A Cool New Treatment For Flab

From our clinical experience and encounter with our clients, we are aware that there is a very big proportion of our clients who are so keen to lose their fat bulges. They are generally in the healthy weight range and keep a sensible lifestyle. Their weight has been stable for many years and despite all they can manage and balance in their busy schedules, the fat bulges just will not go away. This makes looking good in skin-tight dresses a distant hope. For men, they simply feel fat whenever they sit and their tummy fat is the main reminder. As much as our clients want to achieve a better body shape, they are also unwilling to undergo surgery of any sort. They neither have the time for any recovery phase, nor are they willing to accept any risks, no matter how unlikely, associated with surgical procedures like liposuction, etc.

Zeltiq Coolsculpting has proven to be a very effective non-surgical, non-invasive option to combat flab. With the Cryolipolysis technology that cools fat down to the critical near-zero temperature, fat cells crystallize and “die off” in a process medically known as apoptosis. This is painless, and at first glance, you will not notice that anything has changed internally. As your body goes to work clearing away the dead fat cells, the unwanted fatty tissues are flushed out of your body harmlessly and painlessly. It has been documented repeatedly that the amount of fat removed is between 20 to 25% per treatment. This is a significant milestone and has garnered the attention of both medical doctors, scientific researchers, health bodies (US FDA, Canada and Europe) and most importantly, patients around the world. Some clinics quote satisfaction rate of up to 90%, again a milestone in itself.

Painless? No surgery? No recovery needed? Suitable for most patients? Yet effective? What would have sounded incredulous just 3 years ago is today a reality. Zeltiq Coolsculpting carries out on-going research to further refine their Cryolipolysis protocols, making the fat freezing process even more effective. Currently, there are applicators that will fit most areas of the tummy, love handles, arms, thighs and back. We are told that more applicators will be introduced in good time, for many more areas such as the chin and cheeks. We will update our clients at the appropriate time.
