Numerous people struggle with stubborn fat that refuses to budge despite regular exercise and a good diet. CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQTM is a cutting-edge technique that can remove stubborn fat in isolated areas without surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting® uses innovative controlled-cooling technology to target regions of excess fat all over the body and gently freeze away unwanted fat cells for a noticeable and natural-looking result. Each CoolSculpting® treatment session typically results in a 20-30% reduction in fat bulges in the treated area, with some patients able to see even more improvement with multiple treatment sessions.
What is CoolSculpting® and how does it work?
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary fat-reduction therapy because it eliminates the need for incisions, needles, anaesthesia, surgery, or recovery time. Patients frequently spend their procedure time on their phones, working on a laptop or tablet, reading, or watching movies, and there is usually very little discomfort. Depending on the number and size of desired treatment regions, each CoolSculpting® session typically lasts one to two hours. Fat loss is slow after the treatment, and results can be observed in as little as three weeks. The most significant changes usually occur within the next three to four months.

What Is CoolSculpting® and How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® is based on the same scientific study that led to the success of cryotherapy, which has been used to treat a range of medical conditions for years. CoolSculpting®, unlike cryotherapy, is done for cosmetic reasons rather than medicinal reasons. CoolSculpting® uses a technology called CryolipolysisTM to deliver extremely cold temperatures to fat cells in the face and/or body. These fat cells are particularly sensitive to cold, allowing them to “freeze” while the surrounding skin and tissue remain unaffected. The targeted fat cells are subsequently broken down by CoolSculpting® and naturally absorbed by the body, resulting in a progressive slimming effect over time. CoolSculpting® can smooth out bulges of extra fat in this way, without the need of needles, surgery, or significant downtime.
What Aspects of the Body Can CoolSculpting® Treat?
CoolSculpting® can effectively reduce unwanted fat pockets in a variety of locations on the body. CoolSculpting® is most effective in areas with significant fat accumulation that are unaffected by exercise or “working out” the targeted area. CoolSculpting® is commonly used in the following areas:
- Flanks, often known as “love handles,” are the edges of a garment.
- Gynecomastia is a condition that affects men (male breast development)
- wrinkle in the buttocks
- Thighs, both inner and exterior
- Back-to-back (bra area)
- Knees on the inside
- chin with two chins
One of the most prevalent CoolSculpting® treatment sites is the belly. While CoolSculpting® can shrink the layer of fat beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat), it cannot address visceral fat that is stored inside the abdominal cavity around the intestines. Visceral fat can generate a bulging appearance in the belly, thus patients who want to minimise these internal fat accumulation should lose weight before undergoing CoolSculpting®.
Similarly, CoolSculpting® may be able to relieve gynecomastia caused by glandular breast tissue, but it will not help with male breast development caused by excess fat. A surgical male breast reduction surgery may be required for these patients to get the desired result. Our knowledgeable staff can assist you in determining whether CoolSculpting® for a certain location would be beneficial to you.
Visceral Fat vs. Subcutaneous Fat
CoolSculpting in Dubai is a potent non-surgical approach to reduce excess fat; however, it is only designed to treat one type of body fat: subcutaneous fat. The fat layer right on top of the muscle, just beneath the skin, is referred to as this. Subcutaneous fat, unlike visceral fat, is visible and pinchable. It’s amenable to dieting and exercise, which implies that regular exercise and a well-balanced diet could help you lose excess subcutaneous fat. However, even leading a healthy lifestyle, subcutaneous fat can be resistant and remain in place. As a result, many people choose to supplement their weight-loss efforts with clinically proven fat-reduction treatments like CoolSculpting®. This sort of fat, on the other hand, is not the same as visceral fat, which is found between our internal organs and in the abdominal cavity.
When opposed to subcutaneous fat, visceral fat offers a bigger risk to your health since it can build in the arteries and quickly raise your blood pressure. While CoolSculpting® can effectively reduce subcutaneous fat, these fat-reduction techniques often do not affect visceral fat. This is why some individuals who have had fat removal treatments in the past may still have the appearance of abdominal fat. To lose visceral fat in the abdomen, dieting — particularly intermittent fasting — exercise, and lifestyle modifications are usually required, while CoolSculpting® can be used to shape the overlying subcutaneous fat if necessary.
Who is a CoolSculpting® Candidate?
Because CoolSculpting® is not intended to be a weight-loss surgery, optimal patients will have prominent fat deposits but be at or near a healthy weight for their body stature. Furthermore, CoolSculpting® treatment is most effective in people who have a good level of skin elasticity.
One of the numerous advantages of CoolSculpting® is that it may be appropriate for patients with medical issues that prevent them from undertaking surgical procedures such as liposuction. CoolSculpting® is not recommended for people who have a history of disorders or conditions associated to cold exposure. Our trained staff can assess your specific anatomy and medical history during a consultation to see if CoolSculpting® is a good fit for you.
Liposuction vs. CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® and liposuction are two of the most commonly used fat-reduction procedures. Both procedures can be quite effective at smoothing fat bulges, but there are a few key differences between them that may help you decide which is the best treatment option for you.
CoolSculpting® is best for those who want to avoid surgery and don’t mind their results taking time to appear. This med spa therapy can produce stunning effects, but it’s intended to shed excess fat over the course of several weeks rather than offering an immediate benefit. Individuals seeking a faster turnaround may be better suited by a suction-based fat removal procedure such as liposuction. Liposuction can not only generate almost instantaneous benefits, but it can also address larger amounts of fat at once than non-surgical options. As a result, patients who are looking for a more significant fat reduction usually find liposuction to be more satisfying. A customised consultation is frequently required to determine which body shaping solution is best for each patient’s aesthetic goals.
What Is CoolSculpting® and How Does It Work?
A single CoolSculpting® cycle lasts between 35 and 45 minutes. The number of cycles required for a session is governed by the size of the targeted region and the number of treatment areas scheduled. Depending on the treatment region, multiple sessions may be required to attain the desired result.
A consultation between you and our courteous staff—all of whom have graduated from CoolSculpting® University—can identify which area(s) will be treated to start the process. The applicators are applied on the targeted areas during the CoolSculpting® procedure. The cooling effect is then delivered via two panels that are placed on opposite side of the fat bulges in the targeted location. Patients will feel a tugging and pulling feeling that is strong enough to ensure that the chosen tissue cools effectively.
Patients usually suffer numbness for the duration of treatment after an initial freezing sensation in the targeted area. While waiting for their session to end, people frequently rest or engage in stationary leisure activities such as reading or watching movies. Patients can return home or to work once all of the areas planned for the session have been treated. There is no such thing as downtime.
