CoolTech is the latest and most effective non-surgical treatment to remove stubborn pockets of fat. CoolTech is often known as fat freezing and is an advanced cooling technology that targets and eliminates fat cells. We’re featuring CoolTech over the coming months as it’s a minimal contact procedure that’s timed well coming into the cooler months and results starting to show at 3 – 4 weeks and full effects are usually seen at the 14 week mark.
You can book in for a free consultation with our highly trained nurses to discuss the options available to you and how to achieve your desired results. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions about CoolTech.
How does it work?
The technical term for the technology is ‘cryolipolysis’ and involves the use of freezing temperatures to break down unwanted fat cells. Controlled, computer generated software freezes fat cells to temperatures below -11 degrees for up to 50 minutes. Unlike other non-surgical treatments, CoolTech actually removes the fat cells. In weeks after the procedure, the body’s immune response sends out ‘scavenger cells’ to consume the broken down fat cells so they can’t grow back.
What areas can you treat?
There are several areas that can benefit from CoolTech:
- Abdomen and stomach
- Inner and outer thighs
- Lower and upper back
- Under the chin
- Pectoral area (pecs)
Does it hurt?
There can be a level of discomfort for the first few minutes from the numbness as the freezing applicator creates strong cooling sensations. Some patients report a pinching or tingling sensation, however overall it is not a painful procedure.
Is there any downtime?
You’ll be able to return to normal activity as soon as you leave the clinic, however we do advise that you avoid any exercise for the first 24 hours after the procedure.
When will I see results?
You should start to see the early results around the four week mark, but long term results will be seen by roughly 14 weeks post-treatment.
Is it permanent?
The fat cells do not usually regrow so results are very long term, however you can still put on weight and lose the sculpting effect if you don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What’s the difference between Cooltech & Liposuction?
The effects from CoolTech are not as fast or dramatic as liposuction or other invasive procedures. However, it’s a suitable option for those who want to see results without surgery and downtime.
While not a replacement for a balanced diet and regular exercise, CoolTech can hit those stubborn areas that just won’t budge no matter how hard you try.
