Are you struggling to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat despite exercising and dieting regularly? You’re not alone. Many individuals in Singapore face the same challenge. Fortunately, there are non-surgical fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting that can help. In this article, we’ll explore the evolution of CoolSculpting technology, what it can do for fat reduction, and how it has improved over the years in Singapore.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses a patented cooling technology – cryolipolysis or fat freezing, to freeze and destroy fat cells. This US FDA-approved procedure is a safe and effective way to reduce stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen or stomach (tummy), arms, flanks, bra fat and back, inner and outer thighs, double chin, buttocks, and knees.
CoolSculpting fat reduction can remove 20-27% of unwanted fat in the treated area, and the results are for the long term.
The History of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting technology was developed by Dr. Rox Anderson from the Harvard School of Medicine and Dr. Dieter Manstein from the Massachusetts General Hospital. Their research was inspired by the observation that children who consumed popsicles regularly tended to have dimples on their cheeks. After conducting further research, they discovered that the cold popsicles’ temperature caused an inflammation of the fat cells in the cheeks, leading to the “killing” and removal of the dead fat cells from the body naturally. This phenomenon, known as “popsicle panniculitis,” paved the way for the development of the now-popular fat freezing body sculpting technique.
CoolSculpting in Singapore
CoolSculpting was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) in 2009 as a fat reduction technique for the love handles. Since then, the technology has continued to evolve, with new machines and applicators designed to improve the user’s experience and end results.
One of the latest improvements is the CoolSculpting Elite, a more advanced version of its predecessors. The CoolSculpting Elite features a sleeker design, a more modern user interface, and two applicators for DualSculpting, which saves time. It also has more powerful chiller technology for consistent cooling across both applicators. The Elite’s curved templates offer better fit and are easier for practitioners to hold, while the applicators come in seven shapes and sizes, making them suitable for different body curves and ensuring better tissue contact.

CoolSculpting technology has come a long way since its inception, and it continues to evolve. In Singapore, you can now experience the CoolSculpting Elite at Halley Medical Aesthetics and Halley Body Slimming Clinic.
