Coolsculpting Treatment

Coolsculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat deposits that seem resistant to diet and exercise.

(Please note that this treatment should be performed by an accredited medical professional.)

How does it work?

Coolsculpting employs a process called cryolipolysis in which fat cells are frozen using sub-zero temperatures. The fat cells crystallise as they are frozen and gradually die off before being naturally eliminated by the body. As the body eliminates the fat, you’ll see a gradual fat reduction over several weeks.

Is the fat truly gone? Do I need to follow a strict diet?

Once the crystallised (frozen) fat cells are eliminated by the body, they are gone for good. There is no need for a special diet. In order to experience the full benefits of Coolsculpting, patients need to maintain their weight and should adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise.

Which areas can be treated?

Commonly treated areas include the tummy, flanks (muffin tops/love handles), thighs, bra rolls, back fat and upper arms. Coolsculpting is also effective for reducing the double chin effect.

What is the treatment like?

The treatment typically takes around 35-60 minutes. Dr Sng will do an initial assessment of the area to be treated and identify the optimal applicator position for the procedure. In the first few minutes of the treatment, you may feel a pulling or tugging sensation before the area starts to feel cold. As the cooling effect occurs, the treated area becomes numb. Massage is then performed at the end of treatment in order to break down the crystallized fat.

What will I feel after treatment and when will I see results?

After treatment, it is normal to have temporary redness and there may be bruising at times. These effects are temporary and normally resolve themselves over a few days. The treated area may feel firm and slightly numb or tingly for a period of a few days or up to a few weeks. Most patients notice improvements as early as a month after, with more visible results 2 months after treatment.

How many treatments do I need?

Typically, 2 treatments for each area will give more significant fat reduction. However, most patients experience fat reduction even after a single treatment, and these slimming effects can last for months in many cases.
