Cryolipolysis or otherwise known as “fat freezing” is a medical treatment which is used to destroy fat cells. At SBA Clinic, we utilize Cooltech by Cocoon Medical to contour the body by a controlled cooling technology that reduces subcutaneous fat.
This treatment utilizes an adjustable applicator vacuum to cool the fatty tissue down to subzero temperatures, which causes the fat cells to be destroyed. Cooltech, comes with not 1 but 2 powerful applicators, allows time-saving by treating 2 areas at the same time.
It is a comfortable procedure and you could be reading your favorite book or watching Youtube videos while your fat cells are being punished!
Is it painful?
There might be some mild discomfort during the treatment but is well-tolerated. This usually lasts for the first few minutes of the treatment. Some patients have a vague discomfort that lasts for up 2 weeks, and resolves spontaneously.
How long does the treatment last?
It is customized for the individual patient and lasts between 60-70 minutes for each treated area. The preparation time prior to the treatment is about 10-15 minutes.
How many sessions will I need to do?
It will depend on the patient. 1-3 treatments can be done in the same area, with a recommended interval of 6-8 weeks.
Is there a recovery period?
You can go back to your own daily activities immediately after the treatment. This is a non-invasive treatment so there is no need for any recovery time. Just keep your beach holiday a week or two after your Fat Freeze treatment.
