So I’m sitting here at Laserclear cosmetic clinic with the beautiful Elle McLaughlin registered nurse and cool tech clinician, and am asking her the “cooling questions” about Cooltech aka CoolSculpting aka fat freezing.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The contouring applicators have one of four sizes to suction your skin and fat “like a vacuum,” crystallizing your fat cells. “It goes through the fat cell death process without affecting your skin.”
The cooling sensations last a few minutes until you eventually go numb.”
So you relax and rest for an hour or catch up on returning emails, calls or social media.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Anyone looking for a moderate improvement in their body shape,” this is not designed for a quick fix, major fat removal like liposuction. We consider “your age, skin quality and whether you able to maintain it”
Will it look good after fat is removed?
“Yes, but your full outcome depends on how thick or pinchable the tissue is,” because the suction applicators can only treat the fat cells it can access. Giving our clients their desired result.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?
What you can expect, is a 25 percent fat reduction in a treatment area with mild to moderate fat reduction, improved waistline, less bulging of the area that’s of concern. “It may take more than one treatment to get to your optimum result”
WILL IT MAKE YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
This is not a weight loss treatment. Remember, muscle weighs more than fat. Body contouring works for better proportions targeting concern areas like, the bulges over the top of your pants or your bra. However, your current weight, may drop “one or two sizes.”
IS IT PERMANENT?
Yes, it’s a permanent fat reduction technology, but your results will
only last if you continue control your weight and ensure good nutrition and exercise part of your day.
WHEN SHOULD YOU START?
Before the summer holidays, weddings or just the start of the you that you want to be. So, schedule your session three months in advance, six at the most. Results are not visible for at least four weeks, with the fat loss reaching its peak at around eight. “By twelve weeks your skin smooths out and looks prettier. You will need six to eight weeks in-between treatments to ensure that your first treatment has worked to its full potential
IS IT SAFE?
Cool sculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010,
injury will not occur, and swelling is minimal. If you have any health concerns, risks should be discussed with your doctor.
So Is cool tech just too good to be true?
“It sounds like it is, but I can assure you it lives up to its promises. This is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, promising to eviscerate love handles and bra bulge with the wave of a cooling wand.
Although, some of this is up to you too! By changing some diet and exercise behaviours cooltech will help you transform into the you, you want to be.
