CoolSculpting works by cooling down fat cells to the point that these cells crystallised. By crystallising fat cells, they will start to break down and are subsequently flushed from the body over the course of the following weeks and months as the body works to eliminate the now-dead fat cells. This leads to long-lasting and noticeable results.
Most areas including the abdomen, love handles, upper arms, double chin and inner thighs require a vacuum applicator cup that draws up fatty tissue and is cooled by dual cool-panels within the device. The CoolAdvantage, CoolAdvantage Plus, CoolSmooth & CoolMini suit all these areas and more.
The procedure known as ‘cryolipolysis’ targets, cools and eliminates fat cells without causing damage to surrounding tissue. A non-invasive applicator is placed onto the targeted area and the fat is drawn up into the applicator between two cooling cool-panels by suction.
As the cooling starts, a feeling of pressure and cold follows. Each treatment usually takes between 35 – 45 minutes depending on the area being treated. During this process the fat cells crystallise, break down and are then naturally flushed from the body over the next few months.
CoolSculpting continues to be an excellent way to redefine your silhouette and one of our most popular treatments. The Cranley Clinic has two machines and we are delighted to say that we are one of only a small number of clinics with the ability to offer dual sculpting (treating two areas simultaneously). As a result, the majority of treatment times have been cut in half.
