Coolsculpting by ZELTIQ is a revolutionary fat loss treatment that uses extreme cold to freeze off fat cells in specific parts of the body. These fat cells are killed without affecting the rest of the cells in the region. The frozen fat cells are then reabsorbed into the body, leaving the region with less fat cells than before. Coolsculpting is therefore a great way to get rid of the stubborn fat deposits that occur naturally on your body.
The Coolsculpting process is unlike that of any other weight loss procedure, as fat cells are killed instead of shrunk. However, patients are advised to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle after the procedure, as fat cells in the surrounding regions can still grow. Coolsculpting is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise routine.
This treatment destroys up to 25% of fat cells in the treated area.
Here are three reasons why Coolsculpting is the fat-loss treatment that you have always been looking for.
Coolsculpting is non-invasive
Unlike surgical procedures, Coolsculpting is non-invasive, meaning that the skin is not punctured, and foreign objects or materials are not introduced into the body. A typical Coolsculpting treatment can be completed within an hour, and patients can return immediately to their daily routine after the treatment; there is no downtime. Because the treatment is so short, you can even perform it during your lunch break.
However, patients will have to spend time attending a one-on-one consultation with Dr Elias Tam, who will discuss with them the best approach to achieve their ideal fat-loss results.
As the Coolsculpting treatment is non-surgical, it also does not carry with it the risks that are associated with surgery.
Patients may feel discomfort after the procedure is completed. If you are concerned about experiencing pain, do consult with Dr Tam, who can address your concerns.
Coolsculpting delivers results
As the Coolsculpting procedure uses extreme cold to kill off fat cells, you can be certain that the treatment will remove unwanted fat cells in specified regions. The number of fat cells in the area is therefore reduced. However, do note that the residual fat cells may multiply if the patient later puts on weight.
Coolsculpting makes use of the body’s natural healing processes to remove fat cells. Because of this, the results of the procedure are gradual, and natural-looking.
Coolsculpting is completely safe
Coolsculpting is the only fat-freezing technology that is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means it is absolutely safe: it is controlled cooling that targets only your fat cells. The treatment can be performed safely even on patients with controlled chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
If you have a medical history, please do inform Dr Tam during the pre-procedure consultation. He would best be able to ascertain your suitability for the procedure.
