Cryotherapy And Fat Freezing Treatments
Cooltech® is the most advanced system in the world today utilising cryolipolysis, a medical treatment for destroying fat cells. This type of treatment is more commonly known as fat freezing or cryotherapy. This non-invasive procedure selectively targets and eliminates the fat cells permenantly by freezing them without damaging any of the surrounding tissue.
Cooltech applicators are used to gently suction in the target area and decrease the temperature in a controlled manner leading to the death of fat cells. This results in up to 40% of the fat being removed in the treated area per treatment. In the weeks that follow, as the fat cells die, they are safely removed by your body’s natural immune system processes. Your body adjusts to the newly removed fat cells and you start to see a more sculpted body shape without those unappealing fat bulges. Clients can begin to see results in as little as 15 days.
The Cooltech system designed by Cocoon medical has 6 different applicators fashioned to adapt to all areas of the body enabling one’s figure to be completely remodelled.
More than 1,000,000 successful Cooltech body sculpting treatments have been performed worldwide with an overall satisfaction rate of 95%. Today the Cooltech system is available in aesthetic medical practises in more than 40 countries.
Some of the more problem areas we treat are below:

What Can I Expect From Fat Freezing?
To begin, the target areas will be marked on your body to ensure correct placement of the applicator. Once you are settled in comfortably, a Coolpad (anti-freeze membrane) is placed on the skin surface to protect it. After positioning the applicator, the fat pocket is drawn up into the ‘cup’ of the hand piece.
There will be some tightness felt by the vacuum pressure and a tingly cold sensation for only 10 minutes until the entire area is numbed by the low temperature. When the applicator is removed, the treated area will feel cold and firm to the touch.
A 5 minute after-treatment massage will help restore the frozen fat layer back to normal and will also assist in optimising your weight loss results. The treated area might remain tender and there may be slight intermittent tingling or numbness for around 4 weeks afterwards. This is normal and a good sign the treatment has taken effect. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after as it is a non-invasive procedure. This is one of the reasons that fat freezing or cryotherapy is such a sought after service.
How Many Cryotherapy Treatments Will I Need?
The Cooltech fat freezing process goes for 70 minutes however, including preparation and/or if the treated area is small the times will vary. At total body contourinf we know tht you want results fast and so we have increased treatment times for each session allowing time for your body to be in the optimum fat freezing zone for the entire duration of your treatment. A lot of fat freezing clinics in Canberra include the cooling down and warming up process as part of your service, at Total Body Contouring we make sure this isn’t the case. Clinical studies from around the world have shown that Cryolipolisis consistently achieves, on average, a 25-40% reduction in the size of the treatment area from a single session.
The full effect of the procedure usually takes 2 to 3 months to develop. You can opt for a second treatment to see an even better result, although the results won’t be as dramatic as they were for the first session.
A maximum of only 3 sessions can be performed on the same area and needs to be spaced 10-12 weeks apart. During the consultation you will be advised of the best treatment plan to suit your needs. We want you to be happy with your results so offer a full body analysis and consultation before we begin so you can get optimal results in the shortest time possible.

How Does Cooltech (Fat freezing) Work?
The Cooltech procedure utilises cryolipolysis technology. This is based on the principle that fat cells (adipocytes) are vulnerable to low temperatures whereas nerves, skin, muscle and other body tissue are preserved. Freezing adipose tissue results in controlled cellular death (apoptosis of adipocytes). The Cooltech Eski-design applicators have an adjustable vacuum that acts by selectively encapsulating the fat tissue in its interior and cooling the area in a controlled manner which activates apoptosis. The built-in safety sensors maintain a constant target temperature that prevent unwanted side effects. All the applicators work at a temperature that oscillates between 3 °C and -8 °C. The difference is due to the temperatures required in the different target areas and the thickness of the fat folds.
The Cooltech system has 6 different applicators, correlating with specific areas, designed to sculpt and contour the body with maximum results. For example, the Double HP is designed exclusively for treating large abdominal areas while the Tiny HP is perfect for those smaller pockets of fat under the chin or where the armpit meets the arm.
