What is Cooltech?
Cooltech is a non-invasive fat-freezing treatment that reduces stubborn pockets of fat safely and permanently. Using cryoadipolysis, an advanced controlled cooling technology, cold energy is safely delivered to fat cells to freeze them to death for your body to expel naturally and permanently.
How Does It Work?
Cooltech uses cryoadipolysis technology to initiate a process called apoptosis, where frozen fat cells are broken down and permanently destroyed. Using an adjustable vacuum applicator to selectively target localised stubborn fat pockets, Cooltech freezes fat cells to -8ºC and causes approximately up to 25 per cent of them to die. The fat cells will then be naturally eliminated via your body’s natural metabolic processes over the next 6 to 12 weeks. During this freezing process, only the fat cells are damaged. This is because these cells have a lower freezing point than skin cells, which means the cold energy can reach the fat cells safely without affecting the surrounding tissue. Cooling gel pads are also used during the procedure to further protect and prevent the skin from any ice burns.
What areas can Cooltech target?
Thighs (inner & outer)
How many sessions are required?
The number of treatment sessions required depends on the patient’s goals and the area(s) to treat). With Cooltech, patients can achieve visible results from just one treatment with a reduction of up to 25 per cent of fat in the treatment area. Most patients will start seeing results within 6 weeks, with optimum results at 12 weeks. If repeat sessions are required, there should be at least four weeks of recovery for treatment of the same area.
Are there any side effects or downtime?
There is no downtime and patients can resume daily activities right after treatment. There will, however, be a slight decrease in sensation in the treatment area which usually subsides within a few hours. There may also be some numbness and tenderness which should resolve within a few days. Patients should avoid physical activity or exposure to extreme hot or cold temperatures right after the treatment.
How long do results last?
Cooltech can be a form of permanent fat reduction with proper care, diet and lifestyle after treatment. Poor diet, lack of exercise or hormonal changes may affect long-term results.
