FAQ's

What is CoolTech?

CoolTech is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses cryolipolysis (‘fat freezing’) to target localised pockets of fat that cannot be removed with diet or exercise.

How does it work?

The CoolTech system uses a method known as cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells.

Fat cells are significantly more vulnerable to temperature changes than other types of body tissue. Controlled cooling of the tissue activates apoptosis (controlled cell death) gradually and naturally eliminating stubborn fat from the body.

How is CoolTech different to CoolSculpting?

There are many similarities between the treatments, as Sydney’s leading CoolSculpting clinics we know the excellent results produced by the original fat freezing treatment, and we are seeing comparable results with CoolTech.

With over 1 million successful treatments conducted world-wide (*information supplied by cocoon medical) CoolTech also has an excellent track record for safety and results.

However CoolTech and CoolSculpting have distinct applicators that vary in size and shape. With different sized applicators the most suitable treatment will depend on your figure which is why we always recommend a complimentary consultation during which an experienced clinician will assess your specific requirements and advise the most suitable treatment.

What is the procedure?

The treatment area is clearly marked and an applicator is placed over and around the area which draws the tissue into the ‘cup’.

The CoolTech machine begins to cool the fat in this vacuum for around 60 minutes.

How long does it take and how long does it last?

The procedure takes around 75 minutes. Reduction in the size of the area treated can be seen as early as three weeks after treatment, with full results evident after two to four months.

Results are long term so maintenance treatments are not typically required.

What are the results?

CoolTech achieves permanent results which start to be visible after the first 3 to 6 weeks. It takes between 2 to 4 months to see the full results of the treatment. Clinical studies show that on average 25% of fat cells in the area treated with each area of treatment.

Is there any pre or post care needed?

As the skin has been protected and not frozen during the treatment, there is no skin damage.

No restrictions, no preparation and no post treatment care required.

Are there any side affects?

  • Usually there are no side effects at all.
  • No down time afterwards.
  • A temporary tingling (or numbness) in the bulge being treated.
  • The bulge can remain tender for up to 1 week after the treatment.
  • Some people experience slight bruising in the area treated.

What areas and who can be treated?

  • Abdomen – post pregnancy baby belly
  • Middle age spread that causes unwanted bulging in the front and sides of the abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Rolls of back fat
  • Fat bulges in the upper arms

Who is suitable for the treatment?

  • People who are generally above ideal body weight based on a Body Mass Index scale, but not overweight
  • People who have specific areas of unwanted fat that cannot be removed with diet or exercise.
  • People who want to avoid surgery or downtime.
  • People who are willing to follow a healthy regimen of diet and exercise post treatment in order to maximise the treatment benefits.

Who is not suitable for the treatment?

  • People who are overweight without specific fat bulges.
  • People that have a loose roll of skin without fat. This is most successfully treated with Skin Tightening and Strengthening with Ultrasound.
  • CoolTech is not a weight loss treatment nor does it replace the benefits of a proper diet and exercise.
