In case you’ve had earmuffs on for the last year or so you will have heard of fat freezing, or cryolipolysis. A method of non-surgical fat reduction, this treatment gets results without having to go under the knife. This treatment is now one of the fastest growing treatments in America and is said to be the third most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedure behind fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, and Australia is following suit. One device in particular is leading the pack when it comes to fat freezing, and it’s Cooltech by Cryomed.
How does Cooltech work?
Cryolipolysis works by applying ultrasound energy to your fatty areas and lowers the temperature of your fat to a point where it freezes it and kills it allowing your body to dispose of the fat through natural metabolising over the following weeks. It’s great for contouring and reducing those curves that are just a little too curvy! One of the main draw cards to this treatment is that it’s a walk in walk out procedure taking around one hour or less, depending on the area being treated.
It works on just about any area where you have enough fat to pinch including:
- Abdomen or belly
- Neck area
The Skin Institute in New Zealand recently had a patient blog on her experience with Cooltech and the before and after photos are definitely worth checking out! The patient describes the experience as a little weird at first but then so relaxing she had to try not to fall asleep!
The recovery is said to involve a little sensitivity in the treated areas but this disappears after a week or so and is not too uncomfortable and definitely not painful at all. Your practitioner should give you a detailed rundown of what to expect after the treatment and Jenny, owner of Southern Cosmetics in Bayside, Melbourne who says Cooltech is one of their most popular treatments says “We also find that once patients have had one area treated and can see improvement, they will often come back to have other areas treated.”
Cooltech is a great option for those patients not wanting or being able to afford liposuction, and who just can’t move the fat through exercise or dieting. It’s suitable for all ages.
So, with celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Molly Sims, Lindsay Lohan and Molly Sims all swearing by the treatment, Cooltech might be something you want to check out today!
