal cold hemoglobuinuria (PCH).
However, if you get the green light after your assessment from your doctor then say goodbye to those unwanted fat and get ready to acquire a toned slim figure.
Aftermath of CoolSculpting
A session on CoolSculpting will last a lifetime considering you choose a healthy diet and regular exercise to your lifestyle. The full effect of the procedure can take up to six months to visibly show and for some it may take more than one session to achieve your desired goal.
CoolSculpting in Singapore is best done in Zeltiq which certifies the practioners to perform the procedure on patients. This fat freezing treatment can start as cheap as SGD 600 on an average. However, you may be recommended to multiple sessions ranging from SGD 1500-2400 if you desire to treat your entire body.
