Cryolipolysis, or more popularly known as CoolSculpting, has been steadily gaining traction over the last few years due to its ability to target stubborn fat (read: muffin tops, back bulges, and chunky thighs) safely and effectively without any surgical incision.

Instead, this cutting-edge technology allows individuals to reap body contouring benefits by freezing stubborn fat cells in order to reduce body fat and maintain a more desirable body shape.

What is CoolSculpting or fat-freezing?

The two terms are often used interchangeably, but CoolSculpting is the official name of treatment which uses a machine that’s developed by Zeltiq. The FDA-approved equipment has been proven to consistently deliver 20 to 25% reduction in fat cells of the treated area after a single session.

As a more colloquial or general term, “fat-freezing” is sometimes used to describe the CoolSculpting treatment or other treatments that are designed to deliver a similar result.

When the technology was first made available in Singapore, CoolSculpting or fat-freezing treatments were usually only available at aesthetic clinics.

Later, as the non-invasive treatment gained popularity, it can now be found in most aesthetic clinics and even beauty salons, and can be administered by a non-medical professional who has been trained to use the equipment skilfully and safely.

How do CoolSculpting or fat-freezing treatments work?

Coolsculpting Treatment Process

The number of fat cells each of us have is set in our childhood and teenage years, and don’t differ much as we enter into our adulthood.

As such, it is common for some to find stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to reduce, even with persistent diet and exercise. For some, these stubborn pockets may be on the tummy, others may be on the arms – it varies from person to person because of our genetic makeup.

CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology is able to freeze fat cells, which die at a certain temperature. These dead cells will then be eliminated naturally by the body within one to three months, resulting in a reduction of fat in the treated area.

Who is suitable for CoolSculpting or fat-freezing treatments?

The CoolSculpting treatment is suitable for those who are at or are near their ideal body weight and shouldn’t be seen as a weight loss treatment.

On the other hand, you’ll also need to have more than 2cm of fat skinfold in order to go through the treatment.

This fat-freezing technology is ideal for those who would like to reduce fat in specific areas that they see stubborn fat pockets. Those who have gone through the treatments will find it a permanent fat reduction solution if they keep to healthy eating habits and maintain an active lifestyle.

There are certain conditions that will make you an unsuitable candidate for CoolSculpting, such as a recent surgery, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and hernia. It is best that you check with a doctor to find out if you are suitable for the treatment.

Where can you do fat-freezing on?

Areas you can do the treatment on include under the chin, under the jawline, thigh, abdomen, flank, the “bra fat” area, back fat, underneath the buttocks (commonly known as banana roll), and upper arms.

The clinics and salons you go to may not offer treatments on every area; it depends on how well equipped they are with the different applicators for treatment over different areas. (For example, to treat the double chin, you’ll need to use a much smaller applicator compared to if you’re treating the outer thighs.)

With so many choices out there, which aesthetic clinic or centre should you go to?

How often do you have to do fat-freezing to maintain your results?

Coolsculpting Treatment Results

Results usually begin to set in within one to two weeks after the first treatment, and continue to improve over the next three months. However, if you’d like to repeat the treatment on a similar area, you may typically do so after one month.

Otherwise, studies have shown that results on the abdomen and flank can typically last for many years, as long as you keep to a lifestyle that maintains your weight.
