What is cooltech®?
The cooltech® treatment is designed to sculpt and redesign the figure comprehensively; to achieve this goal, cooltech® works with different applicators to suit all areas of the body. All of the accessories work at a temperature that oscillates between 3 °C and -8 °C. The difference is due to the temperatures required in the different work areas and the thickness of the fat folds. The cooltech® device allows two accessories to be worked with at the same time thereby optimizing treatment times and ensuring better results in each session.
Which areas can be treated with cooltech®?
cooltech® is designed for treating localized fat located in various areas of the body. It has several applicators designed to adapt to all areas of the body thereby enabling one’s figure to be completely remodeled.
Some of these areas include:
- Inner knees
- Love handles
How much does cooltech® cost?
cooltech® are charged at R1750 per area.

The science behind cooltech® technology
The cooltech® procedure works by a mechanism of action based on the principle of the vulnerability of fat cells (adipocytes) to temperature changes in that freezing adipose tissue causes a controlled cell death (apoptosis of adipocytes). Based on these biological principles, the cooltech® treatment reduces subcutaneous fat in multiple areas of the body with the utmost safety. The cooltech® device works with an adjustable vacuum applicator that acts by selectively encapsulating the fat tissue in its interior thereby decreasing its temperature in a controlled manner and causing apoptosis of fat cells.
What are the benefits of the cooltech treatment?
cooltech treatment allows the subcutaneous fat reduction in certain areas of the body by controlled cooling technology. For this purpose an adjustable applicator vacuum is used for cooling the fat tissue in a selective way, thus the apoptosis of the cells occurs.
How many sessions will I need?
It depends on the kind of patient. It can be between 1-3 sessions in the same area every 6-8 weeks.
How long does the treatment last?
We recommend a 70 minutes treatment session for each treated area. You also have to take into account the preparation time which ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.
Is it painful?
It is a slightly painful method, but still tolerated by the patient. Some patients may feel some discomfort due to the very cold temperatures, but normally only during the first few minutes of the treatment.
When will the results be visible?
The results are visible from the first 15 days and optimal from the 12 weeks after the treatment.
How long does the recovery take?
The procedure allows the patients to return to their daily activity immediately. As the procedure is non-invasive, there is no need for any recovery time.
