Fat cooling is a procedure that can be expected to cause partial thinning by cooling the area where you are aiming for slimming. The human body is made up of about 60% water. Water begins to freeze at 0 ° C, while fat cells that store subcutaneous fat begin to freeze at 4 ° C. This is called cryolipolysis theory.
Partial slimming is expected by freezing and destroying fat cells at a temperature of 4 degrees or less, which is the temperature at which fat cells in the area to be slimmed freeze , using the temperature difference that fat cells start to freeze faster than water. I can do it.
Adipocytes that are frozen and destroyed by fat cooling fall into a state called cell death, in which they cannot act as fat cells. Cell-dead adipocytes are preyed on and digested by macrophages that prey on and digest foreign substances such as cell-dead cells and their debris. Fat cells that are not preyed on by macrophages are excreted from the body together with sweat, urine, and stool from lymphatic vessels and blood vessels.
Since the skin, surrounding tissues, and other cells are damaged below 0 degrees, it is said that if the treatment site is not cooled too much by fat cooling, the skin, surrounding tissues, and other cells will not be damaged and there will be almost no downtime. I will.
Subcutaneous fat is one of the adipose tissues made up of multiple fat cells. Fat cells have the function of storing the ingested energy as fat. The more energy you store, the larger your fat cells will be.
However, fat cooling can reduce the number of fat cells that store energy by freezing and destroying fat cells, so it is said that rebound is difficult unless excessive energy is inoculated.
Cool sculpting is a type of fat cooling machine developed based on cryolipolysis theory. Developed by Zeltic of the United States, it is the pioneer of fat cooling machines.
After placing a special gel pad on the part where you want to slim down, attach a cup-shaped applicator that sucks and stores subcutaneous fat together with the skin, and keeps the temperature inside the applicator at 4 degrees where only fat cells freeze. Partial slimming can be expected by freezing and destroying . In addition, it is a safe machine with a function to automatically stop in the unlikely event that the temperature drops below 4 ° C.
It has been approved by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare for its safety due to its low incidence of side effects affecting skin, surrounding tissues, and other cells other than fat cells, and its effectiveness in reducing fat cells. .. In addition, the safety and efficacy have been recognized by the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration), which is the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan.
Cool Tech Define is a type of fat cooling machine developed based on cryolipolysis theory. A fat cooling machine released after Cool Sculpting, developed by Cocoon Medical of Spain. With the machine introduced for the first time in 2019 in Japan, it is possible to perform treatments at up to 4 locations at the same time, so fat cooling can be performed efficiently .
Place a gel pad exclusively for Cool Tech Define on the part where you want to slim down. The gel pad contains glycerol, which has a high hygroscopic effect. It is said that glycerol permeates into cells and causes a chemical reaction to temporarily dehydrate the treatment site, allowing the treatment to be performed without affecting the skin, surrounding tissues, and other cells other than fat cells .
After placing the gel pad, attach a cup-shaped handpiece that sucks and stores subcutaneous fat together with the skin, and freezes and destroys fat cells at -5 ° C to -10 ° C to expect partial slimming.
Adipocytes destroyed by Cooltech Define die and are preyed on and digested by macrophages, a type of white blood cell. Fat cells that are not preyed on by macrophages are excreted from the body through lymphatic vessels and blood vessels together with sweat, urine, and stool.
In addition, like Cool Sculpting, Cool Tech Define freezes and destroys only fat cells, which is effective because of its low incidence of adverse effects on the treatment site, safety, and the effect of reducing fat cells. Has obtained the CE mark certifying that it meets the EU (European Union) safety and effectiveness standards .
For Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define, the application site and treatment time differ depending on the applicator and handpiece used. The treatment time for Cool Sculpting is 35 to 75 minutes, and that for Cool Tech Define is 45 to 70 minutes .
In addition, cool sculpting can be performed at one place per vehicle. When performing treatment on multiple sites, it takes time because the treatment on one site is completed and then the procedure on another site is performed .
Therefore, it is said that Cool Tech Define, which can perform treatments in 4 places with one unit, is suitable when performing treatments in multiple places. However, if you are a medical institution that has multiple cool sculpting kitchens, you can perform multiple treatments by using multiple cool sculpting units at the same time .
There are 9 types of applicators that can be attached to areas where you want to lose weight. There are eight types of cup-shaped suction type applicators that suck and store subcutaneous fat together with the skin, and one type of flat type applicator that is attached to areas where it is difficult to suck subcutaneous fat together with the skin, such as the outside of the thighs. The applicator to be used and the treatment time differ depending on the part to be treated .
In addition, the Cool Advantage series, which is one of the suction type applicators, has three applicators, Cool Advantage, Cool Advantage Petite, and Cool Advantage Plus, each of which fits according to the curvature of the body called contour. Comes with parts that can be used.
Applicators and contours are said to be more effective for partial slimming if the doctor selects them appropriately according to the treatment site and fat mass .

Cool Tech Define has nine types of suction type handpieces with different sizes and shapes. By using different handpieces depending on the part of the body, it is possible to perform treatments with finely divided parts .
Wearing a large handpiece forcibly may lead to risks such as pigmentation and frostbite, so it is appropriate to use a body measurement tool dedicated to Cooltech Define to perform the procedure before the procedure. Check if .
In addition, since Cool Tech Define can mount four handpieces on the machine, it is possible to perform simultaneous treatment on up to four parts. If you are aiming for slimming in one area, you can perform the procedure in only one area.

Cool sculpting is said to reduce about 20% of the fat cells that can be sucked into the applicator with one treatment, and many people feel the effect with one treatment. However, since there are individual differences in how the effect is felt depending on the site to be treated and the amount of fat, if the effect is not felt in one treatment, a second treatment is recommended for the same site .
If you wish to have a second treatment on the same site, it is recommended to wait about 2 months . However, since the safety of the third and subsequent treatments has not been confirmed, the maximum number of treatments for the same site is two.
Cool Tech Define is said to reduce about 40% of the fat cells that can be sucked into the handpiece with a single treatment, and in most cases you will feel the effect with a single treatment. However, depending on the site to be treated and the amount of fat, 3 to 4 treatments are recommended .
In addition, if you wish to perform more than one treatment on the same site, Cooltech Define recommends treatment with a period of one and a half to two months .

However, there are individual differences in how the symptoms appear, so if you have any concerns after the procedure, please consult your doctor.
If you are concerned about pigmentation , use a drug or machine to peel to promote skin turnover, or use a laser to destroy the melanin pigment that causes pigmentation. Improving deposition is faster .
Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define are said to cause almost no pain during the procedure . However, when the applicator or handpiece sucks fat together with the skin, you may feel a sensation of pulling, stretching, or lightly pinching, or a feeling of coldness or tingling when the skin cools , but it is not enough to require anesthesia. It is said that it is not.
In addition, Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define eliminate the stagnation of blood flow after the treatment and promote the discharge of fat cells that have fallen into cell death, so that the cooled part is loosened. It is said that the more fat you have, the more likely you are to feel the pain of being strongly pinched.
It takes about two months for the effects of Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define to appear.
It is said that it takes about two months for fat cells cooled by Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define to be preyed on and digested by macrophages and excreted from the body together with sweat, urine, and stool as unnecessary waste products for the body. I will. Therefore, it takes time to realize the effect of slimming effect.
Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define have no restrictions on daily life, including exercise, bathing and drinking before the procedure. However, for cool sculpting, it is recommended to wear loose clothing that does not tighten the area to be treated on the day .
One thing to keep in mind after Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define is to avoid overdrinking and eating too much to gain weight . It is said that Cool Sculpting and Cool Tech Define reduce fat cells by freezing and destroying them, making it difficult to rebound.However, if you eat and drink and gain weight, the remaining fat cells will be removed. Enlarge.
Adipocytes are widely present under the skin of the whole body, and the number of adipocytes is most likely to increase around the age of 10 to 18, and it is said that the number of adipocytes is unlikely to increase or decrease significantly after reaching adulthood. However, since fat cells have the function of storing the energy they ingest, the more energy they store, the larger the fat cells become. When the size of enlarged fat cells reaches 130 μm, they cannot grow any further and divide and increase.
Adipocytes are said to be 70 μm to 90 μm when the BMI value is 20 to 21. It is said that when the BMI value exceeds 27, the size of the fat cells reaches 130 μm and the fat cells divide, so be careful not to exceed the BMI value of 27.
Fat cells that have died during the procedure are preyed on and digested by macrophages, and are also excreted from the body as sweat, urine, and feces. Therefore, it is recommended to drink plenty of water after the treatment to promote metabolism .
In addition, it is said that even after being massaged at the medical institution that received the treatment, you can expect more effects by massaging the treated area yourself at home .
Fat dissolving injection is said to be able to destroy fat cells by injecting a drug into the area where you want to lose weight . By destroying and reducing fat cells, the thickness of subcutaneous fat can be reduced and partial thinning can be expected.
In addition, since lipolytic injection can be performed on any part of the skin where the subcutaneous fat is thick, it is possible to perform treatment on the part where the Cool Sculpting Applicator or Cool Tech Define handpiece cannot be attached .
Kratu Alpha is a type of fat cooling machine. There are seven types of cup-shaped applicators that suck and store subcutaneous fat together with the skin. Since each applicator was developed to provide treatment suitable for the body shape of Japanese and Asians, it is said to be the size suitable for the Japanese and Asian systems.
With Kratu Alpha, you can expect partial thinning by attaching an applicator to the part you are aiming for slimming and cooling at -9 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes . In addition, since it is equipped with two applicators, it is possible to perform treatments at two sites aiming for slimming at the same time.
M sculpt is a slimming treatment that can be expected to partially lose weight by irradiating the part aiming for slimming with electromagnetic energy called HIFFM .
HIFFM is an application of the same magnetic field as MRI, which captures a cross section of the body. Irradiating the treatment site with HIFFM causes hypermaximum muscle contraction that cannot be reached by normal spontaneous muscle movement. The body that has caused hypermaximum muscle contraction needs energy to convert the fat stored in fat cells into energy called free fatty acids (FFA) to replenish the energy.
However, it is said that FFA produced by hypermaximal muscle contraction is overproduced and the body cannot consume energy, and FFA accumulates in surrounding fat cells and destroys fat cells .
A medical slimming machine that employs a technology called FMS that generates a magnetic field is a tesla former , which causes contraction by giving stimulation by a magnetic field to muscles and tightens by aiming to improve basal metabolism by increasing muscle mass. It is possible to aim for a new body line.
The magnetic field stimulation generated by FMS is said to act up to about 7 cm under the skin, and the magnetic field stimulation generated by the Tesla former treatment is said to cause about 50,000 strong muscle contractions per 30 minutes .
It is possible to stimulate the muscles in each of the shallow and deep layers, and it is expected that the basal metabolism will be improved by increasing the muscle mass.
Liposuction is an operation to physically remove fat by making a small hole of several mm with a scalpel in the area where you want to lose weight and inserting a thin tube called a cannula . Although it has the advantage of having an immediate effect because it physically sucks fat, there is a risk of scarring, infection, surface irregularities, hematoma, dysesthesia, etc. depending on the skill and experience of the doctor in charge of surgery .
In addition, downtime depends on the treatment site. It is said that it takes about 1 to 2 weeks for facial treatment and about 3 to 6 months for body treatment .
Allergan, Inc., which developed Cool Sculpting, holds a comprehensive course on Cool Sculpting called "Cool Sculpting University" by a specialist instructor at the Allergan headquarters in the United States. In the general course, you will learn from the mechanism of fat cooling treatment to practical training using a demo machine, and you will be awarded a certificate after completing all the courses.
Therefore , if you are a medical institution with a doctor who has been awarded a certificate from Allergan, you can receive cool sculpting treatment with confidence .
Cool Tech Define can be used in 4 places with one unit, so if you want to slim down multiple parts, you can perform the treatment efficiently. However, although Cool Tech Define may be effective once, it is recommended to perform 3 to 4 times depending on the treatment site.
