Safe Fat Freezing in Singapore
Look and Feel your Best
Feeling confident about how you look is a priceless sensation. When you are confident of your appearance, it positively impacts every aspect of how you carry yourself. Building our image is the reason we workout at the gym, maintain a healthy diet or even visit the slimming centre. But, many a time, we seem unable to achieve the expected results. This is particularly true for the problem of stubborn fat deposits in and around our midsection area.
Modern science offers us an explanation for this riddle. By the time we are five years old, the number of adipocytes or fat storage cells we will finally have in our body is, by and large, decided by our genetic programming. Since the number of fat cells in the body is relatively fixed and unchanged, it means that weight gain or loss does not increase of decrease the number of fat cells. The fat cells in our body only increase or decrease in size according to the weight we gain or lose respectively.
Earlier, liposuction was the best solution for people dealing with stubborn fat pockets in the body. But it’s an invasive surgery and also an expensive proposition. Strides in medical science have led to the development of a number of fat reduction technologies that are non-invasive yet effective and safe.
Introducing the Coolsculpting Fat Freezing Technology
CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing technology that has its genesis in the portals of Harvard University and those of Massachusetts General Hospital. Having successfully cleared FDA norms, the procedure has been safely performed upon millions of people all over the world. It has over 50 peer-reviewed medical papers and over 7 million treatment cycles. These clinical papers show patient satisfaction ratings beyond 85% with up to 20 to 25% reduction of body fat in specified areas.
How does it work?
The CoolSculpting procedure is primarily applied on patients having more of the ‘pinchable’ type of fat deposits in their bodies. A cup-shaped vacuum applicator will be placed on the skin surface atop the fatty deposits. Follow up by applying a cooling technology that is patented, and targets fat cells with extremely low temperatures (-13° C), under controlled conditions. Under the impact of extremely low temperatures, the fat cells in the targeted areas, crystallize and die. They are later ejected through the body’s natural waste disposal mechanism. The procedure results in significant reduction in the fat layer thickness below the skin surface, less localized fat and a better-proportioned body.
A Comprehensive Body Solution with Shorter Treatment Time
You have heard of fat freezing and laser thermolysis by now, both technologies help to eliminate fat in a non-surgical procedure that helps you shape your body to the best of its capabilities.
Two Is Better Than One. The dual part of Dual-Sculpting means you can have two different areas treated at the same time during one appointment. This method advancements can deliver a more ‘balance’ and ‘noticeable’ results with greater comfort for a shorter amount of time as more trouble spots can be treated at one time.
Have multiple areas to treat? Depending on the area(s) of treatment, we can apply Ensoul’s Burn & Freeze Contouring Treatment Procedure to target the different parts of the body. This method uses two different fat reduction modalities in one session. For example, we can apply fat freezing technique on the left and right flanks while simultaneously applying laser thermolysis modalities on your thighs.
The art of this technique helps to shorten the appointment times and patients would be able to see more comprehensive results sooner as more trouble spots are treated within one visit.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution. CoolSculpting offers a wide range of applicators which can be optimized to fit different body shapes and sizes especially the harder-to-reach areas.
CoolAdvantage+ Petite Applicator
Designed to target flabby arms, knees, bra fat, under the buttocks
CoolMax + Applicator
Targets larger abdomen, commonly use for volume reduction or de-bulking.
CoolMini + Applicator
Designed for smaller areas of fat like submental area (double chin) or axilla fat (known as armpit or bra fat)
Interchangeably with CoolCurve+, CoolFit, CoolCore applicators, suitable for love handles, back,bra fat, abdomen, under the buttocks and inner thighs
CoolSmooth+ Pro Applicator
Designed ideally for non-pinchable areas of fat (eg. Abdomen, Flanks, Outer Thighs)
The latest CoolSculpting applicator features an enhanced cup design with an a larger cooling feature to increase the direct contact with the tissues and also to maximise patient comfort. With the direct application, treatment time is also reduced significantly.
The Fat Freezing Process
Dr. Kenneth Thean will start by understanding your area of concern and fat reduction goals. After a detailed body assessment completed by our Body Specialist, he will evaluate and assess the suitable treatment plan for you and review what results you can expect from this procedure.
A detailed body assessment will be conducted by our Body Specialist.
- 360° 3D Imaging
- 2D 6-position baseline
- InBody weight
- Body fat analysis
- Tape circumferential measurements
- Calliper readings
The procedure’s framework will be assessed and marked on the targeted area(s).
The appropriate applicator will be placed onto the area within the planned framework. As the technology only focuses on fat cells, the other tissues will not be affected. Relax and enjoy your treatment in our adjustable bed while streaming your favourite Netflix shows.
A non-invasive shockwave therapy that uses low energy acoustic wave pulsations is applied onto the treated areas to break up the fat cells. This process also helps to enhance circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage, which increases the elimination of destroyed fat cells.
Frequently Asked Questions
How soon will I see results?
You will start noticing results as soon as 3 weeks after undergoing the treatment. The results of CoolSculpting procedure will be visible in around 2 to 3 months. However, the destroyed fat cells will continue to be removed from the body for as long as 6 months.
How many treatments will I need for the CoolSculpting?
It varies from person to person as each of us is different in terms of physical proportions, problem areas, genetic makeup and dietary habits. A clear picture of treatment requirements will emerge after a personal consultation with Dr. Kenneth Thean/ Dr Chiam. Based on the findings of the consultation, the treatment plan will be finalized.
Am I the Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not meant to be a weight reduction program for people who are grossly overweight or obese. CoolSculpting is aimed at achieving better body contours by ridding the stubborn fat cells that resist conventional solutions like diet control and exercise.
CoolSculpting is for you, if:
- You are relatively healthy;
- You can grab at least an inch of fat, from the desired area, between your thumb and index finger;
- You are not pregnant.

How does it work and what type of results can I expect?
Since each of us is unique and have our own individual factors, it is important that we develop, after a detailed consultation, a customized treatment plan based upon your specific goals and concerns, and the constraints of your body. Studies have indicated that average fat reduction in people who underwent CoolSculpting was in 20-25% range and is long lasting, especially in people who live a healthy lifestyle.
What are the risks?
CoolSculpting is a relatively safe procedure with minimal health risks attached to it. Common side effects associated with the procedure include tingling, minor bruising of the skin, redness or numbness in the targeted area. However, these side-effects are not permanent and generally disappear within a few days.
What does it feel like?
It’s a painless procedure and the only sensation that patients feel during the procedure is that of cold air against the treatment area. Apart from a gentle, tugging sensation against the skin surface, when the applicator is applied against it, there is no pain or discomfort involved. The treatment generally lasts between half an hour to two hours.
How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting depends upon factors like the size of the targeted area, the number of areas to be treated, the patient’s desired results etc. Visit us and avail a complimentary consultation session today.
Can I do both CoolSculpting and SculpSure together?
Of course, it is possible to simultaneously undergo SculpSure and CoolSculpting procedures on the same day or in the same week, on different parts of the body. Since some fat cells are sensitive to heat and others are sensitive to cold, using both the procedures will help achieve better results.

Difference between COOLSCULPTING & SCULPSURE VS LIPOSUCTION
Fat removal is possible through any of these three methods. Liposuction is a surgical treatment that has to be done under anaesthesia, and sucks out fat with the help of tubes inserted into the targeted fat areas. It is an invasive procedure and takes time to heal. On the other hand, CoolSculpt And Sculpsure are non-invasive, non-surgical procedures that use extremely low temperatures and high temperatures respectively to rid the body of fat cells.
