How does it work?
Cooltech® targeted fat freezing reduces fat tissue by using a controlled cooling system. It is non-invasive safe and effective. The target area is sucked into a hand piece and blood flow to that area is reduced allowing cooling of the tissue to -8°C and causing fat cell death. The dead cells are broken down and gradually eliminated from the body by the normal metabolic process.
Who can have this treatment?
Cooltech® cryolipolysis is a non-surgical procedure is best suited for debulking. It is intended for those that are close to their ideal body weight but just cannot get rid of a few stubborn bulges through exercise or diet. Treated areas include: abdomen, flanks, back fat, bingo wings (arms), knees, lower buttocks as well as inner and outer thighs.
What happens during the treatment?
A cool gel pad is applied to the targeted area to protect your skin. A hand-held cup applicator is then held over the area, creating a vacuum to suck up the unwanted fat. You may feel a tugging and pinching sensation for a few minutes before the area starts to freeze and go numb. Many people read, watch TV or go to sleep during their sessions.
After the suction cup is removed, the clinician will massage the area in order to distribute the fat evenly. You will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment with no downtime. You might experience slight reddening of the skin, bruising and sensitivity of the area for approximately 1-3 weeks thereafter depending on the individual.
