Non-surgical Fat Reduction

Non-surgical fat reduction is a non-invasive procedure to reduce fat in problem areas of the body and neck. This results in noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas of men and women. Most patients will experience an average 20-27% reduction in fat in the area treated. However, visible results can vary based on the patients’ initial fat deposits in the area treated.
The dead fat cells are naturally processed by the liver and in a few months are removed in a similar way to how dietary fat is processed in the body. You will start to see changes as early as 2 weeks after the procedure, and will experience better results after 2-3 months. Results are lasting and cumulative as long as you maintain your weight with diet and exercise. There is no risk of fat from other areas moving over to the treated area to compensate.

Non-surgical fat reduction treatments can reduce fat in the following areas

  • Abdomen and  “”muffin top””
  • Flanks and love handles
  • Back fat
  • Inner and outer thighs, and saddle bags
  • Arms and axillary puffs
  • Submentum (below chin)
  • Male breast

Non-surgical fat reduction can be achieved by the following procedures

  • Fat Freezing( cryolipolysis) : CoolScupting ELITE
  • Radiofrequency lipolysis :TruScupt iD
  • Laser lipolysis
  • Injection lipolysis

A Non-surgical fat reduction by Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting ELITE

Coolsculpting ELTE is a non-invasive procedure that is USA-FDA cleared to effectively reduce fat in problem areas of the body.
  • The CoolSculpting ELITE procedure does not “freeze fat.”
  • The system uses a patented cooling technology that targets, cools and eliminates fat cells without damage to neighbouring tissue.
  • It is based on the principal that fat cells are more vulnerable to cooling than surrounding tissues.
  • A non-invasive applicator is attached to the targeted area to extract energy from the underlying fat tissue, while protecting the skin, nerves, muscles and other tissue.
  • The cooled fat cells undergo apoptosis (controlled cell death) and are gradually eliminated, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.

The Coolsculpting ELITE applicators

There are 7 different applicators – the curve series, the flat series and –. They are made for better suction, better fit and they draw up 15-18% more fat per treatment area compared to the previous generation of applicators. Two areas can be treated at the same time with 2 different applicators, cutting treatment time by half

The coolsculpting ELITE procedure

  • During the procedure, the appropriate applicator is position at the area of the fat bulge
  • The applicator will then gently draw the fat into the cup or within the flat applicator (for outer thigh)
  • The fat is cooled at a controlled temperature of minus 11 degrees centigrade. When fat cells are exposed to cooling, the fat cells undergo cell death (apoptosis) and gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients as early as 2 weeks
  • As the cooling panels go to work in the first few minutes, you will feel a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates.
  • During the 35-45 minutes procedure, you will not feel any pain or discomfort. Most people spend this time reading, working on their lap top, watching movies, listen to music or even taking a nap. No pain medication is needed

Advantages of the CoolSculpting ELITE for non-invasive fat reduction

  • Short treatment time of 35 minutes per area..
  • Comfortable and convenient:  you can have the treatment during lunch time
  • No downtime:  you can resume normal activities including exercises immediately
  • Minimal and temporary side-effects:  Some patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness in the treated area
  • 2 areas can be treated simultaneously reducing treatment time to half
  • New applicators have better suction, better fit, better tissue contact and better cooling distribution.
