With a lunch time procedure, you can finally get rid of stubborn excess fat that has been eating at your self-image and confidence. Be the envy of others, finally fit into that dress you’ve been dreaming of, strut with confidence in your new body and be showered with praiseworthy comments on your new trimmer look.
In the same time it takes for you to eat a hearty meal, here are a few body parts you transform into a size or two smaller:
The best part about Zeltiq Coolsculpting is that it involves none of the traditional elements of surgical fat loss.
Here’s how it works:
Developed by doctors and scientists at Harvard Medical School (ranked #1 globally), Zeltiq works by freezing fat cells underneath your skin and allowing your body to naturally remove the “frozen” and dead fat cells. Because fat freezes faster than other cells, there’s no damage to surrounding tissues.
What makes this fat freezing treatment even more impressive is the fact that it has been clinically tested to help you reduce fat by up to 22% of your treated area.
Imagine a 10kg blob of fat reduced to 8kgs!
After undergoing this procedure, your body goes to work to remove the dead fat cells. It may take up to 2 to 4 months to notice any difference. The results can be dramatic and is best combined with a sensible diet and exercise programme.
What is Zeltiq?
This is the latest technology to freeze away your fat. It is formulated with a precise cooling protocol so that the fat cells are safely destroyed, without any damage to surrounding tissues and skin. We call it Cryolipolysis.
It is so effective that it received Food and Drug Administration of USA (FDA) approval for fat clearance in 2010. This is unlike other competitors who claim to have the same technology, but without the scientific evidence or FDA endorsement to back it up. After a one-to-three-hour procedure at our clinic, your body goes to work.
Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and they are naturally flushed from your body. This treatment has transformed the way we doctors think about effective slimming.
How does Zeltiq work?
By a unique suction device that brings skin and fatty tissue in contact between two cooling panels, it is able to freeze the fat cells, thereby destroying fat in the process. All this without any risk to the skin or supporting structures. The secret is in the actual cooling protocol, which makes it so effective yet safe.
Which parts of my body can I treat?
Almost any part where stubborn fat is found, but the most popular areas would be the love handles, belly, tummy, arms, saddle back, banana roll, hips and thighs.
How long does each treatment take?
This depends on the number of areas to be treated in each session. Each area will take 1 hour. For example, both love handles, considered 2 treatment areas will take 2 hours (2 cycles) in total. You can split up your treatment cycles or do them all in a day. It is entirely flexible.
How many sessions would I need before I see results?
You will normally see results after one session. The fat cells that are destroyed will be cleared away by natural processes in your body. This can take up to two months for the final results to be appreciated. (individual results may vary)
How many sessions are recommended for each area?
Between one to a maximum of three sessions, depending on your requirements and amount of existing fat.
Would I experience any pain during or after my treatment?
Apart from the sensation of the suction device and brief feeling of cold, you will not feel much pain as the skin is cooled down to the desired temperature. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop or even taking a nap. After the treatment, most patients report that apart from some aching sensation, they were able to return to their work or social activities right away. Most were able to get back to their exercise routine within a couple of days. Very rarely did our patients require any sort of painkiller for the discomfort.
Can I return to normal activities after my procedure?
Yes! the procedure is completely non-invasive, so you can return to normal activities immediately. You might experience mild tenderness, redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness post treatment, but most will find this is hardly noticeable.
Our clients are back at their normal activities the very next day. There is literally no downtime.
What do I need to do after my session?
We will show you how to do daily massage to the treated area for faster healing and results.
How much fat can I expect to lose in one session?
This form of fat freezing has been proven to consistently up to 22% of fatty tissue after a single treatment. Individual results may vary. After the first treatment cycle, you can attain further reduction with repeat procedures. This is by far the most effective non-surgical option to date, backed up by FDA endorsement.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after treatment, and will experience the best results from two months. But your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue to do so for up to six months.
Are the results permanent?
When you have your Coolsculpting procedure, the treated fat cells will be eliminated. This process of flushing out of fat cells have been documented to last up to six months. As long as you maintain your weight with diet and exercise, your long-term result should remain stable.
“I have heard that there are similar sounding treatment options elsewhere.”
How is Coolsculpting different at Freia?
There are many who claim to have the same technology but we have concluded from our own research and trials that Zeltiq is the original, backed up by FDA endorsement and hundreds of thousands of procedures performed worldwide. It remains the effective and safe non-surgical solution for fat reduction using Cryolipolysis. Please beware of imitations. You will find that we assign one Zeltiq-trained staff to tend to your needs during the procedure, ensuring you have a great experience everytime you visit. That is the Freia difference.
In addition, we have the full range of applicators to suit your every need.
The small 6.2 inch applicator is great for those smaller areas such as the upper back and “bra fat” or “fillet”.
The standard 6.3 inch works very well for love handles, tummy, etc.
The large 8.0 inch is equivalent to more than two 6.3 applicators in surface area and is perfect for the upper and lower tummy at the front. You save time and money when choosing the 8.0 for relevant areas.
