Fat Freezing Coolsculpting to reduce tummy fat at Astique Clinic
I recently went to do fat freezing which is also known widely as cool sculpting at Astique Clinic to target to reduc tummy fat as it is the MOST difficult part to lose. I have been going to the gym and swimming frequently but I seem to just tone up and lose weight on all the other areas except my tummy.
As determined to wear crop top that is in trend nowadays and as a part of my stretch marks removal and tummy firming goals for a nicer tummy. If you would like to check out my blog post on my fractional laser experience with Astique Clinic here it is: http://blog.myfatpocket.com/jessieting/my-experience-of-laser-treatment-for-stretch-marks-at-astique-clinic/
My doctor at Astique Clinic Doctor Celine is a mother of 2. And as a mother, she understand how stubborn stretch marks and tummy fats can be having a loose tummy after childbirth.
There are many versions of fat freezing and many claims to be effective but there is actually many ‘imitation fat freezing machines’ out there. Zeltiq Coolsculpting is the more trusted brand and is what they are using at Astique Clinic for their customers.
Above is how the Zeltiq Coolsculpting looks like. I did coolsculpting before previously but it wasn’t with a doctor and the machine looks different and much smaller than that. After that there is also no visible results after spending lots of money for the session. So I guess it is important for me to warn my readers here about fake machines out there and will not give you results.
Coolsculpting procedure is a medical device, and should only be done in a doctor’s office.
So how does cool sculpting works?
Coolsculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only fat cells. In weeks to follow, the body naturally processes the fats and eliminates these dead cells. This is pretty much the only way that can make these stubborn fat cells gone for good.
No matter how you diet or exercise, the fat cells would only get smaller but it will not disappear.
So when you lose weight, the volume of your fat cells simply decreases but the number of fat cells stays the same.
It will take about 12 weeks to see the best results as the fat cells slowly gets eliminated by the body.
The Zeltiq Coolscupting technology is the only patented Cryolipolysis technology in the market approved by FDA.
This method has no downtime at all as it is considered very non-invasive.
They cleaned the area to be treated thoroughly and then put on a cool gel before starting the treatment. They told me the cool gel is to sooth the skin and to prevent bruising. I have seen other bloggers reviews on cool sculpting before but usually didn’t see that they had put on this cool patch.
The coolsculpting machine went on my stomach quite easily and they make sure that the grip of the fats is good, they put pillows and cushion all around me to make me so comfortable.
Zeltiq Coolsculpting is a lunch time procedure, where you can painlessly reduce stubborn excess fat. No downtime, no needles, no surgery or medication. Zeltiq CoolSculpting effectively freezes away stubborn fat and is suitable for those who have a stable, healthy weight but find it hard to get rid of fat bulges.
Here are some areas that you can get treated for:
- Thighs (inner and outer)
- Hips & Waist
- Muffin top & love handles
- “Bra fat”
Each area of the freezing takes 1 hour and usually the tummy requires 2 areas of treatment so total time spent was 2 hours at Astique Clinic. Time went pass quite quickly, as you can see I was able to reply emails and do work with my phone during the 2 hours. They are so kind to let me charge my phone at the same time too so my phone battery can last me for the rest of the day.
Zeltiq Coolsculpting has been clinically tested to help reduce fat by up to 20% of the treated area. It is very safe as the he delivery of precise cooling affects only targeted fat cells, leaving adjacent tissue unharmed and intact.
The last time I did fat freeze it was also on my tummy(not Zeltiq Coolsculpting) and I didn’t feel anything accept the coldness of the skin after treatment. The suction was a lot stronger this time. After trying out the Zeltiq Coolsculpting, I really felt that there was numbness over the treated areas for about 1 week. Although, there was no bruising at all, but I can feel the effect. There was only slight redness which went away after a few hours.
Zeltiq coolsculpting fat freeze usually would be charge as per area treated for single sessions.
Do call them to enquire.
