CoolSculpting Treatment under the best cosmetic surgery in Pakistan

CoolSculpting, the cutting edge, non-invasive, fat freezing technology, has been introduced in Pakistan and is exclusively available at few dermatology clinics including COSMETIQUE.

In COSMETIQUE, we use a latest machine manufactured by ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc. USA, to freeze the fat under the skin without damaging the skin itself. With this revolutionary technology, fat cells are frozen to death. There is no need for local or general anesthesia and the procedure is performed in the comfortable environment of our state-of-the-art clinic in DHA, Lahore. No cut, no bleeding and no hospitalization or prolonged recovery is involved. Patient goes home in about one hour if one area is treated.

The cryolipolysis mechanism involves freezing the inside of these cells that makes the inside liquid of cells (cytoplasm) crystallize. When the treated area is warmed (thawed), these crystals puncture the cell membranes of the fat cells, thus killing these cells. As you may be aware of the fact that the fat cells do not multiply after adolescence and the number of fat cells remain stable but the individual fat cell can increase in size if we eat too much – making us fat. Once these fat cells are killed, they release fatty acids which are removed (metabolized) by the body. Zeltiq’s coolsculpting is the first & the only medical device in the world which is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat bulges that may not respond to diet or exercise, using this patented technology.

Although CoolSclupting in Pakistan is relatively new, it is around since 2005 and the company has strategically grown the CoolSculpting procedure to become the #1 non-invasive body contouring procedure. In the U.S. alone, more than 22.4 million people are interested in the CoolSculpting procedure for fat reduction. It generates unprecedented industry buzz, securing hundreds of headlines annually and leveraging social media presence, generating 3.4 billion consumer impressions and a 97% favorable online brand sentiment rating. CoolSculpting Web sites see over 100,000 global visitors each month. ZELTIQ has shipped CoolSculpting systems to over 60 countries worldwide. In 2014, ZELTIQ was recognized as the #1 medical device company and 24th overall on Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies both public and private in North America.

COSMETIQUE being the largest and most advanced center for liposuction & cosmetic surgery in Pakistan, is proud to introduce Zeltiq Coolsculpting procedure in Lahore, Pakistan to it’s valuable patients from across the country including Islamabad, Karachi and all surrounding areas. We understand that patients from all over Pakistan and many neighboring countries rely on us to provide them with the best & the most up-to-date treatments available in the world – and that has always propelled us to bring the cutting-edge technology to serve our patients. We look forward to seeing you in consultation to get rid of your un-wanted fat without surgery using Coolsculpting in Pakistan.

The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses precisely controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn (resistant) fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look great from every angle. Developed by renowned scientists of Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, the FDA-approved procedure known as CoolSculpting® uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat cells, without surgery, and little to no downtime. The reduction in fat cells in the treated area provides noticeable, and lasting results to help you look and feel your very best. Renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based. Sometimes, no matter how intense your workout or strict your diet, you can’t seem to ditch stubborn fat. We all have certain trouble areas where flab builds up and doesn’t shed, despite our best efforts. Wouldn’t it be great if you could reduce those problem areas without the traditional methods like diet and exercise? Now you can. Our highly qualified medical staff at Cosmetique has the technology to administer a procedure that’s safe and comfortable – and provides you with results that you’ll absolutely love. Within one treatment, you’ll be on your way to achieving the sleek, toned body that you’ve always dreamed about. CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity; instead, it is designed for spot treatment of “problem” areas such as love handles, back fat, bra rolls, and stomach rolls.
How does CoolSculpting/Cryolipolysis works?
Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® technology enables us to precisely target fat cells beneath the skin ie. Subcutaneous fat, and cool them to temperatures that trigger their natural death (apoptosis). This process, known as Cryolipolysis®, results in the treated fat cells becoming crystallized (frozen), and actually die. Because however the fats crystallize faster than normal cells, there is no damage to skin, nerves or other surrounding tissue. Over time as the treated fat cells shrink and die, your body naturally metabolizes them, eliminating these dead cells, and leaving a more sculpted you. Diet or exercise can only reduce the size of the fat cells/adipocytes, with CoolSculpting®, the treated fat cells are dead as a result of apoptosis and are than permanently removed from the body as a result of normal body metabolism.
CoolSculpting VS Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires individuals to undergo general anesthesia. It works by using large tubes to pull out fat from targeted areas of the body, leaving individuals with immediate results. However, it’s an invasive procedure and can require a week or two of recovery. CoolSculpting® DOESNOT REQUIRE SURGERY (NON-INVASIVE), DOESNOT REQUIRE ANESTHESIA and therefore has no downtime.

CoolSulpting is a gold standard for non-surgical removal of sub-cutaneous fat.

CoolSulpting VS diet and exercise

CoolSculpting® cannot be a substitute of either of these, but rather act as an aid that can help you accomplish your goals. Diet and exercise can help reduce the size of fat cells, but they don’t permanently remove them.

CoolSculpting® freezes off fat cells leading to apoptosis/cell death, enhancing your diet plan and serving as great encouragement for continuing a healthy lifestyle.

What is the difference between fat reduction and weight loss?

It’s a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They’re not.
When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.

However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can’t get bigger.

And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you’ll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.

Convenient and comfortable

A cycle lasts only 60 minutes, making it quite possibly one of the best-used hours of your life. Many report feeling a burst of cold air, followed by dull pressure. During the session, patients can read, get work done – or even sleep!

Am I a good candidate?

The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas, they’d like to get rid of. Request a one-on-one consultation with a CoolSculpting physician who will determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.


People who have a disease that is made worse by cold or have hernias in the area to be treated should not have Coolsculpting. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions, number of cycles/session needed, and your ultimate goals. Create a customized treatment plan, in person, with your physician that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
How long is a cycle of treatment?
A typical CoolSculpting cycle lasts 60 minutes. During the procedure, the doctor gently pinches the fatty area between the CoolSculpting applicator arms. The applicator then cools the area to a temperature that causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, but which does not harm surrounding tissue.
How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
Your CoolSculpting physician will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. You and your provider may schedule additional sessions or cycles in order to meet your goals. Many people read, check email, or even take a nap during their sessions. (One cycle duration is one hour, you can plan more than one cycles in one session). Many see results after just one treatment, but others may need a few to reach their specific goals. A trained member of our staff will work with you to customize an appropriate plan during your initial consultation, in which treatment areas and the number of sessions as well as number of cycles per session will be determined.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they undergo a cell death process known as apoptosis and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body as a result of normal metabolism. Once the treated fat cells are dead, they’re gone for good. Hence CoolSculpting reduces fat, by completely eliminating the adipocytes.
What happens to the frozen fat cells (adipocytes)?
After the fat cells are targeted and frozen, your body naturally and gradually sheds them. They become processed and eliminated on their own over the course of six months. Unlike with diet and exercise, fat cells actually die by a process known as apoptosis and are permanently gone from your body as a result of body metabolism. You’ll literally freeze them away and be left with a toned, firm body!
What is the recovery time? Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical (non-invasive), so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over. So, we can call it a “Lunch Time Procedure”.
Side effects of CoolSculpting
There have been no serious side effects reported so far. During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you. The bruising may be because the CoolSculpting device sucks the fat against the cooling device. These problems normally resolve within a week. Studies have shown no changes in blood lipid levels or liver function. The numbness is not associated with nerve damage. A study of 528 patients that underwent a total of 2,729 cycles showed only three cases of mild or moderate pain, which resolved within 4 days[1]. [1] W. G. Stevens, L. K. Pietrzak, M. A. Spring, Broad Overview of a Clinical and Commercial Experience With CoolSculpting, Aesthetic Surgery Journal, volume 33, issue 6, 2013, pages 835–846. Another study of 518 patients showed 4% experienced severe pain during the first 5 minutes of treatment, with the remainder reporting mild to tolerable pain[2]. [2] Christine C. Dierickx, Jean-Michel Mazer, Mila Sand, Sylvie Koenig, Valerie Arigon, Safety, Tolerance, and Patient Satisfaction With Noninvasive Cryolipolysis, Dermatologic Surgery, volume 39, issue 8, 2013, pages 1209–1216. There have been a small number of patients (about 1 in 20,000 treatments) that report a paradoxical increase in fat thickness[3]. [3] H. Ray Jalian, Mathew M. Avram, Lilit Garibyan, Martin C. Mihm, R. Rox Anderson, Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia After Cryolipolysis, JAMA Dermatology, volume 150, issue 3, 2014, pages 317. A 2015 analysis of the available research concluded that CoolSculpting “presents a compelling alternative to liposuction”, “appears to be safe in the short term”, and “results in significant fat reduction”.
What About frostbite?
A common concern is frostbite, or other damage to the skin. This is not a problem, as you need far colder temperatures (-10°C/14°F) to cause that type of damage. CoolSculpting uses temperatures that do not immediately kill off the fat cells, but rather trigger the natural process of cell death (apoptosis). That’s why CoolSculpting takes weeks or months for the full effect to be seen.
How much time is required to see CoolSculpting results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as four weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months, but your body will flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Do I need to follow a certain diet and exercise plan or special supplements after the procedure?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment.
What if I regain the weight down the road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas. You will however have fewer fat cells in your treated areas, so most patients see increased tone in treated areas, even after gaining weight.
