CoolMini, Zeltiq’s new CoolSculpting applicator, is finally in town to help you say goodbye to double chin, armpit fat, and sagging knees. CoolSculpting or cryolipolysis are words that anyone and everyone who seeks body contouring treatments would know and speak fondly of. But how much do you know about them?
CoolSculpting is perhaps one of the most popular and well-known non-invasive body contouring treatments due to its efficacy and interesting cryolipolysis technology. The treatment freezes your subcutaneous fat into crystals and disposes them naturally from your body.
How did the fat freezing idea come about?
Who would’ve thought that popsicles could pave the way to a new fat-elimination technology? But apparently that’s what happened. A study in 1970 showed that children who consumed a lot of popsicles ended up with cheek dimples and the condition was called “Popsicle Panniculitis”. A decade later, a study on the effects of cold during the winter months that led to thigh fat reduction for horse riders was published. It was called the “Equestrian Cold Panniculitis”.
Dr. Manstein and Dr. R Rox Anderson, both Harvard Medical School doctors, began investigating the effects of cold temperature in the elimination of fat cells. They discovered that fat cells were more sensitive to cold and from that discovery and many tests later, they were able to define the exact temperature at which it is most effective.
Suffice to say, the rest was history and cryolipolysis was born.
What is cryolipolysis actually?
Cryolipolysis is a combination of two words—cryogenic, meaning “frost” and lipolysis which means “to dissolving fat cells by non-surgical means”. Cryolipolysis is used to remove certain areas of body fat that are just under the skin to contour a person.
Freezing your fat at any inch of the body
Ever since the company, Zeltiq, had its CoolSculpting system approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010, the procedure became so hot that they expanded the areas of coverage by creating suitable applicators—from small and large applicator to surface applicator—to suit each part of your body. This ranges from love handles, back or bra fat, abdomen, to inner and outer thighs.
All you have to do during the fat freezing session or cryolipolysis treatment is to sit or lie down (based on the area that you want to freeze) for about an hour for each area, wait two to three months to see full results and you are ready to flaunt!
At Halley Medical Aesthetics, you can target two or more areas at half the usual treatment time with a combination of our CoolSculpting and cryolipolysis machines.
From double chin to armpit fat and knee fat with CoolMini!
The CoolMini applicator was created to treat stubborn fat in the double chin, knee fat, and bra fat at the arm pit areas. It may be the smallest applicator thus far by Zeltiq but it reaches the nooks and crooks successfully.
Designed to treat smaller fat pockets and the submental or chin fat area, you can now stop seeing double and say hello to your single chin! If you want to say goodbye to stubborn body fat and double chin this new year, call us at 6737 8233 to book your appointment now.
