Melbourne Coolsculpting Specialists

CoolSculpting, which is also referred to as fat freezing or cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive, fat-reduction treatment that reduces the number of fat cells in a specific area. The technicians at Chelsea Cosmetics in Melbourne, Australia, use Zeltiq CoolSculpt technology to contour the body. With no downtime or incisions, many people are choosing CoolSculpting over liposuction, which is the traditional surgical procedure for fat reduction.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The technicians at Chelsea Cosmetics in Melbourne, Australia, can use cryolipolysis to contour a client’s body. During this procedure, the Zeltiq machine freezes fat cells, which ultimately leads to their death. Nonetheless, the client’s neighbouring nerves, blood vessels, skin and muscles remain unharmed. The length of a client’s treatment depends on the number of areas he or she would like the Zeltiq technician to address. The total treatment time ranges from a half an hour to an hour.

What Happens to the Dead Fat Cells?

A few weeks after a cryolipolysis treatment, the dead fat cells pass through the liver and are expelled from the body. The client sees his or her preliminary CoolSculpting results at the 3-month mark, with improvements continuing for another 3 months. Once the client reaches the 6-month mark, final results are evident.

How Effective is CoolSculpting?

At Chelsea Cosmetics, cryolipolysis for the reduction of fat is very effective. During a fat-freezing treatment, the Zeltiq machine uses controlled cooling to reduce the amount of fat in the treatment area by as much as 25%.

Which Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting?

This fat-freezing treatment allows the technician to target fat cells in areas all over the body. Many clients want to have fat-freezing treatment on their abdomen and hips. Using the large Zeltiq applicator, the experienced technicians at Chelsea Cosmetics can address two areas at the same time, thus, reducing the client’s treatment time by about 50%.

CoolSculpting is also used to address visible bulges of fat that are located:

  • Underneath the buttocks.
  • In the upper arm.
  • Beneath the jawline.
  • In the flanks.
  • Along the bra-line.
  • In the back.
  • Underneath the chin.
  • In the inner and outer sections of the thigh.

Cryolipolysis can also be used to tone the:

  • Knees.
  • Fat bulges in other areas of the body (e.g., mons pubis).
  • If contouring irregularities are present following a liposuction procedure, technicians can use fat-freezing treatments to create symmetry.

Can CoolSculpting Eliminate Cellulite?

Although cryolipolysis is not a treatment for cellulite, it can reduce the fat that bulges out, creating some of the dimples. Therefore, fat-freezing treatments can, indirectly, reduce the visibility of cellulite.

Are There Any Other Ways to Reduce the Visibility of Cellulite?

Yes, there are other nonsurgical treatments available (e.g., dermal fillers) that clients can use to decrease the visibility of their cellulite even more.

Benefits CoolSculpting treatments can provide clients include that cryolipolysis:

  • Is a safe and effective fat reduction option.
  • Does not require anaesthesia.
  • Is a completely non-invasive fat reduction procedure.
  • Eliminates the need for incisions.
  • Offers technicians a way to reduce a client’s fat without using a laser or needle.
  • Uses low temperatures to reduce the amount of fat in a specific area (fat-freezing temperatures range between 2 and 7 degrees Celsius).
  • Requires no downtime.
  • Eliminates the risk of the client developing an infection, visible scarring and serious complications.
  • Can be performed alone or with other procedures.
  • Decreases the visibility of cellulite.
  • Treatment sessions are relatively quick, usually lasting less than an hour, which is why some people refer to it as a lunchtime procedure.

Chelsea Cosmetics in Melbourne, Australia, Uses Zeltiq CoolSculpt Technology

Zeltiq’s dedication to excellence places it at the top of the list for fat reduction via cryoplipolysis. This dedication is evident in their desire to continue providing clients with results that surpass their competitors by investing more into research and development than many of them. It is this dedication, treatment efficacy and widely proven results that make Zeltiq’s CoolSculpt technology Chelsea Cosmetics’ number one cryoplipolysis treatment choice.

The CoolMini Applicator Allows Technicians to Treat Smaller Areas of the Body

One of Zeltiq’s most recent developments is their CoolMini hand piece applicator. Upon comparison, it is clear that Zeltiq’s hand piece is far superior to its competitors. The competitor’s hand piece is deep and it uses high suction, which makes the fat-freezing process somewhat uncomfortable for the client. Furthermore, due to the design of the competitor’s hand piece, suction failure is a frequent occurrence. This suction failure decreases the effectiveness of the fat-freezing device, thus, negatively affecting the client’s results. Although this suction failure influences every client’s result, it is the most detrimental to the results of those who have tighter skin in their treatment areas.

The CoolMini Difference

Zeltiq’s new hand piece uses high skin-to-surface contact, which means less suction is necessary to attain the results a client desires. In addition, this decrease in the amount of suction necessary means that the client remains comfortable throughout his or her CoolSculpting treatment session.

Double Chin Reduction Using the CoolMini Applicator

Using the CoolMini hand piece, which is a small, uniquely designed and highly precise applicator, a Zeltiq technician targets the submental fat that is responsible for creating the double chin. This cryoplipolysis double-chin reduction procedure also includes CoolSculpting treatment of the client’s neck.

Following a fat-freezing treatment on the neck and chin, there is no downtime, so the client is able to return to his or her daily activities directly following the treatment session.

What Makes the Zeltiq CoolSculpt Machine Superior to Other Fat-freezing Machines?

More than a decade ago, Zeltiq CoolSculpt introduced fat reduction via cryoplipolysis. For years, Zeltiq remained unchallenged in the fat-freezing market, which is most-likely why their fat-freezing machine, applicators and techniques are superior to the other brands that are currently available.

In addition, Zeltiq manufactures its machines in the U.S. and the fat-freezing machines that are manufactured in other countries around the world attempt to mimic the results that technicians can achieve with the Zeltiq CoolSculpt machine, to no avail. Furthermore, Zeltiq CoolSculpt is the only FDA-cleared and TGA-approved cryolipolysis technique available.

The Cons of Using CoolSculpting for Fat Reduction

Using the Zeltiq CoolSculpt machine for fat reduction purposes offers clients less downtime and fewer risks than traditional liposuction, however, as with all procedures; there are some cons to consider.

Cons of cryolipolysis treatments include:

  • For optimal results, most clients need at least two, but possibly three, fat-freezing treatments. To be effective, these treatment sessions must be scheduled several weeks apart.
  • It can take up to 6 months after the last fat-freezing treatment for a client to see his or her final results.
  • When a client requires fat-freezing treatments on a couple of larger areas of the body, CoolSculpting may not be the best choice. For economic reasons, these clients should consider having liposuction instead.

Who Should Consider a CoolSculpting Treatment in Melbourne, Australia?

Men and women who would like to eliminate excess fat in troublesome areas without surgery may want to consider having a fat-freezing treatment.

Physical characteristics that make someone an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting include an individual who:

  • Has enough pinchable fat to place within the CoolSculpting applicator.
  • Is not looking to lose weight, but instead to solve contouring issues resulting from excess fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise.
  • Has a Body Mass Index (BMI) that is below 25.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

People who have pacemakers, poor circulation or defibrillators are not good candidates for fat-freezing procedures.

Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant must wait until they have birthed their baby and finished breastfeeding to have a CoolSculpting treatment.

An individual who has any skin condition (e.g., dermatitis, eczema) or wound in the treatment area must wait for the issue to resolve before having a cryolipolysis treatment in that particular area.

Personalised CoolSculpting Treatment Packages

Each client is unique, which is why the experienced Zeltiq technicians at Chelsea Cosmetics create every client a personalised CoolSculpting treatment package. By customising packages, Chelsea Cosmetics can provide clients with exceptional care and amazing results at a fair price.

An Initial Consultation for Cryolipolysis at Chelsea Cosmetics in Melbourne, Australia

Since clients do not receive any type of anaesthesia during their fat-freezing treatment, they can drive themselves home or use for-hire transportation following their procedure.

The Zeltiq technician wants to know what the client would like to accomplish with cryolipolysis treatments. It is vital for the client to provide a clear picture to the technician; otherwise, it is unlikely that the technician will be able to achieve the results the client desires.

If the client decides to proceed with a fat-freezing treatment, he or she may be able to have a treatment session directly after the initial consultation.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment at Chelsea Cosmetics?

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the technician places a portion of the fat in the treatment area between two panels. Once in place, these panels begin to cool, reaching 2 to 7 degrees Celsius rather quickly. Cryolipolysis treatments help the technician sculpt the client’s body to create contours that are more desirable.

A Fat-freezing Treatment: Step-By-Step

  1. A fat-freezing treatment can take anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes. A client’s treatment session length depends specifically on the number and size of the areas receiving treatment.
  2. The client lies down.
  3. The technician uses a pen to map out the specific areas to target with the applicator.
  4. Before beginning cryolipolysis, the technician places a protective gel pad over the area of skin receiving treatment.
  5. The technician applies the paddle.
  6. Using suction, the paddle gently pulls the skin and fat inside.
  7. The temperature of the tissue inside the paddle drops to somewhere between 2 and 7 degrees Celsius. When the temperature drops, the fat cells begin to die.
  8. Once the client completes his or her treatment session, the technician removes the paddle and massages the treatment area. Massaging this area jumpstarts the body’s excretion of the dead fat cells.

Does Fat Freezing Hurt?

Initially, clients should expect to feel some discomfort; however, once their skin adjusts to the temperature of the device and the pressure it creates, the treatment is practically pain free.

Potential Complications Following CoolSculpting

Although Zeltiq CoolSculpt is one of the safest cryolipolysis treatments available, as with every procedure, there are potential complications and risks to consider. This is true for fat-freezing treatments as well.

Risks and potential complications following cryolipolysis include:

  • Frostbite or potentially permanent indentations – If the technician is inexperienced and places the protective pad and applicator incorrectly, the client may develop frostbite or permanent indentations in the treatment areas. These issues may also arise if the technician neglects to monitor the client during his or her CoolSculpting treatment.
  • Sagging skin – After eliminating the underlying fat, some clients have lax skin in the treatment areas. For the most part, lax skin usually only affects older clients because they have less skin elasticity than younger clients do. This lack of elasticity results because, with age, collagen production slows. Nonetheless, clients who have loose skin can have a skin-tightening treatment to reduce its laxity and make their skin more firm.
  • Numbness – After a fat-tightening treatment, approximately 67% of cryolipolysis clients experience numbness in their treatment areas. This numb sensation can last for up to 8 weeks.
  • Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) – There is a small chance that there will be an increase in the amount of hardened fat in the treatment area. Although highly unlikely, if this complication should occur, the surgeons at Chelsea Cosmetics may use liposuction or an energy treatment to resolve the problem.

CoolSculpting FAQ

What exactly is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, or ‘fat freezing’, is a highly effective and non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses cold treatment to sculpt the body and reduce unwanted fat cells. A nonsurgical medical intervention, CoolSculpting has no associated recovery time, one of its many benefits over traditional liposuction. Additionally, it has been shown to be particularly effective for small areas, such as the chin, hips, and even post-liposuction irregularities, which can all be targeted with CoolSculpting. Numerous studies show that CoolSculpting is one of the most effective and non-invasive fat reduction procedures, with no surgery and no downtime required to help remove extra fat cells from beneath the skin.

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

Here at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne, we are thrilled to now offer CoolSculpting as the cutting-edge technology for getting rid of stubborn fat. It is a totally non-invasive liposuction procedure, eliminating the need to use knives, needles, or even lasers.

  • Safe and effective.

Is CoolSculpting TGA-Approved?

The popularity of CoolSculpting as a fat removal procedure is markedly increasing in Australia. The approval of the technique by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) branch of the Australian Government in 2015 testifies to the procedure’s safety and effectiveness. CoolSculpting has great procedural accuracy for small areas like the double chin, muffin top, or post-liposuction irregularities.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

The most popular area for targeting with this technology is CoolSculpting the stomach, closely followed by CoolSculpting the thighs. Although highly successful at producing a ‘sculpted’ effect in smaller areas, CoolSculpting neck or CoolSculpting arms processes are not as popular as the abdomen and leg procedures.

CoolSculpting abdomen and CoolSculpting love handles are two other very common areas that can be treated with this fat freeze machine. CoolSculpting abdomen can be done using a large applicator which can do two areas together at the same time, thus halving the time required to treat same areas.

Can CoolSculpting treat Delicate Areas?

CoolSculpting is suitable to be used on most of the areas of the body, including smaller, more delicate areas which weren’t treatable in the past. As technology continues to develop, an area which is becoming more popular for targeting through CoolSculpting is the ‘double chin’.

CoolSculpting for double chin reduction has its own unique applicator which is smaller and more precise than the rest of the CoolSculpt applicators. Treatment of the neck is included in this procedure, which typically shows results after one to three sessions. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment - Freeze away your stubborn fat today.

How Does Coolsculpting Work?

Extreme low temperatures (between 2-7 degrees Celsius) are used in CoolSculpting to produce localised reduction of fat deposits: this process of using cold to reduce fat cell volume is called cryolipolysis. The CoolSculpting procedure achieves this process by placing a fat roll between two panels and quickly cooling it to freezing temperatures. This technique allows the technician to sculpt and shape the patient’s body into more desirable contours.

Does Coolsculpting reduce fat fold thickness?

Researchers have found cryolipolysis reduces the treated fat fold thickness by as much as 25%, with results continuing to improve over six months after the treatment.

When will I see the results from Coolsculpting?

Within several weeks of the treatment, the dead, frozen fat cells pass out of the body through the liver—the full extent of the fat loss results are thus revealed in three months. Results will continue to improve over six months after the treatment.

Can you target cellulite with Coolsclulpting?

The appearance of cellulite on the legs, arms, and buttocks, as well as excess fat beneath the chin, can all be targeted using this method.
