At your pre-treatment consultation, you will meet with our registered nurse to confirm that MiCool Fat Freezing is the right procedure for you. We will take your medical history and will ask specific questions. You must disclose all information requested. Not to do so could expose you to unnecessary risk.
You will be measured and photographed. This is important to track the success of MiCool treatment.
The areas to be treated will be cleaned in preparation for treatment. No anesthesia is required, but the area to be treated will be covered with gel and a gel pad to protect the surface of your skin from being damaged by the cold.
The targeted tissue is drawn up into one of the two treatment cups where precise cooling of the fat cells is controlled and maintained. This process has been proven to target and eliminate a percentage of the fat cells within the treatment zone. The sub-zero temperature kills the fat cells and triggers a natural metabolic process that gradually eliminates the cells and reduces the thickness of the fat layer over time.
A standard treatment takes just over an hour, after which you can then return to normal activates.
Inside your body, the process of cryolipolysis has already begun, as your body begins to process the destroyed fat cells. Visual changes can occur as early as three weeks after your MiCool treatment, when you begin to see a reduction in the thickness of the treated area. The most dramatic results will be evident after one to three months. Your body will naturally continue to process the destroyed fat cells for approximately four months after your procedure.
