Cooling fat is the basis behind CoolSculpting. Fat cells, known as adipose tissue are more sensitive to cooler temperatures than surrounding muscle and skin. CoolSculpting uses a precise and measured applicator, coupled with a vacuum applicator to draw excess fat into a tailored device.

A computer controls and monitors the cooling system to cool down the fat cells, but protects the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting is non-invasive, non- surgical and does not involve needles.

A clinical examination and discussion with documented photographs are needed prior to treatment. This provides realistic expectations and outcomes.

Your specialist CoolSculptor will position a special applicator with an inbuilt suction device on the treated area. The applicator will gently draw the bulge between two cooling panels. Cooling will then be applied for an hour, and then the procedure is finished.

No needles, no sedation, no incisions, no pain.

All CoolSculpting procedures at Westside Dermatology are conducted in absolute privacy and discretion.

Absolutely. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure invented by Harvard University Scientists. This treatment simply cools the fat away. No incisions or needles are needed for this procedure. CoolSculpting is both FDA and TGA approved by both US and Australian Health standards for the treatment of fat reduction.

CoolSculpting has a safety record spanning nearly 5 years.

Unlike liposuction, the treatment of CoolSculpting is very comfortable for the majority of patients. Most of the discomfort is felt within the first few minutes, much like ice on your skin. Discomfort then settles, and most patients then either listen to their favourite music, cruise the web, read or take a short nap.

The freezing process of CoolSculpting selectively damages fat cells, and kick starts your body’s immune system to digest the treated fat cells after the procedure. This process occurs immediately after treatment however last 2-4 months after the procedure. Lipids from the fat cells are then digested by your lymphatic system.

A single treatment cycle of CoolSculpting takes 60 minutes per site. Your CoolSculptor will plan ahead in regards to treatments and allow necessary time to treat all sites in the single visit. The total CoolSculpting time depends on the number of sites treated. Multiple sites can be treated during one visit which can be discussed during your initial consultation.

COLD! As fat starts to drop in temperature you will feel pressure and cold. This is well tolerated in most patients. In fact many people read a book, cruise the web on an ipad, or even nap during the Coolsculpting treatment. Your one hour treatment will fly by!  Following the removal of the applicator the CoolSculptor will massage the treated area and then it is time to wait for the treatment results to show.

There is no downtime following Coolsculpting. Remember, unlike LIPOSUCTION this procedure is non-surgical, so you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients will have redness, bruising and slight tingling in the treated areas, but this is temporary and resolves within days. Most often patients return to their usual activities the day after the CoolSculpting procedure.

As Coolsculpting does not involve invasive surgery or excisions, side effects are exceeding rare and short lived. Most patients will be slightly red and tingly in the areas treated for a day or two following CooolSculpting. Bruising may occur, especially if you are taking fish oil or anti-inflammatories.

The most common complaint we have following CoolSculpting is that clothes tend to feel looser after a few weeks.

Short answer- it is unknown and still undergoing further studies. The CoolSculpting candidate is a well motivated patient who is within 10% of their recommended body weight with stubborn areas of fat deposits in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, muffin areas, love handles, back areas and inner thighs.

Some patients who exhibit cellulite in these areas may respond to CoolSculpting, however assessment by Westside Dermatology’s specialist CoolSculptor will give you an indication as to the expected results.
