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 that 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 skillfully and safely.

How do CoolSculpting or fat-freezing treatments work?

Coolsculpting Treatment Process

The number of fat cells each of us has 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 where 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 recent surgery, pregnancy, 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 in 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?

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.

illumia therapeutics reception

Founded by personality and entrepreneur Kim Lim and a dream team of aesthetic doctors and industry gurus, Illumia Therapeutics is the one-stop medical spa for skin rejuvenation, body sculpting, and feminine health solutions.

Illumia Therapeutics is also the first in Singapore to carry the special-edition Cooltech 360 IceSculpt Fat Freeze technology, a non-invasive full-body contouring treatment that uses cryoadipolysis technology to permanently eliminate stubborn fat in virtually any part of the body.

This latest technology targets multiple areas of the body, including hard-to-reach areas, such as the neck, arms, armpit folds, love handles, abdomen, and inner thighs – all without harming the surrounding skin.

What’s more, it can treat up to four areas simultaneously, whereas other machines can only treat up to two parts, so you don’t have to waste any time by limiting yourself to one area per session. Where other fat-freezing treatments use up to four applicator heads, Illumia’s Cooltech 360 has nine curved applicator heads that can fit perfectly on trickier body parts.

Illumia Therapeutics’ proprietary Hybrid2 Protocol also ensures that their clients achieve visible results with minimal effort. This philosophy involves combining two or more technologies in one session, so that clients can achieve visible and long-lasting results with zero downtime. Check out our writer’s full review of the Cooltech 360 IceSculpt here.
