Cool Sculpting for Fat Cell Reduction in Melbourne

Cool Sculpting is a branded form of cryolipolysis. This non-invasive cosmetic treatment uses freezing temperatures to break down and kill fat cells while not affecting other cells, such as skin or underlying tissue. CoolSculpting removes excess fat in areas of the body that are more challenging to remove through a regular diet and exercise.

How Does the CoolSculpting Procedure Work?

Cool Sculpting is non-invasive, meaning there will be no cuts, anaesthesia, or medical instruments entering the body. During the procedure, a practitioner will vacuum the skin above the area of fatty tissue that the patient wants to reduce. The skin is sucked into the applicator that cools the fat cells, numbing the site that can be felt by some people.

Most CoolSculpting treatments take around 35–60 minutes and will require one to three sessions, depending on the area targeted. There is no downtime following the procedure because there is no damage to the skin or tissue.
After your treatment, the fat cells can take around 4–6 months to leave the body. In that time, however, the area targeted in your procedure will decrease by an average of 20%.

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting has a high success and satisfaction rate. The procedure delivers lasting results, with the body removing the frozen and broken-down fat cells within a 4-6 month time span. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they won’t return, meaning the effects of CoolSculpting can last for years if paired with a healthy lifestyle.

CoolSculpting is particularly successful at removing excess fat in stubborn areas of the body, like double chin removal, flanks, the belly, the bra area or upper arms.
Due to its non-invasive nature, CoolSculpting will result in no cuts, anaesthesia, or medical instruments entering the body. Cryolipolysis also carries fewer risks than traditional, invasive fat-reduction methods, such as liposuction.


What Does the Research Say about CoolSculpting?

Research generally indicates that CoolSculpting is a safe and effective treatment for removing areas of fat.

A journal article from the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that fewer than 1% of people studied reported complications. There have been no serious complications found, such as bleeding or scarring.
