Fat Freezing (Coolsculpting)
Fat freezing (with the Coolsculpting technique)
Fat-freezing is an effective and scientifically proven method to permanently remove fat tissue that is difficult to remove with exercise and diet. The method is also called cryolysis and is a good complement / alternative to traditional liposuction. Fat freezing isolates fat deposits and easily removes them without surgery.
At Estetikcentrum, fat freezing with Coolsculpting is only performed by our aesthetic surgeons.
How does fat-freezing work?
When fat-freezing is performed a protective sheet is placed on the skin and we use a piece for sucking in adipose tissue. Using vacuum pump we cool the fat tissues down to minus 10 degrees whereby fat cells are destroyed. The method is feasible thanks to that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the other body tissues. This way you can remove body fat without liposuction or any other surgical procedure. The treatment takes just under an hour and results in the natural cell death of fat cells, also known apoptosis. Other tissues, such as skin, nerve and muscle are not affected at all. The treatment results are permanent and the process of the body’s absorption of the dead fat cells lasts approximately 1-2 months in the body. Approximately 20-25 percent of the fat disappears after only one treatment. Therefore we usually need to repeat the treatment to attain the desired results.
Prior to a fat-freezing treatment
Before a treatment with fat-freezing you will get to meet our specialist within this field for an initial consultation. There we will decide which method of treatment is best for you. It is important to remember that fat-freezing can’t replace liposuction but many patients still find this smart and painless to be useful. We try, as much as possible, to see to your wishes and you’ll also receive information about the expected final results, even if can’t really predict exactly what how it will turn out.
Fat-freezing at our clinic
At Estetikcentrum, we lie at the forefront of fat-freezing and have the most modern equipment. There are several machines on the market which are claimed to carry out the same treatment with the same result. The Estetikcentrum uses a fat-freezing machine from the company Coolsculpting, which is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). To date, over 5 million treatments have been done with Coolsculpting technology and over 1300 Coolsculpting machines are installed worldwide. Studies show that the fatty layer on the treated area decreases by up to 20-25 percent after a single treatment.
Fat-freezing at our clinic cont.
When fat-freezing, the fat is cooled down to -10 degrees to have the best effect. We have hand nozzles in various sizes to be able to offer the perfect fit for all. The hand nozzle’s edges are made of soft medical silicone, which provides a natural boundary and excellent fit. The machine is adjustable so that the hand nozzle gradually attaches, making treatment virtually painless.
Fat-freezing requires no local or general anesthesia and you can be active after a completed treatment. After the treatment, it is common for the fat-frozen area to be red and it may feel slightly numb. However, that quickly disappears.
The body has a very difficult time creating new fat cells again so the result is permanent. It gives you an excellent opportunity to maintain the body shape you want. However, it may happen that other fat cells grow larger at the expense of the fat-frozen ones. The risk is especially noticeable if you have a higher calorie intake than you should. That is why we inform you of what you should consider regarding diet and exercise after our treatment. A healthy lifestyle is of course preferable.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting has been developed by researchers at Harvard University and has been approved by the US FDA and has European CE marking. Patients who do not want to take the risk, cost and convalescence associated with surgery now have, for the first time, the option to use CoolSculpting. Patients can achieve visible results with a tailored treatment plan formulated by certified CoolSculpting personnel.
CoolSculpting is clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment. With the patented safety mechanism, Anti-Freeze Detect System which prevents freezing damage, CoolSculpting is the only leading cold-based, non-surgical treatment to remove fat that has been approved by the US FDA authority. During treatment, patients sit or lie down comfortably and read, work on a laptop, or even take a nap. It requires no needles, no special diets and no convalescence. The treatment is performed in a clinic by qualified personnel.
The science behind CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting was developed by ZELTIQ based on a scientific method called Cryolipolysis (fat-freezing). Cryolipolysis is the result of a revolutionary discovery made by scientists Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson at the Wellman Centre at the Massachusets General Hospital, which is associated with the Harvard Medical School. ZELTIQ is the exclusive licensee of this patented technology and is the only company that offers treatments based on Cryolipolysis.
Their initial research was published in the medical journal Lasers in Surgery and Medicine. It proves that the fat cells under the skin are more sensitive to cold than other surrounding tissues.
Overall, there are about 60 scientific studies and publications, more than for any other comparable product. The studies and publications confirm that fat cells exposed to carefully controlled cooling over a period of time begin to undergo the process in which fat cells gradually decrease and die.
