Sometimes, no matter how well you eat or how much you exercise, certain stubborn pockets of fat will not budge.
CoolTech can be a very effective way to treat these hard-to-move areas and sculpt parts of the body to accentuate the results you have achieved naturally. With winter in full swing, now is the best time to consider perfecting those curves using CoolTech treatment. Dr John Flynn and the team at Cosmedic & Skin Clinic are the first to introduce to the Gold Coast the revolutionary counterpart ZELTIQ Coolsculpting Technology – the latest and most effective non-surgical treatment that removes stubborn pockets of fat.
What is CoolTech and its predecessor?
It is a walk-in walk-out, non-invasive way of reducing the more resistant fat bulges including back fat, love handles, male breast reduction, muffin-tops and isolated belly fat.ZELTIQ Coolsculpting is a non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue (fat cells) without damage to the other tissues. During the procedure, an applicator is placed on the targeted areas and used controlled cooling to safely eliminate fat cells. CoolTech works similarly by using advanced cooling technology to target and eliminate fat cells, resulting in a noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas.
How does CoolTech work?
Similar toCoolTech, CoolSculpting works on the basis of cryolipolysis. In order to help you achieve the results you are looking for, at Cosmedic Skin & Clinic, we use a controlled, computer-generated software to freeze your fat to temperatures below -11 degrees for up to 50 minutes. From there, your body’s immune system will take care of the rest! During the weeks after your procedure, scavenger cells with come and removed the broken-down fat cells, allowing them to return to their original size. The difference with CoolTech is that once these cells are removed, they will not return.
Which areas can be treated by CoolTech?
CoolTech can be used to treat a number of areas including:
- Abdomen and stomach
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper and lower back
- Under the chin
- Pectoral area
If you need CoolTech in another area, we suggest that you book a consultation so that one of our experienced staff members can help you find the best solution to achieve your goals.
What are the results of CoolTech?
Once we’ve targeted your body’s fat cells with the device, they will be destroyed. You will gradually begin to see the results as your body’s immune system gradually removes the fat.
The results can be seen as early as four weeks post-treatment, but they will peak around the 14-week mark.
What is the downtime after CoolTech?
This will depend on the individual. For new patients, we advise that you do not exercise for 24 hours following the treatment. However, you will be fine to return to work or to your other day-to-day activities as soon as you walk out of our practice.
Does CoolTech leave a scar?
CoolTech is a non-invasive treatment that does not leave a scar. Some patients do experience a little redness and swelling, but this is not a common occurrence. During the procedure, you may experience a little discomfort for the first five minutes. Previous patients have recalled that they felt a tingling sensation in the treated area during and for a few hours after their procedure.
CoolTech or Liposuction?
The results of CoolTech are not as rapid or dramatic as invasive procedures such as liposuction. However, for patients who wish to avoid the pain, risk and recovery time associated with surgical procedures, CoolTech may be the preferred option.
Is CoolTech safe?
The procedure is considered to be very safe and effective. Over three million procedures have been performed worldwide and any unwanted side effects are extremely rare. The most reported side effects include tingling and some numbness, but this occurs in less than 1% of the case
Because you will experience the most noticeable results two months post-procedure, winter is the ideal time to book an appointment so that when spring comes around, you will be able to show off your new body. Call Cosmedic and Skin Clinic to book your appointment today (07) 5588 4777
