Who is this For?

Ideal for those looking to get rid of stubborn fat bulges and sculpt the body.

It is also good for overcoming the inertia of getting started on exercise for those who are under-motivated.

It complements all forms of exercise programs.

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that delivers controlled cooling to fat cells to freeze and induce natural fat cell death. This process is called Cryolipolysis. The dead fat cells are excreted through normal body metabolism.

    • CoolSculpting® takes care of stubborn fat bulges that diet and exercise cannot get rid of. It is helpful for areas such as:
    • Under the chin (double chin)
    • Abdominal sides (love handles)
    • Upper and lower belly fat
    • Under bra fat
    • Fat underneath buttock (banana roll)
    • Thigh fat

There are different shapes and sizes of applicators to target different areas of fat contours, for example a double chin is shaped and sized differently from fats at the love handle.

Our therapists are CoolSculpt university graduates, extensively trained by Zeltiq. They will first assess your area of treatment and make precise measurements. The CoolSculpting® applicator, together with a gel pad is placed onto the affected area. A mild tugging sensation is felt as heat is removed from the area. This is followed by waves of cold tingles and cramps as the temperature dips. These eventually subside once the treatment area is numbed out by the cold.

The treatment duration can vary from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the application cycles.

Time taken to see results varies depending on the area treated and the body’s metabolism rate to remove the dead fat cells. Visible results can be seen as early as 3 weeks, but most patients see results at 2 months, with some even continuing to lose fat up to 6 months.

With a sensible diet and lifestyle, this treatment can give visible long-lasting results, as this treatment causes apoptosis of the fat cells, i.e. permanent fat cell death.

Some may experience mild redness and numbness immediately after treatment. At times, some may also experience residual tingling or stinging due to stimulated metabolism at the treated areas.

Do note that many do not see immediate results, as the treated fat takes time to be processed by the body. Rest assured that this is an FDA and HSA approved medical procedure and not a superficial cosmetic improvement.

The doctor can prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort, if necessary.

A sensible diet and lifestyle are recommended. We recommend that patients seek consultation with Dr Grace Su, our holistic integrative medicine practitioner to prescribe an integrative program for maintenance. This ensures a lifelong program that is safe, healthy and sustainable, with no side effects.
