Freeze fat, get in shape
SOMETIMES, stubborn body fat just does not disappear.
A non-invasive procedure available at Astique, The Aesthetic Clinic works to target areas where stubborn fat lies.
The CoolSculpting by Zeltiq procedure can help shape and contour parts of the body by targeting fat.
It can be used on areas such as the underarms, thighs, back or abdomen.
Based on the United States Food and Drug Administration-approved principle of Cryolipolysis, the process involves freezing fat cells at a low temperature of 3-4 deg C.
These cells become frozen or crystallised and over a period of two to four months, the crystallised fat is passed out through natural bodily functions.
The procedure is fully external, using a device that is placed on the part to be treated and frozen.
Some people may feel initial discomfort as the body may not be used to a sudden cold temperature; but they should get used to it five minutes into the process.
Treatment at the clinic lasts one hour and you can carry on with daily activities right after it.
Depending on the amount of fat lost after the first treatment, follow-up sessions may not be necessary.
One session of CoolSculpting costs $599 nett and includes consultation with a doctor.
