Say Goodbye To Stubborn Fat.
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, saddle bags and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think liposuction surgery. Neither is cool by us. That’s exactly why the Dermatology Institute of Victoria invested in the CoolSculpting system. Only CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.
What CoolSculpting treats.
- Hips / Love handles
How does the procedure work?
CoolSculpting® uses a targeted cooling process to eliminate fat cells in an easy, non-intrusive fashion. Fat cells have a low freezing temperature that allows them to be targeted, leaving surrounding structures unaffected. Once crystallized, the fat cells, over time, die and are naturally eliminated from the body. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of such as the lower abdomen, love handles, thighs, sides or back.
What will the patient experience during the procedure?
Photos and measurements will be taken prior to the procedure during an in-depth consultation. No anaesthesia or pain medication is required. At the beginning of the procedure, the patient is placed in a comfortable position that allows access to the treatment area. In most cases, as the procedure is started, vacuum pressure draws tissue into an applicator cup between cooling panels. Sensations initially elicited by the vacuum and the cold generally subside as the area becomes numb. This can be quite a lengthy procedure depending on the area being treated.
What can the patient expect after the procedure
Generally, there is minimal recovery time after CoolSculpting®. Most patients are able to return to their daily routine immediately after the procedure. Although for some people, the treated area may look or feel stiff with transient blanching (temporary whitening of the skin). They may also feel nausea or dizziness as the body naturally warms and sensation returns to the treatment area. Bruising, swelling and tenderness can occur in the treated area, which typically resolves within a week or two.
