FAT FREEZING: A PERMANENT FIX
PRETTY COOL TECH, THIS
THE COOLTECH BY COCOON MEDICAL, SPAIN IS ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR TREATMENTS AT JUVERNE.
This novel method of permanent and painless non-surgical fat reduction is based on the mechanism of cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis means breaking down the walls of fat cells by freezing them, releasing the fat to the lymphatics for excretion from the body via the liver – over the next 8 to 12 weeks. The number of fat cells in the body is definite, only their size changes as a person gains or loses weight. Thus by destroying the cells, cryolipolysis is able to give a permanent fat reduction in the targeted area. The latest upgrade to the CE approved CoolTech device uses a special thick gel that protects skin even better during treatment and helps targeting of the deeper fat cells. The device also has a variety of hand pieces to target different shapes and sizes of fat bulges on the body and the face in men and women – including the very popular Tiny applicator for the double chin, under arms and similar bulges.
WHO AND WHEN
The treatment is best suited for individuals who have a stubborn area of fat that does not respond to diet or exercise and who do not wish to have a surgical intervention. Most patients do not want a sudden change and like that the change with CoolTech treatments is slow and steady allowing skin to snap well in place, with no downtime and gives them lasting improvement. Depending on the size of the bulges, a person may need 1 to 3 treatments at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks, though results from a single treatment continue to appear 3 months after the session.
Fat freezing is a boon for patients who struggle to treat specific areas – especially abdominal fat – which is a common concern in men. Women also notice increase in abdominal fat deposition with age, especially on the ‘love handles’ if they are insulin resistant, have hormonal imbalance or are experiencing peri-menopause.
WHAT TO DO / NOT DO
The treatment does not restrict your daily activities and it is recommended to continue an active lifestyle and consume a balanced diet with plenty of fluids to help the body flush out fat faster. Massages, steam/sauna, exercise are beneficial but not mandatory.
The CoolTech is a world class device with proven efficacy and safety for spot fat reduction. The treatments are affordable and offer excellent value, with the advantage of being a non-surgical intervention. At Juverne, we like to treat our patients to complimentary skin tightening with a US FDA approved device one week after fat freezing sessions to give synergistic improvement.
