Body shaping is a type of non-surgical non-invasive cosmetic treatment that helps to remove the excess fatty deposits or stubborn fat cells present in specific areas of the body to achieve a desired attractive body shape.
Coolsculpting or cryolipolysis is the most commonly used term for body shaping treatment for fat reduction in Melbourne. This technique freezes the fat deposits underneath the skin to a specific temperature, which kills and breaks down the fat cells and gives a perfect shape to the body.
Since it is a non-invasive procedure, body shaping or cool sculpting treatment doesn’t involve any cuts, surgical instruments or anesthesia. This makes it the most feasible method of reducing stubborn fat cells present underneath the skin.
The cool sculpting fat reduction treatment method mainly targets the stubborn fat deposits present in specific body areas that are difficult to remove despite regular exercise and dieting. This treatment has fewer risks and no side effects when compared to other traditional methods of surgical fat reduction called liposuction. Coolsculpting body shaping treatment is swift and secure with easily manageable short term side effects.
What is cryolipolysis or cool sculpting?
Coolsculpting is the brand name for the cosmetic fat reduction treatment called cryolipolysis. This treatment has been approved by TGA & FDA for non-invasive fat reduction and body shaping.
Our fat cells get more affected by freezing temperature than any other cells in the body. In this technique, the fat cells present in specific areas of the body are frozen to a specific temperature. This action breaks down and dissolves the fat cells. This action doesn’t damage or cause any harm to other cells in the body, therefore, it is a secure procedure that targets only the fat cells leaving other healthy cells as it is.

How is it done?
The cryolipolysis procedure is mainly conducted at the Nitai Clinic under the supervision of an experienced cosmetic physician and controlled circumstances. This allows the patient to achieve the best body shaping outcomes from the treatment.
The shape and size of the fat deposits are first assessed and analyzed by the doctor. Then the specific area is targeted and outlined with a marker pencil. There is no need for anesthesia during the procedure, therefore, the patients remain awake and observe the procedure as it is done.
After marking the area, the doctor uses the TGA & FDA approved handheld device called the applicator to freeze the fatty layers underneath the skin in the targeted area.
First, the gel pad is applied to the area to protect the skin, then, the fatty bulge is vacuumed or suctioned into the hollow opening of the applicator. The patient may feel a mild pulling or tugging sensation as the vacuum is applied. Some other sensations that the patient may experience include intense cold, stinging, aching, tingling, and cramping. These sensations generally lessen in their intensity after 5- 10 minutes as the temperature drops in the target area and the arm becomes numb.
The layers of fatty deposits gradually cool and freeze to a specific temperature between 31.2 and 40.2 degrees Fahrenheit. This process can take about one hour. After the fat cells are cooled and broken down, the applicator device is removed from the target area. The doctor may massage the area for a few minutes to further accelerate the breakdown of the frozen fat deposits.
How are the stubborn fat cells destroyed?
The cryolipolysis technique mainly works on finding the fat cells that are more susceptible to break down and damage from freezing temperature. Once these cells are identified they are then targeted with the freezing temperature. The cooling action injures these fat cells. This triggers the inflammatory response from the body, which results in the death of these stubborn fat cells. These dead fat cells are then removed by the body via the natural biological process.
Treating a specific target area takes about 60 minutes. It mainly depends on the area which the patient wants to target and the lyres of fat cells in that area. The patient may need to undergo two or more treatment sessions for fat reduction in Melbourne to achieve the desired fat-free and attractive body shape.
Doctors recommend that doing regular exercise along with the body shopping treatment can further accelerate the process of fat cell reduction from the body and help you achieve an attractive body shape.
