Non-Surgical Fat Removal | Coolsculpting Treatment in Lahore | Pakistan
CoolSulpting is a gold standard for non-surgical removal of sub-cutaneous fat.
CoolSculpting, the cutting edge, non-invasive, fat freezing technology, exclusively available at few dermatology clinics in Pakistan, including COSMETIQUE.
In COSMETIQUE, we use a latest machine manufactured by ZELTIQÂ® Aesthetics, Inc. USA, to freeze the fat under the skin without damaging the overlying skin. With this revolutionary technology, fat cells are frozen to death selectively and are later cleared by patient’s immune system. This procedure can be performed absolutely without the need of local or general anesthesia. Furthermore, 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 and crystallization of the inside liquid of cells (cytoplasm). When the treated area is warmed (thawed), during a manual massage, these crystals puncture the cell membranes of the fat cells, thus killing these cells. The fat cells do not multiply after adolescence and the number of fat cells remain constant 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 FDA cleared in the world which is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat bulges that may not respond to diet or exercise, using this patented technology.
In the U.S. alone, more than 22.4 million people are interested in the CoolSculpting procedure for fat reduction. 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.

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.
Well known Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, noticed 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 get rid of stubborn fat. We all have certain trouble areas where flab builds up and doesn’t go off, 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 and stomach rolls.
How does CoolSculpting/Cryolipolysis works?
Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® technology enables us to target fat cells beneath the skin, selectively and precisely 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, while the 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/local 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 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
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!
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.
Cost of the procedure
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.
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.
Are the results of CoolSculpting 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.
How long is the recovery time?
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”.
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.
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.

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.

There have been a small number of patients (about 1 in 20,000 treatments) that report a paradoxical increase in fat thickness.

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”.
