What is CoolSculpting?

Cool Sculpting is the name given to a completely new, revolutionary technology that offers an innovative, all-natural approach to cosmetic treatments (particularly, fat removal).


Perhaps one of the best benefits of Mediluxe coolsculpting—and let’s put it right here, at the top of the list—is that it does not use needles. While anesthesia helps, the Cool Sculpting applicator is already equipped with two freezer packs with Freeze Detect sensors that maintain a very cold—and consistently, automatically-controlled—temperature, and without any risk for what would otherwise be freezer burn or even necrosis. In addition, though, the fat you are trying to remove is covered by a protective gel fabric doubles as aspiration facility for the skin.


Because the procedure is, in fact, non-invasive, and does not medical anesthetics, Cool Sculpting is not considered a “surgical procedure.”  Instead of cosmetically—physically–removing fat, the massive cold exposure causes the fat cells to die (apoptosis), which then makes it possible to simply remove them with the applicator.


Because it is non-surgical and non-invasive, Cool Sculpting is almost completely painless; and the only pain you might feel would occur within the first ten minutes of the procedure and only because it is the body’s natural response to the applicator (and the extreme cold).  Once the apoptosis sets in, there is no pain or discomfort at all.

It should also be noted, then, that the same discomfort that you can sometimes feel when restoring feeling (like when your leg falls asleep and then tingles when it starts to “wake up” again) could also accompany the massage that follows the removal of the applicator. This massage, of course, is to help ensure restoration of proper blood flow to the affected area.  Finally, some patients have reported slight itching/tingling within the first days following treatment; this also subsides quickly.


The advanced Cool Sculpting treatment can take up to a week but most will take far less (maybe even one or two days). Regardless of how many days your procedure requires, though, you should be able to resume most of your normal activities within only a few hours.  Just like any other [surgical] procedure, though, you should give yourself time to recover, even if you feel like things can get back to normal.  Basically, maybe return to work but don’t commit to any hard labor or anything that might be too physically stressful, if you choose.
