Many of us have stubborn, hard to get rid of fat that just won’t budge with diet and exercise. Coolsculpting is a scientifically proven non-surgical device that eliminates fat cells and contours the body. Using controlled cooling technology, one or two treatments may be required to give you lasting results. This is not a weightless treatment, this helps to sculpt your body to the shape you want it to be.
If you can pinch it we can treat it!
Coolsculpting is the original and trademarked Cryolipolysis treatment assisting in the removal of stubborn fat. A scientifically founded treatment from Harvard University.
This treatment is not a weight loss procedure but can assist in reducing up to 20% of the treated fat in a single treatment. It works by freezing (cryo) the fat cells which causes them to die (lipolysis) and then eliminating them through the body over 3 month period.
Coolsculpting is not weight loss surgery, rather a treatment that helps to permanently reduce stubborn areas of fat under the chin and on most areas of the body thereby helping to 'sculpt' a new shape. A full assessment and consultation with our trained Coolsculpting clinicians will determine if any contraindications to this treatment apply for you.
After a Coolsculpting treatment you can expect to experience in the treated area include;
- A tenderness with slight tingling sensation
- Erythema (redness) or bruising
- A feeling of numbness (which dissipates over 6 weeks)
A rare side effect of Paradoxical hyperplasia may occur 2-5 months post treatment. Your clinician will discuss this with you at your consultation.
Once you are ready to be treated an applicator is attached to the area of concern. As the areas begins to cool down there there can be a slight stinging sensation before the area becomes completely numb. The treatment time takes between 35-1 hour 15 mins depending on applicator chosen by your clinician. As the treatment completes the area is then firmly massaged by your clinician to help breakdown further damaged fat cells.
Over the next few weeks the body will gradually eliminate the damaged cells. We like to review your progress at 6 weeks post treatment and again at 3 months. Although the main results are visible at 3months, continual improvements and final results can be seen up to 6 months post treatment.
