CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure to reduce local fat by using low temperature to selectively kill fat cells.
It was first reported and called 'selective cryolipolysis' in 2008,
and it was recognized to reduce fat and obtained FDA*approval in 2010.
In December 2017, the first machine of its kind to reduce fat received approval for use in Japan.
CoolSculpting makes possible a non-invasive, safe and certain way to reduce fat that is difficult to lose through exercise nor dieting.

*FDA: Food and Drug Administration; a US Government agency equivalent to Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

  • Crystallization of fat cells
    Fat is cooled using a temperature range that crystallizes the fat cells. During this process, fat is suctioned up to stretch the tissue so fat layers can be effectively cooled.
  • Apoptosis of fat cells
    Apoptosis is induced within the crystallized fat cells. There are no reports of fat necrosis during this process.
  • Expulsion of fat cells
    Fat cells that have reached apoptosis are consumed by macrophages. Later, after swelling has subsided and over the course of 2 to 4 months, the fat layer is reduced.
  • Features of CoolSculpting

    CoolSculpting is a medical device manufactured by ZELTIQ and developed at Harvard University that allows for spot fat contouring.
    The system freezes fat cells into a sherbert-like state without harming any surrounding tissue, which allow the frozen fat cells to be later naturally eliminated from the body, reducing overall fat.

  • Benefits and Effects of CoolSculpting

    Spot fat contouring treatments have, up to now, mainly been surgical procedures such as liposuction; however, CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that produces effects on par with liposuction without the use of a scalpel.The ease of the procedure and its tremendous effects have established CoolSculpting as the go-to treatment overseas, even among Hollywood stars.

  • The difference of CoolSculpting from other procedures

    Liposuction uses anesthetic, and can have a large burden on the body through the use of scalpels and cannula that can leave scars, as well as pain and swelling which result in downtime.There may be no risks such as downtime or scarring in fat-burning diets. However, it is difficult to selectively slim your body down on exactly where you want to, and there are also concerns over a fat rebound.

    But, by simply attaching the special applicator to the area you want to slim down, CoolSculpting, which is also sometimes called 'no-cut liposuction', can reduce your fat cells in that area by 20 to 30 percent in a single session. There is no need to go back for repeat sessions, unlike other weight loss procedures and treatments.By simply working from the outside of the body to only on the fat cells, there is also no concerns over fat rebound and it leaves no scars.Patients can rest easy since there is almost no pain during and after the procedure.

  • There are many benefits of CoolSculpting.
    • There are many benefits of CoolSculpting.
    • There is no downtime.
    • Does not affect other cells or blood vessels.
    • Since the number of fat cells are reduced, there is little chance of fat rebound.
    • No post-procedure care required.
    • The machine has 7 types of applicators varying in size and shape, allowing attention to detail during the procedure.
    • The fat cells are eliminated through the body's natural metabolic process.

    It takes 2 to 4 months for the effects to be noticeable;
    however, you do not need to alter your lifestyle in any way during that time to achieve a slimmer body.

  • How CoolSculpting works

    CoolSculpting reduces fat by using the higher freezing point of fat cells (4C) over other tissues (skin, nerves, and muscle).
    The procedure uses this difference in freezing point to freeze and destroy only the fat cells while minimizing damage to other tissues.
    The skin, blood circulation and other areas outside of fat are completely unaffected.
    The cells do not go through necrosis; rather, the procedure induces apoptosis (natural cell death due to redundancy), and the cells take 2 to 4 months to be eliminated from the body.

That is the most prominent aspect of CoolSculpting.

Dr’s Point!

Since other areas, such as the upper arms, belly, waist line and back all differ in how the fat
accumulates, in shape & size, whether the fat is vertical or curved, and so on, our clinic allows
for area-specific treatment with the optimal applicators.

CoolSculpting Q&A

How soon can I see the results of the treatment?

What kind of results can I expect from a single session?
It has been reported that 20-30% of fat cells are reduced in the treated area.
(Results vary.)
Should I undergo the procedure more than once?
Many people realize effects with one procedure but there are those who undergo the procedure multiple times in order to achieve their desired figure.
When undergoing the procedure on the same part, you must wait 1-2 months in between procedures.
Do I need special care after the treatment?
No special care is required.
You may exercise or take a bath as you normally would on the same day as the treatment.
We recommend that you get moderate exercise and balanced nutrition to see the best possible results.
I am sensible to cold. Will I be OK with this treatment?
Only the body area that is suctioned by the applicator is subjected to cold temperatures, and there will be no change to the overall temperature of the rest of your body.
Rest assured that your skin temperature will return to normal within a few hours of the treatment.
Will I be left with any pain or swelling?
There is almost no pain associated with CoolSculpting.
There is no pain during the procedure; however, most patients feel a cold sensation and feeling of being stretched in about 10 minutes into the treatment.
The skin will appear red directly after the treatment; however, this redness will disappear after a while.
Redness may persist in some cases, depending on the treated body area; however, rest assured that it will disappear in about a week.
