CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis is a FDA approved medical technology that safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Fat cells are targeted at an extremely low temperatures of -13° C under controlled conditions. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, the body begins to naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells through body’s natural waste disposal mechanism. The procedure results in a significant reduction in the fat layer thickness below the skin surface, leading to a better-proportioned body.
During a CoolSculpting procedure, the master body specialist will place the vacuum applicators onto the area within the framework. During the first few minutes, you will feel a slight pressure and an intense cold on your skin. The cold will begin to subside after. As the technology only focuses on freezing fat cells, the other tissues will not be affected.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are permanently gone.
You may start to see changes as quickly as four weeks to six weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after three months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh, submental (double chin), arms, bra and back fat. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
No. Fat freezing is a painless procedure and the only sensation that patients feel during the procedure is that of cold air against the treatment area. Apart from a gentle, tugging sensation against the skin surface, when the applicator is applied against it, there is no pain or discomfort involved.
When the freezing technology of CoolSculpting is applied to areas of excess fat, the treated fat cells are crystallized, turned into dead cells, and are flushed by the body, leaving you more toned and sculpted. The fat eventually gets excreted through your urine.
CoolSculpting is safe, as the procedure is always handled by clinicians who are specially trained. The special training is an in-depth certification process to make sure that CoolSculpting is done correctly and safely. Additionally, the treatment process is always done in medical clinics and under licensed professionals to guarantee the highest standards of care. The CoolSculpting system itself has also built-in safety measures to ensure that your skin or body is not harmed during treatment. For example, when the sensors detect that the skin is too cold, the CoolSculpting system automatically shuts down. Many people feel confident that the CoolSculpting treatment is not only effective, but safe.
WarmSculpting with SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment for the reduction of stubborn fat. It uses laser thermolysis to melt the fat. Each 25 minute treatment can destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery.
WarmSculpting treatments can be performed on the belly, love handles, back, thighs, and under the chin.
Most patients feel deep warmth and tingling sensations intermittently throughout the treatment, which is generally well-tolerated.
Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to eliminate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
There is no downtime for SculpSure treatment. You can resume your daily activities right away!
Body Contouring is not meant to be a weight reduction program for people who are grossly overweight or obese. Body Sculpting aims to achieve better body contours by ridding the stubborn fat cells that resist conventional solutions like diet control and exercise.
Body Contouring is for you, if:
- You are relatively healthy
- You can grab at least an inch of fat, from the desired area, between your thumb and index finger;
- You are not pregnant.
- You have stubborn pockets of fat resistant to healthy diet and regular exercise
To learn more about which type of fat reduction modalities will be suitable for you and if you are a good candidate for this non-surgical fat reduction procedure, consultation and body assessment are required during your first appointment. Schedule an appointment with our doctor today.
The body contouring works equally well for both men and women. The treatment is customisable to cater to individual’s body shape and needs.
Step 1: Consultation – During the consultation, Dr. Kenneth Thean or Dr. Chiam will first understand your area of concern and your fat reduction goals. Your designated doctor will then explain the science behind the technology, walk through with you on the type of procedure that will be suitable for you, the results you can expect from the treatment and answer any questions that you may have.
Step 2: Body Assessment – Before we begin any treatment, our Master Body Specialist will first take a QuantifiCare 360° 3D Imaging video of the targeted area(s), Followed by a 2D 6 position baseline photographs, an InBody weight and body fat analysis, tape circumferential measurements and caliper readings.
Step 3: Treatment – The appropriate applicator will be placed onto the area within the planned framework. During the first few minutes, you will feel slight pressure and an intense cold on your skin. The cold will begin to subside after a few minutes and the area will feel numb. As the technology only focuses on freezing fat cells, the other tissues will not be affected.
Step 4: After treatment – After the cyro treatment cycle has been completed, a non-invasive shockwave therapy that uses low energy acoustic wave pulsations is applied onto the treated areas to break up the fat cells. This also helps to enhance circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage, which increases the elimination of destroyed fat cells.
Step 5: Review – The follow-up appointment is later scheduled within a week after the treatment, followed by 30 days, 60 days and, 90 days. Every follow-up session, we will repeat the 3D, 2D photographs, objective circumferential and caliper measurements of the targeted area and observing the quality of the skin.
After which, patients will undergo a skin tightening treatment that uses special microwave technology to induce immediate shrinkage of the collagen fibres in the dermis and stimulate collagen production which helps to make the tissues firmer and more toned. This treatment also has a cooling system integrated into the hand pieces to ensure the lipocytes are broken down completely with maximum safety for the skin and patient comfort.
After the treatment has been completed, our Body Specialist will review the before and after QuantifiCare 360° 3D images and the overall fat reduction loss with our patients.
The overall CoolSculpting treatment takes about 35 to 45 minutes* for each applicator to complete. Patients can expect up to 24%* reduction in fat.
Detailed body assessment is critical, as the more accurate the measurements are, we are able to recommend a comprehensive, precise treatment plan based on the patient’s anatomy and deliver the best results for our patients.
The objective of this tool is to provide transparency, valuable insights into our patient’s body transformation and assist the patient to keep track of their progress.
No, once the fat cells has been treated, it will be excreted from the body.
Every patient is different. It varies from person to person as each of us is different in terms of physical proportions, problem areas, genetic makeup and dietary habits. A clear picture of treatment requirements will emerge after a personal consultation with Dr. Kenneth Thean and a body assessment complete by our Body Specialist. Based on the findings of the consultation and body assessment, the treatment plan will be finalized. Schedule an appointment for a personal consultation to discuss the possibilities in this regard.
CoolSculpting is ideal for individuals with “pinchable fats”. SculpSure treatments are ideal for people with skin laxity and stubborn fat that is particularly resistant to diet and exercise. A body assessment is required in order to provide an accurate treatment plan. Some patients may also require two different treatment modalities for the different body areas.
Yes. It is possible to simultaneously undergo SculpSure and CoolSculpting procedures on the same day or in the same week, on different parts of the body.

Yes. The fat cells that are eliminated by CoolSculpting will not come back as they are permanently destroyed. However it is important to also maintaining the great results from by sticking to a healthy lifestyle.
Every body is unique, the cost is dependent on variable factors;
- The number of area(s) you would like to target
- The size of the targeted area(s)
- The type of fats
- The patient’s desired results
A detailed body assessment is required in order to provide a suitable treatment plan and an accurate quote.
Post-treatment, a daily 10 minute gentle massage on the treated area helps to activate the disrupted fat cells for faster disposal from the body. Drink lots of fluids and also exercise moderately.
Since it’s a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve surgery or suturing of any kind, you don’t require any anaesthetic for this treatment. During the procedure, all you’ll experience are intermittent phases of cold or hot temperatures – the heat of the laser energy, and the cool of the applicator on the skin to protect it and keep you comfortable.
Fat removal is possible through any of these three methods. Liposuction is a surgical treatment that has to be done under anaesthesia, and sucks out fat with the help of tubes inserted into the targeted fat areas. It is an invasive procedure and takes time to heal. On the other hand, CoolSculpt and Sculpsure are non-invasive, non-surgical FDA approved procedures that use extremely low temperatures and high temperatures respectively to rid the body of fat cells.
