Cool Slimming

HOW DOES COOL SLIMMING WORK?


Cool Slimming uses controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) that specifically targets fat cells, causing fat cell death. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated by your body via your lymphatic system and processed as waste by your liver.




IS COOL SLIMMING SAFE?


Cool Slimming is a non-surgical, safe and effective way to reduce stubborn unwanted fat. It is suitable to treat thighs, abdomen, flank, and chin area.




WHO IS SUITABLE?


Cool Slimming is used to help remove unwanted stubborn areas of fat that usually resist diet and exercise. It is a non-surgical counterpart to liposuction. Almost everyone is a good candidate. However, Cool Slimming is not designed as a weight loss tool for obesity. During an initial consultation appointment, we will review your concerns along with you medical history, examine the areas of the body that can benefit from the procedure, and make an appropriate assessment.




WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT? DOES IT HURT?


A cool gel-pad is placed over the desired treatment area. A Cool Slim applicator is then used to deliver constant and controlled cooling to the area with alternating pressure for your comforts. For best results, the area is then massaged for several minutes after each session. Although the majority of people feel that the procedure is painless, some people will experience small amount of pressure and cold sensation during the first few minutes of the treatment. The rest of the time is usually spent reading a book, surfing the web, or even taking a nap. A small amount of discomfort can also be felt during the massage portion of the treatment.




ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT?


Yes, the procedure causes permanent fat cell reduction, leading to permanent changes.




WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?


Generally results start to appear 3 weeks after the initial treatment. However, the most dramatic results occur approximately 2-3 months after the initial treatment.




HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?


Each session lasts approximately an hour. Depending on the areas of concern, most people require two sessions to see desired results. These sessions are generally spaced 4-6 weeks apart.




ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?


Typical side effects include numbness, tingling, redness, bruising, swelling, and pain. These are almost always transient. Rare side effects can also occur. As with many procedures, there are some contraindications, including those diagnosed with cryglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobulinuria, and cold agglutinin disease. Talk to your GP or specialist if Cool Slimming is right for you.




WHAT IF I GAIN WEIGHT AFTER THE TREATMENT?


The remaining fat cells that were not treated by Cool Slimming can enlarge. However, the resulting weight gain occurs evenly throughout your body. For best results, you should continue to maintain proper diet and regular exercise routine.









Microneedling

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?


An electric skin needling device, that is shaped like a pen is used. The device is a pen shape, with a single use disposable cartrige which is studded with 12 very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate collagen production. The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. These micro injuries to the skin is what stimulated the cells to produce new collagen, therefore reducing scarring, wrinkles and pigmentation




WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?


Most people will experience redness and mild swelling similar to a mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising. Skin may peel. An oxygeneo session is recommended 1 week after the treatment.




IS MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?


Numbing cream is applied prior to your session, so that the treatment is comfortable.




HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED, AND HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE THE TREAMENT DONE?


Microneedling can be repeated every 4 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage at the beginning. Microneedling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.




WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER TREATMENT?


To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.
