CoolSculpting

What is Coolsculpting? Know more about the new fat freezing technology 

Coolsculpting or Cryoliplosys, which literally translates to cold destruction, is a new scientifically tested body contouring treatment. It relies on a fat freezing method that successfully reduces stubborn fat bulges by targeting and breaking fat cells situated under the skin.

No Surgery, No Needles, and No Downtime! 

This number one non – invasive medical procedure for body sculpting and contouring is FDA – cleared to treat 9 areas in the body: submental (under the chin or double chin), submandibular (under the jawline), thighs (inner and outer), abdomen and flank (love handles or muffin top), upper arms, back fat, bra fat, and underneath the buttocks (banana roll). 

CoolSculpting requires no downtime, you’ll see instant results right after your treatment so you can go on through your day and boost your glowing skin.

20 to 30 percent reduction in fat thickness was observed after a single session! But How does Coolsculpting work? 

 It’s quite simple actually, low to freezing temperatures that range between -5 to +11 °C kill fat cells but leave the skin and surrounding tissue intact. Coolsculpting does just that, it crystallizes (freezes) fat cells by applying controlled cooling to a localized area in the body. 

If we were to get technical; the Coolsculpting procedure targets and cools fat cells, by exposing target areas to degrees of temperature that selectively damages subcutaneous fatty tissues. This triggers fat cell apoptosis or natural cell death causing the fat to die and thus disappear forever. 

Get ready to start seeing results in as little as 3 weeks!  

It takes the body between 3 weeks to 6 months to naturally process and eliminate the dead fat cells for good. Within 6 months, targeted areas will get smaller by 20 to 30%. However, results, as well as the number of sessions required, vary on a case-by-case basis and depend on the area being treated. 

Coolsculpting Vs. Weight Loss

Fat reduction has NOTHING to do with weight loss! Unlike weight-loss surgery and gastric bypass, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution, as it DOESN’T remove large bulks of fat, rather it’s a body contouring technology.

Will it hurt?

During the treatment, you will feel sensations of mild sucking, pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, and stinging. However, the treated area goes numb after about 5 minutes and these sensations subside. You can seriously spend time reading a book or watching a movie while under treatment! 

After that, your Silkor expert will massage the treated areas for two minutes to help break up the fat cells and increase fat reduction.

FDA – Cleared, Safe, and Effective: 

As we mentioned previously, Coolsculpting is a safe, FDA – cleared treatment that not only has a lower risk of complications than other non- invasive and surgical treatments but that also has higher rates of success than other measures like liposuction. 

What happens after the procedure? 

Most probably you will stand up, walk out, and go back to your day to day life. However, you might feel any of these effects; temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, skin sensitivity, or a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after treating the submental area. Generally, these symptoms are mild and subside within days or two weeks. 

But don’t shed a sweat about all of that, you can rely on Silkor’s post-treatment follow up! Our Silkor experts are well trained to aid you during the post-treatment process and guide you to the ways that help handle and reduce side effects. 

Will the fat come back after Coolsculpting? 

Dead fat cells can never come back! But if you gain additional weight, fat can be stored again in other untreated areas around your body. So, make sure to follow a healthy lifestyle and keep those extra kilos off.
