As the first UK Doctor to oversee the launch and have medical responsibility for Coolsculpting® since 2010 Dr Preema Vig is in the fortunate position to have a wealth of experience and familiarity with this unique FDA approved cryotherapy treatment.
CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look great from every angle.
WHAT IS THE COOLSCULPTING® PROCEDURE?
Freeze Away Fat?
The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
The CoolSculpting® fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat for good without surgery or downtime.
After you and your specialist select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap.
RESHAPE YOUR BODY WITH COOLSCULPTING®
You can reduce fat on multiple areas of your body with the CoolSculpting® procedure, and additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored just for you.
The CoolSculpting® fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities immediately.
In the weeks and months to follow, your body naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Safety & CoolSculpting®:
Dr. Preema also has seen the growth of CoolSculpting® copy cats using cheap counterfeit machines and offering cheap treatments, claiming that they fat freeze as well at CoolSculpting®. She has also discovered clinics using the clinical data of CoolSculpting® alongside counterfeit machines. The issue is that cheap machines cannot offer the patient safety that CoolSculpting® and they haven’t been around long enough to collect clinical data for safety. The authentic CoolSculpting® has proven clinical date with excellent safety statistics. This is why Dr Preema invested in this high quality, constantly evolving machine so that she can look after her patients to ensure their safety! if freezing is not 100% controlled with additional technology by having a “freeze detect switch” then front bite and freeze burns can occur. The CoolSculpting® machine will switch off if it detects an error of exact temperature control.
Copy cat machines can cost as little as 20k but the CoolSculpting® machine by Zeltiq costs at least four times as much!
