If you have questions about CoolSculpting®, we're here to help. Below are the answers to some common queries.
The CoolSculpting® fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight-loss solution. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of, despite diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Your first step should be to contact a CoolSculpting® clinic and discuss further with a trained technician or registered medical practitioner to see if it is a suitable procedure for you.
The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer certain conditions including, but not limited to, cryoglobulinaemia (a blood protein disease), cold agglutinin disease (a rare anaemic autoimmune disease) or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria (a rare autoimmune disease). The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity or weight-loss. As with any medical procedure, ask your registered medical practitioner if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.
The CoolSculpting® procedure can treat visible fat bulges including the following areas; submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen and flank (love handle), along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. You can discuss with the clinic about creating a customised treatment plan that's tailored to your body and your individual goals.
Yes, the CoolSculpting® procedure can treat visible fat bulges under the chin. Best results are achieved with two treatments in the same area six weeks apart.
Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Check out the How it Works page to learn more.
As the leading non-invasive fat freezing treatment worldwide,‡ CoolSculpting® has a well-established safety and efficacy profile. CoolSculpting® systems are controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures, designed to automatically stop treatment if it detects the treated area is getting too cold. The Freeze Detect® system is composed of several features, including thermal sensors and proprietary algorithmic software. Freeze Detect® is an integral part of the CoolSculpting® System and is automatically deployed when a treatment is initiated. When the Freeze Detect® system detects a possible freeze condition, it stops the treatment.
