I know you have been eagerly waiting for this post, and SO AM I!! (You can read about my consultation at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre HERE). Today I am going to share about my Coolsculpting experience at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre and reveal to you the whole procedure…
Aren’t you feeling nervous already?
So, here am I, arriving early in the morning for the treatment. *kiasu*
Although Dr. Cheah has told me that this Coolsculpting treatment is not painful and has no downtime, I couldn’t help but still felt nervous about it. The nurses comforted me and kept assuring me that it is going to be fine. I was brought to a private treatment room and asked to changed into a surgery robe.
Here it is, the magnificent Coolsculpting machine.
The first step of the procedure is to apply a cool get pad on the treatment area. This is said to prevent frostbite. (Wait a minute, Frostbite?)
Frostbite is the medical condition in which localized damage is caused to skin and other tissues due to freezing.
And how does it relate to the procedure?
So here is a simple explanation on:
The Basic Concept of Coolsculpting
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq uses cold energy to permanently destroy fat cells. The Coolsculpting machine works by pulling your fat bulge into a device that has two cooling plates. The fats is held by a strong vacuum. The cooling plates are activated to a specific temperature where fat cells are vulnerable and die, and your skin, nerves, blood vessels, etc are fine. This process is about an hour for each area of treatment.
And so in order to prevent the frostbite due to prolong exposure to the coldness, a gel pad is needed to be applied on the treatment area.
The nurses carefully marked the area of treatment.
During this session, I will be doing the 2 areas, the left and right side of my waist.
The friendly and experienced nurse applied the cool gel pad on.
Now this area is ready for the cold suction.
The nurse turned on the machine and it started generating a sound like a huge vacuum cleaner.
OMG~ I was so nervous!
Is it gonna hurt???
I was instructed to bend my body a little so that the suction head can suck good amount of fats around my waist area.
AND HERE IT COMES!~
It was a pretty funny feeling, it was like a your waist was being sucked by a giant vacuum cleaner. A bit painful at the beginning, but it eventually became numb after about 3-4 minutes. I didn’t really feel the coldness, mainly just NUMB…
A good amount of fat bulge was being sucked out and just the thought of being able to get rid of all these fats forever made me feel really good.
And then we waited for 60 minutes for the Coolsculpting machine to do its miraculous job~
I was lying comfortably on the bed, joking with the nurses.
Replying emails and text messages…
60 minutes TIMES UP!
The Coolsculpting treatment was completed!
Now, I am going to show you some GROSS FROZEN FATS…
It was numb and I couldn’t really feel it at all. I tried to touch it with my hand and it felt like a frozen piece of meat, very cold. The helpful nurse than gently removed the cool gel pad and massaged the treated area. After a few minutes, it softened and back to its normal form.
And then, the same steps were repeated on the other side of the waist.
This time I decided to take a short nap and rest for while. Sleep deprivation is probably the worst side effect of being a mother…
The whole treatment session took 2 hours in total (one hour left and one hour right). The nurses would come in every now and then to check if everything is okay. And because the fats will take several weeks to shrink, I was still the same size immediately after the procedure.
I got my clothes changed, waved goodbye to the nurses and I was ready to go back to work!
Many times, I feel so blessed to live in this era where we have access to all these advanced technologies that helps us to live our lives better. This magnificent Coolsculpting treatment from Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre truly is a blessings to all working mothers like me or whoever that wants to shrink down stubborn fats.
