While dieting and exercising are effective ways to lose excess weight, there will always be rolls and bulges that simply won’t budge, especially in the hip, thigh and stomach areas.
Until recently, liposuction was really the only way to get rid of stubborn fat, a surgery that required anaesthesia, hospitalisation, and sometimes results in complications.
Several years ago, a new, non-invasive and affordable treatment was approved by the FDA.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ uses an advanced cryolipolysis technology that is applied to fat cells using a device created by Dr. Scott Wolf. This process promotes the cooling of fat tissue, which generates lipolysis without damaging neighbouring tissue.
Lipolysis research found that when fat cells lose their heat energy, apoptosis occurs, which is also known as cell death.
These fat cells lipids are slowly released into the bloodstream and transported to the digestive system where they are eliminated.
Research shows that the controlled cooling of tissue over time will reduce fat cells without harming the epidermis. Selective Cryolipolysis is the technology behind CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™.
What Happens During a CoolSculpting Session?
There are no special pre-treatment steps that need to be followed prior to a CoolSculpting session.
During your session, an applicator will be placed on the area being treated and will gently begin to vacuum the area in order to pull targeted tissue into the cooling panels.
This special applicator is designed to provide intense cooling that causes fat cells to die. After two to three months of destroying fat cells, patients will start to notice a reduction in bulges and rolls.
Results are not immediate because lipids will only be flushed out at the patient’s current metabolic rate, which means that people with higher metabolic rates will see results faster.

How effective is CoolSculpting?
By reviewing a number of academic journals, it was found that there is ultrasound and photographic evidence to support the effectiveness of the CoolSculpting procedure. Stats also show that there is an absence of abnormalities regarding liver function and lipid levels.
Patient testimonials also clearly prove the procedure’s ability to eliminate unwanted fat and bulges, with CoolSculpting providing them with the shape they’ve always wanted.
