Cool Sculpting main

Are you looking for a safe and non-evasive way to lose stubborn fat? As technology progresses, there have been many new fat losing methods invented throughout the years. I’m here to talk about one of those methods.

Have you ever heard of the term “Coolsculpting”? You may have at least heard of this term.

A relatively new procedure that does not involve any surgery or needles.

Since you have clicked on this article, maybe you have heard of this treatment before. Possibly you’ve heard of the word but are not sure what it is.

In this article, I will explain the basic idea behind this procedure, as well as introduce to you 5 clinics for coolsculpting in Japan where you can actually get treated.

*Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

*Note: Before I start explaining, let me remind you that we aren’t experts in this field, and the information that we’re providing in this article is all general info.

If you’re interested in taking this procedure and want to know more about the details, we suggest that you make an appointment at one of these clinics and ask the specialist.

What is Coolsculpting?

Let me write this first since it seems that many people confuse this. “Coolsculpting” is actually not the name of the treatment, but the brand name of the machine that does the procedure. The actual procedure is called “Cryolipolysis”, but this term is not very widely known, so most people refer to this treatment as “Coolsculpting”.

So, to avoid any confusion, I’ll refer to the treatment as Coolsculpting as well.

How it works

The machine is placed in the target area and turned on. The treatment takes somewhere between 35 and 75 minutes.

What this machine does is; freeze only fat cells of a particular area (target area) of your body. By doing this, these fat cells die and with time are cleared out by your immune system, thus resulting in weight loss.

The body areas where this treatment can be used are the following:

  • Under the chin
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Stomach (front belly and sides)
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Along the bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Above the knees

Is it safe?

The machine cools the target area to a specific temperature where only fat cells freeze, therefore there is no worry about damaging your skin, muscles, or blood cells.

*However, if you have any kind of skin condition, please make sure to ask the specialist beforehand.

So, since this procedure doesn’t involve any surgery, needles, and doesn’t harm your body, it has become one of the more popular fat reduction methods out there.

Regarding its validity, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved it in 2010. In Japan, the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare has also approved the validity of the science behind this treatment.

Pros and Cons

The safety and science behind this treatment are as I previously stated. And since there’s no surgery or needles involved, clients can go back to their regular daily lives without the need for recuperation time.

On the other hand, some downsides are the price and time it takes to notice results.

Regarding the time it takes to notice results, this can vary depending on the client, but it can take somewhere between 3 weeks to a couple of months.

Is coolsculpting available in Japan?

As I mentioned above, the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare in Japan has approved this procedure. Therefore, there are various clinics across the country where you can get treated.

However, not all clinics provide services in English.
