Not a CoolSculpting® patient
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 for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. 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. 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 in the 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. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as effective as using the CoolSculpting® procedure on other parts of the body (e.g.,abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With CoolSculpting® treatment for a double chin, patients may see results after just 2 visits.
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 a leading non-invasive fat-reduction treatment worldwide,† CoolSculpting® has a well-established safety and efficacy profile. CoolSculpting® systems are controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically.
