ICE-FIRE Fat Busters

Almost everyone has stubborn fat deposits that they would like to remove. These stubborn fats (love handle, thunder thigh, spare tyre, flabby upper arm, inner thigh, double chin, armpit fat, etc) do not respond to our good diet and exercise routine.

There is no doubt that the trend for non-invasive fat reduction will continue to rise, while surgical liposuction will slowly be relegated. The big question is: Between CoolSculpting® Cryolipolysis vs SculpSure™ low level laser vs truSculpt 3D Radiofrequency, which would offer the best results? We are glad to have the privilege to experience all three different treatments and have seen good results with all of them. However, we would like to delve further into the existing literature to gain a better understanding and share with you the evidence.
Cryolipolysis: CoolSculpting®
Cryolipolysis was introduced in 2007, and worked on the principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures compared to other cells. The effects of cold temperature was first noticed among children who received frozen treats resulting in loss of buccal fat, and was reported as cold panniculitis. CoolSculpting® has been the most well researched treatment for fat reduction. Studies have shown fat reduction of up to 23% on the treated area1, and the patient satisfaction rate is more than 70%.

Thermal lipolysis: SculpSure™ and Trusculpt 3D 
SculpSure™ utilises a hyperthermic diode laser of 1,060nm wavelength, whereas Trusculpt 3D uses Monopolar Radiofrequency to deliver thermal energy to subcutaneous adipose tissue. Scientific papers have shown that elevation of temperature between 42 to 47 degrees Celsius is proposed to result in adipocyte injury and eliciting inflammatory response. SculpSure™ have been shown to be able to result in 25% fat reduction2, whereas Trusculpt treatment advertises up to 24% fat reduction. The percentage of reduction is quite similar for both thermal lipolysis.

Combination therapy: ICE-FIRE FAT BUSTERS
There are few, if any at all, evidence available at this time to support the efficacy of combined therapy with both cryolipolysis as well as thermal lipolysis. Combination therapy for body contouring is still a very exciting idea that remains unexplored, mainly because not many centres have access to the different modalities.

As one of the clinics at the forefront of body sculpting treatments in APAC region, Clique Clinic is always looking for ways to push the limits of body sculpting, including providing you with the latest technologies in body sculpting.
