Is fat freezing safe?

The quest for the perfect body can be never-ending, especially as we get older and our metabolisms start to slow down. Let’s face it, the thought of drastic measures like liposuction fills most of us with dread. If only those 3 sessions at the gym and the healthy diet could be enough. Unfortunately for so many of us, it simply isn’t and unsightly pockets of unwanted, pinchable fat can start to appear and stick around in areas like the buttocks, thighs, tummy, flanks and upper arms. Fortunately here at CosmeSurge, we have made it our mission to research and enlist the very best fat freezing technology, so that you can achieve a sculpted and svelte physique without uncomfortable surgery or any downtime. This revolutionary, tried and tested treatment is called CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis. This is the method of cooling fat cells to up to minus 5 degrees until they are destroyed and then eliminated naturally by the body, without harming or damaging the surrounding tissues. Many of our patients here at CosmeSurge are concerned whether the treatment is safe. We always explain fully, the technology behind CoolSculpting® so that their minds can be put at ease and so they can understand why we chose this device over its competitors.

CoolSculpting® is an FDA approved device. This means that it has undergone the strictest safety tests in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration and therefore is deemed safe by their standards. This is the Gold Standard as far as approval is concerned and something we look for when we research new treatment devices here at CosmeSurge. There are several fat freezing devices on the market and like any type of technology, ‘copycat’ machines have been manufactured, to try and replicate the technique of CoolSculpting®. However, many of these devices do not carry the FDA seal of approval and here at CosmeSurge, we aim to bring you proven and tested procedures for your safety and efficacy of treatment.

CoolSculpting® works by placing a fatty area of skin between two ‘paddles’. The cooling technology gets to work and the clever part is, that it only affects the fat cells themselves and not surrounding tissues or harm the skin. Although there are some slight side-effects that could be experienced, such as tingling, stinging or aching at the treatment site afterwards, these symptoms are very temporary and quite normal. As CoolSculpting® does not require any anaesthesia, the risks are dramatically reduced compared to more invasive surgeries. You’re fully awake during the procedure, can chat to your practitioner, read, relax and even check your emails.

Once the CoolSculpting® procedure is complete, you can return to your daily activities immediately with no downtime or need for rest and recuperation. This means that if you have a busy or hectic life, CoolSculpting® isn’t going to get in the way of your work, leisure or social activities and no one will know you have had anything done! No scars, no healing time, no stitches.

CoolSculpting® is effective and sometimes the results can be experienced after one session, though we recommend a course of treatment for optimum results and your treatment plan will be devised before the procedure commences, in a no obligation consultation with one of our specialist practitioners.

For the permanent elimination of stubborn, subcutaneous fat, for a more shapely, sexy body, call us here at CosmeSurge and take that first step to a slimmer, healthier-looking you.
