About The Treatment

Sometimes you feel like you are fighting an unwinnable battle against your body fat. Its as if the odds are stacked against you….Well they may be!

Your body’s fat cells act like a sponge, absorbing and releasing fat as needed. When you train hard and eat clean they release fat for burning as energy, but, the moment you slip up these sponges fill right back up again.

It takes years and years of these cells being empty for the body to permanently rid itself of these cells and once gone it is much harder for the body to store fat.

Previously you had two options to win the battle against stubborn body fat or to spot remove fat: Starve yourself and train very hard for several years or Have them surgically removed (Liposuction).

Liposuction is not without its advantages, however, you will pay the price for those extra helpings at Christmas with potential scarring, loose skin, long and painful recovery time and weeks of post operative care.

Coolsculpting now means that you can literally have your cake and eat it too. By employing a highly sophisticated (and patented) form of cryolipolysis, we are able to specifically kill your fat cells by freezing them.

What To Expect

You will feel a very mild, cold discomfort for around 5 minutes at the beginning of the treatment.

The device will apply a slight suction pressure through its vacuum applicator for between 35 and 75 minutes.

Post Treatment

One of the great things about Coolsculpting is that it is a walk-in, walk-out procedure. You can get back to doing whatever you love straight away with no down time or recovery. You will experience some mild discomfort for a few hours after the fat-freezing treatment but this is a small price to pay for eradicating your unwanted fat cells.

The Results

It only takes one treatment to see noticeable improvement in stubborn fat areas, however, results will vary depending on your unique circumstances. To achieve significant improvement, 2-3 treatments on each target area is optimal. Results can be seen after 3 weeks, however optimal results will be seen at the 3 month mark.

Before & After

Frequently Asked Questions 

Am I a good candidate for Coolsculpting?

The CoolSculpting® fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g. gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.  

 

Your first step should be to contact the Cosmetic Sculpting Clinic and discuss your treatment options. 

Who should not have Coolsculpting?

The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer certain conditions including, but not limited to, cryoglobulinaemia (a blood protein disease), cold agglutinin disease (a rare anaemic autoimmune disease) or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria (a rare autoimmune disease).
The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your registered medical practitioner if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you. 

Can the Coolsculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?

The CoolSculpting® procedure can treat visible fat bulges in the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen and flank (love handle), along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. You can discuss with your clinician about creating a customised treatment plan that’s tailored to your body and your individual goals. 

 

I don’t like my double chin, can Coolsculpting help?

Yes, the CoolSculpting® procedure can treat visible fat bulges under the chin. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as effective as using the CoolSculpting® procedure on other parts of the body (e.g.,abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With CoolSculpting® treatment for a double chin, patients may see results after just 2 visits. 

 

 

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Check out the video on this page to learn more. 

 

 

 

Does the Coolsculpting system have safety features?

As a leading non-invasive fat-reduction treatment worldwide, CoolSculpting® has a well-established safety and efficacy profile. CoolSculpting® systems are controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically. 

 

 

 

 

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes you typically feel intense cold. This should soon become bearable as the treated area numbs. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied.

After the treatment, you may feel some tingling. The area is then massaged for approximately 2 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.  

 

 

 

 

 

What should I tell my sculptor?

During your initial consultation, your physician will ask about your medical history to establish if CoolSculpting® could be right for you. It’s important to tell them if you have any past or present medical conditions, diseases including auto-immune, planning or already pregnant, etc as you may not be able to have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you are pregnant or have certain medical conditions. 

 

 

 

 

 

How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?

You can discuss with your CoolSculpting® sculptor about creating a customised treatment plan that’s tailored to your body and your individual goals.

The length of your CoolSculpting® treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit, however 35-60 minutes should be allowed per treatment depending on the applicators used.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations may subside as the area becomes numb.  
 
Following the procedure, typical side effects include redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, skin sensitivity and numbness. Numbness can persist for up to several weeks. There may be a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental (under chin) treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects such as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (gradual enlargement of treated area), late onset pain, freeze burn, vasovagal symptoms (may include dizziness, sweating, fast or slow heart rate, nausea, paleness, etc), subcutaneous induration/hardened tissue, hyperpigmentation and hernia may also occur. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinaemia (a blood protein disease), cold agglutinin disease (a rare anaemic autoimmune disease) or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria (a rare autoimmune disease). 
The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity.  
 
As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.

 

 

 

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

The CoolSculpting® procedure is non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities almost immediately. Often, patients return to work directly after their CoolSculpting® treatment, this will vary between people and may be dependent on treatment area. 

I’ve had my procedure, now what?

Always be sure to schedule a follow-up assessment with your CoolSculpting® physician to review your results. 

When will I see results?

Most patients see results between 2 and 6 months following treatment. Your body will still continue to remove the destroyed fat cells* for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. The Before & After Gallery shows what results look like several weeks after CoolSculpting® treatment.

The price for CoolSculpting® procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals. 

You will need to discuss a customised treatment plan with your sculptor when you visit us in the clinic.
