What is CoolMini?

CoolMini uses a process known as cryolipolysis, otherwise known as fat freezing. This process was developed by the creators of Zeltiq Coolsculpting. It works through the process of freezing the fat cells in the body while leaving the other layers of the dermis unharmed.

How does the CoolMini treatment work?

When exposed to the intensely cold temperature, fat cells encounter natural cell death, or “apoptosis”. Over time, the body’s lymphatic system breaks these fat cells down and naturally excretes them out of the body.

This treatment is US FDA approved and works by using equipment that brings the temperature of the fat cells to almost zero degrees Celsius, leading to their crystallization. The fat cells are then processed naturally by the body and flushed out of it’s system gradually. The process leaves no harm or damage to the tissue surrounding it, making a safe and effective non-invasive treatment for unwanted fat cells.

Which areas can CoolMini treat? Am I a suitable candidate for CoolMini?

This treatment is best suited for the following parts of the body:

  • Double chin
  • Armpits
  • Knee area
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles

It is important to note that cyrolipolysis is not a substitute for fat loss. It is mainly used to target areas of the body with stubborn fat and areas which may be resistant to diet and toning through exercise. A patient with a BMI of over 30 is generally advised against getting a CoolMini treatment. Even after treatment, exercise and a healthy diet is generally recommended in order to maintain results.

What are the benefits of CoolMini treatment over other fat loss treatments?

Some of the benefits of this treatment include:

  • Fat reduction – Patients can expect to see up to 25% fat reduction around target areas.
  • Minimal pain and side effects – a tingling sensation during the surgery, numbness, and swelling may occur but are temporary.
  • Non-invasive procedure – No need for painful surgery or incisions to be made.
  • No downtime – Patients are able to return to their daily routines after treatment.
  • Quick – One session is done in approximately an hour or less, depending on the number of treated areas.
  • Safe – The procedure is US FDA approved. It also leaves the surrounding tissues undamaged during the procedure.

Treatment Procedure

After determining the areas for treatment, the doctor will set the applicator directly on that area. The machine will then start the Cryolipolisys process. The treated area will feel gentle suctions on the skin as the fat cells are frozen. The whole procedure may take as quick as an hour to complete.

Treatment Precautions

This procedure is not advisable for patients with the following conditions:

  • Cold agglutinin disease
  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria

Likewise, patients should inform the doctor of any pre-existing hernia, recent surgery, or allergies prior to treatment to ensure safety.
