Body contouring treatments can help patients achieve their ideal body composition and reduce stubborn
fat without requiring that they change their lifestyle. If you’re interested in freezing your fat cells to improve
your body contours and want to know whether CoolSculpting or CryoSlim is right for you, a body
contouring expert can give you more details and help you determine which is the best option.

CoolSculpting Versus CryoSlim in West Melbourne: Which One Is Right for You?

CoolSculpting and CryoSlim are two body contouring treatments that use extremely cold temperatures to
target and destroy stubborn fat cells without requiring that patients undergo a surgical procedure to
achieve their ideal physique. Both treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive and will deliver visible
results after one treatment. If you’re interested in contouring your body without surgery, you may be a
good candidate for either of these treatments.

First, you’ll need to learn more about each one, what they can accomplish, and how they work. The best
approach is to schedule a consultation with an experienced body contouring technician who can confirm
your treatment eligibility for non-surgical body sculpting and recommend the right option based on your
needs, your medical history, and your treatment goals.

What Is CryoSlim?

CryoSlim is a body contouring device by AAMS that uses advanced technology and freezing
temperatures to destroy stubborn fat cells by initiating a process called cryolipolysis. It features a unique
user-assist technology that can analyze each patient’s total fat composition, density, and volume to
ensure the best treatment protocol.

The device handpiece will suction the tissue into the applicator and deliver cold, uniform temperatures to
the fat cells, freezing them and causing cell death. As an alternative to liposuction, CryoSlim forces fat
cells to freeze so that they break down, and the body can eliminate them naturally in the months following

How Effective Is It?

CryoSlim can help patients reduce stubborn fat by 15 to 25% after undergoing the recommended number
of sessions. It can target stubborn fat cells in the most common problem areas of the body and deliver
visible results within a few weeks of the treatment.

How Does It Compare to CoolSculpting?

CryoSlim works similarly but isn’t as popular. It doesn’t have the same reputation as CoolSculpting, nor is it backed by the same amount of research. While it can help patients improve body contours, those
looking for the most reputable and trusted body contouring solution may benefit from a CoolSculpting
treatment plan instead of a CryoSlim treatment plan.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment designed by Allergan Aesthetics, the same
company that introduced BOTOX, JUVÉDERM, and other reputable devices and injectables into the
cosmetic world. It has become the world’s most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment and is FDA-
cleared to reduce fat in almost any body area without requiring the patients to plan around downtime.
This device is backed by ten years of research and has helped countless men and women achieve their
body goals without spending hours at the gym or significantly changing their diets.

How It Works

This body contouring device freezes fat to initiate cryolipolysis. The device will gently suction the skin in
the treatment area into the handpiece and deliver freezing temperatures directly to the area. You’ll feel an
intense cooling sensation, and then your skin will go numb for the rest of the treatment. Once those fat
cells are frozen, they can’t return, and the body will respond by flushing them out of the system.
This process can take time and requires the work of the lymphatic system. As your body flushes out these
fat cells in the following months, you’ll see gradual improvements in your treatment area.

What It Treats

CoolSculpting can eliminate stubborn fat from several different body areas. At The Refinery Medspa &
Wellness locations in Indian Harbor Beach and West Melbourne, we can use it to treat the following:
• Inner and outer thighs
• Love handles
• Muffin top
• Back fat
• Bra fat
• Upper arms
• Inner and outer thighs
• Abdomen

Who It’s Right For

This body sculpting treatment can meet the needs of men and women who already live a healthy lifestyle,
exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet. It can help jumpstart a weight loss program and accelerate the
results of your workout regimen. It’s important to note that this device is not meant for fat loss but for body

It can’t help obese patients lose significant amounts of fat or weight, but it can fine-tune different body
areas to target that stubborn fat that remains resistant to the healthiest lifestyles. Patients should be in
good health, be at or near their goal weight, and be willing to maintain a healthy weight to preserve the
treatment results. Pregnant and nursing women don’t qualify for treatment, nor do those who are sensitive
to extremely cold temperatures.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

Treatment times vary based on the size and number of areas you treat during a session. On average, the
device takes approximately 60 minutes to target each treatment area. We offer dualsculpting, a version of
the treatment that allows us to target two areas simultaneously during the same appointment. This
treatment can save you time and prevent you from scheduling multiple appointments to achieve your
body goals.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Patients who begin a treatment plan with this body sculpting device can expect up to a 24% reduction of
fat cells in their treatment area. Not only can patients expect reduced body fat, but they can also expect to
lose inches and achieve improved body contours.

Is There Any Downtime?

There’s absolutely no downtime after this treatment. Once you schedule and complete the recommended
number of sessions at our Indian Harbor Beach or West Melbourne locations, you can resume all of your
normal daily activities and even go to the gym when it’s over.

How Long Will My Results Last?

One of the many benefits of this body sculpting treatment is that the results are meant to be permanent.
The device initiates cryolipolysis, which causes fat cells to freeze and die. Once the body eliminates
them, they’ll be gone for good.

You’ll have permanently reduced fat volume in your treatment area, and those fat cells won’t be able to
grow back. If you gain weight after your treatment, any remaining fat cells may expand, negatively
affecting your results. The best way to maintain your results long-term is by avoiding significant weight
gain and maintaining the healthiest lifestyle.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients can achieve their desired results after just one treatment. However, multiple sessions may
be necessary depending on your ultimate treatment goals. We can determine the best treatment protocol
for you once we meet with you, learn more about your goals, and evaluate your treatment areas.
