Alternative for Liposuction

Many people probably recognize it, fat that can’t be gotten rid of with exercise or diet. There is now a solution for this, namely CoolSculpting. The CoolSculpting technique uses controlled cooling, also called Cryolipolysis. With this technique fat cells are destroyed. Then the fat cells are disposed naturally by the body. This procedure is suitable for both men and women. Just like with liposuction the fat cells are permanently removed.

Liposuction without surgery

Liposuction (also called liposculpture) is a surgical technique in which subcutaneous fat tissue is removed using a suction cannula. A small incision is made for this purpose. The subcutaneous fat layer is then filled with a liquid. This is a mixture of physiological salt and local anesthetic. Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia in the majority of procedures. When you have undergone a Liposuction procedure there is an average recovery time of at least 4 weeks. Also you will not be able to resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. You will definitely need a few days to recover from this.

The CoolSculpting technique does not require a surgical procedure and does not require anesthetic or anesthesia. The procedure is nearly painless and you don’t need a recovery period.

What is CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting procedure was developed by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. They discovered that fat cells can be selectively affected by cold. This led to the innovative cooling process.

What exactly does a CoolSculpting treatment entails?

The fat cells under the skin are cooled with our special applicator. This is done for one hour at -10 degrees. The procedure is very precise to apply and also very safe. The treated fat cells crystallize and then die off. In the period after the treatment the fat cells are disposed by the body in a natural way, so that the fat you always wanted to get rid of is gone. This process takes several weeks.
