Noninvasive Fat Blasting Is COLD


Statistics consistently show treatments that are minimally invasive and involve less downtime tend to be more popular. The Report of the 2015 Plastic Surgery Statistics, compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, proves this: while 1.7 million cosmetic surgical procedures were performed, the number of minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures was a staggering 14.2 million. Aesthetic medicine is in a persistent quest to modify technologies and treatments to make them less invasive without sacrificing effectiveness, and with many of us battling the bulge, non-invasive fat reduction is in vogue.

Brr…it’s cold in here!

These days, non-invasive fat reduction is getting cold. Very cold. While previous innovations heat or use ultrasound energy to facilitate in the reduction of fat cells, CoolSculpting® is a new technology that takes a unique route by freezing them instead. Exposing unwanted fat cells to extreme cold induces apoptosis, the technical term for programmed cell death, and leads to gradual reduction as the cells are eliminated from the body. The process is natural and controlled to achieve a smooth and uniform result. Absolutely no incisions, needles or lasers are involved. The manufacturer, Zeltiq, states that CoolSculpting® can achieve a 20% reduction in the treated fat layer, with the best result seen within two to four months after just one procedure. The results appear gradually because it takes a while for apoptosis and the physiological process related to the elimination of fat to occur. A reduction of 40% may be seen in a secondary procedure.

CoolSculpting® was approved by the FDA in September 2010. It is the first and only clinically-proven treatment that selectively reduces layers of fat in a target area with patented cooling technology. Developed by scientists and doctors at Harvard, the technology is the result of research discovering that extreme cold is more effective in eliminating fat cells selectively and permanently. The patented cold lipolysis process is known as Cryoplipolysis™.

CoolSculpting® was developed for fat in particular areas prone to accumulation, such as the love handles, lower abdomen and upper outer thighs. Similar to other methods of cosmetic lipolysis, CoolSculpting® only targets fat that lies underneath the skin (subcutaneous). It cannot reduce fat that surrounds the internal organs (visceral) and is not a treatment for obesity or weight loss. The technology doesn’t harm the skin in the target area and is virtually painless, however patients can expect temporary redness, some bruising and numbness as side effects. It is available now in Toronto at Skin Vitality Medical Clinic!
