Fat freezing aims to help remove fat from stubborn areas, the areas that just won't budge, no matter how much you exercise.
Renu Medispa uses CoolSculpting®; a new, non-invasive solution to reduce unwanted fat bulges. Using CoolSculpting®, they target localised fat pockets that have not responded to diet and exercise. Areas commonly treated include the stomach, "love handles", back, and arms.
During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling, to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of your body. The fat affected by the Coolsculpting® is re-absorbed into the body, and eliminated in the same way as dietary fat. Research shows that fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to cold than other surrounding tissues.
I haven't had this procedure done, but research and the information given by Renu indicates that the Dermal Therapist places the CoolSculpting® applicator on the area to be treated; the applicator then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure, just enough to ensure the tissue is cooled efficiently. The treatment takes approximately one hour per site that is treated. The CoolSculpting® procedure is comfortable for most patients and no anesthesia is required. Typically patients are comfortable enough to read, work on laptops, listen to music or just relax during their treatment.
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas that they would like to remove. The treatment is not a weight loss solution and is not a substitute for surgery.
Treat areas such as: Stomach Back
Chest Love handles Side of thigh
Front of thigh
• Back of thigh
• Back of arm
• Inside of arm
CoolSculpting® is a permanent fat-reducing procedure, and generally only one treatment per area is required. On average, approximately 20% of fat cells in the treated area die as a result of the CoolSculpting® procedure. Some patients do have additional treatments to further reduce fat cells.
