Ask anyone and more likely than not, we all have our unwanted bits, even if we are the most petite- framed or if we spend hours working out at the gym. Body contouring is all about accentuating curves in the right places and reducing unwanted fat bulges.
What Is Coolsculpting?
Since late 2010, fat-freezing has been increasingly popular and is now one of the most sought after and effective non-invasive modalities for targeted fat-loss. Also known as cryolipolysis, some see results even in as little as one or two treatments with this relatively comfortable FDA approved procedure. When combined with an appropriate diet plan and regular exercise regime, the results are permanent and long lasting.
Molly Sims, Kris Jenner and Gretchen Rossi have all been outspoken about their support for the process, and Khloé Kardashian too, has credited part of her revenge body to the magic of cryoliposis.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
Developed, not only by scientists, but by doctors at Harvard Medical School, Coolsculpting is the original patented technology of fat freezing. Coolsculpting works by freezing fat cells underneath the skin to the point of elimination, allowing your body to naturally remove the “frozen” and dead fat cells via lymphatic drainage. It has been clinically tested to help you reduce fat by up to 23% of the treated area, and because fat freezes faster than other cells, there’s no damage to surrounding tissue structures.
Why Choose Coolsculpting?
Individual results may vary, but in general, Coolsculpting offers the following benefits:
- No surgery, no anaesthesia — Fat freeze treatment is a non-invasive, in-office procedure that can be done in an aesthetic clinic in Singapore.
- Zero downtime and recovery — Since the procedure is non-invasive, it offers a remarkable level of patient comfort. You may experience mild tenderness, redness or numbness in the treated area after the procedure. But many patients report that they can get on easily with their day after a session.
- Less-than-an-hour procedure — Compared to liposuction and other fat reduction procedures, a Coolsculpting treatment is much shorter. You’ll be out of out the clinic in less than an hour.
- Can treat multiple areas — Coolsculpting isn’t only for belly fat. This technology can also treat stubborn fat in the arms, hips, thighs, flanks, chin and more.
Are You a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting?
- Good candidates are individuals who are near their ideal body weight. Coolsculpting is not intended to be a weight-reduction program; its focus is on fat loss, not weight loss.
- If you’re looking to reduce fat around visible bulges in your abdomen, thighs or hips but don’t want to undergo surgical procedures, Coolsculpting may be a good option for you.
There is no better way to know whether this procedure is right for you than an in-person consultation with a Coolsculpting clinic like Freia Medical, here in Singapore.
Why Choose Freia Medical?
At Freia Medical we have not one, but two CoolSculpting systems to better address your body contouring needs. Otherwise known as “dual sculpting”, instead of treating one single area at a time, we are able to engage two fat-busting applicators at any point in time.
Dual sculpting greatly reduces patients’ time spent for the treatment process, allowing them to receive their fat reduction procedure and achieve their body sculpting transformation even more quickly.
Inducted as a member of “CLUB 500” that recognizes centres that completed 500 or more cycles of CoolSculpting treatments in the year 2018 alone, Freia Medical is equipped with the full range of the latest generation of Coolsculpting applicators.
As even smaller frame ladies are not immune to unwanted stubborn pockets of fat, the addition of the newly developed CoolAdvantage Petite applicators gives us the complete repertoire. We can address the varying silhouette sculpting needs of anyone, regardless of shape or size.
As our body contouring motto says it all, “If you can pinch it, we can freeze it.”

What is CoolAdvantage™?
CoolAdvantage™ is the second and latest generation of treatment applicators added to the CoolSculpting™ family. It delivers CoolSculpting™’s cooling technology at a lower temperature, reducing treatment time to 35 minutes, instead of the standard 60 minutes with the first generation CoolSculpting™’ Legacy applicators.
What is CoolAdvantage™ Dual Sculpting?
Incorporating CoolAdvantage™ and a second CoolSculpting™ machine into our practice enables patients to treat two areas of the body in one session via “dual sculpting”. This allows patients to receive their fat reduction treatment and achieve their body sculpting transformation even more quickly.
Is CoolAdvantage as effective if the treatment time is shorter?
Clinical studies which compared the CoolAdvantage enhancements with the original CoolCore™ applicator demonstrated 3 key features.
- Shorter Treatment Time: Instead of a full hour, treatment cycles are 35 minutes, cutting treatment time by almost half
- Greater patient experience and comfort: Patients report more comfort with the enhanced cup design.
- More tissue treated: the new design provides a larger cooling area.
Is Coolsculpting a weight management / reduction program?
No. Coolsculpting is not meant to be a weight management program. It is a body contouring transformation program to target / reduce the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20 to 23%. There is no change to fat in untreated areas.
How does Coolsculpting work?
A suction device brings skin and fatty tissue in contact between two cooling panels, to “freeze” the fat cells, thereby destroying fat in the process. All this without any risk to the skin or supporting structures.
Which parts of my body can I treat?
Most people believe that you can only improve your aesthetics with this device targeted around your belly. However, this device targets almost any part where stubborn fat is found. The most popular areas would be the love handles, belly, tummy, arms, saddle back, banana roll, hips, thighs and double chin.
How many fat freezing sessions are recommended for each area?
Between one to three sessions or more, depending on your requirements and amount of existing fat. Some patients may not see success in round one, but find that “second time’s a charm” is largely true.
Would I experience any pain during or after my treatment?
Apart from the sensation of the suction device and brief feeling of cold during the process, you will not feel much pain as the skin is cooled down to the desired temperature. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop or even taking a nap. After the treatment, most patients report that apart from some aching sensation, they were able to return to their work or social activities right away. Most were able to get back to their exercise routine within a couple of days. Very rarely did our patients require any painkiller for the discomfort.
Can I return to normal activities after my procedure?
Yes! The procedure is completely non-invasive, so you can return to normal activities immediately. You might experience mild tenderness, redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness post treatment, but most will find this is hardly noticeable. Our clients are back at their normal activities the very next day. There is usually no downtime.
What do I need to do after my session?
We will show you how to do daily massage to the treated area for faster recovery and best results. Are the results long lasting? When you have your Coolsculpting procedure, the treated fat cells will be eliminated. This process of flushing out of fat cells have been documented to last up to six months. As long as you maintain your weight with diet and exercise, your long-term result should remain stable.
