What is cool sculpt­ing?

The West Australian - - ARTS -

Do you have other parts of your body that you want to shift fat from — with­out surgery? Cool sculpt­ing could be your an­swer. Dr Glenn Mur­ray, med­i­cal di­rec­tor at Ab­so­lute Cos­metic Medicine, says cool sculpt­ing can be used for dou­ble chin re­moval, the arms, ax­il­lary and bra strap, up­per and lower stom­ach, love han­dles and in­ner and outer thighs.

“Cool sculpt­ing is a non-in­va­sive body-sculpt­ing treat­ment that uses a cool­ing tech­nol­ogy to freeze fat cells to –10 de­grees, which in­duces apop­to­sis (cell death),” he ex­plains. “These dead cells are then elim­i­nated nat­u­rally through the lym­phatic sys­tem over a 12-week pe­riod.”

Dr Mur­ray says one to two treat­ments per area are re­quired. How­ever, this may dif­fer de­pend­ing on the pa­tient’s orig­i­nal size and de­sired goals.
